Comments Off on Obey the Authorities?, Filed in Videos, by CGP.
Does the bible offer conflicting advice as to whether we should obey civil or state authorities or not? Consider the advice of the Paul who lived in Rome and offered wisdom to the brethren in Rome about living quiet and peaceful lives under the rule of a pagan regime. Consider the wisdom of Peter and the other apostles who challenged the authority of the ruling elite in Judea. How do we reconcile these stories and draw conclusions about our relationship as Christians to the state authorities in our locale at this time in history. The bible provides us with the answers we need to make wise choices as to whether we obey the authorities. More

Comments Off on Why is Deuteronomy Vital for Christians?, Filed in Videos, by CGP.
Traditionally, the book of Deuteronomy was read orally to the people of Israel during the Feast of Tabernacles. There was a command to read it every seven years so each generation would be versed in the laws of the land. But what is the significance for Christians? You may be surprised to learn that while being tempted by Satan, Jesus countered Satan’s insinuations with the phrase, “It is written.” Then Jesus proceeded to quote from the book of Deuteronomy as his authoritative source for setting priorities and determining what was true.

Comments Off on Atonement — Forgive Us Our Debts as…, Filed in Videos, by CGP.
The Lord’s Prayer has interesting parallels to the themes of the day of Atonement. This is especially true when it comes to ‘forgive us our debts.’ Often we think of these debts as ‘sins’ — missing the mark or sins of commission. But it also has the sense of not having fulfilled a duty — sins of omission. We owe God for those times when we failed to do our duty, and yet, he is faithful to forgive these debts. But there is a caveat. He says he will forgive our debts to the degree that we are willing to forgive the debts of others. As his children, God is asking us to let go of the wrongs we have suffered, the debts that have not been paid to us, and the resentments we might be harbouring due to unfulfilled duties that we are owed.
This ties in directly with Atonement and the message of the Jubilee. More
