what's cultural, what's timeless

Authentic Christ-followers live counter-culturally, a lifestyle that is biblical.
But, what in the Bible is timeless?
What was cultural?
There is a simple way to discove what in the Bible was cultural and so temporary,
as well as what was divine revelation and so timeless? ~

In the New Testament church prophecy was welcomed and encouraged.
In the church today prophecy is often ignored or abused.
It frightens people.
How should prophecy be handled? ~

The greatest thing is love.
Western culture acknowledges love to be the most powerful thing.
Writers from Dostoevsky & Tolstoy to C.S. Lewis & J.K. Rowling agree,
as do film makers, artists, politicians and activists.
An intense look at the apostle Paul’s clear, challenging and counter-cultural
definition of love ~

Spiritual gifts inventories are popular, but inherently faulty.
Because the Holy Spirit continuously and creatively empowers Christ-followers to
build up the Body of Christ ~

The apostle Paul gave some pretty clear instruction on what should happen when 1stCentury
Christ-followers gathered in Jesus’ name.
What he described doesn’t resemble what happens in most churches today.
What should happen in church?
And why? ~

When followers of Jesus gather together they gain access to
the power of the Holy Spirit.
But Spirit power doesn’t result from our human capabilities,
it comes via our weakness—even our fear.
The Holy Spirit empowers us to be agents of hope out in their world. ~
