Nr. 272:

Indulgences on Christians still face?

Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise up dead, cleanse lepers, drive out demons! Freely have ye received, freely give it. Luke 6 38 Give, and it shall be given you! a good, stopped, shook, crowded targets should be given to you in your lap, for the same goal as the measures, shall be measured to you again.

Recently, Trinity Gospel nostalgia where the entrance fee was 200 kr. This is contrary to God's word to take admission for Christian Events

We see more and more that the church resembles the world in one and all. It is artistry, entertainment and in fact the same plane the "believers" live. I think we must quote one of Hans Adolph Brorson hymns (Hans Adolph Brorson comes to me from Jutland, Denmark): "O Jesus, Jesus, come soon, however, and see your vineyard art! By baptizing teeming city and country, but where is the fire of faith? What use is it we know you suffered death for us, when we never stand against Satan in faith healthy and strong? ". The first sentence here I think is very aptly: "By baptizing teeming city and country, but where is the fire of faith?". Yes there are many believers, but they are the world for almost one and all, if not worse in many things as there is hypocrisy and acting going on. The world has taken the church of God and Christians Festivals and events more and more.

The complaints 1 10 enemy laid hands on all her precious things, for she saw pagan nations enter her sanctuary, those you had forbidden to enter in your church.

Freely have ye received, freely give it!

What does the writing on the dealer service? We will provide a happy and undivided heart, and the Lord will pay us back. Not necessarily with money and material things. But with joy in your heart, happiness and everything else we need in this world to be fruit-bearing Christians. God is good and he knows what we need at any given time only we seek Him first.

Matt. 6. 25 Therefore I say unto you, Do not worry about your life, what ye shall eat or what ye shall drink, or for your body, what ye shall clothe yourselves with! Is not life more than food, and the body than clothing? 26 Look at the birds: they neither sow nor reap nor, they gather into the charger, and your heavenly Father feeds them anyway. Are not I much more than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit to his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of them. 30 But God so clothes the grass of the field, which stands today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore shall ye not worry, saying, What shall we eat or what shall we drink or what shall we clothe ourselves with? 32 For all these things the Gentiles seek, and your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all this. 33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these added unto you 34 Therefore do not worry about the day tomorrow! for the day tomorrow will worry about him for himself, each day has enough trouble of its own.

Wonderful words that we should learn by heart and leave it in your heart so that it can bear fruit, fruit that lasts.

Includes an article in the end we left on our website that I want to have here on the blog.

Dealer Service

Several times in the history of the church has groups of people attempted to introduce portions of the Mosaic Law into the Christian faith. In Paul's own time Judaistene claimed that the Christians who were of other nations than the Jews, had to be circumcised before they could be saved. Paul fought against such ideas, and this writing he is also excited about in his letters. Paul is not bare in his wrath against such things, and says that he who in a way trying to follow the law of Moses, has come out of grace in Christ, and that he wishes that those who circumcise himself had to cut off a certain part of body in his attempt to "improve" the gospel.

These days, clutching including Seventh-day Adventists on Sabbath and matforskriftene in the Old Testament. In the same way, trying most churches today is to maintain the Old Testament practice of paying tithing. There is also some confusion about what the tithe is actually about something, and this is an attempt to clean up by looking at what both the Old and New Testament actually teaches about tithing. We will see that Christians are not obliged to pay tithes, but that everyone is free to give of their time, talents and money as he or she finds it in his own heart. But-so is it also true that the Lord will give us back our bounty here on earth. Luk.6: 38 Give, and ye shall be! A good, stopped, shook, crowded targets to be given you in the lap, for the same measure that you measure with, you will be measured again. What is tithing? The first thing we must do is find out what tithing is all about. Tithing was well known not only in Israel, but also in the Middle East,-where the tithe was used as income for kings and nobility. A tax, in other words. Biblical definition of Tenth: - A tenth of annual production, either in the form of agricultural products or products from animal husbandry. That is NOT money. (3.Mos.27 :30-32) According to the law of Moses was a compulsory tithe system. (3.Mos.27: 30, 3.Mos.27: 32, 5.Mos.14.22-23, 5.Mos.14.28). Pastors and church leaders who preach tithing, shows that they do not own the least notion of what the Bible teaches about tithing at all,-for the tithe is not ten percent of your income, as they claim. Nor, it seems that they understand that the New Covenant has replaced the old covenant, as they try to awaken life in the Old Testament ordinances.

This is what the Bible teaches about tithing size: We have not only a tithe, but three! 1) Annual tithes for the maintenance of the Levitical presteskap.5.Mos. Kap.14) 2) The annual tenth of Jerusalem. (5.Mos. Kap.14) 3) Tenth every three years for the Levites, the widows and orphans-,-and to the strangers in the land. (5.Mos. Kap.14) Altogether, this would not constitute 10% of your income, such as it is practiced today, but 23.3% of annual income.

Tithing was an annual event, NOT on every payday or once a week, as we practice it today. The Bible also teaches that those who lived far from Jerusalem to sell products that accounted for the tithes, and use the money to a party before the Lord, under the condition that the Lord had blessed them abundantly in the year that had passed. (Read-5.Mos.Kap.14) Tenth word is used eight times in the New Testament. Every time the word is used to refer to the Jewish practice of tithing, or an Old Testament event. The New Testament is full of admonitions about sin and spiritual problems, but we never see anyone reprimanded for not paying tithes. In Acts 5:1, we read about Ananias and Sapphira who sold a piece of land to give money to the meeting. This couple did not die because they did not give money, they did, but that they kept some of the money back in secret. I have heard speeches collection, which uses this story to scare the assembly to distort their wallets. The Bible teaches that the tithe would be given to the Levitical priesthood, not-for pastors and other church leaders. (Hebr.7: 5) By looking at the fonts from the churches of the first centuries, we find nothing of the first churches had a practice of paying tithing. Irenaeus,-renowned leader of Smyrna, the church says the contrary, that the custom of paying tithes ceased with Christ. The reason is simple:-The new covenant came to fulfill the old covenant. Misunderstand not. . . -Jesus said that not one jot of the law and the prophets will perish. The law is, as Paul says,-good, and a schoolmaster unto Christ. The law still applies, for those who are in Christ. But for us, which is in Christ's law fulfilled by the Lord Himself, that we should not have to carry it out. Why should we pay tithing, according to a law which is fulfilled for us? Mosaic law was given to the Jews, not to the Christian church. Why are we on the law of the tithe, but not all the other commandments and regulations of the Law of Moses? Moss Act requires among other things, not to dress in clothes made of different materials such as wool and cotton. Either the clothes be made of wool only, or simply cotton. Keeping some of us that part of the law of Moses? No-of course not! Why are we required to follow the law of Moses when it comes to tithe? -The reason is very simple:-Some are looking for your money! Ask any pastor you want, why we do not follow the commandments of the Mosaic law, and he will answer you the following: "Because the old covenant is replaced by the new covenant." If you ask why we are required to follow the old covenant of tithing, your pastor, you must lie, if he will sound believable, and say that it is imposed on us as the new covenant. - Is that it? - We can turn to the scriptures in the New Testament to see if we imposed such a thing. Matt.23: 23 Woe unto you, ye scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites, ye tithe mint and anise and cummin, and not paying any attention to the weightier matters of the law Justice and mercy and faithfulness! This should be done, and the other non Lates undone. -Jesus says this to us or to the scribe? Luk.18: 12 I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all my income. -This is the story of the skipper and the scribes, where the scribe bragging about how fair he is. -This is hardly a directive to us to pay tithes. Heb.7: 1 . . he also Abraham gave a tenth of everything, and that first, when his name is construed, the righteous king, but then also king of Salem, there is peace king. -Is this an order to us? Heb.7: 3 And behold, how great he is, that like Abraham the patriarch gave a tenth of even switching! Rather, this is not a commandment. Heb.7: 4 And while the children of Levi who receive the priesthood, have a commandment to take the tenth according to the law of the people, it is of their brethren, though these have come from Abraham's loins. Same here too, no-decree. Heb.7: 5 So, this, that does not expect his seed from them, taking tithes from Abraham and blessed him that had the promises. Again the same,-Paul does not give us orders to pay tithes. Heb.7: 7 And here is the mortal man who takes tithe, but where a person who has the testimony that He lives. Now it should soon be a commandment to pay tithing here. . . for now we have only one scripture again. . . Heb.7: 8 And if I may say: If Abraham is even Levi, who takes tithe, was added in the tenth. Yes, folks, this was all the New Testament had and say about tithing. -Not a single prescription to us Christians. Most of the above passages is that you see from the Hebrew-letter-where Paul teaches about salvation in Christ. He teaches tithing is NOT! Scriptures about tithing points only back on the events in the Old Testament. The New Testament contains no teaching on tithing at all. I am quite sure that if God has plans for your church,-so is he fully capable of implementing the plan without restoring the law of Moses! Money should be no problem at all for those who are in God's plan. -Then arrange possibly God of things, so that His plan is implemented. Namely, God has a habit to finish what He starts.

Fil.1: 5 And I am confident of this that he who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

-But if the pastor of your church has a lot of plans that God has not given him, I understand that the economy is a topic that is covered with a lot of hassle and stress. If the leaders in our parishes have plans that have arisen in their own heads, they should themselves be responsible for providing money to implement their plans. The world is full enough as it is the people who run the carousel with other people's money!
