Mid Acts and Jail (1 Corinthians an example)

Those who fail to discern the Acts 28 boundary and start the un-evolved, created Church in mid Acts are destined to fight the Acts context while attempting to harmonize the ordinances (traditions) then present with the age in which we live where none of these signs, wonders and traditions have any place. Reality and substance along with shadow were present in the time when Jew was first Rom. 1:16,17. This is especially clear in 1 Corinthians (see First Corinthians study):

I was thinking about the church where I was saved in 1953.  We had Sunday School (Bible teaching) and a preaching service on Sunday morning.  On Sunday night we had Training Union (Christian training) and a preaching service.  On Wednesday night prayer meeting and preaching.  Most everyone, children included, brought their own Bible.  We could even have what they called "Responsive Reading" (a person would read a verse of scripture and the congregation would read the next verse in response.)  Wouldn't that be something today?  It would sound like Babylon with everyone having a different Bib

Many years ago I was invited to conduct a weekly "spiritual hour" at one of the drug/alcohol rehab facilities in our town.  Realizing that the term "spiritual hour" could take on many different definitions and be very ambiguous, I wanted to clarify with the director of the facility what he could expect from me.  We both agreed that "spiritual hour" at his facility would simply be "Jesus Christ and the Bible."  It would not include a specific church, denomination or religion.  I can thank the inmates in the Big Spring Federal Prison who attended my Bible class for making me aware of clarifyi

This decade has witnessed an increased hatred in our world toward Jesus Christ.  During most of our lifetime, opposition and animosity toward Jesus Christ has been low-key and among the minority.  Today, more and more are becoming openly vocal toward the Lord of Lords and King of Kings.  Jesus told His disciples, when questioned about the end time, that they would be hated by all men for His name's sake (Matthew 24:9.)

The gospel given to Paul by Jesus Christ was of the utmost importance to Paul.  He took it very seriously; he did not allow it to be changed or, as he said, be "perverted."

"I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.  But though we, or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you that that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

The Barna Research Company just released the results of an ongoing study regarding American attendance to the Christian church.  Please remember that their definition of the "Christian church"  includes many non Christians by Bible standards.  Barna's Christian church includes Catholics, Protestants and other religions.

Christmas is here again.!  I love this time of year and…yes…I am familiar with all of the problems, both real and imagined.  There is the commercialism, the falsehoods presented for facts and the multitudes who pay no attention to Christ's birth.

No, I do not believe that the tree in Jeremiah 10:1-5 is the Christmas tree.  I have never seen a tree with real "silver and gold," only silver and gold tinsel, and if you think they are the same, I would like to trade some silver and gold tinsel for your gold and silver.

We are often asked our opinion regarding "contemporary worship services."  I pray that I will answer this according to God's word and will.  I want to be careful because I feel there are many "babes" (1 Corinthians 3:1) that are sincere, but deceived about this matter.  One can be a "babe in Christ" without being a new Christian.  I spent many years with little or no growth in my Christianity, so the length of time one has been saved has nothing to do with their maturity in Christ.  I want to be kind, but more so, I want to honest and scriptural.  Love is n

"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."  2 Corinthians 6:17

Why do Christians fail?  Why is it there are no perfect Christians?  Why did some of God's most dedicated men falter, and sometimes horribly?  After the flood experience, Noah got drunk;  after being the friend of God, Abraham lied more than once; David committed adultery and murder after close communion with His Lord; Peter, after great experiences with Christ, denied Him, not once or twice, but three times!  Paul was drawn back into the shackles of Judaism after rebuking Peter for the same offense.
