Hymns - Jewels From Anne Steele - Apr. 18
Anne Steele (1717–1778) was a pioneering Baptist female hymn writer of the First Great Awakening era. Called “the female poet of the Sanctuary” and “the mother of the English hymn,” she published 144 hymns, 34 psalms versified, and 30 poems.
 Yet we will see that Anne Steele’s hymns have dropped out of most Baptist hymnals since the turn of the 20th century.
 Anne’s father and grandfather were pastors. The Steeles were from a long line of non-conformists that were persecuted for their faith. John Rede, founder of Anne’s church, was imprisoned in the Tower of London for a number of years in the early 1660s.
 “Though, after the Glorious Revolution of 1688, Dissenters were granted relative freedom of worship, they still had not been given full

The Fundamental Doctrine of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture - Apr. 17
In our estimation, the doctrine of the Pre-tribulation Rapture is a fundamental of the New Testament faith. While I can’t answer every question that can be raised on this issue (or any other major doctrine), I find more than enough clear Scripture to settle the timing of the Rapture and to be convinced that it is an essential doctrine.
 Among other things, the Pre-Tribulation Rapture is necessitated by the
clearly taught doctrine of the imminency of Christ’s return and by the doctrine of the distinction between the church and Israel and by a proper interpretation of Daniel’s.. Read More
From Unisex Fashion to Drag Queens - Apr. 16
Caedmon’s Call was formed in 1993 with six founding members (Cliff Young, Danielle Glenn, Todd Bragg, Cari Harris, Doug Elmore, and Aaron Tate). Derek Webb joined early on and wrote many of the group’s songs. Webb left in 2003 to pursue a solo career, and he has been on and off with the band since then (2007-2011, 2022).
 As with the vast majority of contemporary worship groups, there was always a unisex emphasis in Caedmon’s Call (founded 1993). It is one of the many ways that they are conformed to the world in direct disobedience to God’s Word (Romans 12:2). Some of the men wear earrings and long hair, while the female of the group wears pants. This unisex theme has been taken to its logical conclusion by Derek Webb, who now wears dresses, makeup..

UCLA MED SCHOOL LECTURER DEMANDS STUDENTS PRAY FOR “MAMA EARTH” (Friday Church News Notes, April 12, 2024,, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “UCLA Med School,” The Washington Free Beacon, Apr. 2, 2024: “In a mandatory course on "structural racism" for first-year medical students at the University of California Los Angeles, a guest speaker who has praised Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack on Israel led students in chants of ‘Free, Free Palestine’ and demanded that they bow down to ‘mama earth,’ according to students in the class and audio obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. Lisa ‘Tiny’ Gray-Garcia, who has referred to the Oct. 7 terrorist attacks as ‘justice,’ began the March 27 class by leading students in what she described as a ‘non-secular prayer’ to ‘the ancestors..

Hymns - Jewels From Charles Wesley - Apr. 11
Charles Wesley (1707-1778) was preeminent hymn writer of the First Great Awakening era, co-founder with his brother John of the Methodist Church. John was primarily the preacher. He rode 250,000 miles on horseback and preached over 42,000 sermons in his lifetime, an average of 500 times yearly. Charles was primarily the hymn writer. He wrote 6,000 hymns. He wrote an average of 30 lines of poetry daily for 50 years.
 The Wesleys built their hymn singing on the foundation laid by Isaac Watts.
 “As the architect of the modern English hymn, Watts had raised a platform on which the Wesleys were able to build. Of the seventy hymns in John Wesley’s first hymn book, published in America in 1737, more than a third were by Isaac Watts” (Rees, A Nation of Singing Birds).
 The Wesleys were also influenced by Moravian hymn singing. They first encountered Moravians on their voyage to America in 1736 to do missionary work.. Read More

The New Testament Fragments in the Dead Sea Caves - Apr. 4
The following report is summarized from Bill Cooper’s The Authenticity of the New Testament Fragments of Qumran (2016). Cooper gives more information about these amazing fragments in The Authenticity of the New Testament: The Gospels, Appendix 3, “More on the Fragments from Qumran Cave 7.”
 Bill Cooper (1947-2021) was a prolific writer and speaker, with a gift of cutting through the fog of higher and textual criticism to defend the infallible, plenary, verbal inspiration of Scripture, the six-day creation, and the Masoretic Hebrew and Received Greek texts. He was a council member of the Creation Science Movement and the Tyndale Society and an adjunct professor for the Institute for Creation Research’s Master Faculty. His most popular book is
After the Flood which gives evidence for the historicity of Genesis 10 based on ancient, little known British and European genealogies. He published a series of books.. Read More
What About Love? - Apr. 3
When Bible-believing Christians take the Word of God and measure leaders, churches, denominations and movements by it, ecumenical types invariably charge them with a lack of love. For example, a woman wrote to me and said:
 “You preach separatism. What about unity? You preach about heresy. WHAT ABOUT LOVE? ... From what I have viewed on your website, you hold your views as high as the Bible itself. What you call ‘zeal for the Bible’ I call arrogance and pride. If you knew the Bible as well as you claim, then I believe you’d live it. The lost will never be reached through such hatred” (Letter from a reader, May 1997).
 This lady was upset about my preaching, but instead of explaining my alleged error from the Bible, she charged me with a lack of love, and this, in spite of her own incredibly judgmental attitude toward

Correspondence With a Missionary About Quick Prayerism - Apr. 2
The following is a series of communications with a young missionary that I have a lot of hope for. From my knowledge of how he has grown through the years and his eagerness to learn and his willingness to reject tradition and pragmatism when it contradicts God’s Word and his focus on raising a godly seed, I expect that he will do the solid, patient biblical work of building sound, life-changing, New Testament churches which are the pillar and ground of the truth in this dark world.
Note that this preacher doesn’t get offended at my biblical exhortation and reproof. That is an evidence of a spiritual and wise man, as we see emphasized in Proverbs, the book of practical wisdom. “He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth” (Proverbs 10:17). “Whoso loveth instruction loveth knowledge: but he that..Read More

SUPREME COURT REFUSES TO HEAR CASE OF TRANSGENDER CHILD REMOVED FROM PARENTS (Friday Church News Notes, March 29, 2024,, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Transgender child forcibly removed,” Premier Christian News, Mar. 21, 2024: “The US Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from a Catholic couple who lost custody of their child after refusing to acknowledge his self-identified female gender. The court did not provide a reason for its refusal to hear the case. ... Mary and Jeremy Cox, devout Catholics from Indiana, began legal proceedings after their teenage son informed them he identified as a girl. The couple’s Christian beliefs about gender and sexuality meant they could not agree to their son’s request of acceptance. ... In 2021.. Read More

Qumran Caves
The Dead Sea Scrolls - Mar. 28
(This edition of the report contains new information about the value of the Isaiah scroll b from Cave 1 as a witness to the Masoretic Hebrew text.)
 Following is a link to translations of the Dead Sea Scrolls -
I have been reading about the Dead Sea Scrolls for years, but my interest was piqued to a higher degree in 2010 after my first visit to two sites associated with them: the caves themselves and the museum at Qumran and the Shrine of the Book in Jerusalem where the first seven scrolls are housed.
 The scrolls were discovered between 1947 and 1956 in 11 caves near the northwest shore of the Dead Sea, 13 miles southeast of Jerusalem. The first cave contained..Read More
Water the Miracle Substance - Mar. 27
Where is the evidence of God? Everywhere!
 Consider water, a substance that in every aspect demonstrates intelligent design. It has been called “the miraculous molecule” even by secular scientists.
 Water covers 70% of the earth and makes up 70% of the human body.
 “This common, seemingly boring substance baffles and confuses anyone who peers at it for long enough” (“Water: the weirdest liquid on the planet,”
The Guardian, May 11, 2015).
 “Water is dynamic on Earth, continually evaporating, traveling over land, condensing, and flowing back to the seas. Water is dynamic in life, too, cycling between photosynthesis and respiration” (“Is Water Miraculous?”
Creation Evolution Headlines, Oct. 10, 2015).
 “Water behaves as if it doesn’t have to follow the standard rules of chemistry. ... No molecule besides water has these amazing properties” (Kenneth Poppe, Exposing..Read More
The History of Slavery - Mar. 26
Slavery has been practiced since the fall of man. It is not a product of “racism”; it is not an issue of skin color; it is a product of man’s sinful heart. The Lord Jesus Christ described man’s condition with perfect accuracy and uncovered the fundamental issue of slavery:
And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man” (Mark 7:20-23).
 When men believed the devil’s lie and chose sin over God, they became slaves, slaves not only to sin but slaves physically. History is filled with the sad accounts of men being enslaved by their fellow men and treated as mere cattle.. Read More

PORNOGRAPHY LEAVENING SOCIETY WITH VIOLENCE, DESTROYING PROPER MASCULINITY AND FEMININITY (Friday Church News Notes, March 22, 2024,, 866-295-4143) - There is no end to the moral corruption of fallen human nature. It is a bottomless pit of evil. Man’s heart is “desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9). Christ said, “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness” (Mark 7:20-22). Yet it is also true that man can guard the heart so that the inherent evil is kept under control. “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee..
