  1. STUDENTS PROTEST LIBERTY UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT’S STATEMENT THAT HE WILL RAISE HIS GRANDDAUGHTER AS A GIRL - Liberty University has long been on a slippery slide of compromise that began under founder Jerry Falwell’s leadership. His compromise started with small steps, as it always does, but the Word of God warns that “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” (1 Co. 5:6; Gal. 5:9). The latest evidence of the school’s spiritual decline came last week with the protest by some 30 students of the president’s announcement that he and his wife are raising their granddaughter “as a girl.” Speaking to a..

  2. Consider some of the contrasts between the strange woman described in Proverbs 7:7-23 and the modest woman: They are different in where they go . The strange woman is not afraid of going out “in the black and dark night” (Pr. 7:9). Her “feet abide not in her house; now is she without, now in the streets” (Pr. 7:11-12). The modest woman, on the other hand, is cautious about where she goes and when she goes and with whom she goes; she avoids going to places where moral temptations lurk; she avoids being alone with men other than her husband and brothers; she avoids situations that could place her in the way of moral harm. The modern pop culture would applaud the strange woman as “liberated,” but the liberty to do evil is actually enslavement. They are different in their attire (Pr. 7:10). The immoral woman has “the attire of an harlot”--skimpy, tight, suggestive--to draw attention to herself sexually and to lure men to her on that basis . The modest woman, on the other hand, is clothed in such a way so as NOT to draw men’s attention to her in a sexual manner.. Read More View the full article
  3. BIBLE GOING TO THE MOON ON ISRAEL’S SPACECRAFT (Friday Church News Notes, March 15, 2019, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - A digital copy of the Bible is on the way to the moon on Israel’s first lunar landing spacecraft. Called Beresheet (Genesis), the craft was launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida on February 21 and is scheduled to land on the moon on April 11. The lander was built by SpaceIL, a private Israeli company, and was launched by SpaceX, a private American company. On March 6, the spacecraft took a “selfie” with the round earth in the background. In the foreground is a sign that says, “Small country, big dreams.” (Yes, Flat Earthers, Beresheet is yet another myth. SpaceIL.. Read More View the full article
  4. Darlene Zschech (pronounced check ) is a prominent voice in the Contemporary Worship movement. For 25 years she was “worship pastor” at Hills Christian Life Centre, Sydney, Australia, and has published many popular worship albums under the Hillsong Music label.

  5. We are not opposed to drums or any other musical instrument; we are opposed to the use of drums in a wrong way. A drum or an electric guitar or an electronic keyboard is not evil or wrong in itself. First of all, we are opposed to the use of drums to produce rhythms that are sensual or sexual in nature. The Bible says that this world is fallen and is under the dominion of sinful men and demons, and God’s people are to separate from the evil things of this world. The Bible makes a sharp distinction between the holy and the profane (Ezek. 22:26), between God and.. Read More View the full article
  6. We find a number of tests of a pastor’s calling in Scripture. These can help a man determine if God is calling him to be a pastor, and these can help churches to examine men before ordination. 1. The test of desire (1 Timothy 3:1) 1 Timothy 3:1 (“If a man desire the office”).. Read More View the full article
  7. SOUTH AFRICAN PENTECOSTAL PASTOR FAKES A RESURRECTION (Friday Church News Notes, March 8, 2019, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - A Pentecostal pastor in South Africa has been caught faking a resurrection (“South Africa funeral firm to sue pastor, for ‘resurrection stunt,’” BBC News , Feb. 26, 2019). A video of Pastor Alph Lukau raising a man from the dead “went viral,” but it turns out, not surprisingly, to be a hoax. In the video, the pastor, whose church is near Johannesburg, is standing beside a man lying in a coffin, pretending to be dead. To add.. Read More View the full article
  8. I recently returned from my seventh trip to Israel, and each one has been more profitable. The study of Israel is a major key in understanding the Bible, which is not surprising since Israel is the Land of the Book. The Bible is a historical book, the events of which occurred in the land of Israel and neighboring nations. The better the student knows the geography and history and..

  9. POPE AND GRAND IMAM JOIN HANDS FOR WORLD PEACE (Friday Church News Notes, March 1, 2019, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - On February 4, Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, Ahmed el-Tayeb signed the DOCUMENT ON HUMAN FRATERNITY FOR WORLD PEACE in Abu Dhabi. It is based on the doctrine of the universal Fatherhood of God. The pope said the document “is born of faith in God who is the Father of all and the Father of peace” (“Pope: Peace document born of God,” Vatican News, Feb. 5, 2019). The document “invites all persons who have faith in God and faith in human fraternity to unite and work together so that it may serve as a.. Read More View the full article
  10. The following is excerpted from the new book The Hyles Effect , which is available as a free eBook from the Way of Life web site -- www.wayoflife.org. It is also available in print. The fruit of the Hyles model and methodology has often consisted of moral and spiritual shipwreck. Multitudes of former members of Hyles-type churches, having witnessed so much error and hypocrisy, have abandoned church altogether. Or they have explored the contemporary emerging philosophy, having allegedly found more spiritual reality in those circles than they witnessed in “fundamentalism.” Being the products of shallow evangelism, many of these have never been biblically converted. They have prayed a sinner’s prayer but haven’t been born again. Having never had a real and dynamic relationship with Christ, they are man-followers, and when the man fails, they are offended and quit, sometimes blaming Christ and the church for something that is man’s fault alone. Even if they were truly saved, they were not properly discipled and grounded in the Scriptures and in solid doctrinal truth. All too typically.. Read More View the full article
  11. The following is one chapter of The Preacher and His Preaching by Alfred Gibbs. His biography is as follows: “Alfred P. Gibbs (1890-1967) was a man born to preach. He was raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. He was led to a saving knowledge of Christ by his twin brother, Edwin. During World War I, Gibbs served as military chaplain, preaching to soldiers in training camps. In 1919 he set off for Moody Bible School in Chicago, Illinois. There he soon became involved in Rescue Mission work. He carried on an itinerant Bible teaching and writing ministry, chiefly in the United States and Canada. Gibbs published his first book, The Marvelous City of Mansoul in 1926. In all he wrote fourteen books and booklets. All his books have intensity like the man who wrote them. He was full of his subject. He also composed poetry and wrote Christian hymns. Gibbs never married, considering himself.. Read More View the full article
  12. HEAD OF CHURCH OF ENGLAND SAYS HE SPEAKS IN TONGUES EVERY DAY (Friday Church News Notes, February 22, 2019, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, says that he speaks in “tongues” every day. In a recent interview with the Christian radio station Premier, he said, “In my own prayer life, and as part of my daily discipline, I pray in tongues every day--not as an occasional thing, but as part of daily prayer. It’s not something to make a great song and dance about. Given it’s usually extremely early in the morning it’s not usually an immensely ecstatic moment” ( BBC News , Jan. 21, 2019). The “archbishop” is also open to receiving words of knowledge and prophecies. He claims that he was “filled with the Holy Spirit” and began speaking in tongues at age 19. That was at Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB), one of the largest and most prestigious Church of England parishes. It is located at the heart of Knightsbridge, London’s most exclusive shopping district, just down the street from Harrods department store. It was at Holy Trinity that the “laughing revival” was..

  13. A few of the more radical skeptics deny that Jesus was an historical person. This is called “the Jesus myth.” In 2012, for example, Timothy Freke published The Jesus Mysteries: Was the ‘Original Jesus’ a Pagan God? Following is a refutation of the myth of the Jesus myth: 1. The historicity of Jesus was not disputed until recent times. Had there been any question whatsoever about the actual existence of Jesus, the opponents of Christianity in the early centuries would have used this to refute Christianity’s legitimacy, but this was never done. The Encyclopedia Britannica says: “These independent accounts.. Read More View the full article
  14. Robert Lewis Stevenson (1850-1894) was author of Treasure Island , Kidnapped , Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and A Child’s Garden of Verses . He ranks as the 26th most translated author in the world. The following is excerpted from Iain H. Murray, The Undercover Revolution: How Fiction Changed Britain (The Banner of Truth Trust, 2009): In 1870 the largest group of new books to be published was religious. Works of fiction came fifth on the list. With reference to that era, the historian G.M. Trevelyan wrote: ‘The popular heroes of that period--and they were true heroes--were religious men first and foremost (Livingstone, Gordon, Lord Shaftesbury, Gladstone).’ ... however in 1886, a further census on popular literature put works of fiction at the head of the list. The following year Robert Louis Stevenson felt able to assert.. Read More View the full article
  15. CHINA’S SOCIAL CREDIT SYSTEM - SOCIALISM IN ACTION (Friday Church News Notes, February 15, 2019, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “China’s Social Credit System,” futurism.com, Dec. 2, 2017: “In a contentious world first, China plans to implement a social credit system (officially referred to as a Social Credit Score or SCS) by 2020. The idea first appeared in a document from the State Council of China published in June 2014. It is a technological advancement so shocking to modern-minded paradigms that many can do little but sit back in defeatist chagrin as science fiction shows.. Read More View the full article
