Our hearts are deceitful.  Sometimes people are covering up their sins when they think they are dealing with their sins.

Below are some indications to see if you are covering up your sins rather than dealing with them biblically with each point we have examples provided:

Is church discipline unloving?  How many times it has happened in churches all across America where leaders in the church say practicing church discipline as described in the Bible in such places as Matthew 18 is “unloving.”  Then their reasoning continues with the conclusion that “if  church discipline is unloving therefore we should not practice church discipline.”

We as Christians must ask if this type of argument is biblical.

Let me be clear up front that I think people can mess up church discipline in an unloving manner, just like how people can mess any good and right act outwardly with a wrong motive and attitude.

However the issue I want to deal with is whether church discipline in of itself is “unloving.”  I think the contents of the book of 1 Corinthians helps us answer this question biblically.

Please Pray for My Church

a-man-praying

I normally don’t post things on here that’s personal.  This post is one of those exceptions.

I couldn’t write any posts last night and today because of a serious issue with my church.

It’s kind of unspoken.

It’s been a burden I’ve been carrying for two years.

Can you please pray for my church to be biblical?

The need of decision for the truth Spurgeon

Charles Spurgeon. The Need of Decision for the Truth. Scriptura Press, December 11th 2015. 23 pp.

This was originally a chapter in Charles Spurgeon’s classic, Lectures to My Students.  Although it was originally preached and written in the 1800s the content of The Need of Decision for the Truth is relevant even for the twentieth-first century.  In the beginning of the book Spurgeon talks about how people in his “present age” seem to think “Some things are either true or false, according to the point of view from which you look at them.  Black is white, and white is black according to circumstances; and it does not particularly matter which you call it.”  I was amazed to read these words in the book’s opening paragraph for that describes our time so accurately as well!  It reminded me that the attack on truth is nothing new, and truly the Bible is right when Ecclesiastes says that there is nothing new under the sun.  The rest of the book is focused on the importance of truth and the manner of Christian truth-bearing.

It has been over two years that the Islamic State has been around.

News about what’s going on down on the ground is hard to come back.  Which is what makes these three documentaries produced by Vice Documentary on ISIS quite amazing.  I think they are quite insightful.

As a Christian it has led me to pray for the people under ISIS control and for the Christians and the various minorities in the area of Syria and Iraq.  My prayers are also for the Sunnis and Shiites too.  Including for them to come to know the Lord and Jesus’ saving power.

Here’s the three documentary in chronological order.

thief

A Muslim from Nigeria tried to add me on facebook the other day.  He has been going around online as a troll attacking Christianity.  One of his charge against Jesus is that the Bible taught Jesus and His Disciples were thieves.  That is, Jesus and disciples stole things from people.  In a post titled “CAN WE CALL THIS AUTHORITY STEALING OR WHAT” this is what the individual wrote:

Mathew 12:1- King James Bible
At that time Jesus went on the
sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungered, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.

Jesus was reported to also enter a farm that belongs to someone on a Sabbath day to take corn without the knowledge of the owner.

.Bible says that when Jesus was caught plucking corn, he said, have they not read it how David went into the Synagogue on a Sabbath day to eat what does not belongs to him.

My position is that Matthew 12:1 in CONTEXT does not teach Jesus and His disciples were stealing.  Here’s my reply (note: while the Muslim troll quoted from the KJV, I’ll be using the NASB):
