White Lies?

by on Feb.27, 2009, under True Christianity

Last year I saw Today show host “Meridith” admit that she lies, “Little White Lies”, like to her friends asking if an outfit makes them look fat, etc.  As a result, I don’t trust her reporting as much anymore.  How about you … Do you lie?

Is it OK for a Christian to lie? (No, I don’t think Meredith is a Christian.)

Here are a couple of scriptures for you to think about.  There are plenty more on this subject.

Lev 6:2-5 If a soul sin, and commit a trespass against the LORD, and lie unto his neighbour in that which was delivered him to keep, or in fellowship, or in a thing taken away by violence, or hath deceived his neighbour;
Lev 6:3 Or have found that which was lost, and lieth concerning it, and sweareth falsely; in any of all these that a man doeth, sinning therein:
Lev 6:4 Then it shall be, because he hath sinned, and is guilty, that he shall restore that which he took violently away, or the thing which he hath deceitfully gotten, or that which was delivered him to keep, or the lost thing which he found,
Lev 6:5 Or all that about which he hath sworn falsely; he shall even restore it in the principal, and shall add the fifth part more thereto, and give it unto him to whom it appertaineth, in the day of his trespass offering.

Colossians 3:9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;

Is there a time when its ok to lie?  NO!!!!!!!!

What kind of Christian are you?

by on Feb.26, 2009, under True Christianity

The simple answer is the kind of Christian you find in the Bible.  Sinners that have come to realize that we are lost and that the only way back to a relationship with God is through the grace that Jesus purchased with His blood.  Understanding and beliving that, we ended up at the same question as the men Peter preached to in Acts chapter 2.

Act 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

The people that understood Peter were hurt, upset, and wanted to fix this situation. Peter clearly gives all of us the answer in the next verse.

Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

I don’t know about you, but if our sins separate us from God and without sin He accepts us, than fixing it is what I want too!

So we have been baptized into the death, burial, and resurrection (Romans 6:1-14) of our Lord and Saviour.  Now we seek to grow our understanding of God, the gift of grace He as given us, how to conform ourselves to the image of God (Gal 5:16-26/Eph 5:1-21) in Christ

I’m sure we will be discussing this more … hey, that’s what this site is all about.
