to pause for 1 minute to pray for someone in your life to come to Jesus.

If 439 people pray 1 minute every day, each month, we will spend 13,170 minutes
a month with the King of Kings  praying for lost souls to come to Jesus!!!  
That is 220 hours a month spent in prayer!!!

Tolerance - the Highest Good?
Dec 04, 2017

The American Heritage Dictionary defines tolerance as "The capacity for or practice of recognizing and respecting the opinions, practices, or behavior of others."

Many in our society have uncritically accepted the supposition that unconditional tolerance is the highest good and social actions must be judged by tolerance.  If tolerance is the highest good, then all else must be judged by it and nothing can be determined without first subjecting it to the "tolerance test". 

However, if tolerance is the highest good, truth, divine revelation and laws all become secondary.  There can be no distinction between right or wrong, no criminal acts and therefore no system of justice, for these all fail the "tolerance test".  God's revealed word and God himself become secondary and therefore relative if tolerance is the highest good.  Sin and the consequences of sin become something only intolerant people consider, for tolerance negates sin and its consequences.  Tolerance also does not allow for discipline and the teaching of right and wrong to children.  Tolerance as the highest good demands that each individual decides all things for himself or herself and that all others, including God, totally accept the individual's decisions and choices.

 I believe there are other values which are higher than tolerance.  The first is the will of God, who is revealed to humanity as the Father, his Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  The inspired word of God, the Holy Scripture, provides the authoritative teachings of God to humanity.  Second is the principle of truth, personified by Jesus Christ, who declared himself to be the truth.  Third is divinely given love, which also is personified by God.  Practiced within the context of and subordinate to these higher values, tolerance is indeed good.

 The practice of tolerance within this context is exemplified by the response of Jesus to the woman caught in the act of adultery.  Others had judged her sinful act and were ready to stone her to death.  Jesus responded to the crowd that the one without sin should cast the first stone.  They all dropped their stones and went away.  Jesus then addressed the woman with the question, "Has no one condemned you?"  "No one, sir," she said.  "Then neither do I condemn you," Jesus declared.  If the story stopped there, tolerance might be considered the highest good in this story.  However, Jesus went on to say to the woman, "Go now and leave your life of sin." 

 The response of Jesus was affirmation of (tolerance of) the woman, but non-affirmation of (intolerance of) adultery.  Jesus called her practice of adultery "your life of sin" and told the woman to leave that way of life. 

Jesus, to use the dictionary definition, did not respect the practices or behavior of the woman, even though Jesus did respect and affirm the woman herself.

 One of the arguments for affirmation of homosexuality and same sex marriage is unconditional tolerance.  How might this biblical story be applied to the question of what constitutes a Christian response to the practice of homosexuality?  Can we be loving and accepting of all people and yet not be accepting of all their actions?  How might Jesus respond today to the increasingly normative societal expectation that churches provide marriage ceremonies for same sex couples?  These are questions for all of us to consider.

You and I Are Not God
Oct 16, 2017

WHO IS GOD?

Some people believe we are all God. We are all Christ. Love is supreme and all that really matters is to love one another. As important as love is in Christianity, it does not equate to us being equal to God or Christ. That is a false and misleading teaching. You and I are not God or Christ. Carefully consider the following Bible teaching about Jesus Christ.

 

THE PREEMINENCE OF CHRIST

"He (referring to Jesus) is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him, if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister."

Colossians 1:15-23, English Standard Version (ESV)

 

JESUS CHRIST IS GOD

Jesus Christ is not only equal to God, Jesus is God. Only Jesus came from Heaven, not as we humans did from the dust of the earth. Upon his death on the cross, Jesus in his earthly body returned to Heaven, not to the dust of the earth, as humans do when we die. He is Lord of all creation, including every person. Only Jesus Christ is the image of the invisible God. You and I can trust in him for our life, our death, and our eternal salvation.

Satan's Plan and God's Plan
Sep 02, 2017
1

Here's Satan's plan against us broken down into 5 seeds he tries to plant in us . . .

1. Doubt - This seed makes you questions God's word and His goodness.

2. Discouragement - This seed makes you look at your problems rather than looking to God for help.

3. Diversion - This sneaky seed makes the wrong things seem attractive so you will want them more than the "right" things.

4. Defeat - This seed makes you feel like a complete failure so you give up and don't even try.

5. Delay - This seed makes you put off doing something so it never gets done.

God has a better plan...trust in Jesus with your whole heart, learn His ways, and live your life with and for Him.
