Why aren’t we scared to death by what we have done to God’s Word? Why is it that folks accept, without question, the changes that have been made to God’s Word? We should shutter at what we have done — all under the guise of “Jesus did away with the Law.”
It wasn’t ever easy for me to slice up the Bible like a pie or cake. If God is anything, He is a unified, consistent, uncomplicated God. The reality that we tend to think otherwise is proof once again that we try to create God in our own image: a discombobulated, inconsistent, complicated mess.
I, for one, refuse any longer to believe God is anything less than He is. He is, always has been, and always will be the same yesterday, today and forever.
I’ve been married 40 years. It’s been long enough for me to realize, and admit, that we men at times are so … in our own way. Pig headed. Stubborn. Proud. Too small to admit we need help or that we have made decisions that weren’t quite right - wrong even?
(This is not the same as last week’s blog)
“Is It Not Lawful?”
13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? 14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
I read this passage this morning. It seemed appropriate to write about this especially in light of last week’s blog: “It Is Not Lawful.”
“It Is Not Lawful”
Who said that?
To whom was is said?
Why was it said?
What was the outcome?
Shalom, everyone! We are now meeting in the Newfields Community Church at 71 Main St. Newfields NH 03856. Saturdays at 10am. See you there!
One of the most common complaints we run into when trying to tell people about their need for salvation is that they don’t like or trust religion. You know what? Neither did Yeshua. He stood in complete contrast and opposition to the “religion” of His day.
Matthew 4:1 —Then was Yeshua led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
Yeshua was tempted, really? To be honest, I can’t picture it. Exactly how was Yeshua tempted? Wouldn’t you like to know? I would. Why weren’t more specifics given? I would find it comforting to know … maybe?
Let’s think about this.
