The Culture of Christ: "We Love"

Randy Christian

Jesus said people would know we belong to Him because of our love for one another.  Understandable when you remember that John said the very nature of God is love.  Of course, that bets a question.  What love?  Whose definition of love?  What exactly are we commanded to do?  Whether our spouse, a neighbor, a friend or an enemy, this commands pretty much covers how we respond to everyone, so it is important for us to understand what Christians do when we say “we love”.

YOLO: One Flesh

February 24, 2013Randy Christian

For most people, marriage is a defining part of their life. Certainly it could be said that our decision to marry or not is one of our biggest decisions in life. And when we do marry, how will we live together? The Bible says the two become one flesh. How do we do that? A married man, Peter didn’t just speak from his own experience-he gave us the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Perhaps one of the biggest needs of people in our society is how to live as one flesh.

Una Sola Carne
Para la mayoría de personas, el matrimonio es algo muy crucial en sus vidas. Ciertamente se podría decir que la decisión de casarse o no es una de las decisiones mas grandes en la vida. Y cuando se casan, ¿cómo vivirán juntos? La Biblia dice que los dos se hacen una sola carne. ¿Cómo hacemos eso? Peter, un hombre casado, no sólo hablaba por su propia experiencia, nos dio una guía por medio del Espíritu Santo. Quizás una de las mayores necesidades de la gente en nuestra sociedad es aprender a cómo vivir como una sola carne.

WHY BE NORMAL? Marriage

October 14, 2012Randy Christian

The difference between the world and the church on the subject of marriage is so great today that the first thing a preacher has to do is define what marriage is. The temptation to go with the world’s definition—and its attitudes and practices—is huge. But the world’s success rate isn’t very inspiring. Are we any different?
