Part II – Should Christians keep the Law of Moses? – But Paul!

We are told that the words of Paul do away with the Law – this doesn’t fit with his words when he says in 2 Corinthians 6:14: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” – that word “unrighteousness” is “lawlessness” in the Greek. This indicates that believers should be lawful! Indeed Paul also said that if it was not for the Law he would not have known what sin was.

Should Christians keep the Law of Moses?

This is Part 1 of a four part series I’m putting out regarding the rational basis for keeping the Law of Moses. To me it is the most irrational thing that any Christian believes they are “not under the law” – try telling the traffic cop that! You are going to be governed by something and someone – shouldn’t that be God’s Law and God?

Shabbat Shalom to you all!

Yeshua is the Messiah – how do we know?

This is so simple, you’re going to kick yourself, just as I did, when Zach Bauer points out the obvious. Enjoy the video:

David Pawson – De-Greecing The Church

Please take some time to listen to these excellent talks about how Greek influence has affected the religion of God. It’s important that we understand that the basis of our faith has Hebrew roots, and that the Hebrew mindset is very different to the Greek. The influence of Greece on our faith and our culture, is enormous. Mr Pawson takes us through so many of those influences as they can be seen in our modern world today. From democracy to sport, Greece has had a hand in shaping our culture, and also our faith in ways we may not be aware of. A dear friend sent me this, and I recommend it to you.

The internet is rewiring your brain

This is a great short video – worth watching. Just as we pay attention to our diet, and believe we are “what we eat”, maybe we need to also think more carefully about how we consume the information on the internet, and more specifically how the way we use the internet either feeds into our ability to concentrate, or our distractibility.

I love the internet, but I’ve written before about the dangers both now and (more so) in the future. The internet allows me to study subjects to my heart’s content. But it also allows me to waste a lot of time being unproductive. Watch the video and then answer the question below. Please leave me a comment with your answer! Thanks.

So here’s my question: Did you manage to watch the whole video, giving it your full attention, or did you flip to another tab while it played, because you were distracted?

I was distracted to start with, then I tried to watch carefully, but my mind was thinking about other things as well. I found the video thought-provoking, and I hope you did too – at some point the internet will no longer be benign (if it ever was). Are you ready for that time? Have you thought about how you can gather hard copies of information for later use? Will you  be relying on online preparedness information when a crisis comes? Time to start buying books (if for no other reason than they haven’t figured out a way to retro-actively censor those!).

God Bless you
