Disguised Disobedience

Disobedience to God can be disguised as many things. It can be disguised as speaking the truth, sacrifice to God, the word of God and love. Are you disobeying God because of some truth you discovered? Are you disobeying God disguised as offering sacrifice to God? Are you disobeying God because of some prophet or apostle’s claim of speaking the word of God? Are you disobeying God under of disguise of love in word but not in deeds?

Grace differs to Everyone

God’s grace is entirely up to Him and there is no absolute guarantee to anyone that s/he will receive His grace. Ananias and Sapphira never had the opportunity to even regret or repent of their sins but died instantly for lying to Holy Spirit before the very man, Peter who denied the Son of God not just once but thrice. God’s grace on Peter isn’t same as to Ananias and Sapphira even though the sin of Peter is much greater than Ananias and Sapphira. Based on Scripture we can conclude that ,God gives grace to the humble, He is gracious to the one who lacks and the righteous will find grace in His sight.

False Doctrine on Total Depravity

Total depravity is a Protestant theological doctrine derived from the concept of original sin. It teaches that, as a consequence of the Fall, every person born into the world is enslaved to the service of sin as a result of their fallen nature and, apart from the efficacious (irresistible) or prevenient (enabling) grace of God, is completely unable to choose by themselves to follow God, refrain from evil, or accept salvation. In this post, we will explore why this doctrine of total depravity is false.

Evil-Eyed Christians

A recent visit to one of my very close relative left me with confusion on their behavior and turned to the Bible for answers. While they insist on spending during our stay at their home who also forbid any financial assistance from us for our own stay, they quickly get grumpy for minuscule things my children do that is worth nothing. To give a comparison, they are happy to spend $200 on some gifts for my children while grumpy for a little water spent on shower or lights left on. In this post, we will explore one of the important characteristics of what the Bible calls eye-evil and how we must avoid.
