For some Christians, worship is singing and praising. But for others, it is praying to God. In the Scriptures, worship is not about praying, singing or praising but rather, it is being humble and obeying Him. True worship is not about a display using the flesh but in Spirit obeying the Truth. In this post, we will explore what worship means from Scripture.
A quick reference to guide you from not falling into the pit of misquoting words of Jesus Christ by modern preachers, churches and denominations to reject His teachings!
Have you heard the term ‘judge not’ from certain Christians who don’t want others to point out their sins? Are they really saying to not judge them or not to declare God’s righteous judgements on them if they don’t repent? The reason why many who commit iniquity say not to judge them is really about not willing to hear the righteous judgments of God for their sins and want to continue in their sins.
The words of Jesus had been misquoted throughout history to support doctrines and ideologies. In this post, we will explore how the words of Jesus had been misquoted to support even murder and evil. Many Christians are not murderers but want to misquote Jesus to justify their sinful deeds and remain in their sin. These people who do not turn away from their sinful ways will not enter life but death. Will you justify your sins by misquoting His words?
From Constantine in 312 AD to crusades in 11th century AD and even recently the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, all battles were done in the name of our God. Have you ever wondered why so many evil in this world is done using the name of Jesus in spite of Him never teaching such things to His disciples? It’s because you can prove anything with the Bible. This is why we must not be bible-believers but His disciples by obeying His teachings.
Today’s Christians are like the first century Jews who think that they have eternal life in the Bible, just like how they think that the Bible is the authoritative truth and the way. Jesus, who referred to Himself as life also refer His words as life. Satan is very clever who wants Christians to believe who Jesus really is, but reject all His teachings about attaining everlasting life by replacing it with the Bible. Jesus being life becomes a matter of opinion and interpretation of what it means among the other things mentioned as “life” in the Bible.
In the earlier post, we saw that many Christians reject the teachings of Jesus by replacing Him with the Bible from being the authoritative Truth. In this post, we will explore how Christians reject the teachings of Jesus by replacing them from being the way to the Father with someone’s words with His name.
More than 300 people were killed in the recent bomb blasts which targeted mostly Christians. There is no doubt God will bring justice quickly to those who do injustice against His people and even Jesus grieved for the death of His friend Lazarus just like us. However, when Jesus was mentioned about the killing of the Galileans and mixing their blood with the sacrifices, He responded in a completely unexpected way. In this post, we will explore the response of Jesus and how we can be spared from such attacks.
The way Christians reject the teachings of Jesus is by replacing Him from being the Truth. If Jesus is the Truth, then everything that does not agree with Jesus Christ is a lie. Do you believe Jesus is the truth? Anyone can use the Bible to prove anything from polygamy to abstinence, crusades to burning on stake and many others. This is where Satan wants to throw away the Truth and replace it with the Bible. Do you truly believe the Truth who is Jesus Christ?
This post is a reply to Brian Houston, the Founder and senior pastor of Hillsong Church for his article in The Sydney Morning Herald titled, “A message to Folau: The world doesn’t need more judgmental Christians”. John the Baptist was beheaded for rebuking Herod’s adultery and Jesus was crucified for rebuking sinners and Pharisees who don’t repent. Brian Houston must be ashamed to even quote Jesus Christ and John the Baptist.
Just like the disciples on the road to Emmaus, we take a prophecy, decide on the desired outcome from the prophecy based on current situations and world events, then we try to fit the prophecy on the events based on we already decided as the outcome. Prophecy doesn’t work that way. No one can interpret prophecies unless God reveals it to us.
