Disclaimer: About This Blog

THIS BLOG IS: my personal journey of how I am rethinking some of my spiritual beliefs.
THIS BLOG IS NOT: intended to point fingers at people who I think are wrong.
I do not believe the final judgement will be based on how many correct answers we get on a theology exam. I believe many people throughout history have had genuine relationships with our Lord and Saviour Jesus, despite holding questionable beliefs and practices. I make no claim to having it all figured out or being your judge. If we end up disagreeing over these topics I pray we can find a way to demonstrate grace.

Repost: We finally Got The Bible Right

"So this is where our movement came along and finally got the Bible right."

"Jesus is so lucky to have us"

This cartoon made me laugh, yet it should make us cry.  Being the week of prayer for Christian Unity, I hope we can recognize how wrong and arrogant an attitude like this would be.

Maybe church unity has less to do with church denominations or movements, but everything to do with the church (the people). Denominations may do a good job promoting unity on a local scale, but they may do so at the expense of creating divisions with those outside their circle.

On the other hand, if Christ's church is simply people, whenever they get together- the way church seems to be defined in the New Testament... Church unity becomes easier to recognize without the 'us vs them' mentality.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.

His church is made up of many. Many who understand and believe His pure gospel for the ungodly…and many who don't. God doesn't hold our bad theology against us.

But Christian freedom is at stake (Gal. 5:1)

So that why we contend for it in the face of those who would have us add something of ourselves to the Cross of Christ.

We don't judge their salvation. Never. But we have every right to criticize their errant theology and poor (self-focused) preaching when we come across it.

Thanks, Jon.
