They Who Love the Master Best

“Perhaps, they who love the Master best are the very people who will be the most likely to have such a high opinion of the love which he deserves, that they will often chide themselves that they do not love him at all, when they see how little their love is compared with that perfection of affection which he deserves trading binary options.”

Baptizing the Masses with a Watered-down Gospel

Send to a friend Posted by Symphony of Scripture on Saturday, September 29, 2007

“When a sinner wanders into the church and sits through skits, mimes, interpretive dances, and the like, and yet never hears a clear, convicting message about his dangerous and tenuous spiritual situation– that he is a depraved sinner headed for an eternal fire because he is a daily offense to a holy God– how can that be called successful? You could achieve the same level of success by sending a cancer patient to receive treatment from a group of children playing doctor. A sinner must understand the imminent danger he is in if he is ever to look to the Savior. What’s worse is when seeker-focused churches baptize the masses with their watered-down gospel, assuring them that positive decisions, feelings, or affirmations about Christ equal genuine conversion. There are now multitudes who are not authentic Christians identifying with the church. As you set your strategy for church ministry, you dare not overlook the primary means of church growth: the straightforward, Christ-centered proclamation of the unadulterated Word of God binary option.”

Yours To Serve You With What Little I Have

“If you find me short in things, impute that to my love of brevity. If you find me besides the truth in anything, impute that to my infirmity. But if you find anything here that serves to your furtherance and joy of the faith, impute that to the mercy of God bestowed on you and me. Yours to serve you with what little I have binary options.”
- John Bunyan (Works, 1:336).

Below is a transcription from Apprising Ministries of what Doug Pagitt had to say to an employee of a station affiliated with CNN about Dr. John MacArthur. I’m presenting this right now with no further comment except to say as a pastor-teacher myself this is/was an unacceptable missed opportunity to properly represent Jesus Christ.

Interview with Hillsong Staff

Send to a friend Posted by Symphony of Scripture on Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Category: General Topics, Church Issues, Media

This ten minute audio clip is taken from the September 24, 2007 Way of the Master Radio show. In it Todd Friel interviews some of the staff from Hillsong who were filming a promotional video for a conference called ‘Hillsong Europe.’ This “theological dogs breakfast” goes to show that even their staff aren’t able to give a reason to anyone who asks about the hope that is within.

Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.
(Ezekiel 34:2-3)

A Worthless Counterfeit

Send to a friend Posted by Symphony of Scripture on Wednesday, September 26, 2007
Category: General Topics

“Christ will be master of the heart, and sin must be mortified. If your life is unholy, then your heart is unchanged, and you are an unsaved person. The Savior will sanctify His people, renew them, give them a hatred of sin, and a love of holiness. The grace that does not make a man better than others is a worthless counterfeit. Christ saves His people, not IN their sins, but FROM their sins. Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord.”

Prayer, by Paul Washer

Send to a friend Posted by Symphony of Scripture on Monday, September 24, 2007
Category: Sermons, Media, Christianity

Jesus withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. (Luke 5:16)

No disciple ever came to Jesus asking Him to teach them to preach, walk on water, raise the dead, or cast out demons. But they did ask Him to teach them to pray. Why? Why is prayer so important? Download and listen to this sermon by Paul Washer simply titled, ‘Prayer.’

Hell According to Rob Bell

Send to a friend Posted by Symphony of Scripture on Sunday, September 23, 2007
Category: Church Issues, Emergent Church

Over at Six Steps, Alex S. Leung writes:

Does Hell really exist? Rob Bell doesn’t seem to think so. Or does he? Maybe he does, and I’m just confused at his evasive indirectness. If he does believe in a literal hell, he’s seems very quiet about it — especially for somebody who apparently has graduated from seminary. At least, that is what I gather after reading this recent interview where he simply dodges answering the question in a very Emergent kind of way…
