About Preach the Cross.org

Filed under: Observations & Perspectives — Administrator @ 5:41 pm

In addition to the unwavering and complete devotion to the preaching of the Cross; Christ and Him crucified–this ministry is very unique in its approach to studying scripture. Scripture commands us to “bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ”; (2 Corinthians 10:5). What is “the obedience of Christ”? Philippians 2:8 tells us it is Christ’s becoming “obedient unto death, even the death of the Cross”. Thus, we are to likewise bring all thoughts about scripture–reading, studying, interpreting, discussing and, most importantly, teaching–captive to; that is, rooted and fixed upon, the Cross.
If one pictures a target; the “bulls eye” is the preaching of the Cross and the complete Work God did there. The concentric rings which move out away from the bullseye are all other contexts, reasonings, perspectives, and opinions on scripture. Not surprisingly, the bullseye is the one central precept which defines True Christianity, and which all Christians agree upon. It is when we allow our minds to wander away from the bullseye in the wilderness of human reasoning that we begin to encounter divisions and strife. It is out there, in the rings, where Satan operates, and where he is able to pervert the scriptures and muddle one’s thinking. Wisdom and discernment are at the bulls eye.
“…But we preach Christ crucified…the power of God, and the wisdom of God” 1 Corinthians 1:23,24
Why do believers leave that “holy place”?
This ministry brings every thought and utterance captive to the obedience of Christ and, as He did also, to the Work of the Cross. What I will be writing about in my postings are some of the foundational precepts and awesome revelations of scripture which arise from the Cross, and which we stand upon, and which we preach in every home, every forum, every church, and from the mountaintops.

  1. Didn’t God have to become flesh as in [Jesus Christ] as a last chance for humans to gain redemption? If he had not, then no one would have been “saved” hence no one to be in God’s image to join him in his kingdom? He says this is a “gift”, but if he didn’t do it, [become flesh and be crucified], then there would have been no atonement for sin. How then, is this a gift? [note: this comment and some to follow are not meant to be critical, but only searching for valid answers?] In the old testament God stated that he regretted ever creating humans when he realized the inherent evil they were. So, he eventually destroyed all humans, save Noah’s family. Even his “chosen” people who he saved from bondage, still do not believe in Christ until this present day. Also, Christians are required to be humble, yet God himself as always “demanded” worship? We should worship him freely, not because he demands us? One other question? Has God allowed satan to fill the earth’s inhabitants with evil all these millenia because of God’s “schedule”? [not to return yet?] Or is satan too powerful to be stopped since the cross? One last observation? I have noticed, [experienced], that the more one allows God complete control of one’s life, the more one will suffer in this world. Also, if he does have full control, doesn’t that render us as “robots”? Where does the free will come in?
