What Do You Believe?

…pre-mil? post-mil? a-mil? no-mil? pan-mil? calvanist, arminian, anti-calv… speak in tongues… don’t speak in tongues… immersion, dipping, sprinkling, etc, etc, etc…..
I can relate well with Jim’s words here. Good grief, what a mess we can make! Fortunately, he gives us a great resolution to the problem. You’ll really want to take a moment and let this one work its way in! Thanks, Jim

Not For Itching Ears

As I have grown in my relationship with Christ, I have had ample opportunity to define and re-define what it is I believe about Christianity. Over the years, my list has become shorter rather than longer. It is not because I don’t hold strong beliefs in other area’s, because I do. I simply hold these views to be non-essential to the Christian faith. For too long, we have allowed our in-house theological disagreements over these non-essential matters to divide Christ’s body and dishonor Christ’s name.

  1. The list of things I believe about God and the Christian life would be endless. Most are not essential, but are matters than can be respectfully debated (not argued) and studied. I know what I believe, but I remain open to other views on subjects which are not clearly defined in Scripture.

    I stand firmly, however, on the total inerrancy of the Scriptures, the total efficacy of the blood of Christ and the total supremacy of the living God. All other beliefs are dependent on those three.

    It’s good to see the Nicene Creed displayed on your page. I grew up reciting the creed and I am thankful for the benefit of having an encapsulated profession of faith firmly planted in my mind.

      It’s interesting you caught that Mrs. C! I just mentioned in a comment the other day how little attention is paid to our sidebars. It’s also very interesting that you grew up reciting this creed. While I grew up in church and a Christian home, there was nothing like this commonly presented. After reading J. I. Packer’s ‘Grounded in the Gospel,’ I firmly believe in its necessity. It simply keeps us focused on ‘first things first.’ – – – the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thanks for that neat piece of info.
