Observing All Things
How much does the Bible get in the way of what you believe? If you’re like most Christians, you believe in Jesus, but you’ve compartmentalised your faith so that your Bible beliefs have only a little influence over other areas of your life. For many, the Bible doesn’t influence what they believe one iota! As long as they claim to believe on Jesus, they think they can believe whatever they want about issues in life and society. That is absolutely wrong! All that this means is they have not been taught to observe all things Jesus commanded:
“Go ye therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” Matthew 28:19–20
You see, a disciple is a person who observes all things Jesus commanded. By and large, the church has not been making disciples. Their goal has basically been “Let’s just get people born again and make sure they’re headed to heaven.” This has caused problems because the church isn’t teaching people to observe all things Jesus commanded, there’s a void in society where Christians ought to be taking a stand. When it comes to social or moral issues, a lot of Christians are silent or oppose what the Bible says.
There’s more to being a disciple than only faith in Jesus. That might sound hard to believe, but that’s exactly what Jesus Himself said. You must continue in His Word to be His disciple; you must observe all things He has commanded.
In this teaching, I share on what I consider to be the three hottest social issues today—homosexuality, abortion, and evolution—and what God’s Word has to say about them. Only the Holy Ghost can bring change to a person’s life, but I think this teaching will help you, so I encourage you to get it. You can get this series in CD or DVD format. It will also come with a booklet that has a commentary as well as statistics and graphs on these three topics. To order, go to store.awmaust.net.au, call our Helpline at +61 7 3177 7681.
