Repentance - Christian Examiner (Part 2) PDF Print E-mail
Most of us have heard the slogan, “God allows U-turns.” If the Lord God is holy, he has a right to expect us to be as well (see 1 Peter 1:15-16). The Bible states that the Apostle Paul was “testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:28).

Yet, the popular gospel that “God loves you just as you are,” is often taken to mean that God approves of you just as you are. He doesn’t. The message that your sins must be forsaken if your life is to be consecrated for Him is seldom heard. If so, it is seldom obeyed. The God of the Bible is said to be “holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners” (Hebrews 7:26). The prophet Habakkuk prayed, “Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity” (Habakkuk 1:13). If God turned his eyes away as Christ bore our sins at Calvary (Psalm 22:1), sin has no place in a believer’s life either.

The Apostle Paul commended the Thessalonians saying how they “turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God” (1 Thes-salonians 1:9). Similarly, a saved fornicator needs to quit, a saved bartender needs a new job, a saved cult member needs a new church, etc. We should question any “conversion” that does not inspire a real hatred of wickedness.

If a man is truly sorry for his sins against God, his conversion will be accompanied by a rejection of those things that once were a curse to him. “For godly sorrow...

Why the Lord Causes Storms (Part 1) PDF Print E-mail

This is Pastor Schreib preaching Why Lord Causes Storms on YouTube from Psalm 107

25: For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
26: They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.
27: They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.
28: Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.
29: He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.
30: Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.
31: Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

Speaking of Tongues (Part 2) PDF Print E-mail
A great number of Charismatics believe that I Corinthians 14:14 quotes, “For if I pray in an unknown tongue, the Holy Spirit prayeth, but I do not understand what I am saying.”  Using the verse this way supports their reason for the allowance of the speaker to talk in unknown tongues without understanding what he said at the same time.  But that is not what the verse said!

Speaking of Tongues (Part 1) PDF Print E-mail
Many Charismatics think that speaking in unknown tongues is blabbering words in a heavenly fashion to God.  That is wrong.  I Corinthians 14:9-11 clearly states that if no one understands what the speaker of the tongues had said, the hearer and the speaker are declared to be barbarians.  I Corinthians 14:13 and I Corinthians 14:27-28 clearly states that the speaking of tongues must be interpreted to the hearers.  Whenever you are going to speak in tongues at church, you have to interpret...
