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)

These daily podcasts will most likely be a little longer than normal. Rest well and as always, we’re here to discuss with you the truth of the Gospel.

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 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.

Many should not be teachers!

Teachers are everywhere, but should they be? Scripture says in James 3:1 that many should not be teachers because those who teach are held to a stricter judgment. The main reason is that it is easy to sin with our mouths and how much worse is sin in teaching wrongly?

Mustard seeds and mustard stains!

One doesn’t wash out and the other is big enough for eternal life. Saving faith in Jesus Christ stands alone and has no other life-line. To truly believe in Jesus for salvation means that one doesn’t hold fast to anything else.

I don’t know how to read!

But we can get the bible into the ears of our family. We can trust in the Lord for His power through the hearing of His word. More than theological studies, the Bible needs to be read. Don’t let schedule and business push spiritual growth to the side.

The Bible is the ONLY way to know God!

This podcast will emphasize the vital truth that Scripture alone can reveal God. In our day many people claim to know the God of the Bible but they refuse to accept what Scripture teaches about Him and His works. This is absurd.

Looking for books and coloring pages isn’t necessary.

We don’t have to fear ‘how’ we are to teach our family the truths of God’s word. If we read and teach the Scripture, God will be the true instructor. His word is truth and God the Spirit will guide the words to the minds of our children.
