How Much of God’s Inerrant Word May We Ignore?

We live in deceptive times. The air of deception permeates society like no other time of history. Censorship, oppression, and the abolishment of freedom to think for yourself is lurking just ahead. As followers of Christ, we need to be aware, first off, not of what is going on around us, but of what kind of relationship we have with our Creator, Savior, Sanctifier, Healer, and coming King!

First, we must realize what we are. In Jeremiah, the Lord tells us:

The heart is deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?
I, the LORD, search the heart,
I test the mind,
Even to give every man according to his ways,
According to the fruit of his doings.

Jesus Came, He’s Coming Again!

Jesus is coming soon! These words encourage and inspire believers around the world. We celebrate His first coming at Christmas every year. We understand the signs preceding His first coming and when He came. First, we must realize that His coming was a supernatural event that broke natural laws. It also superseded everything that had happened from the creation of the world. The very Creator God humbled Himself and came to earth in human form through a virgin, which is biologically impossible. The human mind cannot comprehend a being that is totally God and totally human. It can be accepted for the fact that it is, but not fully comprehended.

Creation, The Law, Faith and Grace from the Book of Romans

Creation

The book of Romans explains so much about creation and the nature of man and reality as we know it. The Spirit quickly has Paul record this fact about the beginning:

For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:20)

Can the Age of the Earth be Calculated?

Here is our Earth, a young planet.

Achbishop James Ussher has been the butt of more ridicule on the subject of suggesting a date for the creation of the world, and ultimately the universe, than anyone else in history. He proposed the date of October 23, 4004 BC, and this date appeared as a marginal footnote in many Bibles up until the mid twentieth century. What should we think about his work that brought him to this conclusion?

Who is This Creator?

It seems that more and more when talking with people about whom God is, and His characteristics, that their perception of God is more of their own making rather than what is revealed through the Scriptures. This invariably leads to a form of idolatry and total misunderstanding of who God is. The most common perversion of God’s character is to make “love” the only characteristic He has. This usually leads to these believing that God loves everybody so much He would not send anybody to hell. Just to let them see the illogical consequences of such theology an inquiry about Hitler is made. Somehow God cannot love Hitler enough, and he has to go to hell.
