The salvation Christ provided for every man, woman, and child is beyond ability to describe or comprehend. Believers in Christ are actually “heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.” (Rm.8:17) God has “blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” (Eph.1:3)
T H E S I S # 29
Jesus: Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. (Mt.12:34) The spiritual health of a christian can be determined by the number of times he speaks the name of Jesus. The spiritual health of a church can likewise be determined by the number of times they collectively speak the name of Jesus.
T H E S I S # 68
Jesus: Freely you have received, freely give. (Mt.10:8) Selling spiritual teachings, revelations, testimonies and songs in written, audio and video design is contrary to Matthew 10:8. Admittance fees to conferences, seminars and concerts are contrary to Matthew 10:8. Selling one’s christian service is contrary to Matthew 10:8.
T H E S I S # 73
The old covenant method of financing God’s work was the tithe. The new covenant method of financing the Lord’s work, how much to give and where to direct one’s giving, is submitting to the lordship of the Holy Spirit. There is no New Testament example of a christian tithing or being admonished to tithe.
T H E S I S # 95
A non-christian becomes a christian by embracing Christ into his/her life, and accepting Christ’s cross as payment for his salvation. This is done in prayer. Embracing Christ is submitting to Christ. Submitting to Christ is submitting to the Bible (as one is progressively enlightened to understand it).
