"Evangelical" Church.

Tom's Journal.

These folks don't mess around or mince words, and it's refreshing to just hear the pure, crisp FACTS for a change, and I learned a few things. My wife, Sharon, seems to be doing a bit better as I saw her today, and she is getting GOOD treatment with no complaints, and the food at Kenosha Mem. Hosp. is good, but her Diabetes is giving her some trouble now with blood sugar too low. Your prayers are helping both of us-- thank you very much.

Thank you, Tammy C, for being kind and gracious to me when I put my foot in my mouth again. I will try harder to do the right thing in the future. I now know that I am 'over protective' concerning my wife, and I just need to 'chill out' and don't go off like a 'loose cannon' any more. God Bless you and your fine family! And congratulations to the new high school graduate from Ohio! "To the Stars through bolts and bars !"

The Perils Facing the Evangelical Church

R.C. Sproul / Ligonier Ministries:
When we consider the predicament that the evangelical church of the twenty-first century faces in America, the first thing we need to understand is the very designation "evangelical church" is itself a redundancy. If a church is not evangelical, it is not an authentic church. The redundancy is similar to the language that we hear by which people are described as "born-again Christians." If a person is born again of the Spirit of God, that person is, to be sure, a Christian. If a person is not regenerated by the Holy Spirit, he may profess to be a Christian, but he is not an authentic Christian. There are many groups that claim to be churches that long ago repudiated the evangel, that is, the gospel. Without the gospel, a gathering of people, though they claim otherwise, cannot be an authentic church.

Oh isn't that the truth! Thanks Tom. I'm glad Sharon is doing OK. Will keep you both in my prayers!
It's understanding the Rapture. It's a long one again, but hope it clears some things up for folks who don't understand it. I was once one of those! God Bless Tom- have a good week and full of Peace and Blessings!
