“Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!” Colossians 2:21 (NIV) The epistle to the Colossians was written by Paul the Apostle during his first imprisonment in Rome about 61 – 62 A.D. and is included with his prison Epistles. The fact that this letter was written while Paul was in prison is of great significance because it means that he continued his walk with Jesus, spreading the Gospel even in bondage. Christians were…"DO NOT HANDLE: DO NOT TASTE: DO NOT TOUCH"
The mere possibility that a person can extract more than one application from brief passages of scripture speaks volumes about the Bible’s infinite remarkable, brilliant and timeless scope of wisdom. Confirmed as the oldest book in the world, the Bible is also the most controversial piece of penned literature as well. It’s been disputed, argued, researched, examined, observed and revered since the beginning of time. In short, the Bible may very well endure as much…"ARE ACTS OF THE FLESH OBVIOUS?"
“5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 saying to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, ‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and ‘On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.’” 7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘Do not…"Temptation: Do Not Put the Lord your God to the Test"
Jesus assured us that He will bring to full completion the work He began. Knowing this, we should acknowledge that personal holiness can only be realized when one incorporates discipline into his or her life for the sole purpose of engaging in the study of becoming more like Jesus. The bible teaches how to be more like Jesus. Leading a spiritually disciplined life leads to a personal holy life. According, to Pastor John Russell, the…"Distinguishing Between Holiness and Hollowness"
A few days ago I starting giving some thought to what kind of work-at-home career I can have when my unemployment runs out in a couple of months. Even though I’ve applied for jobs as required to receive unemployment benefits, nothing’s panning out. So what I’m doing is being pro-active! I’m not waiting until I get that last check. And actually I love blogging, so I’ve even considered making that a career instead of a…"IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND A PSYCHIC?"
In my opinion, the church failed youth and elderly people, both populations are negatively affected by this “new school thought” on Christianity. Mature Christians are in many cases a big part of worldly, family and spiritual problems. Many youths find themselves struggling to find their footing because too many mature adults show hypocritical behavior, eventually causing young people to stumble. The days of “do as I say and not as I do” are long…"In My Opinion the Contemporary Church Failed Youth and Elderly People"
On more than one occasion I have had a conversation with at least two preachers about today’s trend of churches paying guest preachers. Now, I will step lightly on this subject because I know that I can come off as a little radical sometimes. But, I said to the two preachers “I don’t get it?” Are you telling me that out of more than 1000 members in one case and a few hundred in the other,…"Is the Contemporary Church is Being Dishonest When it Claims to be Following Apostle Paul"
