Real Relevance

Christians of the last generation seemed to want the world to look at them and say, ?Look how politically influential they are. We?d better respect them.? I?m afraid too many in our generation want the world to look at Christians and say, ?Look how cool they are. They?re not that different than we are. Maybe we should like them and listen to them.? Yet Christians in the early Church didn?t strive for either of these things. The world looked at them and said, ?Look how they love one another. They?re so different from the rest of us. How could this dead man named Jesus give them such hope?? Now, there?s real relevance.

One Response to Real Relevance

  1. Hi Robert,

    I don’t call myself “reformed” but when Jesus Christ said ?it is finished”, I believe He meant it. In fact, anyone who says that the elect sinner has to meet a condition in order to be saved should take note of these biblical propositions:

    1.The righteousness of God that is revealed in the gospel is His salvation of sinners based on the propitiatory sacrifice and imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ alone (Rms 3:21-4:8; 10:4; 2 Cor 5:21).

    2.Those who are ignorant of the righteousness of God revealed in the gospel are going about to establish a righteousness of their own and are thus lost, no matter how zealous they are for God (Romans 10:1-3).

    3.Anyone who does not abide in the doctrine of Christ is lost (2 Jn 9).

    4.Anyone who speaks peace to one who brings a false gospel is lost (2 Jn 11)

    Robert, I’d be interested to know what you think of our website.
