The Salvation of the soul (1)

Pastor praying for church faithful

An armed robber attacks you and gives you two choices: your body or your soul? Which would you give up? The natural man always gives up the soul in order to preserve the body. But the believer should always give up the body knowing it is of relatively little importance.

Good and bad success

Failure is written into the very fabric of the gospel. When a man is determined to trust in God, he has to be ready to be a failure. He also has to be prepared to suffer violence and endure rejection. Even Jesus might call you a dog, but you must refuse to be discouraged. The crowd might try to shut you up, but you shout out the more.

What time is it ?

It took me some time to process this strange information. But, on reflection, I came to understand exactly what he meant. It is of the mercies of the Lord that everything in this world is temporal. Thank God, everything about this world is subject to change. But everything about the world to come is permanent.

A picture taken on January 1, 2016 shows the nine-metre tall statue of Jesus Christ carved from white marble, thought to be the biggest of its kind in Africa, unveiled in Abajah, southeastern Nigeria.
Standing barefoot with arms outstretched, the "Jesus de Greatest" statue weighs in at 40 tonnes. More than 100 priests and hundreds of Catholic worshippers attended the nine-metre (30-foot) statue's official unveiling in the village of Abajah in southeastern Nigeria. It was commissioned by Obinna Onuoha, a local businessman who hired a Chinese company to carve it and placed it in the grounds of a 2000-capacity church that he built in 2012. / AFP

The believer’s authority

Jesus was a man under God’s authority. This placed him: “far above all principality and power and might and dominion.” (Ephesians 1:21-23). He exercised complete authority in all areas of life. He healed the sick and cleansed the lepers, exercising authority over sickness. He stilled the storm and walked on water, exercising authority over nature.

What Does God Want?

If you have been to some churches lately, you can be forgiven if you conclude the one thing God wants from believers is our money. Every trick or witchcraft is used in the churches today to squeeze money from church-goers in the deception that for every kobo you give, God will give you a hundredfold return.

The Bible is not infallible (2)

There are four gospels in the New Testament bible said to have been written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. However, these books were written anonymously, there were no names in any of the original manuscripts. As Rev. Dr. Hooykaas says: “The titles placed above them in our Bibles owe their origin to a later ecclesiastical tradition which deserves no confidence whatever.”

Children of Father Paul

Why are some Christians so upset when we question Paul’s epistles? Why do they become abusive when we demonstrate painstakingly that Paul’s doctrine is at variance with Jesus’? The reason is simple; many Christians are Christians not because of Jesus but because of Paul. Without Paul, Christianity would no longer hold any attraction for them.

The Bible is not infallible

There are false prophecies in the bible. They are intended to dilute the impact of the more radical prophets. Everything points to the scribes and the priests as the architects of these distortions, since they are often pilloried by the radical prophets. Jesus confirms this by accusing them: “You nullify the word of God for the sake of your tradition.” (Matthew 15:6).

Jesus is the New Testament Bible

Jesus says: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4). Many take this to mean there is life in the scriptures. But Jesus says different. He tells the Jews: “You diligently study the scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” (John 5:39-40).
