Frequent pot smokers are more than twice as likely to suffer a stroke compared with those who don't partake, the first study found. They’re also more likely to be hospitalized for a dangerously erratic heart rhythm, according to the second study. Both studies are to be presented at an upcoming meeting of the American Heart Association (AHA).. Read More

A Regenerate Church Membership

     The following is excerpted from The Discipling Church: The Church That Will Stand until Christ Comes, available as a free eBook from www.wayoflife.org. A softcover book edition is also available.
    
A regenerate church membership is an ancient Baptist principle based on clear biblical teaching, and it was practiced by most Baptist churches in America until the beginning of the 20th century.
    The Somerset Confession of 1656 stated,
    “In admitting of members into the church of Christ, it is the duty of the church, and ministers whom it concerns, in faithfulness to God, that they be careful they receive none but such as do make forth evident demonstration of the new birth, and the work of faith with power.”

Charles Wesley
(Portrait by John Russell)

Charles Wesley’s Unwise Child Training

     Charles Wesley, who together with his brother John founded the Methodist denomination, was a brilliant but pious musician. He wrote an incredible 6,500 hymns, many of which are still sung around the world in a multitude of languages. He has been called “the hymn-writer of all ages.”
    He married Sarah Gwynne and their happy union produced eight children, only three of whom survived infancy. These were Sarah, Charles Jr., and Samuel.
    Charles and Samuel were musical prodigies. By age eight, Samuel was composing complex musical scores. He was even called the “English Mozart”
    Charles showed them off on tours. He sent them to live with unbelievers and weak Christians to be trained, ignoring God’s warning in 1 Corinthians 15:33, “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” He also ignored his brother John’s

The Heresy That 1 John 1:9 Is for Unbelievers

     There is a heresy that 1 John 1:9 is for the unbeliever because the believer supposedly cannot be out of fellowship with God.
    This is taught, for example, by Guided By Truth Ministries. “For the believer, verbally ‘confessing’ our sins through prayer does not cause us to be forgiven. We may ask God to forgive us but He has told us through His word that He
already has. We can.. Read More

Correspondence With a Missionary About Quick Prayerism

     The following is a series of communications with a young missionary that I have a lot of hope for. From my knowledge of how he has grown through the years and his eagerness to learn and his willingness to reject tradition and pragmatism when it contradicts God’s Word and his focus on raising a godly seed, I am expecting that he will do the solid, patient biblical work of building sound, life-changing, New Testament churches which are the pillar and ground of the truth in this dark world.
    
Note that this preacher doesn’t get offended at my biblical exhortation and reproof. That is an evidence of a spiritual and wise man, as we see emphasized in Proverbs, the book of practical wisdom. “He is...Read More

Modern Heresies About Homosexuality

     The rapidly growing global acceptance of homosexuality is a sign of the end times. Sodom is mentioned four times in reference to end times (Lu. 17:28-32; 2 Pe. 2:6; Jude 7; Re. 11:8). See Gen. 19:4-7. The spirit of homosexuality has swept the world in my very lifetime. In the 21st century, same-sex “marriage” has been legalized in 28 nations. It is promoted by major global corporations, such as Microsoft, Apple, Starbucks, and Google. Massive “Gay Pride” parades are held throughout the earth, including one of the largest in Tel Aviv, Israel.
    Not surprisingly in light of widespread apostasy, this acceptance has infiltrated Christianity in a big way.
    
On one hand, there is the full-on acceptance of homosexuality, including same-sex “marriage.”
    This position is represented by the Metropolitan Community Churches, founded in 1968 by a homosexual “priest” named Troy Perry. It has 222.

Beth Moore

Friday Church News Notes

JOHN MACARTHUR TELLS THE FEMALE PREACHER BETH MOORE TO “GO HOME” (Friday Church News Notes, November 1, 2019, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - At a Truth Matters Conference at his Grace Community Church, October 16-18, 2019, John MacArthur was asked at a Q&A session about Beth Moore. MacArthur answered with two words, “go home.” He followed this with, “There is no case that can be made biblically for a woman preacher. Period. Paragraph. End of discussion. ... I think this is feminism gone to church. This is why we can’t let the culture exegete the Bible.” That is biblical exhortation, 100%, and MacArthur will certainly not regret it at the judgment seat of Christ. While we can’t accept MacArthur’s Reformed theology, we very much appreciate outspoken preachers in this cowardly era. And he said.. Read More

Franklin Graham's Unscriptural Ecumenism

    Franklin Graham is following closely in his famous father’s footsteps, which, sadly, have led further from the Bible with each passing decade. In 1996, Franklin was named the first vice-chairman of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association; in 2000, CEO, and in 2001, president. Billy Graham died in 2018.
    Franklin Graham told the
Indianapolis Star that his father’s ecumenical alliance with the Catholic Church and all other denominations “was one of the smartest things his father ever did” (“Keeping it simple, safe keeps Graham on high,” The Indianapolis Star, Thurs., June 3, 1999, p. H2).
    He said: “In the early years, up in Boston, the Catholic church got behind my father’s crusade. That was a first. It took back many Protestants. They didn’t know how to handle it. But it set the example. ‘If Billy Graham is willing to work with everybody.

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, particularly in the Philippines.
