Clear Biblical Truth in an Age of Spiritual Darkness

The Presence of the Lord: Part 2 — The Lord’s Work in the Lord’s Way

Patio Garden

In the Bible record, otherwise godly men would sometimes choose their own methods to accomplish the Lord’s work. Ignoring the Lord’s clear commands on how to do His work in His way. Choosing, instead, to work in another way to fulfill some promise or desire God had expressed to them.

This simple ignoring of God’s word in the name of a good Christian cause is an apt description of the New Evangelical movement. A movement that began back in the 1940s which has drastically changed the course of Evangelicalism.

Today Is The Day

Malabar Cloud B

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24)

It’s hard to say that verse without hearing the song that has become so closely associated with it. It is a joyous phrase. One that comes to mind, at least for me, primarily in those times when I am low and fearful of what lies ahead.

But, recently, in the midst of a lot of physical ailments I’ve been dealing with in this “summer of pain” (Sorry. I probably sound like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh) it occurred to me that this verse is an everyday verse.

Not just a good-day verse.

The Presence of the Lord: Part 1

2 Seats on Patio

The Lord’s presence is taken for granted by many Christians today.

In fact, most churches just assume that the Lord is present and delighted in most everything that they do.

All because an opening prayer was made in Jesus’ name, beautiful hymns were sung, the pastor preached a very passionate sermon, or that people really felt the presence of the Lord in the service that day.

Salvation By Baptism?

palm fireworks A

Of all the stumbling blocks that confuse men regarding the way of salvation, baptism is near the top of the list.

It is difficult to find a religious denomination that does not teach some form of baptismal regeneration. Or to put it another way, salvation that is linked, in some way, to the practice of water baptism. Regardless of whether one is sprinkled with water or immersed beneath it, it is popularly taught that this ritual is a major component of salvation.

The problem for all these groups is that the Bible doesn’t actual teach this.

Baptism has no relationship to salvation.

Nor does it have any effectiveness to cleanse from sin.

Offended by a Word

Camel

“For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.”      (Isaiah 29: 30-21)

Talk about an Old Testament scenario repeating itself in modern times. This verse is an incredible condemnation of our own American culture.

It’s Deja Vu, all over again.

To Know God “Personally”

morning glory aug

Last week, I was listening to a Catholic apologist on the radio. He was speaking about how Pope Benedict stressed, along with others within Catholic leadership, the importance of “having a personal relationship with God”.

Now, many will hear this and think nothing out of the ordinary about this. As if this is just something normal for Catholicism to teach.

But this really surprised me.

It is important to understand that the man who was speaking on the radio, had been an Evangelical before he converted to Catholicism. He has been a Catholic now for 22 years.

He also claimed that Catholicism offered “a more direct way to God”. Than supposedly the Evangelical or Fundamental route.

Again, this got my attention.

Bigfoot Thoughts

s-l1000

Back when I first started this blog, I mentioned the desire to discuss a wide variety of topics. Such as the Paranormal field, UFOs, and, my personal favorite, Sasquatch.

And to deal with these subjects from a specifically Christian perspective.

Now, many people who come to this sight might have no interest in these topics. Or may think that I should not have any interest in these topics. As if Christians should not think about or discuss such trivial things.

Or that, by discussing this stuff, the Christian message loses credibility. As if to say, that believing in Bigfoot is just foolishness; like believing in Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny.

To which I must reply, What do you mean there’s no Santa Claus?! And are you telling me there is no Easter Bunny?!

Just a note to anyone who has made a comment over the last month or so. Have been having issues with nothing showing up on my end. Not sure how to fix that. But will keep trying. Just want everyone to know that your comments weren’t ignored! They just weren’t reaching me. Sorry for any inconvenience.

America in the Last Days

Fire Sky Reserve

God commanded nations and peoples to spread out across the whole earth.

This plan was established in the beginning. According to the Genesis record of God and His dealings with men. So that men would spread out and live happily within “the bounds of their habitation.” (Acts 17:26)

No nation or people has ever existed outside of the influence of God.

Meaning, that every nation knows what is right and what is wrong. This has always been the case. Even with those tribes that have existed in the most remote corners of the world.

But this is not a popular belief.
