Hell is necessary.

Here’s something you won’t hear in most American churches today. If you want to listen to this entire message you can download it from this post.

Sola Scriptura (63)

But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand. – Ezekiel 33:6

A Spherical Gospel Tract

Last summer, my wife and I attended her class reunion. We piled into one of her classmate’s cars to do some sight seeing for the day. I was surprised to find some gospel tracts I was familiar with in their car. It turns out that this couple likes to go out witnessing. They’ve been on […]

An attempted post-birth abortion fails.

Unlike the child that survived an attempted “legal” abortion only to have her life snuffed out in a trash can by a cold-blooded abortion clinic staff member (see here), this latest story ends on a much better note. In the latest saga of mothers who murder their own children, meet 19 year-old Sarah Tatum, a […]

Quotes (489)

Many object to homeschooling or private Christian schools based on the fact that God has called us to be “salt” and “light” and to evangelize the world. Ironically, this is precisely why we chose homeschooling. The Great Commission states: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father […]

His grace is not shown at the expense of righteousness, nor do His mercies ignore the requirements of holiness. – A.W. Pink 1886 – 1952

Certainly not “Your Best Life Now” for those outside America.

While we entertain ourselves with stupid little videos to show the Hollywood culture how cool, hip, and relevant we are, this is going on everywhere else. HT: Saced by Grace

Sermon of the Week: “For God So Loved the World” by Brad Buser.

Your Sermon of the Week is For God So Loved the World by Brad Buser. Brad, a long time missionary to Papau New Guniea, challenges you to consider world missions as he smases most of the common excuses people employ to resist going into all the world, including “There are needs here,” “If God wants […]

Joel Osteen on “The Abundant Life”

Because, you know, you’re not living a full Christian life if you have bills to pay or you’re sick. More useless drivel from a man who has admitted he’s “not a preacher, but more of a life coach.” He needs to step down out of that pulpit and concentrate on his number one passion: selling […]

UN Chief Castigates Hamas

Israel consistently takes a beating in the arena of public opinion for causing civilian casualties among the Palestinians. However, a little bit of truth came out in the UN Security Council. John Holmes, the Humanitarian Affairs Chief of the UN said, “The reckless and cynical use of civilian installations by Hamas and indiscriminate firing of […]

Dr. Steven J. Lawson–“Only One Way” (Galatians 1:6-1:10)

 Continuing in the series entitled “Paul’s Most Explosive Letter,” Dr. Lawson preaches through the section aimed specifically at the Judaizers in the Galatian church. But this admonition is also aimed at those who would add one iota to the gospel–whether they be Catholics with their Magesterium, Jehovah’s Witnesses with their “Watchtower,” Mormons with their Book […]

When you can’t tell the difference between the “church” and the world.

Can someone please tell my why it is so necessary for “churches” in America to mimic the world, its ways, and its culture . . . the very world that’s antithetical to Christ and His Church? Case in point: For your consideration of the state of the “church” in America today, I’ve posted the following […]

Quotes (487)

People who do not know the Lord ask why in the world we waste our lives as missionaries. They forget that they too are expending their lives . . . and when the bubble has burst they will have nothing of eternal significance to show for the years they have wasted. – Nate Saint 1923 […]

Mormon blasphemy illustrated.

The following picture is found on page 126 of the 1972 LDS Family Home Evening Manual to describe to Mormon children “how Jesus was the only begotten Son of God.” Utter blasphemy! For more information check out: Mormon Blasphemy: God and Mary had “natural” relations to conceive Jesus Redefining the Virgin Birth: Mormonism’s Teaching Concerning […]

Sola Scriptura (62)

Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion, That I not be full and deny You and say, “Who is the LORD?” Or that I not be in want and steal, And profane the name of my God. – Proverbs 30:8-9

Truth vs. relevance.

Quotes (486)

If I see aright, the cross of popular evangelicalism is not the cross of the New Testament. It is, rather, a new bright ornament upon the bosom of a self-assured and carnal Christianity. The old cross slew men; the new cross entertains them. The old cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed […]

Chrislam?

What do you get when you mix Christianity and Islam and sprinkle it with a dash of Charismania? See an even more shocking issue in Nigeria: The Witch Children. HT: A Little Leaven

Quotes (485)

We distort and confuse the Gospel in people’s understanding when we try to present the Gospel using terminology which turns people’s attention to what they must do rather than outward to what God has done on their behalf. . . . “Accept Jesus into your heart.” “Give your heart to Jesus.” “Give your life to […]

Lessons from Coach.

The following is a heart-wrenching excerpt from Voddie Baucham’s book Family Driven Faith: Over the years Coach and I have kept in contact. Every once in a while I pick up the phone and catch up with Coach. Recently I discovered that he had fallen on hard times. He had finally retired and didn’t know […]

Welcome to “Christianity” in 2009.

*** UPDATE: THE VIDEO IS BACK UP AND CAN BE VIEWED AGAIN *** When the shepherds of the Church forgo the preaching of the Gospel and resort to appealing to the lost through emotion and entertainment, they are left breathless having to keep coming up with new material to attract and retain the goats they’ve […]

Quotes (484)

If the Church is the dispenser of truth to both the lost and the redeemed, then dissemination of truth must be at the top of the church’s agenda. – Gary Gilley

Movie review: “The Exodus Revelaed.”

This is another great film sure to increase your faith. This documentary explored the Exodus route taken by the Jews as they fled Egypt and it offers compelling archeological evidence to support the veracity of the Scriptures. The Exodus Revealed is a good film for the whole family. “The Search for the Red Sea Crossing. […]

Quotes (483)

Too many are apt to look at nothing but the surface of things in religion, and regard nice distinctions in theology as questions of “words and names,” which are of little real value. – J.C. Ryle 1816 – 1900

Sermon of the week: “Jesus’ Call to Silence” by Don Green.

Your sermon of the week is Jesus’ Call to Silence by Don Green. This is one of those very important sermons especially for those in apologetics who contend for the faith. Don Green really lays it down as he explains when enough is enough and when we should stop casting our pearls before swine. A […]

Baal worship, then and now.

The following excellent piece was written by Matt Barber and was found on WorldNetDaily: Modern-day liberals – or “progressives” as they more discreetly prefer – labor under an awkward misconception; namely, that there is anything remotely “progressive” about the fundamental canons of their blind, secular-humanist faith. In fact, today’s liberalism is largely a sanitized retread […]

Quotes (482)

Scripture is like a lion. Who ever heard of defending a lion? Just turn it loose; it will defend itself. – C.H. Spurgeon 1834 – 1892

Quotes (481)

When I first became a Christian, I thought all Christians were sold-out, fire-breathing, truth-telling, water-walking followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. I also believed that I could trust anything that was written by a Christian author and published by a Christian publisher. I soon discovered that I was wrong. – Voddie Baucham

Religion of Peace™ claims another victim

Via Domain For Truth: Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an […]
