Eat The Blood

In Leviticus 17:10-12 we read of the prohibition against eating blood. God is said to set His face against the person who does this, in fact the person who eats blood will be cut out of the covenant altogether. The reason for this prohibition is that the life of the flesh is in the blood. […]

How Jesus Cleansed The World

In my last post I made the audacious claim that Christians are required to obey the Law of God. Part of my argument was bolstered by James remark, “You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone” (James 2:24).

Grace Working On Grace

Grace and works seems to be a difficult discussion. The church I was brought up in held to a distinction between God’s grace and His commandments, as if He were divided somehow.
