Postmodern Traditions

How does the Bible come out of the ancient world and speak authoritatively to us today?  Keeping with traditions, postmodern or new traditions and those from the ancient world are blunting the Scriptures.  Just how are liberalism and the commandments of men moving into the church?  As true followers, how can we stay centered on the World of God? Just what is some of the verbiage we are hearing today that proves this out?  We need the authority of the Bible to address modern culture.   

   Mk 7:5-7

Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you hypocrites, as it is written:

‘This people honors Me with their lips,

But their heart is far from Me.

7     And in vain they worship Me,

Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

Left Behind?  Ever heard about missing pieces of scripture from certain translations of the Bible?   Today, we will look at textual criticism… don’t be afraid, it’s most like you have heard the definition without hearing the term. Here’s the definition: the technique of restoring the biblical writings or manuscripts to their best possible original form. Men have been doing this for thousands of years.  Dr Nichols will look at one of these missing pieces in Mark 16:9-18.

You can learn more about Textual Criticism here.

Inspiration and infallibility are two terms we use when discussing bible doctrine.  But what of the authority that scripture carries as we read it today?  The Word of God has been translated, from Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic and translation can be done different ways.  We’ll explore this and more in today’s Podcast.

Over the course of 1500 years, 40 authors give to us this bible record.  This is part two in our series: The doctrine of the Bible.  Two words come to mind when we look at the doctrine of the Bible, infallible and inerrant. What do these words mean?  Today’s encounter with the Word of God will bring some new thoughts to some old problems.

The Doctrine of the Bible (Ep 111)
Recorded 3.14.22
Dr David Nichols & Rev Pete Couper

God’s Words in written form (the Bible) and God’s words of decree, God’s words of personal address, and God’s words spoken through the lips of human beings, we find in Scripture; God’s words were put in written form. The first of these is found in the narrative of the giving of the two tablets of stone on which were written the Ten Commandments: “And he gave to Moses, when he had made an end of speaking with him upon Mount Sinai, the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God” (Ex. 31:18). “And the tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tablets” (Ex. 32:16; 34:1, 28).  Interesting right? Over the course of 1500 years, 40 authors give to us this bible record.  This is part one in our series: The doctrine of the Bible.

Fire of God (Part 2, Ep 127)

Fire of God (Part 2, Ep 127)

(Ep 127)
Recorded 6.8.22
Rev Pete Couper
Psalms 104:4

Ministers a Flame of Fire

The word for "flaming" here is Hebrew: lahat (H3857), to blaze or set on fire. The word is used of the flaming sword of the cherubim who guarded the way of the tree of life (Gen. 3:24); of the wicked being burned up at Armageddon (Mal. 4:1); of fire burning the wicked rebels in Israel (Ps. 106:18); of a flame burning up trees (Ps. 83:14; Joel 1:19); of hell fire punishing the wicked (Dt. 32:22); of bitter anger speaking forth (Ps. 57:4); of bitter anger in battle (Isa. 42:25); and of the fury of Satan (Job 41:21). It can be seen from these uses that God's ministers being a flame of fire means that they are to be so full of zeal and the anointing of the Spirit that nothing can stand before them (Jn. 2:17). Those in ministry are to have absolute authority and power over all the works of the devil (Mt. 18:18; Mk. 16:17-18 Lk. 10:19; 24:49; Jn. 14:12-15 Acts 1:4-8 1Cor. 4:20; 12:4-8) and represent God among men, as exemplified by Christ, the apostles and early believers.

Rev Pete Couper
1 Peter 1:6-7

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,

“Why do Christians call down the ‘fire of God’”?  This was a question asked to me by Jesus. In the natural fire separates all the foreign and impure materials from gold, this is called refining. In the supernatural the fire of God brings forth genuine faith proved by trials, it exposes rewards men will have in the eternal kingdom, it exposes the genuineness of your faith.  The “fire of God” releases praise, honor, and glory to our Father in heaven, it releases a love for God and an inexpressible joy.  It allows for us to receive your salvation and reveal the rewards of heaven (Mt 16:27; 25:21, 23), though there is more, it increases your belief (Pt 1:8).

The Trinity (Ep 125)

The Trinity (Ep 125)

(Ep 125)
Recorded 6.2.22
Rev Pete Couper

What we mean by Trinity is that there are three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead.  Even though separate, they are one and have assigned tasks! There are many fallacies written about the Trinity, however why would God tell us that all invisible things are clearly seen by visible things on earth, even to His eternal power and Godhead (Rom. 1:20), if He is incomprehensible; if there is nothing on earth to resemble Him; if He is a bodiless being; if He is three beings in one being; if His image is only moral and spiritual; if descriptions of His body and physical parts are not true and real; and if He is an invisible nothingness floating in nowhere? If this is what God is, why did He not say this instead of what He did say? Is it possible that He does not speak to us in plain human language? Or, is it more reasonable that the church and false religions are in error and that God does mean what He says about Himself?

Kenosis (Ep 124)

(Ep 124)
Recorded 6.1.22
Rev Pete Couper
Lk 2:52

Kenosis, to self-empty.  GK Kenoo, to make empty, neutralize, to deprive of force.  Christ empties Himself and becomes endued with power by being filled with the Holy Spirit.  Jesus limited Himself, He retains His divine nature, but limited Himself to human attributes and powers during His time here on earth.  Stepping out of heaven so that He could be a true example of a sinless human being overcoming sin and being anointed with he Spirit to defeat Satan.  Jesus’ power comes by the Spirit, so does yours.  You overcome by the power of the Spirit, by the word of your testimony, by the blood of the Lamb, not by your human attributes and physical power.  Jesus proves to men that by the same Spirit baptism they could do His works and MORE, as He promised (Jn 14:12; Mk 16:15-20, Mt 18:18).  What can these Scriptures mean if they cannot do what He says they can do?! 

Blessings….
