169. Is Tithe applicable today?

Jesus never ever asked people to give him offertory. Jesus told people to help the poor and needy and never asked anyone to support him. None of the Apostles asked people to support them with offertory. Paul collected offertory for other poor saints and not for himself. Never once in the whole Bible do we read any prophet or Apostle or minister of God asking money for himself. People who asked for money in the Bible for themselves are Balam, Gehazi and the false prophets.

Christians wake up! Beware of any Christian preacher who uses Bible verses and ask people to give him Tithe / Offertory / Money.

168. What is Cheap Grace?

Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves… the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, communion without confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship…

Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock…

It is costly because it costs a man his life and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life – the cost of discipleship.

-Opening lines of the book ” The Cost of discipleship” by Dietrich Bonhoeffer. I am not gonna put this book down till I finish reading it.

167. Practice what you preach

There are millions of preachers; teachers and Bible expositors on FB. Very few live it out. It is high time all the teachings are put into practice.

166. Caste in Christianity

Caste system is a voice that says “Hate your neighbour because he is not equal”. The commandment of Jesus is “Love thy neighbour as yourself”. Caste system and the commandment of Jesus cannot exist together in a Church. If they coexist it is not at all a church.

165. Who are the Saints?

All saints day – A day that is observed in religious Christian circles to remember and honour the dead.

Saints are not those who are dead. The graves have decomposed bodies. The souls are resting in paradise or ranting in Hedes.

Those who have life and those who follow Christ are called as Saints. The dead are not Saints.

164. Useless Knowledge

Knowledge of the Bible can be there for even an atheist. But to put that knowledge to practise definitely requires the “Fear of the Lord”; for the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Knowledge without the fear of God will only puff up a man and that is vanity.

Reference verses :
Proverbs 1:7 ; 9:10 ; Psalm 110:11 – Wisdom
1 Corinthians 8:1 – Knowledge.

163. Dont Judge What?

When a false preacher twists the word of God/ fleeces the church and leads millions to hell; many would silently accept it.

But when someone exposes that false teacher and pinpoints his false teaching many would pounce on him and say ” God will judge/ How dare you judge God’s anointed”.

As long as such foolish people exist; the breed of false preachers will always be growing
