This is a fun thing to do compliments of www.wordle.net.¬† I must say my blog must be quite boring judging by the words picture. ūüôā¬†¬† Of course, the three words from my signature figured prominently into the analysis.

John Piper and the Prosperity Gospel

As a follow up to the last post, I thought I should share this.

John Piper: Why I Abominate the Prosperity Gospel

I just ran across this very challenging (short) message from Pastor John and felt led to pass it on.¬† His condemnations are pointed, and I believe spot on.¬†¬† But, I think that beyond the obvious heresies common to the prosperity gospel, Pastor John’s question about whether¬†converts¬†of/to the prosperity gospel will fulfill the Great Commission is particularly thought provoking.¬† If we are known by our fruits and the prosperity gospel teaches that growing closer to God will make¬†things better for us in terms of riches, wealth and comfort, thereby making prosperity and comfort¬†a¬†type of fruit, then what would a prosperity gospel advocate say regarding it’s (the prosperity gospel’s)¬†lack of fruit or motivation¬†in fulfilling the Great Commission?

 

 

Any discussion of false teachers would be incomplete without establishing another truth that Paul Washer, in his usual no holes barred style,¬†states this way: “Let me tell you something about false teachers, you think so many times that people fall prey to false teachers, and that, in a sense, can be true, at times. But, I think the dominant theme in Scripture is just the opposite. False teachers are God‚Äôs judgment on people who don‚Äôt want God‚Ķbut, in the name of religion, plan on getting everything their carnal heart desires. That’s why a Joel Osteen is raised up; those people who sit under him are not victims of him, he is the judgement of God upon them…because they want exactly what he wants, and it’s not God!

II Timothy 4: 1-8:

1 I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: 2 preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. 3 For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, 4 and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. 5 As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.

 6 For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.

Dollar for a Drink 2009 Promotional Video

Hello all!

“Dollar for a Drink” is a ministry that I highly recommend for your support!¬†¬† So that you can get to know a little about them, here is their newly released 2009 Promotional Video.

Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

-James 1:27

 

Please prayerfully consider supporting this ministry and meet the basic needs of the Sudanese people!¬†¬† Regardless of whether you monitarily support Dollar for a Drink, please pray without ceasing that the Sudanese people would find the¬†water that is¬†infinitely more¬†needful and desirable¬†than¬†physical water –¬†living water.

17When the poor and needy seek water,
    and there is none,
    and their tongue is parched with thirst,
    I the Lord will answer them,
    I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
18I will open rivers on the bare heights,
*
    and fountains in the midst of the valleys;
    I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
    and the dry land springs of water.
19I will put in the wilderness the cedar,
   the acacia, the myrtle, and the olive;
   I will set in the desert the cypress,
   the plane and the pine together,
20so that all may see and know,
   all may consider and understand,
   that the hand of the Lord has done this,
   the Holy One of Israel has created it.

-Isaiah 41:17-20

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: 14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. 15 The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.

-John 4:13-15

August 27, 2009

Dear Friend,

American Family Association / American Family Radio is partnering with Revival Fires International, the ministry of Evangelist Tim Todd, this week (Aug. 24-28) to place a Truth for Youth Bible into the hands of teenagers who will distribute them to lost students in our public schools. Teenagers are urged to participate in this vital campaign by going to: http://thetruthforyouth.com/tfy_bibles_2009.asp or calling toll free 1-800-733-4737 (8:00am – 6:00pm CST) and ordering a FREE BIBLE for a teenager to distribute at school. Tim Todd has underwritten the costs of making this Bible available free of charge.

During this designated week, in a very effective and unique evangelism outreach, “The Truth For Youth” will be given to all teenagers who commit to give the Bibles to their unsaved friends in school. Limit: One Bible per teenager in each home. Additional copies may be purchased for a special discounted price of only $3.00 each by going to: http://www.thetruthforyouth.com/truth_bible.html#HELPTHECAUSE.

“The Truth For Youth” consists of the entire New Testament in the God’s Word version, along with 100 pages of powerful full color comics that are packed with “absolute truths” regarding issues young people are faced with, such as: Evolution, Sexual Purity, Homosexuality, Abortion, Pornography, Drugs, Drunkenness, Peer Pressure, School Violence, Secular Rock Music, Sorcery and Witchcraft. God’s wonderful plan of salvation is incorporated into each of the stories.
