unprofitable things

  • 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?

  • 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?
