Daily Bible Study - kindly provided by Premier and the Bible Society

Do have a look at the Premier Daily Bible reading below. It is really so good.


Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high- sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.

Saturday 26 November

Colossians 2:8-9
The apostle Paul didn’t believe in beating around the bush! He was so convinced that Christ was the complete answer to the human predicament that he saw every other philosophy as a waste of time. That didn’t mean that he was unwilling to spend time listening to people with other beliefs. He simply didn’t believe that they had anything
to offer when compared with Christ. When Paul visited Athens, he spent a great deal of time speaking with the philosophers there, and gladly accepted an invitation to address the Areopagus (the forum in which they held their debates). He sensitively referred to their own poets and thinkers but his focus was always to proclaim Christ.

It is the fact that Jesus was both fully man and fully God which marks him apart from other great teachers. I love the words of Victor Hugo, the French novelist and poet, who stated: “Pythagoras, Epicurus, Socrates, Plato, these are the torches of the world; Christ is the light of day.” The great thinkers and philosophers of the world have contributed insight and wisdom, but they pale into insignificance alongside the Jesus, the light of the world. We live in a society which wants to suggest every philosophy and religion is of equal significance. But Paul would robustly disagree. Only of Jesus can it be said that the fullness of God dwelt in him. He alone can be described as “the Way, the Truth and the Life” (John 14:6).

I believe that everyone has a right to believe what they want, and that it is our Christian duty to protect their right to do so. At the same time, I believe we are called to be faithful to the truth that we have received. Jesus came to bring life to the world and we need to seize every opportunity to share this good news with the people we meet.

QUESTION
How do you respond when you are faced with false philosophies?

PRAYER
Lord God, keep me strong when I face people who reject your truth. May I always be both clear and gracious when I disagree with others. Amen

Godshiker - Catching the wave

I like to corroborate religious teaching scientifically or against other religions or historically before excepting it. The Bible appears to contain several major contractions? However, this is often only because some passages elate specifically times in history and so to the needs of different spiritual cultures.. More..
