Hiring a Christian Contractor

Hiring a Christian Contractor Let’s just say that you belong to a church, and there are a few contractors that everyone uses at the church. These contractors are nice people and you know them to be generous and giving Christians. You’re thinking about doing some work to your home and are entertaining the thought of actually hiring one of them. I would like to point something out here, that most Christians, might not realize. However, there are plenty of Christians that know this to be true. Not all Christians are honest. I know, that probably shocks a lot of people, but it’s actually true. When hiring a Christian contractor, don’t let the fact that they belong to your church and everyone loves them, become a determining factor on whether or not … Read entire article »

Christian Principles ? Christians and Unclean Language

Christian Principles ? Christians and Unclean Language A Christian friend, new to the faith and troubled by a foul tongue, asked me to prove that the bible condemned cursing. For the unlearned, this could be a difficult task. The bible does not specifically define what is unclean language. The everyday language of ancient people did not include the common gutter words of modern times. Thus the bible does not speak them by name. In this study of Christian principles, I will briefly address the Christian understanding of unclean language.   Before you continue reading, take a moment to prove to yourself through biblical evidence that cursing is a sin.      The Only Absolute Curse Words   Focusing on the actual collection of unclean words that are in use today, only one is specifically addressed in … Read entire article »

Baptism-Entering the Christian Life on our Conversion Journey

Baptism-Entering the Christian Life on our Conversion Journey Beginning with the Apostles’ Evangelization (hearing the “Good News” about Jesus), Conversion (coming to a belief in this person, Jesus, as the Savior) led persons to ask to be Baptized which they had heard was the way one became a Christian.  These adults were baptized, received first Eucharist and became full members of the Church.  As the first centuries passed, Christian adults began to ask that their children also be baptized soon after birth and before they had reached the “age of reason” when they were capable of making their own decision afterevangelization and conversion. This is the custom today in most Christian churches.  It has led to minimizing the power of Baptism and the impact it should have in our lives. … Read entire article »

Music in Christian Worship

Music in Christian Worship Copyright (c) 2010 Robert Hinchliffe The history of music in Christian worship is a substantial one which can trace its origins all the way back to pre-Christian times in the Old Testament. In those very early days we read of the Jewish people singing, playing instrumental music and even dancing. Such activity was widely used as a means of expressing faith. Music played an important role in many acts of celebration and worship. It was into that society that Jesus was born. Over the two thousand years since Christ’s life the use of music in Christian worship has gone through many phases and many musical idioms. It is really over the second of those two thousand years that church music, as we know it today, has developed. One … Read entire article »

Christian Authority

Christian Authority 1) There is only one source for true authority.True authority is linked to the omnipotence of God. Only an all-powerful God can truly dictate and be Sovereign over His creation. He has the power to command and the power to enforce, to reward and to punish. Jesus said not to fear him who can kill the body (and Satan does have some power and authority), but fear him who can kill the body and throw the real you into hell. Now that’s authority! Satan cannot do that. He himself will experience the lake of fire for his pride and insolence. So trueauthority flows from God and God alone. All authority that flows from God must be obeyed and submitted to. That includes the family, the government, man’s laws, … Read entire article »
