WRESTLING AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD (Friday Church News Notes, September 17, 2021, www.wayoflife.org firstname.lastname@example.org, 866-295-4143) - The Bible says that God’s people do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but a great number of professing Christians are doing just that. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:12-13). The apostle Paul, who wrote this under divine inspiration, modeled.. Read More
The Keswick holiness teaching had a large influence within Fundamentalism.
Keswick Holiness gets its name from Bible conferences held at Keswick in northwestern England.
The meetings were preceded by the rapidly spreading holiness movement in America and England.
Keswick doctrine was influenced by Methodist “entire sanctification.” John Wesley taught that the believer can experience “a total death to sin, and an entire renewal in love, and image of God” so that “they are now in such a sense perfect, as not to commit sin, and to be freed from evil thoughts and tempers” (A Plain Account of Christian Perfection..

Recently someone raised the following question:
“I just wanted to write you about Strong’s concordance. To my understanding, you as well as many other baptists have used Strong’s concordance with great benefit, while other baptists often condemn it. I’m in no way trying to bash you or other baptists for using it, I simply want to know the truth, and your personal opinion on these several presumably disturbing facts.
“According to my The New Strong’s Expanded Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, a 2010.. Read More
“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God” (2 Corinthians 6:14 7:1).
The theme of Paul Corinthian epistles is correction of a carnal church, and one of the cures for carnality is separation from sin .. Read More

1 Corinthians 15:50-58 - “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed.. Read More

In Calvinistic theology, God’s omnipotence is called “sovereignty,” which is defined as God foreordaining all things. According to Calvinism, God has eternally decreed everything that will happen, including man’s fall and who will be saved and who will not be saved. According to this doctrine, if man has a choice in these matters, God is not “sovereign.” Consider some statements on this from the writings of prominent Calvinists:
“The Sovereignty of God over all, and his independency, clearly shew, that whatever is done in time is according to his decrees in eternity” (John Gill, A Body of Doctrinal and Practical Divinity, p. 173).
“God predestinated all... Read More
