The Responsibilities Of A Good Shepherd

 

The Responsibilities of a Good Shepherd

 by Sandy Simpson

 This audio CD is a message based on this article.  There was a good reason why the illustration of a shepherd with his sheep was used so often in biblical times ... because it was an illustration people could easily identify with in their cultural context.  The illustrations we use are most effective when they are understood easily by the culture to which God has sent us to minister.  Middle eastern cultures understood what shepherding was all about.  It was about feeding the lambs and the sheep, bringing them to good pasture lands and water, grooming and clipping them, delivering new lambs, leading them and teaching them to stay together, going off after the wandering lost ones, and protecting the sheep in the field and in the fold.  We are all under shepherds and Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd.  We need to emulate what the Good Shepherd does for the sheep.

 Proclaiming The Gospel         

 "This site, Proclaiming The Gospel by Mike Gendron,  has been designed to lead Roman Catholics to saving faith in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. As well, providing valuable information for those desiring to reach family and friends engulfed by deception. For 34 years Evangelist Michael P. Gendron was a devout Roman Catholic and a strong defender of the "one true church." In 1981, after hearing the Gospel for the first time at a 3 day Josh McDowell seminar Mike trusted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. His new excitement and hunger for the inspired word of God lead him to help organize the very first Little Rock Scripture Study in Dallas at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. The more he studied the Scriptures, however, the more he became aware how official Catholic teachings had added requirements for salvation to the finished work of Christ."

Dear All,

Many teachings from the Bible have been redefined for our generation.  Be careful of those who do not regard the written Word as our highest authority in all matters of Faith and practice.  Avoid those who have another understanding of "the Kingdom".  Run away (John 10:5) from false Latter Rain prophets and apostles.  And, by all means, discern and test EVERYTHING (1 Thes. 5:21), not in a hypocritical way (Matt. 7:1), but by rightly handling the Word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15).  Then mark and avoid those who do not teach in line with the Bible (Rom. 16:17).

Only Scripture

by Pastor Anton Bosch, 8/31/11Anton Bosch Ministries

 

One of the non-negotiable essentials of orthodox Christianity has always been the completeness of Scripture. By completeness we mean that the Bible (66 books) is the complete and final revelation of God to man. Nothing is to be added to the Scriptures, nothing is to be taken away from it, and nothing is to be placed above, or next to it (in authority or priority). The Bible stands on its own, is complete, and is the final measure by which every other doctrine, statement, creed or revelation is to be judged.

A Tale Of Two Kingdoms

by Sandy Simpson, 8/31/11ACT Logo 2

Be careful of those who teach about a "kingdom" that is not the same as what the Bible teaches. There are two kingdoms being taught in many churches today. Teaching about one of the kingdoms is on the decline while the other is being promoted all over the place.  I am warning Christians that they need to check out who is using the word "kingdom", the books they have been reading and recommend on building "the kingdom", the people they have been hanging out with at conferences, and what they mean by "the kingdom". Biblical Christians need to understand that many of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), Emergent Church, Church Growth, Word of Faith and other related movements are operating under a paradigm shift.  Because of that when they use the word "kingdom" they do not have the same biblical concept of that word that biblical Christians do.  Whether purposely or under the influence of the Zeitgeist, the "new breed" paradigm shifters use the word "kingdom" in order to lure people into their Dominionist/social gospel worldview.  They know that most Christians love to hear about the "kingdom" so they act like they are talking to them in the unity of the Faith.  But they are not. This is an old trick of the false teachers and cults.  They redefine certain words so that when they talk to biblical Christians they can sound like they are on the same page.  For instance, the New Age cult called "Unity" did this years ago with many Christian terms and was able to lure in some people on that basis. Once you lure them in then you slowly brainwash them away from their former understanding of those terms into a new paradigm. The first concept is called Kingdom "Kingdom Now (KN)" and the second we will call "Kingdom Come (KC)".  "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" (Matt. 6:10).  KN claims this prayer is about Kingdom Now.  Biblical Christians understand this is referring to the Kingdom being first established in the spirits of born again believers (Col. 1:13) and finally physically established in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ when He returns (1 Cor. 15:24), since the dominion over the earth currently has been temprarily given to the devil (Luke 4:5-8, Eph. 2:2). 1Jo 5:19  "We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one."

"Touch Not Mine Anointed"

by Kevin Reeves, 9/1/11LT Publishing

Perhaps the single biggest factor hindering acknowledgment and genuine repentance of false doctrine is the unwillingness for believers to relinquish the superstar status of their spiritual heroes. And how many times had our [church] leadership supported this by telling us not to name names? It was the one thing above all others that tied my hands and put a gag in my mouth. Although I was told to go ahead and speak to whomever I wanted to within our group, such presentations were always followed up with appropriate damage control by the leadership. And I was forbidden to breach the unwritten hyper-charismatic code and expose people like Kenneth Copeland during the times I filled the pulpit....
