This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship!

We arrive at chapter 3 where Ruth being encouraged by Naomi, lies at the feet of Boaz. This single action was carried out in the hope that he consents, and passes on Elimelech’s (her father-in-law) inheritance to her through marriage.

On the issue of consent, this week we were told by experts that girls ‘aren’t strong enough to say no’ to sexual bullying, and that ‘widespread’ sexual harassment and violence has become acceptable in schools in the UK.

That aside, research shows that most ‘single’ church going Christians are sexually active. Some reports even highlight that singles are more sexually active than married Christians. 

Interestingly, most of these casual encounters are with non-Christian acquaintances.

Rather than pretend all is well as its normally the case, how does the church deal with sex and relationships in postmodern times? Bearing in mind that in the time of our Lord, a woman could marry at the age of twelve, and polygamy was part of the social construct to deal with deaths, inheritance, gender ratio imbalances, poverty etc; and the fact that we are living in more prosperous times, in which women have more rights.

So, this Sunday I will be looking at how the Bible defines relationship. 
Questions include: what is marriage, what is adultery, what is fornication; and how did Roman Catholicism hijack a neo-Judaistic movement (Christianity), and shifted these definitions to fit with Western and in some cases, pagan values. 

This book poses tough questions to the thinking Christian. It also provides ideas for contextualisation of our faith in our time.

So join us on this epic journey into purpose, meaning and destiny.

Spiritual Intelligence: Breaking The Silence

These things you have done, and I kept silent; you thought that I was altogether like you; but I will rebuke you, and set them in order before your eyes. “Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver: whoever offers praise glorifies Me; and to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God

Good morning friends. Oftentimes the patience of God is grossly misunderstood by most of us; as a result, we treat his silence or inaction as consent. We assume God understands our “unique” situation, and because we are so special, He has bent the rules somewhat to accommodate us. This is an error, and the consequences can be devastating. On the contrary, we need to step up to His standards by coming to the realisation that His patience towards humanity is a token of His love. He gives us time in the hope that we wake up from our slumber, align our lives to His purpose, take our stand and play our part in the expansion of His Kingdom.

In Paul’s letter to friends in Rome, he tries to contend with this mindset with this rhetorical question:

Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

So dear friends, silence does not always mean consent. In fact, every now and then He breaks the silence with a note of caution, like the one you are reading right now. And He does it in the hope that we change our ways, receive forgiveness, and adopt a healthier lifestyle. In the hope that we stop living selfishly, and start living selflessly. For ultimately, even if we escape death, there is still a day of reckoning on the horizon… That day my friends is the point of no return.
