Searching for a true christian

22 08 2007

Christianity today is far from the original which Jesus has introduced it, or more (hmph, theologically correct), the Apostles and Paul have introduced. I was reading this book “The irresistible revolution – living as an ordinary radical” by Shane Claiborne. It was an amazing book, which echoed the search within for a true radical, simple faith, and no nonsense meaning to what’s the original Christianity that was introduced 2000 years ago.

I think the bits and pieces of this book is echoed by the bits and pieces of this blog in many ways, looking past the facade of sparkling preachers, and glamorous ministry to what it matters most, living by the Word of God and follow what Jesus taught. How far have i fallen, to think i can play this game of Christianity and hope to be found an approved and diligent worker in the eyes of God! No way, i need to repent and start living it every words and iota in the scripture. Time to be radical!!!!

Oh for the start, i’ve finished doing up our church website at http://www.paradiseofgod.com.sg Please visit and give your comments yea?

Hi Dan

I have recently discovered that there is a distinction between the Word of God (Theos) and the Word of Christ (Christos).

Rom 10:17 tells us that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christos.

And the context of that verse is found in Rom 10:14-15 where it talks about preachers being the one to bring good news.

I would say that a true Christian is one who hungers and thirts for the Word of Christ.

He displays that longing by being willing to stand in line for hours to hear that Word being preached.

And we see that example right here in Singapore at

And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb
that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. Luke11.27-28
