Stone Throwers

Uncategorized

 

 

The religious crowd can be so ruthless! Remember the woman caught in adultery? Here the religious mob had dragged her before Christ. In their mind, they had caught a sinner, a sinner who deserved to die for her sin! Now, it is not that they were wrong, but the hypocrisy in it all is that they were sinners too! They also deserved to die for their sins! When Jesus exposed them for their hypocrisy, they departed one by one, from the youngest to the oldest!

Yes, today we still have religious people who are all too eager to “throw stones.” Yet, all the while living in sin themselves! Oh, how many haven’t suffered at the hands of the religious ones! Perhaps, you also have been the victim of their hard-heartedness?

Yet, we see that Jesus didn’t come to “throw stones,” that is “to condemn,” but rather that the people may be “saved”! In fact, Jesus allowed them to “throw stones” at Him in order to save us from our sins – from their consequences! Yes, Jesus died on the cross, having been handed over by the religious leaders! It was these that incited the crowds to call for his crucifixion! Yes, indeed, religion stands against the gospel of grace! Remarkably, religion stands for “self-righteousness”! It has an air of, “I am holier than thou”! On the hand, the grace of God reaches down to where we haven been cast down in the ditch, and unlike the religious ones, stops and has compassion on the one cast down and left half dead!

Living Sacrifice

Christian Life

 

 

Have you considered, my brothers and sisters in Christ, after all God has done for you, will you now live out the remainder of your life in selfish pursuits? Have you ever pondered whether God is calling you to give yourself up for His cause? Have you thought about these words? “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10) Are we still determining what we want to do with our lives, and then seeking God’s blessing on it? Have you reflected on this verse that says God has plans for you that He prepared in advance for you to walk in? Perhaps it is time to stop looking out for “#1”! That is, looking out for our own comforts and begin to serve others in whatever capacity God is calling us to! Listen to these words in light of all that God has already done for us, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers [and sisters], by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” (Romans 12:1)

Being Judgemental

Uncategorized

 

 

Are we as Christians to make judgements? Is it okay to voice disapproval? So often today we hear the refrain, “Don’t be judgemental!” This, when we express ourselves in a way that does not agree with the person we’re in discussion with. So, just where do we draw the line? Is it okay to make our disapproval known when a student makes a mistake in their work? What if a person has a lifestyle of being a thief? Are we free to verbalize our objection, or are we being judgemental if we do? What about our beliefs? Do we have liberty to disagree with others, or must we keep our opinions and beliefs to ourselves? Are we to be silent, or is it okay to speak up and say something when we believe someone is out of line? Is it fine to speak with conviction? What does the Bible have to say as to this subject at hand? Let’s take a look!

Saved from What?

Uncategorized

 

So often we hear people say, “You need to get saved!” Yet, for many, it is puzzling as to what we are to be saved from! And when explained, it seems that the answer falls far short of satisfactory! For it seems that all that is said is that, we need to be saved from Hell! Now, this may be true, but is this really all? Also, we find a lack of explanation as for why we are in danger of Hell! Let us then attempt to undertake what we need to be saved from, and the necessity to be saved!

Does Sin Have Consequences?

Christian Life

 

 

Indeed, we ought to understand that the unsaved person is going to meet with drastic consequences for their sin, but what about the Christian? Now that we are “under grace,” does this mean that we can sin without any repercussions? Does God only “smile down” upon the Christian now, or are there still consequences for our actions? Further to this, do Christians still sin and then have to be forgiven for those sins? These are all important questions, and we need to grapple with them and come to a conclusion on this! So let’s get to it!

Why do Christians Suffer?

Christian Life

 

 

There’s no debate, Christians are suffering all around the world for various reasons! Yet, we ask, “Is it supposed to be like this?”  “Is my life not supposed to be a happy one?” “Aren’t we supposed to be healthy all the time?” “Am I not to be well off financially?” Perhaps we’ve been told that, “As long as you have enough faith,” or, “Long as there is no sin in your life, all will be well”? For, again and again, we see plastered over our screens, messages saying that, we need only “pronounce,” or “tell God” the way it is, and all will be well with you! Now, it would be great if life were that easy, but is this actually the message Jesus gave us? Is this the message of the Bible? For many have begun to think there is something wrong with them when God does not seem to answer them. They think there must be a lack of faith or some sin in their lives, but is it true? Yes, it makes for a great message to preach such, but is it true? Let us see then where our real hope lies!

How to be Saved?

Uncategorized

 

 

No greater question could ever be asked! Truth be told, we were all born with a bent to go our own way. We lived in defiance against God! We lived in rebellion against Him! We all lived, lusting after the things that brought pleasure to ourselves! We didn’t want anybody, especially God, telling us what we could and couldn’t do! The Scriptures say, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned – every one – to his own way.” (Isaiah 53:6) Again, “All have turned aside.” (Romans 3:12)

Yet, despite our rebellion against God, He demonstrated His love for us by sending His only begotten Son to save us – to save you! Do you want to be saved? Do you want to know for sure that Heaven will be your home? Then let us together see the way to be saved and know it!

Lies Preachers Preach

Uncategorized

 

 

How crafty Satan is! What better way, than to infiltrate the church, and place his workers there disguised as pastors and such like! Dress them up in suits and ties, and suddenly people are disposed to listen to what they have to say! Wrap up the poison in a lathering of Bible verses, and many more are apt to accept the lies being subtly presented! So, what are these lies preachers preach? Let’s see!
