The Uncertain Evangelical Gospel

Road Question Mark

The current shift from faith in truth to faith in ones outward good works is based on a rejection of written truth.

Specifically, on the written words of God.

The Beginning of Knowledge

Tyrannosaurus Skeleton Mouth

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Proverbs 1:7)

This verse surprised me.

I’ve read through Proverbs many times in my life. But I’ve always thought it only said, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Which it does, in fact, say in Proverbs 9.

But, the fear of the LORD also applies to knowledge. Which touches on a whole different kind of understanding.

And it occurred to me that all the hoopla that men have for the pursuit of science, is based on a false premise.

Which is, that the pursuit of knowledge, or science, is the same as the pursuit of Truth. Truth that encompasses physical reality. Or all that is true about the natural world.

Wisdom Cries Out!

skeletons see hear speak

Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: she crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the opening of the gates.;” (Proverbs 1:20-21a)

I often wonder why simple, good, right thinking is not followed in our world.

And then I realize that this is not a new problem.

Wisdom has been crying out all through history. It has been screaming from the rooftops.

But men and nations have rejected the words of scripture from the most ancient of times.

So, this is not a case where the words of wisdom are not being heard. Men clearly hear what God is saying.

It’s just a simple case of men rejecting God’s words.

The leadership of our own country is ignoring God’s wisdom today. They are rejecting God’s Truth while trying to establish some other way to follow.

To establish some new Way. And to follow some new Path.

Like someone trying to find a black cat, in a vast dark cave, at midnight.

Liberals Hate Rules

Referee

We have rules in this country.

Following the Rule of Law is essential to the preservation of Freedom.

Those rules apply to everyone.

Individuals, at all levels of power, must follow those rules; as the rest of us do.

Many individuals, currently in authority, are not following the rules.

Our lives and our country will be torn apart unless those in authority stop making excuses for not following the rules.

How God Forgives Us: Conclusion – No Other Sacrifice

Hymn Hands Uplifted

Taking the extreme here, consider this verse that often confuses believers over the issue of forgiveness.

“…there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins…” (Hebrews 10:26-31).

This verse is often misunderstood regarding how sin, in a believer’s life, might cause him to lose his salvation. And, having sinned, is left without remedy.

However, it doesn’t mean that.

It means that the Lord has already provided us with everything we need. Whenever we sin.

It means nothing remains to be done in order to have forgiveness.

In other words, there is NO additional work to be done. There is NO additional forgiveness one must search for beyond the complete sufficiency of Jesus Christ.

How God Forgives Us

Shame

Sometimes, we follow things received by tradition rather than from the Word of God. 

One of the most common misunderstandings of this Christian life is in relation to our sins and our fellowship with God.

We have been taught incorrectly about HOW to stay in fellowship with God. The effect of this misunderstanding is a continual inward anxiety over our performance and right-standing with the Lord.

Saved by Works of “Love”?

labyrinth-4300600_1280

What is the greatest need of man?

If he gains all that this world has to offer, yet loses his soul, his loss will be felt through all eternity.

Consider that for a moment. If one would gain all the wealth, fame, adulation, pleasure, and happiness possible in this world, but loses his soul, the tragedy would be beyond imagination.

Yet, those leading our churches have forgotten this foundational truth.

They’ve forgotten that we are eternal beings. We were not made for this world. We were not designed to seek our fulfillment here.

Nor to help others to find their fulfillment here.

A “Kind” Orthodoxy: Conclusion – Loving People into Heaven

wooden-bridge-919081_1280

Why trimmest thou thy way to seek love? therefore hast thou also taught the wicked ones thy ways.” (Jeremiah 2:33)

Brian McLaren, along with other Emergent and Progressive teachers, states that he is not being absolute in his statements. He says that he may be wrong. But, then again, he may be right. And that he is trying to be provocative in order to make people think.

How nice.

This has become a popular way of writing and teaching today. Christians think they are being humble by not taking hard positions on Truth. By not being so dogmatic about their beliefs.

They think that casting doubts upon biblical truth is not harmful. That it is a neutral thing.

But it isn’t.

It is simply another technique used to De-Constructthe faith once delivered unto the saints“.

Make an Eternal Difference

City Office Windows Night

When I look at the world around me, even at my own small-town world, it seems unfathomable that the vast majority of those people I know will never see eternal life; but will spend an eternity in the Lake of Fire. 

I don’t know how to deal with that. It is sobering. It is horrifying. And it is heartbreaking. 

But it drives me to pray. To pray that the Lord will help me to be faithful in presenting His truth to those around me.
