  • Judith Lieu Discovery Of Tradition Analysis

    Humanity has long sought safety inside groups with a similar identity. The existence of tribes or clans based on family throughout the history of the world serves a simple benchmark of what an oft-sought community looks like: It looks like me. One of the many segments of history where we see this desire for like-identified communities is in the development and discourse that frames up early structures of “orthodoxy” and “heresy” in the second through fourth centuries. Driven by the idea that comfort and security could be found in like-minded groups, the early Christians clashed over everything from dates to Christology in order to form a cohesive, definitive truth- something that continues to evade Christians and still remains out of reach…

  • Colossians 3: 1-15 Analysis

    “Sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” (ESV Colossians 3:5) We still feel exactly what Paul writes in Colossians 3:8, “Anger, wrath, malice, slander.” (ESV Colossians 3:5) As Christian people, who intend to follow Christ, we sometimes do not really follow Christ.

Leading others consists of knowing what the Christian life looks like, sharing that with others, and staying faithful and truthful in what we say…
