How far do we go with this?



We shall not go far!!!! Talk about a red –herring – a digression!
Of course, this stilted mindset, which has often befallen the church, is hardly going to solve our societal issues as addressed in “Moralization of Attachment” above.

Major on the majors regarding moral formation (ex relationship) and the smaller details, like fashion, will fall in line. One will make personal choices according to love for others (respect, edification, etc).

 Re:

Living by law is certainly not the full Gospel. But it is better than living by cheap grace where you say 'this is how I will be a sinner and Jesus will accept me'. This is not true grace. True grace will make you more Christ like every day. The sad news among today's so called believers is they believe in either such cheap grace and continue living in sin or they go to other extreme of Legalism.

that is legalism. Zac poonen in this artcile tasks about a church that is liberal and never preached sin and another church that is legalist and focuses only on external purity. They both are wrong and the truth is not in them.

 Re: Ray Comfort's Contribution to the Body of Christ

For decades many churches have been focusing on being seeker-sensitive, being politically correct, and trying their best not to offend anyone with certain truths of Scripture. Rick Warren and Joel Osteen and their churches are examples of this type.

Many churches have also been promoting a “social justice gospel”, focusing primarily on meeting temporal needs, while avoiding sharing the everlasting gospel with the lost.

Many have also focused on promoting political agendas in the place of proclaiming the gospel.

We can see the effects of all of this all around us today in Christendom, as many who attend churches on Sundays are put to sleep spiritually by messages that only tickle their ears.

Even in many churches which seem to have some “sound doctrine”, we do not hear much preaching on the themes of righteousness, self-control, and the coming judgment (Acts 24:25).

Many churches do have some good biblical teaching which promotes some spiritual growth in the lives of Christians. But when it comes to evangelizing the lost and exhorting in the above-mentioned themes, they are very much lacking. When it comes to that area, they preach a watered down, cheap grace, “sinner’s prayer gospel” which has helped create multitudes of false converts.

So in this day and age of great apostasy from God’s Word, and of much confusion in the area of evangelism, I believe God has used Ray’s ministry as a beacon of light and a wake up call to the Body of Christ at large.

Many of us who regularly evangelize see Ray’s ministry as a good foundation for biblical evangelism. From that foundation we expand our preaching to the lost. So whether it is using the Ten Commandments from Exodus 20, expounding on them as our Lord did on the Sermon on the mount; or using the lists of sins in 1Cor.6:9-10 and Gal.5:19-21, we see the importance of preaching on sin, righteousness and the judgment to come.

At the same time, we also understand that the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ are the main themes of the gospel message. Yet we see sometimes in Scripture that our Lord and the apostles and disciples were careful not to give those precious jewels of the gospel to dogs or swine (Matt.7:6).

Like Paul, we want to be innocent of the blood of all men and be found faithful in declaring the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27-28).

In case anyone is not that familiar with Ray’s ministry, here are some links:

perfect balance!

Another interesting point.

The word "love" or "charity" does not appear at all in the book of Acts. In all the sermons in Acts these two words do not appear. Now of course love is all throughout the book of Acts but it is in action.

 Re:

Incorporating the Law…

by The Daily Evidence- Ray Comfort

"Incorporating the Law into the gospel presentation does many things. It primarily brings the knowledge of sin (see Rom. 7:7), showing the sinner that he is a criminal and that God is his Judge.
The Law (in the hand of the Holy Spirit) stops his mouth of justification and leaves him guilty before God (see Rom. 3:19,20). It reveals that he deserves nothing but judgment for his crimes. Like a faithful prosecutor, the Law of God points its accusing finger, and so the sinner’s stirred conscience bears witness and likewise points its finger at the criminal (see Rom. 2:15).

The verdict is “guilty,” and the condemnation is just.

I do my best to put him in the courtroom on the Day of Judgment, with the hope that he will understand the mercy that God offers him in Christ.
