Are you lost?

In the Gospel of Luke chapter 15 (the parables of the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin and the Prodigal Sons) we learn that God only sees two sorts of people – those who are lost (estranged from him) and those who were formerly lost but are now back in relationship with him.

Guest speaker, David Cook explains that God is waiting with outstretched arms, seeking to welcome back the lost. David invites anyone who is lost to echo the prayer that is in verse 18 saying to God “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me part of your family”.

How can the Bible be from men but also from God?

How is it that the Bible arrives in the form we have it?

The Apostle Paul, along with Timothy, writing to the church in Thessalonica said:

‘we thank God continually because when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe’                                       (1 Thessalonians 2:13)

The word received, was handled down by God through those who had first heard it and their job was to tell others.

Of course that begs the question – how can the Bible be from men but really from God? How can we be sure that humans who spoke and wrote actually have the spoken and written word that God wanted them to express?
