Let's talk about life

There's a lot going on with us here at Freedom Life Grace Church. We can't fit everything into a service or Bible Study so we have made this blog available to you as a resource, inspiration, and amusement. 

Enjoy! Share! Repeat!

I would like this blog to leave you with more questions than answers. Bibliolatry - Bible worship - is rampant throughout the modern church, and that needs to be addressed. Rather than write a blog about how wrong it is, I'd rather simply spark a conversation. I've been known to take a bull in a china shop approach to topics like this in the past, but I've learned that it often does more harm than good.

A pastor from within my former denomination tagged me in a post. My assumption is that he genuinely wanted answers to these questions from someone who was "cut from the same cloth," so to speak. I also believe these answers will be helpful for those of you who also question how and/or if Christians can wave rainbow flags.

Scriptures: Matthew 9:13
We ultimately want to be good. Our image of God is the one who is the blueprint of goodness. Whatever He is, we strive to become. God doesn't make mistakes, so in order to please Him, in order to be accepted by Him we can't make mistakes either. How silly of us to think that way. What an impossible standard we have created for ourselves. No wonder religion makes us crazy.

One of my greatest frustrations with Christianity is its belief that Jesus is only found in it - that Jesus is somehow limited to revealing Himself only to those of a particular brand of faith. The truth of the matter is God is not a Christian and neither is Jesus. One of the most polarizing words in the world is Jesus, with Christian being a close second. Whether you are a Mormon, Catholic, or Protestant, Jesus is a big deal to your faith. I really find it interesting that Jesus is also a big deal in the Jewish faith, and Islam, too. So what is the problem?  

The problem with believing Jesus is a Christian, or more broadly, to follow Jesus one must call him or herself a Christian, is that it simply isn't true.

Scriptures: John 8:36
Gateway doctrines appear harmless at first. Yet, quite honestly, once you try a gateway doctrine you're never satisfied. You always want another hit, something stronger, and something more radical. Gateway doctrines start out small like a mustard seed, but once they take root, they turn into a large bush. If you are careful, if no one pulls you back into the fold, that bush undergoes a wild transformation and becomes a tree large enough to provide both rest and shade.

What's happening to the Bible?
Gospel Artist Erica Campbell shared a picture with a caption stating "The #NIV has taken scriptures out of the bible on mobile devices and computer apps. 45 COMPLETE verses removed from the bible. #readitforyourself #dontbedecieved #readtheHolyBible" .
In summary, the picture states the NIV has removed 54,575 word including Jehovah, Calvary, Holy Ghost, and omnipotent. It prefaces this statement with Zondervan is now OWNED by Harper Collins, who also publishes the Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex.
