The word of God is sufficient.

If this truth gets a grip of your heart you might even become a solid Bible teacher.

….

A Bible teacher or commentator can sound very wise by ignoring the portions of scripture he can’t explain or which contradict his views.

…..

“For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.” (Rom. 8:3-4)

What is it that the law could not do?

It couldn’t take out the heart of stone and replace it with a new, tender heart of flesh.

It couldn’t empower the hearer to keep the moral law. It could only tell them they’re wrong.

It couldn’t set them free from their sins.

It couldn’t forgive their sins.

It couldn’t engrave or inscribe those laws in the heart of man.

But God, through Christ, can and will do all of these.

…….

What is the best thing going?

It’s to know Jesus Christ.

……

Jesus said, “Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” (John 7:38)

Time for a flow check.

…….

The struggle between good and evil will not be resolved by both parties reaching a compromise or settlement. Good won’t accept evil, and darkness won’t accept the light.

It will be resolved by Jesus Christ when He comes to judge the world.

……

Lack of faith is nothing to be proud of.

And faith is nothing to be proud of.

……

Open your mouth and talk to God.

What do you think?

Is He worth talking to?

…..

The world is, both, a stage where sin is played out, and where Jesus’ love reaches sinners and redeems them from their sins. Out of great tragedy springs great hope. In great darkness a light springs forth. There is great evil, and there is great redemptive love, both being played out on the same stage, side by side.

……

Is God your Father?

……

If you’ve chosen to live without Christ, have you fully understood the consequences of your choice?

…….

The power of God and the love of God are intertwined. His power is an expression of His love.

……

There is only one person who perfectly understands you, and His name is Jesus Christ.

……

With so many sick and dying around us, wouldn’t it be appropriate to be just that little bit extra thankful to God for the gift of good health?

…….

First, God created plants, with complex nutritional properties. Then, he created man to run on those nutritional values. The logic was, first, make everything man will need to live, then, make man in such a way that his body will be nourished and sustained by those complex nutritional factors.

If we are wise we will keep this in mind when we choose our diet.

And glorify Him for His design and wonderful provision.

……

Everyone understands the Bible is true the moment after they die.

……

If the world is crazy, and the world affirms you, then what does that make you?

……

God’s absolute Sovereignty, and man’s responsibility, are two parallel truths. People err when they emphasize one at the expense of the other. We have to accept both truths equally, or we are trapped in a circular argument, trading one for the other.

….

By definition, a Christian is one who has been persuaded by Christ, not by man.

……

We can do anything God has called us to do. Which should be obvious.

……

If things are not okay, it’s still okay, if the Lord is with you.

……

The sins of your race or nation

We can’t apologize for what others have done, but we can acknowledge the evil of it.

….

It’s never a question of which religion is “best” or “better” than other religions, it’s a question of Jesus saying that no one comes to the Father except through Him.

…….

When Trump was in office, Republicans objected to Dems mocking the President. Now, Dems are objecting to Republicans mocking the President.

We shouldn’t mock anyone, whether President or janitor.

‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’, Jesus said.

……

“Do not speak evil of one another, brethren. He who speaks evil of a brother and judges his brother, speaks evil of the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy. Who are you to judge another?” (James 4:11-12)

a. In this letter, James is doing a whole lot of general judging in a righteous manner, but he doesn’t “speak evil” of anyone in particular. He doesn’t mock, despise or belittle anyone who is sinning, and this is what he means when he warns of “judging a brother”. And, it goes further than simply being rude toward someone, but it means to condemn the person as if you were God, as if you were their judge, and as if it is for you to decide their fate.

b. If we take the place of God and, as it were, push Him aside and take His place as judge, then we are judging Him and His laws. We would be rejecting and mocking Divine order, because, if God has appointed us as judges that would make His law redundant.

c. There is a big difference between condemning someone’s actions and condemning them as a person. The law judges the action. So, that is sufficient. Judge every action according to God’s word without sitting in condemnation over the sinner.

d. Jesus warned that those who label others as fools or morons are in danger of hell fire. They are playing God.

e. We cannot assume this prohibition only applies to judging brothers, and we are allowed to judge those who are not brothers. No.

……

Anyone who follows Jesus and goes to Heaven gets a free house, forever.

That’s a real promise Jesus gave.

It’s not an election promise.
