GOD DESIRES AN ETERNAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU!

By John R Hernandez@NDMH-2015

"What the modern church is missing is very simple. Underneath all its pomp and man made glory it has created a compartmentalized system of faith. Based on a commingling of holidays and a ready made selection of worship times. All revolving around work, sports, play, leisure, and of course symbolic faith. How mankind is able to juggle all those secular activities while at the same time keeping a straight face, is beyond me. Being a Christian takes a lot more than some part time investment.



Christ has given us all so many words of true wisdom that if we all took them to heart it would make us much wiser, and a better person. When he stood by that woman and told the crowd, 'If you've never sinned then go ahead and throw that first stone'. He was reminding us the reason why he came and why he was determined to go through it till the end. Christ loves each and everyone of us, despite our shortcomings. But, He is not some part time buddy we get to share some moments with.
In my opinion, the sooner we get that through our head the better. We were given a set of instructions to help us along but, even that didn't do the job, it seemed. Yet, the loving compassion of our Heavenly Father gave us more than we could ever expect. He knows that a set of tablets inscribed with rules would fall short of what He would expect from an imperfect mankind. At every step of the way He has opened His heart and embraced us, even when we don't feel we deserve Him.
If you were able to take a walk from your city streets all the way out into the middle of nowhere? With only the stars above you and some one room cottage; tens of miles away from then nearest human being. How would you approach God and faith each and every day? Would you have to sit down and think about it? Would you create some form of compartmentalized system of worship, play, leisure, and sport. Would you consider that True faith?
Without selecting scriptures I have blended three important truths from the Word of God. 1) All have sinned and have fallen short of the Grace of God. 2) One cannot serve two master; otherwise he will love the one and hate the other. 3) For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son that who so ever believes in Him would not perish, but have eternal life!"

THINGS TO CHEW ON

Citing Doctrinal Error, Presbyterian Megachurch Leaves Denomination


Members of one of the largest congregations in the Presbyterian Church (USA) have voted to leave the denomination, despite facing an $8.89 million cost for leaving. Menlo Park Presbyterian is based in the San Francisco Bay area and led by well-known author and pastor John Ortberg. It is the ninth-largest PCUSA church, with about 4,000 members, including former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.The motion to leave the PCUSA was approved by 93 percent of the church’s members who voted, with 2,024 ballots in favor of the motion and 158 ballots opposed, according to a letter posted by Ortberg. Menlo Park determined that to keep its property and leave the denomination would cost $8.89 million, based on a summary for dismissal agreement.“ This is a major milestone, and not an ending but a beginning. There’s a lot yet to come of what Dallas Willard called the unique life of spiritual adventure in living with God daily — entering fully into the good news that Jesus has brought, for ourselves, and for us as a church,” Ortberg wrote. A Menlo Park spokeswoman did not return calls for comment.The church voted to join a newer denomination called ECO, A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians, which has attracted 115 other Presbyterian churches since it started in 2012. In its rationale for leaving, Menlo Park cited differences in identity, mission, governance and owning its property."
