Your Deadly Dinner will be out Shortly…

July 29, 2010

What is happening in the above passage? The people of Israel were complaining…again. Not satisfied with having an all powerful God visibly leading them out of slavery and to a promised country of their own (while providing them food and water on the way) they began to complain about what type of food they were being provided. They wanted meat, and they wanted it now….. This kind of self-centered world view is a rejection of the Lord, it is a rebellion against His wisdom and His calling. The passage above states that the Lord agreed to provide their desires, and to send them meat…. The Lord will send judgment on those who refuse to repent, and instead focus on their fleshly desires and wants. And what a frightful judgment it is! To be handed over, given to the desires of your flesh! Whoever serves sin is a slave to sin, and sin is a cruel master.

Follow me

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. Matthew 16:24

Wouldn’t you say that this is a profound and powerful call from our Lord to join Him as He rights the world’s wrongs? Is this not His call to join the cause of social justice, to feed starving children and protect the envirnment? Is it not obvious this call is telling us to make a change in our world and leave a mark before we go? No…..no, no, no. Jesus calls us to Himself. We are to follow Him and deny ourselves.

I found this absolutely terrific article posted over at “Possessing the Treasure”.  It is short, and worthy to be read by all those going by the name “Christian”.  Take a look… Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is […]

Beth Moore’s Blurry Hindsight

July 4, 2010

5 Comments

One of the more well-read posts here at ChurchSalt was a recent post regarding Beth Moore (click HERE to read).  From that article and others I have found that it is an extremely unpopular thing to question the teachings of nice people.  Rick Warren is a nice guy, why would I scrutinize his teachings so much?  Joel Osteen […]

Bold & Truthful Poetry

June 22, 2010

0 Comments

I am not usually a fan of poetry.  Not that I condemn it, it’s just that personally it doesn’t usually appeal to me.  This particular poem, however, I like.  Bold and unashamed, the poet lays bare the fact that her Christianity was no Christianity at all.  She confesses to the darkness that surrounded her soul […]

NEW!  Another sermon has been added to our page of free audio resources.  It’s called “Pharisee Me” and it is a look at our own faith and claims of Christianity in light of Luke 18:9-14 Most people familiar with the Bible know the story of the Pharisee and the tax collector.  Was the Pharisee really all that bad?  […]

The Despised Word… “Doulos”

June 11, 2010

0 Comments

I recently received a letter from Voice of the Martyrs that reminded me of a very important lesson I learned a while back.  Are you aware that in the original Greek text, the word “duolos” appears in the New Testament over 100 times?  If you are not familiar with this word, I am sure you […]

What kind of Radio?!??

June 5, 2010

2 Comments

For the first time in quite some while, I turned on the radio today and tuned in to one of the local Christian radio stations.  It has been a long time since I did this, and it seems I had forgotten what to expect.  It wasn’t long before I remembered why I don’t tune in […]
