  • God's Love And His Law...themes first John pt 6

    By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.( I John 5:2-3)The Apostle John wrote an epistle to restore the faith of those who had been ravaged by the distorted spirituality of the gnostics. As part of the cure, he declared three statements about the nature of the only true God; God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all, God is Love, and finally, Jesus Christ has come (and...
  • Unhitching You From Andy Stanley

    Andy Stanley’s sermon series called "Aftermath" makes many foundational errors regarding the historical, Catholic Christian faith. Since Andy wants the end of the story without the beginning, we too started at the end and will go back to the beginning. We begin our 3 part response with his sermon "Not Difficult,” where Andy seeks to make the case that Christianity needs to be “unhitched” from the Old Testament.
  • The Hebrew B'rit Chadashah / New Covenant

    The Hebrew B'rit Chadashah / New Covenant Some believe that the New Covenant was originally written in Greek, this view is incorrect. The Hebrew language was never a dead language and this view shows great ignorance of Jewish life in general and Chanukah in particular. Jeremiah 16:19 O YHVH my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit. Oh my, thatÂ’s why! We have inherited lies, vanity...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– A Colorado Springs man was arrested after police believe he left racist messages outside a church. Vincent Broughton, 44, who is black, is facing charges for committed a bias-motivated crime and disorderly conduct. The signs were posted outside the New Covenant church that is predominately attended by African Americans. One sign references the KKK. Another reads, “Black men beware, you are the target.” The messages had the congregation on edge. “We locked our doors this morning, so we were inside, but it shouldn’t be that way. You shouldn’t have to lock your doors in the church,...

    Mary, the Ark of the New Covenant By: Steve Ray Why do Catholics call Mary the Ark of the New Covenant? Answering that question will take us on a thrilling journey through the Old and New Testaments.For example, Luke wove some marvelous things into his Gospel that only a knowledgeable Jew would have understood—a Jew who knew Jewish Scripture and had eyes to see and ears to hear. One of the things he would have understood is typology.We all know that the Old Testament is full of stories, people, and historical events. A type is a person, thing, or...
  • Beware This Universal Standard

    A few days ago an established writer wrote on a Christian website and used the Genesis passage to discourage any Christian who would say God was mad at Haiti, and encouraged Christians to “get out of the prophet business”. Please don’t misunderstand me, I don’t believe God did it and I don’t believe God is mad at Haiti. I believe God poured out His wrath on His Son while he was on the cross and he is not mad at mankind, but I do know He allowed it because it happened.
  • Clinton Comeback (These people need help)

    Clinton declared his political comeback Wednesday with a set-piece speech that is aimed, according to his aides, at framing his governing philosophy in the context of the 2006 elections. Clinton’s goal: to show why his philosophy works, and why Bush’s doesn’t. Clinton, of course, doesn’t cite Bush’s name. But he hardly pulls his punches against what he calls “the leadership in Washington today.” In theory, Wednesday’s speech marked the 15th anniversary of Clinton’s “new covenant” speech at Georgetown University. In practice, it marked a reinventing of Clinton’s themes—three weeks before the congressional elections—for today’s problems.

    THE FOURTH CUP Scott Hahn The Sacrament of the EucharistI'd like to cover a lot, and I'd like to tell you in advance what I'm going to tell you. I'd like to move from one to another to a third area. The first area I'd like to focus on is how it is that Christ in the Last Supper and in the Eucharist offers himself up as the new covenant Passover, and how the Eucharist and the Old Testament Passover are in a sense two sides of the same coin. The second focus of our time will be on...

    DISPENSATIONALISM AND THE NEW COVENANT Stephen M. Johnson Old Testament Biblical Theology -- Dr. O. Palmer Robertson Westminster Theological Seminary, 1979 Jeremiah 31:31-34 speaks of a future new covenant with "the house of Israel and the house of Judah," which gives glorious promises. This text is quoted in Romans 11 and both the 8th and 10th chapters of Hebrews. Furthermore, of the thirty three uses of the term diatheke in the New Testament, as many as fifteen are references to a new covenant.[1] Paul calls himself a minister of the new covenant. The wine, or cup of the Lord's Supper...
  • The New Covenant Standard

    The meat of the new covenant can only be understood in the light of our place in God's history of man.. It requires an understanding of the different expectations the Apostles had concerning the second coming. Here is my take on our new standard. Hebrews 2:14 Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same nature, that through death he might destroy him who has the power of death, that is, the devil, 15and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong bondage. This had not happened yet as...
