The portion of Scripture we will be studying comes from the Gospel of Luke. It’s about a confrontation Jesus had with a religious group called Sadducees. They don’t believe in life after death and reject the idea of resurrection. Jesus silenced these men with some profound, yet simple truth. This is an interesting lesson.
This lesson begins with Jesus teaching the disciples to not fear those who can kill the body, but to fear God who after killing the body can cast the person into hell. Central to this thought is our need to love Jesus more than ourselves. This is necessary if we are going to live out the Biblical faith. From this subject Jesus moves on to teach what is often called the unforgiveable sin. You need to listen to this podcast to learn what that sin really is.
There are some very difficult subjects that the Bible addresses. Today, in our continuing study on Holy Fire, we will delve into one of these difficult subjects–judgment. We will see holy God’s holy fire is used as an instrument of judgment. Though this is a challenging study, it will be very benifical to learn a little more about our God that is a consuming fire.
