The Capacity of the Bible.

2Tim 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. .

(1) It is inspired by God.
(2) It is useful to teach doctrine.
(3) It is useful for reproof (discerning wrong).
(4) It is useful for correction (fixing wrong).
(5) It is useful to teach righteousness (what one should be doing instead of sinning).

God gave us His Word in order to prepare and equip the child of God to be perfect (spiritually mature), and in order to have the necessary preparation to fulfill God’s purpose of good works in us, and to reflect the moral character of God within our lives (1Pet 2:9).

To Better Know our Redeemer

Salvation is knowing the Savior. Salvation is not a good work that we do, but it is a personal relationship between a human being and Jesus Christ, the Savior. Only thus can a person go to heaven, and therefore, our knowledge of Jesus (our relationship with him) is what saves us (really it is not that we know him, but that He knows us).

John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Not everybody that knows the details about Jesus is saved because knowledge (just information) does not establish a saving relationship. Neither is it a personal knowledge of Jesus that saves a person because many in the New Testament knew Jesus personally like Judas Iscariot and the Jewish leaders, but they did not go to heaven. Salvation is having a personal relationship where you place your trust in Jesus, and ask him to be your personal Savior, and sincerely believe in Him as your Savior.




The Function of Scripture.

Creation also reveals God, but one cannot understand enough about God from creation to be saved. It is limited. Scripture begins where creation cannot go further. Basically, creation alone reveals a Designer that exists as a Supreme Being that made all, and our conscience tells us that we have offended that Creator, so the two together points to Scripture (further specific revelation). Without the Bible, we are not going to know how to be saved. The Bible reveals Christ. The Bible is the complete revelation of God. It describes God in a multitude of details; also man’s sin problem and more about God’s salvation.

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

But Scripture was given so that we may have a personal SAVING relationship with God. Nobody can be saved without coming to that through the Holy Scripture (which is the only faithful message of God) and without believing what they say about the Savior, Jesus Christ. Simply put, every attack against the faithfulness, trustworthiness, or the authority of Scripture is an attack by Satan against God’s effort to save man.




To help us Maintain Good Relations with Other Men

Deut 17:19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them: 20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

The Word of God has a function to put one right with God, but it also has a function to establish what is right in men’s relationships with other men.

To be Approved Before God

2Tim 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

It is the good use of Scripture that makes us approved before God. By knowing God’s will and doing it, we are approved.

For Growth and Following Christ

1Pet 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

The Bible is like our spiritual food, that which sustains our daily life. When we “eat it”, we grow spiritually in our salvation. Salvation is a relationship with God, so to grow in our salvation is to deepen that relationship with Jesus our Savior. To follow Christ is to be his disciple. This is to grow in our Christian life, and the essential element in this growth is the Word of God. Scripture is the instrument in the hand of the Holy Spirit to transform us into the image of Christ.

To Increase our Faith and Hope.

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

There is a direct relationship between the Scriptures and our faith. Scripture is the means or method by which God has established to increase our faith. Part of this is the “what” we believe, and part of it is the certainty and trust to believe him because we well know the character of God.

Rom 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.

It is by means of this function of Scripture in our life that we have the hope of eternal life by means of the work of Jesus Christ in the Cross. Faith is created by reading and believing the Word of God.

Acts 17:11 These were nobler than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. 12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honorable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.

In this passage, the people of Berea studied the Scriptures and they “believed”. Faith is always the result of an honest and sincere study of Scripture.

Not tasting the Scripture. The opposite of loving the Scripture with desire and seriousness to know is to be “slow” towards the Scripture. By taking an attitude of resistance, disobedience, dislike to the Scripture, or not paying attention to them or blocking what they direct in your own life, is the same as witchcraft in God’s eyes. It is idolatry, and this slowness receives the greatest condemnation from God.

1Sam 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

Heb 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.

To Give Spiritual Power in Prayer.

1John 2:14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.

Deut 11:22 For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him; 23 Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves.

To Equip us for Spiritual Warfare.

Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

When we study the Bible with sincerity, we get the ability to discern between false doctrine (error) and what has truly come from God (truth).




To Clean us from Sin.

John 15:3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
Ps 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
Deut 6:25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.

To Find Peace and Joy.

Ps 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.
Isa 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
John 17:13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

To Be Prosperous in Life.

Josh 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Far from mysticism, activities that have magic effects, reading and studying the Word of God sincerely in order to put them into practice to change you life so as to please God and abide in his will will cause you to be prosperous in all of life. There is a divine blessing on the way of God, and only by finding it (through Scripture) and living daily in that way can you really encounter protection and blessing from God.

Deut 17:19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them: 20 That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

When a person walks completely in the way that God indicates, then will he have this “good life”. This good life includes a lengthening of days or long life.

To Guide us in the Decisions of Life.

Ps 119:24 Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors. 105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Prov 6:22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.

Ps 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.

Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; Ecc 12:1

The Rock group called “The Suicide Girls” make money by promoting the concept of suicide. In fact, there are fads among our youth like the Emus which also promote this concept among our youth as something really great. These elements are floating around among our youth which glamorize suicide, such as a game where they actually hang themselves in their closet, and then remove the rope before actually dying to see how close to death they can get. Many times they err and actually die before they can free themselves. The culture among these groups is a study of suicide to worship it and promote suicide pacts making it romantic and desirable.

In 1995 in the United Status, the CDC in Atlanta did a study on suicide among 10,904 high school students. In the 12 months before the study, 24% had seriously thought of suicide, and 17.7% had actually a specific plan of how to do it, and 8.7% had tried to do it, and 2.8% had been somehow injured in their attempts. There is a suicide in the US every 17 minutes. It is the 11th cause of death in the general population, and it is the 3rd cause of death among youth (15-24), after accidents (1st), and homicide (2nd). There are more suicide deaths in the general population than homicides. ((http://www.suicide.org/suicide-statistics.html))

PC09 Gomoseksualizm ()

Gomoseksualizm

Ruxsat berilganmi? Yoki bu jirkanchmi?

Ushbu risolada, Bibliyada gomoseksuallik va lezbiyanizm haqida nima deyilganini ko’rib chiqamiz.




Levit 18:22 Erkak bilan, ayol bilan yotmang. Bu jirkanchdir.

Gomoseksuallarning harakati yillar davomida juda kuchli edi. Bugungi kunda gomoseksuallarning ikkita hujumi mavjud: (1) gomoseksualizm gunoh emas va 2) ular buni gunoh deb tan olishadi, lekin Xudoni va Uning hayotida hukmronlik qilish huquqini inkor etishadi. Ushbu risolada men gomoseksuallar bilan bog’liq ba’zi masalalarga oydinlik kiritaman. Umuman olganda, mening sharhlarim gomoseksuallik va lezbiyanizmga qaratilgan, ammo qisqacha aytganda, men gomoseksuallik atamasini ikkalasini qamrab oladigan tushuncha sifatida ishlataman.

Sodomit nima?

Geylar bilan yoki gey-do’stlar bilan munosabatda bo’lganlarning fikri shunchaki Bibliyada bu amaliyot haqida aniq ma’lumot yo’qligi va Sodomning hikoyasi mehmondo’stlikni yo’qotish gunohi haqida ekanligi va bu gunoh Xudoning ikkala qahr-g’azabiga sabab bo’ldi. gomoseksualizm (ular bo’yicha). Ular “sodomit” so’zini gomoseksual emas, balki butparast dinning erkak ruhoniysi (unumdorlik ma’budasi) sifatida olishadi.

Deu 23:17 Isroil qizlari orasida fohisha yo’q, Isroil o’g’illari orasida sodomit ham yo’q.

“Sodomit” tushunchasi fohishaga, ya’ni erkak mijozlarga ega bo’lgan erkak fohishaga parallel bo’lishi taklif etiladi. Sodomit bo’lish Sado’m shahridan kelib chiqmaydi, lekin bu qayerda bo’lishidan qat’i nazar, odamlar uchun odatdir (3 Shohlar 14:24; 15.12; 22:46; 4 Shohlar 23: 7). Fohisha yoki fohisha degan tushuncha, o’zlarining ma’badlari uchun pul topish uchun o’z tanalarini qarz beradigan ayollar bilan bog’liq edi. Garchi bu fohishaning yagona kontseptsiyasi bo’lmasa-da (bu erda yashaydigan yoki sodda ta’mga ega bo’lganlar ham bor), diniy tushunchaning bir qismi edi. Afrodita jinsiy aloqa ma’budasi ma’badida bir vaqtning o’zida 10000 ayol (ruhoniylar) uni qo’llab-quvvatlash uchun jinsiy aloqa qilish uchun xizmat qilishgan.




Ushbu din “o’zingizni yaxshi his qilish” dini bo’lganligini tushunish muhimdir. Ularning tushunchasi shundan iboratki, jinsiy aloqada bo’lish “yaxshi his qilish” ning eng asosiysi, keyin ular jinsiy aloqada bo’lishgan. Bu shunchaki jinsiy aloqa emas edi, chunki ziyofatlar, spirtli ichimliklar, giyohvand moddalar, o’yin-kulgi va boshqalar “o’zingizni yaxshi his qilish” ning boshqa shakllari bilan bir xil dinga kirgan. Ammo bugungi kunda gomoseksual va fohishalar bilan (pornografiya sohasidagi kabi) ko’rib turganimizdek, dinning o’zi birinchi navbatda jinsiy ibodatdir. Ularning ayollar bilan jinsiy aloqada bo’lganligi inkor etilmaydi. Bu odamlar hayotlarini jinsiy hayotga bag’ishlagan va butun joni, tanasi va ruhi bilan jinsiy aloqada bo’lgan odamlardir. Ular jinsiy aloqada (fohishalarda) yashaydiganlarga parallel. Farqi juda oz.

Ayub 36: 13-14 Ammo ikkiyuzlamachilar yuraklarida g’azabni saqlaydilar va ularni bog’laganlarida yig’lamaydilar. 14 Ularning joni yoshlik chog’ida va soddalar orasida hayoti halok bo’ladi.

Kontseptsiya odamning buzuq va qabih odatlari tufayli jamiyat tomonidan rad etilganligi haqidagi g’oyani keltirib chiqardi va bu odatlar ularning jinsiga sig’inish bilan bog’liq edi. Keil va Delitshlar, ular xudo oldida gunohlarini eslashni rad qiladigan, mag’rur, mag’rur va isyonkor bo’lganlari uchun ularga g’azabini keltiradigan odamlar turi ekanligi haqidagi fikrni qo’shmoqdalar.

Bu erda Ayub (Ayub 36:14), munofiqlarni jamiyatning buzuqligi, mag’rurligi va Xudoning rahm-shafqati tufayli rad etgani uchun va Xudo uning yoshligida o’z hayotini hayotini kesib tashlaydigan odamlar bo’lgan sodomitlar bilan taqqoslaydi. buzuqliklar.

Sadomda (Ibtido 19: 5 “Ularni olib chiq, shunda biz ularni taniymiz” va Hakamlar 19:22 da: “Sening uyingga kirgan odamni olib chiq, shunda biz uni taniymiz.”) Ular gunoh qildilar. erkakni erkak bilan jinsiy aloqa qilish edi. Hikoyani boshqa gunohga aylantirish juda qiyin. Xudo barcha shaharlarni xushmuomalalik tufayli yo’q qilmaydi. Agar shunday bo’lsa, bugun shahar qolmadi.

“Bilish” so’zi Bibliyada jinsiy aloqada ishlatilgan (Ibtido 4:17, 25; 38:26 va boshqalar) (Ibtido 4: 1, “Odam Ato xotini Momo Havoni bilar edi”). Sodom bilan bir xil kontekstda (Ibtido 19), Lut “erkakni tanimagan” ikkita qizini taklif qildi. Ikkala oyatda ham Bibliyada bir xil so’z ishlatiladi (yada). G’oya – bu boshqa odam bilan bilish yoki yaqin munosabatlar. Ba’zi vaziyatlarda, shubhasiz, jinsiy aloqa qilish uchun foydalaniladi (bilish uchun eng samimiy narsa).

1 Timo’tiyga 1:10 da “sodomit” so’zi [avrsenokoi, thj]. Bu so’z boshqa kattalar erkak yoki bola yoki yosh bilan jinsiy aloqada bo’lgan katta yoshdagi erkakni anglatadi. Gap shundaki, jinsiy aloqada bo’lish uchun ayol bilan uxlash, lekin erkak bilan ayolning o’rniga erkak kishi bilan erkak.

3 Shohlar 14:24 Er yuzida soddadil odamlar ham bor bo’lib, ular Isroil xalqi oldida Egamiz qo’ygan xalqlarning jirkanch ishlarini bajardilar.

Shunda sodomitning gunohi aniq bir jinsdagi (jinsdagi) boshqa odam bilan, xoh erkak bo’lsin, xoh ayol kishi bo’lsin, jinsiy aloqada bo’lishdir (Rimliklarga 1:26) Shu sababli Xudo ularni sharmandali ehtiroslarga topshirdi; ularning xotinlari tabiatga zid bo’lgan tabiiy foydalanishni o’zgartirdilar)) (lesbiyanizm). Gomoseksualizm (va lesbiyanizm) Bibliyada aniq qoralanadi.

Gomoseksualizm gunohmi va jirkanchmi? Ha.

Levit 18:22 Erkak bilan, ayol bilan yotmang. Bu jirkanchdir.

Levit 20:13 Agar biron kishi erkak bilan ayolga o’xshab bo’lsa, ular jirkanch ish qilishdi. ikkalasi ham o’ldirilishi kerak; ularning qoni ularning ustiga tushadi.

Shunchaki bir jinsdagi ikki kishi bir-biri bilan jinsiy aloqada bo’lishlari Rabbimiz uchun jirkanchdir. Eski Ahdda bu xatti-harakatlar o’lim jazosiga loyiq edi (Xudo bundan juda g’azablanadi). Bu hayotda afzal emas, balki jirkanch narsa. Xudo ikkita erkak va ayolni yaratdi va agar qarama-qarshi jinsdagi (va bir-biriga uylangan) ikki kishi bo’lmasa, jinsiy aloqa qilish taqiqlanadi.

1 Korinfliklarga 6:9-10 Nohaqliklar Xudo Shohligini meros qilib olishlarini bilmaysizlarmi? Adashmang; na zinokorlar, na butparastlar, na zinokorlar, na jirkanchlar va na odam bilan birga quvib chiqarilganlar, 10 ular Xudo saltanatini meros qilmaydi.

Bu erda g’oya aniq bir erkak bilan boshqa erkak bilan jinsiy aloqada bo’lish uchun yotadi.

Rimliklarga 1: 26-28 Shuning uchun Xudo ularni sharmandali ehtiroslarga topshirdi; Hatto ularning ayollari ham tabiatga zid bo’lgan tabiiy foydalanish usulini o’zgartirdilar. 27 Shuningdek, erkaklar ham ayolning tabiiy ishlatilishini qoldirib, bir-birlari bilan shahvatparastliklarida e’tiborga olinmaydilar, erkaklar bilan uyatli ishlarni qilardilar va qabul qilardilar. Yo’qolganlari sababli o’zlariga azob. 28 Ular Xudoni hisobga olishni istamaganliklari sababli, Xudo ularni buzuq fikrga berib, bir-biriga zid bo’lgan ishlarni qilishni buyurdi.

Pavlus bu erda Xudo oldida jirkanch bo’lgan ikkita jiddiy va dahshatli gunohni aniqladi va bu gunohlar lesbiyanizm va gomoseksuallikdir. Bu masalada hech kim shubha qilmasligi kerak, bu gunoh va bu Xudo oldida jirkanchdir. Xudo nima uchun Isroil xalqidan oldin er yuzidagi aholisini yo’q qilganini ko’pchilik tushunmaydi. Bu Isroil juda yaxshi bo’lgani uchun emas, balki bu mamlakatlarning gunohlari va jirkanchligi jirkanch va jirkanch bo’lganligi uchun emas edi. RVG

Pornografiya

Vahiy 21:8 da, Xudo olov ko’lida bir necha xil turlari borligini e’lon qiladi va “zinokorlar” haqida eslatib o’tadi. Bu porno so’zlar, Strongsga ko’ra: “1) to’lovni talab qilish uchun o’z tanasini fohisha qiladigan odam; 2) erkak fohisha, 3) jinsiy aloqada bo’lgan va zinokorlikni qidiradigan erkak.” Noqonuniy jinsiy aloqada bo’lgan kishi uchun bu boshqa so’z (1Tim 1:10 ga qarang). Men “noqonuniy” deyman, lekin haqiqatni aytaman, agar Xudo jinsiy aloqada bo’lsa yoki nikohda sherigi bilan yoki noqonuniy munosabatda bo’lsa, butparastlik deb biladi. Xudoni orqada qoldirgan va er-xotin sifatida jinsiy aloqada bo’lgan juftliklar bor, bu erda biz Xudodan ustun qo’ygan narsamiz butparastlik ekanligini tushunishimiz kerak. Er-xotin o’rtasidagi jinsiy aloqa gunoh emas (Ibroniylarga 13:4)

Bu erda qiziq narsa shundaki, “zinokor” tushunchasi jinsiy aloqani izlash va uni yuksaltirishdir. Bu so’z 10 marta ishlatilgan (1Ko 5: 9; 6: 9; Efes 5: 5; 1 Tim 1:10; Ibron. 12:16; 13: 4; Vahiy 21: 8; 22:15) Yangi Ahd. 1 Timo’tiyga 1:10 da tushuncha sodomitlarga nisbatan qo’llaniladi. Sodomit – bu erkak bilan erkak, ammo zinokor – bu jinsiy aloqani ko’taradigan kishi. Ikkalasi juda o’xshash va sodomit zinokorning bir turi.

Gomoseksual xarakter

Hizqiyol 16:49 Mana, bu singilingiz Sado’mning yovuzligi edi: mag’rurlik, nonga to’yish va u va uning qizlari juda ko’p beparvolik; va miskinlarga va miskinlarga qo’lini ko’tarmadi.

Jinsiy topinish bilan, ayniqsa tabiatga zid bo’lgan g’ayritabiiy jinsiy aloqa bilan bog’liq bo’lgan bir belgi mavjud (erkak bilan erkak yoki ayol bilan ayol). Bu buzuq belgi ajoyib bo’lishi kerak. Bunga duch keladigan odamlar bor, lekin ularning hayotidagi mag’rurlik, takabburlik va jasorat gunohkor amallar va xatti-harakatlar orqali hosil bo’lganligini, ularning hayotidagi Xudoning hokimiyatini rad etadigan odamlar borligini tushunmaydilar. Bu odamlar Xudoning qahriga duchor bo’ladilar va Xudoning najotini bilish uchun juda og’ir gunohlaridan ozod bo’ladilar. Xudoning qahriga va qahr-g’azabiga berkitib qo’yish uchun “nishon” nima, bu ularning xatti-harakatlari va amaliyotlari gunoh ekanligini tan olishdan bosh tortishlari. Jinsiy aloqa – bu giyohvandlikka o’xshab, tanada jismoniy qaramlikni keltirib chiqaradigan, bu boshlanganidan keyin uni rad etish va to’xtatish juda qiyin. Faqatgina Xudo ko’rsatgan yo’l bilan (erkak o’z xotini bilan jinsiy aloqada) bu gunohni tuzatishi va unga qarshilik ko’rsatishi mumkin.

Xudo hal qildi

Gomoseksuallikning echimi birinchi navbatda gunoh sifatida ko’rish, keyin tavba qilish va keyin Xudo bizga buyurgan narsaga intilishdir – erkak o’z xotini bilan turmush qurmaguncha.
