STUDENTS PROTEST LIBERTY UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT’S STATEMENT THAT HE WILL RAISE HIS GRANDDAUGHTER AS A GIRL - Liberty University has long been on a slippery slide of compromise that began under founder Jerry Falwell’s leadership. His compromise started with small steps, as it always does, but the Word of God warns that “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” (1 Co. 5:6; Gal. 5:9). The latest evidence of the school’s spiritual decline came last week with the protest by some 30 students of the president’s announcement that he and his wife are raising their granddaughter “as a girl.” Speaking to a..

One-on-One Discipleship Program

     The One Year Discipleship course can be used as a discipleship program in churches, whereby more mature church members teach others.
     For this purpose, it’s not necessary to go through the entire course. Some of the lessons can be selected for the purpose of one-on-one discipling, and the student can then go through the rest of the course by himself. Each student should have his own copy of the discipleship course.
     We recommend using the following 14 lessons for the one-on-one discipling:
     Repentance
     Saving Faith
     The Gospel
     Evidence of Salvation.. Read More

A Private Prayer Language?

     Pentecostals and Charismatics often teach that there are two types of tongues described in the New Testament: the “public language tongues” of Pentecost and the “private prayer” tongues of 1 Corinthians 14:4 -- “He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church.” Some call this distinction “ministry tongues” and “devotional tongues.”
    Early Pentecostal leaders understood that biblical tongues were real earthly languages. They even thought they would be able to go to foreign mission fields and witness through miraculous tongues without having to learn the languages. Those who attempted this, though, returned bitterly disappointed!
    “Alfred G. Garr and his wife went to the Far East with the conviction that they could preach the gospel in 'the Indian and Chinese languages.’ Lucy Farrow went to Africa and returned after seven months during which she was alleged to.. Read More

The Modest Woman vs. The Strange Woman

    Consider some of the contrasts between the strange woman described in Proverbs 7:7-23 and the modest woman:
    They are different in where they go. The strange woman is not afraid of going out “in the black and dark night” (Pr. 7:9). Her “feet abide not in her house; now is she without, now in the streets” (Pr. 7:11-12). The modest woman, on the other hand, is cautious about where she goes and when she goes and with whom she goes; she avoids going to places where moral temptations lurk; she avoids being alone with men other than her husband and brothers; she avoids situations that could place her in the way of moral harm. The modern pop culture would applaud the strange woman as “liberated,” but the liberty to do evil is actually enslavement.
    They are different in their attire (Pr. 7:10). The immoral woman has “the attire of an harlot”--skimpy, tight, suggestive--to draw attention to herself sexually and to lure men to her on that basis. The modest woman, on the other hand, is clothed in such a way so as NOT to draw men’s attention to her in a sexual manner.. Read More

BIBLE GOING TO THE MOON ON ISRAEL’S SPACECRAFT (Friday Church News Notes, March 15, 2019, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - A digital copy of the Bible is on the way to the moon on Israel’s first lunar landing spacecraft. Called Beresheet (Genesis), the craft was launched from Cape Canaveral in Florida on February 21 and is scheduled to land on the moon on April 11. The lander was built by SpaceIL, a private Israeli company, and was launched by SpaceX, a private American company. On March 6, the spacecraft took a “selfie” with the round earth in the background. In the foreground is a sign that says, “Small country, big dreams.” (Yes, Flat Earthers, Beresheet is yet another myth. SpaceIL.. Read More

Snare Drum

Why Are You Opposed to Drums?

    We are not opposed to drums or any other musical instrument; we are opposed to the use of drums in a wrong way.
    A drum or an electric guitar or an electronic keyboard is not evil or wrong in itself.
    
First of all, we are opposed to the use of drums to produce rhythms that are sensual or sexual in nature.
    The Bible says that this world is fallen and is under the dominion of sinful men and demons, and God’s people are to separate from the evil things of this world. The Bible makes a sharp distinction between the holy and the profane (Ezek. 22:26), between God and..

Test of a Pastor

Test of a Pastor’s Calling

     We find a number of tests of a pastor’s calling in Scripture. These can help a man determine if God is calling him to be a pastor, and these can help churches to examine men before ordination.
    1. The test of desire (1 Timothy 3:1)
    1 Timothy 3:1 (“If a man desire the office”).. Read More
