Tribes and Troubles Part 2

2 weeks ago we discussed the benefits of living in a tribe.  This week we go over the greatest danger of them.  One Very Real Danger Despite the great benefits derived from being part of a tribe, there can be some dangers, dangers that can tear what should be a unified people, apart.   The largest danger comes from ourselves and our approach to the differences we have with others.  Remember there are 3 things that come from 2 or more gathering together: View 1, View...

Tribes and Troubles Part 1

Being part of the Hebrew Roots movement, or at least people who have some familiarity with the story of the Bible, most of us have heard of tribes, especially the 12 tribes of Israel.

"John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." Believing means what? Few verses later... "John 3:20-21 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who DOES THE TRUTH comes to the LIGHT, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.” Those who hate the light do not come to the light. But...
