The Problem of Suffering and How We Approach it

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 6th January 2018 in Christianity | evil,suffering,the problem of evil,human suffering,reconcilliation,pain,true religion,pure worship
...under any judgement or that they were any worse than another person — though there are certain times where God's judgement was on someone, but these things are explained in Scripture so we can expect them (see: Acts 12:22-23 and 1 Cor 11:28-32). We can infer consequential suffering from Jesus’ teaching when he speaks about a local tragedy of a tower collapsing and killing some people: Luke 13: 4-5 Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them—do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others living in Jerusalem? No […] Can we do anything about it? Christianity isn't about trying to philosophise about why...
 

Raised in the Heavenlies!

...g and the judgement. Even with Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians, when he says “we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord” (2 Cor 5:8), that still doesn’t necessarily say there’s no waiting in death before the final resurrection, but it does give hope that even in death, whatever it means, we will be present with our Lord in some form. The resurrection is glorified! I use the word “glorified” here because saying “physical” just isn't adequate enough to describe the mystery. Our new bodies will be similar to our current physical bodies, but not the same – not limited like our earthly bodies are; in the same way...

...erday’s judgement on those who would draw people away from the Church towards their own schisms and heresies. Though, he makes a distinction between those who have lapsed in their faith, and those who intentionally lead people astray; ...on the one hand, he who has lapsed has only injured himself; on the other, he who has endeavoured to cause a heresy or a schism has deceived many by drawing them with him. In the former, it is the loss of one soul; in the latter, the risk of many.  He goes on to say that if you go astray through lack of discipline or temptation, then you can repent and be forgiven, but the intentional heretics risk unforgiveness and the...
 

Lent Day 24: Athanasius: Life of Anthony: Chaps. 31-40

...Jesus in judgement (Matt 7:22); and so because of this, Anthony urges that we seek the gift of discernment as John wrote in his letter (1 John 4:1) that we may not be deceived. Anthony goes on to give some of his personal testimony to show that he is not just speaking at random, but from experience and from what the Lord had shown him. From visions and visitations of demons in disguise as angels or monks to trick him, to appearances of soldiers and beasts to scare him, to physical beatings; he spoke the name of Christ, sang Psalms and kept himself in prayer, and the demons fled and disappeared “like smoke”. In all things he kept this one thing at the fo...

...o reserve judgement on the matter until Chan comes out and gives a proper statement about his new views and says one way or the other if he’s going towards Rome fully, or towards one of the other more historically rooted Protestant denominations, if anything actually comes from this.   Further Reading / Sources: Full Francis Chan sermon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nUUbXzb2atM Short 3 minute Clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QP9roQQwzsA “BASIC series” on communion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4k5qHuDmEM https://www.theopedia.com/huldreich-zwingli https://patristics.info/ignatius-of-antioch-letter-to-the-smyrnaeans.html https...
 

Slavery in the Bible – Does God Condone Slavery?

Posted by Joshua Spaulding on 15th September 2020 in Slavery | slavery,bond-servant,Philemon
...a form of judgement by Holy God on a paganistic, rebellious people. It was actually mercy that the Lord allowed them to live in slavery, rather than to be destroyed for their extreme rebellion against God in embracing false gods, living in gross sin, and directly rejecting God’s people and God Himself. Because God judged these people in this way, does not mean forced slavery in itself is OK. God also judged His own people when they fell into idolatry and sin by allowing them to be enslaved and by allowing some to be murdered. Does that mean murder is OK? No. But God deals with sinful man by allowing the devil to do evil to those rebellious people. The devil m...
