Jesus – The De-motivational Speaker

Jesus – The De-motivational Speaker | Gospel resources | Scoop.it
Americans love the vicarious sense of pride they get from the odds-defying underdog myth. But often, all the attaboy-ing translates to spiritual performance and a definition of sin that is closer to good intentions gone awry than war against the maker of the universe. Old habits die hard, and roughly 500 years ago Martin Luther saw a similar self-congratulating theology and dissected it with uniform precision...

Saint Francis... A Sissy ?

Saint Francis... A Sissy ? | Gospel resources | Scoop.it
One hundred and fifty thousand children had been on the brink of starving to death, but thanks to the kind gift of a very generous billionaire, every child now had enough food to keep him alive. That gift had arrived in the form of one big check. The horror was now over. It was finished. It was just a matter of distributing the food using the few relief workers we had. Without them to get the food to the children, there would have been many more deaths...

Sin and Salvation

Sin and Salvation | Gospel resources | Scoop.it
As to our doctrinal beliefs at Setting Captives Free, we do not believe that anyone can lose their salvation. We believe in the biblical doctrine of perseverance of the saints; that is, Jesus will not lose one that the Father has given Him (John 10:28-29), and we who are Christ's will persevere to the very end (1 Timothy 4:16). It is a great comfort to know that we are, indeed, held in God's hand and cannot be taken out (John 10:29) or separated from His love (Romans 8:39) because we were chosen before the foundation of the world by Him (Ephesians 1:4)...

Free Indeed Vs. "Working the Program"

Free Indeed Vs. "Working the Program" | Gospel resources | Scoop.it
"If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed" (John 8:36).

Many groups that work in the area of addiction instruct the addict who is attending a 12-step program on his/her need to continue to "work the program" as they learn new behaviors and habit patterns. The encouragement of other individuals and the support of the group as the addict is in the process of change, are cited to be necessary ingredients to remaining sober from whatever particular addiction one has...

12-Step Theology

12-Step Theology | Gospel resources | Scoop.it
I was once told by a secular authority that AA's 12 steps were based upon St. Augustine's Confessions. Being totally unfamiliar with AA, I believed him and, in my mind, this gave AA credibility. If Augustine didn't know about God's grace, who did? And, if they were basing their program upon his description of his bondage to and then liberation from sexual sin, shouldn't it be sound? I foolishly repeated this "fact" to others, as well...

Infusion vs. Imputation: A Nasty Case of Spiritual Navel-Gazing | Gospel resources | Scoop.it
There’s a bumper sticker that frequently catches my eye when I go for a walk near my office. On the back of a white Geo Metro is plastered this nice tidbit of wisdom: “If what you seek you find not within, you will never find it without.”

Three Wise Fools

Three Wise Fools | Gospel resources | Scoop.it
There were once three men who considered that they were very wise. They lived in a country that had only just been introduced to electricity.

One dark night, the men were invited by Edison Electric to see a demonstration of electrical power, because it was well-known that the three of them were skeptics when it came to electricity being a reality. The reason they denied its existence was because they didn't believe in anything that could not be seen. These men were rationalists, and electricity was said to be invisible. They refused to believe in something that couldn't be scientifically demonstrated...

Condemnation of Sin

Condemnation of Sin | Gospel resources | Scoop.it
Dear friend,

Is it wrong for us to feel condemnation if we overindulge in any lifestyle, such as in our eating habits? Isn't it Satan who condemns us, and aren't we free from condemnation in Christ?

John Smith, one of our mentors at Setting Captives Free, has written a very helpful explanation of these things. I hope you will benefit from reading it, as I did...
