Florin Ianovici – Ce nu e crestinismul

sursa Facebook

Crestisnismul nu e adeziune ci asumare. Dumnezeu nu iti cere sa aderi la biblie ci sa o implinesti. E diferenta intre adept si ucenic.

Crestinismul nu e o idee mai buna ca altele ci o cale. Pe ea se merge nu se filosofeaza.

Crestinismul nu e raspunsul unei curiozitati in cunoastere ci implinirea nevoii unei inimi ranite si pierdute. E leac nu doar diagnostic.

Crestinismul nu e o inregimentare pasiva ci un mars continu al celor ca se numesc soldati ai crucii.

Crestinismul nu e un festivism desuet ci o descurajare a entusiasmului nauc, e un avertisment solemn si sever: cine nu se leapada de sine insusi nu poate fi ucenicul Meu!

Crestinismul nu e doar vorba ci mai ales fapta. Dar nu orice fapta ci una roditoare, adica nu doar febra musculara ci si celebrala, dar mai ales febra unei inimii ce este in coclot pentru Cristos.

Multumiri speciale lui Ion Paul pentru filmarea aceasta! God bless him!

Eu n-am sa va tin o predica, dar vreau sa va impartasesc un gand care astazi, de dimineata, mi-a stapanit gandurile si inima. Sa stiti, iubitii Domnului, ca luptele noastre, de multe ori sunt lupte omenesti. M-am uitat la ce este sub soare si pe masura ce inaintez in timp imi dau seama ca omul s-a prins intr-o mreaja in care cu greu va putea sa scape fara ajutorul lui Dumnezeu. Cu fiecare zi a veitii noastre imi dau seama ca ne risipim. Cu fiecare zi a veitii noastre imi dau seama ca luptele noastre sunt menite doar sa ne ascunda cerul. Fiecare zi care trece ar trebui sa ne ingrijoreze pentru ca la un anumit timp in viata nu mai poti numara uitandu-te in fata, ci va trebui sa numeri din spate. Adica, ar trebui sa te intrebi: cat ti-a mai ramas. Cu fiecare zi care trece imi dau seama ca de fapt cel rau cauta sa ne asmuta unii asupra altora in lupte inutile. Pentru noi este important de multe ori sa stim daca bine este sa faci un lucru sau alt lucru pamantesc dupa regulile oamenilor. Daca bunaoara rozul ar fi de la Dumnezeu, sau verdele. Sau trebuie sa se poarte numai negru.

Pe noi de multe ori ne framanta sa dam raspunsuri la intrebari care n-au nici o relevanta in cer. E Vinerea Mare si ar trebui sa ne gandim bine, pana la varsta asta ce am facut? Si ar trebui sa ne gandim, uitandu-ne spre Dumnezeu, oare cat a mai ramas din numaratoarea sfanta, ca fiecare om care a venit pe pamantul acesta a venit cu un ceas si va parasi lumea asta la un ceas pe care Dumnezeu il masoara. Niciodata, sa stiti, ca pe Dumnezeu nu L-a preocupat luptele noastre marunte. Nu va conta atat de mult daca Duminica dimineata vei manca cozonac, daca vei manca o mancare buna. Va conta daca o faci cu inima buna. Va conta daca ai langa cine sa faci lucrul asta si va conta daca cei din jurul tau te iubesc sincer. Va conta pe pamantul acesta daca poti manca uitandu-te in sus, ca cei mai multi oameni traiesc ca un pipirig, uitandu-se in jos si neridicand capul decat atunci cand e prea tarziu. Sau numai atunci cand zunt vanturi si furtuni deasupra capului lui. Iubitii Domnului, sa stiti ca de cele mai multe ori, firea asta pamanteasca  si Cel Rau ne da de fruca si ne face sa luptam lupte inutile.

In aceasta zi, in care privirea noastra este indreptata inspre Hristos, ma rog lui Dumnezeu sa ne dea darul simplitatii. Sa ne ajute Dumnezeu sa ne debarasam de inutilul vietii noastre si Dumnezeu sa ne orienteze sufletele catre El. Mai intai de toate, as vrea sa va spun dragii mei ca Cel Rau ar dori sa fim oameni care sa mergem la biserica, sa asistam la un program sau la o slujba si sa ne intoarcem de acolo poate putin mai entuziasti, poate putin mai sentimentali, mai patrunsi de un gand, dar neschimbati. Astazi este ziua care vorbeste cel mai mult despre valoarea ce este Dumnezeu, pentru ca un crestinism fara cruce este un crestinism fara putere. Un crestinism fara cruce, un crestinism fara rastignire este un crestinism care pur si simplu nu v-a schimba pe nimeni- nici pe tine, nici pe mine si nici lumea din imprejur.

Astazi e ziua in care Mantuitorul s-a rastignit. E ziua in care crucea s-a inaltat spre cer, ca o dovada a faptului ca Dumnezeu iubeste, nu cu vorba, ci cu fapta si adevarul. Este ziua in care temelia crestinatatii sta in faptul rastignirii. Este ziua care vorbeste despre faptul ca nu poate fi ispasire de unul singur. Ca nimeni dintre noi, cata educatie ar avea si oricat de bine ar fi situat financiar nu va putea sa-si cumpere locul in cer. Este ziua in care mai presus de toate aflam ca omul este falimentar de cand se naste. Este ziua in care Dumnezeu ne vorbeste despre faptul ca nimeni, absolut nimeni nu se poate mantui pe pamantul acesta  fara de credinta in Isus Hristos, care S-a rastignit. Nimeni, niciodata nu va putea sa-si cumpere locul pe care Dumnezeu benevol i l-a pregatit in cer.

Stiti ce ar vrea Cel Rau? Sa avem o religie fara cruce, sa avem o mantuire fara lacrimi, sa avem un cer care sa aiba numai rai, iad sa nu aiba niciodata. Sa credem ca Dumnezeu este un batranel care imparte bomboane la copii Lui, la nepoteii Sai. Dumnezeul nostru, o spun in aceasta seara sa auda fiecare, impreuna cu heruvimii, impreuna cu ingerii, impreuna cu arhanghelii, El este sfant, sfant, sfant. Asta ma invata ziua de vineri, ca un Dumnezeu sfant a reclamat faptul ca pe pamantul acesta nu locuieste nici un om neprihanit. Crucea Domnului Isus Hristos invata ca nu s-a gasit nici macar un singur om fara pacat, nici tu si nici eu nu suntem lipsiti de pacat.

Acolo, la cruce, Domnul Isus a spus, „In dreptatea Mea va trebui sa dati socoteala de viata pe care o traiti. Va intreb in aceasta seara, iubitii Domnului, verificati-va si cantariti-va constiinta si intrebati-va daca gandurile voastre sunt indreptate ascultarii lui Hristos. Daca vorbirea voastra este dreasa cu sare, daca inima voastra apartine lui Dumnezeu, daca faptele voastre sunt o lumina pe pamantul acesta, daca viata voastra este o mireasma de viata spre viata.

Atat de tare, in ultima perioada, as putea sa spun ca am ajuns sa urasc tot ce este la televizor despre Dumnezeu. Nu mai imi plac de loc lucrurile artistice si imi repugna ideea sa trezesc in om un sentimentalism ieftin care odata cu iesitul din biserica nu ii foloseste la nimic. M-am saturat sa vad lacrimi care sunt create de emotiile de moment. Imi doresc din toata inima ca radacina noastra sa fie adanca in Hristos. Sa nu fie generata dintre niste lucruri care odata cu trecerea lor sa ma lase neschimbat, sa ma lase cum am fost. Nu mai imi plac realizarile artistice. Nu-mi plac nici filmele lui Mel Gibson. Nu ca as avea ceva cu el. Nu imi place pentru ca exista ceva in lucrul acesta care ne departeaza in mod paradoxal de adevar. Exista o legatura intre om si cer si exista o punte pe care pasim spre cerul lui Dumnezeu si aceasta se numeste sfanta Scriptura. Adancindu-ne privirea in legea lui Dumnezeu, primind in inima ta cuvintele care vor aduce un rod in viata ta, odata cu emisiunea care trece, odata cu emotia unui film au disparut toate lucrurile. Dar Cuvantul lui Dumnezeu, care il strangi in inima ta este duh si viata. El aduce putere oricarui inimi credincioase. Credinta noastra nu este o credinta conjuncturala. Nu este o credinta de tip emotiv. Este o credinta care se bazeaza pe credinta in Isus Hristos, credinta lui Isus Hristos care ne-a fost lasata. (Notite din primele 10 minute)

Greg Laurie’s message at the National Day of Prayer 2013

…we look at the enemies from the outside, but there’s problems on the inside. Historian Will Durant, in his book on Rome’s history ‘Caesar and Christ’, said, „A great civilization is not conquered from without, ‘til it has first been destroyed from within. The essential cause of Rome’s decline lay in her people and her morals.” And it’s been cited multiple times that what’s different between Rome and America is we were founded on Judaeo-Christian values, despite what revisionists want to tell us. We have so many problems in our country today, that it has become freedom from religion, rather than freedom of religion….

…a family can survive without a nation, but a nation cannot survive without families…

Ravi Zacharias – The temptation of Jesus

RaviIn the wilderness, Satan tempted Jesus’ intellect, will, & imagination, but Jesus responded with the Truth, the Word of God. The same tempter came to Him on the cross at Calvary. Our salvation was totally dependent on Jesus’ response to temptation. Like Jesus, our response to temptation is not determined in the moment of temptation, but by our world view, our prior convictions. The Truth is that life is sacred because it is given by a Holy God. The greatest pleasure in life is knowing how to worship God. When we surrender our intellect, will, & imagination to Him, worship is the beautiful expression…

Ravi Zacharias – A response to the Boston tragedy

Ravifrom http://www.rzim.org/ May 3, 2013

It has been a little over two weeks since the atrocity was committed in Boston by the murderous intent of two young men. University students supposedly on scholarships, family on welfare payments, and all the benefits of receiving, with no moral obligation. How sad it is to see the face of that little eight-year-old boy who had just come to have a fun day with his family only to become a part of the death list and a victim of a cold blooded and calculated act. What parent can ever get over that? What country can afford to not stop and ask “why” until we know the truth?

How does one make judgments on such matters? How do we examine our own beliefs so as to deny such people with violent intent their murderous goals?

I travel an awful lot. I visit countries that do not like Americans. With that prejudice in many a country, I am quizzed as to why I am there. In the Middle East on more than one occasion I have been asked to come and meet the Chief of Intelligence and quizzed. This is the way my last quizzing went in Syria about three years ago:

“Mr. Zacharias, we know you are visiting here. We just want to caution you not to get engaged in any political activity or make any comments on politics.”

I assured them I would honor that. Then he went on to say, “But you are very welcome here. We need people like you.”

It was astounding to hear that. Why would he make such a comment when the prevailing religion there was not my faith, nor what I came to preach?  For one, he knew the Christians there posed no threat to the regime but were a peaceable minority. The rest of the conversation made it clear. But there was obviously more to why he said that. I asked, “Can you tell me what you think of the situation in this part of the world?”

With beads in his hand as he compulsively scrolled through them out of sheer habit, he quietly said, “I don’t give this part of the world more than five years, and this whole place will blow up.” Rather taken aback by such a drastic pronouncement, I asked him what he meant. It was clear that they knew of rebellious forces working to topple the government and spread turmoil in that area. Ironically, when it all happened, including his own assassination, our media naively branded it “The Arab Spring.” Really? Is that what we are witnessing in Libya, in Egypt, in Iran after the Shah? Is that what spring looks like politically?

This ignorance or deliberately distorted way of thinking, supporting bloody and ruthless acts to supposedly topple dictators, is precisely what that part of the world is now experiencing. Suddenly, revolutions are the “in” thing and any establishment is at risk, as forces that destabilize are gleefully supported by the media elite, the intellectual elite, and the entertainment elite. We pontificate without the slightest understanding of history, religion, or of cultural distinctives. The average citizen is once again sacrificed at the altar of demagogic factions each seeking the power to enforce and dictate.

This abysmal failure in the media elite, to understand history and worldview, now puts America facing possible extinction herself. Those are not overstated words.

When one gets on to a plane, you hear, “Your safety is our first priority.” Evidently, in the journey of life itself, our power brokers don’t feel the same for their citizens. A visitor’s rights seem to be the first priority; those who seek our destruction are given greater privileges than our children who enjoy and love this land.

Something is wrong. Dreadfully wrong. Our definitions are at an all-time confusion, our values at an all-time low, our fiscal policies at an all-time danger, our beliefs at an all-time peril, and yet we want to tell our young people that we are building for their future.

Do our leaders ever sit down and read the primary sources to understand what lies beneath these worldviews to which we are pandering? We brand a religion “peaceful” or “great” without even reading its text. Only an uninformed person can make such sweeping statements. This does not assure us that our safety is a priority.

There is so much one can say on what needs to be done to provide for our safety. I simply resist the temptation and will not go into all of that, but rather respond in two ways. First, we must ask our political representatives to convene a formal study on this particular worldview of millions who have explicitly or implicitly screamed for our destruction. Adolf Hitler told the world what he was planning to do. The naïve of that time did not take him seriously. It took one of the bloodiest and most senseless wars in history to stop that genocide orchestrated by him. What will it take for us to wake up to the avowed threat of our time?

Second, I suggest that the rights we give our immigrants must be granted only by strict means of scrutiny. I went through that when I first moved to the west. My brother and I were quizzed thoroughly. I respected that. But that was over four decades ago. We are now politically correct and politically endangered at the same time. As I write this, I am about to depart for one particular country. I will be there for five days. To get a visa, I had to list all the countries I have visited in the last ten years. That was a task and a half. Did I object?  No. They are protecting their political system and they have a right to demand of me disclosure that they feel is necessary to keep their values intact. Anyone without subversive intent will not be afraid of such scrutiny.

But in our homeland we have become so all-encompassing that the only thing we don’t have any more is “values.” Interestingly, that was a term coined by the nihilists and existentialists to replace absolutes. When absolutes went, values came. When counter values came, our own values went. When our own values went, we watch a little eight-year-old boy blown to bits and the ones doing it tweet to their friends “LOL.” Such subversives do not fear our legal system. They know the perverse way in which their defenders can use it.

When hate can laugh, decency is crying and America stands at the crossroads of choosing the path of Right or else to bury what is right in the ever-shifting quicksand of so called “rights.”

This is a sad day as we mourn the decimation in Boston. But sadder days are ahead unless we understand what we are dealing with here. What happened in Boston was a deadly atrocity. Our failure to stem the rot will be a suicidal tragedy. We have confused what is lawful with what is legal.

Chesterton said it well: “For under the smooth legal surface of our society there are already moving very lawless things. We are always near the breaking-point when we care only for what is legal and nothing for what is lawful. Unless we have a moral principle about such delicate matters as marriage and murder, the whole world will become a welter of exceptions with no rules. There will be so many hard cases that everything will go soft.”

This is America today. We do not know the essential difference between what is lawful and what is legal. Our moral reasoning is dying before our eyes. Nobody knows this better than the lawless.
