Hi Elaine,

Love is known as the "greatest commandment."

But if love must be freely given, how can you "command" love?

In this podcast episode of Outside the Camp, we consider what the Law of Love is all about, why it is impossible for us to obey it, and how God empowers us to fulfill it in spite of our weakness.

Listen now:

THE LAW OF LOVE (PART 2)

Hi Elaine,

Amazing how, right up to the very end, the disciples are still disputing among themselves over which of them would be the greatest!

Pretty typical, right?

Even more amazing is how Luke does not gloss over this fact, or present the disciples as super-spiritual giants.

They were ordinary men who had an extraordinary life following Jesus.

They weren't perfect then, and they weren't perfect later, even with the Holy Spirit leading and guiding them.

Jesus did not demand perfection, but He worked with what He had.

Same for you and for me :-)
Our online Bible study this week focuses on these final moments Jesus had with His disciples and the last lessons He conveyed to them.

These are truths we need to go back and experience again.

Will you join us?

Hi Elaine,

Predicting days, times, and seasons is a favorite pastime for amateur Bible prophecy teachers.

It's only natural.

Whenever someone makes a prediction or a prophecy about things to come, we want to know WHEN.

And when the disciples heard Jesus predicting the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple, they naturally wanted to know, "WHEN will these things be?"

It's a question that Jesus did not answer directly.

That's because (I believe) the answer is two-fold.

It had a literal fulfillment THEN.

But it has a prophetic fulfillment LATER.

It's one of those prophetic double meanings.

Join us for this week's study as we rightly divide the Word and see which applies to THEN and which applies to NOW.

Hi Elaine!

I just completed a massive project...

Over the last 20 years I've been doing these chapter-by-chapter studies of the Bible.

This year I will have completed teaching the entire New Testament.

And I wanted to give these messages the widest possible distribution so we can reach more people with a Christ-centered message.

To do that, I put all these teachings (283 episodes and more than 323 hours of recordings) into a free podcast called "Thru the Bible with Chip Brogden."

The good news is that the podcast is now available worldwide on any devices via iTunes, iHeart Radio, Spotify, YouTube, Spreaker, Google Play, Castbox, Deezer, and Podcast Addict.

So you can SUBSCRIBE to the podcast at any of those places where you listen to podcasts.

OR, you can visit my site and listen, download, and share them from here:
https://chipbrogden.com/ttb

But here's what I need help with...

If you get some time, browse through the Bible teachings on my site and let me know if anything is missing, broken, or out-of-order.

So far I know I'm missing Matthew 3, Romans 4, and 1 Thessalonians 5.

I also know I'm missing Luke 21, 22, 23, and 24 (because that's what we're studying now).

Anything else missing?

Let me know!
https://chipbrogden.com/ttb

Have a great weekend.

Hi Elaine,

"Judgment on the religious system."

Sounds bad, negative, scary, right?

Not if you've seen the Church (Ekklesia) that Jesus is building.

The sooner we let go of man's church and become God's Temple, the better!

Hi Elaine,

Jesus entered Jerusalem, weeping over the judgment that would come upon it.

At the heart of this judgment was the religious system - that whole Temple-based worship of God, controlled by multiple layers of religious authority: chief priests, scribe, elders, Pharisees, and Sadducees.

Jesus did not endorse their system of worship; instead, He exposed it as a hypocritical sham.

What a shock it must have been to realize that this religion about God had become more important than God Himself.

Traditions of men were more important than Love, Light, and Life.

Indeed, this religious system sought to destroy the Son of God, and successfully betrayed Him to the Romans for crucifixion.

Amazingly, Christianity is doing (has done) the same thing that Judaism did.

But, whereas Judaism only dominated one small nation and one small city, Christianity (or as I like to say, "Churchianity") dominates billions of people and is currently the largest religion on earth.

And yet, this Religion About Jesus has become more important than a Relationship With Jesus.

So how can we read about God's judgment on Judaism and think that God's won't judge Churchianity?

Hopefully, we will learn the lessons recorded for us in Scripture and not make the same mistakes.

 Chip Brogden CHURCH WITHOUT WALLS 10104111

Enter the Kingdom
by Chip Brogden
We live in a day of easy-believism. According to the way today’s church operates, it is very easy to be saved. All we have to do is make a confession, or repeat a prayer, or make a decision, or respond to an altar call.  
 
In stark contrast to the conditions which exist in our day, Jesus frankly tells us that few will be saved, and few will find Life. When we read what Jesus Himself has to say we have to come to the conclusion that some within Organized Religion are guilty of trying to make the narrow gate and the narrow path into the wide gate and the wide path. We have become excellent salespeople and know how to use our powers of persuasion. We have become good at arguing our viewpoints. We are skilled at manipulating the emotions of other people. Those who know how can lead many people to the Lord – at least, according to the outward appearance.

It behooves us to go back to what the Lord Himself says, and we believe we have found at least seven occurrences in the Scriptures (beyond the two cited above) which seem to indicate that the way to Life is anything but easy. By the time we are concluded with our examination we will understand why Jesus says few are able to enter into the Kingdom. In the first place, the Kingdom is more profound than we have been taught. In the second place, the Way which leads us into the Kingdom is more narrow than we have been taught. By the grace of God let us ask the Lord enlighten us so that we will not go on deceiving or being deceived...

Hi Elaine,

The Bible records only two instances when Jesus wept.

One was after Lazarus died, when He wept at their unbelief.

The other was as He entered Jerusalem, when He wept at its failure to repent.

That was the "triumphal entry" where everyone else shouted Hosanna and was praising God.

It seems like an odd moment to be sad.

It seems like everyone "accepted" Him.

But in less than week, they would crucify Him.

Could a similar thing be happening now, before His return?

Join us as we begin studying the final week of Jesus' earthly ministry.

Family, Fellowship and Leadership
by Chip Brogden
This is how Religion gets a foothold – we become concerned with the outward elements, like meetings: how to meet, what to do when we meet, who’s in charge, blah blah blah blah blah.  
 
Would you agree that everyone has different ideas on those things?  It’s really no different than talking about what color should the carpet in the sanctuary be – red, or blue?  Who cares?  So when people focus on fellowship as a verb, that’s what you get.  And it isn’t profitable to your spiritual life to become consumed with those things.  We will never get agreement on them, and everyone tends to identify with the groups that most closely resemble what they think the “ideal” meeting or fellowship is supposed to look like.
 
Let me tell you how I view the Body of Christ, and then you’ll understand how I view fellowship, and then you’ll understand how I view leadership.  My thoughts can be summed up in three points...

Hi Elaine,

During tonight's online Bible study we'll discuss one of the great mysteries of life:

The mystery of unanswered prayer.

Or, answers to prayer that seem to take forever to arrive.

We'll look at some reasons why that may be and how we might respond to it.

Among other things.

Post  Admin on Wed 02 Oct 2019, 10:59 pm

Hi Elaine,

Some of the greatest prayers in the Bible are also the shortest:

"Lord, save me!"

"Lord I believe; help my unbelief!"

"Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!"

"God be merciful to me, a sinner!"

"My Lord and My God!"

These deep heart-cries activate something I like to call the Divine Mystery of Forgiveness.

Forgiveness is a powerful, disruptive spiritual force.

Disruptive, because it breaks the cycle of violence and arrests the returning of evil for evil.

God demonstrates it by forgiving us first, releasing salvation and healing.

Then, once we have experienced God's forgiveness, we can extend that forgiveness to others.

Someone has said that unforgiveness is like drinking poison and hoping the other person will die.

Remember: Those who deserve mercy the least are the ones who need it the most.

And somewhere in there we find you and me - all of us have gone astray, turned aside, fallen short, missed the mark.

Some more than others, true.

But our message is that failure isn't fatal; where sin abounds, grace abounds even more.

This impacts you on every level... it affects every relationship you have: past, present and future.

Learning to give and receive forgiveness is not just about the other person, but about healing yourself so you can move on.

Powerful principles that we'll explore in this week's online Bible study:

God's Saving Judgments:
A Fresh Look
by Chip Brogden
 "For the Lord will not cast off for ever:
but though He cause grief, yet will He have compassion according to the multitude of His mercies. For He does not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men."
(Lam. 3:31-33)
 
We may have difficulty reconciling the image of a brokenhearted God Who wants to restore the nations with One Who sends a flood to destroy the earth and rains down fire on cities like Sodom and Gomorrah. How do we explain the many passages of Scripture which refer to God’s judgment on the nations and His wrath towards sinners? Does the Bible contradict itself, or have we simply failed to interpret it correctly?

7 Kingdom Misconceptions
by Chip Brogden | Christ & The Kingdom of God, Featured
The interesting thing about secular history is it constantly repeats itself. Spiritual history is no different. The Christian Religion is following a parallel path to the Jewish Religion and will suffer the same fate.
 
Just like Israel of old, Institutional Christianity has given up its pursuit of the Irresistible Kingdom of God, and forsaken the Heavenly Order of things where Christ is Head; instead, they have set their sights on political power, wealth, and position.
 
Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. So far we Christians have done an excellent job of duplicating and perpetuating the same old Jewish misconceptions, even adding a few interesting twists to further compound the error...

Some funny things going on about health, wealth, and "prosperity" among religious folks.


I'll be honest.


If we're just going to use God to make our lives more comfortable and rich here on earth then I don't see the point - there are easier ways to make money, and they don't involve making preachers rich by giving them our "seed faith gift" and hoping we will get back a 100-fold return.


The only ones getting prosperous with that scheme are the ones teaching it, not the ones practicing it.


But it seems this prosperity teaching has been around for a long time because Jesus was teaching against it during His ministry on earth.


The Pharisees were "lovers of money" and they (of course) believed having money meant you were blessed by God for doing something right; which means, NOT having money meant you were being cursed for doing something sinful.


Jesus turned that nonsense upside down with several parables on true prosperity, responding to the illusion the religious had created that God would actually bless them while they ignored the needs of others.


Like, to spend a few million dollars on a big fat pipe organ for the church, like they did around here recently.


That sort of thing.


Nothing wrong with organ music if that's your thing, but seriously?


Let's get real about money, and how Jesus approached it.


It's not about how little or how much you have, but your relationship to it.


Do you have IT, or does IT have YOU?


Some people will sell themselves for a pot of stew or 30 pieces of silver; some people can't be bought at any price.


We'll explore that (and much more) in this week's online Bible study:

P.S. I'm not against money itself, or against you having money. You'll see that money is neither good nor evil; it is only a tool we can use for good or evil. But you can't use a tool for good if your heart is evil and self-centered. That's called "deceiving yourself." That's why we can't rationalize "God wants you to be a millionaire!" I don't even know if my own heart could handle it wisely; how could I possibly know anyone else's heart? Something to meditate on as we head into this study :-)

Hey Elaine,
 
Please pardon the interruption as I write you a personal email on a Sunday.
 
Even though I haven’t gone to church in over 20 years, and even though I have no legalistic obligation to Sunday as a day more special or holy than the other six, I work hard six days a week and I like to unplug myself on Sunday and try to think and do as little as possible.
 
I usually schedule an article to go out on Sunday because most people have the weekend off, and quite a few of them do see Sunday as a day of rest; or at least, they are more likely to think about spiritual things on Sunday morning compared to Monday morning, when they have to get up and get out into work or school.
 
But today, instead of an article, I thought I would write you an email instead - to talk about TWO THINGS.

FIRST, I just completed something that is long overdue, which is a getting my first big book – The Irresistible Kingdom – back in print on Amazon.
Image
It went out of print two or three years ago and I noticed one day, as I was browsing around Amazon, that some huckster was selling an out-of-print copy of my book for almost $1,000. I don’t know who is crazier – the person trying to sell it for $1,000 or the person who might actually pay that much for it.

I had wanted to do an updated edition of the book for the last two years, but when I saw that craziness happening on Amazon, I was motivated to get this book back into print and available to “whosoever will."

I made a few changes in the book, but not huge changes – and if you already read the previous edition of this book then you may not care about this new edition. At 413 pages, it’s a little bigger. It’s got an awesome new cover (which I love), and a new chapter (which I also love). 

I also added a second preface so I could address a few controversies that came up when the first edition was published in 2007. Has it really been 12 years? I reckon it has. Where does the time go, anyway? 

I’m still writing and working on new projects, but I’m so happy to make this one available again because the Kingdom of God, if taught at all, is often misunderstood. I hope that by making this book available in print again it will rekindle something that may be missing in how we see Jesus and the irresistible, unstoppable, unfailing love of God. 

The book is needed because I fear that too many people see Jesus as the One with all the love and compassion and see Our Father as full of wrath and judgment. We have religion to thank for that terrible image of an angry God. That portrayal of God is unfortunate, unnecessary, and inaccurate; for God is the One Who so loved the world that He delivered up His Son as the saving sacrifice for all; and His Son, Jesus, is the perfect representation of His Father’s heart.

In many ways I feel like I have only just begun to write, because I feel like I have only just begun to understand certain things well enough to write about them. 

SECOND THING: in view of all the above, let me very clear: I am following Jesus imperfectly, the same as anyone else. Just because I write and teach doesn’t mean I’ve got all the answers or that I have everything all figured out. I am figuring it out as I write and teach to the best of His ability in me.

You know, we live in an always-connected social media world where everyone seems to portray themselves as “with it” and always having their act together. We don’t post unflattering photos of ourselves or talk about our REAL struggles and difficulties too often.

In my case, being hurt by Christians – literally from the time I was 13 years old to right now, at the age of 48 - makes me reluctant to share anything with anyone. I don’t even ask for prayer (although I appreciate it when people say they pray for us). This is not about trying to make myself look better than I really am – it’s a defense mechanism, pure and simple. 

All of that to say: We all have faults. We all follow Jesus imperfectly. All of us struggle with something. We all experience doubt, fear, and frustration. If you feel that way sometimes then welcome to the club. It doesn’t mean you’re inferior or unspiritual; it just means you’re human.

The good news is “being human” cannot stop you from following Jesus – actually, being human is one of the basic requirements. Because He isn’t calling on perfect, super-spiritual people to learn of Him and be His disciples. He calls ordinary, flawed, wounded, weak people like you and me to follow Him however imperfectly we can with what light we have and what strength He gives. It’s up to the Shepherd to feed, watch over and protect the sheep so He can take them from where they are to where He wants them to be. The sheep can’t figure all this out on their own. That’s kind of the point.

Thank you for reading this far and for allowing me the privilege of speaking into your life once or twice a week. I will continue to do so for as long as God allows, and for as long as you care to read and listen.
 
I am your brother,
 
Chip Brogden

Hi Elaine!

How does that old hymn go?

"I once was lost, but now... I've forgotten what that was like!"

"Was blind, but now... I'm better than the rest still blind!"

No, of course that's not how it goes - but that's how some Christians THINK.

We sometimes forget that it is God's AMAZING GRACE (not our amazing faith or our amazing decision) that saved us.

Join us for tonight's Bible study as we consider what it means to be Lost from the Savior's perspective...

Hi Elaine!

Imagine a sinking ship...

Some passengers are rescued, while others are still trapped...

Rescue efforts are still underway...

And the passengers who are saved begin to think (1) they are superior to the ones still needing to be saved and (2) the ones not saved chose to be lost.

Isn't that stupid?

Who would think that way?

Well, a lot of Christians think that way when it comes to who is and who isn't saved.

That's why I am so thankful that JESUS CHRIST (literally, "Anointed Savior") is not relying on Christians to save the world.

What do I mean by that?

Simply that Jesus Himself is actively seeking and saving the lost (Lk. 19:10)!

Meaning, Jesus isn't sitting around, waiting to see if someone will believe in Him or not, waiting for you and me to grow up, get over ourselves, and share the Good News with someone today.

If you are saved at all it is because Jesus sought you out and saved you - in spite of yourself.

You didn't seek Him; He sought you!

You didn't find Him; He found you!

You didn't choose Him; He chose you!

You didn't "decide to accept Him;" He drew you to Himself by His Spirit and said, "You are accepted in the Beloved!"

It's not about what you did and what someone else hasn't done; it's about what He has done!

So what are we boasting about?


The rescue operation is ongoing, and He won't stop until He finds them all and saves them all.

Find that hard to believe?

It's because we don't know the Word, we don't know His heart, and we are too quick to give up.

With 99 sheep safely in the fold, we think one lost sheep isn't worth the bother.

But not Him.

Because we fail, His Love never fails.

And Jesus, the Lord of Love, gave us three parables to illustrate His unfailing love for the Lost - and to warn "the saved" not to think they are superior.

We'll discuss those three parables during this week's online Bible study...
