Made Alive in Christ

We cannot at anytime lean on our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5), we must always look to the word of God because we can so easily be deceived by our emotions. How many people do you know who commit willful sin whom you would consider nice and likable people. One of the most prevalent of this willful sinning in our society is the sin of fornication. It is so common place in our society that almost no one gives it a second thought, that is why Hebrews 10:26-30 seems so poignant and harsh to someone who has not been transformed through the Spirit of God.

"For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of A fire which will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and…

God's Wrath Must Be Satisfied

I hear many of my brethren speak often about repentance. Repentance is missing from much of what is called the modern American evangelical Church. There has been a movement afoot; a remnant as you will who has come forward and began to proclaim the truth of the gospel that you must repent. Sometimes I think some have gone too far with this, going the other direction, falling into legalism, putting more enfaces on repentance than they do faith in Christ. A large portion of pastors in America never mention repentance and create many false converts who think that they can have their sin and heaven too. So we must preach sin, righteousness and judgment; preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ, telling all men everywhere to repent of their sins and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone. There are a few who make so much of repentance that they almost never speak of faith. You must repent, that is true, but repentance does not satisfy the wrath of God for sin. No one has ever been save…

Let Us Do Away with Cliché’s

I suggested last week during a bible study, that the cliché; “God hates the sin but loves the sinner” is unbiblical and stated that God not only hates sin but He hates the sinner as well. This caused some to be a little upset. A couple of days later with regards to this being on my mind, I said on my facebook account; “Many Christians have a hard time excepting the Biblical truth that God not only hates sin but abhors the one who does iniquity. (Psalm 5:5) This is not something to reject but a truth that makes the gospel all the more beautiful. That God would pour His righteous Holy wrath out on His Son, who never sinned, redeeming by His blood through faith the object of His Devine hatred, evil and wicked men. It is beyond words, it is Amazing Grace!” This too caused some others to become angry, you would think that I had spoken against some great and honored doctrine of the church.

First of all I retract from my original statement that “God hates the sin but loves the sinne…
