Addictions. How to Overcome Them.

I would like you to check out a Brother’s Website and Ministry. His Name is Chad Prigmore and his ministry is called http://www.recoveryreformation.org

Chad’s Site has a wealth of information on it, and one of it’s main topics is “Alcoholics Anonymous” and exposing it for what it is.

“The rise in addiction is a symptom of a society in decline, largely in rebellion against God and His truth. Humanism and relativism will continue to further the decay. Addiction is a manifestation of sin, it is not a chronic disease to be addressed clinically as alluded to in the article. Gal 5:19-21 ” Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, SORCERY, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” SORCERY: pharmakeia = medication (“pharmacy”), that is, (by extension) magic (literal or figurative): – sorcery, witchcraft.”

Please pray for his Ministry and the light it sheds on addictions and recovery!

Some rambling thoughts about “tithing”

Good points made here!

excatholic4christ

“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoevertt sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior back in the early 80s and began attending a Gospel-preaching church shortly afterwards. Three or four times a year the pastor would preach on financial giving to the church. He stated that although the New Testament doesn’t command tithing – giving a tenth of your gross income as the Israelites were obligated to do in the Old Testament – that tithing should be our minimum practice since we New Testament saints have so much more to be grateful for. I wasn’t familiar with tithing since I came from the Catholic church where contribution amounts weren’t mandated.

When pastors appeal for funds they often omit…

Please pray that the Islamic radicals turn to Christ! More and more Muslims are converting to Christianity. Some are seeing visions of Jesus!
Please pass this article on.

Islam and Music

The Western World should know how Islam looks upon music and the Performing Arts. Put it mildly, music is not looked at in a good light. Please check out the following PDF from the Arts Council of England:

Spiritual Warfare Ammunition

I have written on the subject of Spiritual Warfare within the family in past articles, but it is something worth revisiting on a regular basis. As the bible plainly states:

Ephesians 6:12, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

As you can read Spiritual Warfare encompasses more than just with the family. So today, I will post a scripture from Ephesians 5. This scripture makes one become introspective and frankly it is a spiritual slap in the face, that we all need once in a while. Please read;

Ephesians 5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Be Imitators of God
5 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children; 2 and walk in love, just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God as a fragrant aroma.

3 But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints; 4 and there must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this you know with certainty, that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 12 for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. 14 For this reason it says,

“Awake, sleeper,
And arise from the dead,
And Christ will shine on you.”
15 Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; 21 and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ.

John Lennox Answering Atheist Objections and Fallacies

Dr. John Lennox. The man I hold in deep respect exposes the problems with the (New) Atheism.

His book “God’s Undertaker: Has Science Buried God?” is a wonderful read as well as his other publications and orations.

Meet My Son “Buddy”!

Okay I will be straight forward with you, I don’t have a son named “Buddy”. I actually do not have a son at all. The reason for me writing this short note is about a pet peeve of mine…calling your child “Buddy”! It likely bothers me more than most.

I believe that the bible is very clear on the functions of a Christian family. The Husband/Father is the spiritual leader of the Family. Read Genesis 18:19 For I have chosen him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice; in order that the Lord may bring upon Abraham what He has spoken about him.

With that verse in mind the Father must have the respect of the child. Read Exodus 20:12 12 “Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

The Wife is subject to her Husband, read Colossians 3:18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

And the bible is specific in child rearing, read Eph. 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
It would be hard to discipline your buddy!

By calling your child “Buddy” or “Pal” etc. is diminishing’s the honour between the Father/Child relationship and is not setting the foundations for proper Family values . That child is not your Buddy or Pal, it is your son. I am not trying to resort to personal experince and rarely do, however in my generation we had to call our Fathers’ “Sir” or “Dad” or “Father”. I distinctly remember a friend of mine when we were in grade 6, and he called his Father by his first name! I will never forget it.

That’s my two cents worth, and I don’t think this is too legalistic is it?

James White vs Robert Sungenis on Papal Infallibilty

To this day as an ex-catholic, I cannot see how anyone stays in that apostate church? It is truly frustrating! It is almost as frustrating as the intro music to this video. However, this video has a crucial message to convey to the Roman Catholic.

Please give the true Gospel to the Roman Catholic, and pray for their repentance.

The US Election From The Christian Perpective: Quotes

Many opinions and rhetoric have been brought up in light of the US Election for POTUS. After hearing quotes such as “I want to vote for the lesser of two evils” just doesn’t sit well with me! Although I am not an American, I live in Canada, and a lot of what the US does and does not do affects the lives of Canadians as well as the rest of the World.

Remember voting for bad Government doesn’t make you a victim, it makes you an accomplice!

Here are some quotes to ponder from John Adams and Samuel Adams:

1. Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost. -John Quincy Adams

2. If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being a gift of ALMIGHTY GOD, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave. -Samuel Adams

3. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. -John Adams (6th President of the U.S.)

4. Let them revere nothing but Religion, Morality, and Liberty… Religion and Virtue are the only foundations, not only of republicanism and of all free governments but of social felicity under all governments and in all the combinations of human society. -John Adams

5. The first and almost the only Book deserving of universal attention is the Bible. In what light soever we regard the Bible, whether with reference to revelation, to history, or to morality, it is an invaluable and inexhaustible mine of knowledge and virtue. -John Quincy Adams

Go and vote!

God Bless,
