The following is by the late Harry Ironside, from his commentary on John’s First Epistle.

If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world” (1 John 1:10; 2:1-2).

“I remember last summer I was rather amused listening to an address. The speaker was telling of a little girl who had been left by her parents with another family while they were away, and when at last the mother and father returned for her and she was on her way home, she said to
her father: "Daddy, there are four little boys at that house where I have been staying."
   "Yes, I knew that," he said.
   "Daddy, they have family worship there every night."
   "I'm glad to hear that."
   "Daddy, every night their father prays for those four little boys."
   "That is very nice."
   "He prays, Daddy, that God will make them good boys, and that they won't do anything naughty," said the little one.
   "That is very nice."
   She was silent a moment and then said, "But, Daddy, He hasn't done it yet."

There are a great many folk like that. We are praying that God will make us good, that God will make us holy, that our lives may be lives of victory, but I am afraid that many  of us have to  confess that  "God hasn't done it yet." We recognize the fact that we fail. Our hearts are nearly broken by our failures.

Sharing Policy: Much of our material is available for free, such as the hundreds of articles at the Way of Life web site. Other items we sell to help fund our expensive literature and foreign church planting ministries. Way of Life's content falls into two categories: sharable and non-sharable. Things that we encourage you to share include the audio sermons, O Timothy magazine, FBIS articles, and the free eVideos and free eBooks. You are welcome to make copies of these at your own expense and share them with friends and family, but they cannot be posted to web sites. You are also welcome to use excerpts from the articles in your writings, in sermons, in church bulletins, etc. All we ask is that you give proper credit. Things we do not want copied and distributed freely are items like the Fundamental Baptist Digital Library, print editions of our books, electronic editions of the books that we sell, the videos that we sell, etc. The items have taken years to produce at enormous expense in time and money, and we use the income from sales to help fund the ministry. We trust that your Christian honesty will preserve the integrity of this policy. "For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward" (1 Timothy 5:18).

Goal:Distributed by Way of Life Literature Inc., the Fundamental Baptist Information Service is an e-mail posting for Bible-believing Christians. Established in 1974, Way of Life Literature is a fundamental Baptist preaching and publishing ministry based in Bethel Baptist Church, London, Ontario, of which Wilbert Unger is the founding Pastor. Brother Cloud lives in South Asia where he has been a church planting missionary since 1979. Our primary goal with the FBIS is to provide material to assist preachers in the edification and protection of the churches.

Offering: We take up a quarterly offering to fund this ministry, and those who use the materials are expected to participate (Galatians 6:6) if they can. We do not solicit funds from those who do not agree with our preaching and who are not helped by these publications. We seek offerings only from those who are helped. OFFERINGS can be mailed or made online with with Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or Paypal. For information see: www.wayoflife.org/about/makeanoffering.html.
