  • Holy Days

    Contributed by John Scott on Jun 30, 2014
     | 1,513 views

    We are not to let others judge us for not participating in Holy Days or judge others who are participating in Holy Day's celebrations. Christ is the one we need to over come our sins. Christ is our righteousness.

    1. There was a man who we use to worship with who felt like we should have been more a part of Advent and Holy Week. A. He threatened that he would not worship with us unless we went through the observation of Holy Week activities. B. Many in the very traditional church will celebrate a calendar ...read more

     | 1,078 views

    We cannot enter the kingdom of heaven through religious observance, but we can through knowing Christ!

    Jesus’ view of scripture: Jesus was often accused of breaking the Sabbath day (Mt 12:1-2). Jesus’ disciples were accused of not following tradition (Mt 15:2), and Jesus himself was accused of blasphemy. Much more than just eyebrows were raised when Jesus entered the temple at Jerusalem, as he ...read more

    Christ clearly teaches that it is not religious observance or our goodness that saves. Christ teaches that it simply takes child-like faith. But what does it mean to come to God in child-like faith?

  • A Jealous God Series

    Contributed by Robert Leroe on Mar 4, 2015
     | 4,164 views

    God is “jealous” in the sense that He expects complete, exclusive devotion; not merely a partial, lukewarm, half-hearted religious observance. Worship belongs to God. He is worthy of worship and has a right to be “jealous” of it.

    The Bible clearly teaches that God is a jealous God. That doesn’t sit well with us; the very notion of the jealousy of God sounds offensive. We think of jealousy as an entirely negative quality--a sin. Yet God declares that He is jealous. God restricts allegiance to Himself alone: ...read more

    Unless our confidence is in God it's in the wrong place.

    WHERE’S YOUR CONFIDENCE? 1) Why do we lack confidence? • We listen to the devil. You know how he is. Whispering away to get us to doubt. He’s been doing it from the beginning with Eve. Whispering to her, getting her to question God. Unfortunately it worked. He does the same ...read more

  • Flesh

    Contributed by Lou Nicholes on Nov 28, 2004
    based on 5 ratings
     | 699 views

    . Paul has already made it clear that there must be an inward change of heart and obedience to the law, and that mere external observances can never save a lost sinner. Now Paul proceeds to show how Abraham was pronounced righteous before he was circumc

    THOUGHTS ABOUT THE PASSAGE: The flesh is a built-in law of failure, making it impossible for the natural man to please or serve God. It is a compulsive inner force inherited from man’s fall, which expresses itself in general and specific rebellion against God and His righteousness. The flesh can ...read more
