Persecution and the Believer Part 1

Reblogged from Pastor Jim’s blog. Continue to pray for the persecuted church in East Asia.

The Domain for Truth

Quick update to yesterday’s Pray for a Persecuted Church Right now: The authorities have let go of others but the four elders/pastors detained from this persecuted church have been punished and sent to jail for two weeks.  Updates will probably be delayed because of security concern.  This post is timely and relevant, as it is about what the Bible teaches about persecution and believers.

Establish the need: Have you thought about Christian persecution?

Purpose: Today we shall see four of eight truths the Bible teaches about Christians and persecutions so that you be strong in Christ when the time comes.

Pray for a Persecuted Church Right now

Prayer request from Pastor Jim: Please pray for a persecuted church in East Asia.

The Domain for Truth

Just received word that one of the churches I have taught overseas at this moment right now have all their members and elders/pastors detained and interrogated by authorities. I want to ask if you can pray for these persecuted Christians. This is very heavy for me to hear.

2020 and Proverbs 16:9

This is a great post from SlimJim’s blog, The Domain For Truth.

“A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.” – Proverbs 16:9

The Domain for Truth

I think at this point everyone can agree that 2020 is a crazy year (and that’s saying much since there’s so many things people disagree on).

About the Blogger Recognition Award (By Jyoti)

The Blogger Recognition Award is an award given in recognition of all the hard work that goes into creating a blog. It is a way for bloggers to support, motivate and promote other bloggers who have clearly put in huge amounts of time and effort, and produced valuable content.

Bloggers are very talented people – they work hard, they promote, market, advertise, run a busy site.

They organise all kinds of activities, they encourage, motivate, interact, engage and are community orientated. It matters not if they are shy and reticent or loud and personable – each actively progressive blogger is the same – they all work hard and passionately with their blogs, they put the hours in to deliver to their audience each day a welcoming location to read, absorb, learn and have fun.

To escape the hustle bustles of city life, or the begrudgeries of boredom – they entice readers to peruse their pages to look for entertainment.

That is what the BRA celebrates.

Problem of Suffering in light of Christ and Psalm 23

Psalm 23 is my favorite Psalm. This is an article by SlimJim about the connection between this Psalm and Mark 14. This Psalm is a great comfort for all Christians facing trouble in their lives. “The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want!”

The Domain for Truth

I have posted in the past “Chuck Norris Apologetics with the Problem of Evil.”  That post was about how the alleged problem of evil presupposes Christian theism.  In this present post I’m assuming what’s taught in that previous post.  Yet what is presented here is not just looking at the problem of evil in terms of suffering from another angle but should be joined with the first post as reinforcing a Christian treatment of theodicy.

Quick Spiritual DNA Test

This is one of the most important blog posts out there. Please read, and ask yourself, “Am I saved from my sins?”

The Domain for Truth

This is a serious and important post.

One of the most frightening passage from the Bible is what Jesus said:

Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [n]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

(Matthew 7:22-23)

The consequences of being a false Christian has too much at stake for eternity.

You want to make sure you really are a Christian.  You want to make sure you genuinely will be going to heaven.  Of course going to heaven is not by our own works, but the works of Christ.  But you got to have genuine trust in Christ’s person and work.  You need to be rooted in Christ.

How do you know you are rooted…

Forgiving Because of Christ

From SlimJim’s blog, The Domain For Truth, about forgiving…

The Domain for Truth

Forgiving is hard.  An English poet (Alexander Pope) once said “To err is human, to forgive divine.”  Certainly by our own power and in our flesh alone it is very hard to forgive.

I don’t listen to country.  But I found this song after listening to hymns on Youtube.  The song is called “The Preacher And The Stranger.”

Here are the lyrics:
