Welcome to The School of Christ
This Week's Memory Verse:
"But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; Who will render to every man according to his deeds: "
Wake Up America: People Kill.
Genesis 6:11 “Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight, and the earth was filled with violence.” The earth was filled with violence in Noah’s day. Did this mean that people were shooting each
others with guns? Obviously not as guns didn't exist. Yet the earth was filled with violence. What was going on?
“And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years. And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.” (1Ki 16:29-30)
It would be unfair to pretend that previous president’s were somehow more moral or “Christian” than the current occupant of the White House. There has been a lot of public sin from that office over the years. But there can be no doubt that the current occupant has quickly proved that he’s in a class by himself when it comes to shaking his puny little fist at Almighty God.
BREAKING: Atheists Believe in Santa Claus!
Atheists are attacking Jesus and God again. No surprise there. Now they've purchased a billboard in Times Square to run through January 10, 2013. On the billboard they have a picture of Santa with the message "Keep the Merry" underneath is a picture of Jesus on the cross with the message "Dump the myth." This proves one thing...
Everybody Wants Heaven...
I’ve been to quite a few funerals over the years and one thing I’ve never seen is someone being eulogized with the plain and simple truth: “Actually, John was a miserable drunk who hated everyone, and hated God most of all. I have no doubt John is now burning in Hell for eternity.”
All Sins Forgiven? Past, Present and Future? NOT!
One of the popular statements of the “Once Saved Always Saved” false gospel is that when you "accept Jesus as your personal Savior" all your sins are forgiven: past, present and future. Then the argument is made that if all of your sins are already forgiven/pre-forgiven what sin could you possibly commit that would cost you your salvation. This sounds reasonable except for one key fact which changes everything.
The Great Gospel Deception - Introduction
The folks over at Heaven's Family have a mountain of resources available to the family of God. One of those resources is a book named "The Great Gospel Deception." I would consider this a must read for every one who names the Name of Christ.
What is Our Responsibility?
Because modern evangelical theology has become so contaminated with antinomian ideas that distort God’s grace and nullify human responsibility, today too many professing Christians piously pass off their biblical responsibilities to God. Beguiled by false teaching about grace, to them any mention of human effort is considered anathema, and under the subtle guise of defending God’s glory, they label any teaching about holiness as legalism.
Why Not Fertilize The Soil?
In Luke 13:1-9 Jesus tells a parable about a tree that isn't producing fruit. The owner of the vineyard wants it to be cut down as it isn't producing. But the vinedresser intercedes and states that he'll dig around it and fertilize it then give it one more year. This is wise advice that we would do well to follow. Instead, too much of the church does something completely different.
Walking With God
Genesis 5:24 - "And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him."
Obama has ‘got our back’?
That's the title of an interesting commentary over at Israel Hayom (Israel Today). Mr. Weinberg makes some excellent points that every American needs to consider. The saddest part about this piece, is that the mainstream media in this country simply won't report the truth for fear of de-railing Obama's re-election campaign.
Obama's Fruit Reveals: Unrepentant Sinner
For all the recent talk about Barack Obama supposedly being a Christian, a few key things are being missed. What might those be? How about the Bible verses which help us to understand who is actually a Christian and who isn't. Mr. Obama's supporters want to claim he's a Christian. But it's not up to them to make that decision. The only way to properly explore this is by searching the Scripture.
That Ye Present Your Bodies a Living Sacrifice
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
What Does It Mean To Be Saved?
This is THE question that every human being needs to ask! Thankfully, the folks at The Berean Call have taken the time to answer it. Make sure you read this as it's fundamental to Christianity. Read it here.
Thou Shalt Not Covet
Four words from the 10th commandment that speak volumes about the heart of sinful man. You can’t check the news without hearing about some left-wing organization that’s lusting for the goods that other people have worked for. They scream and chant about “greedy rich people” while conveniently overlooking their own greed. It’s exactly as God’s Word said it would be.
What Makes One a Christian?
A recent national survey "revealed" that approximately 85% of Americans claim to be a Christian. But if 85% of Americans ARE Christians, how come there's so much sin in America?
