Deliverance from Bondage Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the

Read Through the Bible – Day #110 – Acts Chapters 21 & 22

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

Forms of False Christianity: Part 9 – Judaized Christianity

Kate/ June 15, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, The Church, Uncategorized/ 0 comments

Judaized Christianity is Christianity that still wants to keep enforcing some of the old Jewish laws. Jesus came to fulfill the Law, and those seeking to live by the law must die. Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of

Good works and/or rites (baptism/communion/circumcision – more subtle forms of works) = salvation. For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but

Choosing of the Seven Now at this time while the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint arose on the part of the Hellenistic Jews against the native Hebrews, because their widows were being overlooked in the daily serving of food. So the twelve summoned the congregation of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable for us to neglect the word of God in order to serve tables. Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven

In Your presence I shed this flesh For I am clothed in Your righteousness. Earthly glory is not my identity What can mere man do to me? This world is not where I am from I have a hidden, heavenly home. I am an alien from a world No eye has seen, no ear has heard. With sorrows here I

False Religion and False Spirituality

Kate/ May 25, 2018/ Counterfeit Christianity, Legalism, The Church, Uncategorized, Why Jesus Hates Religion/ 0 comments

Since I wrote the series “Why Jesus Hates Religion“, I’ve felt that I need to follow this up with a piece about true vs. false religion and true vs. false spirituality. From information I’ve absorbed online and observed/heard in person, I’ve been realizing that much of the “not religious but spiritual” crowd is promoting a false spirituality and poorly describing what bad

Healing the Man Born Blind As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?” Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him. We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long

Jesus Goes to Galilee Therefore when the Lord knew that the Pharisees had heard that Jesus was making and baptizing more disciples than John (although Jesus Himself was not baptizing, but His disciples were), He left Judea and went away again into Galilee. And He had to pass through Samaria. So He came to a city of Samaria called Sychar, near the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph; and Jacob’s well
