REDUCED CHRISTIANITY

There was assignment of that title at Antioch as the disciples were teaching about the resurrected Christ.  They were there for at least a year. (Acts 11:26)  It is interesting to note that they taught “considerable numbers”.  People are not always favorable to the teachings concerning Christ, because it places demands on them concerning theirContinue reading “REDUCED CHRISTIANITY”

A NEW NAME

The Government (in Bermuda) is planning to rename Corkscrew Hill and the Sports Stadium in honour of our Olympian Champion, Flora Duffy. This is in keeping with the policy of recent years, when various other locations have been renamed in recognition of heroes and heroines of the past… a fitting tribute to those who haveContinue reading “A NEW NAME”

THE ‘NEW’ VOCABULARY

A friend was delighted to tell me that she and her sister have ‘Safe Keys’ so they are able to dine inside a restaurant rather than eat at an outside table or take the meal home.  How phrases have changed their meaning! Until recently, ‘Safe Key’ meant ‘key to the safe’ where money or documents wereContinue reading “THE ‘NEW’ VOCABULARY”

RECONCILIATION

Individuals have their “hurts” that need healing, but reaction has replaced response, and we are revealing more and more of the “old-nature”, of which the Scriptures teaches us is inherited at birth. The Apostle reminds the Ephesian believers of the bitterness that existed between those Gentiles, referred to as the “Uncircumcision”, whose identity related toContinue reading “RECONCILIATION”

WRONG DIRECTION

When you read what he said to the Lord in 4: l and following, “But it greatly displeased Jonah and he became angry.  He prayed to the Lord and said, ‘Please Lord, was not this what I said while I was still in my own country?  Therefore in order to forestall this I fled toContinue reading “WRONG DIRECTION”

QUICKIE LICKITY

These, in all probability, catch more attention than long, drawn out dissertations.  Of course some individuals are really not interested in what another says on any given subject.  I must illustrate:  From Psalm 103—“He has not dealt with us according to our sin, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.  For as high as theContinue reading “QUICKIE LICKITY”
