Word of the Week: Fornication

Word of the Week: Fornication

In our Word of the Week series on marriage, today we consider God’s warning against fornication. This is an important word to study and understand in our current “hook up culture” and in a society that encourages any behavior contrary to God’s will. This word is a broad word describing any sexual activity outside of the marriage relationship. Any such activity God expressly condemns as contrary to His will and as sin. Through this command God desires to protect the marriage relationship which is the mechanism He intends to use to give rich blessings to us.

Word of the Week: Mercy

Word of the Week: Mercy

Pastor Mark Tiefel defines the word Mercy as it is used in Scripture. In the Old and New Testaments there were two words for mercy: compassion, or steadfast love. This second word emphasizes the feelings behind the compassion and what it was moved to do. God’s mercy is more than a feeling, is moves Him to action. Mercy also moves us to repentance knowing that God is merciful. We are not worthy of being forgiven. Forgiveness comes from the mercy of God.

Word of the Week: Justice

Word of the Week: Justice

What makes something just or unjust? What is justice? Justice is doing what is right, and this has to be founded on an objective standard that applies universally to all people. The word justice was used by the prophets to describe the coming Savior who would bring “righteousness” or “justice” to the world. But compare that to our world today or the term “social justice” as used in our world. As used by our world this idea is based on subjective, always changing principles. How confusing! This is not true justice! But Jesus is, and there is nothing that can be substituted for that truth and objective standard which comes from God alone.
