Compatibility of faith and reason (2)
• For those who do not believe in God, no explanation is possible.
God demonstrated His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
The word of the cross is folly to those who do not believe; but for those of us who do believe, it is the power of God.
It’s not conservative or liberal, however they’re defined;
It’s not about interpretation, or the judgement of the mind;
It’s the opposite of politics, power or prestige;
It’s about a simple message and whether we believe.
We can decide to water down theology and also preach a word to suit our needs.
We can justify sweet subtle lies that are wrapped in noble deeds.
We can alter our convictions to adapt to social whims.
But we cannot change the gospel and neither can we change the truth contained within.
Though some may say it’s man’s religion, or ancient history, the cross of Jesus still remains the price for sin that sets us free.
It’s still the cross; it’s still the blood of Calvary that cleanses sins and sets the captives free.
It is still the name, the name of Jesus that has the power to save the lost.
It is still the power of the Cross.
