Exchanging Religion for a Relationship

Exchanging Religion for a Relationship

Mike Gendron

 

[Note: The numbers in parenthesis refer to paragraph numbers in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Ignatius Press, 1994.]

Ever since man first sinned before our holy and righteous God, he has been trying to cover his guilt and become acceptable to God through his own effort. Adam and Eve attempted to cover their sin by sewing fig leaves together. However God demonstrated to them…

Roman Authority

Roman Authority

James McCarthy

 

  

Growing Challenges

Though submission to Rome is at the heart of what it means to be a Roman Catholic, the Church is nonetheless finding it difficult to keep its increasingly feisty flock in line. As never before, educated Catholics living in free and pluralistic societies are questioning Rome’s teaching on a variety of topics: artificial contraception, divorce, reception of the…

The Roots of Catholic/Evangelical "Unity"

The Roots of Catholic/Evangelical "Unity"

Dave Hunt

 

 

The recent stunning events in Eastern Europe have probably moved the world closer to the "peace" that precedes Antichrist's rise to power. The partnership between Gorbachev and the Pope could play an important role. When the world imagines it has achieved "peace and safety," sudden destruction will come (1 Thess 5:3). A powerful spiritual "peace" delusion seems to be gathering…

Do You Know Mary?

Do You Know Mary?

Carl Knott

 

 

I wonder, do you know the Mary of Mary’s Well, in Nazareth, Israel, and of the Gospels? She was a very special woman, blessed by God, and occupies a unique place in history. There has never been another woman just like her. She is an example to all women of purity, humility, faith and obedience. But I’d like you to notice some things that the Rosary says about Mary:

  • Holy Mary, pray for…

Mary Who?

Mary Who?

T. A. McMahon

 

 

A few months ago I was asked by Grizzly Adams Productions/PAX Television Network to appear in a documentary with the tentative title "The Mystery of Fatima." For those not familiar with the subject, it is claimed that in 1917, Mary, the mother of Jesus, appeared to three young shepherd children in the rugged hills a few miles west of Fatima, Portugal, giving them secret messages to be revealed at a later date. Growing…

Hail Mary?

Hail Mary?

Greg Durel

 

The prayer life of the Roman Catholic is quite different from the Bible believing Christian. The predominant prayer in the life of almost any catholic is the "Hail Mary." It goes like this: "HAIL MARY FULL OF GRACE, THE LORD IS WITH THEE. BLESSED ART THOU AMONG WOMEN AND BLESSED IS THE FRUIT OF THY WOMB, JESUS. HOLY MARY, MOTHER OF GOD, PRAY FOR US SINNERS, NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH. AMEN." The statements made in…

Is the One True Church Roman Catholic?

 

Is the One True Church Roman Catholic?

Mike Gendron

 

 

Is there only one true church? And if there is, can we identify it? Does it have marks by which it can be known? These questions often create quite a controversy but God answers them objectively and clearly in His Holy Word. The true church is not a denomination or a building or a cathedral. Locally, it is an assembly of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. Universally, it…

Is The Roman Catholic Church Polytheistic?

Is The Roman Catholic Church Polytheistic?

Greg Durel

 

POLYTHEISTIC   is a very harsh label to place   on any professing Christian religion. One who is polytheistic is one who   believes that there are many "gods." For example, "Jehovah’s   witnesses" believe that Jesus is a mighty god and Jehovah is the   almighty God. Any way…

Should All Christians Unite with Catholics?



Should All Christians Unite with Catholics?

Mike Gendron

 

Since the dawn of the new millennium we are witnessing the greatest push toward ecumenical unity the world has ever seen. The Roman Catholic Church is fervently building bridges to all Christian denominations. Through the dedicated efforts of Pope John Paul II, the Vatican is urging all professing Christians to return home to Rome. Dialogues and accords have been initiated and…

Catholicism

Catholicism

Dave Hunt

 

I have just read a disturbing book, Evangelical Catholics, by Keith A. Fournier—disturbing because it presents a tragically mistaken thesis that will lead many astray. Fournier seems to be a born-again Christian who claims to be both fully evangelical and fully Catholic. The book is a plea for Protestants to join Catholics in a joint evangelization effort. While admitting that "genuine and…

Five of the Most Difficult Challenges for Pastors

Five of the Most Difficult Challenges for Pastors

By Thom Rainer

 

 

Responses from pastors to the question: What specific part of being a pastor is the most difficult for you?

It may be one of the most difficult jobs in the world. Indeed, it may be an impossible job to do in our own strength.

I know. Before I was LifeWay’s president or a seminary dean, I served as pastor of four churches.

I know. I…

Why Leaders Can't Afford to be Easily Offended

Why Leaders Can't Afford to be Easily Offended

By Michael Hyatt

 

As a leader, you are going to draw fire. People will criticize you. Some will second-guess your decisions. Others will impute motives that aren't there. A few will falsely accuse you.

For example, just a few weeks ago, someone wrote a blog post publicly calling me a hypocrite. I won't lie; it stung. I was tempted to respond in kind. Thankfully, I didn't.

But that…

Seven Deadly Sins in the Pulpit

Seven Deadly Sins in the Pulpit

By Steve Murrell

 

These shortcomings can render your preaching ineffective. Do you have any?

It is increasingly common today to hear parts of the gospel proclaimed. The same was happening in the early church. In Acts 20:26,27 Paul says to the Ephesian church elders, "I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of any of you. For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God."…

Origin and Duration of the Sabbath Law

Origin and Duration of the Sabbath Law

 

Problem:

                       

S.D.A.'s argue that the sabbath law was given to Adam and Eve and is eternally binding on all believers. The argument is stated as follows:

"But the Decalogue, sealed with the lip and finger of God, was lifted above all Jewish rites and ceremonies. This is evident from the fact that the Sabbath was established before man sinned, and…

Seeing Prayers Answered in Turbulent Times

 

Seeing Prayers Answered in Turbulent Times

 

It's sad to say, but far too many Christians live burdened down by the negative influence of the world. They accept failure too readily, because they have allowed their faith to become weak and their spirits to grow faint from the negativity around them. Of course, it would be foolish to deny that we live in a negative world. We live in a world full of trouble. Real problems exist everywhere. So…
