"He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." 1 John 4:8

Have you ever thought about what this verse is really saying? Does God love everybody regardless of their actions or thoughts? Is God's love some kind of "catch all" for all the misfits, incorrigibles, law breakers and child abusers? Does this mean that regardless of the life of any person, God will love him in the end? Bible teachers encourage us to always get the context of any passage before interpreting it, so let's look at the context.

By the time you read this, the election results will be history. The New Religious Right will be happy or the liberal left will be happy. Actually, the results will be whether we increased or slowed down our plummet into the depths of destruction. Billions of dollars were spent on promoting a cause. To some the cause was purely racial, they saw no other issue.

Why do God’s people sometimes do bad things? Most of us know someone who used to walk in the Spirit (as best as we could tell) and now they are openly walking in the flesh. Since most religionists think people are saved by their good deeds, it is no problem to brush them off as becoming lost again. We do know that there are counterfeits and that some people have never been saved, such as those in Matthew 7:21-23. I want to discuss those who have been genuinely saved and then turned aside.

Paul admonished God’s saints at Corinth:

It's resurrection time again!

"Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matthew 12:38-40

Clearly Israel's history was of importance in showing God's displeasure at their disobedience and hence served as "tupoi" or "figures" and "examples" to help prevent a repeat of the nations indiscretions. In rehearsing this he reveals the nature of the time then present, and hence the importance of being careful in personal and collective deportment . The Corinthian believers were experiencing "τὰ τέλη τῶν αἰώνων, the ends of the ages".

Elijah was one of the most feared prophets in the Bible. He appears from out of nowhere before Ahab, king of Israel, announcing it would not rain for a few years (1 Kings 18.) We later learn the drought lasted for 3½ years. King Ahab set out to punish Elijah, but his pursuit was in vain until Elijah decided to show himself and set up a showdown with Ahab’s ministerial council. Myriads of sermons have been preached on Elijah’s prayer and God answering it by sending fire from heaven to vindicate Elijah.

The Error of Easter, The Lunacy of Lent and the Fable of Good Friday.

The greatest days for church attendance each year are Christmas and Easter. Now, personally, I like these days because it reminds every person on earth that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh and died, was buried and resurrected for our sin. Everyone is reminded of these two truths twice a year. Also like the truths, there are some lies that are perpetrated at the same time.

MID-ACTS and THEISTIC EVOLUTION

The mid-acts position starts the church (of whom Christ is head) in the book of Acts. This has many consequences, including the playing of doctrinal catch up on many manifestly clear observations about the church that all with open eyes can see. For example the church today has no signed gifts, we do not observe them despite many claims by some for their presence. Yet if the mid-acts position is true then the church should have them -- in fact the body of Christ as taught by Paul in 1 Cor.12-14 is composed of members with these gifts and whose distinctiveness depends on their presence.

News reports and headlines report that the moral and spiritual plummet in the United States are increasing daily. In the midst of the problems the Roman Catholic Pope comes to America and speaks of immigration, global warming and unity, totally ignoring the bloodshed and miscarriages of justice all around us. Prior to his visit here, he signed a treaty with the "State of Palestine" saying he hoped this recognition would stimulate peace with Israel and Israel said it would do the opposite.

Someone asked me if I could talk to one person from my past, who would it be. Without a doubt it would be my daddy. I ran many years behind in realizing how much he loved me, how brilliant he was, how he sacrificed for me and what good advice he gave me. Usually we do not think much of a father's love; we think more of his discipline or instruction, yet the first time "love" is mentioned in the Bible, it is a father's love.
