For those who follow the evolution vs. creation debate you know about one of Darwin’s most militant disciples, Richard Dawkins. Author of the book, The God Delusion, he spares few words in expressing his bitter hatred of even the remotest thought that there might be a creator or intelligent designer of the universe. The question is, does Dawkins really exist […]
Like placing a trampoline next to a spiked fence, sometimes you just have to admit when a bad idea is a bad idea (especially when it’s very harmful to children). The Christian Post recently reported on a message from Scott T. Brown of the National Center for Family-Integrated Churches (NCFIC.org) in which he bravely went […]
The Gospel tells us that Christ died not for good people, who never did anything very bad, but for lost and godless sinners, who never did anything good. – A.W. Pink 1886 – 1952
Awhile back, we requested prayer for Pastor Philemon who is a national pastor working in the country of Liberia. He works through AFBM (African Fundamental Baptist Missions) and VCP (Village Church Planters). The pastor who heads up VCP is Sam Quapourlee. A few months back we requested prayer for his son, Vanni, who was involved […]
Similar to the impact of Tim Conway’s message on Hell (found on this post), your sermon of the week is another sobering one. Hell by Pastor Don Kistler is one of those sermons that everyone should hear if they take God and His wrath seriously–but prepare to be very uncomfortable.
The following is a very disturbing story out of Virginia. A story that shows just how depraved the human heart truly is. And, how some politicians don’t care, just so long as they get re-elected. And, if this story gets enough national attention, it may just give us a glimpse into the mindset of many. […]
The world in which we live today is indeed a brave new world. One in which the majority of the masses have been lulled into sleep by the many “narcotics” lavished upon them in the form of endless entertainment, constant distraction, material excess and trivial pursuits. Because of this the people, including sadly the majority of Christians, are […]
Anyone who has spent any time doing street evangelism knows how discouraging it can be at times. A book I’m reading by Ken Ham and Brit Beemer entitled Already Gone: Why Your Kids Will Quit Church And What You Can Do To Stop It helps us to better understand just why evangelism in America is […]
It is not the job of the youth pastor to evangelize my child—that’s my job. It is not the youth pastor’s job to equip (disciple) my child—it’s mine. And it is not the youth pastor’s job to send my child out to engage the world; you guessed it—that’s my job too. – Voddie Baucham
Over ten years ago, persecuted Christians in Russia sent an urgent plea to the churches of America to stop sending their demonic rock music under the ruse that it is supposedly Christian. It addition to this plea, they also issued a sharp rebuke to the blindness and worldliness of the countless ministers and ministries that promote this […]
I found the following at Berean Wife. Thief I: One of the greatest time-wasting sins consists of idleness or sloth. Thief II: The next thief or time-waster is excess of sleep. Thief III: The next thief or time-waster is an inordinate adorning of the body. Thief IV: Another time-wasting thief is unnecessary pomp and curiosity […]
“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in need.” Philippians 4:11-12 Paul […]
As we enjoy the comforts of home, family, and the warmness of this holiday season, take a moment and watch this. Warning, some scenes may be too graphic for the fainthearted. HT- Truth Matters
In the creation, man was made in God’s image; in the incarnation God was made in man’s image. . . . He took our flesh that He might take our sins, and so appease God’s wrath. . . . Christ’s taking our flesh was one of the lowest steps of His humiliation. For Christ to […]
By: David Jones Just over one hundred years ago, the renowned pastor and statesman Charles H. Spurgeon spoke these words to the then-largest congregation in all Christendom: I believe that it is anti-Christian and unholy for any Christian to live with the object of accumulating wealth. You will say, “Are we not to strive all […]
I recently heard Don Kistler make the statement that “sin is the reason for the season” and he is absolutely right. Christ coming to earth as a human wasn’t for . . . Your self-esteem . . . Your personal finances . . . Your financial success . . . Your gift exchange party . […]
We always hear the story of Mary and Joseph and how they traveled to Bethlehem. And of course we see the Nativity scenes with the manger and Mary and Joseph and the wise men. True or False—the “wise men” were there at the manger when Jesus was born. False. But we just assume they were […]
Though all the peoples walk each in the name of his god, as for us, we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever. – Micah 4:5
by John Lanagan Mama and Papa, We are in America at last. The Lord has sent us into the strangest belief system. The men and women here seem impervious to the Gospel, but the Lord has given us great love for them. This religion teaches that virtually anything can be defined as a god. During […]
Here is a very telling look at the ungodly influence of men like Roberts and their prosperity gospel, by John MacArthur. Oral Roberts died this week and the obituaries have been abuzz with analyses of his life and legacy. The USA Today headline summed up his contributions this way: “Oral Roberts brought health-and-wealth Gospel mainstream.” […]
This comes from Jon Cardwell’s Justification by Grace… “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men […]
Your sermon of the week is Christ the Lord by Alistair Begg. This message is from his series The Gospel According to Luke and is a perfect sermon for Christmas. Enjoy.
I found this short and interesting video debate between a Roman Catholic (who includes Evangelicals, Catholics, and Mormons under the umbrella of “Christian”) and an Atheist on the subject of Christmas. The Roman Catholic is a Foxnews anchor, and the Atheist is from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Yes, the same Freedom From Religion Foundation […]
If you notice, at the end of the title there is a period–not a question mark. It is not great secret that the prosperity “gospel” is heresy. But, how do we explain just how many levels of heresy are involved in the TBN crowd’s twisting and perverting of God’s word for their own financial gain? […]
Similar to the previous post Thanksgiving Perspectives, I wanted to take the opportunity to recommend that you keep the Christmas holiday in perspective. I offer the following two things I believe will help you to do this: Download and listen to this sobering message by Bill Wilson and view the video on this post.
This was originally posted by Mike Ratliff at Possessing the Treasure; it is worth sharing with others…. Easy Preaching for Itchy Ears December 20, 2009 — Mike Ratliff In light of last night’s post, Stand Firm as the Day of the Lord Approacheth, I would like to post an article by our brother John P. […]
There’s a new purveyor of false doctrine in town, and they’re using the same argument often used by Atheists to deny God’s justice and punishment of the wicked. The New Covenant Group argues against Hell using a famous but woefully ignorant line of argumentation commonly employed by those who deny God’s existence. Before I address […]
The deeper you dig into the mire of Catholicism the more gems you discover. Here is one I would like to share with you about how all the “layman” Catholic apologists of YouTube fame, the Web and elsewhere should be “bound in the fetters of excommunication” as they are violating one of their papal decrees.
