What Did Jesus Say About……?

May 20th, 2012

It’s interesting to see people misquote Jesus who claim to be Christian. What’s not interesting is to see the millions of biblically illiterate folks follow along with them without even once opening their bible to see if what was said was:

1.  Actually in the Bible

2. Actually said by Jesus

3. Said in the same context as they mean it

4. Means the same thing as they mean.

So, this series is going to start off pretty simple and straightforward. The words of Jesus on particular topics that people say ‘Jesus never said anything about that’.  We’re also going to see if the rest of scripture agrees with this or if the apostles introduce something ‘new’ to the mix along the way (for the benefit of our ‘red letter Bible’ friends who think the only things that matter in the NT are the words of Jesus).

So here’s my basic topic list – What Did Jesus Say About (WDJSA):

  1. Who He is
  2. Repentance and Faith
  3. Homosexuality, Marriage, Adultery and Pre-marital Sex
  4. The Bible
  5. The Poor
  6. Election and Predestination
  7. Education
  8. Parenting
  9. Hell
  10. Heaven
  11. Church Leadership
  12. Social Justice

I’m more than willing to expand the list, so feel free to add some possible topics in the comments below or on Facebook.

*edit: Just added a few more to the list.

Harold Camping Repents…it seems.

November 3rd, 2011

Harold Camping – one stroke, two bad teachings and three failed prophecies later, has apologized for his rapture predictions.– shortcut to the article on the Christian Post. I also did a quick video on the topic:

So yeah.  I hope to see him come forward and disavow more stuff.

But part of me is still carefully reading that….is it just me or does it seem like he’s left some ‘open forum’ to come back with another prediction later ?

Pray his repentance is genuine and that more good fruit will follow from it (more repentance).
