This state of Christian doctrine and discipline has been prepared in the fear of God with a deep burden for the proper application of the unchanging principles of the Word of God.
We live in a society of extremes. Although there are many lights, people still live in “darkness”. There are frenzied shoppers in financial bondage, while others do not observe Christmas, insisting that it is wrong because of all the ado. Still others are out buying gifts because “they have to”.
Do you know where your life is heading? (No, we don't mean whether you are facing north or west). Life is a one-way street toward eternity, and you will need a Road Map to assist you on the highway. Do you know where to find up-to-date guidance?
There is a time and place for enjoying hunting, as well as other legitimate pass times. But in every season, God's people are to love Him with their whole heart, soul, strength and mind. May it be our passion to share the story of redemption with others!
We have only one hope of salvation. That is to crucify our carnal mind, receive the “mind of Christ" and be born of the Spirit. The Bible teaches us that sin is overcome, not by determination, but by giving up—by surrendering our all in faith to Christ, and being born of the Spirit.
Even the most sincere "walk down the aisle" or the most passionate "sinner's prayer" is no substitute for Jesus' words, "take up your cross daily and follow me." Christianity is a life—not a one-time decision.
A thoughtful look at the main points of Calvinistic doctrine, a careful correction of lopsided emphases according to the Scriptures, and a call to follow the One who said, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed." John 8:31
Some truths, kindly pointed out and explained, to the person comfortable in the thought that sincerity is what counts. Salvation is NOT dependent upon sincerity, and it is a world of difference--in fact, an eternity of difference!--what a person believes about the Lord Jesus Christ.
