Miscellaneous Notes for August 25, 2014

If the Bible is God’s word, then…

#####

Just as Jesus asked, “Was the baptism of John from heaven or from men?” (Matthew 21:25; Mark 11:30; Luke 20:4) so we should ask, “Is the Bible from heaven or from men?”  Equivocation in our answer suggests that the spirit of Pharisaism is guiding us.

#####

 We choose to either live our lives before men or live them before God (Matthew 6:1).  That choice makes all the difference.

#####

Textbook Christianity – that’s what we want.  And the textbook is the Bible.

#####

If you don’t like being corrected, you will not like being a disciple of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 12:5, 6).  Don’t feel bad, though.  It’s all for your good.  And you’ll feel peace in the end (Hebrews 12:11).

#####

If the Bible is God’s word, then shouldn’t we be taking its message a lot more seriously?
