An Overlooked Bible Verse by Christians at Holiday Time

This Bible verse is sometimes interpreted as meaning meats sacrificed to idols (Gill did this, for one) but that cannot be since we have liberty to eat these meats with thanksgiving unless it offends a fellow Christian. No, the word is to abstain-to utterly avoid it.

Acts 15:20 but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols

and verse 29 that you abstain from things offered to idols

How many Christians confess to knowing the pagan background of the things of Christ Mass and Easter? And then they go on to disobey God’s Word. Even today, these things are used in the idol worship of Wicca.

Coming Out of the Box with the Last Reformation?

Study - Grow - Know

Torben Sondergaard says we are in the "Last Reformation." Torben Sondergaard says we are in the “Last Reformation.”

Torben Søndergaard is a guy who firmly believes Christians are missing out today. He wants us to get back to living the book of Acts.  He has an on-line (free) school that is not designed to be “a lot of theology to your head.” His emphasis is on what he calls the “Last Reformation.”

The Last Reformation is a new movement, started in 2011, that is now spreading all over the world. It is about coming back to what we read in the book of Acts. We believe that what we read in the book of Acts is also for today and that we need to come back to the simple disciple life the first Christians had. We believe that The Last Reformation is a reformation about the true gospel and the simple disciple life, but also…

Luke 9

51 And it came to pass, when the time was come that he should be received up, he stedfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, 52 and sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. 53 And they did not receive him, because his face was as though he would go to Jerusalem. 54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? 55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

Liberty: To Walk in Holiness Unhindered

He Hath Said

And I will walk at liberty: for I seek Thy precepts. -Psalm 119:45

Do you know what the liberty of a child of God is, dear friends, or are you all your lifetime subject to bondage? If you are a child of God, you do know something of it, but if you are not initiated into the mystery of the inner life, you will very probably confound liberty with license. The liberty of the man of the world is liberty to commit evil without restraint: the liberty of a child of God is to walk in holiness without hindrance. When the believer’s ways are enlarged, he delights to run in the statutes of the Lord; obedience is freedom to the Lord’s servant. Christ’s yoke is easy, and His burden is light. I fear that very many of you who are present this morning are slaves-some of you slaves to…

When Should You Correct Another Christian?

~Aaron Menikoff

We live in an age hostile to correction. “No” has become a four-letter word in the modern vernacular. Our non-Christian friends don’t want to be told their unbelief warrants God’s judgment. That’s to be expected. But often our Christian friends don’t want to be corrected, either. And that’s sad, because a rebuke can be good for the soul. “The wise of heart,” says Solomon, “will receive correction” (Prov 10:8).

So how do you know when to correct a brother or sister in Christ? “To make an apt answer is a joy to a man, and a word in season, how good it is!” (Prov. 15:23). How do we know when to give that word? Thankfully, Scripture provides a trustworthy answer. It tells us when to correct and when to overlook.

Do you pray against Antichrist?

Feileadh Mor

spurgeon004“It is the bounden duty of every Christian to pray against Antichrist, and as to what Antichrist is no sane man ought to raise a question. If it be not the popery in the Church of Rome there is nothing in the world that can be called by that name. If there were to be issued a hue and cry for Antichrist, we should certainly take up this church on suspicion, and it would certainly not be let loose again, for it so exactly answers the description.”
