Acts 3:15 – You Killed the Author of Life

Following the astounding events at Pentecost, Jesus’ apostles walked in the power of the Spirit.  They were given power from on high through the Spirit Baptism, and this gave them the means to be bold in Jesus’ Name.  The Lord had taught them for three and a half years, He had opened their minds to…

John 15:6 – Thrown Into the Fire

Most people don’t like the brutal honesty of Jesus; in fact, many preachers refrain from commenting on certain of His harsh statements.  After all, Jesus is love; isn’t that what His Red Letter Words are all about?  Don’t the people who proudly proclaim they read only His Words in Red say that His message is…

John 9:31 – God Listens to Him

For some reason, many people who consider themselves Christians believe they can live a carnal or secular life and still have God listen and respond to them.  In our present culture there are numerous people who go to church and live far from God, yet expect His blessings.  Who are these people?  Given the nature…

1 Samuel 8:7 – Rejecting God

The mindset of the people in the Ancient Near East (ANE) was quite different from ours today.  This is a major reason that when we read the Bible, we need to do so with the mind of someone in ancient Israel.  If we don’t do that; if we read and judge from our modern perspective,…

Exodus 20:18-21 – Near or Far from God

As God was introducing Himself to the Israelites during the Exile through various encounters, in which Moses was the intermediary, an interesting dynamic comes into focus.  The passage in Exodus 20:18-21 gives us an indication of this interplay: “Now when all the people saw the thunder and the flashes of lightning and the sound of…

More Q Quandaries

I like Q.  That said, I have serious Biblical reservations about Q’s end game, as I’ve previously detailed.  (Here is one such post: http://garyritter.com/the-q-quandary-part-1/.)
