Fear & Lies

I Peter 3:14-16 - But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. AND DO NOT FEAR THEIR INTIMIDATION, AND DO NOT BE TROUBLED, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence;  and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.

Two Major Sins

Ezekiel 22:4 - “You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed, and defiled by your idols which you have made. Thus you have brought your day near and have come to your years; therefore I have made you a reproach to the nations and a mocking to all the lands.”

Have you noticed all the confusion in the airwaves today?

Isaiah 9:16 - For those who guide this people are leading them astray;  and those who are guided by them are brought to confusion.

People don’t know who they are, they speculate about who you are, and they make slanderous statements about those who do seem to know who they are.

Responses to "The Great Commission"

The Great Commission

 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matt 28:19-20

Last week’s article on The Great Commission generated some responses that I thought were worth sharing.  One, an insurance agent, asked , Is The Great Commission 15% or 20%?

The Great Commission

The Mission of CBMC

To present Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to business and professional men and
to develop Christian business and professional men to carry out The Great Commission.

Did you ever wonder what The Great Commission is?

It is so much a part of the fabric of CBMC and of the message of the church that I attend, that I have never questioned it.  I have studied it and written about it and attempt to practice it.
