How to achieve world peace?

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Diplomacy, Global Polity, International Justice, technology

Being a true Muslim – in the sense of “one who submits to God (יהוה/God/الله/ईश्वर)” – we submit our freewill to God’s will, just like Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane, saying:

“Not my will, Father, but Thine be done!” (Luke 22:42).

This kind of submission is hard to come by among Christians, who hang on to the “Fallacy of Faith Alone” absent works-of-submission to the Lord’s will — a win for the Muslims, if you ask me.  The Lord wants all to be Muslims in the true sense of the term, not mere “faith-alone” trumpeters.

Here is my take on being a true Muslim: Lordship Salvation & True Muslim.

This disposition of being reconcilable not only gives us a voice among the Muslims, who have a point, but also provides support for being One Humanity under the Headship and Lordship of Christ (ecumenical ministry based on Jn17:21-23), while satisfying Matt10:41 paraphrased —

“He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward, [and he who receives a Son of God in the name of a Son of God will receive a Son of God’s reward]”.

This agape justice is expected to be satisfying to both parties, where both give-and-take some.

Thereby, attaining world peace–a prevention that is better than cure; an alternative narrative of peace and hope.

Now, the New Heavens & the New Earth is not what is trumped-up to be. Frank Viola, with whom i agree with on this point, has this to say:

Although the Bible speaks of a new heaven and a new earth, the foundation of the earth will never pass away. The Lord is not going to do away with the world of space, time, and matter. Instead, God is going to renovate the earth, judge all things by fire, and burn up certain of its elements. Some have mistakenly embraced the notion that God hates this dirty little planet and has promised to rescue His people out of it before He trashes it. But Scripture teaches no such thing. Indeed, Scripture repeatedly warns that “the world” is evil. But the Greek words translated “world” in these passages do not refer to the earth, but to the world system (kosmos) or the present age (aion) that is marked by the corruptions of sin. The Bible makes clear that this present age is evil, that the world system is headed up by satan, and that God will judge the world system in the end. But it teaches with equal force that the earth itself is precious to God, who has wonderful plans for it. Because the world presently stands under the defilement of sin, God’s people are strangers and pilgrims to it. We are told that our citizenship is in the heavens, and we are not to be attached to that which is earthly. This present age and the world system are temporal and will pass away. At the same time, the new creation has arrived with the resurrection of Jesus. While we are not from this world (the world system), we are certainly for the world (the earth and the people who populate it)—just as Jesus was not from this world but for it. The kingdom of God is certainly for the world, as Jesus prayed: “Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

So we are stewards of this planet and we cannot irresponsibly say: “This earth is going to be destroyed anyway; so why bother with climate change, world peace, etc?”

Consider this patent pending Gross Save Ecosystem-of-Everything for Gross Salvation through a Christocratic New World Order.

In this Christocratic New World Order, per Rev7:9, we hope to not only achieve peace but also unite all nations, people, tongues, and things with our invention, branded as Agape TiE® Totally Integrated Environment®:

With the CROSS, God Condemned Sin forever!

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life, Theology

 

Yes, by sending Him to the cross, He condemned sin in the flesh forever (Rom8:1-2; 3, 4-5). Therefore, “Go & sin no more!” (John8:11)

 

Salvation is past, present and future. We are saved from the penalty of sin. We are being saved from the power of sin. And we will be saved from the presence of sin.

“Dead in Trespasses” (Eph-2:1)

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Theology

When Paul says, we are “dead in trespasses and sins” (Eph2:1), we are not somehow actually dead!

  • =/= dead, requiring resuscitation;
  • == “whoever does not believe [in Christ] STANDS condemned ALREADY…” (John 3:18b).

“Faith comes from hearing” (Rom10:17). Hearing or teachability comes from ultra-humbling (Matt18:3). And upon hearing & confessing that we are sinners needing a Savior, the Good News about the Grace of God, available to ALL is granted (1Peter5:5) and upon receiving it by faith, we are saved from damnation.

Luther’s “Doctrine of Demons” (1Tim-4:1)

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life

Martin Luther

Bk Singh correctly said:

Paul’s such categorically paradoxical statements, in the excitement of battle with Peter, belittles the requirement of a righteous living in order to earn divine forgiveness. These declarations of Eph2:8-9NKJV by Paul are absolutely arbitrary which for Luther became, “Sin hard, but believe harder!”

In support of what is clearly a Licence to Sin (Jude 1:4NIV), the “Doctrine of Demons” (1Tim4:1NKJV),
Ampat Varghese offers citations from Luther’s Works itself:

“If you are a preacher of Grace, then preach a true, not a fictitious grace; if grace is true, you must bear a true and not a fictitious sin. God does not save people who are only fictitious sinners. Be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly. For he is victorious over sin, death, and the world. As long as we are here we have to sin. This life in not the dwelling place of righteousness but, as Peter says, we look for a new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. . . . Pray boldly-you too are a mighty sinner.” (Weimar ed. vol. 2, p. 371; Letters I, “Luther’s Works,” American Ed., Vol 48. p. 281- 282, emphasis added)

13. If you are a preacher of mercy, do not preach an imaginary but the true mercy. If the mercy is true, you must therefore bear the true, not an imaginary sin. God does not save those who are only imaginary sinners. Be a sinner, and let your sins be strong, but let your trust in Christ be stronger, and rejoice in Christ who is the victor over sin, death, and the world. We will commit sins while we are here, for this life is not a place where justice resides. We, however, says Peter (2. Peter 3:13) are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth where justice will reign. It suffices that through God’s glory we have recognized the Lamb who takes away the sin of the world. No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill or commit adultery thousands of times each day. Do you think such an exalted Lamb paid merely a small price with a meager sacrifice for our sins? Pray hard for you are quite a sinner.

On the day of the Feast of St. Peter the Apostle, 1521
