The Greatness of Jesus Proven By His Enemies: Part One

The Reaction of Others

One can learn a lot about another individual based upon how people react to him or her. This is true of those who are friends of such a person and is also true of those who are enemies of such a person. Those who stand as enemies of a person will usually point out flaws – his or her weaknesses, his or her negative aspects, etc. The same is true concerning Jesus Christ and His enemies.

Great Commission

A Famous Farewell And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”Mat.

Liberty or License?

Annual Celebration

This week we will again celebrate the founding of our nation and its great blessing of personal liberty. This nation has truly been a great blessing from God and is likely the most free nation in the history of mankind. However, no matter how wondrous our nation is, it is of course imperfect in comparison with the perfect law of liberty (James 1:25). Both of these laws focus upon the concept of freedom, our nation promoting political freedom, and the Law of Christ bringing freedom from sin.

Dealing With Stress

A Stressful Life

There are many causes of stress in life. Our lifestyles, jobs, family issues, health concerns, and other various factors contribute to a life filled with stress. As if the stress itself were not enough, the effects of stress on one’s health in all forms (including physical, emotional and spiritual) must be considered in the great danger excessive stress places upon one’s life. The ideal answer to such a problem would be a life without stress, a life without concern or conflict. Such a world is a utopia, however, and to desire for such a world is unrealistic in our fallen world.

Useful Idiots

An Old Adage

During the rise of the Soviet Union and its growth to a world superpower, a term came into existence which has entered into modern political jargon. The term was “useful idiot” and it has been attributed (though not proven) to Lenin, and later to Stalin of the Soviet regime describing a Westerner who was sympathetic to communism.
