Comparisons

by Joshua Arnold

Satan wishes to keep the children of God in a sad, and perplexed state, because he hates Christians, and cannot devour their faith, nor pluck them out of the hand of God.

As long as Satan has a child of God confused as to whether they are true believers or just deceiving themselves, he will have them in a constant state of misery, and put off of many of their Christian duties. Read the rest of this entry

Belief and faith

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Belief and faith

by Lester Peoples

True Belief in God

Belief and Faith

Though the two seem much the same; really they are not.

Some instances they are as different as coldness is to hot.

The bible speaks of both to show what is to be expected

but to always try to remember why, one is not neglected.

Something that you think you know until it’s put to test

must have a share of faith involved, not like all the rest.

To reason why before you try something, takes a bit of faith

but holding out on what you know, may just cause your fate. Read the rest of this entry

Be careful who you follow

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Be careful who you follow

by Joshua Agan

Paul said “Follow me as I follow Christ.” (1 Corinthians 11:1)

Take a hard look at the men you follow and compare their walk to the walk of Christ (1 John 2:3-6).

Take a hard look at the men you follow and compare their fruit against those of the flesh and those of the Spirit, to see what is being manifest (Galatians 5:16-25; Matthew 7:15-23). You cannot manifest both—these two are opposed to one another. Read the rest of this entry

Living in a sinful world

Living in a sinful world

by Levi Smith

Listed below are some things that I believe men need to do while living in this aggressively sinful world….

• Make the Bible a priority.
The truth makes and keeps us free. Every day we don’t spend in the Word is a day that #Satangainsground. Love Scripture. Make it a necessary, non-negotiable part of your day. Read the rest of this entry

Nothing happens by chance

Nothing happens by chance

by Joshua Arnold

The other night, the night before I left for Florida, Andy, the owner of TractPlanet, sent me some gas money, because he was generous enough to pay for my trip down to his place, as we figure out if me working for him here will be a good fit.

I wanted to get my gas tank filled the night before, so I wouldn’t have to worry about it the next morning, and so I went to get gas. I got to the station, and just went I started pumping the gas, a lady came up to me and asked me if I could give her a ride to a grocery store nearby. I hesitated for a bit, because it appeared that she may have some sort of drug or alcohol issue, and I don’t need to risk getting pulled over and then get in trouble for possession of a substance I never saw in my life, simply because someone in my vehicle possessed it.

Pray for Muslims

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Pray for Muslims

MISSION FOCUS 1105

PRAY FOR MUSLIMS DURING THIS TIME OF THEIR PILGRIMAGE TO MECCA.

All Muslims who can afford it or are physically able will go on Hajj (Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca Saudi Arabia) at least once in their lifetime.
This year the Hajj is taking place between August the 9-14. It is considered the largest “human world’s gathering” and it is estimated that over 2.4 million pilgrims will be attending Hajj this year. During the Hajj the Muslims will walk and pray around the Kaaba seven times. The Kaaba is a large black, box shaped building at the center of the most important mosque in Islam, named Masjid Al-Haram (Holy Mosque). . Muslims believe the Kaaba was originally built by Abraham and Ishmael & was confirmed holy by Muhammad. An important part of Hajj is when the pilgrims go to Mount Arafat located in the village of Mina (about 3 miles from Mecca). The Mount is marked by a white pillar which is said to be where their “Prophet Mohammed” was believed to have delivered his last sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling on Muslims to unite. Close by this location stands three pillars representing the devil where the ritual of stoning the devil takes place by each pilgrim. Pray they will come to know that all rituals of the Hajj are pointless and seek to find the truth in GOD’s WORD. Read the rest of this entry

Gun control

Gun control

by Zach Whitsel

There have been two mass shootings in the last 24 hours leaving a total of 29 dead and 51 injured last I read. The shooter in Ohio was taken out within 60 seconds of starting his killing spree, and he had a lot of ammo left and a large crowd at his disposal. There’s no telling how bad that one could have been had it not been for competent law enforcement. Nancy Pelosi didn’t even let a day go by before using the incidents as a platform for gun control. I don’t know where you stand in this debate but I want to make some points that will help you sift through the info over the coming weeks as this is bound to heat up. Read the rest of this entry

Calvinism is not the Gospel

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Calvinism is not the Gospel

by Joshua Arnold

Calvinism is not the Gospel. The Gospel is the proclamation of the person and works of Jesus Christ.

I wholeheartedly affirm all 5 points of Calvinism, but as Calvinistic in my view as I am, and as joyful as I am in my brothers and sisters who affirm and zealously proclaim the true doctrines of the Bible that we have called ‘Calvinism’ mainly for the sake of distinguishing our view from others in a single word instead of spending 20 minutes to explain each view we have as professing Christians, the idea that a person is not saved if they don’t affirm the Calvinistic doctrines, is an error itself.

Repentance

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Repentance

by Joshua Agan

A “repentance” which continues to do the same deeds is no repentance at all.

“Thus saith the Lord;
Stand in the court of the Lord’s house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah, which come to worship in the Lord’s house, all the words that I command thee to speak unto them;
diminish not a word:
IF so be they will hearken, AND TURN every man FROM HIS EVIL WAY, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings.

Addiction

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Addiction

by Emily Thomes

Before 2014, I had a lot of “addictions.” My biggest issue wasn’t my promiscuity or the drugs, though; it was my heart. I was slave to my sin and dead in my trespasses; to say that I was addicted to the things that the Lord hates and warns against in His word is an understatement. By His grace, He delivered me from the wrath I deserved for my sin. In doing so, He led me out of practicing homosexuality, drug abuse, uncontrollable anger, and more. I’m not without sin today by any means, but He has grown me to be like His Son and is continuing to do so more each day. Even had I gotten sober and straightened out my life some, without Jesus, I would still not truly be “clean”. More than my bad behavior, I needed a clean heart. Only being born again can save us. Turn not just to sober living but to Jesus as Lord and be made clean from the inside out. #cleanchallenge

Formula faith

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Formula faith

by Zach Whitsel

I read this evening where Joshua Harris, author of the famous conservative Christian book from the 1990’s about how he kissed dating goodbye, was ending his marriage of twenty years and leaving his faith in Christ as well. I had so many mixed emotions when I read his words. I grew up in the conservative side of Christianity where his old book was embraced. I remember his book well. I left that church movement several years ago because it became abundantly clear to me that “formula” faith was a sham that was inevitably robbing people of their faith. Read the rest of this entry

Wrong Salvation Instructions

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT : PLEASE READ

Wrong Salvation Instructions

This is a short excerpt from Are You a Rotten Fish? that describes a number of the incorrect Gospel RESPONSES that have produced untold false converts.

Accept Jesus

Were you told to “accept” Jesus? Here’s the glitch with that well worn phrase: Jesus does not need our acceptance, we need His (Romans 15:7). The great news is, He will accept us—if we obey His command to repent and trust Him. Read the rest of this entry

Suicide

Suicide

by Moira Greyland Peat

Suicide Scolding

My dear friends, I assure you that the scolding is primarily for me, lest you think this is to be a lecture.

Everyone who has gone through massive and repeated pain and loss has looked at their own life and wondered what it is all for, and if there is any value in continuing when pain seems so inevitable and endless.

Some of us have considered suicide as a way out of pain. Where it is easy to condemn suicide, let us not so easily condemn those of us who are metaphorically seeking to chew our own legs off to escape a trap. Read the rest of this entry

Wicked men

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Wicked men

by Levi Smith

I sat in my 4th grade Sunday School class in Texas, unaware that wicked men were voting my dad out as Pastor of the church.

My mom poked her head into my Sunday School class and motioned for me to come out into the hallway. She gathered the other siblings, we met my dad and we left that church for the last time.

We went to the parsonage. It was there that my parents told us that our time in Graham, Texas was over. We had only been there for just under a year. We were just getting settled. I had finally found the group of friends I could play with on the playground. And now, because of unbiblical men, we had to uproot and move again. Read the rest of this entry

Divorce

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Divorce

by Joshua Agan

Pastor Chet Cooper shared some helpful words that many need to hear:

So many have experienced the tragedy of divorce who never thought it would happen to their marriage. As a Pastor, I have counseled many who could have avoided it if both parties had been committed but when only one was it always failed. Much misinformation abounds within the body of Christ concerning the subject of divorce. One aspect is labeling divorce as sin. God cannot sin and He is divorced! Read the rest of this entry

Judas

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Judas

by Joshua Arnold

Judas mourned more for his sin than most professing Christians do today. Not only did he mourn, but he paid restitution by giving back the 30 pieces of silver. He was deeply convicted of his sin, and did not make any excuses for it like most professing Christians do today. He didn’t say “well, God knows my heart”. He made no excuse for his sin whatsoever. Yet, Judas will be cast into the Lake of Fire. Read the rest of this entry

Is polyamory next?

Here is something I read on Facebook.

Is polyamory next?

by Ken Ham

“Princeton University professor Robert P. George warned in ‘Is Polyamory Next?’ for The American Interest in 2015 that homosexual ‘marriage’ opens the door to marriage that includes more than two persons.”

“‘If gender doesn’t matter for marriage, they ask, why should number matter?’ he asked. ‘If love makes a family,’ as the slogan went when the cause being advanced was gay marriage, then why should their family be treated as second class? Why should their marriage be denied legal recognition and the dignity and social standing that come with it?” Read the rest of this entry

How to support LGBTQ kids

Here is something I read on Facebook.

How to support LGBTQ kids

by Ken Ham

In California, “…teacher[s] would be ordered to undergo training on how to support kids who identify as LGBTQ.”

The best way to support them is to teach them the truth about where they came from—that God created the universe and all life including the first two people, created male and female (Genesis 1:27). And God created the first marriage: one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24). Read the rest of this entry
