Theology in Sound Bites – 21

bible-162734_1280

There is so much confusion in our Christian life, what it means to live it, what does it look like. If one studies it one will hear terms like Justification, Sanctification, Union With Christ, Eternal Security, God’s Will, Love, Grace, Law, Mercy and other terms. While in a blog of our size it is impossible, nor is it our intent to go free diving to depths unknown in these areas, it is our intent to introduce terms, statements, reflections and thoughts on what we see as theological truth.  

Martin Luther said the following and we would echo it;

You Say…

By Suzanne Davis Harden

You say that you’re a pile of dung

That in the meadows lay

I say that you’re a cherished soul

For whom I died to save.

Bringing God Our Emptiness

Bringing-God-our-Emptiness

By Sam Williamson

My leadership at my church feels fruitless and my last few sermons stank; in the first 34 weeks of this year, I published only 25 “weekly” articles; and all my service to a partner charity feels last minute, like I’m doing everything in the nick of time.

Recently, I spend less time with my wife than I want; my brother (who lives in Australia) is visiting for two months and I’ve only met with him once;

Imperfect People of the Imperfect Church

By Kimm Crandall

If you were to ask me what kind of Christian I am (as in what denomination do I belong) I would most likely tilt my head, throw up my hands, and shrug. I might say something like, “I don’t really know. I guess I’m a bit of a mixed bag.”

I don’t like being a mixed bag. I really don’t.

I am a member of a community church with a Reformed Baptist pastor.

Man That’s Tough!

karate-1343889_1280

Life is tough enough when you believe that no one around cares or is there to go through it with you, it seems to become impossible to bear. What was once just difficult to face, takes that difficulty to a whole new level.

Yet, are we really ever alone? Have we ever known what it is truly to be abandoned or is this an emotional statement rather than a reflection of reality.

WHICH END OF CRITICISM ARE YOU ON?

man-888591_1280

By Lynne Raatz

John 5:10
“And so the Jewish leaders said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath; the law forbids you to carry your mat.”

ELBERT HUBBARD ONCE WISELY SAID, “TO AVOID CRITICISM SAY NOTHING, DO NOTHING, BE NOTHING.”

The truth is, no matter what we do, we will likely be criticized in some way. As such, when you boldly follow God in faith, expect to be criticized.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all those who have been brought near to God are on is not one about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer, and sound biblical teachings.

We also differ from most ministries in another key area, working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4 by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team, World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected to reconnect them, one soul at a time, to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
