From the heart…

Good prayer Nikki, thanks for it.

Thoughts of a Preacher's Daughter

My heart is so heavy and filled with tension . My mind is overcome with anger yet I am desperately looking for your guidance . The enemy is busy and I have fallen into his trap please save me from myself .

I look to you for protection I look to you for direction I am nothing on my own. Teach me to see Satan’s tricks but turn to your words and keep them close to my heart. When my faith gets shaky and I stumble I know that you will shield me and pull me out of the darkness of despair.

Disappointed in my behavior I know that you have already forgiven me yet the memory of the day still replays in my mind. I will reach my goal and finish my course for God knows my heart and he will see me through. Today is done and the…

Just a Thought

Worship-The proper response of all we are to all He is says and does.

John 4:24 

 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Is Jesus Really God? Part Three – Attacks On the Divinity of Jesus Christ

 

Part Three of this older series.

Like almost any doctrine considered to be central and core to traditional orthodox Christianity, the Doctrine of the Divinity of Jesus Christ has been under assault almost from the beginning of the New Testament church age. Yet, there is almost no Doctrine more tied to the core of true Christian faith than this one. Without it, there basically is no Christian faith as it has been traditionally known.

I had said we would discuss some of the more major assaults on this concept, and we will. Rather than me spending the next 20 years developing the ability to relay some of these thoughts and then representing them in some coherent form, my plan today is to briefly describe some of them and provide some links for further reading by readers.

One of the more prominent sources I use for this is the gotquestions.org website. It is simply a smorgasbord of good articles about traditional, true, orthodox Christianity.  Also, I use the equip.org website of the Christian Research Institute. This is not an endorsement of full agreement with all things on those sites, but they are a great place to seek information. There are also some other sites I will link to which provide some great thoughts on this rather difficult topic.

Some say this Doctrine was a made up one, occurring at the demand of Emperor Constantine simply to bring peace to his empire. That is one of the more common arguments made by those who want to disbelieve this critical doctrine. The facts of the matter are that critical doctrines were not voted on and decided at the various councils in the early years of the church; things which had been known and taught from the beginning were simply reinforced.

Did the Council of Nicea vote Jesus as God?

What occurred at the Council of Nicea?

What Really Happened at Nicea?

There are many alternative views presented to the Divinity of Jesus Christ, all of which are proven to be quite wrong and mistaken according to Scripture.Here are some good links on some of the more important early controversies concerning the Deity of Jesus Christ?

What is Arianism?

What are Docetism, Apollinarianism, Ebionism, and Eutychianism?

The controversy surrounding the Divinity of Jesus Christ was hardly resolved in the early centuries of the church but has remained a heresy which has reared its head over and over again. Even today, true believers have found themselves having to argue with people like theologian Bart Ehrman and author Dan Brown to maintain purity in the truth.

Jesus Christ Do We Have the Real Story?

The Divinity of Christ

There is a lot of information on those links, and links within those could keep a reader occupied for months if not years. I will check back in a decade or so, and we will talk about them all.

Okay, not really. Next, we will take a look at some very simple, very real reasons why the Divinity of Jesus Christ is and has been, under attack since the very beginning of the church. After that, we will begin to cover, very simply, just how God’s Word clearly teaches that Jesus Christ was, in fact, God.

Until  tomorrow, Peace

Bogard Press Daily Devotional-Jesus Gives a New Commandment

by Beverly Barnett

Jesus Gives a New Commandment

John 13:31-38

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; 
as I have loved you, that ye also love one another,” John 13:34.

Judas hurriedly left the upper room. The tension was thick in the room, but Jesus knew how to calm the storm of emotions. He reassured the remaining disciples and refocused their worried thoughts. Jesus came to earth for such a time as this. As He spoke to them, there was calmness in His voice. Can you hear it?

Before anger could build in the hearts of the disciples, Jesus redirected them to that one word “Love.” Love one another as He had loved them. Love can cover a multitude of hurt. Love can forgive the unforgivable. Love can love the unlovable. Love crosses oceans and streets. Love shares the story of love. The disciples needed another dose of love; otherwise, they may have hunted Judas down and took care of the traitor. Gently and calmly Jesus shared the new commandment with these unstable followers, “Love one another; as I have loved you.” That commandment echoes through the pages of the Bible and rings in the ears of His followers today—“love one another; as I have loved you.” Jesus loves us; let us love one another.

REFLECTION: What have we learned about love? Love is pliable and can reach around the world beginning in our own neighborhoods.

You worked hard on writing the perfect blog post. 3 people read it. Three. And one of them isn’t even your mom. Maybe you’ve been diligently putting in hours and hours on this big project at work and your boss doesn’t even notice. Perhaps you’ve been looking for work and can’t seem to find it. Or your marriage is struggling. Discouraged?

It’s Christmastime, and while the whole world is feeling jolly with Old Saint Nick, you’re feeling all “BAH! HUMBUG!” We all have times, even seasons, in our lives when we struggle. The struggles can cover a wide array of things: marriage, job, faith, kids, finances, love, joy, addiction, behaviors, attitudes, the HOLIDAYS…You get the picture…YOUR struggle IS real.

Discouragement weighs us down. It’s not some momentary melancholy melodrama. It distracts us from being all that God intends us to be, drawing our eyes of Him…
