Have a Blessed Easter

Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?  But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.  Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.  If in the this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. I Corinthians 15:12-19

What’s New?

THE “NEW” CHRISTIANS.

Fill-in-the-blank Bible

If you take the Word at its word, it is God’s Word. Because it is God’s Word, it is truth (John 17:17), it is inerrant (John 10:35), it is sufficient for every Christian need (2 Timothy 3:15-17). Are you a real disciple ofJesus? The way you treat the Bible tells the tale (John 8:31-32). It is the end result of a long, deliberate process (Hebrews 1:1-2), done through men moved by the Holy Spirit who wrote out God’s self-revelation, rather than products of their own will (2 Peter 1:20-21).

And it’s markedly complete. No essential God-breathed book has been found that antedates Genesis, nor any that post-dates Revelation. The whole vital, need-to-know story and all the details are there: God, man, the universe, the meaning of life and everything. How it all started, how it all ends, what we’re to be believing and doing (and not believing nor doing) in the meanwhile.

And there’s so much of it. Sixty-six books chock-full of revelation. So much that most professing Christians (to our shame) have never even read it all.

In the light of that, what explains a movement that in effect trivializes it all? (emphasis mine)

There’s no point in reinventing the wheel on this issue. Pyromaniac’s lively post is much more interesting to read than anything I could have come up with anyway. 🙂 Full Post Here   Plus, another excellent post at Four Simpsons!
