Bible on abortion

The following may look “not enough conservative”, but my purpose is to strictly follow the Bible:

(Job 3:16) “or as a hidden untimely birth I had not been, as infants who never saw light.”

Bible seems to say (if I understand it correctly) that unborn embryos do not have soul.

I do not say that abortion is good. I just try to make a biblical point on it.

Is killing an unborn embryos well a killing? I do not know, but it seems not to be sending a soul into separation of body, because there is no soul in this case.

The above is just my personal opinion and it may be wrong.


Love is a simple thing

What is love? What the word “love” means in New Testament? These look like very difficult questions.

But the Greek word “agape” for “love” also means “charity”. So love is simply ability to do charity.

(1 Cor. 13)

1 If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don’t have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don’t have love, I am nothing. 3 If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don’t have love, it profits me nothing.

In the past it was about me. I had faith, I was baptized by Spirit and fire and prayed in tongues, I knew more than most other people. I even wanted to help the poor. But I didn’t have charity.

I was seeking for ways to get money for my ministry. It was a business, business attempting to serve God, but not a charity.

I was heavily pressed by the contradiction that I need money for my ministry but should not be greedy.

I was divided between God’s commandments and between my desire to get money for my ministry by any means (such as cursing other people and making them to die because of my curse).

At last (quite hilariously) I tried to put my hope on conforming to the Russian law (I’m from Russia) about charitable organizations. I tried to make me conform to this law, because I saw no other way to overcome my “holy” greed.

I found myself a modern kind of a Pharisee.

But now thanks to End of Gospel teaching I am free from being a Pharisee and have charity in my heart. Read this book.

What should we do?

Many preachers teach that for each deed we need first receive a revelation from God and not to do what God has not explicitly requested us to do.

But what God wants us to do?

(John 6)

28 They said therefore to him, “What must we do, that we may work the works of God?”
29 Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.”

There is no concrete deed we should do, but we should do anything and everything what conforms to the faith. The only good deed we can do is to believe. A deed with faith is good and a deed without faith is not good whatever we do.

(Heb. 11:6) “Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him…”

(Heb. 6:1) “Therefore leaving the teaching of the first principles of Christ, let us press on to perfection—not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works, of faith toward God…”

Our works are “dead”. This means that we sinners cannot do good by our deeds. Our psychic is too broken for us to do good deeds. But Christ opened us another way to serve God, we serve God by our faith.

Faith is implemented in deeds, however:

(Jam. 2)

20 But do you want to know, vain man, that faith apart from works is dead? 21 Wasn’t Abraham our father justified by works, in that he offered up Isaac his son on the altar? 22 You see that faith worked with his works, and by works faith was perfected; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness”;*x4 and he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that by works, a man is justified, and not only by faith. 25 In the same way, wasn’t Rahab the prostitute also justified by works, in that she received the messengers, and sent them out another way? 26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead.


(Ecc. 9:10) “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might…”

We should do everything we can do, this verse teaches.

I do accordingly my faith math research, writing free software, and writing sermons like this one. These are important good deals of faith which change the world. Please support my good deeds with any sum of money.


Sun, stand still on Gibeon! You, moon, stop in the valley of Aijalon!

Joshua 10:12-13 says:

12 Then Joshua spoke to Yahweh in the day when Yahweh delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel, “Sun, stand still on Gibeon! You, moon, stop in the valley of Aijalon!”
13 The sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Isn’t this written in the book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of the sky, and didn’t hurry to go down about a whole day. 14 There was no day like that before it or after it, that Yahweh listened to the voice of a man; for Yahweh fought for Israel.

This is the greatest miracle described in Bible. (“There was no day like that before it or after it, that Yahweh listened to the voice of a man.”)

I believe Bible, it has really happened, despite it is hard to believe, especially knowing modern science which looks to make it totally impossible.

But what is its “least miraculous” (and thus “most scientific”) explanation? I propose the following explanation:

A big alien spaceship with a giant solar sail came near to the Earth. What Israelites really saw was the reflection of the sun and the moon in the sail.

This looks improbable, but at least this is not totally impossible. I believe it has really happened in this way or another.


Importance of opening doors

(Revelation 3) “20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, then I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he with me. 21 He who overcomes, I will give to him to sit down with me on my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father on his throne. 22 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies.”

There are doors in our life. Door is by definition something which separates two connected spaces and can be opened in some way.

Christ teaches us that we should open doors. It may be a scientific breakthrough (that is when not just continuous development of science happens, but well breakthrough) or something other.

To him who both hears Jesus’ voice and opens some door, He gives a high reward. The condition of the reward is both a breakthrough and hearing His voice. If an unbeliever (and even a believer which fails to hear and understand Him) does a breakthrough, he is not rewarded. But we should do breakthroughs to be rewarded.


Blood of Christ is an instrument of payment

(1Pet. 1) 18 knowing that you were redeemed, not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, from the useless way of life handed down from your fathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a faultless and pure lamb, the blood of Christ.

Here we see that (on the heaven) blood of Christ is an instrument of payment, just like as silver and gold are instruments of payment on the Earth.

For something to be used as an instrument of payment, it needs to be precious just like gold, and in this Bible fragment we see that blood of Christ is precious.

By the way in modern Hebrew the word “damim” may be translated both as blood and payments. Coincidence?


Blood of Christ before it was poured

I now found some discrepancy in my understanding of New Testament and blood of Christ:

(Mt. 26:27-28) “27 He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave to them, saying, “All of you drink it, 28 for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the remission of sins.”

(Mr. 14:23-24) “23 He took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave to them. They all drank of it. 24 He said to them, “This is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many.”

How can this be blood of new covenant before the blood of Christ was poured out, “baptized” the underground waters of the Earth and entered into vine plants for us to be able to take Eucharist?

Hope to hear your answers.
