I have not had the time to write in the last week, but as usual have thoughts running through my head and subjects I wish to explore… Hopefully, a few will pop out soon. With only two weeks left until summer break, I am ready for a lighter schedule that should allow more time to share things I am pondering.
In the past week, though, I have read or seen a couple things I want to share. Some with comment, some without…
First up are two dynamite, well researched graduate level theological papers by Hope Huerta that expose some flaws in Covenantal and Dispensational presuppositions. If you are not familiar with a solid research paper, I recommend you get a pot of coffee (it will take more than a cup) and wade through one or both of the following. These are well written responses to centuries of Christian dogma.
Because her website it titled Two House Chronicles, I would Hope 😉 that she writes a similar scholarly expose revealing the general ignorance in Christendom of the roles of the House of Judah and the House of Israel in the fulfilling of prophecy. If she gets really brave, she might even tackle the respective ignorance in Judaism, though parts of both Christendom and Judaism are awakening to the reality of “two house theology.”
Another article I read this week that is well done, though not quite so in depth, is titled,
by Frank Houtz. While I have previously written about the word ‘heresy’ and how the word is often misused and misapplied within Christendom, Frank takes this to a much deeper level and demonstrates error within our own house. Bravo! His article is well written and researched, though an easier read than the two above linked articles. Recommended!
119 Ministries just released a good video that I watched yesterday morning. The content and points shared are excellent and mirror very closely what we do in several local home fellowships. If you are considering starting a home fellowship or currently participate in one, I strongly recommend this video. The one area that I was a little disappointment in was the limited info they gave on including children. Some Messianic/Hebrew roots home groups have gotten the poor reputation of not being family/kid friendly. We try to be the opposite and be very family/child friendly and as such have many, many young people in our fellowships.
So, there is plenty of mental bubble gum to chew in the next couple days… 😉
Blessings and shavua tov!
