The Reformation

Posted 10-02-2020 at 10:23 AM by snowduck

Matthew 15:9 - They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules. - Most of us have not been able to take a road trip this year, but when we do we want our maps, g.p.s or whatever to be accurate. And accuracy regarding God's word is what the leaders of the church reformation worked for. Christ had the same problem. Before the reformer's work became successful in the fifteen hundreds there was only one church in the whole world that would permit no others and was willingly preaching...

Posted 08-28-2020 at 09:30 AM by snowduck

Matthew 23:12 - For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. - This scripture is part of a parable which is described by Eastons Bible dictionary as "an earthly (fictional, this word mine) story with a heavenly meaning," "A large portion of our Lord's public teaching consisted of parables". Whether Christ was speaking in parables or using regular language it was always a teachable moment for us, and he makes it clear that he...

Not Gonna Happen

John 10:28-30 - I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” In the mid 70's there was a television show called "Kung Fu" about a young man learning that skill. Part of his training was trying to grab a pebble out of one of his teacher's hands before the teacher closed it. Eventually the young man was...

Misconceptions

Posted 05-28-2020 at 09:20 AM by snowduck
Updated 05-28-2020 at 09:39 AM by snowduck

I did this subject years ago and I think it's important because some misconceptions about Christianity can be dangerous because they mislead people so I'm doing it again.
