The real me!

When I meditate on Jesus actually living inside of me, I can’t help but feel that I am merely talking to myself. I believe the confusion I often feel stems from an improper focus; that focus being my inability to live up to what I think God wants me to be, rather than what He has promised He has already made me. I am not who the flesh suggests that I am! I am who the spirit of promise declares me to be. I must not dwell on my natural face, but rather stare continually into the perfect law of liberty through which Christ makes me free.
‘Be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.’ ~ James 1:22-25
Here is a closer look at the term doer of the work:
Then they said to Him, ‘What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?’ Jesus answered and said to them, ‘This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent.’ Therefore they said to Him, ‘What sign will you perform then, that we may see it and believe You? What work will you do? Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.” Then Jesus said to them, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.’ Then they said to Him, ‘Lord, give us this bread always.’ And Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.’ John 6:28-35
Authors note:
To us God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery: which is Christ in us our hope of glory. Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus. To this end we labor, striving according to His working which works in us mightily.
This is the real you….this is the real me! God bless!

Theologians or thugs..You decide!

From what I have observed over the years in the institutional church, it seems the most commonly used study bibles are those of John MacArthur and Thomas Nelson. Therefore, it only stands to reason that the comments and opinions of these men are among the most widely excepted versions of correct biblical interpretation. In other words, these are the comments and opinions we as christians are most likely to run into on any given day.
Here are some of the comments made by these men over the past half century. Please keep in mind this is a very brief lesson surrounding the errors of the so-called great theological minds of our time; and my advice is that you do your homework before you receive truth. That you make sure it’s God’s truth rather than man’s. Proverbs 14:12
Commentary Thomas Nelson – Hebrews 10:29:
And I quote: “A believer who commits these offenses will be judged with a punishment worse than death.” End Quote
Clearly the bible does not support the judgment or punishment of the believer; but rather states in Romans 8:1, ‘Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.’
Commentary John MacArthur – I John 1:5-7:
And I quote: “In scripture, light and darkness are very familiar symbols. Intellectually, light refers to biblical truth while “darkness” refers to error or falsehood. Morally, light refers to holiness or purity while “darkness” refers to sin or wrongdoing. A genuine christian walks habitually in the light (truth and holiness) not in darkness (falsehood and sin). Their walk also results in cleansing from sin as the Lord continually forgives His own. Since those walking in the light share in the character of God, they will be habitually characterized by His holiness, indicating their true fellowship with Him.” End quote
The reference to darkness and light in the opening statements of I John are not in regards to sin or wrongdoing in the life of the believer; but rather depict the darkness of unbelief concerning the askewed view the gnostics had surrounding the testimony of Christ. A genuine christian is not someone who habitually walks in a shroud of holiness; for this would be impossible. To make this claim is actually to walk in falsehood and sin. Thus by his own admission, John MacArthur has placed himself in the realm of darkness by habitually teaching something that is not true.
We do not live by our ability to walk in habitual holiness; for to do so would be to remain under law! We live by and through what Christ has accomplished on our behalf. For despite the deeds of this carnal dead body, He has made us perfect, holy, and without accusation. Any other position is just not honest, and if it’s not honest, it’s a lie..period.
Author’s note:
I know it’s a shocking thing for leadership to honestly and openly admit that all who are in Christ have the same ability to interpret scripture; however, that did not stop John from stating the following:
I John 2:20-21: “But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and no lie is of the truth. 
I John 2:26-27: These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you. But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.”
P.S. Be careful little christian what you read. The world is ripe with theological thugs.
