Zeal for the Truth and Bible Separation

    The following is excerpted from the book Bible Separation, available in print and eBook editions from Way of Life Literature.
    “Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way” (Psalms 119:128).
    “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 3).
    It is not enough to know the truth; we must have a zeal for it. We must be passionate about it. We must be willing to earnestly contend for it (Jude 3), and this zeal comes by loving the God of the Bible and having a passion to please Him.
    This zeal produces a love for everything taught in God’s Word and a passion to stand against error... Read More

Friday Church News Notes

FACEBOOK: THE DEVIL’S MIXING BOWL (Friday Church News Notes, November 16, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Facebook is a two-edged sword. On one hand, it has benefits such as advertising churches and legitimately keeping touch with friends. On the other hand, it is one of the greatest tools of the devil to foster spiritual compromise. It has great potential to corrupt through evil communications (1 Corinthians 15:33). Facebook is the devil’s mixing bowl. It tends to mix everything together, the holy and the unholy, the spiritual and the worldly. The following observation is from Brian Snider, “Most people in our circles do not have the discernment, discretion or courage to stand against things that are wrong. For instance, when someone leaves a good church and goes down a worldly or wicked road, many people continue to remain friends with them and ‘Like’ everything they do. They will approve.. Read More

Mary's Song

    The following is excerpted from Woman and Her Service to God, a training course available from Way of Life Literature.
Luke 1:46-55    
    This is the hymn of a woman. It flows from a woman’s heart. It is recorded in Scripture because it pleased God. Mary honored God, and God honored Mary.
    This song is permeated with exaltation of God and humility of spirit.
    The language is so exalted, so simple yet powerful, so instructive, so interesting, so perfectly fitted to its exalted subject.
    It is obvious that Mary was full of God’s Word, the Scriptures.
    Again the saintly women of Israel were literate and educated in the Scriptures. This is in contrast to the women of most ancient pagan nations. .. Read More

    “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper” (Psalm 1:1-3).
    If there is one thing we can do to strengthen the churches it is to seriously strengthen the biblical depth of the congregation. “For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age.. Read More

The Willful Skepticism of the Last Days

    “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: 7 But the heavens and..

THE DEVIL LIVES IN OUR PHONES (Friday Church News Notes, November 9, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “A Dark Consensus about Screens,” New York Times, Oct. 26, 2018: “Technologists know how phones really work, and many have decided they don’t want their own children anywhere near them. A wariness that has been slowly brewing is turning into a regionwide consensus: The benefits of screens as a learning tool are overblown, and the risks for addiction and stunting development seem high. The debate in Silicon Valley now is about how much exposure to phones is O.K. ‘Doing no screen time is almost easier than doing a little,’ said Kristin Stecher, a former social computing researcher married to a Facebook engineer. ‘If my kids..

Innocent Blood

     The following by Millard Posthuma, M.D. (1916-2009) is tract #345 published by The Tract League:
     It has often been said that until it can be determined when the soul joins the body of a new baby, abortion cannot be called murder.
     This, however, is not the main concern of the Bible. The key phrase of Scripture is found in Genesis 9:4 where we read “the life thereof, which is the blood thereof...” That phrase is the basis for many other passages that equate blood with life and that call the shedding of blood sin.
     What relation does this verse have to the problem of abortion? Just this: that every fetus has its own blood, and the shedding of that blood is as surely the taking of life as it would be any other circumstance.
     Before the fetus is three weeks old, it has a beating heart. Also, its primitive vessels and blood are in the process of developing continuously throughout the .. Read More

Independent Baptist Pragmatism

    Pragmatism is “a reasonable and logical way of doing things or of thinking about problems that is based on dealing with specific situations instead of on ideas and theories” (Merriam-Webster).
    Pragmatism is “the quality of dealing with a problem in a sensible way that suits the conditions that.. Read More

Deborah's Song

     The following is excerpted from Woman and Her Service to God, a training course available from Way of Life Literature.
    Judges 5
    An entire chapter of the Bible is devoted to Deborah’s song. At least another 25 verses are devoted to songs and prayers by women: Miriam’s song (Ex. 15:20-21), Hannah’s praise (1 Sa. 2:1-10), Elizabeth’s praise (Lu. 1:41-45), and Mary’s praise (Lu. 1:46-55).
    Deborah’s song is magnificent even when considered from a literary standpoint only. The simplicity of the words, mostly one syllable, creates power. The repetition imparts passion and vehemence -- “Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I, will sing unto the LORD; I will sing praise to the LORD God of Israel. ... Awake, awake, Deborah; awake, awake, utter a song... At her feet he bowed, he fell, he lay down: at her feet he bowed, he.. Read More

PREPARATIONS FOR THIRD TEMPLE “IN FULL SWING” (Friday Church News Notes, November 2, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - A report on this month’s Israel Today magazine says, “Preparations for the Third Temple are in full swing.” During the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), Levites in white robes drew water from the ancient Pool of Siloam to perform the Talmudic tradition of “Pouring of the Water.” The ceremony is called “Simchat Beit HaShoeva” (“Rejoicing at the place of the drawing of the water”) and is based on the prophecy of Isaiah 12:3, “Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of..
