Angels - June 16

The Existence of Angels

The Origin of Angels
     1. They were created by Jesus Christ (Col. 1:16). They are made by God (Heb. 1:7).
     2. They were created before the world was made. They sang when God made the universe (Job 38:7).

Biblical Principles of Music- June 10
     The following study is a chapter from The Satanic Attack on Sacred Music - The Book, which is available as a free eBook from www.wayoflife.org. --
    
This is a study of what the Bible itself says about music. It is a study of every major passage that deals with music, with application to the New Testament church and modern times.
    Churches need to train the people in music so well that they can test it by biblical standards. They must be able to discern such things as soft rock, honky-tonk, dance rhythms, chords as used in CCM, and worldly vocal styles.
    It is not enough to publish a list of unacceptable music. Such lists are helpful, but any list will be obsolete in a short time. Further, no list is exhaustive.

MARK LEVIN’S WAY OR GOD’S WAY (Friday Church News Notes, June 4, 2021, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - I listened to Mark Levin’s radio broadcast last week and was reminded of two things. First, Levin is one of the most knowledgeable, clever, sincere, and passionate personalities in America’s conservative political movement. Second, other than sharing a love for America, we have radically different world views. I’m not criticizing Mr. Levin; I am thankful for the good he has done for America, he and every other “conservative.” I’m only singling him out.. Read More

Depression and the Child of God -
June 3

     Man is a complicated, tripartite being: body, soul, and spirit (1 Th. 5:23). There is heart, soul, and mind (Mt. 22:37). There is the spirit of the mind (Eph. 4:23). In his fallen condition in a fallen world, man is subject to a great number of afflictions that affect every aspect of his being.
    The field of psychology has been based on a humanistic view of man and God from its inception and cannot be reconciled with God’s Word.

Williams; PsychoHeresy: The Psychological Seduction of Christianity by Martin Bobgan; Manufacturing Victims: What the Psychology Industry Is Doing to People by Tana Dineen,)

Suggested Sacred Music Recordings - June 2
     The philosophy of music is changing rapidly among fundamental Baptist and other fundamentalist churches. It is becoming popular to “adapt” contemporary praise songs by selecting ones with Scriptural lyrics and toning down the rhythm. This is being done by Majesty Music, Soundforth, Bob Jones University and its president Steve Pettit, and West Coast Baptist College, for example. They excuse the practice in various ways, such as likening the use of contemporary praise to the use of a Lutheran or Methodist hymn, but it is a different thing altogether. While I.. Read More

John Straton and the Fundamentalist Warrior Spirit - May 27
     The following is excerpted from The History and Heritage of Fundamentalism and Fundamental Baptists, available from www.wayoflife.org -
    
“Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way” (Psalm 119:128).
    Even today, fighting is what sets “fundamentalists” apart from even the most conservative of evangelicals. The latter might wear gloves, but they are velvet ones. They might point out a theological disagreement with someone, but typically in gentle, intellectual, “let’s still be friends,” non-separatist terms. They aren’t warriors. They say that they esteem all of God’s precepts concerning all things to be right, like the Psalmist, but unlike the Psalmist, they don’t “hate every false way” (Ps. 119:128). To hate false ways is shocking to their sensibilities. It’s not their kind.. Read More

What the Bible Says About the Wicked - May 19
    The following is why dirty politics can never long prevail and why the righteous should not fret at the prosperity of the wicked. God’s people are to trust in their God and do good and wait for Him, for He is the King who ruleth over all. Those who cannot do this should not profess to have faith in Christ and should admit that they don’t really the Bible.
    “be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 32:23).

belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste” (Deuteronomy 32:35).

SADDLEBACK CHURCH ORDAINS THREE FEMALE PASTORS (Friday Church News Notes, May 14, 2021, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - “Saddleback Church, pastored by Rick Warren, announced on Instagram that it has ordained three female pastors. “Yesterday was a historic night for Saddleback Church in many ways! We ordained our first three women pastors, Liz Puffer, Cynthia Petty, and Katie Edwards” (May 7, 2021). Saddleback Church is the second largest in the Southern Baptist Convention. Called by Christianity Today “America’s most influential pastor,” Rick Warren’s influence is vast. It reaches into every sphere of Christianity, from Catholicism to Mormonism to liberal Protestantism to evangelicalism to fundamental Baptist. Bruce Ryskamp, president of Zondervan, said, “The Purpose Driven Life is more than a bestseller; it’s become a movement.” Warren has been called “America’s pastor,” and it is for good reason.

Israel, Egypt, and Archaeology - May 13
     Many archaeologists today claim that no evidence exists for the biblical events that took place in Egypt. For example, in The Bible Unearthed, Israel Jewish scholars Finkelstein and Neil Silberman claim that the Exodus and Joshua’s conquest of Canaan never happened.
    Following are some of the reasons why this does not shake our faith in God and His Word:
    
1. Bible critics have repeatedly been proven wrong and the Bible proven right.
    Bible critics have been proven wrong repeatedly, whereas the Bible has been confirmed right repeatedly.
    For example, in 1869, Hermann Schultz said, “The time, of which the pre-Mosaic narrations treat, is a sufficient proof of their legendary character. It was a time prior to all knowledge of writing” (
Old Testament Theology). Secular archaeologists.. Read More

Evidence of Systemic Racism in America - May 11
     Black Lives Matter and others claim that there is “systemic racism” in America. Indeed, the evidence can be seen everywhere. Consider some examples:
    America liberated all black slaves in 1865, and the federal government under a Republican majority set out to empower blacks with the same civil rights enjoyed by others.
    The Thirteenth Amendment abolishing slavery passed with the support of 100% of Republicans and 23% of Democrats. This shows that a large number of white people in America cared for the rights of black people and wanted to help them. A great many whites gave their lives for this cause, both before, during, and after the war.
    In 1866, Republicans in Congress passed the Fourteenth Amendment granting citizenship to former slaves and equal protection under the law. Under President Ulysses Grant (1868-1876), Republicans, backed by federal troops, sought to..
