    RSS Robot got a reaction from Alan in Man and His Labor   

    “Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.” (Psalm 104:23)


    The 104th Psalm is a beautiful psalm of creation and the Flood, supplemented by God’s providential care of His creatures in the post-Flood world. Our text makes man’s activity seem almost incidental in the grand scope of God’s activities on behalf of His whole c... More...

    ISRAEL’S PRIME MINISTER SEEKS RUSSIA’S HELP AGAINST IRAN (Friday Church News Notes, September 1, 2017, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - In his meeting with Vladimir Putin on August 23, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sought Russia’s help in resisting Iran’s growing influence. Netanyahu told Putin that Iran’s growing presence in Syria is deeply concerning because it has vowed Israel’s destruction. Netanyahu said, “Mr. President, with joint efforts we are defeating Islamic State, and this is a very important thing, but the bad thing is that where the defeated Islamic State group vanishes, Iran is stepping in. We cannot forget for a single minute that Iran threatens every day to annihilate Israel. ... Read More View the full article

    Although Christ has set the believer free from legalistic bondage, he is now under a still higher law—the law of Christ. It is also called “the law of the Spirit of life” that has made us “free from the law of sin and death” (More...

    RSS Robot got a reaction from Invicta in Way of Life:A Private Prayer Language?   
    A Private Prayer Language?
    Pentecostals and Charismatics often teach that there are two types of tongues described in the New Testament: the “public language tongues” of Pentecost and the “private prayer” tongues of 1 Corinthians 14:4 -- “He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.” Some call this distinction “ministry tongues” and “devotional tongues.”
    Early Pentecostal leaders understood that biblical tongues were real earthly languages. They even thought they would be able to go to foreign mission fields and witness through miraculous tongues without having to learn the languages. Those who attempted this, though, returned bitterly disappointed!

    Paul Chappell's youngest son, Matt, has started a contemporary church called Rock Hill Church in Fontana, California.
    Paul ordained him for this work on April 25, 2016, and has tweeted praise for the new work.

    RSS Robot got a reaction from Pastor Scott Markle in Way of Life:Clothing is a Language   
    Clothing is a Language
    It is important to understand that clothing is a language. It is a “social message,” a fashion “statement.”
    Wikipedia defines fashion as “a prevailing mode of expression.” It acknowledges that “every article of clothing carries a cultural and social meaning” and observes that “humans must know the code in order to recognize the message transmitted.”
    The knowledge of this is the engine that drives the fashion industry, and the child of God needs to understand it, as well.
    I need to ask myself what message is my clothing broadcasting?
    American fashion designer Rachel Zoe said, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak” (goodreads.com).

    The Human Hand
    The following is excerpted from “Made in His Image: The Connecting Power of Hands,” R. Guliuzza, M.D., Institute for Creation Research:
    “Human finger movements excel in precision and speed . The average time a person takes to make a common choice between two things is about half of a second. But rapid finger motions are much faster--in fact even faster than is physically possible using only the body's sensor-to-motor loops. To obtain the highest possible finger speeds, sensors and conscious thought are augmented in the brain with an anticipatory function for individual finger movements called a forward plan , which is extraordinarily complex and significantly subconscious. Evidence shows that the central nervous system predicts the best outcome of every finger movement several movements ahead of its current state. Thus, skilled typists will visually process up to eight characters in advance and then--in anticipation--the forward plan for muscle movements will commit the finger muscles to an action about three characters in advance of actually...
