Sermons about Listeralisticly
[This is part two of a sermon which began on 11/22] If we are honest with ourselves, there are a lot of things in the Bible from which we shy away. Sadly talking about the return of Jesus is one of those areas. I suppose this happens because there is so much confusion about it (i.e., differing views). Therefore, quite often the return of Jesus is left to the realm of opinion. After all, “We can’t know all the details…” This is very true. Yet not being able to know all the details is not the same as saying we can know nothing…nor does it rule out the need to discern what we hear and discard what is not biblical. Passages should not be forced to say what they could not have meant.
[This is really part one...part two will take place, Lord willing, on 12/6] Why are some passages in the Bible a point of so much controversy and disagreement? Could it be because we focus on the wrong things? It is humbling to see how, far too often, we focus on the wrong things in life - albeit with good intentions. It is also humbling to see how much "baggage" we can bring to the biblical text. Is there a solution? Are we to merely agree to disagree?
