Our Corrupted Compass?


We take for granted that we can hop on a plane, drive a car, or sail a boat nowadays and go someplace hundreds or thousands of miles away with the confidence that we will find it without any trouble. The age of satellites, computers and GPS, a very hi-tech "compass," has ensured pinpoint accuracy when traversing the expanse of our globe. It’s almost inconceivable that a ship’s crew out of sight of land would end up lost, meandering around not knowing where they are or which bearing they need to make landfall, even in a storm. Despite these advances in scientififc technology, we've lost our theological GPS along the way. As a result, we find ourselves in the midst of a tempest, a Cat 4 societal storm that threatens to crash our nations upon the rocky shores of rebellion and destruction. Is it possible to emerge from this, and once again find our safe harbour?

Christ And The Duality Of The Atonement, The Hijacked Elephant

The duality of the Day of Atonement, both of the old covenant, the flesh, and the new covenant, the Spirit, is referred to in the New Testament Book of Acts. “But those things, which God before had showed by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he has so fulfilled. Repent, therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; and he shall send Jesus Christ [the second time] which before was preached of you …." [quote from the apostle Peter, Acts 3:18-20].

A Life And Death Pickle Of A Predicament

In our Sneakers article, Name Those Tenets, it lists the six basic tenets of Christianity. The sixth one, as the apostle Paul pointed out, is eternal judgement. Eternal judgement takes place at the great resurrection, where all who have lived and are in the grave, are raised from the dead and judged according to their works. This judgement that takes place is a decision to eternal life or eternal death. The predicament we find ourselves in as Christians, with the noticeable emerging beast of Babylon the Great, his image, his mark and the number of his name, 666, all goes back to the simple choice we were given way back when.
