Didache – Teaching of the Twelve Apostles


The Stream at Virudhunagar, India

“For this ye know,
that no whoremonger,
nor unclean person,
nor covetous man,
who is an idolater,
hath any inheritance
in the kingdom of Christ
and of God
.

Eph 5:5

I am no preacher, but, am a sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, God gave me the following information from the message I was listening from http://cfcindia.com/. It is interesting.

Didache (Teaching of the Twelve Apostles)

While listening to  Mr. Zac Poonan’s audio message (Covetousness) this Didache was mentioned by him.

Didache is the “Teaching of the Twelve Apostles”, which will help you to identify the wolves from sheep in the present time.

“Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary the devil,
as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: ” – 1Pe-5:8

If you want to know more about the originating and meaning of Didache, kindly, firstly visit the site – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Didache. You may find lot of  information on Didache from Internet search. God Almighty blesses you, read it with prayers to identify /discern the true disciples of Jesus Christ  and His children / preachers in His vineyard in the present time.

Didache, which is mentioned here comprises of sixteen chapters.

Chapter One

There are two ways: one of life and one of death; and the difference between the two ways is great.

The way of life is this: first, you should love God, who made you; secondly, love your neighbor as yourself; and whatever things you do not desire to be done to you, do not do them to someone else.

Now the words of this teaching are this:
Bless those who curse you and pray for your enemies, and fast for those who are persecuting you. For what credit is it if you love those who love you? Do not the Gentiles do the same thing? But love those hating you, and you will not have an enemy.

Keep yourself from fleshly and bodily cravings. If anyone hits you on the right cheek, turn the other one to him also. And you will be acting maturely. If someone should force you to go one mile, go with him two. If someone takes your coat, give him your shirt also. If anyone should take from you what is yours, do not demand that he give it back, for you cannot.

Give to everyone asking you and do not refuse, for the Father desires to give to everyone from His own gifts. Blessed is the one who gives according to the commandment, for he is innocent. But the one who receives without need shall account for his receiving.

Furthermore, being held, he shall be examined concerning what he has done, and he shall not be released until he has given back the last cent. It has been said concerning this, “Let your money sweat in your hands until you know whom you should give it to.”
