“wayocross definition” of WORSHIP: ascribing in a demonstrative way: value, honor, adoration, fear, to a person or being who holds ascendency over the population that worship them.
“waycross definition” of Christianity: 1) putting into practice the patterns of Jesus such as grace, forgiveness, healing, teaching, loving lost sheep (people) and 2) living sacrificially as if carrying a cross like Jesus.
The “Law of Sin and Death” relies on us to maintain our own individual morality. So we depend on the flesh controlling the flesh. From the outside that may look successful. But it falls short of perfection, which is the standard under the law.
Do our churches draw us to routines or to Christ? If we’re meant to dwell in Christ can any man-made patterns in our worship or our benevolence efforts draw us to Christ or to the attention of men? Who are we meant to please?
I agree that Christianity has played a central role in the history of the United States – because it most certainly has. And it should be taught in our schools and colleges.
all too often Christians do count the cost. The cost of their time, their priorities, their vulnerability, their emotional energy, is too great
A Missionary from Africa comes to the United States and shares with a concerned Christian how he feels the church in America is being deceived and in great danger. The Christian is very convicted by what he hears, makes a significant change in his life, and then sets forth a plan to reach his city with the gospel.
What I wish to bring out is that the all-inclusive clause in the Declaration of Independence that covers everything that’s included in these Amendments to the Constitution.
