This is a simplified commentary on Acts 1. This is not a completed work and will be updated as needed. Also note, commentaries come from human views and reasoning. Study carefully.
First off, I believe that people should be both pro-choice and pro-life. Allow me to explain.
Recently, someone visited our knowledge-base and decided to attack us by calling us f****** propagandists on our live chat. Let’s point out a few reasons why we are NOT considered propagandists.
Imagine waking up to a world where skin color has become a weapon by which people can freely through around racism, as long as it doesn’t affect their skin color. Imagine being told you are a white supremacist for following a more-than-likely brown man as a prophet and how your religion is a white person’s religion and is all about violence and bloodshed. Yes, this is today, and I’ve been awake to see most of it.
“Being a Christian is not a religion, it’s a relationship.” Heard that before? Probably. And you probably ate it up.
The question asked is this: why do you go to church?
Based on a biblical perspective, most would use this verse:
Hebrews 10:25 KJV
Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
A Refute To: Should Christians Drink
What Does The Bible Say?
Ken Raggio’s comments are in the quotes below.
Here is what the Bible says about drinking alcoholic beverages:
Proverbs 20:1 – “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”
Leviticus 10:9 – “Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations.”
Proverbs 31:4-5 – “It is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted.”
Proverbs 23:31-32 – “Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright. At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.”
Habakkuk 2:15 – “Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also…”
Dear Ministers and Leaders in ministries:
After a careful analysis of various churches, ministers, and testimonies, I have come to the conclusion that churches in themselves are not the problem, we are. How often do we lose people, who were starting to come to the knowledge of Jesus Christ, because of our behavior and attitude? How often do we not have the right motivations behind our speech? How often do we fail to be more Christ-like to others, including our own church family? Thomas Gordon provides a list of communication spoilers and from this, I will attempt to not only explain our problems but also guide us toward solutions.
The world is a place where confused people do chaotic things. The opportunities for harming a person are too numerous to count. The danger lies on all sides, outside and inside. And while part of the church sits idly by and allows sin to run rampant among the congregation and leadership, the other side (a smaller side) is doing what it can to fight back.
Confusion is messy. Confusion is what causes people to see what they want to see, not what they need. Confusion creates desperation to search out for any pieces of higher knowledge for truth but forgets that it’s the simple things in life that really matter. Confusion creates people who break up families and churches. And in churches, confusion is not normally from the congregation, but the leadership. Confusion leads to chaos.
