There is an auditory phenomenon sweeping the internet right now. Similar to the dress photo from a couple of years ago that sent everyone into a frenzy. This year it is not an optical illusion but an auditory…illusion (for lack of a better word). What do you hear when the word “laurel” is played audibly? […]The post Laurel or Yanny: The Truth appeared first on Watchman Fellowship.
Dear Friends,Bishop Robert Barron recently wrote a concise yet profound reflection on John 17:1-11. Here it is in full (emphasis mine):“Friends, Jesus’ prayer in today’s Gospel sums up his wonderful work as he is about to return to his Father. Jesus was, in his very person, the meeting of heaven and earth. God and humanity came together in him, and his entire ministry was the outward expression of that inward identity. By calling a scattered Israel to unity, inviting the poor to table fellowship, healing the sick in body and heart, and embodying the path of forgiveness and love, Jesus was bringing God’s will and purpose to earth.Now, in his Passion and Death, Jesus brought heaven all the way down into the world. He carried the divine light into the darkest places of the human condition—hatred, cruelty, violence, corruption, stupidity, suffering, and death itself—and thereby transformed them. And the proof that heaven is able to transform earth is, of course, the Resurrection. Now we know that cruelty, hatred, violence, fear, suffering, and death are not the most powerful forces in the world. Now we know that the divine love is more powerful. God’s kingdom has, in principle, broken the kingdoms of the world, which thrive upon, and in turn produce, those very negativities.”This is a great reminder for believers to not be afraid of witnessing this divine love to those who do not believe. Christ has transformed even the worst thing that can possibly happen in life—death. We truly have nothing to fear.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 MediaOne Year Later: The Impact of President Trump’s Executive Order Protecting Religious Liberty – Travis WeberFairfax County School Board to Teach Kids: “Biological Sex Is Meaningless” – Cathy RuseRemembering the Little Ones Up Above on Mother’s Day – Dan HartSponsors of California’s AB 2943 Claim It Wouldn’t Ban the Bible.

Temple Baptist Church - 3-18-2018Romans 6:23Introduction:A. Romans 6:23 is one of the most quoted verses dealing with the penalty of sin. It is directly tied to the First Mention of sin's disobedience to God's command and its ultimate penalty.Genesis 2:17 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. (This verse is plain and simple. Adam sinned, and Adam died. A friend of mine preached a two-point sermon about Achan: Achan sinned and God killed Achan!!)B. It can also be coupled with Satan's first lie concerning sin's disobedience and penalty.Genesis 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: (Satan, through the serpent, lied to Eve. He only added “not” to God's command to negate it.)C. Satan continues to this day telling the same lie. 1. People who live in gross sinfulness hasten their death despite the warning labels that the government applies to the product. Sodomy and aids, alcohol and cirrhosis of the liver, drugs and death, tobacco and cancer, etc. are all well known penalties to mankind and, yet, these sins continue to be practiced. 2. Why? Because sin's penalty is always something that happens to others. Satan continue to lie to mankind and mankind continues to ignore the evidence placed before them.D. In its context, this verse is speaking to the children of God. Sin has its penalty. Sin still kills! The wage of sin was shown at Calvary when Jesus Christ, our Propitiation, became obedient unto death. Death of the sinner was God's righteous demand and was fulfilled in Christ.1. Many of God's people have shortened their lives through willful disobedience to God's Word. Each of us live a sinful body that we battle every day. The world entices us all through lust of the eye, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life.2. Paul spoke of this battle with the flesh in Romans, chapter 7, which we will deal with later.Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?3. What deceives the believer is that sin never looks so sinful in its beginning. The end is never in sight and sin has definite pleasure.Hebrews 11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;4. Sin will always destroy. Sin will always leave a path of destruction in its wake. God made it that way. We sow to the flesh, we reap corruption. Plain and simple!a. There are Physiological Consequences of Sin. The loss of the peace of God.Isaiah 48:22 There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.b. There are Legal Consequences of Sin. The Penalty of Law.Romans 13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.c. There are Social Consequences of Sin. Breaks the fellowship of the saints.1 John 1:6-7 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: (7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.d. There are Physical Consequences of Sin. Sickness and Death. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.Psalms 55:22-23 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. (23) But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.James 1:14-16 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. (15) Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. (16) Do not err, my beloved brethren.1 Corinthians 11:30 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.e. There are Disciplinary Consequences of Sin. Church Discipline.1 Corinthians 5:1-5 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. (2) And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. (3) For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, (4) In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, (5) To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.2 Thessalonians 3:6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
Temple Baptist Church - 4-29-20181 Samuel 17:1-11A. We all know well the story of David and Goliath. I want to make a practical application from these few verses this morning as I continue to preach on the subject of “The Local Church.”B. We know the story of David killing the Goliath after exclaiming, “Is there not a cause.” Many sermons have been preached on that subject, but I want to give an application to an important strategy of war. C. The armies of both the Philistines and Israel were afraid of coming down into the Valley of Elah and, for 40 days, had maintained the high ground that was found on either side.1 Samuel 17:3 And the Philistines stood on a mountain on the one side, and Israel stood on a mountain on the other side: and there was a valley between them.1 Samuel 17:16 And the Philistine drew near morning and evening, and presented himself forty days.D. Let me give you some quick typology before I get into the message too deeply.1. The army of the Philistines is a type of the world. They hold their ground but challenge us to come down to the valley and fight their giant.2. The army of Israel a type of the people of God. As long as they hold the high ground, the enemy cannot defeat them.3. The valley is a type of Compromise. Notice that they are not challenged to come down for they will never give up their high ground.4. The giant a type of Satan. He is not of the children of God, he is the giant of this world!5. The 40 days is a type of testing. The giant of the valley of compromise never gives up!6. The challenging is a type of war. Give me a man to fight! If one of us goes down to fight the giant and loses the battle (and he will), then we all become servants of the world.E. Now for an example of what I am preaching about. July 1-3, 1863 was the Battle of Gettysburg. 1. The battle took place in Pennsylvania as the Confederate general, Robert E. Lee, let the Army of Northern Virginia against the Union Army of the Potomac, led by General George G. Meade. This battle was the turning point of the Civil War as both sides had fought to a virtual stalemate. 2. General Robert E. Lee led his army into the heart of the Union north in an attempt to break the Union's back and bring the Civil War to an end. The result of the battle was app. 46,000-51,000 dead and the Civil War lost. 3. The key to the battle was that the Union army held the high ground and General Lee chose to fight there instead of retreat until another day. Though the Civil War would go on for another 2 years, the war was lost at Gettysburg.4. General Robert E. Lee was a brilliant general and well versed in the art of war but, for what ever reason, chose to violate an imperative strategy of war: always hold the high ground.F. In our story, we find both opposing armies holding their “high ground,” while a giant walked in the valley that lay between. In verse 10, the giant cried, “Give me a man!” Goliath was prepared to both fight and die in the valley. G. We, as independent Bible believing Baptists, have been often maligned as being legalistic and cultic because we have tried to maintain the “high ground” through the years. This is rapidly changing as many independent Baptist churches have given in to the pressure of compromise. They have chosen numbers and worldliness over worship in the beauty of holiness.H. I have been referred to by some as being to “straight laced,” too “old fashioned!” One man, as he was leaving our church for the last time said that he was “tired of the Independent Baptist mentality.” I am not mad at these people. I feel sorry for them because they have missed the point and do not understand why your pastor holds the church and pulpit to such high standards.I. Last week, we established that Christ is the Head of the Church and the Church belongs to Him. 2 Timothy 3:15 refers to the local church as the “House of God, which is the church of the living God.”J. The greatest danger of the church is not that we will suddenly leave our “high ground” for the “high ground” of the world. The greatest danger is that our church will slowly descend into the valley of compromise where we will find a “giant” who is willing to fight and die. That our church will take that first step towards compromise.K. When a local church begins down the road of compromise, it enters the valley where there is a “worldly giant” who is willing to fight and die for what he believes. The question must be asked, “Are we?” How do we maintain the “high ground?”L. Though there are many, I want to look at four “giants” that we will face if we begin our descent into the “valley of compromise.”1. There is a “giant of confusion” that awaits us in the “valley of compromise.” We MUST continue to honor the Word of God as the Final Authority for both faith and practice. The high ground” of the Biblical Singularity. We are all together on this subject but to slip is to eventually face a giant that we cannot defeat! Look at all the churches and schools who “gave an inch” to the new satanic versions. Once in the valley, there is no turning back. Biblical incorrectness is virtually uncorrectable.2. There is a “giant of ecumenism” that awaits us in the valley of compromise. We MUST continue to walk in the “good way” of the Old Paths of purity and surety. We must “hold the high ground” of doctrinal purity. We are who we are, Biblicists! We are independent Baptist in name, but the Bible is our standard. Just this week I was invited to a revival in town at another “Baptist” church. The person who invited me said that they missed the old days when Baptist, Methodists, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Catholic and other denominations came together for worship. Ecumenism is virtually uncorrectable.3. There is a “giant of liberalism” that awaits us in the “valley of compromise.” We MUST suffer the Word of Exhortation. Allowing the preaching to have free course. I try to come to this pulpit with something that will help you and me. I do my best to protect this pulpit by preemptively question each preacher that stands here. Men who stand here must be men of God and God never called a man to preach doctrinal error! Men who help me to live a more consistent life for Christ. As goes the pulpit, so goes the church.2 Timothy 4:1-2 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; (2) Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.2 Thessalonians 3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:4. There is a “giant of worldliness” that awaits us in the valley of compromise.” We MUST give God the benefit of every doubt. Abstaining from all appearance of evil in every aspect of our worship. Maintaining holiness in our worship; maintaining integrity in our music; maintaining purity in our membership; maintaining love and forgiveness in our fellowship. Twice in the Book of Judges the Scripture says, “In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” Everyone's standards of music and dress are a little different so there must be a common standard that protects the convictions of everyone. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. (All and always!)
