I did a video on the YT channel showing a lady mistreating the passage in Mattehw 5 known as the beatitudes. She reframed them as some kind of confession and called them “The Beatitudes of BLM“. Gross!
While reading today I ran across a diffent take on the Beatitudes. Though it’s not a true word for word interpritation, it does give some insight that helps open the Beatitudes up to make much of Chirst. Check it out. This was by William Tyndale. To see inwardly that the law of God is so spiritual, that no flesh can fulfil it: and then for to mourn and sorrow, and to desire, yea, hunger and thirst after strength to do the will of God from the ground of the heart, and (notwithstanding all the subtilty of the devil, weakness and feebleness of the flesh, and wondering of the world,) to cleave yet to the promises of God, and to believe that for Christ’s blood sake thou art received to the inheritance of eternal life, is a wonderful thing, an da thing that the world knoweth not of; but whosoever feeleth that, though he fall a thousand time in a day, doth yet rise again a thousand times, and is sure that he mercy of God is upon him.
So my question to you, brother and sister is how do you read God’s Word? Do you twist it and defile it to prop up something that God didn’t tell you to do? Or do you attempt to find the Hidden Gem in each passage?
There’s a wonderful quote by Dr. S. Ferguson in his book Grow in Grace that I’d like to share with you.
When we become Christains we are brougt out of darkness ito God’s marvellous light (1 Peter 2:9). God who at creation said, ‘Let light shire out of darkness, has shined in our hearts to bring us to know HIm through Chirst. (2 Cor. 4:6). Formerly we were darkness, but now we are light in the Lord (Eph 5:8). One of the things which accompanies this is the penetration of gods’ truth into our minds, consciences and hearts. We see our lives in His light for the first time. We are brought to see the kingdom of God for the first time (John 3:3) , and we are given a radically new interpretation of our won lives. Illumination, enlightenment takes place (Heb. 6:4).
As we navigate exiting Wokeanda we have to realize that we’ve been in darkness. When you leave Wokeanda we’ll finally see the world as He has intended us to see it. The lens we’ll be using will be the clear lens of His word. The framwork we’ll be using will be the ever sure framework of His Holy law. The Holy Spirit will not make the world visible and clear like never before.
My dear brother and sister, run from CRT and into the wonderful light of Christ.
Let me get this straight. Your god creates, transforms, resurrects, and so much more. Right? Your god is able to save from the gutter most to the uttermost, right?
After all this your god is thwarted by “systematic racism”? Really? I hate break it to you, but your “god” is an idol.
However, our God is not thwarted by anything. He sits in the Heavens and laughs at every scheme and plot against Him. Maybe this would be good day to read Psalm 2. Check it out and tell me that the Psalm 2 God is one that’s ringing His hands over “racism”.
Why does your CRT god seem so much not like the Ancient of Days?
Let’s talk about the real issue on the table. CRT is the Anti-Gospel gospel. What I mean by this is that CRT takes the biggest factor of true conversion and salvation out of the equation. CRT removes personal responsibility for SIN. CRT shifts the blame for all issues onto someone else. There is no biblical support for that ideology and thought.
CRT takes the glory of Chirst’s finished work on the cross and turns it into a work that you and I need to finish and complete. Am I wrong? Show me where I am wrong.
Paul wrote a lot about the Church being Christ’s body and each member apart of the whole. Have you ever thought about why it is that CRT invests so much into dividing and separating the body of Christ? It’s had to have crossed your mind. Why do you think that is? It would seem counter productive. Or maybe, just maybe CRT isn’t trying to unify the body of Christ at all. Just a thought.
I get it, now. It is really easy to see the issues of the past and even today and “know” they’re racist. I get it.
There is one slight issue and it’s buggered me for a while. In this world view there is no hand of God. In order to buy into “woke Christianity” I have to deny that God is working all things for my good. And by all I mean all. So basically to embrace a form of deoism to be down with Wokeanda. I mention this because I’ve been reading up on The Reformation in England and Europe as a whole. For a while I’ve wondered “why” so much was happening there rather than other parts of the world or region. But to ask that question I’d need to go back to Abraham and ask if there wasn’t a sun-worshipper in South America God could’ve used. Or if there wasn’t a guy wiht a propencity to follow directions in Middle Africa. I mean are you telling me that there were NO qualified “fathers of the faith” in Asia? Really?
But that’s the rub. It’s God’s redemptive story being played out to his perfect script. For whatever reason He chose to move in this way. And similarly He chose to use Europe as the springboard for much of what we understand today. Does that take away from any of the advancements of other cultures? No, not at all. It only shows that Psalm 115:3 is true. Our God does sit in the Heavans and He does do whatever He pleases.
Naw, I am going to pass. I can see God moving all of creation, even the bad things in His perfect plan. So I take it back, I don’t get it. I don’t get it at all.
Does it ever strike you that many pro-makers cite “love your neighbor” over the passage in Leviticus 13 (verses 44-46 speak directly to the point)? Maybe because the scriptures say that one’s top lip should be covered, but let’s continue. To me, that does read like a mask-type thing. So the question is why don’t they bring this up?
Here’s why they rarely mention this passage. It actually destroys the argument for total lockdowns AND masks at the same time. Take a look at it, I’ll wait.
The passage gives some very good instructions on dealing with a very contagious disease, leprosy. Notice that only the sick were quarantined and made to mask up. So you’ll never hear a pro masker mention this passage for that exact reason. The love your neighbor has morphed into “do what I deem is loving your neighbor”.
Here’s a meme attempting to address this. The person who posted it seems to know that it didn’t support their idea, but posted it anyway.
Keep pushing back. Require them to defend and explain their position.
In Galatians 2, Paul confronts Peter. I am not going to expound on why, go read it yourself. What I do want to point out is that Paul doesn’t question Peter’s conversion. No one was questioning if Peter understood the Gospel. His salvation was not in question. Paul called Peter out for not walking out the Gospel that he knew. Peter fumbled at the goal line and had to have a flag thrown by Paul.
Just something for you to think about. When you read the text you might find it interesting what Peter was doing. How is CRT similar to what Peter was doing?
