"100% Grace. 100% Faith. 100% Works"...

100When it comes to the great divide that exists among Christians on these three critical topics, it seems we want to wrestle over degrees, percentages and balances. It is as if we have three columns in our lives, and we keep pushing pennies between them to keep the scale from tipping too strongly in one direction or another. Not only is that a lot of work, it is not very assuring and is wholly unnecessary. At the same time, some want to push all the pennies in one column and deem the other(s) unnecessary or not as important. This is simply not an option in light of the sum total of God’s word.

Salvation, whether considered in the immediate sense of forgiveness of a sin (cf. Acts 8:20-24, et al) or in the larger sense of eternal life as a result of the forgiveness of all of our sins (cf. Heb. 5:9; 9:28, et al), is never a balancing act. Neither is it a juggling act. It requires all three elements—grace, faith and works—in absolute and complete values. Consider the following three passages (a small sampling among many that could have been chosen to make this point)…

“…even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:5-10)

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.” (Heb. 11:6-7)

“What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?” (Jas. 2:14).

It is when we try to emphasize one element over the other(s) that problems arise, both in our lives and in our doctrine.

Does Ignorance Equal Innocence?

heads sandIn our country there is the understanding that ignorance of the law is not justification for violating it. No judge that I've ever seen or heard allows the "ignorance of the law defense" as a justifiable defense in a courtroom. Why, because every citizen is responsible for knowing the laws of his state, county or municipality. When it comes to the Scriptures, there are many who believe that Biblical ignorance equates spiritual innocence. This idea is utilized often in the area of marriage, divorce and re-marriage, although attempts are made to justify this in other area's as well. The premise goes something to the effect, that because people were not aware of God's law regarding a specific subject or better stated a sinful practice, God will not hold them accountable to that sin, and as a result are allowed to remain in that sinful practice and retain the fruits of it.

Harvest Time

corrupt harvest 1This has been an interesting year to say the least. We are witnessing a substantial change in the fabric and structure or our American government, society and culture. This change has been appalling to say the least to many and intolerable to most. The subject of homosexual marriage is perhaps the greatest indicator of the sift in the mindset of the American ideal. “Religious people” are up in arms and deeply concerned as to the plight and future of this great country. As Christians, (in the strictest Biblical sense) we must be conscience of this change, but not to the point of hopeless dismay. You see, we realize that there is nothing new under the sun (Eccl 1:9-10). We realize that the root of this change is what it has always been; sin (Rom 5:12). You see, the change or changes we are witnessing are not really due to a shift in public opinion, policy, politics, government structure, constitutional amendments, or poor leadership e.g. (President Obama or the Democratic Party) but is a result of a world of ungodly people under the sway and influence of the prince of this world, Satan (Eph 2:2).

True Bullies

bully There has been a great emphasis placed on the subject of bullying in the last few years. A bully is defined by Webster’s as a person who uses strength and power to harm or influence someone. Bullying is using superior strength or influence to intimidate someone, typically to force an individual or group to do what one wants. As I write this article, I am reminded of Paul’s inspired words to the Corinthians, warning them that ignorance of Satan’s devices will allow him to have an advantage over us (2 Corinthians 2:8-11). We must not take his influence or methods for granted; ever.
