23rd Psalm for TV

23rd Psalm for TV

 

 

The TV set is my shepherd,

My spiritual growth shall want.

It maketh me to sit down and do nothing for His name’s sake,

Because it requireth all my spare time.

So You Want to Marry My Daughter?

So You Want to Marry My Daughter?

 

This is for all those parents who’ve got someone dating their daughter and talk is turning towards marriage. That means her current boyfriend could soon be the one raising your grandchildren!

It is important for parents to be able to accept and bless a marriage relationship and sometimes to be the voice of reason about whether they should get married at all, especially when the happy couple are so in love they’re not necessarily thinking things through. Part of this is determining the long term compatibility of the prospective partners including assessing their life values and behaviours. Assuming you know your daughter reasonably well it is probably the prospective suitor you’re wanting to get to know.

Unravelling Protestantism’s Greatest Heresy

Today I want to investigate one of the cornerstone teachings of Protestantism, namely that Christ died to do away with the law (Torah or Old Testament laws). This is taught by mainstream Protestant theologians, pastors and teachers and has wide ranging implications for all of us.

There are only three possible options regarding the law (Torah):

1.         The law is completely done away with and now none of it applies;

2.         Some of the law still applies e.g. Thou shalt not kill;

3.         All of the law still applies.

One of these statements has to be correct and by the rules of logic the other two must be wrong.

Are You Under The Law?

Most believers would consider their answer to the question “Are you under the Law?” was pretty easy. It would be “No.” They would reach for Romans 6:14 and rightly proclaim that as followers of Messiah, Paul has clearly stated they are not “under the law.”

Rom 6:14 states:
For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace. (KJV)


The vitally important question leading from this is: What does “under the law” actually mean?
