Truth in Palmyra

Hang it on a Hook…

Let me preface by saying the doctrine matters; it matters a lot. Some things are correct, and some things are incorrect. Theology, the study of God, is something all believers should dive into. How can we come to know God if we do not study Him? Having said that….great thoughts here from Insanitybytes. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy.

Heard a lovely man say, “before you go out the door, remember to hang you theology and doctrine on a hook and pick up your love.” I sure liked that analogy. We hang our doctrine and theology up because it is precious, because it has worth and value. If we didn’t respect it, we’d just kick it off and throw it in a pile on the floor, like my kids used to do with some of their things.

No one is suggesting we throw it out or kick it under the bed, never to be seen again. You hang it up carefully on a hook where you can easily find it.

The thing is, you can’t really go out the door carrying a big load of doctrine and a big load of love at the same time. You just look like a mix between a one man band and a bag lady, clanging symbols and all.

I simply must poke some fun here, being on the internet and bumping into other Christians can be an eye-opening experience, one that sometimes reminds me that ignorance  is bliss. Speaking of hanging things on a hook, I feel like there are simply some people who could really benefit from being stuffed in a locker with a giant wedgie.… the rest of the post here: Hang it on a Hook…




Just a Thought

Colossians 2.9.JPG

Jesus is not to be prominent in our lives; He is to be preeminent in our lives.

Faith In Action-God Does NOT Tempt Us With Sin

faith in action

James 1:13

Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

Now James moves on to a different use of the word which was translated temptation. Here, James IS referring to the temptation to sin; he is no longer discussing the tests and trials of life. James has made a transition from temptation, or trials, as a noun to the use of temptations, or sin, as a verb. He is talking about the act of sin.

The discussion of the origin of sin and evil in the world could be and has been, written about in volumes. We aren’t going that deep here.

Clearly, God allows and even causes things to be placed in our lives that will test and grow our faith; we have talked about that up to this point. This is not true of temptation to sin. God, Himself cannot, of course, violate His own Law; nor can He even entertain the thought of doing something out of His nature. In the same vein, God will never place temptations to sin and perform evil into our paths as a way to test and refine us. That is what we are being taught here.

Although God did not create and is not responsible for sin, He did create us with free will. It did not take mankind long to exercise his free will and blow it. Even then, nobody wanted to assume responsibility for what they had done. Eve blamed the serpent; Adam blamed Eve and Adam even blamed God.

James is simply teaching us that our sin, and our actions, are our responsibility. Jesus saves us, and forgives us, but we are responsible for the things we do.
