THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

IS THERE A BIBLICAL PRESCRIPTION TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? YES! ONE AND ONLY ONE. IT'S FOUND IN 2nd CHRONICLES 7:14; "IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND." 


*********************************************

COMMENT FROM AN INTERNET CONTRIBUTOR: "HEY PASTOR BILL, YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA WHEN YOU PREACH!"  

YOU BET I DO!  (BUT ONLY ONE!) To teach the Truth! To teach that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Only the narrow road, that leads to repentance! Through Obedience to following Jesus Christ as Lord. All other roads lead to hell and destruction (John 8:32).

     CALL UPON (THE FULLNESS OF) THE NAME OF JESUS AND YOU WILL BE SAVED!

    Pastor’s 
    Corner
    BIBLE STUDY:

    As we get involved with attempting to read, or study our Bible, there are two very important viewpoints to be aware of, and ponder.  One consideration is to study the Bible mostly as an indictment of the human race.  In other words, as we are, sinful rebels, who are bent on finding life apart from God.  The other is to study scripture as an invitation from a loving God.  Yes, we are sinners who have turned away from our creator God and His design for our lives.  (Romans 3:23)  Yes, we’ve rebelled, but God longs to forgive and restore us, the main reason; so we can declare to the world His Story of rescue and renewal.  1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us of all unrighteousness.”  Amen’

    1. Another good one Pastor Bill. It seems that I say the same thing each week, but I do want to say something of how we appreciate your teaching. It seems so practical the way you teach it, not hard to understand at all. You make us want to follow our leader. That would be our Lord Jesus Christ. Bless you.
