Values 170811 Values 170811 Presentation Transcript

  • What We Need Are Values
  • Where they should come from Take precedent above our culture  They need to come from more than our upbringing or education The best place they should come from is from being ‘a follower of the way’ Often times what people say have ‘Christian’ values they do not, and their values have nothing to do with Scripture or more importantly being a ‘follower of the way’ or of becoming like Christ.
  • Which are very important to people who want to be ‘follower of the way’  1.Non Religious Christianity  2. Relationships as paramount, Jesus died to restore relationships, relationship with God  3.Relationship with each other are central  4. A Christological interpretation of Scripture, i.e. Christ is central to scripture, so you work back from who He is.  5. Theology = one of Grace Freedom  6. Theology of there is neither Jew nor Greek, bond nor free, male nor female, so the leadership of females is not an issue, neither is colour or earthly nationality
  • That  1.Have a lifestyle that reflects the character of Jesus, thereby we take on the mantle of Christ  2. Have what we consider is one that has relationships that gives meaning to life  3.Knows that Christ is central in the story of God’s creation, because he restores perfection  4.Knows that Grace fulfils, then surpasses law and brings freedom  5. Values the equality of all, where all are identified in the cross
  •  Have a look at what is the difference between the thinking that was Hebraic and what is and was Greek thinking and value  This would be another way of checking our real Values.  And I think it would give you quite a surprise  You will find an comparison analysis in my book Jacob a Fatherless Generation.
  •  Romans 8:29  Amplified Bible (AMP)  29For those whom He foreknew [of whom He was [a]aware and [b]loved beforehand], He also destined from the beginning [foreordaining them] to be molded into the image of His Son [and share inwardly His likeness], that He might become the firstborn among many brethren.  Romans 12:2  New Living Translation (NLT)  2 Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
