On the night of 31st December 2011, even as we gathered at the church to say good bye to year 2011 I pondered, “what does it mean to step into a brand new year?” I remembered 3 things.
A. Humans loose the value of things very fast: Couple of days ago we kicked 2011 out and welcomed 2012 into life. It will be only a matter of time before we get rid of 2012 and say hello to 2013.

I am writing this blog post in response to an email I received from Daniel Craig (not his real name) two days later I published my sermon on tithing. Daniel in his email made a sincere request that I take time to answer a couple of questions he has on tithing. Daniel, I am impressed by your desire to learn and do what is right. Below you will find answers to all of your questions.

Since you must have listened to similar sermons many times before I wont blame if you are not expecting anything out of the ordinary. There are two reasons why I picked this topic however. First, those who are new to faith need to be educated on the practice of tithing. Secondly, towards the conclusion of this sermon I hope to deal with the right way of tithing than reasons for tithing. Do note this sermon is not intended to condemn any of you but to give hope. So please relax and let the Holy Spirit of God to speak to your hearts.

“Antinomianism” (from the Greek anti and nomos, ‘against the law’) is one of the most virulent forms of heterodoxies about Christianity. It promotes two erroneous teachings.
1. Christians are justified by faith through grace, and since sanctification is a divine work, good works do not in any way promote salvation (true…), but neither do evil works hinder human salvation (false…).
2. Dispensationalists in particular argue that the laws of God are for Israel and not for believers under divine grace.

This morning I do not intend to complicate your Christmas by choosing to preach a heavily theological message with a theological title. It should be noted however that Christmas is surrounded by so much of biblical truths that it’s not just another simple festive event as the world likes to think. I do believe understanding these truths about Christmas surely helps us to understand why do we need Jesus.
