The Most Powerful Demonstration of the Spirit

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:35

Come Immanuel: God’s Reign of Righteousness

The prophetic quest for “judgment and righteousness” is the quest for fairness and justice upon the earth.  It represents the collective sigh of the oppressed, downtrodden, marginalized and stigmatized.  It echoes throughout history as the voice of the few, brave enough to “do unto others” and to call others to do the same.  It is the essence of hope – the messianic hope - hope that God’s reign of righteousness will finally come upon the earth. 

Oyendo la voz profética: la cuestión de la interpretación

(Traducido por Carlos Enrique Espinosa)

Cuando no logramos dar el debido respeto a las Sagradas Escrituras como una gran colección de obras literarias escritas por diversos autores a lo largo de muchos siglos, producidas en diversas circunstancias y para diversos fines, con diversos puntos de vista, y terminada hace casi dos mil años, cualquier significado que saquemos de ella implica darnos a nosotros mismos un cierto poder que deja al texto en sí incapacitado para decir lo que quiere decir.

Hearing the Prophetic Voice: The Question of Interpretation

When we fail to give due respect to the Sacred Scriptures as a great collection of literary works written many centuries ago over many centuries, written by many different authors in diverse circumstances for diverse purposes, and with diverse points of view, any meaning we take from it signifies an appropriation of power to ourselves that leaves the text itself powerless to say what it means to say.

Freedom to Follow Now

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received, freely give. (Matt. 10:8)

At some point in one’s life, one is likely to be confronted with one’s mortality. Often one may ask: “Have I been all that I should have and could have been? Have I done all I could have done and should have done?” Often, one may find the answer to these questions uncomfortable.

Escuela sabática: Libertad para seguirlo ahora

(Traducido por Carlos Enrique Espinosa)

Sanad enfermos, limpiad leprosos, resucitad muertos, expulsad demonios. De gracia recibisteis, dad de gracia. (Mateo 10:8)

En algún momento en la vida tenemos que hacer frente a la mortalidad. A menudo uno puede preguntar: “¿He sido todo lo que debería y podría haber sido? ¿He hecho todo lo que pude haber hecho y debería haber hecho?” A menudo, se puede encontrar que la respuesta a estas preguntas es incómoda.
