ON “little” SINS

August 21, 2010

The Christian is commanded not to sin.  As our Father changes our desires (Philippians 2:13) He opens our eyes to the sin in our life, and we begin to hate it and strive against it.  But, having a sinful nature, we still sin.  This process of hating and fighting sin through the strength God gives […]

Try Harder… it isn’t THAT heavy!!

Have you noticed the common theology coming from many pulpits these days?  Emergent Church types tell us that coming together to do good in the world is the Gospel.  Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyers and the all the other prosperity types teach us the Gospel is the fact that if we do this and […]

In the middle of the 6th chapter of John (a chapter in which Jesus performs several of His more famous miracles) is a rebuke.  It is a rebuke aimed at people who appeared to be followers of Christ, but were following Him for the wrong reasons.  Not horrible, evil, immoral reasons, just wrong reasons.  Any onlookers would […]

The Truth of Adoption

I was recently browsing “Musings from a Theo-Geek“, which is a blog I stumbled upon just this weekend, and found a terrific article addressing the true nature of our adoption.  When I say, “our adoption” I am referring to the adoption of the Christian into the family of God.  The legal act made possible by […]

Talkin’ about Fear!

Right now, we have a small construction project going on at the ChurchSalt world headquarters (my house).  Being construction ignorant, I have enlisted the help of a friend who has more talent and patience than myself.  My friend likes to have the radio on while working, so recently we spent a day listening to political talk […]

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.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.  For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them.  For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly […]

The Idol of Holiness

July 20, 2010

It is possible for someone to take a valid and Biblical approach to a spiritual exercise, and carry it so far that it distorts and stretches into something altogether unbiblical, even idolatrous.  At ChurchSalt, we highly encourage those professing Christ to heed Paul’s warning when he tells us to “examine ourselves as to whether we […]

Be Good but don’t be Backwards!

Every one should strive to continually improve, right?  Well, yes.  But we must be very careful when it comes to improving our actions and behaviors,  or our avoidance of sins.  Are we trying to improve ourselves and cease sinning because we are trying to be in right standing with God?  If this is the case, […]
