"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

Christ's Wrath Averting Sacrifice

Text: Ephesians 5:1-2

God never allows for innovative or creative ways to approach Him. The Bible is filled with incidents where He actually killed people who sought to come to Him on their terms rather than His. Yet God's kindness is seen in His sending His Son to forever remove His just, divine wrath from those who trust in Christ. Here's how...

Heart Detox

Text: Ephesians 4:31-5:2

The human heart, deceitful above all things, is also capable of unbridled malice and bitterness with the resultant bad fruit of rage, anger, slander and vengeance. This should not be the case, especially for those who have received such great mercy from God. But how exactly are we to rid ourselves of this simmering, poisonous venom inside? Here's how...

Grieving The One Who Sealed You

Text: Ephesians 4:30 - "And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption."

The Holy Spirit is not a force but a Divine Person whom we can grieve. Yet even when this happens, He never threatens His people with abandonment, having sealed us for the day of redemption. There is much concerning the Person and work of the Holy Spirit in this vital message.

John 6 for Roman Catholics

A live walk through the 6th chapter of John based upon the original language text. Roman Catholicism teaches that Jesus taught transubstantiation in this chapter, but a fair reading of the text reveals otherwise.

Dr. James White writes, "while one cannot help but deal with the central issues of the gospel in 6:35-45, we continue on to make application and demonstrate that Jesus’ words concerning eating His flesh and drinking His blood, contextually, has nothing to do with Aristotelian philosophy and categories of being. Was Jesus really teaching transubstantiation a thousand years before the term came into usage? And did the disciples walk away because of that teaching? Or was it something else, something made plain in the text, if one is but willing to listen?"

This is a program we hope will be shared with many Roman Catholics.

After School Activities

Text: Ephesians 4:25-29

Once someone is schooled in gospel truth, there is a Christian lifestyle that needs to be embraced - things that must be put off as well as things to put on. While human works play no part in justification, they are definite evidence of a genuine work of God in the human soul.
