“Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.” - 1 Peter 2:17

 

Peter’s letter to the elect children of God (1 Pet. 1:2) is a letter of encouragement to faithfully persevere in the faith, even in the midst of persecution, tribulation, and suffering.  The readers of this epistle were facing persecution from without, even from the government under which they were under authority. The Roman Emperor Nero had begun a severe persecution of Christians in 64 AD near the penning of this letter.  Nevertheless, in 1 Peter 2:13-17 these believers are instructed to be obedient unto the governmental authorities, and verse 17 is a brief four sentence summary of the attitudes that God’s children must have towards all men, the church, the Lord God, and the ultimate governmental authority.

Good question. I'm assuming that you are asking about 2 Peter 3:9. Below is a few thoughts.

Are we self indulged? PDF Print E-mail

Let me relate to you a frustrating experience from earlier today. My oldest heathen starts kindergarten next week so I thought I would treat him with McDonald's today for lunch. I'm not a fan but the kids love the poison. About half way through lunch I looked up and saw an old lady with a walker walking through the restaurant. As she attempted to exit she began to struggle with the door. I watched in anger as I viewed the “men,” that did in fact see her, continue to play on their phones and shove food in their mouth. Furious at this point, I left my children unattended (watched them through the window) while I helped her to her car. I was left sitting there wondering if this is really who we have become. Are we really this self indulged? Before someone blames this on an age demographic, ethnicity, political or economic group, there were all kinds of people sitting at tables. As frustrating as this sounds, two things did come out of this that is profitable.

Was Jesus eternally begotten? If so, what does that mean? PDF Print E-mail

A question answered for one of our readers:

Was Jesus eternally begotten? If so, what does that mean?

The phrase in question is found in multiple Baptist and Christian Confessions from yesteryear. In short, the phrase simply conveys the idea that Jesus has eternally existed as the only begotten Son of God. Note again, it doesn't say that he was generated at some point in eternity, but instead, that he has always existed as the only begotten from all eternity. I do, however, usually stray away from using the term "eternally begotten" because it often causes confusion. This truth, and said phrase, is often perverted by various false Christian denominations to say that Christ was created or produced sometime in eternity. Again, this is why when explaining the phrase I usually point out that it doesn't mean that Christ was begotten in eternity, but instead it means that he has eternally existed as the only begotten.
