How Are Christian Good Works the Light of the World?

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in the heavens. (Matthew 5:14, 16)

Being the light of the world is pre-eminently applied to Jesus in the Scriptures (Matt. 4:16; Luke 2:32; John 1:4; John 8:12; Isa. 49:6), because he is, in the moral world, what the sun is in the natural world. The apostles, Christian ministers, and all Christians are lights of the world, because they, by their instructions and example, show what God requires, what is the condition of man, what is the way of duty, peace, and happiness the way that leads to heaven. As the city on the hill, Christians must be seen; they ought to be holy, harmless, and undefiled.

What Does the Bible Say About God As a Spirit?

God is A spirit – This is the second reason why men should worship him in spirit and in truth. By this is meant that God is without a body but He has spirit body; yet he is not material or composed of parts; that he is invisible, in every place, pure and holy. This is one of the first truths of religion, and one of the sublimest ever presented to the mind of man. Almost all nations have had some idea of God as gross or material, but the Bible declares that he is a pure spirit. As he is such a spirit, he dwells not in temples made with hands Act_7:48, neither is worshipped with men’s hands as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things, Act_17:25. A pure, a holy, a spiritual worship, therefore, is such as he seeks – the offering of the soul rather than the formal offering of the body – the homage of the heart rather than that of the lips.

CHRISTIANS Why Should We Not Correct a Ridiculer?

You are urged to faithfulness and prudence, always recognize that there are some who will never listen. It can be very unwise to try and teach the beneficial truths of God’s Word to someone who has utter contempt for you and the truth you are trying to share, for he will only ridicule your efforts.

The Bible’s View: How Can Blasphemy Be Forgiven?

[The Unforgivable Sin!] The blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, Matt. 12:32; Mark 3:28, consisted in attributing to the power of Satan, those unquestionable miracles which Jesus performed by “the finger of God,” and the power of the Holy Spirit. It is plainly such a state of wilful, determined opposition to God and the Holy Spirit, that no efforts will avail to lead to repentance.

Can Blasphemy REALLY NOT Be Forgiven?
