The 10-Yr Old Egg

Posted Apr 2nd 2010, 11:05 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living


Woke from a dream this morning. I'd slept later than I'd expected and the oddity of this dream had something to do with my waking.
In it I'd been to something like a local faire in Wales, a number of locals having their wares out on small tables for the crowds to appreciate. Some tables held clever crafts for sale and others curiosities from the locality. One table, the only one I recalled upon awakening, had a number of strange materials...

"Peer Review" in Reading Your Bible

Posted Mar 11th 2010, 09:20 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living


Hello, everyone! May the Lord bless you during this Easter season with Resurrection Life, Now!
In Em&M Ministries (and KingdomScribes specifically), for years we've taught people simple skills required for accurately interpreting the Scriptures for themselves. On one hand, our emphasis is always that people in the Body of Christ must stop swallowing whole what preachers, teachers and other self-proclaimed "experts" on the Bible are teaching. Any given teaching (or biblical perspective) that you're going to incorporate into your spiritual life...

Humility and Hubris in the Life of the Believer

Posted Aug 28th 2009, 08:12 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living


"Hubris" is such a wonderful word -- it means "excessive pride or self-confidence." In the computer-based tutorial, "Rightly Dividing the Word", we confront the unfortunate reality that every person who reads and interprets the Word of God for themselves, will unconsciously "spin it" according to their own perspectives and expectations. It's impossible that any of us, still in our flesh, can hear the Word of the Lord without needing to take caution against our "tweaking" what we hear in order...

A Wonderful Example of Truth that is "New/Old"

Posted Apr 18th 2009, 01:59 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living


If you've worked your way through our computer-based tutorial, Rightly Dividing the Word, you know our ministry theme verse is found in Matthew's collection of Kingdom parables. One of Jesus' shortest parables is found in Mt. 13.52:
 
Jesus said to them, “That is why every scribe who has become a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a home owner. He brings new and old things out of his treasure chest.” (GWV)
 
I like the GWV (God's Word Version) since it...

Sorry YET AGAIN... Unhappy result with last Easter post...

Posted Apr 8th 2009, 06:49 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living


 InJesus has made recent changes to their message editor and obviously I still haven't been able to figure out all its quirks. But I see the LAST KingdomScribes newsletter came out written in HTML code... (sheeesh...)
So here's the second (and hopefully last) attempt to correct the first post:
Sorry folks -- I've already had some corrections on the second link -- the one to the Easter blogpost on our KingdomScribes blog. Here's the corrected copy or (you might say) the Revised Version... ...

New blog post: Our Easter Heroes -- Bruce, Jackie and Jesus?

Posted Apr 7th 2009, 09:48 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living


Happy Easter, everyone!
Here's a gift for you all, from a cartoonist named Chuck Asay. He has one of the best Easter cartoons I've ever seen, and if you click here, you can see it too!
And we've just posted a new KingdomScribes blog called, "Our Easter Hereos -- Bruce, Jackie and Jesus?" By comparing notes with some of today's "Hollywood hereos", we can see that Jesus "out-hereoed" everyone by the prank He pulled against the devil. After all -- the devil...

Reading and MISreading the Word of God

Posted Mar 18th 2009, 03:10 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living

Consider these three passages:
The Word of God is powerful, especially in its task to help divide that within us which is carnal (the flesh) from that which is if Christ (the Spirit). [Heb 4.12]
Scriptures are so powerful that knowing them can make us wise unto salvation. [2Tim 3.15]
And the Sadducees, in their pitiful attempt to trap Jesus in a theological contradiction, deceived themselves and fell into error because they did not know the Scriptures or the power of God. [Mt...

What are KingdomScribes... Theologically?

Posted Mar 10th 2009, 06:21 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living


Just recently, we've reconnected with friends through Facebook (lots of fun!) Not having interacted in years, one friend asked what what we were, "theologically".
It seemed obvious that our KingdomScribes would benefit from "listening in" on this conversation as we explain "what we are"... In a sense, we recommend that all KingdomScribes share this same "theological" position!
First, joking with him, I wrote I was a "Panmillennialist"... Some of you already know that when it comes to "end-times" theologies, you can be...

Sons of Issachar -- They Knew Their Times?

Posted Mar 4th 2009, 09:46 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living

In 1 Chronicles 12 is a list of tribal families and their men-of-war who joined King David at Hebron, "already equipped for war." Amongst these bands of warriors is specifically mentioned (v. 32) the sons of Issachar who are described as men "who understood their times and knew what Israel should do."
This is a popular verse today amongst Christians, probably driven by the sense that our times are so complicated that nobody "understands" them and nobody legitimately "knows what to...

Will We Ever See the Body of Christ Stand Up?

We want to encourage you all to occasionally check over on our KingdomScribes Blog to scan over some of our previous ministry teachings. They are a great help in the ongoing process of moving out of old, religious paradigms ("old wineskins") into the New Wineskin of the New Wine!
The newest blog post is, "Will We Ever See the Body of Christ Stand Up?" Drawing insight from 1Cor 1-3, we can see that Paul the apostle's message for us today is...

"New Helps..." Resent -- Sorry for Format Problems!

Posted Feb 14th 2009, 06:19 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living

The InJesus newsletter service has recently made major changes to their website -- and we apologize for errors in the newsletter we just sent out... After sending it out, we had to re-open and repair the HTML code since the InJesus WYSIWYG editor made changes that removed active links, triplicated the picture, etc. We hate re-sending email but felt it necessary to make these corrections. Again, we apologize, and as always, ask for the Lord's blessing on all your lives!

I Want New Wine -- But Where Do I Find It?

Posted Sep 25th 2008, 02:57 by KingdomScribes on Christian Living


Do you want the "new wine"? Or maybe it doesn't excite you very much. Especially if you don't really know what it is. But Jesus implies that if you're one of His followers, you're going to want the "new wine".
Yet lots of church-goers could care less. Same thing in Jesus' day. In Luke's version of the "new wine" parable, Jesus adds a warning:
Lk 5.39: And no-one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, "The old is better."
But...
