The Will of God (60 KB)
One would think that the most common questions asked by Christians would be about the meaning of certain passages of Scripture but the fact is that the questions most asked have to do with knowing the will of God for their life.
Being IN but not OF the World (46 KB)
The things of the world may be desired and possessed for the uses and purposes which God intended, and they are to be used by His grace, and to His glory; but believers must not seek or value them for those purposes to which sin abuses them. Yet these vanities are so alluring to the corruption in our hearts, that without constant watching and prayer, we cannot escape this ‘world’, or obtain victory over the god and prince of it.
What about Tithing? (53 KB)
Tithing is a very touchy subject; everyone has his own interpretation. From mega-churches that have a form of financial "extortion" requiring giving 10% to that church as a condition of membership. Prospective members must sign off on a contract and are interviewed regarding their lifestyle, including tithing. To those that argue that Jesus taught He came to "fulfil" the Law, which they believe occurred at His crucifixion, and therefore Christians are no longer obligated to pay a minimum amount, but should give only as God specifically directs them to do.
Unworthy Slaves of Christ (48 KB)
We are unprofitable servants, indeed unworthy Slaves. We have merited nothing, nor have we benefited God in any possible way. If He rewards us, it will be matter of unmerited favour, it is all of Grace (Eph 2:8), and we have added not a single iota to His Glory.
Love of Money (51 KB)
Most people quote (misquote) this passage as such: “Money is the root of all evil”, but what Scripture says here is that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil, NOT money. Money is not evil or good, it is neutral, the Love for it is the evil; in other words it is the GREED thereof that the Apostle is referring to.
Hallmark of Christians (59 KB)
There are many that claim to be Christians but the hallmark of authenticity is demonstrated by their fruit as stated by our Lord Jesus Christ: “from their fruits you shall know them” Paul himself encourage Christians to indeed check if they are real or fakes: “Examine yourselves, whether you be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know you not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except you be reprobates?” (2Co 13:5)
