That’s Interesting

I’ve heard Rabbis tell stories of how the ancient Jewish wedding parallels the story of Christ. Nobody knows the time of the wedding but the Father. I’ve heard Rick Renner create an elaborate background story of how women could not be seen or speak in public in historic Israel – causing Paul to write the commandment of 1 Corinthians 14:34-35, just to explain away its modern applicability.

What I want you to realize is — interesting doesn’t necessarily mean the truth. They say Jesus’ Jewish name was Yeshua. I say show me the proof. Show me any ancient text where Jesus is called Yeshua.

As Christians we are to question what we hear and verify it. And that means being familiar with the Holy Bible. The Holy Bible King James Version is 100% truth. Anything else we need to take with a grain of salt and ask:

Is it true?

Where’s your proof?

Question everything superfluous to the Holy Bible KJV. It may be interesting, but is it true and if so how will I let it personally affect my own beliefs and values?

Show and Tell

I’ve heard people say that the God of the Old Testament isn’t the same as the God of the New Testament.

Is there a difference? And what is it?

I think the difference is this: In the Old Testament God told us what to do. In the New Testament he asks us to follow his will and he even provided us with an example to show us the way.

Hebrews 4:14-16 KJV
Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. [15] For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. [16] Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
