Male and Female Created He them ?

     “This is a true saying . . . If a man desire the office (position) of a bishop (an Elder, leadership), he desireth a good work. For a bishop must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior . . . . One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity (honour and honesty) . . .

     For if a man know not how to rule (to stand before, preside over, maintain) his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God ?”   I Timothy 3:1-13

     “The home (and the church) is an institution of God . . . God designed that the family circle, father, mother, and children, should exist in this world as a firm (a security, reliable and trustworthy, stable). The father is to act as priest in his own house (interceding, standing in place of his family). He is the “house-band'” and what his influence will be in the home will be determined by his knowledge of the Only True God and Jesus Christ Whom He has sent . . .

     Woman should fill the position which God originally designed for her, as her husband’s equal. The world needs mothers who are mothers not merely in name but in every sense of the word. We may safely say that the distinctive duties of woman are more sacred, more holy, than those of man. Let woman realize the sacredness of her work and in the strength and fear of God take up her life mission. Let her educate her children for usefulness in this world and for a home in the better world !

Questions and Answers – martial arts, tai-chi, yoga and the Christian ?

     What is the true source of power behind the martial arts?   And what are the very real spiritual dangers of these mystical practices?   Today, these arts, as well as Tai-chi, Yoga and Qigong, are being marketed as merely physical exercise, self-defense, and relaxation . . . . but is this in fact the true purpose of these practices? And can these eastern art forms be safely blended with Biblical Christianity?

This then is the message which we have heard of Him (Jesus Christ), and declare unto you . . . that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all . . . !” I John 1:5-7

“Today the mysteries of heathen worship are replaced by the secret associations (societies) and seances, the obscurities and wonders, of spiritualistic mediums. The disclosures of these mediums are eagerly received by thousands who refuse to accept Light from God’s Word or through His Spirit. Believers in Spiritualism (and spiritism) may speak with scorn of the magicians of old but the great deceiver laughs in triumph as they yield to his arts under a different form.

There are many who shrink with horror from the thought of consulting spirit mediums, but who are attracted by more pleasing forms of spiritism, such as the Emmanuel movement. Still others are led astray by the teachings of Christian Science, and by the mysticism of Theosophy and other Oriental religions (martial arts, Qigong, yoga, acupuncture, reiki, iridology, kinesiology ect).

The apostles of nearly all forms of spiritism claim to have power to cure the diseased. They attribute their power to electricity, magnetism, the so-called “sympathetic remedies,” or to latent forces within the mind of man. And there are not a few, even in this Christian age, who go to these healers, instead of trusting in the power of the Living God and the skill of well-qualified Christian physicians. The mother, watching by the sick bed of her child, exclaims, “I can do no more! Is there no physician who has power to restore my child?” She is told of the wonderful cures performed by some clairvoyant or magnetic healer, and she trusts her dear one to his charge, placing it as verily in the hand of Satan as if he were standing by her side. In many instances the future life of the child is controlled by a satanic power, which it seems impossible to break . . . !”     – Review & Herald, January 15, 1914

Questions on Music ?

hymns 2Comparing Hymns and Contemporary Worship Songs

As most of you know, I believe wholeheartedly that a healthy church chooses congregational songs with theologically rich text and well-crafted, singable music. This is part one of a three part discussion on some of the differences between hymnody and contemporary worship songs.

The Problem

     Protestant denominations have been singing people since the days of the Reformation. Their hymns represented the mettle and fortitude they displayed in breaking away from the religious establishment (Roman Catholic church), and forging ahead in their new faith traditions. The American versions of these faith traditions initially carried on the mantle of hymnody, with much content being shared between denominational lines. In many churches today, hymns and hymnals remain, either as a vital piece of corporate worship practices or as a sentimental nod to the past.

In other churches, including churches in most if not all major denominations, there has been a decided shift . . . .
