The Sin of Schism

For a sin almost so completely sanitised with the pseudo-spiritual bleach of self righteous sanctification, 1 Corinthians chapter 3 will drag it above the moral high ground and into the darkness of selfish, jealous carnality. Cutting ourselves off from other Christians, we have often been told is not only acceptable behaviour but the holiness of Gods people and the preservation of the true church demands it. If anyone could have found justification for the cutting off of other Christians it was the apostle Paul. The chasm was deep which separated him from the Corinthians; morally, spiritually and ecclesiastically, and yet rather than separating himself from their fellowship, he labours to stress that they are his “brothers” (1 Co 3:10) and that they all belong to Christ (1 Co 3:23). The true cause of schism gives it its lethal character; not in the circumstances which precipitate the division but in the carnal attitudes of the men who caused it.

A Bomb in a Basket

Sometimes we might be tempted to look at the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ and at those who preach the Son of God, crucified, buried, rejected and resurrected, and to scratch our head and wonder; ‘Is that it?’

God was about to change the world forever, through the service of a converted persecutor of the church;Saul of Tarsus. In Acts chapter 9 Pauls ministry gets off to an ignoble start as he is bundled into a basket and lowered down a city wall at night! Is this the man that will turn the western world upside down? Where is the power in that? The ‘dynamite’ of God lay not in who Paul was but in what he had found in Jesus Christ! This was a Bomb in a Basket. Taken from :

Gods Last Call – Acts Chapter 9 – Just Added

The Damascus Road conversion of Saul of Tarsus represented a great beginning for both the Apostle Paul, as well as for the spread of the Gospel to the western world. Gods call to Saul not only signalled the beginning of great things to come but it also sealed the end of God calling so clearly from heaven and constantly troubling Sauls conscience. Illumination for Saul in his state of spiritual darkness would come at a painful cost. God would bring him from darkness to light by illuminating him with a darkness yet darker still, a blindness so impenetrably black that God alone could reach through the bleakness of his hungry despair. This was the final opportunity to respond to the God who called from heaven.

Just added a new message preached from Acts chapter 9:

When I Came to You

As a job application it was destined to leave the apostle Paul well off of the interview short-list, yet chapter 2 opens with a self appraisal which leaves the reader in no doubt as to Pauls short comings. He wasn’t big on wisdom, speaking wasn’t his strong point, he lacked self confidence and felt his weakness. Despite all of this the mission at Corinth had been a rip roaring success! It always had been the case that when God chose a man suitable for His service He had rejected anyone too proud to acquiesce to His omnipotence. God always sought a servant willing to become a channel clean enough, through which blessing might flow to others; and that blessing was GREAT!
