OFFENSIVE BIBLE WORDS

An Indiana mega church pastor is annoyed by the word “saved.”
In a recent blog post he asked, “Does the Word ‘Saved’ Bother Anyone Else?” He also has a problem with the phrase “born again.” He refers to such terms as “insider terms.” (Christian Post, 9.01)
Friend, this is nonsense.
After all, “saved” and “born again” are terms used in the Bible. Jesus Himself said, “Ye must be born again.” (John 3:7). And Romans 10:13 says, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
Saved is a very common word to describe what happens when a person is rescued from sin by the Lord Jesus Christ. Where will all this nonsense end? In the great apostasy?

This year at Levy Baptist we have been studying the Life of Christ. We began in January with his pre-existence and have moved through his life, a Harmony of the Gospels study. One of the advantages of studying Jesus’ life this way, is that you get all of Him in the Scriptures. You don’t allow yourself to only focus on one aspect of his life. You discover the passages where Jesus was offensive. He was straight forward. Jesus calls us to holiness and He does so in no uncertain terms! Christ calls us to follow Him even when we don’t understand.
This article, by Mike Goeke, I believe you’ll find interesting. I wanted to share it with you today because it is a testimony to the offensiveness of Christ’s call to holiness.
