The Law of God (2 of 2)

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

Speaking from Psalm 119, Art asks how we can reconcile David’s love for the Law and the commandments with all that we understand as constituting legalism. Could David’s celebration of the Law actually be the gateway for expansive freedom and a deeper knowledge of God?

Paul’s Union with God

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

Paul makes his own experience the pattern for all believers, and that union with the Law Giver is the answer to the question of how we are to be morally guided if we “set aside the Law”, so to speak. A classic message.

Apostolic and Prophetic Foundations

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

As we enter a decade of enormous challenge, uncertainty and shaking, I am assured that the church stands in great need of prophetic and apostolic foundations with men of that calling giving directive voices. How many of us have recognized that we have come to the end of our charismatic, pentecostal and evangelical tethers? Do we have a sense that there is a further dimension which eclipses all that we have known and had hoped in, but we do not know how to identify, or even find it?

In view of Leviticus 17:11, ought we not, as Jews, to consider that, “without the shedding of blood there is no remission for sin”?

Mt. Sinai versus the Cross of Christ

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

God’s revelation of Himself and the giving of the Law at Sinai was a history-shaping occurrence. However, in our insistence upon confining Him to Sinai, are we not again guilty of limiting the Holy One of Israel? Should our well-meaning defending of His Name and interests be founded solely on this revelation? Why refuse to think of Him other than in images that are convenient or congruent to our life-style? This would be the ultimate idolatry, ironically, in the name of rejecting idolatry!

The Life and the Law

Sunday, March 2nd, 2008

Art explores the basis for our relationship with God: regulations and requiring laws, or, in the light God’s mercy, to prove what the perfect, acceptable will of God is in any given moment.

The Law and the Commandments

We have not understood the absoluteness of the moral requirements of God.

Righteousness in the Old Testament

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

Righteousness as understood in the OT (Old Testament) is a thoroughly Hebraic concept, foreign to the western mind and at variance with the common understanding of the term. The failure to comprehend its meaning is perhaps most responsible for the view of OT religion as “legalistic”…but thanks largely to recent German scholarship, this important motif of biblical faith has been clarified.
