While I sit idle ...


While I sit idle …

 

I used to go to BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) a weekly (using the school calendar – so no summers or holidays) international Bible study for women.  They do a series, every year a different study for I think 8 different in-depth studies.  I loved it.  I went with a friend – which helped me remain faithful …  I completed all of the studies – 8 years?

The leader at the time was Suzanne Matthews.  She was awesome and always enjoyable to hear and so well prepared.

Its been years since I went – I was looking up BSF on the internet to see if there were new classes available and saw a link which included her name.  She apparently no longer leads BSF, but has gone on to become an author, artist (took multiple art classes and now sells her art), she speaks at retreats, etc., and writes a blog, I haven’t read her full blog, just a little info on her, but it is at this link:   http://ctandthee.com/

 
As I read about her life changes, I was excited for her and her accomplishments, but then felt, wow, what have I done?


I have lots “to do” projects and ideas, I could create art and sell it – probably... maybe, my writing is not bad, but I have no desire for that, but I have lots of other ideas that I just don’t push forward on.
 

I have watched more TV in the past 3 years, than I have in my entire life. I have become a couch potato.  I could take 2 hour naps every Sat and Sun; I could stay in my PJs until noon, getting my house cleaned in a major productive day for me.  Ugh! I feel like a slug.
 

At any rate, I have got to get up off of my couch, and get back involved in some activities, so first, I want to get involved in a Bible Study and it just so happens BSF does have a new study this year on Revelations, so I have sent an email and requested to start the class this fall or be put on the waiting list at least.

THE MAJORITY HAS NEVER BEEN RIGHT BY STEVE FINNELL

When the subject of Christianity has been debated the majority has never been right.

The majority of first century Jews rejected Jesus as the messiah.---The majority has never been right.

John 4:25, 26 The woman said to Him. "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things."
26 Jesus said to her. "I who speak to you am He."(NKJV)

The majority of world rejects Jesus as the only Savior.---The majority has never been right.

Acts 4:10-12 ...the name of Jesus Christ.....12 "Nor is there no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."(NKJV)

The majority of those who claim to be Christians believe the false doctrine of original sin. They believe that because Adam and Eve sinned that all men are guilty of spiritual sin at birth. They believe in inherited sin.---The majority has never been right.

Ezekiel 18:20 "The soul that sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself. (NKJV)

No man has inherited the guilt of Adam. Men will face spiritual death because of their own sins.

Romans 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned---(NKJV)

Death spread to all men because all men have sinned.

The majority of those who claim Jesus as Savior believe that modes of water baptism are sprinkling and pouring---The majority has never been right.

Mark 16:16 Whoever trusts and is immersed will be saved; whoever does not trust will be condemned. (Complete Jewish Bible)
Mark 16:16 He who has believed, and has been immersed, will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (The Better Version of the New Testament by Chester Estes)

There are no translations that translate Mark 16:16 as such, "He who believes and has been sprinkled or poured shall be saved."---The majority has never been right.

The majority of Baptist believe that water baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins and that once you are saved you can never be lost---The majority of Baptists have never been right.

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)
Galatians 5:1-4.....you have fallen from grace.(NKJV)

The majority of those who claim to be Christian believe that their church denomination is the final authority when it comes to faith and practice of the Christian faith---The majority has never been right.

The word of God found in the Bible and the Bible alone is not only the final authority, but the only authority for mankind.

THE MAJORITY WILL NOT BE GOING TO HEAVEN

Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.(NKJV)

If the majority were always right there would be many who find life eternal, however---The majority has never been right.

Luke 13:23-24 Then one said to Him, "Lord, are there few who are saved?" And He said to them, 24 "Strive to enter the narrow gate for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.(NKJV)
