Why did God Accept Abel's Offering, but Not Cain's? Print E-mail
Written by eric francke   
Wednesday, 22 August 2012

Early in the book of Genesis, immediately after the Fall, we find the story of Cain and Abel, the first two children of Adam and Eve.

To the natural eye, this may look like a mythical tale of murder, prompted by the envy flowing from unwarranted favoritism expressed by God… but that is only to the natural eye.   The purpose of the story, and how it fits in perfectly to the mosaic of salvation through grace is evident if you take a second look.

What is the Unforgivable Sin? Print E-mail
Written by eric francke   
Tuesday, 27 March 2012
Many Christians have heard that there is something called the “unforgivable sin”. And almost as many have anxiously considered that they have committed it, and are possibly now beyond God's gracious offer of salvation. What is the “unforgivable sin”, and is it something that maybe we have inadvertently done?

There are a few verses in the Bible that appear to have strong, even “scary” warnings to Christians regarding their behavior. Among them are Hebrews 6:4-6 (“For it is impossible [for those who have fallen away] .. to renew them again unto repentance”.) and Matthew 12:31 (“blasphemy against the Holy Ghost...shall not be forgive”).

What is Passover? Print E-mail
Written by eric francke   
Sunday, 04 March 2012

Passover is the festival which commemorates and celebrates the night that the Israelites gained their freedom from Egypt, and left on their journey that would eventually take them across the Red Sea, and to the promised land.

It is celebrated by Jews starting on the 14th day of Nisan (which would be the 14th day after the new moon, and so it is not always on the same date as our Gregorian calendar) and it recounts how God sent His ten plagues upon Egypt to convince the Pharaoh to let the Israelites go. The word “Passover” is a reference to the 10th plague, which was to inflict the Egyptians with the death of their firstborn, but would “passover” and not effect the house of the Hebrews who had put the blood of a lamb on their doorposts and lintels to their homes.

What is Christian Legalism Print E-mail
Written by Dawn Wilson   
Sunday, 26 February 2012

 

Simply put, Christian legalism is the erroneous doctrine that one’s salvation is gained (and maintained) through good works. While sounding Biblical, this deceptive philosophy actually is in stark opposition to the Word of God, for it usurps Christ’s redemptive work, negates God’s gift of grace and shows a lack of faith and trust in the Father’s promises.

Although most Christians know and accept John 3:16, (that our salvation was paid for by Jesus’ sacrifice), many still do not grasp that our justification, sanctification and redemption were completed simultaneously, as well (Titus 3:4-7).  It is not about what WE do or do not do, but what CHRIST has already done for us.  So, do we trust that Christ’s work alone on the cross was and is sufficient for us?  A legalistic mindset looks at what Christ has done as the ‘starting’ point, rather than His finishing work, believing once saved, now we must be perfect. Fearful, if we fail, we may lose our salvation. Or worse, that God will punish us with illnesses or calamities. Our walk then becomes more of a numbers game…do the good deeds outweigh the bad ones?

Was Jesus Born on December 25th? Print E-mail

Was Jesus Born on Christmas (Dec 25th)?

In short, no, or at least, highly unlikely.
The Bible doesn't say specifically when he was born, and most Bible scholars recognize that the description of shepherds “tending their flocks by night” is not a practice that would take place in December, or other winter nights.

The early church before the 4th century never even speculated that Jesus might have been born in December. Many of the early church fathers thought that the Spring was more likely.
