National and Personal redemption, both are required

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in repentance

“The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father’s iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son’s iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself.”(Eze 18:20)

The Apostle Paul also teaches that we are to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Phil 2:12)

Each of us is responsible for him or herself in the sense that we are to repent of our own sins when we become aware of it. However, there is something to be said about national repentance and redemption. There is much proof of this in Scripture. How are we to understand and apply this in our lives?

Using habits to set yourself apart

Use habits to set yourself apart

In order for us to lead a set apart life, we need to do the actions that will produce good fruit. Most of us know what these are, yet we struggle to make it happen. Can we use the modern study of habits to bring us closer to these acts of righteousness? We have heard so many bad reports of tradition that most people are scared of the concept of establishing habits. Let us see if we can find a balance.

Tefillin – To use or not to use?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Prayer

After our previous article on prayer, we have done some study on the traditions and customs that surround prayer. One of the topics that have come up in our discussions about prayer, is the use of tefillin or phylacteries. People wonder if the Jewish interpretation of Scripture is valid. Should we interpret the verses literally as they do? Should we also be using these black boxes when we pray? Or, did the church fathers get it right when they said this is not to be taken literally? We investigate what Scripture really says to see if we can come to a conclusion.
