There Are So Many Colors in….God?

Jesus Christ is, was, always will be God. He lived a sinless life, and then offered Himself as a propitiation for my sin by dying the death I should have died. He was declared with power to be the Son of God by His resurrection. He has ascended into heaven; but He’ll be back. To be His child one turns from sin and trusts Christ and the gospel alone.

Those statements are nonnegotiable. They are in the die-on-this-mountain category.

Tongues are not for today. Tongues are for today. Once saved, always saved. One can lose (or give away) salvation. This is the correct mode of water baptism; no, this is…Pre-trib, post-trib, mid-trib, don’t give a trib etc etc etc

The statements in the paragraph above are not…at least to me…die-on-this-mountain stuff.

Neither is how to study the Bible. Neither is what style of music is “acceptable.” Neither is translation preference. ad nauseum.

But..oh…we who claim the Name of Christ certainly can at least make it appear that comparatively trivial things are vital…and if you don’t concur with me on topic a or topic b then you are at best wrong, at worst heretical.

Please.

As culture deteriorates, we who follow Christ are going to have to hold hands with other Christ-followers though we may not see eye-to-eye on “secondary” issues.

It’s going to get increasingly lonely to love, serve, and honor the Lord.

We really do, we really do, we really do, need each other.

And we need to recognize the message of this song:

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
