This is a serious and important post.

One of the most frightening passage from the Bible is what Jesus said:

Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [n]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

(Matthew 7:22-23)

The consequences of being a false Christian has too much at stake for eternity.

You want to make sure you really are a Christian.  You want to make sure you genuinely will be going to heaven.  Of course going to heaven is not by our own works, but the works of Christ.  But you got to have genuine trust in Christ’s person and work.  You need to be rooted in Christ.

How do you know you are rooted in Christ?  Here’s a biblical diagnostic spiritual DNA test.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who created heaven and earth?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

God the Father did it all by himself.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, “I, the Lord, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone,” (Isaiah 44:24)

Jesus did it.

There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light. 9 There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.” (John 1:6-10)

For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.” (Colossians 1:16)

Both of them did it.

yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.” (1 Corinthians 8:6)

Ray Comfort. What Did Jesus Do?: A Call to Return to the Biblical Gospel.  Bartlesville, OK: Genesis Publishing Group, July 25th 2005. 176 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a good book on how to evangelize.  This is written by Ray Comfort, who is quite an evangelist himself.  I love Ray Comfort’s own personal example of being an evangelist.  He wrote this book in an manner that is easy to understand and also practical.  Today’s contemporary church is often filled with bad doctrines and light on the Gospel so there’s a crisis with how Christians evangelize today in a manner that is unbiblical and unfaithful to God and the Gospel.  So this work is much needed.  I personally got this book as part of a discipleship tool with some of our guys in church to train them to think not only biblically about evangelism but to live it out.

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Were the disciples frightened or glad when they saw Jesus?

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

They were frightened when they saw him.

But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit.” (Luke 24:37)

They were gladdened.

And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples then rejoiced when they saw the Lord” (John 20:20)

The Resurrection of Jesus-Why it Matters

As with many other core doctrines of Historical Orthodox Christianity, the Doctrine of the Resurrection is under assault from many quarters. Obviously, atheists and humanists discount the account of the Resurrection just like they discount all other Biblical accounts of anything. We are not surprised by their disbelief at all, as it makes perfect sense from their worldview. Surprisingly, and more disturbingly, is the assault on the account of the Resurrection coming from supposedly “Christian” denominations and scholars. Sadly, even among the so-called Christian Church, the Resurrection is dismissed as not historically accurate, or as simply not key or important to core doctrines. Here are a couple of examples of so-called Christian theologians who promote a far less than literal account of the Resurrection.

It will not start off as wine

One of my greatest challenges is that I like to be in the know. I love to plan and to know exactly the process involved in anything I do. I like to know why, how, what and when. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It is good to be informed and aware of what is going on around us. However, many times in my life I have found myself getting frustrated with God for not letting me know the nitty gritty of everything. So when I came across this particular story which I will be sharing, it sounded good but also convicting because the people involved operated on a very high level of trust and faith.
