“Standing Fast” for Freedom

A few months ago I wrote an article titled True Freedom in which I presented the only true freedom there is, the freedom Jesus Christ gives.

“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” – Gal. 5:1 (NASB)

“Members of the North Stanly High School squad posed for photos with the “Trump 2020: Make America Great Again” flag at an Aug. 30 game on “American Night” — in which students were encouraged to dress patriotically, the Stanly News & Press reported.”

True Freedom

Featured Image -- 16220In this time of political elections the various parties are falling all over themselves to promise more freedom and free things to the voters but, what is the essence of true freedom? I think Scripture has the clearest answer to this question. Paul wrote to the Galatians –

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” – Gal. 5:1 (NASB)

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” – Gal. 5:1 (KJV)

The King James translation has it “Stand fast” in other words we have to struggle and fight to maintain the freedom Christ gave us on the cross. So what do we have to struggle and fight against?  Continue reading

The Need for Truth

When I was actively pastoring, I was often criticized for spending too much time on the subject of prophesy but, that was not true, and I have the tapes to prove it. I offer the following article for two reasons; 1) as proof of my statement above and 2) because this message is of critical importance for the Body of Christ.

the downward slideFor too long Christians world-wide have been deceived by the world into to settling for the lessor of two evils, between half-truth and outright lies. A simple illustration will prove the folly of this strategy. When forced to choose between two evils, if you chose the lessor, you are still moving downhill and eventually you will reach the bottom, only a little slower. Now my illustration uses current politicians but, the principle applies to all areas and choices of life. The better answer is of course to find God’s will and do that because all your choices will have eternal consequences. Continue reading

Defeating Islamic Terrorism

Islamic terrorism is not ‘contained’ , it is spreading and intensifying. Recent events are verifying the truth of this, so why do Americans have such a hard time understanding this? I want to suggest a radical answer – we in the West have forsaken the God of the Bible! As the prophet Jeremiah wrote about Israel, we too have “forsaken God the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

Time for Truth – a message to the Church

Words are easy – Truth requires action!

Woe to us! Another political election is nearing! As if we do not hear enough lies and disinformation from the news media already, now it is amplified by all the political maneuvering of Democrats and Republicans as they try to tell the most believable lies to the people to get their votes – lies which history proves they have no intention of keeping!

For example, immigration is portrayed as caring for poor Hispanic immigrants just looking for work when the closer truth is they are looking for a government handout. For every one worker there are a dozen welfare leaches (free medical care, free schooling, free social security benefits, etc.). The truth for the Democrats is they represent potential voters and the Continue reading
