The Tie That Binds


The fundamental underlying premise of The Hijacked Elephant is that the entire Biblical record is one story written to and about the same people. [See first question, Q&A: The Hijacked Elephant menu]. In it, the analogy is that Christ is the "shoelace that binds both the Old and the New Testaments together." While this may not be news for some, Yehovah elohiym, the LORD God of the Old Testament is the same person as Jesus Christ of the New Testament in the first century. It's no accident that the name Jesus means Yehovah is salvation.

Riding Rogue Ponies Into The Apocalypse, The Curious Elephant

At its most fundamental level, the story contained in the Biblical record is quite simple to understand as the Flow Chart at the back of the book shows. [Also see the chart at the bottom of the Feature article, A Tale Of Two Covenants]. It is totally and completely related to the two covenants, the one made with Abraham and his Seed, Christ and the law covenant made with the children of Israel and the relationship between them both through Christ.

Name Those Tenets

Christianity is based on a solid foundation of six basic tenets. They are the progression of a Christian’s life in God’s plan for us. Can you name all six of them, in order? It is unlikely that you can. But as Christians, we should know them as well as we know the alphabet. And the reason for our ignorance is that these fundamental tenets have been replaced by false doctrines brought in by false prophets who have “crept in unawares” as the apostle Jude pointed out. In their place, Churchianity has replaced them with corrupted versions, i.e., “sacraments,” of their own devising. So let’s make up for lost time, and establish the word of God in our understanding of Christianity as delivered to us in the first century by Christ and the apostles that we may be blessed.
