We pray. Christians pray to the triune G-d. This post is one in a series on Christian prayer, and how we learn to pray from the Lord’s Prayer. Today we come to the “petition” where we ask our Heavenly Father for stuff. We cannot help but be self-centered in wanting stuff, but as we learn […]

After a three-week delay, I am continuing my series on Christian prayer. Christians pray to G-d, and we learn how to pray from the Bible and from fellow Christians. Sometimes we even borrow from non-Christian sources. Our chief source is generally the Lord’s Prayer, because that is where Jesus taught His Disciples to pray. Here […]

We are reviewing orthodox Christian teachings on how to pray by examining the Lord’s Prayer. In this week’s lesson we consider what it means to pray for G-d’s Kingdom to come. G-d’s kingdom is everything. He made the universe and everything in it. He made us and we belong to Him. So, why do we […]

This is part two of my series on the teachings of orthodox Christians regarding prayer. We commonly teach about prayer by using the prayer that Jesus taught to His disciples. It is found in the Sermon on the Mount. From Matthew Chapter 6: Preview Open

Christians pray. The Bible teaches us to pray, and prayer is discussed in many passages in the Bible. As a continuation of my exploration of the boundaries of Christian orthodoxy, I want to take a look at Christian teachings on prayer. My intent is to find how far we go together in agreement as Christian […]

This is to summarize my series of posts on the Ten Commandments. The point of this exercise was to begin an exploration of the boundaries of orthodox Christianity. So far we have established that all Christians who consider themselves “orthodox” are in agreement about teachings on the Ten Commandments. That is a lot of agreement. […]

Here is a new exploration of the bounds of orthodoxy in Christianity. I have been progressing through the Ten Commandments, at the beginning of a program to delineate the boundaries of what can be called “orthodox” among Christians. So far we are mostly in agreement. This week we will look at another Commandment, this time […]

In three previous posts I wrote about the Ten Commandments. The first Commandments apply to the relationship we all have with G-d. The second table of the Commandments applies to the relationships we have with each other. This is why you see the Ten Commandments illustrated with three Commandments on one tablet and seven Commandments […]
