Your Conscience and the Bible and Jesus All Agree

Your conscience has been imprinted with the law of God.  The law of God is love.  Therefore, your conscience will always tell you to do the loving thing for God and for others. 

Jesus of Nazareth fully obeyed the law of God.  The life of Jesus therefore is the embodiment of the teaching of the Bible.

For this reason, it is not necessary for you to read the Bible.  I did not say that it would not benefit you – only that it was not necessary.  If you obey your conscience you will be obeying the teaching of the Bible.  If you do not heed your conscience, then reading the Bible will be of limited benefit to you anyway.

Obey your conscience and you will be obeying Jesus and the Bible.  Repent and listen to your conscience.  Do what it says and you will find joy every day.

The purpose of this blog is to provide information about Jesus to those who want to hear about Him without having to join something.

    In “Man on Fire” Denzel Washington plays an ex-CIA agent who doubts that God can forgive him for what he’s done. He tells a nun, “I am the sheep who got lost.” Based on that, in our worship gathering we will acknowledge together:
    “I am the sheep who got lost.
    “I have stepped off the path.
    “I have missed the mark.
    “I have damaged relationships….”

    The church is flawed, but living in community is enriching and empowering.

      Your confession is a good one, but you’re better off confessing it to God than to a group of people (Jeremiah 17:5-8).

      As for “living in community” with “flawed people” being “enriching and empowering,” I agree. But you don’t have to go to church to find a community of flawed people – this is a description of the human race. Unless you’re a hermit, you’re already in such a community.

      The problem with church is that God is no longer using it; instead, the promised kingdom of God has come and we should be seeking it – which is to say we should be seeking Christ. Going to church is like becoming a Pharisee; it is social Christianity, not spiritual Christianity.
