    John MacArthur's Position on the Lordship of Christ   Dr. John MacArthur is the Pastor of the Grace Community Church in Panorama City, California.

His local church is large, but his influence goes far beyond his local church because of his published writings and public tapes which are distributed widely....

    Middletown Bible Church ^ | 03/03/15 | Middletown Bible Church
    The Relationship BetweenGood Works and Salvation Salvation is NOT BY WORKS  (Ephesians 2:8-9) Salvation is UNTO GOOD WORKS (Ephesians 2:10) Good works are not the MEANS of salvation (Titus 3:5). Good works are the RESULT of salvation(Titus 3:8). Good works are not the CAUSE of salvation. Good works are the CONSEQUENCE of salvation. Good works are not what a person must do to be saved. "But to him that WORKETH NOT, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" (Rom. 4:5). Good works are what a saved person does."This is a faithful saying,...

  • The Six Days of Creation

    02/24/2015 3:58:46 PM PST · by RaceBannon · 171 replies
    CHAPTER 4 The Six Days of Creation Were they days or ages??? There are those who believe that the days in Genesis chapter 1 were normal 24 hour days (just as Sunday, Monday and Tuesday are normal 24 hour days). There are others who believe that the days in Genesis chapter 1 were not 24 hour days, but that each day represented an age (a long period of time). They believe that each "day-age" lasted thousands or perhaps even millions of years. This is called the "day-age" theory. WHAT DOES GOD SAY?

    CHAPTER 10 Popes and Ropes ROPES are often used to tie things up. If someone were to grab you and put ROPES all around you and tie you up, you would be unable to move very well.

You would need someone to come along and SET YOU FREE by untying the ropes or by cutting them off from you. Ever since about 500 A.D. different men called POPES...

    The Big Bang “doesn’t contradict the intervention of a divine Creator, but demands it,” Pope Francis said Monday morning, because the beginning of the world “is not the work of chaos.” The Pope was addressing the plenary assembly of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, gathered in the Vatican to discuss “Evolving Concepts of Nature.” God is not some sort of wizard, said Francis, but rather “the Creator who brought all things into being.” The origin of the world derives directly “from a supreme Principle of creative love,” he added. “Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation,...

    A few days ago President Obama, in an interview he gave France's Canal+ TV Channel, said that the American people need to be better educated about Islam, since US could and should be regarded as a Muslim country. He said that the number of Muslims residing in the US makes it "one of the biggest Muslim nations". In reality the US has one of the smallest percentages of Muslims of any Western country. The number of Muslims in the US is approximately 4.5 million, 1.5% of the population, one of the smallest minorities in the US. Since there are approximately...

    My assessment of recent events in the Muslim world related to end times prophesies and the nation of Israel. Each Christian tries to see his generation and it's comparison to end times prophesies. Since my childhood, the writings of Hal Lindsay seemed to rule in Christian thought, the teachings of the rapture and the teachings of the Soviet Union invading Israel in the end times along with an Islamic invasion by Egypt, Syria, Iran, Ethiopia and Libya. The presence of Israel in the land was the final identifier for most Christians that the end times are upon us, so all...

    Mohamed Elibiary, a member on the Obama administration's Homeland Security Advisory Council, is at the center of a controversy involving allegations that former DHS Sec. Janet Napolitano gave him secret clearance which led to him downloading classified information. According to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Elibiary later shopped that classified material around to a reporter. Elibiary, a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood who regularly goes after the Sisi led Egyptian government, is also an active participant on Twitter and mocked the "freak out" by U.S. talking heads discussing the terrorist activities relating to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Phelps, born November 13, 1929, was the leader of the church — an organization that practices a strange, anti-homosexual version of Christianity that has been known to protest at celebrity and military funerals.

    Retired Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, former CIA director under President Barack Obama, called strongly Saturday for Congress to back the White House on Syria, declaring that military action against the regime is “necessary” to deter “Iran, North Korea and other would-be aggressors.” “Failure of Congress to approve the president’s request would have serious ramifications not just in the Mideast but around the world,” Petraeus said in a four-sentence statement provided to POLITICO.

    (WASHINGTON) -- The outgoing director of the FBI gave a sobering assessment Thursday of the current threats facing the U.S. homeland: a biological weapon of mass destruction detonated inside the country and a plane downed in mid-flight are viable scenarios, he said.
