Take Care with Your Liberty Now concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies. If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know; but if anyone loves God, he is known by Him. Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol

Chapter 21 ends mid-sentence, so I lumped Chapter 22 together with it. Neither chapter is very long. Paul Sails from Miletus When we had parted from them and had set sail, we ran a straight course to Cos and the next day to Rhodes and from there to Patara; and having found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia, we went aboard and set sail. When

  Paul at Ephesus It happened that while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul passed through the upper country and came to Ephesus, and found some disciples. He said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” And they said to him, “No, we have not even heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” And he said, “Into what then were you baptized?” And they said, “Into John’s

Paul at Thessalonica Now when they had traveled through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Jews. And according to Paul’s custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and giving evidence that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ.” And

Why Jesus Hates Religion: Part 9 – Division in the Body

Kate/ April 21, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, Legalism, Love, Uncategorized, Why Jesus Hates Religion/ 0 comments

Finding the Sacred Everywhere Can you meet God anywhere? Even in an uncomfortable setting – perhaps something different from what you grew up with? Or, when visiting another church fellowship, are you so distracted and annoyed by the furniture, the different worship style, the theological differences on small, non-central issues, the way people dress, or the different leadership structure, that

Why Jesus Hates Religion: Part 6 – Lip Service

Kate/ April 18, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, Legalism, Uncategorized, Why Jesus Hates Religion/ 7 comments

God Wants Our Lips and Our Hearts ‘This people honors Me with their lips, But their heart is far away from Me. ‘But in vain do they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.’” Jesus God looks at the intent of our hearts in our worship, not the style or simply the words we say. He doesn’t delight in

Why Jesus Hates Religion: Part 2 – Ignorance and Enlightenment

Kate/ April 14, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, Legalism, The Church, Uncategorized, Why Jesus Hates Religion/ 0 comments

Ignorance and Enlightenment The enemy has used both ignorance and “enlightenment” (or the perception of it) to mislead many. Even the church has been used many times to lead people into darkness – or to keep them there. In the Middle Ages, the Catholic Church capitalized on the ignorance of the laity regarding the truth of the Bible – deceiving and
