    Why Jesus if God Accepted Sacrifices?

    Why did God send Jesus if He was willing to accept sacrifices? Also, how do we as Believers go about conducting research on current events?

    Show Notes:Should we be ok with living as ratchet Christians?
    AntinomianismChristianity without conviction - rejection of legalism to the degree of abusing grace.
    This is a major issue in the church today but really has always been an issue.
    Romans 6:1–4
    6 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it? 3 Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
    Romans 6:15–18
    15 What then? Are we to sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! 16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, 18 and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness.

    While we're not under the law, that doesn't mean we're absolved from living in righteousness. We're still called to live holy.God has always expected humanity to adhere to righteousness. This is evident when He cursed Cain for murdering Abel; or when He cursed Adam and Eve for disobedience. Or brought the flood during Noah's day.The issue today, is that people have obfuscated what we've come to know as the "Law".That the advent of Christ and fulfillment of the law means no more law, which means no more 10 commandments. This belief lies within the failure to understand that the moral law has existed as long as God has existed; which is ALWAYS.But there's another viewpoint on this and it's that God is soo loving that He simply doesn't have time for pettiness.The idea that Christ's death on the cross somehow now minimizes the impacts of sin or softens God's view is nothing short of demonic.Many want the pleasure of sin with the benefit of salvation.Only God can judge so who are you to say? It's as if God's Word which makes it plain is somehow null and void?God understands since we're all sinners. - Sure God does understand but that doesn't mean God accepts sin.God loves the sinner but hates the sin - The correct, Biblical way to think about this, is we are either children of the devil or children of God. And only the children of the devil live as the un-Godly.
    John 14:15-17
    “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, 17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.

    If you don't love Jesus who is God, therefore you don't love God; you will not keep His commandments; and if you don't love God you are a child of the devil.Jesus was very clear as to what it took to enter into the kingdom and it was more than a profession of faith.
    Matthew 7:21–23
    Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness
    Matt

    Astrology and Divination

    Astrology and Divination

    AstrologyThe idea we can extract divine knowledge from the cosmos based on the positions of the sun, moon, stars to inform us about human personalities, traits and possibly our own fate.Reasons it is frowned uponCommon reason it is frowned upon within our faith is due to it being considered divination and God forbids divination.
    Divination: The ability to uncover secret or hidden spiritual truths to do things like predict the future or make prophetic proclamations.
    Purpose of the cosmosTo better understand the concern of astrology we need to first understand the purposes behind God's creation.
    Genesis 1:14–18
    14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16 And God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. 17 And God set them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.PurposesGiving light to the earth during the day and nightHelp determine the seasonsHelp determine the days to discern timeAct as signs which are used for navigating the earthGod never defines the cosmos as a means to better understand Him, ourselves, creation or what He is doing.Bible's Stance on DivinationJeremiah 10:2
    Learn not the way of the nations, nor be dismayed at the signs of the heavens because the nations are dismayed at them -
    Jeremiah 14:14
    And the Lord said to me: “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a lying vision, worthless divination, and the deceit of their own minds -
    Ezekial 12:24
    24 For there shall be no more any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel. -
    Deuteronomy 18:10
    10 There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer
    Deuteronomy 18:14
    14 for these nations, which you are about to dispossess, listen to fortune-tellers and to diviners. But as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do this.FatalismBelief in astrology lends itself to a kind of fatalistic worldview. This means that events can be predetermined simply by the orientation or position of celestial objects; as well personality traits.This robs God of His glory because it is God that holds the entire universe in His hands. He has the supernatural ability to alter the cosmos or life in general at any point in time regardless of what is fixed.
    Job 9:7
    7 who commands the sun, and it does not rise; who seals up the stars;
    Psalm 8:3
    3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
    Ps 136:9
    9 the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever
    Jeremiah 31:35
    Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun for light by day and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the Lord of hosts is his name:
    We should not be seeking His creation, but rather Him. By seeking Him it guards us from wandering away from Him or robbing Him of His glory.Accuracy does not matterSimply because something seems accurate that doesn't mean it is good, Godly or ok.
    It's not that divination is false, but rather it is of the demonic and can lead us away from Him.
    Book of Acts (Girl with the spirit of divination)
    Acts 16:16-18
    16 As we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit of divination and brought her owners much gai
