Dressing up for Church?

Thus, there isn’t anything wrong with dressing up for Church, but there could be everything wrong with dressing up for church! Is that really you, or a show? Are you trying to display something/someone you aren’t? Is Sunday really different than Monday? Is who we are different one day to the next?

Convinced, or Convicted?

I recall a woman telling me about taking her son to a football game for the first time who had to leave early in a panic attack, because she had been convinced for so long that if Jesus came back for his Bride, and you were at a ball game, you would be left behind! “For God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power, and love and self control.”

YouTube Reboot – Introduction to Galatians

As our YouTube Channel gets a reboot we are focusing on teaching through the book of Galatians – the definitive teachings of the Apostle Paul on Justification by Faith, and the one true Gospel!

The Commandments Of Man – Vain Worship

Isaiah 29 is nearly verbatim to the condition of Israel in Jesus’ day. The people were hypocrites, doing lip-service to God but in truth, they were creating a system of fear-based on their own traditions, as if they were the commandment of men. 

The True Touch of Grace

Jesus Christ – our propitiation, paid the penalty of our sin – it is our solemn duty to place our faith in Him, accept the generous and free Gift of Salvation and then take that Joy to the World!

Chance, or ‘Choice’ Encounters?

No wonder that when Jesus spoke of the parable of the wedding feast in Luke 14 he said, “Go out into the hedges and the highways and compel them to come, that my house may be full!” I spent 15 years of my life in Christ believing and being taught that God wasn’t anywhere to be found except at 1145 Wallace Road. You couldn’t go to the beach, the mountains, the park, the bar, and find Christ, and most certainly, you couldn’t be a light for Him in those places – your work, His work, ALL the work, was in Church.

Solae Fide ~ By Faith Alone

It isn’t your faith which produces works (that you perform) that saved you, it was your faith in Christ, who did the necessary works, that saved you and produced works in you!

The danger of inferring Doctrines from Examples in Scripture

The Jewelry thing (the abstinence doctrine) is a very implicit argument that requires the believers to ignore the entirety of the Bible, and even the words of Jesus, the culture of the people in question and the documented and archeological history of the audience to which this was written, and re-interprets the explicit meanings and statements therein to fit their implicit narrative.
