    RSS Robot got a reaction from swathdiver in Way of Life:Some Reasons for Bible Difficulties   
    Some Reasons for Bible Difficulties
    The Bible is God’s Word. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8-9). It is not surprising that the Bible contains things hard to be understood, because it is the revelation of the omniscient, omnipotent, eternal God. “A revelation coming down from an infinite Mind to finite minds must necessarily involve difficulties. This is true of all Christian doctrine. Take for instance the doctrine of God, or immortality, or the incarnation. There is no Christian doctrine altogether free from intellectual difficulties. ... Once we begin to reject the doctrines of Christianity because they involve some intellectual difficulty, then we shall finally reject them all. But when we have done this, when we have sought refuge in atheism, we shall find ourselves no better off than before. For the intellectual difficulties of unbelief are immensely greater than those of Christian faith. Let us settle one thing right here—we live in a universe of thought, and there is no place in this universe of thought where we can escape from all intellectual difficulties” (Alva J. McClain, The “Problems” of Verbal Inspiration ).... Read More View the full article

    RSS Robot got a reaction from swathdiver in Way of Life:Seek to Make the Church Stronger   
    Seek to Make the Church Stronger
    While there is a time to leave a church when it is clearly and irrevocably committed to unscriptural paths, it is also very important to do everything possible to strengthen existing churches insofar as this is possible. And regardless of how strong a church might be, there are doubtless ways it can be strengthened.
    A biblical church that has even many weaknesses is worth fighting for as long as there is hope of strengthening it.
    In regard to churches, I have two goals in my ministry. One is to strengthen existing Bible-believing churches, and the other is to encourage the establishment of new churches that are built on a strong foundation from the very beginning.

    Is God Finished With Israel?
    We are told by many that God is finished with Israel, that she has been replaced with the church, and that the church is Zion, and the earthly Jerusalem has been replaced with the heavenly Jerusalem.
    We have long been told this by covenant theologians who follow the “church fathers” that devised this view. Now we are hearing replacement theology taught by some Independent Baptists.
    In the video Marching to Zion , Steven Anderson teaches that Israel today, the Israel that returned to the land and established a modern state, is not the Israel of the Bible.

    A Regenerate Church Membership and Evidence of Salvation
    Salvation is the fundamental of fundamentals. Disciples can be made only of born again saints. A “nominal” Christian who has “prayed the prayer” but is not born again cannot be discipled.
    Salvation is the thing that is often missing in young people who grow up in Christian homes and churches. They go through the motions of professing Christ. They know how to give the right answers and to act right when necessary, but the reality of the kind of supernatural salvation that we see in Scripture is foreign to their daily lives.
    Consider the following testimony which is typical of hundreds we have received through the years: “Having taught in my church’s Christian school, I truly believe that out of an enroll... Read More View the full article

    Church Members Trying to Warn Sleeping Pastors
    I don’t like barking dogs, personally, but I do like a good guard dog. We have one of those. He is big and strong and bold enough to get the job done, and we haven’t been robbed again since we got him. Therefore I have learned to endure some barking and not always convenient barking! If any danger is around on some dark night, I want that old boy to bark away.
    What is far more important and valuable is a good spiritual watch dog. In Isaiah’s day, the watchmen were described by God as “dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.”
    This reminds me of a whole bunch of independent Baptist preachers today who used to be in the battle and who used to be zealous to protect their people from spiritual danger and error, but who are getting old and soft and are in a semi-retirement mode and are letting...

    Iam deeply concerned about the rapidly-growing compromise among independent Baptists. After I was saved in 1973, I didn’t know where to go to church. I was led to Christ by a Pentecostal man who went on his way the next day, and I have never seen him again. I began to study the Bible diligently, visit churches, listen to Christian radio, and read books, seeking God’s will about church membership. I knew that I wasn’t going back to the Southern Baptist Convention that I had grown up in, because they simply didn’t take the Bible seriously.
