Musings on the Doctrine of Original Sin – by Ps Britt Williams

The doctrine of "original sin" is a very difficult one. Unfortunately, the Scriptures are not explicit in detailing the universal condition of men and the complexities and dynamics of how Adam's sin affected his posterity.  Nonetheless, I do believe there are some theological absolutes.

 

I hold to what I refer to as a "modified view of original sin", namely:

 

How to Tell Who is a Child of God and Who a Child of the Devil

The answer to this question is given explicitly and repeatedly in 1 John 3, and elsewhere in the book of 1 John. Jesus also referred to it on the Sermon on the Mount.

Complicated theologies which attempt to discount the importance of repentance from dead works in truly coming to Christ and staying with Christ cannot be reconciled with John’s simple test of who actually IS a child of God.

Comments are welcome.

Love not the World – Videos on 1 John 2:15-17

Satan’s desire is to lead the whole world astray!

Satan’s desire is to lead the whole world astray!
Don’t let Satan lead you but be led by Spirit of God
(Romans 8:14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.)

You must be sensitive to the power of the Holy Spirit. Learn to listen to the wooing and the correction of the Holy Spirit. You will learn to recognize His soft voice so He can speak to you daily directing you on the pathway of righteousness. We must listen to Holy Spirit or we will fall prey to the misleading voice of satan.

Trashy pop culture is one of Satan’s ways of mocking the human race

One of my favourite writers on the Sydney Morning Heard website (which at times should probably be called the Sydney Porning Herald because of its fondness for publishing titillating articles to do with all things sexy) is Miranda Devine. This lady says a lot of sensible things and her recent article: Flash of Fame spreads Sluttiness, made some really salient points about the direction our culture is going.

A Message for People who do not know, love or believe in Jesus Christ:

Repentance from Dead Works

Introduction

In previous lessons, we have seen the wonderful provision that God has made for us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We have seen that this work of God for us was designed to reverse all the effects of man's rebellion against God. All the bad things that we deserve were put on Jesus at the cross, while all the blessings of the Kingdom that belong to Jesus we share in through the cross and the resurrection.
