The Sermon on the Mount was Not Originally for the Church

Against popular modern-day misconception, the Sermon on the Mount was NOT originally delivered to the New Testament Church. It does not directly apply to us, though we can draw from its principles. Yet, we must be sure we correctly interpret the Sermon before we can be assured the principles drawn are sound. To put it …

Humility Precedes Power

There’s a lot of seeking for God’s “power” among Christians. They should be seeking Jesus, not his power; but here’s how to really tell if a person has God’s “power” (grace) on their life: THEY ADMIT THEIR SPECIFIC WEAKNESSES. The Apostle writes, ...I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ …

Break Not, Quench Not: Reconciling God’s Mercy & Justice

In a previous post, titled Who's the Weak One?, Lambs Harbinger described one of the reasons a Christian may be judgemental. In that article, I began by saying, in most cases, Christians have generous attitudes (i.e. compassionate, understanding, forgiving, respectful, giving the benefit of the doubt, thinking the best of, etc.). If they have not been gracious …

Have you ever heard a Christian say, "I've ruined my testimony," or, "Now, don't do that; you'll ruin your Christian testimony." What in the world is that supposed to mean? It means just this: …

Correctly Defining Legalism

As the aim of Lamb's Harbinger is to provide apologetics for the Gospel, I must expose legalism. I am very often grieved that there are churches and theologians who, amid denouncing legalism in a spirit of fear toward moral license, redefine the terms and principles surrounding legalism. As a result, these sort cannot see that they themselves are still involved in legalism; and in …

Who’s the Weak One?

The attitude of Christians should be gracious, not judgmental. In most cases, Christians have generous attitudes (i.e. compassionate, understanding, forgiving, respectful, giving the benefit of the doubt, thinking the best of, etc.). If they have not been gracious to you, either as a non-Christian or as a fellow believer, then there could be an underlying …
