If you noticed when people are reading the bible, some even change their way of speaking.

Slaves of Love

Slaves of Love

What are they actually thinking? I was there too.

Then I realized Jesus was not like that. The Pharisees were like that.

They saw a God that was so high, too high to touch their lives. They tried to be good with all their strength. But, there was no way they could. But they thought they were good and even that they were following the law of God.  And what was worst, they thought they were better than other people. (more…)

Jesus teaches in the gospels that sin comes from our hearts to our minds and to our senses and it becomes an act once is consented in the heart.  But he condemns sin, before it becomes an act.

Matthew 5:27-28
“27Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.”
As you can see, the sin entered by the eyes, but it became sin by being consented in the heart.
The heart in the bible is often referred as the center of our desires and will power. (more…)

Christian Positions that are not according The gospel of Jesus Christ

It’s not enough to call ourselves Christians, we need to follow Jesus teachings and be light to the world bringing up The Kingdom of God. We all need to be born again and allow Jesus to lead our actions and thoughts.

  • Hate to Emigrants
  • Hate to homosexuals
  • Hate to Jews
  • Segregate Children with Home schooling
  • Supporting of wars
  • Believing that worth is synonymous of God blessing
  • Race divided churches

Hate to emigrants: This is contradictory to the hospitality preached in the bible, and original American values.

Hebrews 13:2
“Stop neglecting to show hospitality to strangers, for by showing hospitality some have had angels as their guests without being aware of it.”

Home Schooling and Segregation of your children: Believers are not called to segregate themselves, but to influence the world with their Christian faith.

Matthew 5:13-16:
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? … You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid… Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

Hate to homosexuals instead of hate to homosexuality: Christians should not hate to anyone neither behave aggressively against any group.  Homosexuality is wrong, but hate is not going to fix it.  Jesus shed his blood for everyone regardless of race, sexual orientation or gender.  Social and moral problems should be fix by the roots, not by the branches.  Only Jesus gives a new birth transforming the heart.  We can’t change anyone and can’t either push anyone into changing.

1 John 2:9-10
“Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him to make him stumble.”

Hate to Jews: The nation of Israel is the nation that God chose to put his name over it.  And The Lord those not repents.

It’s true that they rejected Jesus and God made a new covenant with his church.  But it’s also true that while believers in Jesus Christ are the spiritual Israel, The people of Israel are still the physical people of God.

Money as a sign of blessing: Money is part of earthly blessing.  But those seeking the kingdom make their treasure on Heaven where

Mathews 6:20
“But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.”

Race Divided Churches:

  • White churches will allow blacks, but they won’t let them assume positions of leadership.
  • Blacks will stay in a withe church, but would not feel happy with the differences and non intentional but still painful comments of racism.
  • Whites still can’t help to feel insecure in black communities.
  • White can’t either help to feel that they need to lead over blacks.
  • White still think that they are smarter and more educated for being white

As you can see, we all need to be born again and allow Jesus to lead our actions and thoughts.

Unless you take the kingdom of Dod as a child, you won't be saved.

A new creature, is what God is expecting.

Every one who come to Jesus, should experience a change, a change that will make you what Jesus called a new creature.

This new creature according to the bible is born from water and from Spirit.

First, it’s the commitment to change molding us by the word of God.  We usually do so,when we baptize and decide to live according to the scriptures.  This is the conscious decision of estimating the things from above over the things from this world.

Second, it’s the transformation of the heart or the new birth from the Spirit.  Where we no longer struggle on doing the will of God.  But rather the will of God is our will. Where the flesh is death and the spirit is alive.

For most of us, this will never happen because we get into the error of believing that we are already righteous.

One of the requirements for salvation is to recognize and confess our sins, knowing that we are all sinners.  We are all sinners away from the grace of God, because our hearts are bad.  We are selfish, we pursue the things of the flesh over the things of the spirit.

But unfortunately, the blindness do not allow us to see it. sometimes we do not see sin in our lives, at least not enough to feel repentance and regression of our way of living.

This is the reason why Jesus says that the prostitutes and the publicans will reach salvation before the Pharisees.

We need that humble heart of the man who went to the temple imploring forgiveness to The Lord, or like the women who washed Jesus feet with her tears and cleaned with her hair.   The Lord will clean our hearts when sincerely we ask for it.  The Spirit of the Lord which produces fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, meekness, goodness, faith, long suffering, self-control will purify us as the fire purify the gold.

We fall into the same trap of the pharisees.  But our Lord, Jesus taught us that the sin is not only in the act, but in the heart.  Until we receive a clean heart that only wish and think on what is good and put others above ourselves, the work of God is still in progress.

If you don’t repent from your sins, confess that Jesus is The Lord and keep his commandments living a holy life, you won’t be saved.

The Lord is coming at the time not expectedWhile some virgins were foolish and others were wise, all of them at one point slumbered and slept.

Matthew 25:5 “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.”
The 10 virgins represent the church in this parable
Christians, wake up! Get ready to receive The Lord. Nowadays, everything points at his second coming. (more…)

Fasting and Praying

Neither fasting or praying does anything for us. The true is that only God does, when we find grace with him.

Why then to fast and pray? We want to find grace at the eyes of God.
Fasting and praying are sacrifices that would not make sense if we do it in secret, unless we believe in God.

When we pray and fast, in secret, the only justification to such action is just plain believe that there is a God. And also that that God has some or all power to solve our problems. (more…)
