SOUTHERN BAPTIST PROFESSORS AND LEADERS PROMOTING “PROTESTANT UNITY” (Friday Church News Notes, September 22, 2017, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Several Southern Baptist professors and leaders are signatories to a new confession promoting broad Protestant unity. “A Reforming Catholic Confession: A ‘Mere Protestant’ Statement of Faith to Mark the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation” emphasizes “interdenominational unity in the essentials of the faith.” Two Southern...

Rob Bell's New God
     Rob Bell’s book Love Wins stirred up something of a hornet’s nest of controversy among “evangelicals” when it was published in 2011, which we found puzzling. The man had been denying eternal hell and teaching a universalistic faith for a long time.
    In a 2005 interview with Beliefnet, Bell said “the church must stop thinking about everybody primarily in categories of in or out, saved or not, believer or nonbeliever.”
    In his influential book Velvet Elvis, which is popular with a great many Southern Baptists, he described a wedding that he conducted for two pagan unbelievers who told him that “they didn’t want any Jesus or God or Bible or religion to be talked about” but they did want him to “make it really spiritual” (p. 76). Bell agreed with this ridiculous request and said that his pagan friends “are resonating with Jesus, whether they... Read More
The Treasury of Rare Dispensational Commentaries
     The Treasury of Rare Dispensational Commentaries is a collection of 100 rare old commentaries that are written from a Dispensational and Premillennial position.
    The majority of commentaries that are readily available today are Reformed and Amillennial. They interpret prophecy by the allegorical methodology and erroneously view the Church as Israel. Many of the best Dispensational and Premillennial commentaries are out of print.
    I decided to create this collection when I realized that very few Premillennial commentaries are available in electronic edition for the computer. As a missionary who lives overseas and travels extensively for Bible conferences and research, almost all of the... Read More

Lancaster Baptist Church’s Contemporary Fruit
    California is being populated with contemporary churches that are products of and spin-offs of Lancaster Baptist Church of Lancaster and the West Coast Baptist College that it operates. The same thing is happening in many other parts of North America and beyond. In fact, the reason we began warning about Lancaster a few years ago was that we had seen the fruit of its contemporary compromise in churches overseas.
    In many cases, the pastors of the contemporary churches are sons of Lancaster’s leaders, staff, and... Read More

EMERGING CHURCH PASTOR SAYS YOUNG PEOPLE NEED A CALLING, NOT RULES (Friday Church News Notes, September 15, 2017, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Steven Furtick of Elevation Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, says that what this generation needs is not more rules to live by, but a calling to live for (“Charlotte Pastor,” The Christian Post, Nov. 26, 2010). This is typical emerging church philosophy. In reality, what youth need is BOTH rules to live by and a call to real... Read More

Lessons From a Hurricane
    The Bible teaches us to learn spiritual and moral lessons from the creation, which was made, among other things, as a divine revelation (Psa. 19:1-3; Rom. 1:20). Everything is under God’s control. He upholds all things by the word of His power (Heb. 1:3). By Him all things consist (Col. 1:17). He “hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm” (Nahum 1:3).
    We need to look at life through the lens of Scripture and always be learning.
    Hurricane Irma hit mainland Florida on September 10. I am a native Floridian and I travel there to visit Mom (age 93) and other relatives as often as I can. I was scheduled to fly into Tampa on September 8 but cancelled the trip due to the approaching hurricane. Growing up in Florida, I experienced many hurricanes. As a nine year old, I was staying with my grandparents north of Lakeland when the eye of Donna came right over central Florida in 1960. It came ashore as a category 4 with sustained winds...

Christian Dress and 1 Timothy 2
    In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; but (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works” (1 Timothy 2:9-10).
    This is the key New Testament passage on female modesty. Note what it teaches us about the Christian... Read More
A Defense of 1 John 5:7
    1 John 5:7-8 in the King James Bible reads: “For there are three that bear record in heaven, THE FATHER, THE WORD, AND THE HOLY GHOST: AND THESE THREE ARE ONE. AND THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR WITNESS IN EARTH, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.”
    The capitalized words, called the Johannine Comma, are omitted in the modern Greek texts and English versions. (The term “comma” described “a group of words isolated as a single group.”)
    It would seem, in fact, that modern textual critics despise the traditional Trinitarian statement in 1 John 5:7-8 more than any other passage in the Received Text.
    Bruce Metzger called it “spurious” (The Text of the New Testament: Its Transmission, Corruption, and Restoration, p. 101). Kurt and Barbara Aland had no... Read More
