Disappointment

If you've never found yourself disappointed in God, hang on! Sooner or later--days, weeks, months, maybe years--it's going to be your turn. And if you don't think it can happen to you than you've forgotten that the student is not above his Master.

It Shall Not Be Forgiven - Part 4

The fourth and final part of a series that explores how George MacDonald viewed Jesus' words on forgiveness, and, espcially that of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. Key to our understanding is that of grasping both what Divine forgiveness means and what such blasphemy against the Spirit entails. Only when we have brought into harmony these two elements together with the love of God as found in Jesus do we begin to see that, far from a cold juridical condemnation of those guilty of a great wrong, Jesus’ words express a loving truth full of Father’s compassion and meant for our good.

It Shall Not Be Forgiven - Part 1

Efforts have been made in an attempt to understand what Jesus meant when he said that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit would not be forgiven. The gravity of such an utterance by the Lord begs the most serious inquiry! Key to our understanding is that of grasping both what Divine forgiveness means and what such blasphemy against the Spirit entails. Only when we have brought into harmony these two elements together with the love of God as found in Jesus do we begin to see that, far from a cold juridical condemnation of those guilty of a great wrong, Jesus’ words express a loving truth full of Father’s compassion and meant for our good.

Over the next four days I will be sharing George MacDonald’s thoughts on this very passage. May it prove an encouraging blessing to all who listen and hear!

Followers of The Way

I think it a good idea for those who identify themselves as “Christians” to put ourselves in the shoes of our critics and gain what insight there is to be had from their observations and perspectives. Although we may not agree with everything they have to say—perhaps not even with the bulk of it—nevertheless, there is often truth enough in some of their criticisms for us to reflect on when viewed in the illuminating light of our Lord’s own words.

In his book, The Call, Os Guinness presents just such an insightful look in a chapter entitled Followers Of the Way.
