CHRISTIAN MORMON, JEHOVAH'S WITNESS: IS IT ALL THE SAME? [Excerpts]

Christianity is built primarily on two foundations: Jesus is God and the inerrancy of the Bible. We are encouraged to be at peace with all men, even with those who have different beliefs. But the Bible also encourages us to boldly and confidently present a scriptural basis for truth and compare differences. I​'m not trying to pick a fight​. I want to see people experience a passionate relationship with Jesus. Although many applaud boldness, if the truth be told, life would be much easier if I took another vocation and avoided controversy. But I cannot.

The solution to, and protection from, mind interference in any form is to submit one's will and mind to Christ. This begins by being born again and continues as we walk in submission to His will and His ways. --TBC

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." --Isaiah 26:3

Nuggets from "An Urgent Call to a Serious Faith" by Dave Hunt - God Will Bring You Through -Whence comes the strength to stand against overwhelming opposition and suffering and to triumph as Christ’s faithful disciples? Oddly enough, victory comes not through our strength but through our weakness.
When Paul cried out for deliverance from a severe trial, Christ replied that He had allowed that suffering in order to make Paul weak enough so that he would trust only in the Lord, rather than in his great abilities. “My strength is made perfect in [your] weakness,” our Lord promised (2 Corinthians 12:9).
Paul exhorts us, “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him (Colossians 2:6). Did we not receive Christ in weakness as helpless, hopeless sinners crying out to Him for mercy and grace? That, then, is the way we are to walk this path of triumph in suffering – as sinners saved by grace, weak and helpless in ourselves and trusting totally in Him.
We are earthen vessels, but we contain a great treasure: “that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us” (2 Corinthians 4:7). Such is the secret of our triumph over the world, the flesh, and the devil. The load is too heavy for us to carry. What a relief to turn it over to Him! And what a joy to be delivered from the fear of man, from seeking to win the acclaim of this world, from seeking anything but His “Well done, thou good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:21) in that coming day.
Some manage to amass a fortune to leave to their heirs at death. They seemingly forget that no hearse has a U-haul trailer attached. Others have little of this earth’s goods but have great and eternal riches laid up in heaven. It takes little wisdom to know who has made the wisest choice and who has been truly successful.

Gary: Welcome to Search the Scriptures 24/7, a radio ministry of The Berean Call with T.A. McMahon. I’m Gary Carmichael. Thanks for joining us. In today’s program, Tom wraps up a two-part series with guest Dale Ratzlaff as they address the question: “Are Seventh-day Adventists Christian?” And now, here’s Tom.

Tom: Thanks, Gary. Well, this is our second session with Dale Ratzlaff. We’re discussing the theology of Seventh-day Adventism, and for your information, if you missed our session one, he’s a former SDA pastor trained in Seventh-day Adventist schools and seminary. He’s the author of numerous articles and books addressing Adventist doctrines, including Cultic Doctrine of Seventh-day Adventism and Sabbath in Christ. He and his wife, Carolyn, left the SDA church over doctrines they believed undermined the biblical gospel and now teach biblical Christians about the theological errors of Adventism... http://ow.ly/iO3t307XxW7

"MUD DRAGON" IS REALLY "FLOOD DRAGON"
Evolutionary scientists recently announced another spectacular dinosaur discovery. They nicknamed this one the Mud Dragon because it seems it died buried in mud. Junchang Lü and co-authors describe the new oviraptorid dinosaur in Scientific Reports.1
This is the sixth oviraptor-like dinosaur unearthed from... http://ow.ly/NK5E307PuUi

The word "love" has certainly lost much meaning, particularly in our own culture, where it seems to be little more than an emotional feeling that comes and goes. The Lord spoke much of love and noted that His disciples would be recognized by the love they had for one another (John 13:34-35). John asked how any man could say he loves God whom he cannot see when he cannot love his brother whom he does see (1 John 4:20). Love is much more than an emotion dependent upon feelings. God does command us to love everyone, something we cannot do in our own strength when there are so many who appear to be "unlovable." --TBC

"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another." --John 13:34

Nuggets from “An Urgent Call to a Serious Faith” by Dave Hunt – Science as Religion –

Humanists also have their Babel-like do-it-yourself-kit religion. They call it science. It, too, reflects man’s continued rebellion. Modern man hopes to conquer the atom, space, and all disease, and thus become immortal master of the universe. The materialist’s “heaven” is a peaceful cosmos populated by highly evolved space=traveling civilizations that have restored paradise through super-technology.
Rank materialism leaves the soul empty, but... http://ow.ly/v99H307PO11

Apples of Gold - January 14

David and the other authors of the Psalms were very human individuals who experienced all the failures, shortcomings, fears, and trouble that we still face today. Nevertheless, they stepped out and, as a consequence, saw the Lord answer prayer, deliver them from tremendous difficulties, and protect them from great peril. This gave them a "track record" that ehy took with them for the rest of their life. --TBC

"He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry lay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings." --Psalm 40:2

Nuggets from “An Urgent Call to a Serious Faith” by Dave Hunt – Perverting Saving Faith -

Sadly, for many, faith is a power of the mind and God is merely a placebo that helps one “believe” and thereby activates this mind power. “Prayer is communicating with the deep unconscious…. Your unconscious mind…[has a] power that turns wishes into realities,” said a popular Protestant leader before his recent decease. He said further, “You don’t know the power you have within you!... You make the world into anything you choose.” It is Babel again in a more sophisticated form. The power of “thinking” becomes the magic stairway that leads to the paradise where all one’s wishes can be fulfilled.

God has blasphemously been called “the greatest Positive Thinker [or Possibility Thinker] that ever was!” To some “faith teachers,” faith is a mind power that even God uses – a force contained in words that is released when one speaks forth “the word of faith.” “By the spoken word,” declares the founder and pastor of the world’s largest church, “we create our universe…you create the presence of Jesus with your mouth…through visualization and dreaming you can incubate your future and hatch the results.” Here we have an evangelical form of Christian Science or Science of Mind. It is an abomination to the true God of the Bible.
For many Christians, the power of belief becomes one’s Tower of Babel, the magic steps by which one climbs to that “state of mind called heaven.” Biblical faith, however, is believing that God will answer one’s prayer. That changes everything! We could never truly believe that a prayer would be answered – nor should we want it to be – unless we were certain it was God’s will. Faith is not a magic power we direct at God to get Him to bless our plans, but the “obedience of faith” (Romans 16:26) brings us into submission to Him as the instruments of His will.

Apples of Gold - January 13

Can you still be saved if your faith is weak? Do we ever come to a point in our life when we think our faith is strong? Our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is not predicated upon our strength; it is based upon what a God "that cannot lie" (Titus 1:2) has promised. The difficult part is getting our eyes off our own weaknesses, our past record of failures, and being willing to step out in faith. That's why it's so important to prayerfully read His Word daily. --TBC

"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto htis mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." --Matthew 17:20

Apples of Gold - January 12-

The fear of man, or a desire to be well thought of by others, or to gain some important or influential person's approval, has led many astray. We need to remember that one day we will give an account to Him. Time is so very short and eternity so long! --TBC

"The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe. --Proverbs 29:25
