For ten years, my Aunt Kathy cared for her father (my grandfather) in her home. She cooked and cleaned for him when he was independent, and then took on the role of nurse when his health declined.Her service is one modern example of the words of Paul who wrote to the Thessalonians that he thanked God for “your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 1:3).My aunt served in faith and love. Her daily, consistent care was the result of her belief that God called her to this important work. Her labor was born out of love for God and her father.She also endured in hope. My grandfather was a very kind man, but it was difficult to watch him decline. She gave up time with family and friends, and limited travel to care for him. She was able to endure because of the hope that God would strengthen her each day, along with the hope of heaven that awaited my grandfather.Whether it is caring for a relative, helping a neighbor or volunteering your time, be encouraged as you do the work God has called you to do. Your labor can be a powerful testimony of faith, hope, and love.
Dear Friends,I recently came across a beautiful true-life story about a man who has saved hundreds of lives from suicide. Nicknamed the “Angel of The Gap,” Don Ritchie was a former Navy seaman in Australia who moved into a seaside house with his wife in 1964 that was situated just 50 yards away from a cliff overlooking the ocean in Watsons Bay, a suburb of Sydney known as The Gap. Through his living room window, he would often spot lost souls who were obviously there for no other reason than to attempt a jump that would end their lives. As soon as he spotted someone who was acting suspiciously, Don would immediately walk outside and calmly approach them, asking “Is there something I could do to help you?” He would invite them to his house for tea, and more often than not, they would accept his invitation.In the 45 years that Don lived in Watsons Bay, he was credited with saving at least 160 lives by government officials, but his family has said that the actual number is probably closer to 500. A year before his death in 2012 at 86, he said this in an interview: “I’m 85, and even at my age, it has broadened my horizons with all the wonderful people I have met. It’s important for troubled people to know that there are complete strangers out there like myself who are willing and able to help them get through that dark time and come out on the other side.”This inspiring story is an important reminder for us Christians to always be ready to give an account for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:15), especially when we encounter someone who is clearly in need of help, whether it be a friend or a perfect stranger. As the “Angel of The Gap” demonstrated, we must never be afraid to reach out. God most often shares Himself through the witness of His instruments (us), and in so doing, He not only changes those that we touch, but changes us as well.Thank you for your prayers and for your continued support of FRC and the family.Sincerely,Dan Hart Managing Editor for Publications Family Research Council FRC ArticlesReligious Freedom and National Security – Travis WeberSummary of Trump Administration Policy on Transgender Military Service – Peter SpriggWhat Mike Pompeo understands about religion and national security – Travis WeberMike Pompeo, religious freedom and a safer world -- how are these three things connected? – Tony PerkinsStudents Partake in National Walkout for the Unborn – Patrina MosleyDems in a panic as a major Planned Parenthood funding source is at risk – Kelly MarcumMike Pompeo Has the Correct Perspective on Human Rights – Travis WeberCardi B Chooses Life – Patrina MosleyFRC Resources to Combat the Extreme Sex Ed Agenda in SchoolsFor the Sake of Our Security at Home, We Must Focus on Religious Freedom Abroad – Travis Weber Religious LibertyReligious Liberty in the Public SquareSen.

Temple Baptist Church - 3-18-2018Psalm 27:1-5Introduction: A. I want to preach for a few weeks on the importance of the local church in the lives of God's children. When our Lord ascended back to heaven, He left several things to the believers in His impending absence:1. The Holy Spirit. John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.2. The Word of God. 1 Corinthians 13:10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.3. The Local Church. Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.B. These three are equally essential to the well being of the believer. I may do a series on all three before I am finished because of the apparent ignorance of most professing believers of their value.C. David was both a man of war and a man of worship. In these verses, we find his heart's desire to assemble with the people of God in worship. David loved the house of the Lord. Your local church is important in your life as a believer!Psalms 55:14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.Psalms 122:1 A Song of degrees of David. I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.Hebrews 10:22-25 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. (23) Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) (24) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: (25) Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.D. Hebrews 10:25 is possibly the most quoted verse concerning church attendance and has been normally been preached as a negative. 1. Hebrews 10:25 says, “As the manner of some is.” The word manner means a custom or habitual practice. There are so many people who professed to be saved that have no desire to be faithful to the local church. 2. We have a good nucleus here at Temple. I want to encourage the “as the manner of some is” this morning to get in. I also want to encourage the faithful to stay in. Many of the unfaithful were once faithful. E. There has been a great forsaking of the assembling in the past few decades with many in America unchurched. 1. Our nation if following the same path as England and Europe: the path of godlessness which always leads to ungodliness. 2. The faithful few that make up the nucleus of the local church have become fewer in number, especially Sunday and Wednesday night crowds. Few want any time of “extra” services such as revival meetings or mission conferences.F. With many, it is a leaving your “first love” problem. This morning, I want to encourage you to love your church! Make it a major part of your life. What a privilege it is to come to church! What a blessing to be able to come to church! What a benefit to be able to come to church!What makes the local church so special:1. It Is The Place That God Loves - Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it. (Jesus Christ died for the Church! He gave His life for that which He loves. Truly, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” When you get saved, you should love what God loves!)2. It Is The Place Of Worship - Psalms 5:7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. (You can and should worship anywhere but the church house is a special place. It was a place built to worship in. You can come here and sing as loud as you please; you can say “Amen” or shout “Glory to God;” you can give your tithe and offerings scripturally in God's house. What a blessing!)3. It Is The Place Of Preaching And Teach God's Word - 1 Timothy 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. (You probably know it by now, but I love this blessed old King James Bible that I hold in my hand. We can read it at home; We can study it at home; but here in the house of the Lord, men of God preach like they know what they are preaching about! I rejoice with the Apostle Paul when the Bible is heralded and the preacher lifts up his voice like a trumpet!)4. It Is The Place Where God's People Gather - Psalms 55:14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.(The greatest people on earth are there! When I got saved I fell in love with a lot of things that please God but one of the greatest of all was the people of God. No, they are not perfect, but they are my brothers and sisters in Christ! We are all in the Body of Christ which is the Family of God and we love you!)5. It Is The Place Where Sinners Are Both Sought And Loved - Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.Matthew 9:10 And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. (I love to see sinners come to the church house and be privileged to sit under the power of the Word of God and have an opportunity to hear the gospel and give their hearts and lives to Christ. The to watch the Lord gloriously change their lives for His glory.)6. It Is The Place Where I Pay My Tithes And Give My Offerings - Malachi 3:10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. (So many professing believers never get this! The tithe belong to the Lord and giving begins only above the tithe. What a blessing; what a thrill to be able to give to the work of the Lord. I saw this sermon title on the sign in front of Mount Zion Baptist Church one Sunday morning: “There's going to be a hold up Sunday morning.”)7. It Is God's Instrument For World Evangelism - 1 Thessalonians 1:6-8 And ye became followers of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Ghost: So that ye were ensamples to all that believe in Macedonia and Achaia. For from you sounded out the word of the Lord not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God–ward is spread abroad; so that we need not to speak any thing. (I love to give an offering to missions! We can help support precious families as they cover the globe preaching the same gospel that we preach. Missionaries are the greatest people in the world! There is no greater calling than that. Carrying the Word of God to a world that needs Jesus Christ and we can help go by giving! We can go on organized visitation where we can personally witness to the Lost and occasionally see one get saved!)8. It Was There That I Heard The True Gospel Preached And Was Gloriously and Eternally Saved – Luke 18:10, 13-14 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican … And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. (If it weren't for the local church, this pastor would still be lost in my sin. I got saved on a Sunday night in an independent Baptist Church. Thank God for Bob Lamb! God laid it upon his heart to come to Madisonville, Ky and start a church under an old gospel tent! Barbara and I were saved because of it! Ask me why I love the local church!!)9. It Is A Place Of Comfort And Spiritual Joy - Psalms 122:1 I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. (The church is a refuge; a stronghold; a place of peace and tranquility; a place where we come and enjoy the things of God. It is a place of comfort to the troubled and a source of joy to those who are hurting. It is in the church that you will find encouragement and help. It is in the church that you will find that you never walk alone.)10. It Is An Encouragement Filling Station - 2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. (We can get filled up at church. We can go to put something into the service and also to get something out of it. If you do not get a blessing, then it was because you were not blessable! I know blessable is not a word but I can make one up if I wanna! If you want a blessing, you will get one. If you do not want a blessing, don't blame it on anyone or anything but yourself. You get out of a church service what you put into it.)Conclusion: The Local Church Is Just A Little Bit Of Heaven On Earth - Psalms 84:1-12 How amiable are thy tabernacles, O LORD of hosts! My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God. Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God. Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah. Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools. They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. O LORD God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah. Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of thine anointed. For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee. (If you don't like church, don't go to heaven! A lot of people have imagined a heaven that is not the heaven of this Bible. There will be praising and singing; there will be worship like we have never experienced; it is a prepared place for a prepared people! You won't like it there because church is a little bit of heaven on earth!)
Temple Baptist Church - 2-4-2018Romans 6:1-10Introduction: A. There is so much in these verses that I will take my time with them. Tonight, I want to look at the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.B. There is a lot of unnecessary confusion on this subject because of lack of study and rightly dividing the Word of Truth, our Bible. Even among the independent Baptist, there are those who deny this precious doctrine. C. There is the presence of false doctrine on the subject. Most comes from the Pentecostal Movement. The modern day Tongues Movement began in 1906 at the Azusa Street Mission in Los Angeles, California. Born in that “revival” were heresies concerning the baptism of the Holy Ghost and, therefore, spiritual confusion.a. The heresy that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is a second working of grace.b. The heresy that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is for the “spiritual elite.”c. The heresy that the baptism of the Holy Ghost is evidenced by speaking in tongues.D. Let us make this simple. The word “baptize” means to immerse or submerge. It does not mean to sprinkle of to pour. Baptism is placing something into something!1. At the moment of salvation, the believer is baptized into the body of Christ: also called the “family” and the “church.” Verse 3.Romans 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? (Water baptism is a type of what was done at the moment of salvation and does not baptize us “into His death!”)1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. (Water baptism is done by man. The baptism of the Holy Ghost is done by the [capital “S”] Holy Spirit.)Galatians 3:26-28 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. (27) For as many of you as have beenbaptized into Christ have put on Christ. (28) There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. (This baptism cannot be water baptism because, in the local church, we are Jew and Greek—Gentile—bond and free—male and female. In the church or body of Christ, all are equal because all are the same.) Ephesians 5:28-30 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 2. At the moment of salvation, the Holy Ghost indwells the believer.Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.Ephesians 4:4-6 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; (5) One Lord, one faith, one baptism, (6) One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (Four things are tied together in these verses: a) one body b) one Spirit c) one baptism d) in you all. Again, not water baptism. These verse speak of salvation, not church membership. That is the reason that “baptism” is singular, water baptism has nothing to do with salvation, thus, the baptism of the Holy Ghost is referred to here.)Hebrews 6:1-3 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. (When speaking of doctrine in Hebrews 6, “baptisms” is plural. This does not mean “washings” as some would interpret it because there were no “washings” in the New Testament church as the Law was fulfilled in Christ. “baptisms” plural speaks of the baptism of the Holy Ghost and water baptism because both are New Testament doctrines.) 1. The Baptism of the Holy Ghost takes place at the moment of Salvation. 2. Water Baptism is an act of obedience taken after Salvation.3. At the moment of salvation, the believer is sealed by the Holy Ghost: eternal life.1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.Colossians 3:3-4 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. (4) When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
Temple Baptist Church - 1-28-2018Romans 5:12-21Introduction:A. The biblical doctrine of Hamartiology is the study of sin and its consequences. Verse 12 is a much-quoted verse when explaining how sin came about, how we are born sinners—yet innocent, personal sinfulness, and consequences.B. In its context, we find the justification by faith of the believer. Verse 12 explains to the justified why salvation is required. There are several words or phrases that explain our salvation: born again, saved, justified, redeemed, etc. that set forth different aspects of our salvation. When Peter wrote to the “strangers scattered,” he used the word “redeemed.” It means to be bought back.C. The Origin of Sin. “Sin entered” We often fail to realize the deceitfulness and deception of sin. Sin began in two perfect environments and was precipitated by the same personality.1. Sin was found in God's heaven and in the heart of one of God's most trusted servants, Lucifer.Ezekiel 28:14-15 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. (15) Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. (Along with the fall of the “anointed cherub that covereth,” sin brought down a multitude of God's angels.)2. Sin was found in God's Garden and in the heart of the first man, Adam.Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.D. The Definition of Sin. 1. Sin epitomizes the eternal principle of Dualism: 1) To stand outside of God 2) To be independent of God. These two principles can be perfectly defined as Humanism. Humanism wants nothing to do with God and operates independently from God. That is where most of the world now stands. If man can “DO AWAY” with God, then there is no accountability to God. Therefore, man becomes his own “god.”Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.2. Sin is a Violation of God's Law. To trespass or overstep a boundary. The sin nature is the capacity and inclination to do those things that can in no way commend us to God. Sin can be willful or found in ignorance. Sin can be commission or omission.Romans 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.E. The Penalty of Sin. “Death by sin” Sin's wage has never changed.1. Physical Death. Though we are saved, death is sure unless the rapture takes place soon.1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:2. Spiritual Death. To the unbeliever, both physical death and spiritual death in the Lake of Fire.Revelation 20:14-15 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.F. The Endurance of Sin. “Death reigned!” Every man, everywhere, in every dispensation.a. All are born sinners though born in innocence.b. All are sinners by choice and therefore guilty before God.G. Adam, A Beautiful Type of Christ and His Substitution For Our Sin. Romans 5:14 1. Adam Understood God's Commandment – Genesis 2:15-17a1 Timothy 2:11-15 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.Genesis 2:16-17 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.2. Jesus Understood God's CommandmentEzekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.John 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken;Matthew 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.3. Adam Understood God's Judgment For Sin – Genesis 2:17bRomans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.4. Jesus Understood God's Judgment For SinMatthew 26:39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?5. Adam Loved His Bride – Genesis 2:21-25Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make[one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.6. Jesus Loved His BrideEphesians 5:25-29 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: John 15:13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 7. Adam Gave Up His Glorious Residence For His Bride – Genesis 2:7-8Genesis 3:17-19 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.8. Jesus Gave Up His Glorious Residence For His BrideJohn 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.2 Corinthians 8:9 For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.9. Adam Tasted Death Willingly For His Bride – Genesis 3:6 10. Jesus Tasted Death Willingly For His BrideHebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;Hebrews 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:11.
