Jesus: Future Resurrection (Mark 12:18, Part 1)

Believing in God does not mean you have a relationship with God. Because someone believes God exists, makes good decisions, supports good causes, attends church, and is a good citizen does not indicate they are follower of Jesus or have a home in heaven. In 2 Timothy 3, Paul reminds us there are people who “will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly” (v.5, NLT).

Benefits of Good Doctrine

You believe something, but why do you believe it? You have beliefs about many things. You have strong opinions about God regarding what He is like or not like, how much He is involved in your life or how little, and what He can or cannot do. You have serious views about marriage – you have thoughts about the role of the husband, role of the wife, submission, leadership in the home, and raising children. You have convictions about things like what happens after life, what heaven and hell are like, the role of the Holy Spirit in your life and who Jesus is. All your thoughts and ideas about matters dealing with God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the church, God’s Word, the devil, the spiritual world, angels and the like make you a theologian. Whether we like it or not, every one of us is a theologian. We all have a set of beliefs. The question is, what are your beliefs based on? What is the foundation of your theology? Continue reading
