Cum şi de ce m-am pocăit şi m-am botezat!!!



Gabi Lupescu – Eu Domnul te voi invata si-ti voi arata CALEA !!!

“Oferta” Tatalui ceresc este cat se poate de generoasa in aceasta privinta: “ Eu -zice Domnul – te voi invata si-ti voi arata calea pe care trebuie s-o urmezi; te voi sfatui si voi avea privirea indreptata asupra ta.” Aceasta fagaduinta divina este impresionanta , caci ea raspunde in mod desavarsit nevoilor noastre multiple.
1) In primul rand , aceasta promisiune nu se limiteaza doar la anumite aspecte ale vietii, lasandu-ne descoperiti si fara calauzire in altele. Cand Dumnezeu ne promite ca ne va arata calea pe care trebuie sa mergem, El ne asigura de asistenta Sa in toate domeniile vietii.
Ca sa fim siguri de acest lucru, El ne intreaba prin profetul Ieremia: “Sunt Eu numai un Dumnezeu de aproape, zice Domnul ? Nu sunt Eu si un Dumnezeu de departe? “ ( Ieremia 23, 23 ) Altfel exprimata, ideea este urmatoarea: “Sunt Eu un Dumnezeu care pot calauzi doar in lucrurile mari ale vietii ?
Nu sunt Eu si un Dumnezeu care va poate calauzi si in lucrurile mici si neinsemnate ?”
Daca atunci cand dorim sa ne intemeiem o familie, sa ne mutam intr-o alta localitate sau alta tara, daca atunci cand ne alegem profesia ne este mai usor sa ne plecam genunchiul in rugaciune, cerindu-I Tatalui ceresc sa ne indrume, cand este vorba de alegeri pe care le consideram neinsemnate este ceva mai greu. Ne simtim destul de intelepti sa ne descurcam si singuri, sau poate consideram ca Dumnezeu este prea ocupat cu marele Sau Univers pentru a da importanta si maruntelor noastre probleme. Dar nu este asa ! El are placere sa se implice in cele mai mici amanunte ale existentei noastre, daca si noi dorim acest lucru.
2 ) In al doilea rand, Dumnezeu nu ne obliga sa urmam sfatul Sau. Expresia “te voi sfatui” ( nu “te voi obliga” ! ) este o promisiune minunata plina de dragoste si El nu ne forteaza sa -L ascultam desi intr-un fel ar avea tot dreptul ca El ne a creat dar El e drept si lucreaza dupa dreptatea Lui…
3 ) In al treilea rand, Dumnezeu ne promite supraveghere continua si discreta: “Voi avea privirea indreptata asupra ta”. Aceasta latura a promisiunii Sale ar putea sa-i deranjeze pe unii oameni stapaniti de spiritul de independenta si razvratire. Indiferent de sentimentele unora fata de Tatal ceresc, El nu poate fi altfel decat un Tata plin de grija pentru creaturile Sale. Cand copiii sunt neasultatori si zburdalnici, supravegherea si grija parintilor este cu atat mai mare. Insa pe cei care doresc prezenta divina in toate amanuntele vietii lor, aceasta promisiune… este una din cele mai mangaietoare care exista pe paginile Bibliei.
Se ridica insa o problema cat se poate de practica: Cum poti cunoaste voia lui Dumnezeu atunci cand te afli la o rascruce de drumuri ? Care sunt caile prin care El iti vorbeste , calauzindu-ti pasii pe un teren sigur ?
Raspunsul e alcatuit din doua parti:
1) Cauta-L pe Dumnezeu pe aceeasi cale pe care L-ai cautat si in alte ocazii ale vietii si El ti-a raspuns !
2) Desi exista mai multe cai prin care putem cunoaste voia lui Dumnezeu… numai una singura este infailibila : Biblia!. Amin

Dr. R.C. Sproul – Lecture 3, Early Controversies from The Mystery of the Trinity Teaching Series from Ligonier Ministries

from Ligonier Ministries – http://www.ligonier.org/learn/series/mystery-of-the-trinity/early-controversies/Lecture 3, Early Controversies:During the early centuries of the church, there were many attempts to explain the divinity of Jesus, and how He relates to the Father. With nearly every attempt, a heresy was born and controversy followed. Yet, orthodoxy prevailed. In this message, Dr. Sproul explains how the early controversies led to the orthodox doctrine of the Trinity.

Lessons from an Inconsolable Soul Learning from the Mind and Heart of C. S. Lewis – Desiring God

Born November 29, 1898 was one Clive Staples Lewis. His friends called him Jack. We know him as C. S. Lewis. He died just shy of 65 years old on November 22, 1963, the same day as John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Davdi Mathis over at Desiring God writes a birthday note along with a link to this John Piper tribute to Lewis in his biographical address „Lessons from an Inconsolable Soul.”

1) It Seems I Shouldn’t Find Lewis So Helpful

My approach in this talk is personal. I am going to talk about what has meant the most to me in C. S. Lewis—how he has helped me the most. And as I raise this question, as I have many times over the years, the backdrop of the question becomes increasingly urgent: Why has he been so significant for me, even though he is not Reformed in his doctrine, and could barely be called an evangelical by typical American uses of that word?

He doesn’t believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, 1 and defaults to logical arguments more naturally than to biblical exegesis. He doesn’t treat the Reformation with respect, but thinks it could have been avoided, and calls aspects of if farcical. 2 He steadfastly refused in public or in letters to explain why he was not a Roman Catholic but remained in the Church of England. 3 He makes room for at least some people to be saved through imperfect representations of Christ in other religions. 4 He made a strong logical, but I think unbiblical, case for free will to explain why there is suffering in the world. 5 He speaks of the atonement with reverence, but puts little significance on any of the explanations for how it actually saves sinners. 6

In other words, Lewis is not a writer to which we should turn for growth in a careful biblical understanding of Christian doctrine. There is almost no passage of Scripture on which I would turn to Lewis for exegetical illumination. A few, but not many. He doesn’t deal with many. If we follow him in the kinds of mistakes that he made (the ones listed above), it will hurt the church and dishonor Christ. His value is not in his biblical exegesis. Lewis is not the kind of writer who provides substance for a pastor’s sermons. If a pastor treats Lewis as a resource for doctrinal substance, he will find his messages growing thin, interesting perhaps, but not with much rich biblical content.

The Ironic Effect of Reading Lewis

So you see the kind of backdrop there is for this message. How and why has C. S. Lewis been so helpful to me when I think he is so wrong on some very important matters? Why don’t I put Lewis in the same category as the so-called “emergent” writers? At one level, the mistakes seem similar. But when I pose the question that way, it starts to become pretty clear to me why Lewis keeps being useful, while I think the emergent voices will fade away fairly quickly.

In fact, I think posing the question this way not only explains why he has been so helpful to me, but also goes right to the heart of what the life and work of C. S. Lewis were about. There was something at the core of his work—of his mind—that had the ironic effect on me of awakening lively affections and firm convictions that he himself would not have held.

Something About Lewis

There was something about the way he read Scripture that made my own embrace of inerrancy tighter, not looser. There was something about the way he spoke of grace and God’s power that made me value the particularities of the Reformation more, not less. There was something about the way he portrayed the wonders of the incarnation that made me more suspicious of his own inclusivism, not less. There was something about the way he spoke of doctrine as the necessary roadmap that leads to Reality, 7 and the way he esteemed truth and reason and precision of thought, that made me cherish more, not less, the historic articulations of the biblical explanations of how the work of Christ saves sinners—the so-called theories of the atonement.

It may be that others have been drawn away by Lewis from these kinds of convictions and experiences. I doubt very seriously that more people on the whole have been weakened in true biblical commitments than have been strengthened by reading Lewis. I am sure it happens. I am sure that for many, for example, who have taken the road to Roman Catholicism away from evangelicalism, Lewis has played a part in that pilgrimage. He devoted his whole Christian life to defending and adorning what he called “mere Christianity”—“the Christian religion as understood ubique et ab omnibus [everywhere by everyone].” 8 “I have believed myself to be restating ancient and orthodox doctrines. . . . I have tried to assume nothing that is not professed by all baptized and communicating Christians.” 9 This means that he rarely tried to distance himself from Roman Catholicism or any other part of Christendom. He rarely spoke about any debates within Christianity itself. 10

A Pastoral Price to Pay

There is a price to pay when you set yourself this kind of agenda. You will almost certainly omit things essential to the gospel. Not that you yourself do not believe those things, but since virtually all important doctrines have been disputed from within the church (not just from outside), the effort to omit what’s disputed runs the risk of omitting what’s essential. We all should be warned about this, because the disputes in the New Testament letters themselves are virtually all disputes within the church, not with those outside. In the marketplace and the synagogue, Paul argued for the gospel with unbelievers. But in his letters, he defends and defines the heart of the gospel not by disputing with those outside the church, but with those inside the church. He did not consider these disputes—for example in Galatians—as peripheral skirmishes but rather as part of what “mere Christianity” actually is.  This dispute is what the Reformation was about.

Therefore, Lewis set himself a lifelong task that no pastor should follow—namely, to adorn and defend only those truths that he thought all Christians always and everywhere have believed. 11 Lewis was not a pastor. He was a professor of English Literature from 1924 to 1963, first at Oxford and then at Cambridge. He did not have to open the Scriptures week after week for a group of people over the course of 30 or 40 years. He didn’t have to explain to his flock the fullness of God’s written revelation. He was a scholar, a writer of science fiction, children’s books, poetry, essays, and apologetics. In these spheres, he chose his focus. He called it “mere Christianity.” Within that limited focus (which he would say is infinitely large), he fell short of saying many important things regarding the gospel of Christ. But if I focus not on what he failed to say, but on what he said and did, I find that even for me—for one who considers some doctrines to be crucial that he neglected—even for me, the blessings of his work have been incalculable.

Vladimit Pustan: „Spunem ca suntem un popor crestin. Atunci cind folosim numele lui Dumnezeu trebuie sa o facem cu maxima responsabilitate, cu maxima intelepciune, sa o facem cu maxima modestie. Am ajuns in poporul nostru… exemplu-in ultimii 50 de ani am omorit in pintecele mamelor 23 de milioane de copii…asistam si suntem in mijlocul unui macel fantastic…Romania a devenit un abator. Vreau sa intelegeti in aceasta seara ca acest pacat trebuie sa ne doara, ca toate pacatele pe care le facem. Cita vreme nu exista pocainta, cita vreme nu exista durere, cita vreme nu exista spiritul Lui Sfint sa locuiasca in noi, si nu ii dam voie nu va fi nici o sansa pentru Romania.

Daca nu il cunoasteti pe fratele Vladimir Pustan aici se poate asculta interviul dinsului: „Cum si de ce m-am pocait”

Gabi Lupescu – ” Si, din pricina inmultirii faradelegii… dragostea celor mai multi se va raci !”. (Mat.24:12)

Profetia pe care impreuna o discutam acum „si din pricina inmultirii faradelegii, dragostea celor mai multi se va raci”, are si ceva optimist in ea care scapa unei analize superficiale, dar pe care vrem sa-l punem in evidenta. Prin negativul „dragostea celor mai multi se va raci” intrezarim ca nu dragostea tuturor se va raci. Va fi asadar de la „cei mai multi” pana la „toti” un „rest”, dragostea unor putini, care totusi nu se va raci. Cat de multi vor fi acei a caror dragoste „se va raci”, cat de putini vor fi acei a caror dragoste „nu se va raci”, nu stim. Domnul nu a spus acest lucru. Dar este cert ca „oricat de putini”, vor fi totusi oameni in zilele sfarsitului care vor iubi pe semenii lor ca pe ei insisi. Acest lucru face dovada ca principiul dragostei „sa iubesti pe aproapele tau ca pe tine insuti” este posibil de trait.Avem un mare exemplu, Domnul Isus Hristos. El a zis: „Va dau o porunca noua: sa va iubiti unii pe altii cum v-am iubit Eu, asa sa va iubiti unii pe altii”. Era „noua” aceasta porunca? Era veche de cand vesnicia – regula de aur de relatie intre finite in intregul Univers, inclusiv pe pamant. Au uitat-o oamenii. Au socotit-o invechita. Domnul a sters-o de praful faradelegii omenirii, i-a dat stralucirea …!!!….ei de inceput si mai ales a exemplificat-o: „Asa cum v-am iubit Eu”.

Ne-a pus-o apoi ca alternativa la „dragostea celor mai multi se va raci” si va birui. Dragostea unora, putini, …nu se va raci. Poate nici dragostea noastra nu se va raci , a mea si a ta !. Ce bine ar fi !. Sa-L intampinam pe Domnul curand cu dragoste de El si de oameni, fierbinte …. asa cum ne-a iubit El. A m i n

from Ligonier Ministries – http://www.ligonier.org/learn/series/mystery-of-the-trinity/the-biblical-witness/Lecture 2

The Biblical Witness:The word Trinity is not found anywhere in the Bible. So why do Christians insist that the Bible teaches this doctrine? In this message entitled “The Biblical Witness,” Dr. Sproul considers this as he shows how the doctrine of Trinity is not just a New Testament novelty, but rather, a rich doctrine rooted in the Old Testament.

Gabi Lupescu – Cum sa-ti revii din starea… de abatere a inimii

Cum sa-ti revii din starea… de abatere a inimii , ce te-a aplecat inspre lume cu neascultarea ei !

1) Aminteste-ti de unde ai cazut. Infrunta realitatea si in mod constient compara starea ta actuala cu aceea in care umblai cu Dumnezeu.

2) Arunca o privire sincera si lunga la adevarata ta pozitie spirituala. Nu mai amana rezolvarea acestui conflict dintre sufletul tau si Dumnezeu si nici indepartarea diferentelor dintre tine si El.

3) Pocaieste-te imediat si fa iarasi faptele pe care le-ai facut la inceput. (Apocalipsa 2:5)

4) Nu incerca sa-ti revii doar schimband ceea ce faci pe dinafara. Incepe schimbarea din inima ta si impaca-te cu Dumnezeu. Nu-ti ingadui odihna pana ce problema acceptarii tale inaintea Lui este complet rezolvata.

5) Nu te purta doar ca un pacatos osandit care crede ca trebuie sa se „reformeze singur si sa se faca mai bun” inainte de a veni la Hristos. Intelege clar ca, doar a veni la El te poate face bine! Oricat de tulburat a-i fii, intelege deslusit ca pana ce nu te pocaiesti si nu accepti neconditionat voia Lui, nu ai facut nici un progres, ci dimpotriva mergi inspre rau. Daca nu te bizui in intregime pe harul Sau suveran, si te intorci astfel la Dumnezeu, El nu va primi nimic din mainile tale sau de la tine.

6) Nu-ti imagina ca te afli intr-o stare de indreptatire inaintea Lui, deoarece stii in inima ta ca nu esti. Constiinta ta te condamna si stii ca de asemenea Dumnezeu s-ar cuveni sa te condamne. De te-ar indreptati El in starea ta actuala, constiinta ta nu i-ar da dreptate. Vino asadar imediat la Hristos, ca pacatos vinovat ce esti. Recunoaste si asuma-ti toata rusinea si responsabilitatea ta, si crede ca in ciuda tuturor ratacirilor tale, El inca te iubeste !. Fii binecuvantat !. Asa sa fie.

Gabi Lupescu – Mai buna este intristarea decat rasul

“Mai mult face un nume bun… decat untdelemnul mirositor si ziua mortii decat ziua nasterii. Mai bine sa te duci intr-o casa de jale, decat sa te duci intr-o casa de petrecere, caci acolo iti aduci aminte de sfarsitul oricarui om si cine traieste isi pune la inima lucrul acesta. Mai buna este intristarea decat rasul, caci prin intristarea fetei inima se face mai buna.” ( Eclesiastul 7, 1-3 )
Cum este posibil ca ziua morti…i sa fie mai buna decat ziua nasterii? Afirmatia Bibliei pare sa sfideze orice ratiune. Si aceasta cu atat mai mult cu cat chiar Solomon, autorul cartii Eclesiastul, afirma mai departe ca in “locuinta mortilor” nu mai exista “nici lucrare, nici chibzuiala, nici stiinta, nici intelepciune.” ( Eclesiastul 9, 5.6.10 )
Cand te nasti, ai intreaga viata in fata, se deschid perspective largi , iar planurile de viitor sunt numeroase. Dar cand mori …? Ce perspective si ce planuri mai raman pentru cel care pleaca ? Si atunci, cum poate Biblia sa afirme ca ziua mortii e mai buna decat ziua nasterii ?
Am gasit un singur raspuns la aceasta intrebare: Atunci cand te nasti, nu aduci cu tine nimic in aceasta lume. Nici macar numele!!!… caci si acesta ti se da…Mult incercatul Iov stia si el acest lucru atunci cand afirma: “Gol am iesit din pantecele mamei mele…” ( Iov 1, 21 )- Si totusi, atunci cand mori, iei cu tine ceva foarte important: caracterul. Si lasi in urma ta ceva la fel de important: influenta. Un caracter pe care l-ai cladit zi de zi si cu care te vei prezenta la marea judecata a lui Dumnezeu, precum si o influenta pentru care, de asemenea, vei raspunde candva inaintea Creatorului.
“Caracterul pe care-l aveti in aceasta viata , va fi caracterul pe care-l veti avea la revenirea Domnului Christos. Daca vrei sa fii un sfant in ceruri… trebuie sa fii un sfant pe pamant !. Trasaturile de caracter pe care le cultivi in viata nu vor fi schimbate prin moarte sau inviere. Vei iesi din mormant cu aceeasi dispozitie… pe care ai avut-o in camin si in societate!. Domnul Isus nu ne va schimba caracterul la revenirea Sa. Lucrarea de transformare trebuie facuta acum !!!. Viata noastra de zi cu zi …determina destinul nostru !.” .Amin.

Debate by noted Christian scholars on the Trinity

Wikipedia has a good introductory summary of how Christians describe the Trinity-

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity defines God as three divine persons (Greek: ὑποστάσεις):the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. The three persons are distinct yet coexist in unity, and are co-equal, co-eternal and consubstantial (Greek: ὁμοούσιοι). Put another way, the three persons of the Trinity are of one being (Greek: οὐσία). The Trinity is considered to be a mystery of Christian faith.

The major difference that divides the 3 major religions- Judaism, Christianity and Islam can also be traced right back to each faith’s particular understanding of the doctrine of the Trinity. Three years ago, 4 theologians met and debated, on the outskirts of Chicago at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School  (TEDS for short) of Deerfield,Illinois. They were/are former and current professors of TEDS – Bruce Ware, Wayne Grudem, Tom McCall, Keith Yandell.

The question the professors debated was-

Do relations of authority and submission exist eternally among the Persons of the Godhead?

Here is the Moderator, Dr. Chris Firestone’s introduction: There’s a real need for the Christian Evangelical community to maintain clarity and precision in its understanding of the doctrine of God, both in terms of its Christology and Trinity. This is where tonight’s debate picks up in earnest. The doctrine of the trinity is most arguably the most central and distinctive feature of the Christian faith. Questions to keep in mind as this debate proceeds-

  1. Which position best reflects the biblical witness?
  2. Which position is the most reasonable and rationally cogent?
  3. Should the biblical witness and rationale cogency be thought to conflict with one another?
  4. Should the Christians just stick with the confessional norms of the Church? If so, which position resonates with the historic position of the Church? If not, how revisionist of these norms should Evangelical Christians be?

Please set aside a good portion of time for this very important debate, as it is 2 1/2 hours long, and very well worth the time, considering the debaters, especially the most well known debater- Wayne Grudem, whose Systematic Theology Textbook sits on all of our shelves. At the introduction Dr. Chris Firestone also mentions several books written by the panelists on the subject of the Trinity that are well worth looking into as well. Enjoy!

R C Sproul – Nietzsche “The Consequences of Ideas”

Many of our children who have been raised in the church have the foundations of their faith shaken when they enter universities and college campuses across the nation. Here is a very important and helpful teaching series by noted theologian R.C.Sproul  available from Ligonier Ministries. The book can be purchased for under $16 here. You can also purchase the DVD or download the audio/video here.  Here is a summary of the book and teaching series from the book itself-

Summary

The greatest thinkers of all time are impacting us still. From public-policy decisions and current laws to world events, theology, the arts, education, and even conversations between friends, history’s most influential philosophies have wrought massive consequences on nearly everything we see, think, and do.

Thus it is critical for Christians to understand the ideas that are shaping them. The greater their familiarity with the streams of thought that have saturated Western culture through the ages, the greater their ability to influence this culture for Christ.

With The Consequences of Ideas, now in paperback, R. C. Sproul expertly leads the way for thoughtful readers. Tracing the contours of Western philosophy from the ancients to the molders of modern and postmodern thought—including Plato, Aquinas, Descartes, Kant, and Freud—Sproul proves that ideas are not just passing fads; they endure for generations to come and demand our serious attention.

Gabi Zagrean – Intre crapatura stancii si coapsele Lui Dumnezeu

…Citeodata spunem,”Doamne nu putem sa ne schimbam, suntem asa cum Tu ne-ai facut!” si il blamam pe Dumnezeu.

Ieremia 13:1-11,15,16,17

1,,Aşa mi -a vorbit Domnul: ,Du-te de cumpără-ţi un brîu de in, şi pune -l în jurul coapselor tale; dar să nu -l moi în apă!`

2Am cumpărat brîul, după porunca Domnului, şi l-am pus în jurul coapselor mele.

3Apoi Cuvîntul Domnului mi -a vorbit a doua oară, astfel:

4,Ia brîul, pe care l-ai cumpărat, şi pe care l-ai pus în jurul coapselor tale, scoală-te, du-te la Eufrat, şi ascunde -l acolo în crăpătura unei stînci.`

5M’am dus, şi l-am ascuns la Eufrat, cum îmi poruncise Domnul.

6După mai multe zile, Domnul mi -a zis: ,Scoală-te, du-te la Eufrat, şi ia de acolo brîul, pe care-ţi poruncisem să -l ascunzi acolo!`

7M’am dus la Eufrat, am săpat, şi am luat brîul din locul în care -l ascunsesem; dar iată că brîul era stricat şi nu mai era bun de nimic.

8Cuvîntul Domnului mi -a vorbit astfel:

9,Aşa vorbeşte Domnul: ,Aşa voi nimici mîndria lui Iuda şi mîndria peste măsură de mare a Ierusalimului.

10Poporul acesta este un popor rău: nu vrea să asculte cuvintele Mele, urmează pornirile inimii lui, şi merge după alţi dumnezei, ca să le slujească şi să se închine înaintea lor; de aceea va ajunge întocmai ca brîul acesta, care nu mai este bun de nimic!

11Căci, cum se lipeşte brîul de coapsele unui om, aşa Îmi lipisem Eu toată casa lui Israel şi toată casa lui Iuda, zice Domnul, ca să fie poporul Meu, Numele Meu, lauda Mea şi slava Mea; dar nu M’au ascultat.

15,,Ascultaţi şi luaţi aminte! Nu fiţi mîndri, căci Domnul vorbeşte!

16Daţi slavă Domnului, Dumnezeului vostru, pînă nu vine întunerecul, pînă nu vi se lovesc picioarele de munţii nopţii! Veţi aştepta lumina, dar El o va preface în umbra morţii, şi o va preface în negură adîncă.

17Iar dacă nu vreţi să ascultaţi, voi plînge în ascuns, pentru mîndria voastră; mi se vor topi ochii în lacrămi, pentrucă turma Domnului va fi dusă în robie.
