  1. The Finely-Tuned Universe Charles Townes, Ph.D. in physics from the California Institute of Technology; Nobel Prize in Physics 1964; professor at Columbia University, MIT, and the University of California, Berkeley, observes: “Intelligent design, as one sees it from a scientific point of view, seems to be quite real. This is a very special universe: it's remarkable that it came out just this way. If the laws of physics weren't just the way they are, we couldn't be here at all. The sun couldn't be there, the laws.... Read More View the full article
  2. “The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.” (Isaiah 52:10) The human arm is often used in the Bible to symbolize spiritual strength or power. The word is first used in Jacob’s dying prophecy concerning his beloved son Joseph: “But his bow abode in strength, a... More... View the full article
  3. “I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?” (1 Corinthians 6:5) The word for “shame” in this verse is the Greek entrope, meaning “turning inward” or “inversion.” It is used only one other time, in View the full article
  4. Reminder: What Lighthouse Trails Believes About Israel We have been shocked and utterly dismayed at witnessing a growing distain for Israel and the Jews by those within the evangelical camp. Sadly, we have learned that even some who read Lighthouse Trails fall in this category. That has been surprising to us because we have been very vocal about where our sympathies lie since our […] The post Reminder: What Lighthouse Trails Believes About Israel appeared first on .

  5. “Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.” (Ecclesiastes 7:3) People like to be made to laugh, and many professional comics make a good living telling jokes and doing slapstick comedy. Even in the realm of Christian ministry, those preachers and teachers who can keep their audiences laughing are often th... More... View the full article
  6. Make Sunday More Meaningful for Your Soul… Going to church tomorrow? I hope you will be in a healthy, thriving, gospel-centered, substance-rich environment. A healthy church is the most beautiful organization on earth, and makes Sunday the BEST day of the whole week. I hope you can anticipate Sunday! I hope God has placed you in a church where you are nurtured with green pasture and still waters. Yet, even the healthiest and nutritious church can fall dead on a lethargic or poorly prepared heart. So, would you like to make Sunday more meaningful to your soul? Here are ten ways to do so: 1. Get enough sleep Saturday night—simple but huge! Groggy and irritable are not ways to wake up Sunday morning. 2. Invite someone to be your guest—someone will come if you invite them, and trust me—with a guest, you’ll be engaged in every single part of the service! 3. Seek to bless more than be blessed—most come to church as consumers—we all need to be blessed. But when you seek first to bless, church takes on a new level of joy! Serve, greet, help, encourage… someone else needs you. 4. Deliberately engage in worship—get off auto-pilot and decide to legitimately think about what you are singing. Abandon your insecurity or inhibition and actually sing in honor to the Lord. Your heart will be seriously impacted! 5. Ask God to speak through His word—this simple prayer can prepare you to actually listen for what God is trying to say to you. 6. Decide to respond before you even hear—anticipate the change God desires to bring about in your life, and the positive outcomes that accompany submission to His word. 7. Bring an offering of worship—Jesus said that giving engages our hearts. Invest into the gospel and watch your heart grow in love for the gospel. 8. If possible, pre-read the text—Just before you sleep, read the passage you will be studying in the service the next day. Sleep on it and see how God expounds it. 9. Anticipate spiritual battles—Is there any day of such intense spiritual battles and distractions like Sunday morning? If Satan is working that hard to drive you insane and keep you home, do you really want to let him win? 10. Focus your heart upward and outward—Inward focus (who’s my friend, how do I compare, me, me, me) is always a joy-killer at church. Look up to Jesus and outward towards others, and watch your heart come alive in worship and service. If you attend a healthy church, you are a part of that health. If you attend an unhealthy church, you are a part of “un-health.” Decide to be the health that you hope your church will have. It’s Saturday night—your pastor is praying and prepared. The music is rehearsed. The teachers are studied. The building is cleaned. The teams are prayed over. Seed is sown. Gospel has been shared. Discipleship is in process. New hearts are anticipating what God will teach them tomorrow. In a few hours—Welcomes will flow. Coffee and donuts consumed. Worship will rise. Fellowship will flourish. The gospel will be shared. Grace will be seen. Lives will be rescued. Homes will begin to mend. Hearts will find strength. Hurts will begin to heal. Unconditional love will be displayed and then proclaimed. Decisions will be made that will change the course of lives for generations. Hearts will find the love they’ve been seeking their whole life. We get to be a part of it. There’s no other day like Sunday! Anticipate it. Prepare for it. Don’t miss it! View the full article

  8. “And let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not.” (Ruth 2:16) This verse contains the unusual instruction of Boaz to his servants concerning Ruth after she asked if she could glean after the reapers in his field of barley.

  9. Friday Church News Notes 500th ANNIVERSARY OF THE PROTESTANT REFORMATION (Friday Church News Notes, June 23, 2017, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - This year is the 500th anniversary of the posting of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses which led to the Protestant Reformation. The name “Protestant” originated with a group of German princes who protested against Rome twelve years later in 1529. The term typically refers to denominations that arose from that era--particularly Lutheran, Presbyterian, Anglican (Episcopal), and Methodist--but it is often used to describe all non-Catholic denominations. Though the Protestants came out of Rome and rejected many of Rome’s errors, they also… Read More View the full article
  10. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1) One of the key doctrines of Christianity is the union of the believer with Christ. In fact, the expression “in Christ” or its equivalent is found over 160 times in Paul’s epistles alone. Since, in God’... More... View the full article

  13. Good Churches Ruined by Bad Associations After studying the emerging church for the past five years, including attending one of the largest emerging church conferences with media credentials, reading several dozen of their books, and interviewing some prominent emerging leaders--and at the same time observing what is happening among fundamental Baptists--in 2011 I issued a warning that most independent Baptist churches will be well down the contemporary/emerging path within a generation. I am more convinced of this with each passing month. “ Why Most Independent Baptist Churches Will Be Emerging within 20 Years ” is a free eBook available at the Way of Life web site. In this book I list the following eight reasons for my prediction:... Read More View the full article

  15. The Religious Harlot “Church” of Revelation 17 The Bible teaches that the apostasy will increase until a “one world church” is formed. This is signified by the religious harlot of Revelation 17. 1. The pure Bride of Christ becomes a wicked fallen woman. This downfall started even during the days of the apostles when some of the churches were committing spiritual fornication with the world (James 4:4). Demas was one of those who turned from the truth because he loved the world (2 Tim. 4:10). The doctrine of Balaam and Jezebel was operating... Read More View the full article
