Msg #1311 Scruples in Your Stewardship

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

There is much to be learned in failure. A little grey matter allows us to learn from someone else's failure without our own stumble. Isaiah 5:1-7 puts Israel's failed stewardship into song. Not much rhyme or meter but like all Hebrew poetry it is profoundly loaded with pertinent depth. “What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it?” Profound! Jesus takes up the refrain in parable in Mark 12:1-12. Self centered, greedy, unscrupulous, pathologically violent men took over God's vineyard. Likewise, a new pope cannot erase the Crusades, John Wycliffe and William Tyndale's blood, nor bloody Mary's smoldering faggots at Smith's Field, John Rogers burning with his Bibles, Thomas Cranmer's execution for standing on the Great Bible, or unmitigated Jesuit Tyranny! Roman 'Christianity' is replete with the unscrupulous! Is yours? Five times Christ repeats the commission he left his saints. “Go ye and teach all nations.” (Matt 28:18-20) “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15-16) “It behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: that repentance (NOT 'penance') and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations.” (Luke 24:46-48) “As my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” (John 20:21) “And ye shall be witnesses unto me” (Acts1:8) The wide road of corporate 'Christianity' via catholicism, protestantism, calvinism, and/or denominationalism gives His vineyard a very black-eye. There is a narrow gate and a straight path. (Matt17:13-14) “Strive to enter in at the strait gate.” (Luke13:24). Robe yourself in scruples. Be a good steward. Take up His resources. Take up the cross. Do what your Lord commands, and occupy until He comes back to say “Well done thou good and faithful steward.” Preach the Gospel.
