Fresh update on "christ" discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"Right now we're talking about his new book, how about this for a title? Is the end near what Jesus told us about the last days. Michael youssef, my friend, welcome. Thank you so much. Glad to be with you. We have never lived at a time when asking the question is the end near is itself so startling because it's one thing to say, are we in the end times when we know we're in the end times? I think there's little doubt about that. The question now is where in the end times are we? What we're seeing is unprecedented in our lifetimes. So what do you say, doctor youssef in the new book is the end near? What is your observation? Well, it's not just unprecedented for our lifetime, as you know, I'm a little bit of an amateur historian, and I have looked through the annals of history, is there so many of the things that our lord Jesus Christ himself said about the nearness of the end as they're all come together now. And you know, you've known me for a long time, I am not what people who watch me around the world and in this country, and listen to me on radio. Then I'm not an in time preacher. There are some who are and specialize on it with the charts and gog and the my God. And I'm a get and you know, and that's fine. Don't forget it. Don't forget Henry Kissinger, arising as the Antichrist. Don't ever forget that one. Well, Hitler Mussolini, I mean, all those things have happened and go Butch off because of the mark on his forehead. You and I have seen all this. And so I did not get into any of this. I wanted to know what my lord Jesus Christ, the eternal son of God who coexisted with the father. Before all worlds said, when he was asked the question in Matthew 24, and he was asked the question, how do we know the end is near?.

What Friends and Family Do for Their Famous Friends

"So when driving through Colorado and the cocaine, we had a little bit less at that point as you can imagine. And it was in a baggie. And there we are on route 80. And a state trooper pulls behind us, and he's following us now. Now, like I said, we had God bless America taped to the back of the windshield. But still, a couple of dark skinned guys with Baldi's and a yorkie, driving through Colorado, that would be enough for a cop to at least follow us for a while. And he's been behind us for a good several miles now. He's not moving off our ants. That'll make you shit a brick when you're carrying a lot of dirty stuff. So suddenly Neil says to me, you know what, I think that I know there's a gas station and a car wash up here very soon. I've passed it and I've stopped here a number of times because gumballs made that drive before. That was my first trip. I said, wherever it is, bro, find it and let's go there. So he says, you know what? I'm going to point to the car wash. Hand me the code. I said, no, no, no, I got it. Just do what you got. He was hand me the Coke asshole. You're famous. You have a TV show. You can't hold this or you'll lose everything. You know what? He had a point. So I handed it to him. And he drives into the car wash, but before he stops the car, he says, go into the store and get us some sodas and get us some shit to eat some candy and meet me when I'm done with the car wash. This is sure. And wouldn't you know the cop pulls into the fucking car wash as well? And he stops right behind gumbo. But he isn't going to car wash. He stops and goes in the store. Now he's looking at me up and down and I got the dog in my hand. So after the wash, I hop back in the car and the cop is following us again. And I say, Jesus Christ deal it's curtains. I said, where is it? He says, don't worry. Just look straight ahead. I see where's the bad rose? Just don't fucking move. Just look straight ahead. Stay calm. A few minutes later, the cop puts his siren on. I'm thinking, we're fucking dead. We're going to jail in 9 11. And he speeds past us. Even gave us a little nod. Like, got to go, boys. I mean, I breathed a sigh of relief like you can't imagine. I go holy shit. All right, where's this stuff? Give it to me. He says, hold the wheel. And when I do, Neil leads to his left and fish is in the back of his pants and pulls the bag of Coke out of his crack. Now that's what Friends and family do for famous people. Okay? Sometimes fame isn't a bitch.

Rick Joyner Predicts What Will Happen in the Coming Years

"Rick, I just have to ask you because you've moved in the prophetic for a long time and in some ways that can be confusing. It's been to some extent confusing to me. What do you see happening in the years ahead? Or can you talk about that? Because so many people are wondering, what are the profits saying? How are they saying it? What is your sense of that? Well, first, I think we do have a situation where. Even in the New Testament, there were not many prophets. There were actually far more apostles than there were prophets. In the New Testament, and the real thing is rare. I think many are claiming to be any Christian Kim prophesy, by the way, we're talking Corinthians, but that doesn't make you a prophet. So I think we have many voices out there right now that may indeed someday mature into genuine prophetic ministry, but we also see in part and we know in part, nobody has the whole picture. So, you know, when he said the lord said name is that he would not do anything unless he revealed his secret counsel to his servants, the prophets that's plural, not just singular. They're supposed to be a fellowship in a an interchange, not with just profits with profits, but I believe prophetic people who have taken their right place in the body of Christ and relate to the whole body of Christ.

Sean Feucht Drops In After His Times Square 'Let Us Worship' Event

"Ladies and gentlemen Sean Foyt, Sean, I can't believe you are in the studio. In the flesh. Every time I've interviewed you on this program, you've been in a car on a hilltop in California. Right? Yeah. And you are in New York City. Welcome to New York, my friend. Thank you. I was just Alvin and I were just telling my audience our version of what happened last night. And it was so beautiful and a friend of mine, my wilkerson said, oh, and when the sun went down while we're worshiping, that was the beginning of Roche Shaun at the beginning of the Jewish new year. And I said, that was not planned. That was amazing. To be worshiping Jesus in the middle of Times Square. Publicly, beautifully. So last night we saw the film, the film super spread is fantastic. The only part I didn't like is my part. I'm in it folks. I apologize, you know what I mean? I was just very bullish. I was bloated and confused. But they put it in any way, because but Sean, just tell us, what happened yesterday? Man, it was wild. I mean, like you mentioned, you know, being in Times Square, the place where the ball drops, the place where the eyes of the world look at during new years. And we were there actually during the real new years. Is that not amazing? Yeah, it's so cool. And what was even more wild, I mean, there's so many different threads to weave, but when we first came in 2020 and we were on the West Coast and we were doing lettuce worship and of course, you know, people were, there was a narrative from the media that it was like this anti lockdown anti government protest. It wasn't that at all. It was just like, hey, we're The Church of Jesus Christ. We need to rise up. This is a dark time people are fearful. People are filled with, you know, this chaos is confusion, drug and alcohol use of skyrocketing, suicides, this guy rocketing, we need to worship. And so then when I had it in my heart, like we got to go to New York City. This is a city I love. I've been coming here since I was a kid, and when we showed up in Washington square park under the big arch, there was a policeman there, a chief of police that met me and he said, what are you guys doing here? And I said, well, you know, we're here to worship. And at that time, protesters had been raging through that park. And it was just a place of chaos and violence. And he said, well, we could use the church here.

"My program the aircraft attacks the show, but oddly enough, I am the hunted. I am the guest, and Albin is playing the role of host, asking me questions about my new book, letter to the American church. Good stuff. Good stuff. You know what I really like. Of course, it's the letter to the American church, so it's got some churchy stuff in there, like scripture verses. I was really happy to see galatians 5 one, 5 one says it is for freedom that Christ has set you free. Stand firm then and do not let yourself be burdened again by yoga slavery. Slavery, one verse and the other one, which is, I say, will be on my tombstone, hopefully, about 30 or 32 years from now. John 17 four, I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. That's a call to all of us because we were born for such a time as this, believe it or not, but the one verse I saw missing, which I think is so key today is Romans 12 two. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your thinking. The pattern of this world keeps telling Christians, don't be political. It keeps telling Christians, you know, shot up, or you're a bigot, or you're this, or that, and the Christians say like, I go for like, yeah. Instead of saying, be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

Can't We All Just Get Along?

So having millions of millions of people, millions of different churches, may be a positive thing, but it's just people can not get along, man. People can people can not get along. You know, even in the faith of Christianity, you're like, we have one book. How do we have 40 different denominations? They say it's more like 40,000 different denominations, but I have no idea where that number comes from. But we have been exposed to at least 6, 7 different denominations in our lifetime, that we know of, maybe churches that we visited. It's like, how do we read the same book, but have such theological differences? Like, where's where's the standardized fact pattern? According to the scripture, according to the scripture, it is very clear that once you receive God's spirit in you that we are all on the same, we should all be on the same page. We're drawing from the same spirit that spirit that was in Christ Jesus, it also being you.

What Does It Mean to Be a Christian?

"So Sam said, what do you think about at least in the commentary he said, what do you think about Christians who are not political? My question is, are you a Christian? Let me just say this. What does it mean to be a Christian? Just give it a name. Just to say, just to say you're a Christian with a cross on your T-shirt. Is that what a Christian mean? A Christian being following Christ. And I just don't, I would never understand this. Why did Christ get murdered? Why did he get murdered? You think Christ wasn't political? You think that wasn't a political climate? He was killed because of political reasons. They didn't like what he was saying. It's not that he was doing anything wrong. They didn't like what he was saying. And people want to pass the buck because they didn't want to be responsible for his death, but they had to get rid of him. What calls do you have against this man? They had none. And they killed him anyway. When you talk about Jesus and you look at the political climate of the day, the pharisees were the governing body. They were the politicians. They were the ones going around and saying, but you still working on the Sabbath. How dare you? They were the ones who were being so dogmatic and religious and their political approach and Jesus was the one who was combating the things that they were doing because it was wrong. They were leading the people inaccurately. They were leading the people from a place of religiosity and not leading them from a place of spiritual connection with God.

Pastor Paul Chappell: Engaging Young Christians

"When you do look at what's happening in the culture, we've seen so many churches that have disengaged. And we heard this from the assemblyman early on assemblyman lackey, who was on the first hour of the show. He said of only Christians would mobilize and get out and vote and vote their values. Then that would really change a lot of things not just here in California, but around the nation. What do you say to that? Some Christians misinterpret the biblical admonitions to love your enemy and some of these things with a passivity that causes them to step back and not want to engage. There is a way to speak the truth and love. There is a way to take a stand and still keep a spirit towards people that is Christ like. And that's something that our students are finding the balance of and acting upon. Well, again,

A Prayer for God's Timing

"Let's pray today for the patients to wait on God's perfect timing. Father today we're reminded by Luke's recording in the book of acts that you alone have the authority over the timetable of our lives, and it's not for us to know. But oh, God, how we long to see around the next corner and into a new season of our lives. We desperately want to fix things and know they'll be okay. We long to fix people and know they'll be okay. But you're clear father in your directives for our lives. We will be your witnesses, telling people about Christ Jesus everywhere. Then you supply us with the power of the Holy Spirit to walk out your will in our lives. So father, although we can't have the answers, we want to see, we can hold on to the promise that your plan for our lives is good. To the ends of the earth, where to proclaim your name and live our everyday lives to bring glory to your name. Father, when our daily trials and tribulations are difficult to put at bay, snap our attention and refocus our thoughts on you and your purpose for our lives. This is the day you have made. Help us to rejoice and be glad in it. Not when it's over, not when it goes just the way we wanted it to, but in it. Help us to rejoice and be glad father. We all spend way too much time frustrated over things we can't change and can't foresee. Let us be faithful to look to you in all things on all days and know the authority is yours, and yours alone. Let's be sure if the direction you're leading us every day got and stay faithful to follow your steps. Less our day today and let your will, reign over our lives. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Christianity and Criticism

"Christian seemed to have dealt in America quite well with criticism and even mockery. An artist so called artist puts his puts a crucifix in a jar of his urine. And it goes around the country from museum to museum as piss Christ. Any of Christian violence as a result of that? What would happen if a picture of Muhammad were in urine or a Quran? The author would be in hiding if he would survive author of the so called artist. The left picks on Christianity because they know they won't be hurt. They won't critique Islam or Muslims because they fear they will be hurt. And because Islam is an alternative to Christianity. And that's good. That's fine.

A Prayer for Pretenders and Patience

"Let's pray. Father stretch our minutes and lengthen our patients, show us how to genuinely love the people you've placed in our lives, lord. Let us not be too busy to connect with our neighbors and have those lengthy conversations while our ice cream melts in the car. Father, we do have time for people, our time is your time. You're the author of our days, and you know the number of them. Your plan for our lives includes loving others. There's no greater task or agenda than to really love them. Show us what it means, father. To hold tight to what's good. We know we need boundaries in our lives and we realize we can't say yes to all the things we want to do or that people want us to do. But the plans you have for us lord. Make time for them. So help us to understand what we're adding to our days, which is not ordained by you. So that we're free to take all the time we need to love the people you put in our paths daily. God, you are love. You love us so much, you gave your one and only son Christ Jesus, so we wouldn't be bound to the limits of this world. In Christ, your Holy Spirit lives in us, directing us daily to who needs us to extend your love to them. Heighten our sense of the Holy Spirit in sharpen our immediate obedience to follow this lead. Bless our lives to shine with the light and love of Jesus father. In his mighty name we pray. Amen.

You got to step out and then like I said, he gave me this sheet to not say anything. And it says, although the law does not require non disclosure unless the court orders issued, we believe that the impact of any disclosure could be detrimental to the investigation. If you do not believe that you can comply with this request, please notify Aaron Tito bomb. He's an assistant United States attorney general. Well, you know what I did to Aaron. I went on my show on Frank speech of 6 p.m. yesterday and said Aaron. This is your notification.

We've been this is our 26th year as a rock band where a Christian rock band, but we do about 70% of our business in the mainstream rock world. So these days we're probably known more as a rock act, even though people know that we are Christians. And I'm married, my wife, Corey is of 25 years, is also in the band. Some people know that, some people might not. So people clap into probably seen us live because she's, she's amazing. She's awesome. A guy back there with a big beard was like, yeah, I've seen it.

Wanted to play music to share this amazing hope I have in Jesus Christ. My mom passed away when I was 15. And my relationship with Jesus is what brought me through that.

"So you are mocked by Rolling Stone magazine. Some little editor there was really psyched that they came up with Jesus Christ super spreader. And let me tell you that this is going to be, I mean, it's kind of like when they said to Donald Trump about fake news and he decided, okay, I'm going to embrace this term fake news. I'm going to make it my term. So super spreader, you decided to make it the title of the film, which is brilliant. And I've only seen clips of the film, but it is amazing. Now who made this film? How did this come about? Well, I've been I was approached by vice and showtime and all these different crazy left outlets that wanted to do a documentary. And of course, we knew how they were going to tell the story. So we just thought, you know what? And then I had some other Friends approach being they're like, hey, what if we just followed around with the camera and we kind of told the story and the full story, which I think is important for people to see, I mean, you know, of course you added so much depth to the film, bringing historical context and sharing your history of what you've seen through your studies and everything. But then we also had a lot of people that were trolls that we interviewed. We had people telling their side of the story from, you know, how much they hated what we're doing or criticize what we're doing. We have Harvard theologian professors on there, a guy that ranted against me in a whole lecture, you know? We have, and then at the same time, we have these crazy testimonies that are undeniable of people that we're going to kill themselves. And all of a sudden they're walking through Washington square park in New York City and they throw their suicide medicine down at the altar and they get baptized, you know, and they leave in freedom. And so you have this incredible journey where it's not like a cheesy face film. I mean, it really is controversial. It's raw, you see the depth of despair in the moments that we wrestle with, but you also see the incredible breakthroughs that got brought.

So so if you're looking at these images and for some reason it makes you worship the image as the deity whereas the media to the if you're at an image of christ and he thinks that it's actually the means by which you are mediated to cries than. Yeah there's a problem there you're treating as deity when it's not. I don't think that's how most people treat it now. I really struggle with the concept of reading the text about jesus and what he's doing and not imagining what is happening. Like not having the pictures that are being put forward in scripture in my mind. And so whenever i'm thinking it through this particular confession or this charge by tradition. All i'm thinking is this has become a weird legalism where there's commandment attached to the bible that is in the bible it's not a biblical commandment. I i have a hard time thing in. That imagery was in the bible for us not to imagine an so. That's that's where i land in that regard. Now whenever gets the discussion of well whenever you see an image of jesus. That's the image in your mind. Whenever you're worshipping jesus therefore you're worshipping false. Jeez i think that goes far into the weeds because that boys onto well. What's your theology. Jesus he's altering what. Jesus looked physically inconsequential right. Because if you have proper theology who jesus is and what. He was doing what he what he is doing. And it doesn't really particularly matter as the second adam who represents all humanity anyway. Incarnation is a beautiful thing. And it's beautiful reality all inspiring reality but really. It's ultimately the theology behind jesus that matters more than how he's depicted in his human form. That's that's where i land on that. So i think that ultimately if if images caused you to stumble in worship the image if you see a picture of jesus and you can't help a worship..

"Not necessarily lutheran not necessarily reformed probably more evangelical where you you can have artwork in depictions. But i wouldn't put them in worship services because that is a little bit too close to home I think you can have depictions in books and films especially for educational purposes and that seems to be the one constant in all this debate. Is that even those who are against images and icons in worship seemed to be okay with putting depictions outside of that context. And that's kind of where i fall and even like if you look at the weird Blind spot if you will of the reformer that i noted in the last episode where they have depictions of jesus on their bibles. I think that's significant. Artsy sprawl argues that calvinism institutes wasn't against art wholesale but that he was adamantly against superstitious reverence of art in church is and again. That's where i would fall. I think within the medieval church. It was completely appropriate to get rid of that because that was a major stumbling block at that point in time. Now we talk about the bible being spread before his put into a book where everyone can read it side from debates literacy here talking about people spreading the story word of mouth. They're giving off pictures. A what jesus are doing. And they're imagining these things in their mind sending read the bible now. I don't know how you how you can read the bible not picture. Jesus and that goes into my critiques of the westminster larger catechism Question nine what are the signs forbidding the second commandment and they censor say that you can't make any images of any of the three persons of the trinity either on on paper since you in your mind. Let me see that combined actual quote just for the sake of making. Sure i get that right and in fact in this question and actually mentioned the regulative principle worship which becomes ironic little bit when it comes to baptism. But i digress. For the sick of sting on corso it forbids the making any representation of god of all or any of the three persons either inwardly in our mind or hourly in any kind of image or likeness of any creature.

"His section on idols in the second commandment minimally which again just brings about the idea that in the second commandment or the first commandment whichever position you take on that this is saying you don't build a god and you don't worship this object as a god so at this point. I would argue that. That's very different than artistic representations now whenever we get to what the seventh ecumenical council of nausea before afford You could still say that this is not what is being spoken of in this commandment because the council said that what was honored was the thing behind the image not the image itself while in this context it is the image that is acting as a deity so at this point i would say i would agree with robert lethal assessment. Now robert letham is a reformed individual who wrote a book on eastern orthodoxy. Called through western is a reformed perspective. And it's really just well done but but the whole point is that he says you know we have to be fair about this. We can't say these guys are worshiping. These icons numb. They're not but he also does caution say it could be really easy to slip into that right especially within the context of worship so how i view that ultimately at the end will be revealed. I guess at the end of this episode. But that's a point worth bringing up. I think that I would pick the side. A robbery letham on so back to the discussion. So those in favor of images would say that the classic understanding of the text where you can't make images makes little sense because it does forbid the making of any image on heaven and on earth but almost immediately after within the tabernacle and in solomon's temple we find our work images of bulls. That's something on earth chairman something in heaven lions earth palm trees and pomegranates. And you can keep going on this. I kings seven eighteen. Twenty five thirty six and so we see that playing out where if this commandments forbidding wholesale the making of any images of x. y. and z. Yet immediately after commanded to make x. y. and z. You have a problem So there can be much larger discussion about the hebrew grammar. My point here. Is that the historical context along with adultery and other tax where images are not only fashioned but commandment to be fashioned that the typical classical jewish or muslim understanding are incorrect. Now kenyans have covenant summarizes as follows. He says accurate jesus of commandment one be that would be the segment in their book. Then shows this has nothing to do with art or the representation of aspects of the created order with images rather the command has to do with images used as mediators of the presence or revelation of dd from god to human or the mediation of the worship of the deity. And so that's where i would land on that now. The lutheran review in linka article by jordan cooper is basically neither extreme. If you wanna call him extremes where they use images but they're not venerated they're just educational Bolsters of faith of his of realities. That happened right Let's the best back in put it I think that's really all of the notes i have before. I just give you my thoughts. Which really aren't going to be too long. But anyway my overall thoughts right and again. They're so much.

"Of walton who is quoted kingdom through covenant What is an idol molin idols physical or material image or form that represents a being considered divine an act as a mediator for worship According to dr walton ancient near east ideas vials or classified in three ways. The manufacturing of the idol the use of the idol in the perception of the function of the nature of the idol. So within the near east the ancient near east only god could approve Begin the manufacturing process of an idol ceremonies and rituals will follow that the god could inhabit the image allowing the image to function as a mediator and receive its tribute on the idol would be the center of worship and all formal public worship and was used of revelation to the people. Additionally the idol was seen as a mediator of the people's worship to idols respective deity. The idol was not seen as just a representation of a giddy but also the manifestation of the deities presence as the idol was understood to be animated by the dvd's essence so to make an idol would be to have the the deity commission. If you will this idol and then have this idol be the deity in essence that you would have as a mediator between the god and the human so the function is completely different than just mere image or picture of something right and acts as the way to worship the deity in fact it actually acts as the dvd. it's basically manufacturing a god because the essence of the inhabited the image. Now daniel block elaborates on this too as well. He says the process by which ordinary piece of wood or stone was transformed into an idol animated by the spirit of the god who representative proceeded as follows first artisans were carefully chosen originally consecrated preparing them to enter the temple. Workshop were statues of gods and other secret objects were made animated. Second artisans crafted the image using materials. Available would stone clay metal bone etcetera three through special rights of divination. A day or month was chosen for the quote unquote birth of the god. Four by special incantations and a ritual refer to as the opening of the mouth or the washing of the mouth of the god was born that physical object was transformed into a living representation of the deity capable of smelling incense drinking water. Eating food hearing prayers and speaking words of reassurance or hope next special rituals were performed to this associate images from the human hands that made them reinforcing the conviction that they were indeed divine creations. The artisans denied under oath that they had made the images affirm that they have been made by the craft deities and had their hands cut off. The tools used to make these images were returned to the craft god by wrapping them in the carcass of sheep in throwing them into a river next. The gods were installed in the holy of holies quote unquote which were used as their official residences next to ensure the gods favorable disposition towards worshippers priests were appointed to care for the material needs which include animal and vegetarian sacrifices to satisfy their appetites instance to be used as a soothing. Aroma and the colts statues were regularly bathed in dressed in fine garments put to bed and treated to festivities musical entertainment. Daniel block notes that This less comes from several ancient texts of a series of explaining how was thought to become a god and so these images and this is by the way daniel block for the glory of god recovering the biblical theology of worship. And to be honest. I read this by recommendation As i was studying this and I cannot fine. Daniel blocks official position on images of christ debate.

"The the the bodily presence of jesus had no benefit and so therefore the image has no benefit very strange. I don't. I don't know how i feel about that but anyway He had a book called the constant defense published about fifteen years after his writing against images. And this book on the cover has a depiction of the crucifix with jesus on the cross. Same can be said about john calvin. He seemed to be against images of christ his commentaries on deuteronomy but he had a publication. I'm not sure if he's aware of unaware of this. At the time of the sermons of fifty eight three with an image of jesus on the cover now. Here's here's kind of where it's like okay. The reformers charged depictions of jesus as being heretical because they those depictions allegedly separate the divine nature of christ from his humanity since only humanity may be represented. Same thing that we talked early. So again the tensions between historicism and dostam discontinued in continues on And even said it with martin. Just wait he said that the the bodily presence of jesus had no benefit. It's just. I don't know so there were friends. Of calvin i knock carousers correctly. Peter ver- meagerly and girolamo zante. They differ from calvin to the former held that images were not inherently sinful but they should not be placed within the churches less a b- lead to idolatry and then the ladder held that quote. It is not an pious to paint. Christ insofar as he's is a man as long as the image is not worshiping quote. He also argued the logic of calvin by saying. Hey you know we make images of human beings but we can't know what the sole looks like so whereas the consistency with that when we talking about the divine nature and the human nature of christ So this information was not found by myself. But an article by eric parker that link in the subscription provides and actually images of the bible's four the eric swingley for the zurich bible. The title pages. What i found on my own so go look at the title page of that. If you wanna see those other images and also manuscripts you know leading up to the printing press ahead.

I looked at my geneva bible They have the tribes of israel.

So the second council this council on this topic noted that That worship was to be given to christ latvia and veneration should be given to icon pro skinny who's And as we noted about those who argued that images didn't despite the whole christ those who were four icons argued that those who rejected pictures of christ. We're not taking seriously incarnation So the incarnation made a picture of god. Possible because God had become man christ was the icon Or the image in english of God and clauses one fifteen so they argued that if christ cannot be depicted he cannot have been a real man so Those were against icons undermined the true humanity of jesus and they would say that they helped you heresy of dosage which basically said exactly what it sounds like that jesus was divine but he was not truly human. You only seemed human. So they further argued that no picture could portray the nature of god as the nature of god invisible. That an image of christ is an image of the divine person. Who was in human form in the incarnation. Since jesus and his human form was god's human form the picture did not deny the divine nature of christ additionally those in favor of icons argued from the point of education and for the uneducated and they basically argue that. Since you can paint a picture with words in one's mind you can also paint icon on the wood for the same effect now. Since the reform tradition is the primary tradition against images of christ within the christian circles a brief discussion on the reformation seems appropriate.

"The early church was violent against icons but see what becomes difficult already. If you didn't notice is that the writings against images are indirect if the relevant at all at the same time there is clear evidence of art and images in the early church A good example. Tolan who is a writer of the early church and he notes that christians have images of the good shepherd on houses. And that's in his work on modesty. Chapter ten paintings are also found in catacombs dating from the third but possibly as early as the second century And a famous baptist serie in the east contained images as well and this dates no later to the third century so for two totally in there are writings against images and his writings. But he's obviously addressing practices on that were occurring so as we enter into the fourth and fifth century there are too strong opposition to images the first is from. Ucb's and you see this is a church historian in the early church He's kind of the guy and he says that christ cannot be depicted because the human form of christ was now completely deified which is kind of a different approach than you see in modern discussions which it's considerable but this was in response to the sister of constantine and she wanted to obtain an image of christ from us so he he's requested an image and he says no because it's not proper But he also knows that there were Or there was a monument of christ and the woman with the h- emerge from the gospels. He touches his garment. Healed along with paintings appear paul jesus that he encountered and he have anything to say there. in one letter though it's disputed F- in iras. I hope i pronounced that correctly. By the way this is going to be a mess of mis pronunciation. Because that's my court that's what we're going with So a leader an salameh's anonymous notes that In palestine there was a village church a curtain that had a painting of christ or a saint on it and in this report apparently he pulls down the curtain and he asks john of jerusalem to put an end to the depictions but most people have pointed out that this could be a forgery since the document didn't find itself present until the big debates on this topic and the eighth and ninth century. And what you find. Is that during these debates. Sometimes those documents just come out of thin air. don't they anyway. So this documents in question We see the practice occurring with statues paintings in catacombs and on chalices What's ironic is that. This story of eboni us on pulling down this current and ryan to john telling him to put it into depictions actually was buried in a church that had images which is one of those things where we kind of keep seeing this as we go through all this Other church writers speak of images with little to no disapproval and they point to the cross as a particular image jerome augustine. No images painted on vases in the images are peter paul and christ and gregory of Nusa notes that a martyr is depicted with an image of christ as well further. Same gregory promoted paintings for those who cannot read and images give rise to the desire spiritual realities and then last night before we get into the big debate. That gregory the great.

"Then you have An underlying discussion on what's called the relative principle of worship versus the normal principle So there's a lot of moving parts here. So i've done what i could to kind of summarize key points but there's a big possibility that i have missed things Like i said just. There's just a lot of moving parts. So when we talking about the subject of images and it will become a specifically narrow down to images of christ right Again this is a hotly debated topic namely between the reform tradition. And everyone else. If if we're thinking about it. And i that may not be fair. But if you look at anglicans if you look at You know evangelical is if you look at Catholics if you look at lutherans if you look at eastern orthodox they all believe that images statues icons are acceptable in some ship perform and even within these groups. There's debates about what things are supposed to look like For example. If i'm not mistake. I know historically I'm not if it's the case. In the modern era that eastern orthodoxy disagrees with statues with three d images of christ and saints. They believe it should be only two d. In fact they would argue that the council that will be discussing today Put put that ford pretty clear so they're still nuances there's discussions about whether or not images are just To be placed in a house of worship. And whether or not they have a function in worship or whether or not they're just there for decoration or whether or not they should be included. But you can have him privately and then one interesting one was. I've met quite a few reformed. Individuals who find that depictions of jesus in art is not acceptable but and movies. It is acceptable. But that's a minority. I think from just experiencing perceiving and then there's also been an articulation where They disagree with the idea of pictures of christ in your mind being sinful And if you don't know where that comes from we'll get to that in a little bit.

The surpassing li great knowledge of jesus christ himself and then paul says that for his sake i have suffered the loss of all things in here Perhaps it was his disinheritance from his family Property alienation from friends his status in judaism judaism And all these things that he formally prize he he lost them but he counts them as rubbish and when it comes that word rubbish. There's a lot of discussion. It gets overplayed i think It means useless or undesirable material that subject to disposal on it's garbage and so it can be used for excrement But it's usually known to be A type of garbage. I was thrown out for dogs to forge the right So this could be taking a shot at the further given what he said about lookout for the dogs and soviets talking about. It's all rubbish.

For the sake of knowing christ and i count them as rubbish and order that i may gain christ and he's already established that he knows christ and he's in christ and so he essentially says that he's not satisfied to just know god forensically into be placed in a place where gam declared righteous but he wants to know christ intimately as well and so that i may gain christ and be found in him not having a righteousness in my own from the law but that which comes through faith in christ the righteousness from god. That depends on faith so paul says that he is giving up those things that could previously be a means of boasting in himself and places his desires in christ. So christ has his self surrender. He self surrendered himself and puts himself in christ and by putting his trust and self and to christ. Paul is being found in christ at the expense of those fleshy things that he had.

The christian community is called to seek out the interests of others beginning with christ himself which includes others in the community. Edition has christ humbled himself. The community is called to humble themselves not in part or with exceptions but holistically ultimately. Such things are contrary to the flesh or natural. Dispositions are to self elevate selfish ambition but these are worth forsaking because of the example of christ and his demonstration in the gospel and as demonstration has seen in paul silas timothy and even the philippians who are committed for their charity in this letter. A community of believers are called to live in unity. Not odds with one another. but working. Together as kinsman just has those within the roman culture with seat to honor those who are family.

It's like reading the original Greek and Hebrew looking as Bible so you can trust it and the problem that you meet as a Christian is that you cannot meet a lot of people who come to you in the name of Jesus Christ and deceive you and a lot of people are discouraged by these by this and some Stop Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ even dead. So God has given us his written word. He's living word rose up to heaven and his Living Word is called the Lord Jesus Christ, but God has has written a given us his written word. Which is the King James Bible? So by yourself, they say read it every day every day for an hour. At least I would suggest. I also recommend mostly reading the New Testament the Old Testament is good too. But I think that if you don't read the New Testament, you can go wrong because I'm the New Testament is the revelation of Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ is the savior. So that's why the New Testament has a special position for a Believer song. But you know, you can find Jesus in the Old Testament to and so on but it's just that some people can go wrong if they start with the beginning of the Bible. It takes very long time until you get to the New Testament and the New Testament has a special importance..

"Hello. Okay so I won't give him you my testimony. Saved in. September two thousand sixteen. Beginning September two thousand sixteen. That's when I started to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. And I was saved by. Simply believing in Jesus Christ. And since then I've been reading my my Bible every day. I. Think it is every day. In Mayo two, thousand, seventeen I discovered. The King James Bible and that's when it really took off for me. When I discovered the king, James Bible, and since then I've since the May two thousand seventeen, I've been reading the kingdom's bar before now we're every day. and. I live by faith. Ever since then. And we shouldn't talk about the time before our. Our Salvation you know it's it's the post and. but salvage is by grace through faith in Christ alone. and. It's not a works. As a Sade Christian, it benefits us to to to live by faith. You know to to read our Bible every day. The King James Bible at because we can grow. As say Christian when we read our Bible every day. If you don't read your. Bible every day. You won't grow you know. So that was. Sad may two thousand, seventeen I started to read the King Games and? September two, thousand, sixteen, I got saved now a days when I make this recording this. It is almost timbre it distance I think that like the twenty. Fourth of Woolworth's store something two, thousand, and twenty. So I will must be safe now for four years almost. Four years and. In the beginning, I was a member of of some churches. I initially. I wasn't a member when I could save but I became a member after I got saved. Over Church Another church also. But was part of you could say for why? And I guess I actually was most Porto Bible Studies in third. Church also. You can say that I. would. That was basically the first two years? I would say In two thousand. And Eighteen. No two, thousand and eighteen. Yeah. No tooth two, thousand, eighteen. I started to leave. Leave the churches. and. One choice I left permanently in no actually it was in May two, thousand, nine now January two, thousand, nine, nine, left one of the churches. That's it. And then. In October two, thousand, nine, I left the other. And you know now now I don't even enter short use because they are Mian and I think that. By. When they are on free grace, the churches. I don't think it's good to be there because they have. I would say that there are people running it. It's it's you get you get unclean spirits. Fellow Shipping spirits and. So I left the churches. Kingdoms Bible and. That's basically you know I've. I've come to grown in my faith. In the beginning I didn't really. Realize how I should. Everything I had a lot of. Faulty doctorine and stuff. Ideas. Eventually I realized that. We should take the scripture. We shouldn't We should just trust scripture and that's all you know we we trust the script it's not about. You know condemning people being nice to people is just trusting scriptures. It's that's the way it is an and. But misinterpreted scripture one once I was in the churches, it was difficult to correctly interpret scripture. And that's interesting actually that the actually have to physically churches I think to. Interpret the Scripture correctly now. I have no experience over any free grace churches. I have no experience when King, inspired Baloney Churches. So I call and speak. About charges. I leave in the European Union and the kind of churches have been calling with has been. have been million Well, basically, there's been Lutheran one and. You know the rest have been. Armenian you could say PENTECOSTAL and. based basically churches based on a methodist. You could click that come out of the methodist. And I think. That when they were not they, they're not correct on the Gospel A. That could be it. You know that that but also when they don't use the right Bible. You know they they use in Sweden the Bible's that I used to basically like the. So you have. But I don't know really I the Lord I don't know everything about the reasons behind everything but I do know that once I left the churches stoked physically entering the church is a lot of my trouble. Sold itself it just sold itself by itself. And I had. My. Life a lot better than I can say. Okay. So now it's soon four years I'd been saved. So. Yeah. I was thinking gears. Do this little short to quick testimony and. In the name of Jesus, Christ Kemondo yarn conspiracy throughout the each and every person. That listens to this..

"Hello. So! I'm. Live now. Okay. So, the idea was to do relate the. Bible, study or just Tom. Preaching and the idea is that this video should end up. On Youtube. or And maybe own my my soundcloud. Account which is says Dash. MAC, Derek and A thinking of doing. Videos here because. Of, that it's free for me. So it works with my. A mobile subscription. In the name of Jesus Christ. is I also Jesus Christ. Say I pray that Little Jesus Christ. Make me say what are what he wants me to say. Okay! So. I want to bring off one Corinthians six brothers. Now. What is the one Corinthians six brother? You know we have. Five brothers. which are brothers that are into the since he not beat. You'll nature. That talked about before and the sixteens are are Fornication. railing. Covetousness adultery, drunkenness and extortion. These. Six are mentioning in one five as a brother that we should not. Associated with now so and they make a difference here between if you're, it's a brother or an atheist, wicked man. So if it's an atheist. Then, we can be with him. Because any says because otherwise you would have to go out to the world. And I think. Pointing out here that. that. Back I want to know. Make people notice this here that actually. The the. It seems like in the churches. Generally you will hear that we accept everyone as long as you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. But pool here in this one in five. It's actually teaching the opposite. To in a sense. Don't you think? Because, he gives people a harder. Judgment you could say if they are brothers. And then if they known brothers, if they wicked, you know. And also noticed that they never mentioned women here sisters and I think that is because the head of the man should be Christ Jesus Christ where the head of the woman is the map. So they a harder. Judgment on the man than the woman..
