We are constantly surprised to find out how many things that we encounter in daily life encourage us to try out ‘strange gods.’

This is PART 2 of an ongoing series, The intertwining of Eastern Mysticism with Western Culture - Why Christians should be concerned about it.

The Sunrise’s “Song for Ed" was written about someone who passed away from cancer. It poses the question, is this person going to heaven? How will he get there?

Philippians 3:20-21: “For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ:”

“Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”

Pastor Chuck Smith founder of Calvary Chapel

The Jesus Movement by The Sunrise

Lyrics:

A random farm house in North Marin county.
Communal living space, the first one.
Considered the first community of the fledgling Jesus Movement.
Life was hard work, but it was better than ‘church.’
They found a better Way.

They painted houses, and digging up all the ditches,
just to keep the doors open. It was the Lord’s work.
They found a better Way.

And local pastors took notice like Chuck Smith from Calvary.
Provided some of the means, and all of the respectability.

And God decided to open the doors through hippies.

The House of Acts served as a model for similar ministries.
Spreading Jesus, spreading Jesus across the United States.
And Lonnie Frisbee spoke up, Keith Green and Larry Norman.
And Christian papers popped up like Right On! Right On!

And God decided to open the doors through hippies.

Those days are here again, happy days are here again.
Spreading Jesus to our friends, happy days are here again.
And those days are here again, happy days are here again.
Spreading Jesus to our friends, happy days are here again.

Suddenly churches didn’t care about their clothes or hair length!
The kids were just spreading Jesus all around.
Spreading His love all around.
It was the century’s biggest movement of the Holy Spirit.
The Jesus Movement.

And God is doing it again.

Monism, absolute truth and propitiation…

Believing that we each have our own personal truth is akin to what would be called “monism,” which is the idea that ‘god is everything’ and ‘everything is god.’ This is a view that there is no absolute truth, and a relative view of right and wrong.

As Christians, we believe that there IS absolute truth, and things that are right are right no matter what, and things that are wrong are wrong no matter what.

Also in our belief is the fact that for salvation, an individual absolutely needs to put his or her faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is God’s chosen method to reconcile a fallen humanity back to himself.

This is shown by the Bible verse 1 John 2:2 - “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.”

Propitiation means “the turning away of wrath by an offering.” Propitiation means “placating or satisfying the wrath of God by the atoning sacrifice of Christ.”

Jesus Christ was the sinless sacrifice that God required to be both Just and Merciful to a sinful humanity. So, that is the reason that Christians place faith in Jesus. He has lovingly given us a way to reconnect to God forever.
