Now meeting at: 4915 Charlestown Road, New Albany, Indiana — "For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord." 2 Corinthians 4:5

How Can They Escape?

  “He will keep the feet of His saints.” 1 Samuel 2:9   The Lord sees His poor scattered pilgrims travelling through a valley of tears, journeying through a waste-howling wilderness—a path beset with baits, traps, and snares in every direction. How can they escape? Why, the Lord ‘keeps their feet.’ He carries them through every rough place—as a tender parent carries…

One Hope for Incapable Faith

  Incapable Faith: According to the plain statements of Holy Scripture, no one has the will or the ability to come to Christ by faith (John 5:40; 6:44). This is the real issue at hand. Modern day religion, for the most part, professes to believe in original sin and total depravity. Very few people openly teach that man can save himself by…

The Supreme Court’s Ruling on June 26, 2015

Revelation 11:1-13 “The great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified,” has spoken. I can’t tell you how very heavy my heart is. On Friday morning June 26th 2015 the Supreme Court of the United Sates ruled that Sodomites must be protected by law in the practice and promotion of their vile perversity, not only…

The Devil’s Delusion

“If our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 4:3 Satan blinds the minds of unbelievers through hiding the light of the Gospel of Christ, and he does this by substituting his…

Our Infirmities

“For we don’t have a high priest who can’t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities.” Hebrews 4:15 The child of God, spiritually taught and convinced, is deeply sensible of his infirmities. Yes, that he is encompassed with infirmities—that he is nothing else but infirmities. And therefore the great High Priest to whom he comes as a burdened sinner—to whom he has…

Dead To Sin

‘True spiritual mortification does not consist in sin not being in thee, nor in its being put upon the cross daily, nor yet in its being kept upon it. There must be something more to establish perfect peace in thy conscience; and that is the testimony of God concerning the body of sin. He has provided for thy perfect deliverance from it…

Nothing But a Huge Clod Of Dust

“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” Colossians 3:2 Everything upon earth, as viewed by the eyes of the Majesty of heaven—is base and paltry. Earth is after all, nothing but a huge clod of dust, and as such, as insignificant in the eyes of its Maker as the small dust of the balance, or the drop…

Take Me As I Am

“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved.” Jeremiah 17:14 Here is this sin! Save me from it!—Here is this snare! Break it to pieces!—Here is this lust! Lord, subdue it!—Here is this temptation! Deliver me out of it!—Here is my proud heart! Lord, humble it!—Here is my unbelieving heart! Take it away, and…

Sanctification

I hear men talk of becoming less and less sinful and progressively holier from day to day.  I hear men talk about their “progressive sanctification” a great deal.  But the more they boast of their progressive holiness, the more harsh, judgmental and mean-spirited they become towards their ‘lesser brethren’.  Their doctrine is this: ‘God’s children,’ they say ‘grow in righteousness and personal…

Of Him Are Ye In Christ Jesus

1 Corinthians 1: 30 This declaration gives me four glorious things to contemplate. First:  If it is of the eternal God that I am in Christ Jesus; then there was never a time when I was not in Him.  My birth, life and preservation were all considered according to my union with Him. God did not allow me to go too far…
