So, where are we going?

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 10th April 2014 in Judgement | judgement, hell, Revelations, Jesus, Great White Throne
...ssess the law, do instinctively what the law requires, these, though not having the law, are a law to themselves. They show that what the law requires is written on their hearts, to which their own conscience also bears witness; and their conflicting thoughts will accuse or perhaps excuse them on the day when, according to my gospel, God, through Jesus Christ, will judge the secret thoughts of all. This is in line with Revelation's depiction of judgment as God looks at their deeds in his books, he sees everything we've ever said and done, and even then some deeds and thoughts may "excuse them" on the day of judgement. I feel confident in God's justice here t...
 

New Covenant Israel is no longer physical (nor literal)!

...y the new law, observe these practices,—the old law being obliterated, the coming of whose abolition the action itself demonstrates. . . . Therefore, as we have shown above that the coming cessation of the old law and of the carnal circumcision was declared, so, too, the observance of the new law and the spiritual circumcision has shone out into the voluntary observances of peace.” (Source: Wikipedia) I'm not quite sure how you can come to a conclusion other than that physical Israel is of no consequence when Paul writes things like this to the church in Rome: Romans 9:6-8 It is not as though the word of God had failed. For not all Israe...
 

Lent: Day 6 - Ignatius to the Magnesians

Posted by Luke J. Wilson on 7th March 2017 in Lent | Lent,great lent,fasting,early church fathers,devotional,daily reading,Ignatius,Ignatius of Antioch: Letter to the Magnesians
...he Jewish law,” Ignatius says, “we acknowledge that we have not received grace”, which you can see is a statement echoing Paul’s sentiments throughout his letters to the churches – “you are not under law, but under grace” as he wrote in Romans 6:14 (and Rom 7:4,6; Gal 4:21 etc). This whole chapter is pretty much a short summary of Paul’s teaching on the law and how we Christians are no longer bound by it; "You who want to be justified by the law have cut yourselves off from Christ; you have fallen away from grace" (Gal 5:4), or as Ignatius phrases it, "it is absurd to profess Christ Jesus, and to Judaize" – the message is consistent, Christia...
 

Lent: Day 9 - Ignatius to the Philadelphians

...he Jewish law unto you, listen not to him” he urges, because if they do, Ignatius says, they are no better than “monuments and sepulchres of the dead” since they preach that which has passed away. He goes on to contrast the Old Testament with the New by saying that, “the priests indeed are good, but the High Priest is better” because “He is the door of the Father, by which enter in Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the prophets, and the apostles, and the Church”. Christ is now the way, and only way, to God the Father and as such they old ways of Judaism are no longer in effect. He emphasises this even more by pointing out that, “the Gospel pos...
 

Women should be silent?

...e, as the law also says. If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church. OK, so, same line of thinking here from Paul it would appear. But before you say "but this is a different situation!" - see how he begins: "As in all the churches of the saints" - ALL the churches. It would seem that this is speaking of the same type of situation as in 1 Timothy, yet this time it's only directed at the married (which the 1 Tim verse could also be, due to the Greek words). First thing though - "as the law also says": what law? Where is this in the Torah? Even if it is, why is Paul sudd...

...s and the law prophesied until John came; and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come.   Don’t miss the other important part of this verse: that “all the prophets and the law prophesied until John came” – ALL of the Scriptures prophesied until John came! This is it now, this is the end of the age; the end of the Old Covenant. Jesus was here to bring about the Kingdom and the New Covenant; to purify his people and bring judgement on those who refused him: the great and terrible day of the Lord!   "All the prophets and the law prophesied until John came" Tweet This! Not only is John the final prophet of the Old Covenant bri...
