The false gospel of moralism. It’s a perennial problem within the church.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Romans and shows us this problem has less to do with the changing generations and more to do with the sin that plagues the human heart.
In our passage Paul cuts through the weeds of moralism to expose the coming judgment of God.
For God’s judgment brings reward to the believer… but ought to strike terror in those who are trusting in their own goodness.
SBC Host: Have you every questioned what happens to the poor native who never hears the gospel, never meets a Christian, or never reads the Bible?
Avg Guy:Yes! I’ve had that question for a long time. Will God judge that person??
SBC Host: You’re not alone in wondering this… Especially when we consider that there are many others who have repeatedly heard the gospel, been given the opportunity to repent, and yet continue to reject Christ.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Romans and shows us that the Bible provides the answer to our quandary… quite clearly.
Avg Guy: I’m a pretty good person. I go to church, read my Bible, say nice things to people. I’m certainly not like HER. She’s the epitome of sex, drugs, and rockin’ roll!!
SBC Host: Careful.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves fills in at the pulpit to continue his 5 Solas Series, in which, this time, we look at Grace — the GIFT (not anything of YOUR doing), but the gift of God from which we have been saved through faith… so that NO ONE may boast.
Because you see when we start comparing ourselves to our neighbor to estimate our standing in the Heavenly Court — the devil only laughs.
When you understand that the comparison has never been with your neighbor — but with the Almighty, Infinite God of the Universe — you indeed realize, that right from the beginning, you were DEAD.
Avg Guy: I’m confused. To be saved, Paul says I need faith…James says works. Who’s right??
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves fills in at the pulpit to address this apparent contradiction surrounding the Biblical doctrine of justification as he continues his “5 Solas Series.”
And what we’ll find is that when it comes to reading scripture, “first glances,” as one blog author put it, “are not enough.”
Description: Spiritual warfare. It’s a phrase we use. But what does it really mean? …And what do we do about it?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, brother in Christ, David Teves, fills in at the pulpit and digs into these questions by looking at a familiar text, but does so in a way that many churches fail to address — by looking at the context of the letter in which it was written.
Description: In this morning’s passage, John responds to the second of three errors found in this section. All of these errors have to do with a false view of sin. The first error essentially taught that sin doesn’t matter, whereas the second error teaches that sin doesn’t exist. The seriousness of these errors is that it undermines the atonement and robs the Gospel of it’s Good News.
Description: Even thought he was known as “The Teacher of Israel,” Nicodemus has his ignorance and unbelief of the scriptures exposed by Jesus. The truth that Jesus taught to Nicodemus and teaches the world today is “believe”.
Description: Nicodemus, a Jewish religious leader, came to Jesus with questions. As he complemented Jesus and acknowledged His miracles, wisdom, and that He was from God, Jesus challenged him. He told him that he must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God!
Description: Our Redeemer lives. He was victorious over death the grave could not hold Him. Paul presents in 1 Corinthians 15 the facts concerning the resurrection of Christ to those at the church at Cornith.
Description: Paul continues his admonition that we are to be imitators of God. We are to imitate God as we walk in love, walk in light, and walk in wisdom. Paul encourages us to make the most use of our time, literally redeem our time which is one way that we are to walk in wisdom.
