Liberal religion

February 24, 2017

An example of Liberal religion: Obama’s speech where he mocks the Bible, but would never dare do the same to the Koran. These are his Liberal religious views. Under freedom of religion he is obviously free to have his religious views, but it’s the pretense that such views are not religious which we find objectionable.

When Obama calls Islam “a great religion” he is affirming he believes Islam is true. How could one say it is “great”, but they don’t believe it is true? So, this is an example of a Liberal expressing his religion, but then claiming it’s not religious.

Good things

February 24, 2017

Things which cause genuine thanksgiving to God are good things.

Worthy

February 24, 2017

Jesus Christ is infinitely worthy of our trust.

Defender of the faith

February 22, 2017

The truth never needs defending, but it’s right to defend it, in the same way God does not need anyone to worship Him, but it’s right to worship Him.

No fans and no fan club

February 21, 2017

Paul wanted people to follow his example, he never wanted fans or a fan club.

The spiritual blank

February 21, 2017

“For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.” (Matthew 25:14-18)

The man who received one talent “played it safe”, he did not risk offending anyone by sharing the truth.

By not doing anything he did not risk anything.

By not sharing what God has given you you will have a nice, convenient, trouble-free life, just like the one talent man, you can avoid all kinds of unpleasantness, all controversies, never get into an argument, keep your nose clean the whole time.

By hiding your talent the whole world may love you. Certainly, no one’s gonna bother you, as you don’t bother them, your talent is safe and well hidden out of view.

They are a “spiritual blank” . Christian? Yes. But a blank. A nice person, no doubt, but an empty shell.

The Royal Priesthood

February 20, 2017

The Royal Priesthood (1 Peter 2:9) is always doing what priests do: interceding for others.

FILLED or not filled

February 19, 2017

I’ve been discussing lately what it means to be “filled” with the Holy Spirit.

Here’s an example between being filled and not filled. Someone brings a demon possessed person to your house for deliverance, then you realize you are not filled enough with the Holy Spirit to do it, and you wish you were, as you have been in times past.

It highlights the fact there are certain things in the Christian life you just can’t do unless you’re filled with the Holy Spirit.

Understanding

February 19, 2017

When Christians do not understand what the Bible teaches they get deceived and they are deceived, it’s as simple as that, and you can be sure of that.

Simple logic

February 19, 2017

A comment i made on FB: If it were valid to be a “Lutheran” or a “Calvinist”, then, by the same reasoning it would be valid to be a “Paulinist” , or, if you don’t like Paul, be a “Peterite” etc. Maybe people don’t get the logic of it.

Good at praying

February 19, 2017

It’s not so much that we’re good at praying, but that we pray.

The flesh is the flesh

February 18, 2017

In encountering sin in any professing Christian we are in some sense encountering ourselves, our flesh is no better than their flesh.

Everyone needs the Savior

February 18, 2017

For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”
(James 2:10)

This is why we all need a Savior, for we have all broken the law.

Understanding world politics

February 18, 2017

I don’t think you can understand world politics any more than you can understand the criminal mind.

Spiritual drought

February 18, 2017

When there’s drought you pray for rain, when there’s a spiritual drought you pray for revival.

Peace will come

February 18, 2017

The Bible says God will bring peace on earth, not by making a deal with His enemies, but by destroying them.

Flat earthers

February 18, 2017

Who would have thought thirty years ago that the “great falling away” would unravel itself into such a tangled mess, that the departure from the faith prophesied in the Bible would primarily be whacko-ness. Here’s an example, you may come across “Christians” who are “flat earthers”. No, it’s not a joke. I thought they were joking, but came to find out they really believe the earth is flat, and that a round earth is a colossal conspiracy. Now, some of these “Christians” claim to believe everything in the Bible. This is just one example of the mysterious nature of the “great falling away”, the apostasy of Christendom in the last days. See, what is presented is a people who claim to believe in Jesus, believe the Bible, BUT in actual real life are psychos, totally off the rails.

Beauty and its Creator

February 18, 2017

I love the Creator of beauty, the One who created the concept of beauty and also created the faculties to appreciate it.

The greatest power

February 18, 2017

The love of Jesus Christ is the greatest power on earth.

Hyper-spirituals

February 18, 2017

Hyper-spirituals don’t connect with Jesus as they are more spiritual than Him.
