  • The Bible is second in importance to God

    “You refer to the Bible as the ‘penultimate authority.’ Doesn’t that lessen its authority?” — Katrina

    Christian faith holds that one God above all gods is ultimate authority (Ex. 20:3; Deut. 6:4). The eternal, sovereign Creator (1 Ti. 1:17), transcending time and space, He is the supreme, ontological ground of being (Is. 40:21-26, 28).
    The faith also contends that God has a message for humans. Referred to by the Greek word kerygma (which means “preaching”, Lk. 4:18-19; Ro. 10:14; Mt. 3:1), this message is that God has made a way, through the life and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, to rescue a broken humanity that cannot save itself.
    In place since before the beginning of time, this message is the expression of God’s heart and purpose for His creation (Eph. 1:3-12). It is the essence of the holy, just, gracious, merciful God. It is for this reason that creation itself and all eternity venerate the living, loving God (Lk. 19:40; Rev. 7:9-12).

  • Bible answers: What the Bible says about daily work

    “How does the Bible help me think about my job right now?” — John

    The Bible may not refer to your particular job, but it does have some important things to say about work.
    First, the Bible shows that work is right and good and not a curse. It mentions teachers, soldiers, physicians, construction workers, and scientists (perhaps that term is just a bit of a stretch: the magi in Mt. 2:1ff specialized in astronomy, astrology, and natural science.) Jesus was a carpenter; His followers were working men. Paul, the missionary, made tents for a living (Acts 18:3).
    Scripture does not elevate “sacred” over “secular” occupations. Jesus was certainly not a religious professional. Being a Christian does not mean you may do only religious work. Indeed, God calls you to your work and wants you to continue doing it well (I Cor. 7:20-24). It is how you provide for your family (I Tim. 5:8).
    Daily work is, in a sense, participation with God in His creative activity in the world.
    The significance of your work is based in the teaching that humans are created in the image of an active, creative God (Gen. 1:26ff).
    As such, you are a free, responsible person who is capable of leaving the world better than it was when you entered it (II Thess. 3:7-13).

    Passover observance to be celebrated April 2

    Passover, or Pesach, is the first of the major Jewish festivals mentioned in the Bible. Passover celebrates God freeing the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt — a story told in the book of Exodus. Each year, families gather to retell the story of their deliverance to pass along its message of hope, redemption and faith to their children.
    The observance of the Last Supper Seder will be 6:30 p.m. April 2 at The Christian Church, 92 East Road.
    The observance will be a family-oriented dinner and celebration, which places special emphasis on Jesus’ use of the elements from the Passover meal to inaugurate the commemoration of His sacrifice. Patrons are encouraged to bring a Passover themed main dish and salad or dessert. However, the items should be in keeping with Paschal regulations. There are only two basic restrictions: (1) No Pork, (2) No Leaven. Googling “seder or passover recipes” should offer plenty of ideas. The church will provide drinks, paper supplies and the special meal elements used in celebrating the Passover.
    A sign up list will be in the church’s foyer, or can call 662-6468 or send an email to thechristianchurch@msn.com to RSVP.

    Church auction to help build homes in Mexico

    During spring break of 2014, the United Church of Los Alamos and the Unitarian Church sent campers to Mexico to build homes for the poor.
