Church Restoration – The Grace of Restoring Those Who Fall

Church Restoration – The Grace of Restoring Those Who Fall

Why is Church Restoration an all but forgotten grace in the contemporary church in America? It is a biblical command by Christ Himself (Matthew 18:15-20) and the Apostle Paul (Galatians 6:1-3, Romans 16:17, 1 Cor 5:5, 2 Thess 3:13-15, Titus 3:9-11). I hope this article will ignite your heart to lovingly restore those who are fallen into sin (James 5:20).

Sola Scriptura… A Weapon of Mass Instruction

Sola Scriptura… A Weapon of Mass Instruction

Our only rule of faith and practice is God’s Word. Its authority knows no equal. May this article encourage you as to its sufficiency and supremacy. (Psalm 19:7-9)

For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe” 1 Thess. 2:13

The most effective weapon we possess as Christians for the work of the ministry is not pragmatic methodology, our TV shows, book clubs, music concerts, radio programs, our celebrities, famous pastors, or even our social alliances with other cultural moral entities–as effective as some of those things may be. The most effective weapon that any church or Christian possesses is the Word of God and the life lived in obedience to its claims.

Every Sunday evening we have an open question and answer time at CROSS Church ! The reason is simple: people experience life at a fast passed clip these days. Many issues are bombarding them daily and they want to know what does God’s Word say regarding all things pertaining to life and godliness!

Hope you can join us as we look to the Lord and His truth for the answers together.

Is Salvation a Matter of Your Free Will… or God’s?

Is Salvation a Matter of Your Free Will… or God’s?

The issue of the gospel is not how do we get sinful people to a holy God; but how does a holy God come to sinful people without violating His holiness and justice? The answer is cross (Heb 2:17). But in evangelism is God a frustrated suitor nervously waiting for sinful man to choose Him? Does man have a free will to choose God; or does God alone have a free will to choose man? (Romans 9:10-24)

Can Christians Lose their Salvation?

Can Christians Lose their Salvation?

If Christ won it you can never lose it! “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” -Romans 8:35

“The Christians Bill of Rights” (living godly in a pagan society)

“The Christians Bill of Rights” (living godly in a pagan society)

In Augustine’s brilliant tome, “The City of God”, he depicts members of two societies: The City of God and The City of Man. Both are bound by God’s sovereignty; both are under the authority of His Word, but the two cities posses very different realities.

The Sovereignty of God and Prayer by John Piper

The Sovereignty of God and Prayer by John Piper

“the Spirit of God intercedes for us according to the will of God” (Romans 8:27)

I am often asked, “If you believe God works all things according to the counsel of his will (Ephesians 1:11) and that His knowledge of all things past, present, and future is infallible, then what is the point of praying that anything happen?”

Usually this question is asked in relation to human decision: “If God has predestined some to be his sons and chosen them before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4) then what’s the point in praying for anyone’s conversion?”
