Some people with their “bible knowledge” speak out to “defend their faith” against Christian Contemporary Music. I’ll try to portray Ps. Mark Driscoll’s style, “It would be easier for me to make fun of them.”
What’s your opinion about Tattoo? Are Christians allowed to have tattoos? Seems that Bible forbids you to have tattoos. but look again.
Ok so here’s the deal… Bible does talk about Tattoo.. Lev 19:28. But you cannot take it as raw. If you do a Bible Study, you do something called Exegesis/Hermeneutics, meaning a critical text interpretation. So we have to perceive and and interpret Bible as whole. Continue reading →
Seriously, you’re not reading this because you don’t know how to commit sin, right? It’s in our nature!
You know the story of human’s fall into sin, right? I think you all have known this story since Sunday School. When you learn about it at Sunday School, you know that Adam and Eve fell into sin because they were seduced by the devil then they ate the forbidden fruit, right? You might read or learn elsewhere that they fell into sin because of the want of being the same as God. Are those all? Let’s study this story deeper guys. Continue reading →
This is a question from a church forum on Facebook:
Is it unrighteous for a Christian to like secular music? To be honest, there should be no music listeners who only listens to Gospel music. But there are some people who put a standard that people who still listen to secular music are unrepentant.
I said in my mind, Come now, I will prove you with mirth and test you with pleasure; so have a good time [enjoy pleasure]. But this also was vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility)! - Ecclesiastes 2:1 (AMP)
As a church musician whose plan is to pursue jazz music studies in the United States, of course I’ll answer, well that’s certainly OK. But we should look up our Bible, to not to be subjective, that says all things are lawful but not all expedient (1 Corinthians 6:12). The Bible also honors tradition of men, of course as long as it doesn’t fail the scriptures (Matthew 15:3, Acts 15:19-21, 1 Corinthians 9:19-23, Galatians 1:4).
Penetapan natal, dan kedua hari paskah seperti yang kita ketahui adalah penetapan oleh gereja. Penetapan hari jumat sebagai hari matinya Yesus oleh Gereja Katolik sebelumnya adalah karena dikatakan bahwa besoknya adalah hari sabat (Yoh 19:31), dan hari minggu sebagai hari bangkitnya Yesus(Yoh 20:1).
[BA-Debate] Is Jesus Gay, according to the Secret Mark’s Gospel?
by Calvin Limuel
Jesus has suffered many accusations during his walk on earth and even until now, there’s still so many false things said about Jesus. One of them, is Jesus, being gay. Here is one example of an article saying about Jesus being gay.
Professor Morton Smith, a Christian (believes that we essential know of the life and teachings of Jesus) has found a letter by the Bishop of Alexandria (c. 125 C.E.) describing a deleted passage of Mark’s Gospel.
It should be noted that Morton Smith is a Christian, and typical of them, even in their critical scholarship, they are committed to certain conclusion that the evidence fails to uphold. They invariable fail to address several compelling criticisms of the New and Old Testaments. They assume certain truths, which upon scrutiny aren’t truths. In the case of Morton Smith, he holds that there is an historical Jesus, a viewpoint that has been shown to be without merit by the German School of biblical scholars at the beginning of the 20th century and improved upon by later scholars.
yet another Christian being the follower of Jesusanity.
Sebuah kebenaran tidak mungkin sebagian benar sebagian salah, mari kita meneliti apakah Yesus hanya untuk umat Israel atau untuk seluruh umat manusia di dunia? Berikut adalah (lagi-lagi) Facebook notes dari akun Jalan Avraham
These summary were taken from Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church’s sermon titled “Jesus and Anxiety (Luke 12:23-34)”, as part of the ongoing series of sermon “Luke: Investigating The Man Who Is God”. I (Calvin) added some things I think necessary.
