Like the Isthmian Games that the apostle Paul culturally alluded to when writing to Christians at Corinth, so too are the comparisons between our modern Olympic Games to our walk in Christ.
We know God is “all knowing” (omniscient), but what’s infinitely more amazing (if we can comprehend such) is how precious we are to Him. This is the amazing hymn of Psalm 139!
Addiction in the Lord’s church? Oh yes (isn’t that why saved people need saving to begin with?), and it will destroy not only the addicted Christian but so many others as well…unless you (re)turn to Jesus.
Leaders who are like the Scribes, Elders and Pharisees that Jesus both challenged and corrected are not the people we should typically seek out. In fact, we should beware of these type of people (Mark 12:38) and seek out the common person who is much more likely to receive the words of our Savior.
In the first of two parts, and focusing on the Old Testament, we look at simple but effective evidence demonstrating that the Bible really is inspired by God.
