Community for the church should be quite different from the world. It should be based in a relationship with God, truth, and obedience. The Bible calls it fellowship.
Doctrine & Life
God’s Word Believed and Applied
It is not unusual to have loyalties. Scripture speaks of a loyalty that should far exceed any other. The standard of loyalty was set by Jesus Himself.
Christians are saved from the wrath of God and the penalty of sin. Still, we must give account on the day of judgment. We can have full confidence toward that day!
With the tremendous turmoil currently taking place in the world, we should consider an Old Testament prophecy some Bible scholars think is yet to be fulfilled. Ezekiel 38 & 39 speaks of a war against Israel in the last days.
Does 1 Kings 19:12 teach that God whispers gentle things to Christians through a “still small voice?” A closer look at the phrase is quite revealing!
Christian discernment is not about being critical or judgmental. It is about loving God enough to base our actions upon His standards and not our own. God’s holy name is at stake.
Does the Biblical command to “Be still” mean we are to enter into silence? Be still, as God intended, means we are to stop and acknowledge that God is in charge over all!
As Christians, we are to evaluate everything we hear, especially consider that which makes “truth claims” into our lives. Why? We are commanded to in 1 John 4:1 – and for a very significant reason.
