In my personal belief and opinion Hubag, yes. It does. Because Genetics and Molecular Biology shows to us the ordered structure of the microscopic level as well as the organismal and the planetary level. Everything is ordered.

Who ordered it?

I leave that to the believer.

;)



In the end, its all a matter of faith. A leap of Faith.


Personal belief and opinion (or faith, whatever) then, not reason.

I rest my case.

In light of my last statement, history and scientific breakthroughs, which have built upon each other in such a way that it resembles a stratified layer of geologic rocks. Some laws are discarded, as they are proven wrong in later epochs. Which, in the basis of it, indicates to us that there really is no constancy in man made law, or in any human understanding of natural law. Because as history has indicated to us, even widely accepted scientific laws can be proven wrong. In the process of time.

But for me, and for many believers in the Word of God, His Word is flawless and is unchangeable.

Isaiah Chapter 40, Verse 8, (Old Testament)
"The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever."

and later reiterated and augmented in 1st Peter Chapter 1 verses 24-25, (New Testament)
"For All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever."And this is the word that was preached to you."


God Is So Good.

Correction, Faith is augmented by Reason.

Our God tells us to Reason with one another.
Just one example:

"Come now, let us reason together,"
       says the LORD.
       "Though your sins are like scarlet,
       they shall be as white as snow;
       though they are red as crimson,
       they shall be like wool.

(Isaiah 1:18)

That is where you and I differ. Hebrews 13 verse 20-21 tells us that that we will be strengthened when defending the faith in Christ Jesus.
" Now may the God of peace who brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great shepherd of the sheep, by the blood of the eternal covenant,  equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us  that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen."



The Wisdom given to us that is found in the Holy Bible and is augmented in the believer's ability to trust in the Wisdom of the Holy Spirit as we read the Holy Bible is truly transformational. Wisdom that comes from The Holy Spirit will allow an understanding of of why things are, and correlate everything with knowledge of the present age. Afterall, the Holy Spirit gives us Wisdom, the product of which is knowledge.

Proverbs 9:10, "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy (sacred) is understanding."


In Christ,
Lorenzo.

Blue, yes, Science and Faith.

As a man of science, and a Roman Catholic Christian, I am affirmed that Science explains God. It is a confirmation, so to say, that the Christian Faith is legitimized.

My proctor for Medical Pathology is a firm believing Christian. It shows you that science and Christian Faith can find common ground. The fact that one believes in the God does not mean that he is antagonistic to science and its processes.

On the contrary, science illustrates the magnanimity of Our God.

~~

In 1991, the medical community initiated the breakthrough Human Genome Project where we in the medical community discovered and mapped the over 3 Billion base pair human DNA sequence. This project has now been completed. Although human beings appear to be quite different from each other, the sequence of our DNA is, in reality, highly conserved. On average, 2 unrelated individuals share over 99.99% of their DNA sequences. This effectively supports the notion of a primordial Adam and Eve.

Did Mankind come and sprout from an original seed? Yes. Genetically speaking, we did. Is mankind, in essence, related to each other genetically speaking? Yes.

No one can deny this. It is an established fact in the medical / scientific community. Phenotypic variance does not mitigate genotypic conservation.

Theories and laws can be changed, as much as Aristotle's old Scientific Law that there are 3 elements: fire, air, earth.

where does water figure out?  these 4 elements--- fire, air, earth and water, date back to pre-socratic times. in fact, aristotle added a fifth, ether.

happy ether, er, easter!

A brother asked, " What is the importance of Easter? "


Dear brother, Easter represents the rise of Christ Jesus from the dead. And His glorious resurrection.

Please read the following (and you are also encouraged to read further):

Mark 16:1-8
When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so that they might go to anoint Jesus' body. Very early on the first day of the week, just after sunrise, they were on their way to the tomb and they asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?"

But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

"Don't be alarmed," he said. "You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter, 'He is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.' "

Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid.


~~


Matthew 27:50-53
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.


~

I also recommend you read: Philippians Chapter 3, Luke Chapter 24, John Chapter 20.

Happy Easter!

You are right, islander, Aristotle's original elements were: air, fire, earth, water and ether. And that goes back to my point, Theories and Man's Law are always changing.

What we once thought were 5 elements are now ever-changing. As of 2006, there are 117 elements; many of which are man-made elements such as Ununquadium, Meitnerium etc. And this number continues to grow/ and change.



~~

This really does bring true meaning to 1 Peter 1: 24-25,

   For all men are like grass,
   and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
   the grass withers and the flowers fall,
   but the word of the Lord stands forever."

My question to fellow Bible Readers:





Jesus was condemned by the Sanhedrin and the Pharisees that charged The Lord with blasphemy, why did the Sanhedrin charge Him of this? What laws and what specifically did Jesus Christ of Nazareth do to be so targeted by the Sanhedrin with charges of Blasphemy?




The second question that I ask is:


How did Jesus Christ of Nazareth respond to the charges of the Sanhedrin, and what was the response of the Sanhedrin?

Joseph in the Gospel of Matthew – Matthew 1:18-25 | Bible Study


Observations:

    1. Fulfillment of the prophecy (Isaiah 9:6-7, Isaiah 7:14)
    2. It seems like Joseph is the chief character (primary focus) in this passage, Mary played a passive role in this passage. Luke on the other hand, goes into details about Mary and her own journey through this. (Luke 1: 26-56)
    3. The birth of Jesus, the Messiah was anything, but an ordinary event. It wasn’t quiet, peaceful time as sometimes, nativity scenes today depict. Even before, the birth of Jesus, Joseph & Mary, his parents went through a lot.


Q. What can you learn about Joseph?


    a. Joseph was righteous man.
    b. He was considerate and compassionate to Marry, his fiancee. When he heard about Mary, he decided to divorce her privately, in spite of disappointment and heart break.
    c. He was obedient to the voice of God.
    d. He must have very clear, powerful revelation from God.

Jesus Heals the Leper – Mark 1:40-45



Q. Visualize condition of the Leper.

    - Rejected by family, friends, community
    - Outcast from the community and city
    - No one would have touched him for days. If anyone touches him, he will also become unclean.
    - Leprosy is not something, you can romanticize. It is one of the most hated and rejected diseases. (Check out Jesus healing the Disabled Man at Bethesda)
    - He would need physical, social, spiritual healing.
    - His self-esteem would have been lost.
    - According to Moses’ Law, the leper has to pass through at least 14 days of ‘cleansing’ process before he can enter the city and see Jesus.


Q. What does his request say about his state of mind?

    - The leper was desperate and downcast. In Jesus, he saw his last rescue!
    - His lack of confidence in himself – “If you are willing, you can make me clean!”
    - This man would have tried everything, he could, to cure himself. But nothing could cure his decaying body.  In Jesus, he saw hope, a healer, savior who can help him out of this condition. And so he came to him kneeling and beseeching.
    - It is out of such state of mind of helplessness and self-pity, he cried out. “If you are willing, you can heal me.”
    - I believe that in the Kingdom of God, this is your qualification, when you realize that you are nothing in yourself, but a helpless person, who desperately needs a healer and Savior.


What was Jesus’ response to the leper?

    - He was moved by pity, filled with compassion.
    - He stretched out his hands and touched him! People around him would have been shocked to see that!
    - “How can he touch him? He would also be ‘unclean’.” Some might have whispered!
    - There is a reverse phenomenon here, Jesus’ touch can cleanse the ‘unclean’.
    - I believe that even Jesus’ touch would have healed his soul. For what seems like a simple gesture by Jesus, was a great expression of comfort and acknowledgment, as if Jesus is saying, “I love you and care for you despite of your wounds and disrupted body and soul.”
    - Jesus healed his body and soul.
    - I am not going to focus today on this man’s failure to follow Jesus’ warning. I guess his joy was too great to be contained to himself. His actions hindered Jesus’ public ministry.

I found this quite enlightening to read; and so I will share it with you all fellow readers and listeners. God Bless!


WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOUT...BRIDGING THE GENERATION GAP?

POWER IN GENERATIONAL UNITY

Although there are many aspects to the way that the glory and judgments of the Lord will be manifested on the earth in the last days, We want to address one particular issue in this article: God’s plan for restoring the generations. We understand that The Call DC is one assembly that at first was directed only to the youth of the nation to gather in Washington D.C. for a solemn day of prayer and fasting. Later, it was made a multi-generational assembly, calling for children and parents to assemble together at the nation’s capital. We are convinced that calling all the generations together was pleasing to the Spirit. God prefers to work within the scheme of many generations interacting with each other, rather than an isolated generation. One of His most revealing titles for Himself is "the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." He is the God of many generations.

Throughout His word, the righteous declare that their purpose is to declare the glory of God to the next generation.

"Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come" (Psalm 71:18 NIV).

"One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts" (Psalm 145:4 KJV).

From these, and many other scriptures, we can see clearly that each generation is called to build on the foundation left by the previous generation. Therefore, all generations are in great need of each other to complete the work that God has called His corporate Body to fulfill.

SATAN'S PLAN OF DESTRUCTION

Because of this, we can expect that there will be great generational warfare at the end of the age. Within the tribulation and chaos of this time, Satan has a plan to cause tremendous disunity and mistrust between the generations. This is already happening in the world in a greater measure than we have ever seen. Nevertheless, Satan will ultimately fail, because the Lord has already ordained that a key movement in the end times will be one of restoration among the generations!

"Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse" (Malachi 4:5-6 KJV).

Part of the reason this work of restoration will be so glorious, is because of the severe darkness of the times. Even as we see as fulfillment of Malachi 4:5-6, we will also the see the fulfillment of 2 Timothy 3:1-4:

"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God" (NIV).

Even as Satan is attempting to create outright warfare among the generations, the Lord is restoring unity to them, and He is beginning this work inside the church. Within our families, ministries, churches, jobs, schools, etc.; God is knitting together multi-generational teams that will fulfill various purposes for His kingdom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RESTORATION BEGINS ON A PERSONAL LEVEL

Beyond generational differences, the church also faces racial, cultural, and denominational barriers. These are never easy to cross; not if one plans to interact and live with such differences for more than a few months. Perhaps the greatest barrier within the church, is the barrier of differing views on how one should please the Lord. One would think that this would be the uniting factor within the church! For the mature in the Lord, we believe that it is. However, with prideful and immature Christians (and none of us are perfect yet), different opinions about how one should please the Lord become major issues and stumbling blocks.

Perhaps this barrier is most evident within differing generational mindsets (after all, even denominations are composed by rules and precepts drawn by previous generations). We argue over how involved Christians should be within everything from politics to punk bands. What are the limits one should keep, as they reach out to a lost and dying world? What is mere legalism masquerading as holiness? And what about true holiness that is misconstrued as legalism? How tolerant is the Lord of our cultural blind spots? What are His greatest hates? What are His greatest loves?  We know that the answers, in part, can only be found within a mix of varying generations who are willing to listen to each other. The very thing that rubs us the wrong way, is destined to separate the wheat from the chaff in our own hearts.

"I am the way. I am the truth. I am the life" (John 14:6).

As long as our goal is to know and love Jesus above all, we will grow in the simplicity of the Gospel. As the world becomes increasingly complicated, we must never forget that simplicity. He is the answer to every question. In fact, He faced these very same issues every day, and we must follow in His steps. What was His greatest example? We do not think it was that He spent time with sinners, or upset the Pharisees. It is too easy to follow that "example" only as an outlet for our rebellion, imagining that everyone who corrects us is a modern-day Pharisee.  No, the greatest example that Jesus left us, was that He was wholly dependant upon the Father to guide Him in every situation. He spoke only what He was told to speak. He did only what He was told to do. He lived in perfect obedience, not to outward rules but to the inward guidance of the Holy Spirit that rested continually upon Him and the word of God that dwelled richly within Him. In Jesus, the letter of the law and spirit of the law kissed each other. The beauty of that union has dazzled our spirits ever since.

RESTORATION INVOLVES DEATH TO OLD LOYALTIES

We believe that this restoration of the generations is part of God’s end time plan that will play a major role in silencing the Foe. We cannot arrive at this state of unity without some blood (dying to ourselves and applying the blood of Christ to our minds), sweat (it will take true effort on our part), and tears (repentance, prayer and seeking God’s face). If you are in a situation of generational conflict, take heart. If you respond correctly, you will find that God is working His character within you. He will give you power to bring reconciliation that is like nothing like the world has ever seen. This wisdom will bring healing to the nations and exalt the name of the Lord across the entire earth.

Within the confines of the church today, God is raising up many peacemakers. We all have the opportunity to be a part of this group, but the only way to do so is to die to our old loyalties. We are talking about our cultural loyalties. Are we willing to lose who we are, so that Christ may be formed in us? Most of us want just enough of Christ within us to get by, while we hold on to as much of our old identity as possible. We must die to our way, so that His life might flow through us unhindered and untainted.

Despite our personal convictions, we must also ask ourselves this question:  Am I willing to give others the grace to arrive at this place without immediately judging them for an appearance or lifestyle that is unacceptable to me? We did not gain our desire for death to our old ways merely because someone showed us a bunch of rules that we failed to keep. If that did not work for us, how can we expect it to work for others? We should rather prefer to die than to lead others to mere religion. We should want to awaken within them a passionate love for the Lord, that they will guard as their greatest treasure.

What is true holiness? We arrive at this place one step at a time. It begins when Jesus lets us catch just enough of a glimpse of His beauty, that we become dissatisfied until we know Him face-to-face and heart-to-heart! We need to come to the place that we can see that He is all we have ever wanted or needed. He truly is our source of joy. Because of that, we hate anything that comes between us. We must watch over our conscience, being careful to let none of our actions disturb it, because when our conscience is troubled, we will find a separation between ourselves and  God. This eventually becomes so painful that it drives us to do anything to be close with Him again.  Until we see that the pleasures of knowing Him are greater than anything else, we will inevitably fall back into the same old sins. Only when we are consumed in unbroken communion and passionate love for Him, will we be truly holy. And there is no way to this place, but through the death of our old self. It is impossible to know Jesus except through the cross. When we are dead to our old loyalties, all that matters to us is loving Christ, and leading others into that love.

ADMONITIONS FOR US ALL

If you are of the younger generation, it is crucial to remember these admonitions in Scripture:

"Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth" (Ephesians 6:1-3 KJV).

"Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will show thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee" (Deuteronomy 32:7 KJV).

"Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation" (Hebrews 13:7).

There is wisdom in the older generation that can only be received by those whose hunger for truth has forged humility within their hearts. If all you want to do is defend your views, you are robbing yourself of great wisdom and understanding. Much of what the older generation says is for our protection and good. Let us also point out that holding to the standards of ages past does not necessarily equate with a "religious spirit." Almost always, there are very good reasons for their standards, and those who are seeking wisdom will listen with an open mind. There is nothing more foolish than a youth who thinks they have seen it all, trying to correct an elder! Like Elihu in the book of Job it is better to keep your mouth shut until it is appropriate to speak.

Those who are older must also consider that expecting instant maturity from a young Christian is contrary to the illustration that we gain from watching a human body mature in the natural.  Even so, we should diligently work to see that Christ is being formed within those the Lord has entrusted to us. Like good doctors, however, we must be certain that we are offering the right cure to those who are ailing. Similar symptoms do not always point to the same disease, and the wrong medicine can kill, rather than heal a person. We must remember that some traditions are neither good nor bad–and enforcing them in a legalistic way can be a stumbling block to children, who need the right balance between freedom and law.

"But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?" (Matthew 15:3KJV).

"And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord" (Ephesians 3:4 KJV).

ONE HOLY GENERATION

In conclusion, let us be reminded that there is actually one holy generation that God is extracting from all the ages of human history. It is clear from Scripture that the entire overcoming Body of Christ is actually the same generation, no matter what age they live in! Consider the following verse, written two thousand years ago (emphasis mine).

"But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light" (1 Peter 2:9 KJV).

Psalm 24 also speaks of this same generation (emphasis mine):

"Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false. He will receive blessing from the Lord and vindication from God his Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, O God of Jacob. Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord, strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord Almighty–He is the King of glory" (NIV).

From these verses we can see that there is a spiritual generation that has nothing to do with our date of birth. It is the generation of God’s overcomers, who have been on the earth throughout human history. This generation transcends 20, 50, 500 or 3,000 years difference in natural age.

We also see from Psalm 24, that it is this spiritual generation that ushers in the "King of glory." He is being ushered in through a holy generation that has existed throughout all the ages of man. The year of our birth does not qualify or disqualify us from being a part of this generation. Rather it is the attitude of the heart. The famous verse from Joel that was quoted by Peter in Acts is specifically for both old and young people:

Acts 2:17-18 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy (KJV).

The Apostle Peter, who applied the above verse to his generation, is part of the same generation that you and I belong to. We are the generation that seeks His face.

Therefore, let us make up our minds to not view each other after the flesh, but after the life and calling of the Spirit within us. Let us deliberately mingle with other generations, yielding to the Holy Spirit as He works out the rough edges within us through this interaction. We need each other, not only to complete the Great Commission, but to complete that holy work of the Spirit that will make us humble and pliable, keeping to the straight and narrow and yet flowing with the new moves of the Spirit.

THE CALL

As the rest of the world experiences greater alienation with each other, and becomes more unrestrained, we must reach out in compassion, demonstrating the power of the Holy Spirit. O, that this work of restoration would begin within the church! The world is literally dying to see this love manifested anywhere! Once they see it, they will run to Him who is the restorer of us all.

We must live out this call right where you are. It is a truly a call for this hour, and will be manifested in the day-to-day lives of a people who want to see a sweeping move of the glory of God more than anything in the world.

Isaiah 58:12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

Yesterday night as I was coming home from work at the hospital (i arrived home quite late at around 12 am), as I was walking home I saw a local pentecostal church open with an evening prayer session. I looked at my watch and saw that it was about 12:11 am , and was amazed that this little pentecostal church was open that late at night. I was compelled by the Holy Spirit to visit the place, and so I knocked on door of the little church (which is actually located on the 1st floor of a business plaza building). The door was opened unto me by an young African-American male, probably at the age of 20 or 21. A young fellow. To my absolute realization, the whole church congregation, no more than 12 of them inside that night's prayer session. All of them were African-American as well as African immigrants. There were little children in the church as well, and the vibrant feeling of the whole congregation really touched me, again, it was the Holy Spirit that called me to the place that night since I was feeling quite down this week. With the stresses of work, studies, and then the combined effects of also being away from my family. I have not been to Catholic Mass in a while.

I stayed there. Till 1:30. The preacher welcomed me and really really made me smile. During his preaching, he stopped and looked at me and said, "Thanks for coming home to us, brother, thank you for coming." He then came to me and embraced me. Afterwards, a woman gave me a bible and addressed the passage that the preacher was reading in his sermon. I was very touched.

The verse that the pastor reiterated was from II Chronicles. It was addressing the importance of letting God fight our battles for us. The importance in believing that doors will be opened for us. Doors in the north, the south, the east, the west, the doors in this country, the doors in our lives that have been shut. That we have to believe that God will open it for us..that we should ask it in the Name of Jesus Christ. And it will be opened. That God will increase us, despite what we have and are positioned in right now.

May we always approach the Lord Jesus Christ will the hope of His intervention in our lives. That He will fight our battles for us. That He will rescue us.

Amen.

This is what the LORD says: "Cursed is the one who trusts in man, who depends on flesh for his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD.

-Jeremiah 17:5

This holds truth. Man is weak, I am weak, you are weak, we all are weak by ourselves. Our lives are as small as the sands. The Power of God was the one that opened the red sea for the hebrews, raised the dead by the power of Jesus Christ. Defeated the armies of the israelites against the Assyrians, the Philistines, Canaanites and more.

Despite our positions in this earthly life, despite our 'limited' strengths, we should not rely on our strengths alone, but in the Power of God , who can literally move mountains in our lives.

Prayer:

Lord, i am foolish for thinking that i could have done everything by myself. Foolish to think that my strengths were alone enough to surmount in this life. Because i know that when difficulties arise, when temptations come, my human strength and will will falter. Empower me now, to be able to defeat the enemies in my life, the seeds of discord in my life. I trust in You. You to rescue me. You to empower me. You  to forgive me. You and You alone.

Amen.

Lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper and be satisfied. 

        -Proverbs 13:4




In this verse we see that both people who are lazy and those who exert themselves have wants and needs, but only “those who work hard” will be satisfied.  Not only that, those who work had will, in fact, prosper.  Look, I know it’s not nearly as easy as being lazy, but if you want to prosper, if you want to be satisfied, it looks like you’re going to have to work hard for it.

Combine the last two verses together and you see that we should forget about being lazy and/or trying get-rich-schemes to reach our goals.  Instead, we should take a disciplined approach to our work to earn some money and work hard to be wise with that money and save and invest some of it.  Over time that will grow into some wealth that we can use to support our family and help others.

And don’t forget the significance of the final phrase in this verse – “be satisfied.”  Isn’t that what we’re all really looking for – to reach a level of satisfaction with our lives?  Some extremely wealthy people are miserable in their lives while others who seem dirt poor might be completely satisfied with theirs.  There’s more to life that how big your net worth is.

Backbiting

by: Wayne Blank




The term "backbiting" refers to a form of slander that is made against someone, not to their face, but "behind their back." It's most often used for one of two reasons; the accuser lacks the moral courage (there will be no cowards in the Kingdom of God i.e. "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone," Revelation 21:8) to make their accusation directly to the one that they have found fault, or because their accusation is a lie that would be readily proved so by the accused person.

True Christians are not "backbiters" because true Christians are not liars ("Thou shalt not bear false witness"), and if they ever rightfully have a problem with a fellow Christian, Jesus Christ instructed how it was to be dealt with in an open and honest way:

    "Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother. But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as a heathen man and a publican." (Matthew 18:15-17)



The apostle Paul encountered and warned against the same thing as David did. Paul used the Greek word, pronounced kat-al-al-os, which means a defamer, which is here translated as "backbitings":

    "For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults" (2 Corinthians 12:20 )

Paul warned against "backbitings" in the true Church of God because it causes division and falling away if not repented of. The same Greek word, kat-al-al-os, that is used to describe the backbiting in the verse quote above is also used to refer to one of the bitter fruits of apostasy i.e. "as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind":

    "And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them" (Romans 1:28-32)

On backbiting. I have been in an unfortunate situation in the past where one friend was talking about another friend, where one person was spreading false witness against a man whom I regard as a friend. The friend that was receiving the ill treatment did not deserve such treatment.

We all know how much it can be displeasing to the spirit to know that one is being talked about in a negative way. Much more if those who talk ill about us or those whom you love are doing it behind your back. The put a facade of astute kindness, but behind their smiles, is the gnashing of teeth.

I have comforted friends who were the victims of such backbiting. And it truly hurt my heart to hear that all manner of false assumptions and lies were being hurled at them. I myself also have been the victim of backbiting; cruel jokes that were uttered for their own pleasure but at my own expense and the expense of my character. How did I address this matter? Through prayer.

In cases were people say ill things about you--it is better that we not stoop down to their level, rather, if you can--learn to forgive them and to look on. But do address it, civilly as possible.

In the end, it takes true character and spirit to look away at such incessant irritations. When we are irritated and hurt, we should close our eyes and remember that Christ Jesus our Lord was crucified on the cross and suffered the ultimate shame and hurt.


God Bless!

Those Who Have Ears Ought To Hear


Have you ever taken part in a bible study group and come across a particular book, chapter, or verse that was unfavorable to your palate? That you disagreed with? I know I have from time to time. It is a result of our generation's own prejudices towards the Word of God.


Take for example the following verse:

"Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar. "
        – Proverbs 30:5-6


Comment:

Have you ever read a Scripture that made you very uncomfortable? This shouldn’t be surprising. Because the Bible is flawless and eternal, it will challenge each generation’s prejudices and blind spots. For all of our attempts to tame or adjust it, the Scripture is above every culture. So seek refuge in His word. Our discomfort doesn’t mean that the Scripture is not true, but the assumptions that are unique to our generation are being exposed in a light that is not of this earth.

Why We Should Hear The Word Of God


The foundation for obedience begins with listening—with hearing the Word. Hearing is a protection against scarring or hardening
   -Hebrews 3: 7


Hearing is a protection against scarring and / or hardening. Scarring of the faith, hardening of the heart. It is apparent of the many antagonistic factors in the world that affect our Trust and Absolute Faith in God and in God's Word. By opening our heart and our mind to His Word, we are reminded of God's Love and of God's Plans for us in this life and in the life to come.

Today I would like to focus on studying one aspect of Christian Virtue, and one that Our Lord Jesus Christ implemented actively--that is the act of Forgiveness. I stumbled on a verse in Mark Chapter 2 that made me think.


"Why does this man use such words?" they said; "He is blaspheming. Who can pardon sins but One--that is, God?"... Jesus asked them, "Which is easier?--to say to this paralytic, 'Your sins are pardoned,' or to say, 'Rise, take up your mat, and walk?' But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to pardon sins"--He turned to the paralytic, and said, "To you I say, 'Rise, take up your mat and go home."

   -Mark 2: 7-11


Sometimes, friends, the best thing to do is just to forgive and let go any past conflicts. Repay evil with good and repay offenses with good.

We are reminded this in Romans Chapter 12: 17-21 that says,

" Don't pay back a bad turn by a bad turn, to anyone. See that your public behavior is above criticism. As far as your responsibility goes, live at peace with everyone. Never take vengeance into your own hands, my dear friends: stand back and let God punish if he will. For it is written: "It is mine to avenge, I will repay," says the Lord. And it is also written: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." Don't allow yourself to be overpowered by evil. Take the offensive--overpower evil with good!"

That is indeed a definitive and powerful statement, "Don't allow yourself to be overpowered by evil; take the offensive-- overpower evil with good!"

In today's world this is quite interesting to hear considering the numerous instances of how people avenge murder with murder. For me, when i read this verse from Matthew, I am reminded of the transcendental message we receive from God through the Gospel. That is: focusing on --as much as possible-- on the teachings of Christ. Forgiveness is an integral part of the Gospel.

Now, admittingly, the world is antagonistic to Christ's teachings. There are instances in this world and in our lives that makes forgiveness almost next to impossible. However, I have come to realize that it is the power of the devil that instigates us to anger, hate, and malcontent. It is not of the Spirit of God for us to continue to hate and to maintain hostility. And in reflection, we know that Christ expects the best that we can give to Him. Forgiving those who -- we might view as antagonistic and hurtful to us. For it is written, "It is in forgiving that you are forgiven...." (Ephesians 4).

So , we must forgive. Forgive each other so that when we approach the altar of God in prayer, are forgiven also of our sins.

Blessings and Peace,
Lorenzo

Jesus tells us and promises us this:


The LORD Jesus Christ said,

And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

Brothers and Sisters,


Do you ever feel like life is too stressful at times? When everything is spiraling down, you feel like you're doing everything you can , however, you are getting nothing out of your hard work? I'm sure we all experience this feeling, surely, I do too.

We all hear of stories when people succumb to the stresses of life by taking their life. My beloved brothers and sisters, if we remember the pilgrim lives of Apostle Paul, Peter, Timothy, Luke, we see and hear that living and preaching the word is never an easy thing. Even the original church fathers were themselves tempted and faltered from time to time. Peter, the leader of the apostles, denied Christ 3 times before the rooster's call. Why even Apostle Paul went through challenges during his stay in Greece and in Rome. Despite these factors, the church fathers eventually kept the Word of God in Jesus Christ till the end. In fact, most of the Apostles endured a painful death while preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

They were truly convinced in this Truth. Convinced in the Divine Promise of the Resurrection of the Righteous on the Last Day.

Last night, as I was walking back from work, I walked past St. Boniface Catholic Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois. I happened to read the message on the Gate. The message , which said, "Here rest the faithful awaiting the blessed hope and glorious coming of our Great God and Savior Jesus Christ," really touched me. Thousands of men and women are buried in St. Boniface Cemetery, which is a German-American cemetery. It is quite empowering and inspiring to know that these people trusted in the Christian message of Resurrection of the Righteous on the Last Day.

I was strengthened. Truly, there is a Resurrection of the Holy Dead, who wait until The Lord Jesus Christ will come again....

We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people— 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in heaven and about which you have already heard in the true message of the gospel 6 that has come to you. In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. 7 You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant,[c] who is a faithful minister of Christ on our[d] behalf, 8 and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.

 9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives,[e] 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11 being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you[f] to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Brothers and Sisters,

Using the  Holy Bible as reference, what are the wages of sin?
