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. He is so shallow in his teaching, so positive in his approach, so slighting of .. Read More
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..

What in the World Has Happened to America? - May 6
    Many are truly and fundamentally shocked at what is happening in America, and it is shocking, but what we are seeing today is the product of a long process of apostasy (for lack of a better word). It is a process of incremental wickedness. It is a warning not to overlook “little” sins and “little” heresies and “little” crimes.
    The destruction of America is like the life cycle of ivy. First it sleeps, then it creeps, finally it leaps.
    In the 19th century, destruction was sleeping, as the seeds were being sown through the dawning of theological modernism, Unitarianism, Darwinian evolution, Marxism, and Freudianism. By the 20th century, destruction was creeping. Now in the..

Preach the Word With Reproof and Rebuke - May 5
    The following is excerpted from Feed the Flock: Expository Bible Preaching, available from www.wayoflife.org -
    
Preach with reproof and rebuke (2 Ti. 4:2).
    - “Reproof” is the Greek elegcho, which means confute, admonish, refute, expose. It is elsewhere translated “convict” (Jn. 8:9), “convince” (Jn. 8:46), “tell a fault” (Mat. 18:15). It means to show people their wrong ways and to convince them of the right way of God’s Word.
    - This is a difficult task, because human nature does not like to be told that it is wrong. The natural response to reproof is to become offended and to attack the..

The Age of Apostasy - Apr. 29
     The following is excerpted from Spiritual Safety in the Facebook Age
    On one hand, the enemies of God’s people are the same as they ever were: the world, the flesh, and the devil.
    The flesh hasn’t changed since man’s fall. Adam’s character was corrupted by the fall and he passed that along to his offspring. It is called “the old man” in Scripture. For the born again child of God, the old man is crucified with Christ (Ro. 6:6; Col. 3:9), but it is also still present and must be dealt with on a daily basis (Eph. 4:22-24).
    The devil hasn’t changed. He is the enemy of God.. Read More
Isn’t the King James Bible Too Difficult to Understand? - Apr. 28
     The following is adapted from THE BIBLE VERSION QUESTION-ANSWER DATABASE, available from Way of Life Literature.
    It is widely believed that the King James Bible is too antiquated and difficult to understand for the 21st century, but the following points need to be taken into consideration:
    1. THE KJV DOES HAVE SOME ANTIQUATED WORDS AND FORMS OF SPEECH, BUT THERE ARE NOT TOO MANY OF THESE.
    The Trinitarian Bible Society publishes a list of 618 antiquated words. It is called
Bible Word List. Most of these can be understood by considering the context. There are only about two hundred words in the KJV that have become so antiquated that they have changed meanings or have dropped entirely out of common usage, so that you really need a dictionary to understand them.
    David Norris, author of
The Big Picture: The Authority and Integrity of the Authentic Word of God, observes, “With respect to genuinely archaic words, their actual number.. Read More

They include no phones until the summer before high school, no screens in bedrooms, network-level content blocking, no iPads at all, and screen time schedules enforced by Google Wifi that he controls from his phone. Bad behavior? The child goes offline for 24 hours (“A Dark Consensus about Screens,” New York Times, Oct. 26, 2018). He says, “Rule No. 1 is there are no screens in the bedroom. Period. Ever.

MORE EVIDENCE OF AMERICA’S SYSTEMIC WHITE RACISM (Friday Church News Notes, April 23, 2021, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Critical Race Theory claims that America is racist to the core, and the evidence keeps piling up. Kamala Harris is the nation’s first black vice president, and Linda Thomas-Greenfield, newly appointed American ambassador to the United Nations, is a black woman. Thomas-Greenfield recently told Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) that “the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.” There can be no doubt that a black woman becoming an American ambassador is clear evidence of the nation’s systemic racism. Consider further evidence.. Read More
Testimonies About the Bible - Apr. 22
    “Bible reading is an education in itself” (Lord Alfred Tennyson).
    “The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian” (A.W. Tozer).
    “Of the Divine character of the Bible, I think no man who deals honestly with his own mind can entertain a reasonable doubt that it is indeed the Word of God” (Simon Greenleaf, Royal Dane Professor of Law at Harvard University).
    “Christianity offers many infallible proofs that, that which is received by faith is proved by evidence and logic incorporating salvation and heaven as opposed to doom and hell. The Bible is made up of the Old Testament plus the New Testament. The Holy Bible is..
