So Simple A Saved Man Could Do It

But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:3

Being devoted to the Lord as His bride is not a difficult thing. Just the opposite it is a simple thing. Paul’s fear stemmed from the deceit of Eve by the devil in the garden. We need to go to the book of Genesis to understand just how the devil deceived Eve.

Now the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, "Indeed, has God said, 'You shall not eat from any tree of the garden '?" The woman said to the serpent, " From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat; but from the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat from it or touch it, or you will die. '" The serpent said to the woman, "You surely will not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil." When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. Genesis 3:1-6

Expose Convince Reprove

"But now I am going to Him who sent Me; and none of you asks Me, ' Where are You going? ' But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.  John 16:5-7

Jesus was speaking to the disciples about His crucifixion. The disciples were confused and didn’t understand and became filled with sorrow. But Jesus told the disciples in was to their advantage if he went away and assured them with a promised to send someone to give them comfort.

Who is the comforter and what advantage did Jesus mean?

Love is Love and Sexual Immorality is Sexual Immorality

The other day I saw a poster that had three preachers, I assume they were preachers, holding bibles in their hands beating a man lying on the ground in a pool of blood shrouded in a rainbow, implying the man was gay. The caption at the top read if you are using the bible to hurt other people, you are using it wrong. Then at the bottom of the poster read scripture from Romans 13:10 “Love does no harm to its neighbor, therefor love is the fulfillment of the law”.

In one respect this poster is correct.

I can just feel the flesh rising up in most of you right now. On one side some of you are swelling up with pride, saying see we are right, and on the other side, some of you are thinking OMG not another liberal gay rights activist trying to shove gay rights down our throats.

I am not on either side of the gay rights debate. But, with all this debate about homosexuality, Christians and the Bible in the minds of the world and Christians alike, we need to seek the truth.

Think Differently Afterward – Change Your Mind

Who was speaking and who was he speaking to?

But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? “Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance; and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham for our father’; for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham. “The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.  “His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He will thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He will gather His wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” Matthew 3:7-12
