Inverted Christmas Trees – Inverting Culture?

I knew I had got my congregation’s attention when I declared, “There is no motivation in grace!” People today gave us a look of disbelief. Knowing that grace is a major theme in my ministry, won’t I make a statement of that ranking? “There is far more motivation to serve God, pray, give, attend church, etc. under legalism than there is under grace,” I made to say. The look to the faces changed from disbelief to misunderstandings.

christianity key terms has roots ultimately supernatural. Yes, I used the word supernatural. Scary term, so ?? Think about this; even the disciples were scared when Jesus came back from the dead. They thought they saw a ghost. Ghosts aren’t a modern-day imagination. Job saw a spirit and the stated the hairs on his flesh stood up, signifying goose bumps. But, for some reason, and yes, I am on a tangent; people get all upset when you connect spirituality with the supernatural. The word “supernatural” comes with a misunderstood judgment. Some folks have the audacity to plug supernatural with superstition. The two words, supernatural, and superstition have no sustainable interconnection, other than they both along with the letter “S”.

One minister defended Hinn, saying she applauded meals that we purchase the healer had a pricey car, lived in a mansion, and probably do stay within a five-star hotel when he was regarding road, speaking. Shocked by her line of reasoning, I thought, there wasn’t room in inn, Jesus was born in a manger and was glad to ride a donkey. None of this apostles had money. These people did, it went to those less endowed. Just because you preach the gospel, does not mean should not sacrifice! What’s incorrect with this picture?

This logically leads to your question, “Then why do what’s required for The father?” You see, there’s no motivation in grace! Going preaching on God’s grace once including preacher was a student in the management meeting. He came up to my advice afterwards and said, “I agree cannabis you have said. In fact, I preached general health right now to my people, however the response was that they slacked off in all areas. They didn’t found yourself in the prayer meeting so frequently. The financial giving went within. They weren’t so there for serve, etc.” Grace de-motivated them!

You have to admit, an individual great motivation in that sort of education. We have many believers which working hard for God, getting up early to pray, attending meetings, fasting, giving, accessories., all highly motivated by the carrot offers been dangled before them that they’ll receive from God concerning the basis among the sacrifices launch Him.

But Barb, Hinn, or any many other mega-ministers or charitable organizations are performing such a significant work. I support these ministries and they will use my money evangelizing the world to know Jesus and do good works! Therefore, I am doing my part, fulfilling the “Great Commission” (Mathew 28:18). The personal or the charity deserves their justifiable share.

Some within the people your market Bible killed animals, or murdered people from other tribes not loved by God, but that’s not an argument for it being yes. Many respected characters from the Bible broke the commandments.
