  1. I agree; "If it is God's will". However, according to Scripture (Heb. 10:25), isn't it God's will to be faithful to a local Bible-believing church? Look at what you are saying. If everyone used these excuses to justify why they can't be faithful to God's command then: as goes the economy, so goes the church. This hardly seems to be the attitude of the early Christians. (Think about the catacombs in Rome) Isn't Matt. 6:33 still in the Scriptures? Please don't misunderstand me, I realize that there can be some extenuating circumstances for a temporary period of time. Even some of
  2. It's usually about priorities and commitment. I have been saved for over 30 years. During that time I have been a member of three different Independent Baptist Churches. Sometimes I had to drive over thirty miles to go to church. Was always there with my family whenever the services or activities were scheduled. If it got to be too much of an expense or a problem with time attending faithfully, we would simply move closer to the church. If necessary, I would change jobs. After all, aren't we supposed to be pilgrims and strangers down here? It seems that too may people have higher priori
  3. Once Saved, Always Saved! If you do not believe that Jesus has saved your soul from Hell forever; can you really claim to be "saved" at all? Although there are many different denominations that claim to be "Christian"; there are basically only two kinds of belief about salvation among them. The more popular belief teaches that salvation is something that can be gained and lost many times in this life. It claims that a person is saved by grace initially, but that there is always the possibility of him doing something wrong at a later time that would cause him to lose his salv
  4. The Law Of Faith In Salvation Can the grace of salvation be received by "hope" in the promise of God, or must it be received by "faith"? Have you ever watched the evening sun set in the east? Have you ever heard of an apple falling up from the ground into a tree? Of course not! The reason for this is that because of the earth's rotation, the sun always sets in the west. Also, because of gravity, the direction of the fallen apple will always be downward. When God created the universe, He established certain principles that would help to keep things consistent and in order.
  5. Any Eligible Future Husbands? I have a very serious question. It seems that a lot of young people yoke up together for marriage in Christian colleges, but unfortunately, there are many young men and ladies who are not ready for a lifetime commitment at that stage of their life. Does the window of opportunity close for them? I realize that God should be trusted in this situation, but it can be very frustrating for those who are waiting for ?Mr. or Miss Right? when you are in a small town and trying to be faithful to the Lord, your Church, and not yoke up with unbelievers in the world. T
  6. Free Will and Final Choices! Is salvation of the soul a lifelong series of choices, or can one be saved instantly as a result of one single choice? If you were to die today, do you know absolutely for sure that your soul would go straight to Heaven? What if you die five years from today? Are you convinced that you will go there? Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could know for sure? For then, any problem or hardship that you might face down here would not be so unbearable: because you would know that when this physical life ends, you are going to a place where there is
  7. Please be careful what is meant by the "home chuch movement". While door knocking last week, my wife and I ran into someone who claimed that God was not working through the local churches any more. At first, she seemed to have a little more Bible knowledge than people we usually meet, but when she quoted II Cor. 6:17 for her reason for not attending ANY church, red flags went up. Then, this past Sunday, a lady from our church brought a tract that was on display at a Gospel music concert titled: Does God Love You?. This was published by Family Radio (not to be confused with American Family
