Where should we as Christians get our values?

In our local community, Belgrade, Montana, there’s a bit of a struggle going on concerning pornography. Of course, the struggle is much larger than this small city, but this is where I live, and this is where I can possibly make an impact. I want to point out something to my fellow-believers of the Old . . . → Read More: Where should we as Christians get our values?

The Authority of the Scripture

Have you ever tried to explain why we confess that the Bible is the Word of God, inerrant, infallible and God-breathed? Why do we confess that the Scripture is our rule of faith and practice? I came across this in Augustine’s, On Christian Doctrine, Book I, Chap. 37, p. 533,

Super Bowl L commercial angers NARAL

Sunday, February 7, 2016, Super Bowl L was played. Like has been the case for many years now, the commercials shown during the broadcast were a huge part of the overall production. The cost is astronomical for each commercial spot. That being the case, the various entities vie to make the best spot. One of . . . → Read More: Super Bowl L commercial angers NARAL

Where have I been?!

Belgrade Christian Assembly’s website went down, due to a physical move on my part, around 7 weeks ago. The blog – The Truth Shall Set You Free! hadn’t been very active, in that I was trying out a new theme, but never got it customized to my liking. Although this blog is about discussing the . . . → Read More: Where have I been?!

DEFUNDED!

Praise the Lord that the state of Texas has de-funded Planned Parenthood! To be commended are the governor of that great state and all those working with him to take tax dollars away from this organization responsible for most of the abortions in Texas, and guilty of violating federal laws in the trafficking of aborted . . . → Read More: DEFUNDED!

Today, November 6: U.S.A. election!

If you’re a believer in Jesus Christ, then you are admonished in the Word of God, to: “First of all, of primary importance, offer up supplications, prayers, intercessions, giving of thanks, on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life . . . → Read More: Today, November 6: U.S.A. election!

Obamacare

It will be interesting to see how the elected officials who pushed for this, who voted for this, who promoted this monstrosity as *not* being a tax, will now explain how SCOTUS allowed it to stand, only because it *is* a tax. It could not stand under the commerce clause, but with the power of . . . → Read More: Obamacare

The Lord’s Message Was Himself

Fundamentally, our Lord's message was Himself. He did not come merely to preach a Gospel; He himself is that Gospel. He did not come merely to give bread; He said, "I am the bread." He did not come merely to shed light; He said, "I am the light." He did not come merely to show the door; He said, "I am the door." He did not come merely to name a shepherd; He said, "I am the shepherd." He did not come merely to point the way; He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
--J. Sidlow Baxter (1903-1999, Australian born pastor and theologian who authored as many as thirty books)

The Beginning of Coldness in the Heart

"Forsake not the assembling of yourselves together," is a most important exhortation.
Even if we should not derive any especial benefit, at the time, so far as we are
conscious, yet we may be kept from much harm. And very frequently the beginning
of coldness of heart is nourished by keeping away from the meetings of the saints.
-- George Muller

Freedom & Extinction

I came across this profound quote of President Ronald Reagan that is worth sharing:

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We did not pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

Thanksgiving – Thursday, November 24, 2011

Why should we here in the U.S.A. be thankful? "Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, for His mercy endures forever." And we are told in the Bible, "It is He that made us and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture." Let's not allow ourselves to fall below the level of animals as did the people of God addressed in Isaiah 1: "The ox knows his owner, and the donkey its master's manger; but Israel does not know, my people do not consider." Take time to thank the Lord for all that He does. And if you have not yet received the gift of eternal life, you may do so by accepting it as a free gift paid for by the precious blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become sons of God"
