  • Christians Together : Maintaining our balance
    this world in motion and He will bring it to an end He sent Jesus the Messiah into the world to bring us salvation and eternal life You may not realize it but the things going on in the world today are prophesied in the Bible for the last days of this age For example 1 There will be a an increase in wars famines plagues and earthquakes Luke 21 10 11 2 The earth will be full of violence as in the days of Noah and many people will be afraid of what is going to happen Luke 17 26 27 Luke 21 25 26 Genesis 6 11 Lawlessness will abound Matthew 24 12 2 Thessalonians 2 1 12 2 Timothy 3 1 9 3 There will be sexual immorality as in the days of Lot Sodom and Gomorrah Genesis 19 Romans 1 24 27 4 There will be widespread pollution of the earth and destruction of the environment Isaiah 24 Revelation 8 6 11 5 There will be a restoration of the Jewish people to Israel There will be a conflict over Jerusalem which will involve all nations of the world Ezekiel 36 9 Zechariah 12 14 Luke 21 20 24 Revelation 16 16 6 There will be a globalisation process and a worldwide trading system A dictatorial anti Christian govern ment will arise out of this Revelation 13 and 18 7 There will be an increase in technology and travel Daniel 12 4 8 There will be false prophets who will lead people astray and cause confusion about God and salvation Matthew 24 5 24 23 27 Revelation 17 1 6 9 There will be an attack on the basic truths of the Bible and opposition to those who teach the Gospel Matthew 24 10 11 2 Timothy 4 2 5 2 Peter 2 John 2 18 23 10 The message of the Gospel will reach all nations despite opposition and persecution Matthew 24 9 14 28 18 20 These things happening today are a sign that Jesus is coming back soon and the world is heading for the Day of Judgment Only Jesus can save us from this judgment not any other religious leader past or present There is a heaven to gain and a hell to flee from We do not know exactly when this will happen But of that day and hour no one knows no not even the angels of heaven but my Father only But as the days of Noah were so also will the coming of the Son of Man be Matthew 24 36 If you want to be saved from God s judgment you must trust in what He has done for us not in your own good deeds or religious observance Jesus died as a sacrifice for our sins and rose again from the dead to give us eternal life So we need to repent of our sins and accept Jesus as Saviour and let him be Lord of

  • Christians Together : Confusion reigns  in and regarding the church
    the body of Christ But the body of Christ does not translate to mean religious structures Additionally the growing apostasy within denominations amply illustrates the failure of such structures to a ensure a biblical fidelity and b to exercise discipline when that is breached 4 How can Christians know what Jesus wants them to do and how he wants them to live I believe that the teaching of the Bible is the way that Christians can know how to follow Jesus faithfully Amen And this is a totally different concept to adherence to any religious establishment The words of Jesus as we find them in the New Testament point us to the Bible as the way to know what behaviour is pleasing to God When Jesus is tempted by Satan and in reply says It is written and then quotes the Bible Matthew 4 4 4 7 4 10 he clearly means What God has said in the Scriptures is the final word and there is no arguing with it We never find Jesus saying It is written that thou shalt not but I say unto you that it is OK On the contrary he condemns those who permit the written word of God in Scripture to be set aside And so we read in Mark 7 6 13 He replied Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites as it is written These people honour me with their lips but their hearts are far from me They worship me in vain their teachings are but rules taught by men You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men And he said to them You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions For Moses said Honour your father and your mother and Anyone who curses his father or mother must be put to death But you say that if a man says to his father or mother Whatever help you might otherwise have received from me is Corban that is a gift devoted to God then you no longer let him do anything for his father or mother Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down And you do many things like that For Jesus what is written down in Scripture is the word of God and it is not negotiable Scripture is the supreme judge by which all controversies of religion are to be determined For Jesus holding fast to God s word in Scripture is crucial setting it aside is unacceptable Doing what Jesus commanded us therefore does not just mean doing the things that he tells us to do in the four gospels It also means obeying the instructions of God that we find in the Old Testament Does this include putting wayward teenagers to death as the OT prescribes Furthermore it also involves obeying the teaching of the apostles as found in the New Testament Jesus told the apostles If they obeyed my teaching they will obey yours also John 15 20 5 Can a body legitimately call itself a Christian church if it does not hold to the teaching of the Bible Is it permissible for Christian churches to depart from the teaching of the Bible I believe that it is necessary for Christian churches to hold to the teaching of the Bible It is almost two thousand years since Jesus promised to build his church and then sent the apostles out into the world to make disciples of all nations Over the course of those years many bodies have claimed to be Christian churches And witness where this has got us to These bodies have differed from one another in their belief and practice The differences have been so great that questions have been raised about whether some of them actually were Christian churches The Westminster Confession says that some churches are more pure than others and then says The purest churches under heaven are subject both to mixture and error which should be addressed where it exists and some churches have so degenerated as to become no churches of Christ but synagogues of Satan In other words even the best churches are not perfect and some churches have moved so far from the teaching of Jesus as to cease to be Christian churches in any meaningful sense Since Jesus pointed to the Bible as the word of God which is to be believed and obeyed it seems to me that it is an essential characteristic of Christian churches that they acknowledge the Bible to be the word of God and that they hold that the Bible is to be believed and obeyed Furthermore since it is the duty of churches to try to ensure that their members are faithfully following Jesus they will not be able to carry out this most basic duty unless they hold that the Bible is to be believed and obeyed It therefore seems unlikely that a body that does not hold that the teaching of the Bible is to be believed and obeyed can function properly as a Christian church 6 Can a Christian church be accurately described as holding to the teaching of the Bible if it does not require that those in its top leadership positions hold to the teaching of the Bible The term top leadership again falls into the hierarchical and unbiblical pattern of institutionalised religion I believe that for a Christian church to hold to the teaching of the Bible it is necessary that it requires those in leadership positions in the church to hold to the teaching of the Bible In any organisation more will be expected of leaders than is expected of ordinary members Every follower is Christ is an ordinary member of the priesthood of all believers Clericalism is unbiblical The word reverend is found only once in the Bible and exclusively
