Friday Church News Notes

MORE PREPARATIONS FOR THE THIRD TEMPLE (Friday Church News Notes, December 7, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The preparation for the building of the Third Temple is reaching fever pitch. On December 10, the last evening of Hanukkah, the “nascent” Jewish Sanhedrin is planning to consecrate a stone sacrificial altar and perform the daily offering that occurred every morning and evening in the ancient temple. The sacrifice will be enacted by Kohanim (Levites) dressed in biblical priestly attire. It is not known whether the lamb will actually be sacrificed at the site, but meat will be roasted on the altar. The Temple Institute’s golden menorah will also be lit. The Sanhedrin was a council of rabbis who led the Israelites before and after the destruction of Herod’s Temple. It ceased to function in the fifth century AD, but in 2004 a group of orthodox Jewish groups announced that they were re-establishing it. The “nascent”.. Read More

America a Christian Nation?

     America is a nation deeply influenced by Christianity and the Bible, but this does not add up to a “Christian nation.”
     I love American history and have read hundreds of books directly bearing on this subject, including many dozens of biographies of America’s most influential early leaders as well as more recent ones.

Study the Bible Dispensationally

    One of the things that I am most thankful for in my Bible education is having been taught the importance of a normal-literal method of interpretation. I still fondly recall how that this opened up the Scriptures to me in a wonderful way when I was a young Christian. I didn’t accept it blindly. I had filled my mind and heart with Scripture before I went to Bible School, and I had learned to test all things by it. I was trusting in promises such as John 7:17 and 8:31-32, and the normal-literal method of interpretation rang true to me as soon as I heard it. I knew that it was the truth, and I sensed that it was a very important truth.
    I believe that a consistent application of the literal method of interpretation will result in a dispensational theology. We agree with the following statement by Charles Ryrie: “If plain or normal interpretation is the only valid hermeneutical principle and if it is consistently applied, it will cause one to be a dispensationalist. As basic as one believes normal... Read More

Christian Inventor R.G. Letourneau

    The following is based on the fascinating book Mover of Men and Mountains, the autobiography of R.G. LeTourneau (Moody Press, 1967).
    Robert G. LeTourneau (1888-1969) was a business magnate, philanthropist, and inventor who held nearly 300 patents.
    Known as “the dean of earthmoving,” LeTourneau is considered “to have been the world’s greatest inventor of earthmoving and materials handling equipment.” LeTourneau had a natural genius for engineering. Machines designed and built by LeTourneau represented nearly 70% of the earthmoving equipment and engineering vehicles used by the Allied forces during World War II. His earthmoving... Read More

Bible Commentaries and Twittering Swallows

     TWO COMMON PROBLEMS IN USING COMMENTARIES:
    1. Leaning on them too much.
    The Bible student should first go to the Bible and dig out as much meaning as possible for himself. For this, he must get a good understanding of how to interpret the Bible. The equivalent of a Bible Institute education is the starting point to be able to use commentaries effectually and test them properly so as not to be led astray by any error that might be present. We deal with this in the course The Effectual Bible Student, which is available as a free eVideo.. Read More
The Bible Knowledge Test

The Bible Knowledge Test

     We are pleased to announce the publication of The Bible Knowledge Test in print and as a free eBook download.
    The Bible Knowledge Test is designed to challenge God’s people as individuals and as churches about their level of Bible knowledge.
    From 45 years of experience, I have concluded that though Bible believers love the Bible as God’s Word, oftentimes they remain ignorant of it. They might read it from time to time. They might even read it regularly, but they don’t understand it very well, because they aren’t Bible students and they lack the necessary training and tools for effectual study.
    Having preached in more than 550 churches in 49 states and more than two dozen countries, I have observed that a great many church members are not serious... Read More

FACEBOOK: A SURVEILLANCE MACHINE THAT IS BEING WEAPONIZED (Friday Church News Notes, November 23, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “The Facebook Dilemma,” part one, Frontline PBS, Oct. 29, 2018: “Zeynep Tufekci, of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, observes, ‘What Facebook does is profile you. If you are on Facebook, it is collecting everything you do. If you are off Facebook, it is using tracking pixels to collect what you are browsing. And for its micro-targeting to work, for its business model to work, it has to remain a surveillance machine.’ From 2012-2015, Rand Waltzman and his colleagues at the U.S. Department of Defense published more than 200 academic papers and reports about..

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
