  1. Biblical Church Discipline E Every church is required by God to rule itself by the sole authority for faith and practice, which is the New Testament faith recorded in the canon of Scripture. Christ is the one Head of the church, and as we see in Revelation 1-3, He walks in the midst of the churches and judges the churches. He will not judge a church on the basis of the society and culture in which it exists. He will judge solely on the basis of His Word which is eternally settled in heaven. We must not have an American church or an Australian church or a Nepali church or a Korean church or a Russian church. We must have a biblical... Read More View the full article
  2. “Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.” (1 John 4:13) It is surprising to note that this phrase “hereby know” occurs eight times in the little epistle of 1 John. Each of these listed below is given as a means of both testing the genuineness of our professed faith in Christ and then of giving assuranc... More... View the full article
  3. “But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions.” (Hebrews 10:32) Our American younger generation, like the Hebrew Christians back in the first generation after Christ, seems in grave danger of forgetting the great sacrifices of those earlier generations in this country who made our nation t...

  4. On Friday evening (May 26), Saddleback Church released a statement about the arrest of Ruben Meulenberg, the man who allegedly has been molesting boys at Saddleback. The Saddleback statement called Meulenberg a “student ministry volunteer.” Here is the full statement: We are shocked and grieved to share that this week a Saddleback member reported that […] View the full article
  5. As Lighthouse Trails has been researching the situation at Saddleback Church over the alleged molestation charges, we came across this YouTube video by a 29-year-old woman. We are posting this for informational and research purposes with the hope it will help parents think about their teens’ youth groups. Something to think about. Parents, let’s protect […] View the full article
  6. “He who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.” (Hebrews 3:3-4) Perhaps the single greatest category of evidence for supernatural creation is in the nature of the creation itself, which everywhere shows such intricate design that it could not have come about by random ...

  7. A Lighthouse Trails reader has alerted us to a news story in the Los Angeles Times (see below) about the arrest of a 32-year-old Saddleback Church male youth worker who has been accused of molesting two 14-year-old boys at Saddleback. Some may wonder why we are posting a news story about child sexual abuse. Since […] View the full article
  8. “And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried.” (Luke 16:22) Many scholars believe that the episode reported in Luke 16:19-31 actually happened, that it is a true story. If it is a parable, it is not identified as such, and it is the only one in which the name of a parti... More... View the full article
  9. Dear Lighthouse Trails: You may recall previous e-mails from me about the state of some Calvary Chapel fellowships here in the UK. It would appear that the majority are maintaining links with Brian Brodersen’s new CCGN including our pastor. I made mention that our pastor is very unhappy with organizations such as yourselves and questions your ability […] The rest of the story View the full article
  10. To Lighthouse Trails: Obama, Chancellor [of Germany] Angela Merkel, and Melinda Gates [Bill Gates’ wife] all attended and spoke at the Protestant assembly in Germany, Kirchentag, which rings in the beginning of Reformation Summer 2017. The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the Grand Imam of Cairo’s Al-Azhar Mosque Sheik Ahmed el-Tayyib, two additional Imams, a number […] View the full article
  11. Dear Lighthouse Trails: I am a member of a Baptist church affiliated with the SBC. My Sunday School class recently began the Not a Fan video Bible study, being supplemented by the Not a Fan journal [this link is to a sample of the journal] by Kyle Idleman. I was familiar with the book of […] View the full article

Friday Church News Notes KEN HAM’S CHRISTIAN ROCK CONCERT (Friday Church News Notes, May 26, 2017, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Toward the end of April, Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis (AiG) interviewed the CCM group Casting Crowns at his Ark Encounter museum and boldly promoted Christian rock to his supporters (“Casting Crowns at Ark Encounter,” Apr. 27, 2017, YouTube). During the interview, Mr. Ham said he was looking forward to hosting a Christian rock concert at the Ark Encounter featuring... Read More View the full article
  13. “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” (Philippians 4:23) The basic form of today’s verse appears 13 times in the New Testament. In Scripture, repetition is not for lack of something to say but the Holy Spirit’s intentional emphasis on something. God extends His grace to the very creation itself by merely keeping t... More...

  15. Third Generation Baptist Preacher Committed to Emerging Church The emerging church, its philosophy and direction, is illustrated by Chris Seay of Ecclesia (Church) in Houston, Texas. The emerging church is all about living as I please, about not being restricted by old biblical mores. Seay is a third generation Baptist pastor and the author of Faith of My Fathers: Conversations with Three Generations of Pastors about Church, Ministry, and Culture . In this book Seay describes how that his father and grandfather pastored traditional Southern Baptist churches. His grandfather pastored Magnum Oaks Baptist Church in Houston for 28 years but it closed its doors in 2002, soon after he retired.... Read More View the full article
