  • Beskorisne Stvari

    Jesus calls Tax Collector Matthew to follow him

    Ako crkva nije pozvana boriti se protiv grijeha, zašto nas Apostol savjetuje da izbjegavamo izvjesne stvari? Pavao piše Korinćanima – “Sve mi je dopušteno! Ali - sve ne koristi.” (1. Kor. 6:12) Kao prvo, kakva otvoreno odvažna izjava! Crkvi je sve dopušteno! Da, mi stojimo opravdani po Kristu, i stoga Bog ne računa grijehe koje mi počinimo u našem tijelu. Prema tome sve nam je dopušteno! Međutim da li sve koristi utrci koja stoji pred nama?

  • El problema de muerte

    Why do people die? Was it supposed to be this way? Were human beings destined to live and die as a natural order of things that atheists claim to be the case? Animals die, don’t they? What happens when a man dies? What did Jesus Christ say about death? Does science agree with the bible on the state of death? What is a soul according to the Bible? Can the soul die? What about the spirit? Won't that live on after death?

  • Good News (For Real)

  • Morality Police

    Most young people are disenchanted with today’s Christian churches as they see a widely prevalent ‘holier than thou’ attitude and a judgmental mentality among churchgoers, irrespective of their denominations. Do the teachings of Jesus support such an attitude? Are his true followers supposed to align with him or should they imitate the Pharisees who called Jesus a drunkard because he wined and dined with sinners?

  • Moralna Politika

    Većina mladih ljudi nezadovoljna je s današnjim Kršćanskim crkvama kada vide naširoko rasprostranjeni stav “svetiji od tebe” i osuđivalački mentalitet među vjernicima, bez obzira na njihove denominacije. Da li Isusova učenja podržavaju takav stav? Da li bi se njegovi pravi sljedbenici trebali uskladiti s njim ili oponašati Farizeje koji su nazvali Isusa pijanicom zato što je pio i jeo s grešnicima?

  • Pokajanje - Promjena Razmišljanja

    Bez obzira na stoljeća zlouporabe Hrvatske riječi, kada idemo k izvornom Grčkom, mi vidimo da pokajanje (Grčki: metanoia) znači “promjena razmišljanja.” O čemu stoga moramo promijeniti razmišljanje? Zašto Biblija kaže da je čovječanstvo u neopravdanom stanju? U Starozavjetnim vremenima, Bog je dao Izraelu skup pravila nazvanih Savez Zakona. Što je bila svrha toga? Kako je to bilo povezano s grijehom? I zašto je Bog dao savez Zakona ako je znao da će biti Novi Savez?

  • Problem Smrti

    Zašto ljudi umiru? Je li trebalo biti tako? Jesu li ljudska bića bila osuđena da žive i umru kao prirodni poredak stvari kao što ateisti tvrde da je slučaj? Životinje umiru, zar ne? Što se događa kada čovjek umre? Što Isus Krist kaže o smrti? Da li se znanost slaže sa Biblijom oko stanja mrtvih? Što je duša prema Bibliji? Može li duša umrijeti? Što je duh? Neće li to živjeti nakon smrti?

  • Repentance - A Change of Mind

    Disregarding centuries of misuse of the English word, when we go to the original Greek, we see that repentance (Greek: metanoia) means 'a change of mind'. So what is it that we need to change our minds about? Why does the Bible say mankind is in an unjustified state? In Old Testament times, God gave Israel a set of rules called the Law Covenant. What was the deal there? How is that related to sin? And why did God provide the Law covenant (the Old Testament) if he knew there would be a New Testament?

  • Unprofitable Things

    Jesus calls Tax Collector Matthew to follow him

    If the church is not called to fight sin, why do the Apostles advise us to avoid certain things? Paul writes to the Corinthians - ‘All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable’ - 1Cor 6:12. First of all, what an unabashedly bold statement! All things are lawful for the church! Yes, we stand justified by Christ, and hence God does not count sins we commit in our flesh. So all things are indeed lawful for us! But are all things profitable for the race marked out for us?

  • मौत की समस्या

    மனிதர்கள் மரித்துப்போவதேன்? இது இயற்கை நியதியா? மிருகங்கள் போல் மடிந்து போவதுதான் நம் விதியா? ஒருவன் மரிக்கும்போது என்ன நேருகிறது? மரணத்தைப்பற்றி இயேசு என்ன சொன்னார்? மரணநிலை பற்றி வேதாகமம் கூறுவதை அறிவியல் ஏற்றுக்கொள்கிறதா? வேதாகமத்தின்படி ஆத்துமா என்பது என்ன? ஆத்துமா மரித்துப் போகக்கூடுமா? மரணத்திற்குப்பின் ‘ஆவி’ வாழுமா?
