Risen with Christ!

Clouds Parting Bright Yellow

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” (Colossians 3:1-4)

A Christian is already living in Resurrected Life NOW.

We are not talking of physical life here. This is about our spiritual life.

This is what it means when a person must be “born again”. Born a second time.

A true Christian is living what is actually an Imputed Life.

Which can only be true if God has declared us to be both Crucified and Risen. We can only be risen with Christ if we have already been crucified, dead, and buried.

Faith in Our Own Good Intentions

Monkey looking in mirror

When churches preach against selfishness, they assume that a Christian will be ashamed and then do selfless things.

That is the theory.

But there is a fatal flaw in this thinking.

The Christian cannot overcome his “self”. Only the Lord is able to accomplish this.

Only by yielding ourselves to His working within us are we able to do anything that is good. And keep from doing anything that is bad.

I’ve been listening to a lot of preachers these days who are trying to establish a new principle of Christian living.

Namely, that Christians should not be critical or divisive in their speech. As in criticizing a leader or teacher within one’s own church. Or by criticizing a well-known preacher, writer, or ministry. Especially a leader or ministry that is respected by one’s own church.

The basis for this new principle comes from the idea that Christians are to be known “by our love”. By our love for each other. And by our love for all the people in the world.

This love principle is contrasted against being known by our correct orthodoxy or accurate interpretation of scripture, or our defense of some doctrinal position. Which are each, supposedly, based on our own preferences or “tribal” affiliations.

But is this “non-critical” posture really biblical? Is this truly what the Lord has told us to do?

The Church of Science

Saucer Alien Man

I was watching a YouTube video the other day about ET spacecraft technology. It was very compelling. The gist of it was that man has been using technology supplied by “aliens” for quite some time.

This has been something I’ve followed for many years. Namely, the idea that man has been visited by benevolent “space brothers” who are trying to help man. To bring man back from the brink of his own destruction. From all his messing around with nuclear weapons and environmental pollution.

Kind of like the movie, The Day the Earth Stood Still. The black and white 50’s version.

Where we are welcomed into the great league of galaxies to join our “brothers” in the stars.
