  • Bible Answers: Explaining who Apostle the Paul was

    “Who was the Apostle Paul?” — Barbara  

    Readers of the New Testament often quote this man, for which there is good reason.  Thirteen of his letters written to first-century churches and Christians comprise almost half of the New Testament.
    We have glimpses of Paul’s story scattered throughout his writings. He was a Jew from the Asia Minor city of Tarsus (Acts 9:11; 22:3). Because of his Roman parentage, he was a citizen of the empire (Acts 22:25) and well educated.
    Devout in his faith, Paul zealously persecuted the new sect devoted to Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 8:1-3; Gal. 1:13-14). This sect, first called “Christian” in Antioch (Acts 11:26), was winning many converts and posed a threat to Jewish stability and way of life (Acts 4:1-7; 5:17, 33-40; 17:5-8).
    Paul never tired of describing his conversion to faith in Christ. Three accounts of his experience appear in the book of Acts alone (9:3ff; 22:6ff; 26:13ff). Following a dramatic personal encounter with the risen Jesus, Paul did an about face and became an ardent evangelist and church planter. Much of his ministry consisted of strengthening and encouraging the churches with which he was associated (Acts 14:22; 15:32, 41; 16:3; passim).  His letters contain both theological teaching and ethical instruction.

  • White Rock church volunteers help build homes

     

     

    Volunteers from White Rock Presbyterian Church (WRPC) worked with members of the House of Fellowship (HOF) church near Gallup over the Columbus Day weekend to work on houses for two families of the HOF. The House of Fellowship is a Navajo church ministering to the needs of the people in their community.

    The two churches have a long-standing relationship, with groups from each church visiting the other regularly. Jennifer Holmes, of WRPC, says of the relationship that, “the House of Fellowship community has helped WRPC with fundraisers, maintenance, and administering the Julie’s Helpers Scholarship Fund so this trip was an opportunity for us to give back. The enduring relationship between the two groups helps us to grow, understand and appreciate each other’s culture.”

  • Angry at God for the tragedies of the world

     

    “Are we allowed to get angry at God for allowing tragedy to happen?” — David 

     

    Is God the source of tragedy? We don’t want to think so. We perceive of Him as ultimate love and thus the very one who protects us from tragedy. 

    Our anger arises when we are certain that a sovereign God could have stopped a terrible event and when we are also pretty sure there can be no good purpose for it.

  • There are no various levels of sin

     

    “Are there some sins worse than others?”

     

    To state the painfully obvious: all sin is sin. As we have seen, sin is a state of rebellion against God. It is a falling short of His holiness and perfection. It is continually choosing self over God; that is, making self one’s own god. In this sense, all humans are sinners and all sins are offensive to God (Rom. 1-3). This fact is why we ought to be very hesitant to point out the sins of others as if they are worse than we are (and/or that we are somehow superior.)
