2013 August 28 - Morning Manna

Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever (Hebrews 13:8).
Today's Morsel: Why does it seem that the church is trying to keep pace with the world? Many are changing their church schedules, music, teachings, and even preaching trying to stay in tempo with the world. Isn't Jesus the head of the church? Isn't the Holy Ghost its power and the Word its guide? If Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, why do we keep changing? Why are we writing new Bibles, doesn't the one I have now still serve its purpose? I was told not to add to nor take away from the Word of God. Why are we trying to adapt our Sunday Schools to the way kids are taught at secular school? Didn't Jesus tell us, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen" (Matthew 28:19-20). Shouldn't kids be exposed to God's ways? As Paul told the church at Galatia: "O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh" (Galatians 3:1-3)? And as he told the church at Colossi: "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power" (Colossians 2:8-10). Since Jesus doesn't change, I think I'll just remain old school, in faith, hope, love, doctrine and the Word.
Sing:There's just one, one, one, one way to God (3x), baptized in Jesus Name!
