New DVD!
Examine Yourselves & Hold On!
by Sandy Simpson, ACT ACT Logo 2
9/12 
 

 

This DVD is a message based on the articles "Examine Yourself To See If You Are In The Faith" and "Hold On!"

 

Examine Yourselves & Hold On! 
2 Cor. 13:5  Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.
Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you- unless, of course, you fail the test?

 

People who call themselves followers of Christ or "Christians" and claim they are born again must believe certain things.  If they do not then they fail the test of faith.  They can claim they are born again all they want and "once saved, always saved" but if they fail the test of faith there is no eternal security.  Only God knows who will be saved, from beginning to end, because of His foreknowledge and omniscience (Rom. 8:29, 1 Pet. 1:2).  God did not make an arbitrary judgment about who would be saved and who would not.  His Spirit is given to those He foreknew, when convicted of sin by His Holy Spirit, would choose to believe and commit themselves to Jesus Christ.  We are not God and we do not have His omniscience.  Therefore, according to Paul, we must be sure our belief system is in the right place once our eyes have been opened to the Truth.  I am not saying we do not have assurance of salvation, but our assurance comes not only because of His Atonement and promises of salvation but from our continuing in the Faith, which is always the Biblical criteria. Those who would be Bible teachers must teach according to the whole counsel of God's Word.  Let me be clear. There is only one way to salvation.  That is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.  I will deal with a few of those issues following, but it is important to recognize that being saved is not just a matter of believing that Jesus lived, or that He was a man, or simply giving mental ascent to His existence in whatever form.

Lost In Translation UPDATE
by Biblical Missiology, 9/8/12

Frankly, we're disappointed. Your "participation" was signing an online petition asking Frontiers to keep "Father" and "Son" in their Bible translations--and now you're being invited to support them. Some of you told us you were offended; others were confused. We agree. While you can use the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of Frontiers' email, today we asked Frontiers to stop sending support emails to people who didn't ask to be on their distribution list--people who have even expressed deep concerns about the work of Frontiers.  What was notably missing in Frontiers' report was any reference to their commitment to continue defending Bible translations that remove, revise or obscure the Scriptural terms for "Father," "Son" or "Son of God." For example, Frontiers produced the True Meaning of the Gospel of Christ in Arabic, which always removes "Father" in reference to God, and redefines or removes "Son." The Great Commission in Matthew 28:19 reads, "Cleanse them by water in the name of God, his Messiah, and his Holy Spirit," tragically avoiding the biblical and trinitarian wording of ". . . in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." The True Meaning is still for sale on Amazon (UK) and the Al Kalima website.

 The Law of Prosperity
by The Berean Call, 9/6/12 The Berean Call

TBC: Ralph Waldo Trine was one of the early influences on the prosperity doctrine taught by E.W. Kenyon and then by today's word faith movement. Prosperity is seen to be the result of a "law of prosperity" which can be tapped by those that understand its secrets. Hagin, Copeland, Capps and other more modern teachers are simply repeating the metaphysical ideas of Trine.
