We the People, each and every one of us, have been given a special talent(s) and/or riches from God and while it is truly special to be blessed by the creator in such a magnificent way, we cannot take these talents for granted. They have been given to us for a special purpose and because God has entrusted us with them, we must always take great effort when using them.
Just like with great power, the blessings and talents of God come with great responsibility. Romans 8:5 reads “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.” When we take great responsibility in what God has given to us, we do our best to follow and pursue these things and this is especially true for those who spread God’s wor
President Donald Trump has done a magnificent job in holding the media accountable for their wrongdoings. For so long, much of the media members have controlled the narrative without people questioning what was being reported but a lot of people are now awake. For those people who have decided to spread God’s word, we must remain true to scripture and what it says. Deuteronomy 4:2 says as much: ”Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”
While many reporters and so-called journalists typically add or take away from the truth, those who spread God’s word cannot do this. Sadly, this does happen and it hit me really hard when I was made aware of an article on Belief Net by Megan Bailey that detailed how Christ did not die on the cross for our sins. Mrs. Bailey expresses certain ideas that stood out to me including that while Christ died on the cross, it was not for the sins of man and that such a notion is not found within scripture.
The idea that Christ died on the cross for our sins is not only Biblical but it’s the basic foundation of the Christian faith. Baptist preacher and noted evangelical, A.C. Dixon, was known for the following words: ”In Jesus Christ on the Cross there is refuge; there is safety; there is shelter, and all the power of sin upon our track cannot reach us when we have taken shelter under the Cross that atones for our sins.” 1 Peter 3:18 explains “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:”
Scripture says much about the crucifixion of Christ and why it had to happen so it’s hard to believe that, after reading scripture, how someone could deny Christ doing so for our sins. The article is a good read and does point out some interesting details that are true such as Christ’s sacrifice was an act of love but regardless of how we feel or any particular agenda we may hold, Christ not only died on the cross but He did so for each and every person, past, present and to come and did so to atone for their sins: ”Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification” (Romans 4:25).
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”–Deuteronomy 4:2
