I’m a firm believer in what the message of the cross can immensely accomplish in an individuals life if he or she is willing to submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Pay Attention To What You Sing 🎶❗️
We usually are not so attentive to the sort of supposed Christian songs we listen to probably because in many ways we fail to realize that every song carries a certain level and sense of Theology. In less complicated terms,I mean that every Christian song is predicated on a certain type of theological conception or belief of the one who scripts and sings the song. Whether you are aware or not,every Christian operates & functions by some sort of theology either erroneously or in tandem with actual scripture.
Sin Is Deadly!!!
It would be erroneous on the part of any one to think even in the slightest form that the intention of sin is to merely lead you down the path of fulfilling one’s own desires and pleasures. As a matter of fact,the intended effects of partnering with sin on a daily basis is so catastrophic at the end, the beginning of it may not clearly be seen or noticed.The practice of sin for the believer or anyone alike is not a life worth embracing wholeheartedly.I liken it to a small seed that has the inherent nature within it to mature and gravitate towards becoming enormous tree even though it’s potential is often not conspicuous at the onset.
Good Company Corrupts Wrong Behavior
I concur that in a dispensation of biblical literacy and proliferation there are somewhat quite a number of enemies to sound and accurate biblical interpretation and explanation. One in particular that stands out for me which many of us if not all become prone to is the mistake of viewing scriptures through the lens of our own emotions or dispositions to a particular matter or situation. The erroneous attempt to bring exegeses to a text or verses of scripture by casting it within the framework of our own predicaments is what leads many of us to read unqualified meanings into texts that woefully fails to bring their original meaning to light.
Will God Send Me To Hell?
"Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him. Then these men assembled unto the king, and said unto the king, Know, O king, that the law of the Medes and Persians is, That no decree nor statute which the king establisheth may be changed."Daniel 6:14-15 KJV
Admiration Vrs Salvation
I remember not so long ago sitting behind the television whiling away time when an ongoing discussion by some individuals caught my attention. The discussion, as I picked, pivoted around religion of a sort. Fast forward, I couldn’t help but notice how part of the submissions that were assembled by some of the individuals were centered on whether or not Christianity or the God of the Bible as it were had any aorta of truth or authenticity as many believers would purport. One man in particular, as I noticed, kept ranting and huffing about why he vehemently did not believe in God in the way and manner in which the Bible typifies Him. To simply put he didn’t fancy the Christians God. But that was even far from what really pricked my attention further .
Don’t Fall For Satan’s Trap!
"Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.Matthew 4:8-9kjv
Patience Is Not Just A Name But A Weapon
"I waited patiently for the LORD; And he inclined unto me, and heard my cry."Psalm 40:1 KJV There are very few times in the scriptures, where we notice the phraseology 'to wait patiently' being used to depict a certain posture that people take in their dealings with God. We equally hear the phrase countless times within our own social interactions from the very moment we become conversant with language and communication. Whether it’s a parent indulging a child to wait patiently for her/his food to cool down, or a teenager patiently abstaining from sex till marriage or just those brief waits at the traffic stop when it’s on red. Whatever the scenario, to patiently wait in principle is a concept most are familiar with one way or the other.
The Gospel Is Not Always ABC
"Many among his disciples heard this and said, "This is tough teaching, too tough to swallow.""John 6:60 MSG I once overheard a few individuals who happen to be Christians and churchgoers of some degree draw the absurd conclusion that one of the ways to vet or validate the genuineness of a preacher was to take keen note on how simple he or she preached or simply put, how easily the preacher man or woman manages to make them comprehend salient biblical truths within the shortest possible time. The palpable error in this very familiar perspective amongst modern day churchgoers is one that can be felt through the fabric of our church set up.
The God Hypothesis
LETS BEGIN.. Thomas Acquinas, one of the most revered catholic figures was undoubtedly in my candid opinion one of the foremost voices on philosophy and natural theology during the13th century medieval period. Amongst many of the things he thought & wrote about , his thoughts and sentiments on how one greatly needs divine assistance from God in addition to sound reason to properly understand the contents of the Bible is something I have taken great admiration for in my own journey as a christian. He posits that human beings possess the inherent ability to come to terms with a plethora of hidden mysteries by discovering the existing balance between faith/revelation and reason. He did not in any way dispel revelation as he equally believed such experiences had a way of growing our faith . It was on this notion that Aquinas unlike many of his contemporaries in his day especially within the catholic fraternity embraced the philosophical teachings and ideas of men like Aristotle, Plato & the likes with the eventual hope that he could harmonize them with Christian principles without disrupting the fabric of the latter.
Breaking The Law & Grace Code
One of the mysteries that has the ability to deliver us from this typical pressure cooker kind of religion that dictates to us how much of perfection we ought to obtain in order for us to meet God's standard, is the fact that nobody under any kind of deftness or ability can meet the righteous standards of an eternal self existent God. No, not one.
