Bible Address Tonight: God Can Forgive - Can You? Today 7pm Sunday Christadelphians New Lynn 1359 Great North Road New Lynn

Forgiveness – Difficult and Challenging

We all are familiar with the responsibility we have to forgive others and how difficult and challenging this can be.
We can understand what is expected of us and perhaps grasp a little of the concept of the Father’s abundant grace towards us in Christ Jesus and to know our responsibilities of reflecting this grace
towards others.
We are familiar with the teaching of Jesus in the parables of the prodigal son - where the Father welcomed back the lost son in contrast to the attitude of the elder brother- and the unjust steward
who failed to show the same compassion to his fellow servant that had been shown to him.
The logic and rationale of this is clear.
Perhaps there is doubt in our minds and we judge that the other is not truly repentant. Is our human judgement a condition of forgiveness?
So why do we find it so difficult to accept and show grace to others?
Is there something of our nature that can overrule that logic part of our minds which knows the spiritual principles?
Perhaps this is what the Apostle Paul is thinking when he writes:
For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am of the flesh, sold under sin. 15 For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.Romans 7:14-15 ESV
He calls it “the flesh”. We could also refer to it as our emotions or feelings. These cannot be switched on or off at will and so often control our decisions and actions.I suppose that is the difference between divine grace which in Christ presents us faultless before the
Father’s throne and human frailty that carries emotional memories which perhaps only prayer and time will heal.
We may be seeking forgiveness from others. It may well be granted and we may expect to be accepted as if the past never happened - but emotions and feelings can’t be just switched off. There may be consequences of our past behaviour which will live with us still.
And those of us who have offered forgiveness may still carry with us the hurt and disappointment of past experience which cannot be forgotten however much we wish we could.
So let’s acknowledge human weakness, offer forgiveness but understand that acceptance will so
often be marred by consequences.
And thank God for his unconditional grace that whilst we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

The Bible Answers this Question - Can Salvation Be Earned?

Steve Bostin from Christadelphians New Lynn

What does the Bible say about gaining a new future beyond what we know now.
Is this 'salvation' - a life beyond the grave in heaven or hell or is it after the resurrection in a Divine Kingdom on earth?
What did Jesus teach?

What does the Bible say about gaining a new future beyond what we know now.
Is this 'salvation' - a life beyond the grave in heaven or hell or is it after the resurrection in a Divine Kingdom on earth?
What did Jesus teach?
The Lord's Prayer states - ...'Thy Kingdom Come, that your Will is Done, In earth as it is in heaven'
What does the Old Testament state?
'And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Isaiah 2:2-4 KJV
If this is the Biblical teaching of the future World scene - whats our place now?
For the wages of sin is death; but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23 ASV
What should we do now to gain that kind of life? Are we to earn a Christian future by our merits or is there also a need to explore what is the purpose of God too?
'What doth it profit, my brethren, if a man say he hath faith, but have not works? can that faith save him? If a brother or sister be naked and in lack of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Go in peace, be ye warmed and filled; and yet ye give them not the things needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it have not works, is dead in itself.'
James 2:14-17 ASV
Jesus' teaching calls us to a Crossroad in life:
And he [Jesus] said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned.
Mark 16:15-16 ASV
What will you do?
Come to our Address and see what the Bible really teaches!

Tradition amongst Biblical Scholars is that the Gospels were written up to 100 years after the events that they describe; that is the ministry of Jesus, called the Christ of the 1st Century. We'll look at seven evidences, some internal, that show that this may not have been the case. What is the implication of this? Most obviously, is that the history and more importantly the claims of who Jesus was and did had a far more dynamic relivence to the Jewish world prior to the destruction of Jewry in AD70. His mission, through his teaching as being the son of God, was a witness to the Jewish people of why he had to die and be resurrected as evidence as being God's Messiah. This fact was of course, rejected by the leaders of his day but his first advent was proof of the Old Testament prophecies that his role as Saviour was first to the people of the Land before the Gospel teaching of a Coming World Age was then distributed to the Roman world and beyond. The Gospels record a future Kingdom on Earth and Jesus was and is portrayed as first, 'King of the Jews and then King over all the earth bringing peace to this evil world at a time fast approaching. Join with us and look at more evidence that the purpose of the Gospels is to teach the Good News of Jesus Christ's Return to restore God's Purpose with all mankind, after 2000 years of attempted universal enlightment since the Gospel was first preached.

Evidence for the Gospels - Names!

One can see the statistical distribution of names in the Gospel area from ancient literature and from inscriptions in tombs. Using modern statistical techniques these can be compared with the distribution of names from the New Testament; it can be seen that the two distributions match very well. It would be very difficult for even a modern author to invent names with the correct distribution; an ancient writer would not have the statistical methods to even attempt to do so.

This is very good evidence that the Gospels were written close to the time of Jesus, and that the writers did not invent the stories in them. The fact that the names are remembered at all indicates that the accounts were remembered in detail and not just in general terms.

It has been estimated that there are over 1,800 prophecies of some nature in the Bible. Prophecy makes up about 20% of the Bible. Amazingly, the majority of these prophecies have come true, and the remainder are predictions of events in the future.
In the Bible God claims to predict the future. In the book of Isaiah God says “The former things I declared of old; they went out from my mouth, and I announced them; then suddenly I did them, and they came to pass.” (Isaiah 48:3)

We read all kinds of prophecies regarding individuals—that Abraham would have a son. Did he? His name was Isaac. His grandson's name was changed to Israel. That there would be rulers like Cyrus of Persia. 100 years before Cyrus assumed the throne, his name is recorded in Isaiah 45 verse 1. Would you like to predict who the Prime Minister of New Zealand will be 100 years from today? It’s impossible. But here is the Bible giving name and country of these rulers long before they’re even born.
You are invited to come and hear some of the amazing evidence of Bible Prophecies that have been accurately fulfilled – evidences that the Bible is True and there are Prophecies yet to be fulfilled.
The Seminar Title is:
The Fundamentals of Bible Prophecy - A Divine Promise for a Better Future"

There are no other writings, no other books, no other human pronouncements which can even begin to compare with the Bible. But the Bible tells us that Jesus was the Son of God; the things he said are preserved for us in the Gospels of the New Testament. Together with the teachings of his inspired apostles Peter, John and Paul, they reveal to us truths we cannot know otherwise. They warn us of the reality of death; they explain why the Gospel is “the good news”, “the power of God unto salvation” (Romans 1:16).
They encourage us with the promise of a lasting life in the new order which Christ will establish when he comes. That is why we ought to be reading the Bible. It can make the vital difference to us between the hopelessness of death and the confident hope of everlasting life.

Careful reading of the Bible will convince us that God exists, that He is in control, and that He uses prophecy to tell us His Plans. He calls us to be disciples of His Son. The Bible is the book for us. We do well to pay attention to what it says.
