For many Christians, getting offended at things other people say and do is a full time occupation. It’s also a shortcut to poor health, and even worse, it’s the complete opposite of what sons & daughters of God are supposed to look like.
Many Christians are plagued with fear that they might do something bad and lose their salvation. They seem to believe that God writes their name in His book with a pencil so He can erase it whenever He thinks we’ve messed up too much.
The problem with these Christians? They’re living under the wrong covenant. Let’s talk about it, and let the truth set you free from this lie!
Super Bowl 51 is being hailed as the most stunning post-season comeback in NFL history. Down by 25 points with just 4 minutes to go, the New England Patriots, led by QB Tom Brady, put on a tour-de-force against the Atlanta Falcons, that resulted in their tying up the game at 28 with seconds remaining, Then, in the first overtime session in Super Bowl history, the Patriots won the toss and marched down the field to score the winning touchdown in a matter of minutes.
The Patriots looked to have zero chance that late in the game, yet managed to pull off a win that was nothing short of miraculous.
Could God be sending America a message?
Patriots are those who love their country… people who will work hard and sacrifice so that it will be as successful as possible in all areas and for all who live there. What if God is speaking through this year’s remarkable football game to encourage us that He is indeed pouring out mercy and grace in this late hour of our history, so we can once again see the full potential of our great country released again, to be a blessing for the whole world?
This has little to do with politics, and everything to do with something called stewardship.
Much of modern Christianity has embraced an unfortunate mixture of Old Covenant teachings upon which a thin shiny coat of New Covenant theology has been applied.
On this episode of Strategic Insights we compare these beliefs with the Person of Jesus Christ, who is, as Bill Johnson notes, “perfect theology.”
Much of the U.S. Church continues to pour out a veritable flood of complaints, criticism, judgments and just plain whining over the state of our nation. In their estimation, the powers darkness and sin have already won.
Why are Christians so prone to build walls of separation, behind which they can lob their negative words of condemnation? What if God is calling us to walk THROUGH the walls the world has built against us, with hearts of love and grace, to connect deeply with society’s influencers?
Are you getting caught up in all the craziness happening lately? Between mass protests, shootings, racial tension, economic recession, government deception & corruption, and a presidential campaign unlike any other in recent history… we are certainly experiencing the shaking prophesied in the Bible!
We dive fearlessly into this mess in an attempt to give you actionable wisdom on how to respond as a son/daughter of the King and use the authority we were given to make a difference.
But it’s how you deal with them that matters.
So how DO you handle people who are constantly negative, critical, and judgmental in what they say about you or someone you love?
Learn the secrets to never allowing other people’s negativity to affect you, on this episode of Strategic Insights.
Some of the most anointed and spiritual people in the church can also be the most difficult to connect with. In many cases it seems they go out of their way to avoid contact with anyone they consider “beneath their level.”
On this episode of Strategic Insights we expose this childish behavior for what it is, and share wisdom on how to overcome any negative effects you may have experienced.
Does God punish us for our mistakes, failures, weaknesses and sins? Many Christians say yes, believing that death, accidents, job loss, sickness, natural disasters, etc. are His way of “teaching us a lesson.”
But is that true, or have you been deceived about the real nature of God?
