Chi Alpha was reinstated last week as an official student group at California State University, following a compromise over its standards for club leadership.
Christians are going about this all wrong and compromising is not the answer. You do not see Jesus compromising his leadership or modify his rules to meet secular approval. The end does not justify the means.
#2. Where did this word ‘affirm’ come from?— http://www.christianpost.com/news/evangelical-theological-society-annual-meeting-focuses-on-affirming-biblical-sexuality-150576/
We affirm that all persons are created in the image and likeness of God and thus possess inherent dignity and worth.
We affirm that marriage is the covenantal union of one man and one woman, for life.
We affirm that Scripture teaches that sexual intimacy is reserved for marriage as defined above. This excludes all other forms of sexual intimacy.
We affirm that God created men and women, imbued with the distinct traits of manhood and womanhood, and that each is an unchangeable gift of God that constitutes personal identity
It sounds and makes a believer look weak and not really believing God or his word. it certainly doesn’t carry the weight that the word ‘believe’. it is out-of-place and should not be part of the believer’s vocabulary when it comes to truth.
#3. You are either a believer or you are not– http://www.christianpost.com/news/lifeway-nae-four-beliefs-define-evangelical-christians-150570/
After a two-year collaboration, NAE and the Christian research organization LifeWay Research have developed a standard definition for what it means to be an Evangelical
Evangelicals and other groups delude themselves into thinking that their labels mean anything to God. They do add to the confusion the word experiences when they see so many different categories and confusion is not of God. maybe evangelicals should stop with the labels and get back to God’s label- you are a believer or you are not.
God’s label may sound harsh but it is clear and sends distinct and unconfusing message to the world.
13 Christians Who Risked Everything to Defend Biblical Truth
Sorry but as some commentators under that article have expressed, these people did not ‘risk all’. They may have made sacrifices and stood up for what they have believed and aid a price for it but they did not risk all. Let’s tell the truth instead of distorting what took place no matter the reason for the distortion. Paul tells us not to lie to each other and distorting something is not telling the complete truth.
