Jottings – The Blood of Christ in The Presence of God

““


Real purity of walk will always be founded on the full assurance which the blood of Christ in the presence of God gives to our souls, and which we behold as having perfectly satisfied God about sin.

1 Corinthians 5:6-8 Churches Should Be Pure

 

 

“Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:6-8 KJV

 

Does it really matter if one member of a church commits a moral sin? Surely as long as most people are ok, the church is ok. That is not what the Bible teaches.

Watch this one to see how one person’s sin can affect a whole church.

Book Review: Look Straight Ahead

Look Straight Ahead - A Call To Men For Moral Purity

People face many temptations, especially in the area of moral purity. One of the most appealing lures to the fallen flesh is sexual lust. Pornography has become increasingly brazen, readily visible to the unguarded eye of one who is not even seeking it. It has become one of the most successful weapons against the child of God. Our church families are plagued with failed marriages as the enemy has rushed in to ruin the testimony of the saints. There has been casualties among public leaders, the last to be suspected of such moral sin. This all-too-common tragedy has burdened my heart to exhort and encourage men, in particular, to echo the plea of the psalmist as he stood before his Lord and cried out, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me,” Psalm 51:10

The book is a heart felt plea to the men of the church to intentionally live a life of moral purity. This is a timely book, dealing with a major issue in the church that few others are willing to address.

The author rightly recognizes the sin of pornography as a powerful
