Faith in Times of Doubt

faith in times of doubtA Dramatic Shift

Ancient Roman society lacked faith in God. Paul writing to Timothy decried everyday conditions, painting a murky picture of the attitudes and actions of his time.  Our society is experiencing a similar time of doubt. Over the past century much has changed when it comes to attitudes about religious belief. A recent Angus Reid poll declared that over 50% of those surveyed had a negative perception of religion in general. This is an amazing change! Almost equal groups of people, affirm that they are either “non-believers” or “religiously committed.” But, the remaining 60% are either “uncertain” or “private believers.”  These private believers are unwilling to let their faith be known. And, perhaps for good reason. It is difficult to live your faith in times of doubt. More

Winning the Spiritual Battle

win the spiritual battleIs the Law, Sin?

God sent Moses to deliver Israel from slavery in Egypt. God kept his covenant promise, and the lamb’s shed blood was a symbol. The blood on the doorpost protected and delivered every household. Later, the Father sent his son to deliver mankind from spiritual slavery, the slavery of sin. His perfect sinless sacrifice made this possible. Yet, many Christians do not understand this deliverance because they do not understand sin, lawlessness. In fact many believe it was the law that was enslaving people. Is this true? Some Christians look to the writings of Paul to bolster this negative view of the law. They say that Paul taught, “the law is sin.” But is this true? It is a matter of spiritual life or death.

What did the Disciples Do?

If you do not know the biblical worldview, you might be surprised that Jesus’ disciples were preparing for Pesach (Passover) and the 7 days of unleavened bread just before Jesus’ death. And though many today, celebrate Easter at this time of year, this was not the custom of Christ’s followers. How do we know? The bible provides the evidence, and we see the customs of the early believers from the accounts of Peter, Paul, and John. More

“Born Again” Christians?

There is a great irony in the Christian world. The apostle John wrote of a similar irony in the Jewish world of his day. They claimed to know God, and yet they had lost touch with biblical truth. John wrote of Jesus’ discussion with Nicodemus about being “born of the spirit.” And much later he wrote to the brethren to help them understand what it meant to be “begotten/born of God.” John wrote emphatically that, people who have the “seed of begettal” do not practice sin! They practice righteousness.

Material Progress without Moral Development

spinach1Can the network of cellulose veins in a spinach leaf, when stripped of its plant cells and replaced with human heart tissue, someday be used to repair the damage caused by heart-attacks? Or can the cellulose structure of broccoli or cauliflower, when stripped of their plant cells, be used as growing platforms for replacement lungs? Though it sounds like pure science fiction, bioengineers at the Massachusett’s Worchester Polytechnic Institute and at other research centres are working feverishly to make such ideas a reality.
