Christians are idol worshipers (II)

Whenever there is a cautionary word of prophecy, it is customary for supercilious Christians to automatically exclude themselves.  Thus, some Christians object to the assertion that Christians are idol worshipers on the grounds that it does not leave room for possible exceptions.  But the prophetic word does not give room for self-exclusion.  It is tautological, creating the need for general self-introspection.

Christians are idol worshipers

Atheism does not exist. Man is a worshiper. Everybody worships. The critical question is who or what we worship.

I went to buy blank videotapes in a van emblazoned with Christian VideoNet on both sides. When I came out of the van, an Asiatic gentleman engaged me in friendly banter. He was clearly not a Christian, but I soon got the impression he was in the marketplace for a new religion. He did not wait for me to witness to him. Having seen the insignia on the van, he wanted me to tell him about Christianity. But then he had some vital questions he wanted cleared up right at the onset.

God want to heal you (2)

“Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17). Therefore, saving faith comes by hearing that Jesus is the saviour; and thereby we are saved. Similarly, healing faith comes by hearing that Jesus is the healer, and thereby we are healed: “This fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, ‘He took our sicknesses and bore our diseases.’” (Matthew 8:17).

God wants to heal you

Most definitely! In the Old Testament, God reveals himself as Jehovah Rophe; the Lord who heals. He said to Israel: “If you will listen to the voice of the Lord your God, and obey it, and do what is right, then I will not make you suffer the diseases I sent on the Egyptians, for I am the Lord who heals you.” (Exodus 15:26).

Controlling anger 2

One of the ways we can control our anger is by overlooking offences. Solomon counsels: “A wise man restrains his anger and overlooks insults. This is to his credit.” (Proverbs 19:11). Your busybody friend who is a news-broadcaster asks: “Do you know Ngozi says you are a cheapskate?” Simply reply: “Good for her.” Jesus says: “I do not accept praise from men.” (John 5:41). If so, neither should we accept insults but should ignore them.

Christians: Watch out for the firstfruits scam

Jesus says: “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’” (Mark 11:17)

This statement was true in the time of Jeremiah, who wrote it initially. It was true in the days of Jesus, who quoted Jeremiah. It remains true today, confirming it as a word of God. Jesus says: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will by no means pass away.” (Matthew 24:35).

Doing greater works than Jesus

Jesus says: “He who believes in me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to my Father.” (John 14:12). This statement has confounded many Christians. Very few are bold enough even to imagine doing greater works than Jesus. And yet, Jesus’ words cannot be broken. Some believers have done far greater works than Jesus. But we do not even realize it because we do not know what it means to do the works of God.
