Intelligent Design or Random Chance

When Aaron tried to pass off the golden calf that he had sinfully crafted as just a random object that somehow just popped out of the fire, Moses didn’t buy that foolishness. But for some reason all of the atheist, evolutionist, and secular humanist want to convince us that an intricately designed creation and especially humans, just randomly popped out of the fire like that golden calf. Intelligent people can clearly see that intelligent design was the basis for this world’s creation, and it was masterful crafted by the Intelligent Designer.

Science Catching up with the Bible

The Bible is the only true source of truth in this world. Many try to undermine not only the divine inspiration but also the divine preservation of the scriptures by saying it’s incompatible with science. However, when properly examined the Bible has presented “cutting edge science” long before the secular community ever caught up with the knowledge presented to us in the Bible. In the scriptures we learn about a circular earth, the moon’s impacts on the tides, the jet stream, the water cycle, and many other scientific truths long before they were ever accepted by the supposed academics among men.

Do You Know the Lord?

While the emphasis in modern Christianity is placed on your initiating a relationship with the Lord, instead the more appropriate question is God’s relationship with you. We should not ask “do you know the Lord?” but the more important question is “does the Lord know you”? God has intimately known his elect bride from before the world even began, long before we came to a gospel knowledge to know the Lord in our own mind and heart.

Trust in the Lord with All Thine Heart

Proverbs 3:5-6 is a very popular verse in the Christian culture today. However, this verse is teaching that oftentimes that we have to trust God’s will and way, even if it doesn’t make sense to us and runs contrary to our own natural thoughts. We must trust God in faith, commending our way and pathway over to him, even in those times when God’s guidance runs contrary to the path that we think is best for us; God’s path is always better than our pathway.

The Motive, Mess, Miracle, and Motions – Part 4

After the Lord has changed our inward motives by giving his children a new heart, now the outward exhibition of that work is a change in the “motions”, producing a significant change of course in the actions of our life. This change of motions should affect our speech, affect our disposition to forgive others, and strengthen the commitment and devotion in our marriages.

Psalm 119, An Exaltation of God’s Word

The longest chapter in the Bible is Psalm 119, which an acrostic song that is principally exalting the word of God. Here we see the value and blessing that God has left for us in inspiring and preserving his word. Therefore, we should have a love, delight, and passion to invest ourselves in the scriptures. We hope you will read Psalm 119 this week to see this beautiful exaltation of God’s word.

Law Salvation, All or Nothing

For any who place the need of obedience of works (or even the law) for eternal salvation, we are reminded that the scriptures require obedience perfectly to the whole law. The good news for those who fail before the law, is that Jesus perfectly obeyed the law of God and his obedience and righteousness are imputed unto his elect. We need to live in the liberty of grace, and not be constrained by the bondage of the law.

Purpose and Profitability of the Scriptures

God inspired his word for the purpose of thoroughly furnishing the children of God in this world, so we could serve and glorify God in good works. The scriptures give us the standard for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness, and we consider other declarations of scripture for the purpose of God’s inspiration of the word of God.

The Motive, Mess, Miracle, and Motions – Part 3

In spite of the “mess” that Adam and all men after him have made of this world, the miracle of the gospel is God’s salvation of sinners. In spite of our corrupt motives and our hearts that are tainted with sin, we are able to see the miracle of God’s love and salvation of His chosen people.

Meditation on the Scriptures

It is crucial for the children of God to not just read the scriptures but to meditate upon them, to constantly revolve them in our mind. What we truly love and care about is what is the constant thoughts of our mind. Therefore, if we truly love God’s word as we are commanded to, then we will constantly be meditating on the word both day and night.

The Motive, Mess, Miracle, and Motions – Part 2

Man in his own prideful nature wants to think that we are generally good in our heart. However, that denies the truth of “the mess” that man is in by his own depraved and corrupt nature. In the scriptures, there is no denying the ruined condition that is the result of “the mess” created by Adam and man’s corrupted heart.

How to Study the Scriptures

For the sincere disciple of Christ, one might ask: how do I study the scriptures? Well, you must first begin by making a commitment to read the Bible, to understand fully what the scriptures say as a whole. Then as you begin to study the Bible more in depth, we look at how you need to determine the context – both the scriptural, historical, and grammatical context of the writer’s intended audience and message. Finally, we must approach the scriptures with a prayerful reliance upon God to open our understanding to beautiful truths of the word of God.

The Motive, Mess, Miracle, and Motions – Part 1

God sees much deeper than man does; he knows the thoughts and the intents of our hearts. Therefore, God does not just judge us by our outward actions but he looks down even unto the motives of our heart that precipitated that action. Sins of the heart before God are just as egregious as sins of external actions, as we see from Jesus’ examples of lust and murder in the heart. Our motives should be to serve God from the heart, with a pure heart, fervently, loving God and loving others as we ought.

Blessings of Organized Religion – Discipline

As we continue to consider the blessings of organized religion, the church is God’s ordained structure for which discipline is maintained for the God’s children. The church provides the framework and structure for how we ought to act in this world. Also, we hold each other accountable for how we ought to act in a godly way in this world.

Necessity of the Scriptures for God’s Children

Even though sometimes we passively gloss over our requirement to study God’s word, it is an absolute and crucial necessity for every single child of God to be regularly immersed in the scriptures.

Paul’s Preaching to Felix

As Paul preached to Felix in Acts 24:25, “he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come.” We consider this progression as the natural flow of thought for our evangelism of others ignorant of the gospel truth. We establish the righteousness and truth of God. Based on God’s righteousness imparted unto us in salvation, we conform our lives to the teachings of God’s word to live in a temperate and modest manner. Finally, we are reminded of the righteous judgment of God to come that will be exhibited at the last day.

The Shepherds’ Gospel

On the night of the birth of Jesus Christ, a message of good tidings and great joy was delivered to some interesting characters, some shepherds in the fields of Bethlehem. They were given a message of good tidings of great joy that a Savior had come into the world. That is the same message of the gospel that we have today, and we should have the same desire to “blaze abroad” this comforting and joyful message for God’s children.

Blessings of Organized Religion – Fight Error

One of the important benefits of a structured church setting is the ability to assess and correct error and false teaching. The church upholds the truth of God’s word and is commissioned with protecting that truth. When we reject the church, it’s very easy to adopt our own misinterpretations of the scriptures when left to ourselves. However, those intimately involved in the church can be lovingly corrected back to the true teaching of God’s word.

Objections to Absolutism – Scriptural Evidences of Alternative Outcomes

As we conclude our five message series on objections to absolutism, this morning we consider a brief sample of the many instances in scripture where alternative outcomes are presented. If all events were unalterably decreed before the world began, then the multiple if-then statements in the scriptures are rendered null and void, along with many other passages. While eternal salvation is unconditional, there are many different paths our lives can take in this world based on our obedience or disobedience to God’s word.

Blessings of Organized Religion

Unfortunately it’s a common objection for believers today that they do not need the church – or organized religion – to walk in discipleship with Jesus Christ. However, Jesus placed a great priority and necessity of our need to assemble with fellow minded believers for many reasons. This morning we focus on the “learning” environment that should exist in the church, growing in the word of God together.

Objections to Absolutism – God’s Overruling Providence

While all events do not work together for our good and God is not controlling all events without exception, we do not want to discount the fact of God’s overruling providence in the lives of His children. God actively intervenes in the lives of His people to providentially bless, protect, and even overcome many evil deeds that occur here in this world.

Election: An Uncompassionate Doctrine? Part 3

In the concluding message on answering the objection that the doctrine of unconditional and sovereign election is uncompassionate, we consider how all men are undeserving of God’s grace at all in our lives. God does not use different means of saving different people, instead we are all saved the same way, by God’s sovereign grace. When we realize how many people a means salvation excludes from possibly being saved, we see that election is actually the most compassionate doctrine in the religious world today.

Objections to Absolutism – All Things Do Not Work Together for Good

It’s a very common response in Christianity today, to try to console those who have just endured a horrible tragedy by asserting all things without exception God is working together for the good of His children, with Rom. 8:28 as the basis. However, as we consider this morning, there are many things in this world that are not working together, and are not being worked together behind the scenes by God, for our good. Rather the beauty of Rom. 8:28 actually gives us a glimpse into the all things that hold our salvation eternally secure based on the unalterable covenant of redemption made by the Holy God who cannot lie.

Unconditional election by the sovereign grace of God is actually the most inclusive and compassionate doctrine there is, certainly as compared to a choice that is based upon the actions or works of men.

Objections to Absolutism – God’s Sovereignty and Man’s Responsibility

When we see bad things that happen in this world, we have to be careful to not place God as the cause or initiator of that wicked action. While God is fully sovereign to intervene and bless in any situation, when He removed his protective influence it’s natural for sinful actions to occur in its place. We look at several examples in scripture this morning that exhibit God’s sovereignty in the world, but how man is still held accountable for his disobedience of God’s law.

Election – An Uncompassionate Doctrine?

The doctrine of election – God’s unconditional choice of a people to salvation – is often misunderstood and portrayed to be an uncompassionate doctrine. However, the truth is that election by God’s sovereign grace is actually the most inclusive and compassionate doctrine is there is because it does not exclude millions of people who have not met some unscriptural condition of salvation. God’s family that he chose is a multitude which no man can number (Rev. 5:9 & 7:9) which is much larger than the restricted group that most Christian groups allow with a chance for salvation.

Objections to Absolutism – God’s Holiness & Man’s Sin

This morning we begin to consider the scriptural rejection of the doctrine of absolute predestination. Predestination, in scripture, is always regarding God’s choosing and predestinating a people, and never acknowledges the predestination of events. Man oftentimes attempts to blame God for suffering and sin in this world, but God is too holy to even look upon such sinful actions.  Rather it’s all man’s fault for the sin and suffering and pain we find in this world, while God is the source of all good and righteousness.
