Romans 10:2

For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. 

  • Not Feeling the need

  • Zeal without knowledge

in the Social Gospel,

Institutionalism,

And church sponsored recreation

Culminated in the Cross Roads Controversy, the Boston Movement,

Evangelistic oversight,

Satellite churches,

The discipling movement

What are the Wherefores of Rejecting Christ?

Romans 10:3

For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness.

  • Not Feeling the need

  • Zeal without knowledge

  • Being self-righteous


Luke 18 9 14 l.jpg

How do we present self as self-righteous??

Luke 18:9-14

By comparing self to others

He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt: 10 “Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’ 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ 14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”


How might we compare ourselves to others l.jpg

How might we compare ourselves to others?

By evil suspicions & stubborn argument

1 Timothy 6:3-5

If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not agree with the sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teaching that accords with godliness, 4 he is puffed up with conceit and understands nothing. He has an unhealthy craving for controversy and for quarrels about words, which produce envy, dissension, slander, evil suspicions, 5 and constant friction among people who are depraved in mind and deprived of the truth, imagining that godliness is a means of gain

How might we compare ourselves to others?

By speaking against a brother

James 4:11

Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.

What are the Wherefores of Rejecting Christ?

Romans 10:4-13

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes….  

  • Not Feeling the need

  • Zeal without knowledge

  • Being self-righteous

  • Not understanding that the law pointed to Christ

Galatians 3:23-24

Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed. 24 So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.

The temple

Priesthood

Sacrifices

Covenant

And all parts of these


Worshippers of the law vs worshipping deity l.jpg

Worshippers of the Law vs Worshipping Deity

John 5:39

You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me,.

In worshipping law, WE sacrifice and reject Christ.


What is the remedy for rejection l.jpg

What is the Remedy for Rejection?

Romans 10:14-17

How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” 16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” 17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

True belief in what we hear taught, that is true


Slide16 l.jpg

True belief in what we hear taught, that is true

Hebrews 2:1

Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.

Hebrews 4:1

Therefore, while the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it.

Hebrews 3:12

Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God.

I Thessalonians 2:13

And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God,which is at work in you believers  


Just a side note on romans 10 15 l.jpg

Just a side note on Romans 10:15

The church that is not interested in evangelism won’t long be interested in edification and growth.

Romans 10:15

…how are they to hear without someone preaching? 15 And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”
