  1. 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
  2. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Revelation 12:11) This is the last reference in the Bible to the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ; here, it is the overcoming blood, enabling believers to withstand the deceptions and accusations of Satan. There ... More... View the full article
  3. 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
  4. “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” (Genesis 5:24) Surely one of the most godly, as well as interesting, characters who ever lived was Enoch. He is one of only two who lived before the Flood (Noah also, Genesis 6:9) of whom it is said that he “walked with God.” He is also one o... More... View the full article
  5. Letter to the Editor: Former New Age Follower Shares Vital Information With Her Pastors and Church Leaders Dear Lighthouse Trails: Several years ago, I learned that our church was planning to do a labyrinth walk. A pattern had been set up in one of the rooms, and stations were placed along the path at which to perform rituals and meditate. From my experience in the New Age prior to becoming a Christian, […] The post Letter to the Editor: Former New Age Follower Shares Vital Information With Her Pastors and Church Leaders appeared first on .

  6. Let the Dead Bury the Dead The Lord Jesus warned that we must love Him more than our relatives.: “And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God” (Luke 9:59-60). At first glance it appears that Christ was forbidding the first man to return home and simply attend the funeral of his father, but it is more likely that the passage refers to the Jewish custom that a son would care for his father until he dies and then would inherit his wealth. Christ was therefore warning of two dangers: First, He was warning of putting worldly security ahead of God’s will. Christ had called the man to follow Him, but instead of obeying without hesitation the man was making excuses and putting off the call. Family relationships are... Read More View the full article
  7. “And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” (Matthew 24:6) Christians are often chided because they are looking for the return of Christ rather than improving this present world. The fact is, however, that Bible-believing Christians have been largely responsible for... More... View the full article

  9. Steven Anderson’s Holocaust Denial In his YouTube video “The Holocaust Hoax Exposed,” Steven Anderson says the Holocaust is a “fantastic story that has no basis in reality” and that it is believed because “most people have just not looked at the details.” He says, “There is a mountain of evidence on why this never could have taken place.” He does admit that a lot of Jews died of harsh conditions and a lot were murdered, but he does not believe that the Jews were systematically exterminated by the Nazis in World War II. “The fact that people were rounded up and placed in forced labor camps does not mean that they were exterminated and cremated to the tune of six million. ... Honestly, these ... Read More View the full article
  10. “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God.” (Revelation 3:14) This salutation in the last of the seven church epistles in Revelation contains the last of four occurrences of the distinctive phrase “the beginning of the creation.” The g...

  11. “Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?” (Hebrews 12:9) In these days when parents are urged by special interest and political groups not to discipline their children, and children’s rights are championed at the expense of p...

  12. By Meister des Codex Aureus Epternacensis [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons Do you remember the story? A painter tells it in three panels. The first panel covers: There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. (Luke 16:19-21 KJV) Then we move to the second panel: 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 KJV) But the third covers a great deal more information – a conversation: And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. (Luke 16:23-25 KJV) If we buffet-pick from scripture, we could just read these verses and determine if we have riches in this life, we will not in the next; and reverse, if we have bad in this life, we will have good in the next. However, that’s not the end of the story. Through the gulf between them, the rich man begs: Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead. (Luke 16:27-31 KJV) “Though one rose from the dead.” We can certainly believe this part, can’t we. We each know loved ones who have not responded to any of the scriptures – except to brow-beat Christians who fail to do what they deem scriptures require. We all fail to meet the perfection that is our example in Jesus, and we are all grateful that our salvation depends on Him, not our actions. I do know of many who believed in His resurrection – they saw Him. The disciples. Crowds of people. Most emphatically, Saul. They wrote what they had seen and told others who told others for millennia and now it’s down to us. We each have the choice to read the scriptures, be persuaded by the prophets and listen to the one who rose from the dead. Or, not.View the full article
