President-Goodluck-JonathanPresident Goodluck Jonathan may be heading for a showdown with former military dictator, Gen Ibrahim Babangida, and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar over the candidacy of former Osun State Governor Olagunsoye Oyinlola for the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party.

On Sunday revealed that while Jonathan was to be in league with some powerful interest in the South-West to support another candidate, the desire of Oyinlola, the former military governor of Lagos State, is said to be causing ripples in the party.

Oyinlola is said to have the backing of Babangida and Atiku, two prominent PDP leaders, who tried in 2011 to displace Jonathan as the party’s candidate for the presidential election.

Oyinlola came to the party’s headquarters on Thursday to submit his form for the position, but was turned back on the grounds that the submission of forms had closed.

Investigations, however, revealed that Oyinlola’s backers had mounted pressure on the party’s National Working Committee to accept the former governor’s form.

It was gathered that the South West PDP was piqued by Oyinlola’s entry into the race in spite of its decision that none of the former governors should contest the party’s offices for now.

A leader of the party, who pleaded anonymity, said, “We all know those who are in the race. We have penciled down two former ministers – Prof. Tunde Adeniran and Chief Ebenezer Babatope – as well as the National Legal Adviser of the party, Chief Olusola Oke.

“Oyinlola himself is aware of this. The President is aware of our position and he is supporting us. You will recall that none of the former governors was appointed as a minister by Jonathan. We learnt that Oyinlola sneaked to his friends, governors, and Babangida, who was his boss in the army. It is these people that want to pick our candidate for us.”

The PDP chief, who explained the South-West’s position, said, “These former governors were responsible for the death of the party in the zone.

“If we want the PDP to regain its lost glory in Yorubaland, these people should take back seats in the party for now. They cannot launder the image of the PDP in the South West.”

Investigations revealed that Oyinlola was convinced by Babangida, Atiku and some governors to join the race as part of moves to spite the President.

It was gathered that with the chances of Tukur looking bright as a chairmanship candidate, the IBB group reasoned that they needed a person they could trust as National Secretary.

A member of the PDP’s NWC, who pleaded anonymity said, “You know Jonathan has not hidden his support for Tukur. IBB, Atiku and some governors chose Oyinlola, who they think they can trust to check the Jonathan man (Tukur) in the next NWC.”

When contacted, Oyinlola denied that he was being sponsored by IBB and Atiku. He, however, confirmed that he had the backing of the governors.

Oyinlola, in a statement by his media aide, Ayo Olaiya, said as an ex-governor, “There is nothing wrong if the Governor’s Forum throws its weight behind his aspiration.”

He said, “The talk about Oyinlola being a candidate of some powerful elements in the North is sheer blackmail. Politics should be without bitterness. Why run a fellow party man down because of your own ambition?”

He added that the PDP remained a formidable national party ready to attain political power legitimately during elections, stressing that his ambition would not scuttle the interest of the South West within the PDP.

But a group within the party, Osun PDP Patriots, criticised the former governor for his ambition.

The group’s spokesperson, Dr. Segun Oyinloye, in an interview with one of our correspondents, alleged that the contest for the post of PDP National Secretary should not be manipulated.

Oyinloye said, “Only those that collected forms for the post should be allowed to run. Nobody should be imposed on the party because it will affect the fortunes of the party in the South West.”

Do you know your role as a husband

A woman once said, Every man needs a wife because many things go wrong in life that he can’t blame on the government.” Jokes like that are common today. While they provide most of us with a good laugh, they subtly speak of a sad reality in many homes – that men are do not know the role of the husband and their not leaders and examples of Godly conduct that their families and communities need.

It has been estimated that men make up:

  • 99% of those sitting on death row,
  • 95% of those filling all other prison beds
  • 90% of those responsible for child and spouse abuse
  • 98% of those wanted as drug dealers
  • 91%  of those convicted of drunken driving
  • 75%  of those who cause traffic accidents

Those statistics are startling and tragic! when one thinks of destruction shed abroad by the hand of mankind, it is easy to become cynical and contemplate becoming a card-carrying member of a feminist organization.

There is, however, a hidden reality these statistics point to that can produce hope.  That is the power that many men use for evil, conversely, is capable of profound good. We man must understand the role of a husband and the awesome power given to us that can be harnessed and used in the manner designed by our Creator.

God has given the husband and the wife roles that after different but equal. He has no superiority; she has no inferiority (check out Gods Blueprint). Galatians 3:28 says the different roles of headship and submission are purely functional and ordained by a loving ,wise God.

One might wonder what the role of the husband and wife are and why they have different roles. If the husband and wife are truly equal,  why was it that God chose different roles for them?  Was it merely arbitrary, or was there good reason for each to be assigned the role given them?

Answers for these questions exist and are found in Genesis 3.

battle-of-the-sexes

The origin of the battle of the sexes dates back Adam and ever and their sin, Adam and Eve experienced different consequences; their sin affected them each in distinct and unique manner. The roles assigned to them by God serve the purpose of countering and healing these consequences.
Loving headship and willing submission are the means of regaining the marital harmony caused by Adam and Eve’s disobedience.
These differing consequences are summed up in God’s statement to Eve:

The origin of the battle of the sexes

“Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you” (Genesis 3:16).

  • Eve and women. “Desire” in Genesis 3:16 does not refer to sexual or loving romantic desire, but rather, to a desire to “seek control over.” As a result of Eve’s disobedience, she will experience a toxic desire to usurp the authority of her husband. Chaucer, in his classic, Canterbury Tales, gives us a clear picture of female control as he presents the women of The Queen’s Court agreeing together that what women want most of all is to dominate their men. God’s remedy for women’s condition is submission. It is through Submission that the balance and harmony of marriage is regained.
  • Adam and men. As a result of Adam’s own disobedience, he will experience a desire to “rule over” his wife (Genesis 3:16). The Hebrew word for “rule” is not the word used in Genesis 1:28. There it has a positive context. Here, “rule” represents a new, despotic type of authoritarianism contrary to God’s original design. Adam, and men for countless generations after him, would feel and act out a sinful desire to dominate women. History, unfortunately, is rife with examples of the subjugation of women.

Needless to say, these are not examples of the God Ordained patter of male headship. They demonstrate the pervasive effects the Fall has had on men throughout the centuries.

God’s remedy for The Role Of The Husband is loving headship as modeled by Christ’s loving headship of the Church. It is through loving headship that the balance and harmony of marriage is regained.

The Origin Of The Battle Of The Sexes -Pastor Kirt Eure

Gods Blueprint
Gods Blueprint

No Biblical understanding of the role of the husband in marriage can ignore Paul’s admonitions found in Gods Blueprint Ephesians 5:21-33.  Unfortunately, these verses have, in recent decades, been more akin to a powder keg than the comforting beacon of light which Paul intended.

Ephesians 5, for some, has been a text exploited to keep women in a position of subservience.  For others, it has been a text to rebel against, seeing the author as little more than a male-chauvinist.

Many Churches have avoided teaching on this passage due to the inherent controversy. As a result, many believers are unfamiliar with Paul’s teaching of  Gods Blueprint , consequently, find it hard to accept.

At first glance, the passage appears to support an unhealthy view of marital relations which offends our “modern” sensibilities. A detailed study, however, reveals an ingenious synergy and complementarity in the roles of husband and wife that could only find its origin in the mind of God.

Gods Blueprint Ephesians 5:21-33 – By Pastor Kirt Eure

The Index of leading cultural indicators, published by Heritage Foundation, demonstrates that the practice of sacrificial living as outlined in the New Testament is a fading reality. Over the last three decades in the United States:

  • The marriage rate has declined by half
  • The divorce rate has more than doubled
  • The percentage of children with single mothers has nearly tripled.
  • The number of births to unwed mothers has quintupled.

Statistics such as these are evidence of the consequences of neglecting the Jesus-ordained pattern of submission, one to another.

Pastor Kirt Eure – w36gkzjsc9

What Headship Is NotAs important as the principle of mutual submission is, it is vital the we do not read into it a meaning that Paul did not intend.  Some have squeezed out the Ephesians 5:21 an interpretation that eliminates any distinction in the roles of husband and wife. Such a meaning is not consistent with the verses that follow. Paul states in Ephesians 5:23 , “the husband is to be head of the wife.”

What Headship Is Not:

1. Superiority.  A survey of history reveals a pattern of male subjugation of women that is shameful. Marcius Cato, the famous Roman statesman living in the second century B.C , wrote, “If you catch  your wife in the act of infidelity, you can kill her without trial. But if she were to catch you, she would not venture to touch you with her finger.

She has no rights.”  Even in our liberated culture, women are frequently seen as mere sex objects – another position of inferiority. What a contrast to Paul’s direction given to husbands in Ephesians 5!

Paul’s admonition that husbands and wives be submissive, “one to another” is our first clue that Biblical headship does not involve the husband being in a superior position to the wife. Furthermore, Scripture makes the equality of all believers quite clear, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).

There are no classifications of Christians, neither are there differing ranks. Every believer has equal standing before God. We all have the same regenerated nature, the completeness of the Holy Spirit, and the same divine resources..  As someone aptly said, “The Ground at the foot of the cross is level. ”

The husband that has relinquished this role as head of the home is, more often that not, the husband that complains bitterly about his wife’s nagging. He might refer to himself as a “hen-pecked husband.” For some women, nagging serves the function of feeling superior. For others, however , nagging is an attempt to repeat their husband in the place of authority in the home.

They long to feel the security and comfort resultant from a husband who lovingly leads his family through the ups and downs of life.

Husbands again taking up the standard of leadership in the home is vital. Dr. James Dobson says it strongly, ” Our very survival as a nation will depend on the presence or absence of masculine leadership in the home.”

submission

Headship is Responsibility, Detrich Bonhoeffer, the German theologian who died in the struggle against Hitler, said it eloquently in his 1943, “Wedding Sermon from a prison Cell. ” “As the head, it is he who is responsible for the wife, for their marriage, and for their home.

On him falls the care and protection of the family; he represents it to the outside world; he is its mainstay and comfort; he is the master of the house, who exhorts, punishes, helps, and comforts, and stands for it before God.” To the husband falls the tremendous responsibility of standing on his family’s behalf before God. No one can accomplish this feat on this own. One must be dependent upon God’s empowerment to achieve success.

What Headship is?  headship is Authority through Service. An exhaustive study has shown that no woman has ever shot her husband while he was doing the dishes.

Paul’s admonition is that husbands “Love your wife’s just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for he” (Eph 5:25). There is no room for egoism, selfishness, control , manipulation, or domination in this kind of love.

Leadership Through Servanthood

What is Leadership through Servanthood? One might ask “What does loving through service mean in practical terms?” It means that a husband is loving his wife when he: goes shopping with her (and doesn’t’ grumble about it), changes the light bulbs in the house when they go out, makes up the bed, leaves her notes and cards communicating his love and appreciation of her, meets her at the door when she comes home, asks her if he can get her anything from the kitchen when he gets up to fill his own glass while they watch their favorite television show, willingly goes to a movie she likes, puts the toilet seat down and replaces the toilet paper , trims the hedges and keeps the yard neat , … get the Idea?

In John 13, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and in so doing, taught us the true meaning of leadership through servant hood.  “Husband, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it” Ephesians 5:25

Leadership Through Servanthhood – Part 1

Leadership Through Servanthood
Leadership Through Servanthood

Paul says that Jesus “cleansed by the washing of the word.” (Eph 5:26). The parallel for husbands is that they are responsible for the spiritual direction and well-being of the home.

Marriage counselors hear frequently that one of a wife’s greatest desires is for her husband to initiate regular times of devotions and prayer in the family. For many men , doing so is tragically difficult.

Whatever the reason, whether it is apathy, pride, or insecurity, husbands need to overcome their resistances and spiritually lead their families.

Leadership Through Servanthood

Paul says that Christ cared for the church in such a manner that it “should be holy and blameless” (Ephesians 5:27).  Just as Christ would never do anything that would compromise the integrity of His bride (the church), so husbands should always behave in a manner that promotes their wives’ holiness before God.

It is quite common today for men to cajole their wives into viewing pornography or going to “strip clubs” as a means of “sprucing up their sex life.”  Sadly, many secular marriage therapy texts see this as a legitimate technique to increase sexual intimacy in marriage. Christian marriage counselors find that many who would describe themselves as believers engage in similar activity.

Husbands leading their wives in such behavior is only one example of how they contribute to their wives defilement. Husbands that flirt with other women also contribute to their wives’ defilement.

The wife, feeling neglected and lonely, may seek solace in some unhealthy way: overeating, substance abuse, or an extra marital relationship of their own. It is the wise husband that remembers that ” If he refuses to be the husband God called him to be, Satan has someone who will.”

The husband wields tremendous power, power that, on one hand, can result in great love and devotion, and, on the other , can produce generations of pain and suffering. Husbands must make a choice regarding the type of legacy they want to leave.

The writer of Deuteronomy said it best, “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live”  (Deuteronomy 30:19)

REQUIREMENTS FOR LEADERSHIP

What are the Requirements for Leadership? 1 Timothy 3:1-7 “This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.  (2) A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach; (3) Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; (4)One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; (5) (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?) (6) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. (7) Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.”

The Greek word for bishop “episkopos” literally means an overseer, and comes from the word “skopeo” which means to “look” or “watch” (Philippians 1:1, I timothy 3:2,  Titus 1:7 and I Peter 2:25).  The word for elder (presbuteros) is another term for bishop or overseer, except it indeicats a more mature spiritual experience and understand for those so described (Acts 20:17).  According to divine will and appointment,  there were to be elders  in every New Testament church (Acts 14:24, 20:17, Titus 1:5, James 5:14).

Requirements for Leadership in I Timothy 3:1-7 gives us sixteen qualifications of an overseer, and it would be a great asset to the church if these qualifications were held , not only by ordained ministers, but all lay leaders in the church. The sixteen qualifications are outlined as followed.

Requirements for Leadership:

1.  BLAMELESS - Describing conduct as one who is honest and cannot be justly accused.

2.  HUSBAND OF ONE WIFEHe is not a polygamist

3.  VIGILANT - Alert to dangers of all sorts that would hinder his Christian life , his influence on the church

4.  SOBER - Of sound mind, discreet, prudent , moderate, temperate of self controlled.

5.  OF GOOD BEHAVIOR - Not a trouble maker, not mischievous or a sower of discord or dissension.

6.   HOSPITABLEA warm and open welcome to strangers, having an open door and open heart for others

7.   APT TO TEACH - Capable of giving instruction and guidance in Scriptural principles.

8.  NOT GIVE TO WINENot frequenting wine, wine has no draw or hold on him.

9.  NO STRIKER - Not quarrelsome, not eager for reverent or “getting even”  when wronged, does not persecute or slander those who differ with him.

10.  NOT GREEDY OF FILTHY LUCRENot wrongly Motivated Toward Money, not using wrong or deceptive methods to raise money or increase personal income.

11.  PATIENT - Meek, gentle, humble, and slow to speak and react toward accusations.

12.  NOT A BRAWLERNot contentious, but quiet and peaceable.

13.  NOT COVETOUS - Not a lover of material things over spiritual things, not desiring office for personal gain or gratification.

14.  RULER OF HIS HOUSENot a Tyrant, but a responsible leader of his family, having the love and respect of his children. Please note that that particular emphasis is placed on the person’s ability to manage a family and the Scripture infers that if one cannot rule his own house, he is not capable of caring for the church of God (I Timothy 3:5).

15.  NOT A NOVICE - Not a new or recent convert who has not had sufficient experience in his Christian walk to know how to resist the devil and temptation.

16.  OF GOOD REPORTWell spoken of from those outside the church (Non-Christians) whose life is respected by the community in general; this includes paying bills and not incurring excess debts so as to cause financial problems.

Paradigm Shifts what are they?

A Paradigm is a Philosophical view of the world, or the way in which we perceive, understand or interpret our world. Paradigm shifts cannot be ignored, even if we do not agree with the changes.

The way our society views the world may bot be doctrinally or Biblically sound, but it can’t be ignored.  In the next Several Articles  I will give a brief overview of paradigm shifts that have taken place in the secular world during the last 20 years and what they mean to the church .

Remember, as Christians we may not agree with these paradigm shifts, but they can’t be ignored.

Pastor Kirt Eure

Paradigm Shifts what are they?

The Shift from an emphasis on religious values to an emphasis on secularism. Twenty years ago most people were religious, and virtually everyone had some kind of church background. Today we cannot assume that everyone we meet has a religious background. For instance, seventy-one percent of the people born after 1965 have had no religious training.

Their parents were the “children of the sixties”  where the predominant philosophy of life was “if it feels good, do it.” Many of these adults have no childhood memory of church attendance because their parents never took them.

Many have never heard The Lord’s Prayer because it was taken out of the schools. They don’t own a Bible and wouldn’t know what to do with it if they did. They don’t understand “Christianese”  or any of the terminology used in the church.  This kind of person thinks church is boring and irrelevant and they can’t imagine why anyone would want to waste time by going to church.

A Paradigm Shift From Family To Media – Part 3

Paradigm Shifts what are they?

In times past families would sit around the fireplace and hear stories from grandmother and grandfather, or huddle around the radio arm in arm, listening and laughing together. Today’s generation is the first in  history to be raised by the media.  The average home in America has three TV’s and the average person watches more then fifty hours of Television per week. This has affected society in four major ways:

1.  A raised expectation of quality - Virtually everyone today has been exposed to the best quality music, preaching , teaching and entertainment available.  Churches must raise the value of excellence, or lose many potential members.

2.  Shorted attention span - Television programmers insert advertisements about every eight minutes, which has shortened the attention span of most Americans. A 30-40 minute sermon must be sprinkled with illustrations, humor , or stories to  hold attention.

3.  Increased competition for time – Since the average person spends more time watching television then they do at work, many Americans find themselves with less time now tan their forefather did.  If Sunday worship is not significantly meaningful , Americans simply opt to do something else with their time.

4.  Because Television is truly vicarious living , an increasing number of Americans are feeling the effects of isolation. In the future, churches that offer ways for people to develop rick, meaningful relationships will thrive.

There are certainly few topics in modern Christianity that are more controversial than the role of women in family and society. Furthermore, no element of that controversy is more certain to provoke heated debate than Scripture’s call that women be “submissive” to their husbands.

It is the intent in these next couple articles to aid you in understanding God’s viewpoint of the controversy of submission. We will not shrink from a careful study of the truths contained in Ephesians 5. Instead , we will allow Scripture to speak for itself while endeavoring to take into account the “whole counsel of God”  Acts 20:27, to ensure that the conclusions that are drawn are accurate, precise and honoring to God.

Before we define the term, let’s take time to analyze the roots of the debate and how proper understanding of certain principles can aid us in grasping the beauty of submission.

We will look at some of the causes of the controversy:

1. Subjugation and Abuse. Dr. Brian Chappell, the president of covenant Theological Seminary, had just completed a lecture on the roles of husband and wife when he was approached by professional looking women.  Confident and articulate, she addressed the speaker. “Why is it that you cannot see that by telling wives that they must submit their gifts to the support of their husbands, you make women second class?  I don’t care how nicely you state it and how kind you are trying to be. Once you make women subservient to men, you devalue us and perpetuate our oppression. Somebody must tell you that when you give these talks, you rob women for the dignity God gives them.”

Her concern is echoed by countless numbers of women thought the world. For too long, they cry, women have been controlled, abused, manipulated, and ignored. “It is time for us to rise and take our rightful place in the world, they say.  When one makes a fair appraisal of history, it is difficult for the intellectual-honest person not to agree. Based on men’s behavior toward women throughout the centuries, one could rightly conclude, “You men have been asking for it.

Now you are only suffering the consequences of your choices.”  One could speculate that the feminist movement would have been non-existent had men been the sacrificial, loving leaders God had Called them to be.

Pastor Kirt Eure – GODS VIEW POINT OF THE CONTROVERSY OF SUBMISSION

We will look at some of the causes of the controversy:

2.    Radical Feminism. Feminism, in its early days, had a fair and, come could argue, Godly motivation to eliminate the discrimination rampant in pay scales and social structures is a goal that few would argue against. Unfortunately, the feminist movement has undergone a mutation throughout this century. Instead of being satisfied with the goal of equality “ There is neither Jew no Greek, there is neither salve nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus”  Gal 3:28 , modern feminist desire to eliminate any distinctions between the sexes.

One advocate for modern feminism stated, “Feminism is no longer a battle for equal opportunity in a male-dominated society, but a kind of 120step recovery program for wounded women. “  None other than Gloria Steinem once said of members of the feminist movement, “Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry.”  This certainly is not a global that squares with Biblical teaching.

God has once and for all declared us equal in terms of value and worth. However, He makes marked distinctions in our roles and functions. Furthermore science also contradicts the radical feminists’ view of the sexes having no distinctions.

Many studies have been done explaining that when men’s rains experience the bath of testosterone and others hormones while developing in their mothers’ wombs, their thinking, behavior, and emotional tendencies are radically altered and remain unchanged throughout life.

For example, in a Harvard study of several hundred preschoolers, researchers discovered an interesting phenomenon.  As they taped the children s playground conversation, they realized that all sounds coming from little girls mouths were recognizable words.

However, only 60 percent of the sounds coming from little boys were recognizable.  The other 40 percent were yells and sounds effects like “Vrrrooooom!””Aaaaagh!” “Toot toot!”   This difference persists into adulthood.  Communication experts say that the average women speaks over 25,000 words a day while the average man speaks only a little over 10,000.

We must resist modern feminism’s attempt to blur the boundary between the sexes. The healthy functioning of a family is not determined by all members acting, thinking, and feeling alike.

Rather it is as the members of a family recognize their God created differences and adhere to their God- ordained roles that the pieces fit together and work properly. Families are torn apart by competition, they are held together by complementarity.

“We’re supposed to be revolutionaries. And that’s odd that that sounds odd in this world but it’s because the church has embraced the status quo instead of embracing what Jesus Christ brought into this world which was revolution.”

Related * Church Leaders Abuzz About Virtual Conference That was the core message Pastor Brad Powell of Northridge Church tried to get across to fellow church leaders around the world within a short time frame of nine minutes. He addressed a purely online audience on Wednesday during “The Nines” conference that featured back-to-back nine-minute video messages from renowned and lesser known communicators and pastors.

The virtual conference, organized by Leadership Network and Catalyst, drew over 20,000 participants throughout the daylong event. Online attendees carried conversations on blogs and Twitter, making “The Nines” the most tweeted topic for about three hours that day. “We have shut Jesus out of the church and by shutting Jesus out of the church we have become everything contrary, antithetical to what Jesus wants the church to be,” Powell of Plymouth, Mich., said in his pre-recorded video.

“We need to let Jesus back in the church so that revolution can begin again; so our churches, instead of being turned inward will turn outward again; so that our churches, instead of being exclusive little clubs, parks and recreation for the middle class, will become inclusive again.” The Northridge pastor sees many churches today as “museums of what God once did” and many pastors as “curators of those antiquities.”

He urged church and ministry leaders to be on the offense and go after the world rather than on the defense and just trying to keep people from leaving church. “We have to create a mission that is revolutionary,” he stressed. Some 75 pastors, authors and communicators sent in their webcam videos to share their passionate and personal messages with other church leaders. Among The Nines’ virtual speakers were Greg Surratt of Seacoast Church, Rick Warren of Saddleback Community Church, Eric Bryant of Mosaic, and authors Leonard Sweet and Brian McLaren. Bryant of Mosaic in Los Angeles used his nine minutes to talk about advocating for the rights of those who do not yet believe in Christ. “Are we investing in people who might believe differently than us?” he posed. Church is often seen as “a place to meet our needs as Christians” but Bryant encouraged church leaders to see it as a place that meets the needs of the world.

He challenged listeners to treat the world around them not as outsiders but as friends and to allow them into their lives and their community even if they might hold different beliefs. Then when the time was right, Christians would share with them how their lives have been changed by Jesus. Author Leonard Sweet offered his few minutes of wisdom, telling church leaders how to deal with a big head. “The more successful you get, the more [you're] used by God, the bigger head you got to deal with,” Sweet said in his video message. His answer to the big head syndrome is “humble confidence” or “confident humility.” Confidence is knowing that there are no limits to what God can do. But at the same time, it’s knowing that without Christ, “I can’t do anything,” he explained. “Humility is not putting yourselves down. It’s accepting the great gifts and talents God has given you … receiving them as gifts. These are not yours,” he said. The Nines was a free event and accessible to anyone interested in gaining some inspiration, motivation or just plain information. All 75 video presentations will be available for free viewing next week.

Christian Post

Biblical hermeneutics deals with the effective interpretation of understanding of God’s viewpoint as revealed in the scripture. Many Ministries and theologians search the Scriptures for “proof” of what they have previously taught or believed to be true.

It is vitally important that we realize that God inspired the scripture and it is not important what ” WE THINK, WE THOUGHT, HE SAID
Textual Or Lower Criticism

The first step in correctly interpreting Bible text involves restoring the original text of documents which have been exposed to the hazards of successive copying and recopying. Obviously, we do not have any original manuscripts produced by Moses, David,the Prophets, Paul, Mark, Matthew, etc.

A number of scholars have devoted their entire lives to interpreting the various ancient manuscripts and writings of the church fathers in order to give us, except in a few cases still disputed, what is genuine and true to the original manuscripts.

Higher Criticism

The next step called “Higher criticism” involves asking a number of questions concerning any given text to establish the basics of when, where, why, and how the text was produced. This is precisely what we will be doing in the upcoming lectures titled “Old Testament Survey” and “New Testament Survey.”

Higher criticism involves the following considerations.

1.   Determining the authorship of a manuscript (by means of internal or external evidence) – For instance, it is significant to note that the book of James was probably written by the half brother of Jesus and pastor of the Jerusalem church.

The books of Luke and Acts were written by a well-educated physician named Luke, and this explains the detail with which he describes various illnesses in his writings.

2.   Establishing the date of its origin – It is interesting to note in Acts l9:6 when “…the Holy Ghost come on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. ” that it was 25 years after the original day of Pentecost.

3.    Genuineness – Did events or details recorded in the text actually occur? Example: The temple described in chapters 40 – 48 of Ezekiel was never built, and this caused some serious doubt of the legitimacy of the book.

4.   Destination – What was the target audience or to whom was the book originally addressed? Example: The book of Acts is addressed to Theophilus, yet no one knows who this is.

It has been suggested that Theophilus refers to all Christians (Theophilus means “loves God”), or perhaps it refers to an undiscovered city of that day; and still others have suggested that Theophilus was Paul’s attorney and that the book of Luke and Acts were written to serve as his defense during the Trial in Rome.

5.   The purpose – Why was the document written? Example: The books of Job and Psalms, as well as others, were written as Hebrew poetry.

6.   The place of writing – Example: Paul wrote Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon while in prison.

7.   The nature of the document – Is it historical? Is it fictional? Is it prophetic? Example: The book of Revelation is considered apocalyptic literature meaning “hidden from view.”

By subjecting the text to these various steps, we begin to close the gaps separating the reader from the intent of the author.

By Pastor Kirt Eure

Throughout history there have been various approaches to the study of Biblical hermeneutics. From I 50 to400 A.D., there flourished in Alexandria an approach known as allegorical interpretation.

The great scholar Origin (185-254 A.D.) is considered the major proponent of this method which taught that there was a literal, moral, and mystical sense in Scripture corresponding to the tripartite aspect of man. During the fourth century A.D,, a more literal interpretation of Scriptures was pioneered by Diodore of Tarsus and taught at the famous school at Antioch.

With the Protestant Reformation came a new era in the history of hermeneutics. The unprecedented availability of the Bible, made possible by the newly invented printing press, caused a new enthusiasm among theologians and the common people. For the first time in history the average person was able to read and interpret Scripture for the himself and, therefore, challenge the stereotype interpretations of the clergy.

Pastor Kirt Eure speaks on How Communication With God is vital to your spiritual growth.

Pastor Kirt teaches on Total Dependence On God. Are you totally depending on God in everything you do?

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals could avoid altogether the divisive case of California’s Proposition 8, leaving the conclusion of whether gay marriage is a constitutional right to another court and another time.

Before taking up the question of whether Prop. 8 is constitutional, the three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in San Francisco must first decide if the appeal case is even valid. The defendants named in the original case – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Attorney General Jerry Brown – have both refused to appeal the decision of Judge Vaughn Walker.
That left supporters of the voter-approved ballot measure to file the appeal and defend it. The panel is deciding whether they have a legal right to appeal Walker’s ruling. If the appeals court decides they do not, then Walker’s ruling will go into effect and the question of whether gay marriage is a constitutional right will be left unresolved and await another legal battle.

Both sides had hoped to push the case all the way to the Supreme Court and have finality to the question of whether gay marriage is a right under the Constitution. “Judges are human beings,” commented Alan Morrison, a law professor at George Washington University, to The Mercury News. “If there is an easy way out, most people will look for it. And this would be an easy way out for the judges.”

On Monday, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals surprised both sides by granting the request of Prop. 8 proponents to stay Judge Walker’s Aug. 4 decision to strike down Prop. 8 while the court considers the case. Before the hold, same-sex marriages were set to begin on Wednesday. Now, the earliest gay marriage could become legal in California is in December, when the oral arguments are scheduled to start.
Though Prop. 8 proponents hailed the decision, experts say the approved stay on Walker’s same-sex marriage ruling does not mean they have an edge in the case. The well-known liberal appeals court could rule either way, or, not take up the case at all.

“I don’t think that the granting of the stay means much, if anything, about how the Ninth Circuit will rule on the merits,” said Richard Hasen, a professor of law at the Loyola Law School Los Angeles, according to the New York Times. “It won’t be the same panel deciding the merits as decided the stay motion.” The 9th Circuit Court has scheduled oral arguments for the week of Dec. 6 and changed the due dates of the opening brief to Sept. 17 and the answering brief to Oct. 18.
Same-sex marriage is presently legal in five states – Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont – and Washington, D.C.

To Dust You Shall Return

To Dust You Shall ReturnTo Dust You Shall Return

We joke about some ones age, remarking they are “as old as dirt!” Well, I guess that is pretty old! Now, that I have hit the sixty mark, I am conscious of my many signs of aging. Car enthusiasts fancy a car that accelerates quickly from 0-100. My acceleration has greatly decreased! When I get up after sitting, it takes me a few minutes to get moving. I’m glad I am not being timed! My gears need lubrication; because I get pretty stiff.

I think I am “as old as dust!” We all remember the Genesis account of the sin of Adam and Eve, and God’s confronting the couple in the Garden of Eden. Part of His closing remarks include, “By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, because from it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return (Genesis 3:19 NAS).” When I think of dust it seems dry, as in the depression “dust bowl,” a time of drought. Last night while getting ready for bed the thought of returning to dust seemed very relevant.

My bedtime routine includes brushing my teeth, taking medications (definite sign of aging!) putting moisturizer on my face, and putting artificial tears in my eyes. Last night after reading my devotionals I rubbed cream on my hands and feet. I did all of this mechanically; but then the last step got my attention. I put Chap Stick on and thought; my whole body is drying out! I am returning to dust!

On Sunday, August 14, ABC’s Orlando affiliate (WFTV) confirmed the death of Pastor Zachary Tims of the New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, FL.

The New York City Police Department confirmed Tims died on Friday, August 12, 2011.

Tims’ body was found in room number 3711 at the W Hotel in New York’s Times Square at approximately 6 p.m.

The New York City Police Department reports Tims was found unresponsive on the floor in the room. Emergency responders pronounced him deceased. 

On Sunday, August 14, ABC’s Orlando affiliate (WFTV) confirmed the death of Pastor Zachary Tims of the New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, FL.

The New York City Police Department confirmed Tims died on Friday, August 12, 2011.

Tims’ body was found in room number 3711 at the W Hotel in New York’s Times Square at approximately 6 p.m.

The New York City Police Department reports Tims was found unresponsive on the floor in the room. Emergency responders pronounced him deceased. Grace Brugess, spokeswoman for the New York Medical Examiner’s Office, told CNN that more tests will be needed to determine a cause of death and that could take a few weeks.

The death of the father of four is said to have shocked his 8,000-member church in Apopka, Fla.

The church was to issue a statement at seven p.m. ET Monday concerning his death, according to CNN.

“At this time, we do not have all the details concerning our pastor, Dr. Zachery Tims,” read a sign posted Monday on the church’s doors, CNN said. “We ask that you keep him and his family in your prayers.”

Those who have been inspired by Tims’ messages have shared their condolences on his center’s Facebook page.

“Earth has no sorrow that heaven is not aware of. Praying for the family n congregation, may his soul rest in eternal peace,” one person wrote.

“So deeply sorry to hear of the loss of your Pastor, our prayers our with you and Pastor Tims family. Father God, send forth your healing power and comfort to your people at New Destiny Christian Center. Let your Spirit rise up and be glorified as you move in this situation. In Jesus Name, Amen,” another wrote.

The church’s Web site stated that Tims founded the Christian Center in 1996 with only six members. He was a former drug addict who got saved and called into ministry, according to the Web site.

The church’s work involves giving out food, clothing, personal toiletries, haircuts, and medical screening to name a few.

Lets keep his family and Church Members in prayer.

pastortimsThe death of Zachery Tims left many unanswered questions and as the one-month anniversary of the late pastor’s passing approaches there is speculation on whether New Destiny Christian Center (NDCC) can survive without its leader. “New Destiny, it’s not just about you any longer. It’s about the nation watching you,” Paula White, whom Tims called his “spiritual mother,” told NDCC in a sermon August 21 the Orlando Sentinel reported.

White, the pastor of Without Walls International Church in Tampa, Fla., said, “It’s about how you are going to respond, about what you are going to do.” It was revealed that Tims left instruction for the megachurch in the event of his death. According to the instructions, the NDCC should mourn for only 30 days – taking that time “to recover.” On the 31st day following his death, the church should resume its work.

In 1996, Zachery Tims’ and his family founded the NDCC in Apopka, Fla., where he served as senior pastor of a congregation of about 8,000 members.  Tims’ death left the New Destiny Church without a head. It was previously reported that NDCC would have a series of guest speakers as church administrators decided on who would take up Tims’ ministry.

There is no word as yet of the progress, if any, was made by NDCC administrators in naming a new senior pastor. The Christian Post contacted the NDCC and left a message but no church representative has responded by press time. Phil Cooke, a California-based church-leadership consultant told the Orlando Sentinel:

“The single biggest reason most of these mega churches grow so quickly is because the leader is a powerful and compelling personality.”

He added, “In the case of New Destiny, the intense focus on Pastor Tims during his life, and the questions surrounding his death, all indicate that finding a successor during a time of questions and uncertainty will be extraordinarily difficult.” There is speculation that it could take NDCC at least a year, if not longer, to choose a new pastor because it probably never anticipated the need to do so.

“There was literally one pastor. For a congregation that size, that is very unusual,” said Sheila Strobel Smith, an author and expert on leadership transition in megachurches, the Orlando Sentinel wrote. According to Smith, congregations usually are not able to return to where they were before such a tragedy as this.

The question most would like an answer to – what is the next move for New Destiny and can the congregation thrive without Zachery Tims? Tims, 42, was found dead in his W Hotel bedroom in New York City on Friday, Aug. 12. The cause of his death has yet to be determine.


Reverend Yvette Grier speaks about Getting our focus on God and spiritual things and not on the carnal which are worldly things.

Pastor John MacArthur exposes Joel Osteen as a pagan religionist, a quasi-pantheist, and an agent of Satan. He critiques Joel’s book, quotes, and prayer and compares them with what the Bible teaches.

This is an excerpt from John MacArthur’s sermon, “A True Knowledge of the True God.” Used by permission. You can read the transcript, watch, or download the full video here:

Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: and he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings – Daniel 2:20-21

God is sovereign, ruling over all creation. He is not only sovereign in his authority; he is sovereign over all wisdom (knowledge) and might (power).

Power belongs to God and wisdom belongs to God. No one has either unless God grants it to them. The great comfort that Daniel draws from this truth is this: it is God who changes the times and seasons on earth, and it is God who removes and sets up kings according to His pleasure.

We are often tempted to think inaccurately about these world events. We begin to think that the seasons change out of habit, because they have done so for thousands of years. However, this is not so. Because power and wisdom belong to God, even the changing of each season is a result of His active participation and guiding.

We might also, especially in democratic societies, begin to think that rulers are set up or brought down by popular vote, or effective fundraising. But, as Daniel reminds himself, God is the one who casts the deciding vote for or against any ruler. He may allow ungodly rulers into power in order to fulfill His own purposes (as He did in the days of Habakkuk), but He is still good and He is still sovereign.

The sovereignty of God leads Daniel to this exclamation of praise: blessed be the name of God for ever and ever. He is worthy of praise because He owns all wisdom and power, and He is forever worthy of praise because He will always be sovereign.

Senator Edoghie Uzamere, of the Action Congress of Nigeria representing Edo South, received more than he bargained for when his driver of seven years, robbed him at gunpoint on Friday evening.

Uzamere, who narrated his ordeal to newsmen in Abuja, on Saturday, said the incident was a traumatic experience for him and his household.

According to him, the driver, Mohammed Ibrahim, who is in his mid-thirties and a native of Niger State, put a gun to his head and dispossessed him of cash and other valuables.

He said his once trusted aide pointed the weapon at his head, dragged him out of his black Mercedes Benz S 430 and sped off with a briefcase containing an undisclosed but substantial sum of money and very important documents.

The senator, who was on his way to Benin, the Edo state capital for the convention of the Action Congress of Nigeria, said he was happy to be alive.

Uzamere said, “It was around 12pm on Friday. We were on the way to the airport when I decided to check my briefcase.

“I discovered that part of the money inside had been taken. I asked my driver how that came to be since I left him in the car earlier when I went to the Chinese Embassy.

“I felt I would need some money for the activities slated for the convention. So I said he should take me back let me find a solution to the missing money.

“But just before we reached my house, the driver suddenly parked the car, came to my side and put a pistol on my head. He dragged me out and drove off.”

It was gathered that the driver who was described as very religious had over the years wormed his way into the hearts of most of the family members.

The suspect later put a call through to a member of the Uzamere household and told them to pick the vehicle somewhere within the Life camp area in Abuja.

The matter has been reported to the Utako police station.
