Boy, you better be holy!!!!

What is holiness? (defined by the Lord, not us.) For most people, it is an adherence to the Decalogue (ten commandments). For others, it is a list of regulations and rules set forth by historic cultural standards. Even more, it is an idea of sinless perfection. But what does Scripture say?

Sufficient and Certain, Not Possible and Available!

What did the cross accomplish for the believer? (Grasping the atonement) Expiation and Propitiation are accomplished at the cross. We don’t bargain with the work of Jesus as hopeful but as trustworthy! Certain! Amen.

We need the facts, We have to solve this case!

What evidence should accompany true faith? If we had to measure an evidence so we could be sure that we are saved what would it look like? Is it works? AM I supposed to measure myself in the mirror against Jesus? Maybe a neighbor? True saving faith is the primary evidence of regeneration/salvation. The rest is for the Lord to work out in His timing.(Understanding salvation as regeneration, not life change)

Things you need to know about your Faith!

No question in the life of a believer has been more worrisome than, “How do I know I’m truly saved?” Since the 1500’s this question has been answered by people who are unable to rightly reveal their answer with Scripture. We live in a day and age where educated men are fundamentally flawed with their assumptive and myopic stance on looking to something other than Christ Alone for security. This week series we will discuss this and related topics by answering the following questions:

  1. What’s wrong with my faith? How can I know that I know that I know I have eternal life?
  2. What evidence should accompany true faith? (Understanding salvation as regeneration, not life change)
  3. What did the cross accomplish for the believer? (Grasping the atonement)
  4. What is holiness? (defined by the Lord, not us.)
  5. What is the fruit of my faith? (Grasping “good works” as dynamic and insufficient)

Being holy and sanctified is not what you think.

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,
4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love
5 he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will,
6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,
8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight
9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ
10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth. – Ephesians 1:3-10

 

There are many false teachers that don’t know it!

In our world few individuals know how to speak accurately, read comprehensively or communicate effectively. We live in a time where it is easier to laugh, poke, scoff and make fun of someone and their ideas rather than be confronted by the fact that we just don’t know how to listen. Reading and applying the Scriptures is no different. From 140 characters to emoticons, the Bible has long been misapplied because it is literature and must be read as such. Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to Biblical truth because truth in ignorance is purveyed as error and error can be lethal.

Rest in your evangelism, in the sovereignty of God!

Nothing we do or don’t do (if we share the gospel) can deter another person from believing. God is sovereign in salvation and He will bring faith as He wishes. So, we need to share the gospel with boldness and confidence and leave the saving to God.

We appreciate your listening and look forward to seeing this podcast get off the ground with great force. By the Lord’s grace, we’ll continue to provide more and more teaching on this and other pastoral subjects.

We don’t need no stinking members!

People often think about church this way in that they don’t see the need to “JOIN” a local church. Well, the Scripture reveals some commands that don’t make sense otherwise.

The Bible, of course, is a book with history, not only in its pages but about its pages. For centuries the Scriptures have been passed down, translated, copied and established in many dialects and languages. No ‘version’ of the Holy Writ has held the heart of a culture as has the English translation from 1611 known as the King James Version. This copy of the Scriptures included not just the Old and New Testaments, but also the Apocrypha and other related non-canonical writings. The language of that era is breathtaking and even the small and quirky nuances are cherished by millions as the voice of “their bible” from childhood. Through the years the King James Bible has been changed, updated, corrected and supplied to any household who wanted one in English speaking lands. While there is nothing inherently wrong with this translation of Scripture, very few people have actually read an original and fewer even have a replica of this literary masterpiece. Strangely in contrast to this fact, many taut that the King James Version, or KJV, is God’s ordained “translation” from the original “tongues” and any other translation efforts are “unauthorized”.  This type of thinking is rooted in a wide pool of theories, suspicion, conspiracy, fear, and ignorance. 

The KJV is a fine contextual representation of the Scriptures but it is no different and no better than other good translation efforts put forth in contemporary times. Now there is a difference between a translation and a ‘version’ of Scripture. A translation concedes to the original meaning in context and word-for-word accuracy as able, so that the message of the original text and its variants can be brought forth. A paraphrase or thought for thought commentation is not translation work at all. These types of so-called “bibles” are best left alone. For the KJV, it along with many of its English counterparts are good copies of Scripture and can be safely utilized to know the truths of God and the Gospel of Grace. But when it comes to those who try to wage war with the KJV as a divinely ‘inspired’ or ‘authorized’ version of Scripture, they are committing idolatry and in a real sense, are exposing a very dark side of human depravity and the ploys of the enemy. 

Dr. Edward Dalcour and I produced an informal podcast on this topic a few months ago and have it published at the ChristianPodcastCommunity.com for anyone who’s interested you can listen above. We discuss the idea that while the KJV is a perfectly fine version of Scripture, the dark side of KJV “onlyism” is that many fail to understand the silly ignorance behind it and worse, they fail to see the horrible sinfulness of placing undue burdens on the church who fear things that Scripture itself commands not to fear. They have no authority to hold to their views on the very book that claims sovereign authority over the church.  We’d love your thoughts and engagement.
