Should Christians keep the Sabbath today? Paul looks at the fourth commandment of the Decalogue and looks at how it is to be kept today. Was the Sabbath introduced at Mount Sinai or was man to keep the Sabbath from the first creation week? Paul also looks at some common arguments against the Sabbath position. What day is the Sabbath on in the New Covenant?
“The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath”
“If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.”
The Westminster Confession of Faith writes in Chapter 21:8 that the “Sabbath is then kept holy unto the Lord, when men, after a due preparing of their hearts, and ordering of their common affairs beforehand, do not only observe an holy rest, all the day, from their own works, words, and thoughts about their worldly employments and recreations, but also are taken up the whole time in the public and private exercises of His worship, and in the duties of necessity and mercy.”
In a recent sermon called ‘AIDS: the Judgement of God’ Steven L. Anderson made the headlines once again claiming that Homosexuals should be killed and that AIDS was a Judgement of God. However something that has been missed by the media was that Anderson believes that Homosexuals cannot ever come to Christ. He sees them as being beyond the possibility of salvation and therefore he will not allow a homosexual into his church to hear the gospel. What does the Bible teach on these things?
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” –2 Thessalonians 2:11
What is the ‘strong delusion’ spoken about in 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2? What will deceive the people spoken about in the passage? Are the Alien Deception theories plausible as so many today claim? What is the Biblical way of interpreting scripture?
When did ‘the man of sin’ appear? How did the Papacy develop? What impact does futurism and preterism have on the Church? How is dispensationalism faulty? What did Gregory I (Gregory the Great) have to say about the Antichrist and the title of ‘Universal Bishop’? When did the papacy begin?
Paul discusses Halloween and what the Bible says about those who participate in Halloween. What are the roots of Halloween? Kirk Cameron’s strange comments in relation to Halloween are examined along with his recent spiritual compromises with Roman Catholicism and Mormonism. What is the pattern of his ministry? What should one say to a Mormon or Roman Catholic who claim to know the true God?
“…all they that hate me love death.”
Halloween – Harmless Fun or Dangerous Deception?
What is the gospel? What is missing from the modern watered-down version of the gospel? Was C.H. Spurgeon right when he said that ‘Calvinism is the gospel’? What did he mean by such a statement?
From the sermon ‘A Defence of Calvinism':
“There is no soul living who holds more firmly to the doctrines of grace than I do, and if any man asks me whether I am ashamed to be called a Calvinist, I answer—I wish to be called nothing but a Christian; but if you ask me, do I hold the doctrinal views which were held by John Calvin, I reply, I do in the main hold them, and rejoice to avow it.”
“The old truth that Calvin preached, that Augustine preached, that Paul preached, is the truth that I must preach to-day, or else be false to my conscience and my God. I cannot shape the truth; I know of no such thing as paring off the rough edges of a doctrine. John Knox’s gospel is my gospel. That which thundered through Scotland must thunder through England again.”
–C. H. Spurgeon
“I have my own private opinion that there is no such thing as preaching Christ and Him crucified, unless we preach what nowadays is called Calvinism. It is a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else. I do not believe we can preach the gospel, if we do not preach justification by faith, without works; nor unless we preach the sovereignty of God in His dispensation of grace; nor unless we exalt the electing, unchangeable, eternal, immutable, conquering love of Jehovah; nor do I think we can preach the gospel, unless we base it upon the special and particular redemption of His elect and chosen people which Christ wrought out upon the cross; nor can I comprehend a gospel which lets saints fall away after they are called, and suffers the children of God to be burned in the fires of damnation after having once believed in Jesus. Such a gospel I abhor.”
Paul comments on Hillsong’s refusal to condemn homosexuality at their recent conference. Hillsong’s Brian Houston says that the church will not take a public position on LGBT issues. What does this say about the CCM movement? What is the fruit of the Hillsong Church in Australia, New York and around the world?
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
