The Commandments of יהוה (God’s Name in Hebrew) gives us an opportunity to show our love for Him. Contrary to Greco-Roman idea inherited by the Church that the Law is rules, restrictions, and obligations: The Biblical Hebrew idea is exactly the opposite; the Law is Freedom (there are verses in scripture which explicitly say this). God gave the Law so that I should be free, not that I should be restrained. As the Rabbis say, “the man without Torah is the most enslaved man in the world.” A man without Torah is a slave to his passions and his own ideas. A man with Torah knows what God wants and all He has to do is perform them. - Dr. Bondfleet Messianic Movement Africa.   #TorahIsFreedom     #jesussaves     #jesuslovesyou     #godislove     #godisgood     #blessings  🙏   #savedbygrace     #hisgraceisenough     #hisgraceandmercy     #jesusislord     #lordoflords     #kingofkings     #truechristian     #truechristianity     #prophecy     #godiswithus     #bibleverses     #gracebyfaith     #repentandbelieve     #gospeltruth     #remnant     #godblessyou     #notofworks     #faithandworks     #holyspiritcome     #pastor     #theology

Regarding daily bible reading. Is it a helpful practice for christians to read the Bible every day. Absolutely! Especially if you’re using a tool like a study guide or an app. But don’t feel guilty if you don’t. It’s common in Christian culture to guilt trip ourselves or each other about reading the Bible. The truth is, the ability to read the Bible daily in your own home didn’t exist until about 500 years ago with the invention of the printing press. Even then, you likely only had one copy in your home. The Bible during the first 300 years of church history didn’t exist as we know it today. The gospels, Paul’s letters, among other books were still circulating among the churches. Around 350 AD Constantine ordered 50 bibles to be compiled, copied (by hand), and distributed among the churches in major cities (this copy is now known as Codex Sinaiticus). In addition to the 66 books found in the current Protestant bible, this bible also contained the apocrypha (the books found in the catholic bible canon), Tobit, Judith, 4 Maccabees, Wisdom, and the epistle of Barnabas. For most of the Christian world between 350 and 700AD this was the Bible. Sometime around 700 a Latin version of the Bible is circulating that is later called Textus Receptus, and that becomes the main bible used among Christians. But even with these two Bible versions (canons), the common person did not have access to. The cost of making each of Constantine’s bibles was approximately $300,000 in today’s currency. So it goes without saying that not just anyone got to handle this Bible. That thing cost $300,000, only trained people with white gloves to keep oil away, and funny hats to keep hair from falling into it got to handle this thing. It was the only bible in your town, and it cost a fortune, obviously over time it would become sacred object. So for the first 1500 years, the common person didn’t have access to a bible. Can you imagine if we applied the same guilt and pressure to read the Bible daily the way Christians pressure each other today? Do not misunderstand me, I feel we are lucky to have access to the Bible; I own a dozen copies including some in the... continues in comments

The religion of both Old and New Testaments is marked by fervent outspoken testimonies against evil. To speak smooth things in such a case may be sentimentalism, but it is not Christianity. It is a betrayal of the cause of truth and righteousness.

Christ is the most bountiful physician. Other patients do enrich their physicians, but here the physician doth enrich the patient. Christ elevates all his patients: he doth not only cure them but crown them (Rev. 2:10). Christ doth not only raise them from the bed, but to the throne; he gives the sick man not only health but also heaven.

In my life, white sprawl was disguised under a mantle of hard work, virtue, and perseverance. I wasn’t explicitly taught to colonize spaces or practice Manifest Destiny. I was simply taught that I deserved to go wherever I wanted because I worked hard. I was taught that I could expand into any environment not because I forced my way in, but because I had earned my way in. In this way, the imperialism of white sprawl was masked as a virtue.

It’s been a paper writing kind of week. This one took rather a lot of wrangling, but I think I’m on the home stretch (good thing- it’s due tomorrow). Nice that I had my furry moral support so close by.   #trufflethehavanese   . . The assignment was to trace the interpretation of a difficult passage through four eras of church history. It was interesting, but a lot to fit in. .   #theology     #gradschool     #theologygradschool     #theologyreading     #theologywriting     #seminary     #austingraduateschooloftheology

I have decided to start a new personal graphics challenge. As I go through my study of the book of Acts, I will be making graphics to go along with my studies. Here is my first one and a personal favorite. Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."” ‭‭
