From the Heart

Unfaithfulness and divorce is a catastrophic force in the world. Words are inadequate to express the depth of pain that spouses and children experience in life when a father, mother, husband, or wife forsake them. These spouses and children are often left with lifetime struggles because of a sense of betrayal and wrestle with issues of self-worth, rejection, trust, and love. They often take upon themselves the guilt and shame that belong to the offending spouse.

Consider the agony and inner turmoil that a spouse experiences when having to finally make a decision to leave an unfaithful/abusive spouse. Many pillows are wet with tears at night from lonely husbands, wives, and children who long for the stability of a loving family. The future looks dark and hopeless to many spouses and children who are left on their own. The world is full of single dads and moms struggling to hold it all together for the sake of their children—barely surviving financially.Read more

What about the Children?

When a man or woman has divorced his/her companion and married another, he/she is in a state of adultery. This is also true of people who are in polygamous marriages. It is the devil’s design to entrap people in these situations to hold them back from ever being saved. When people get saved, they are to forsake their sin and live in holiness. These mixed-up marriages cause much confusion and heartache. There are some situations which seem impossible to undo, but there is a Saviour who can give wisdom and untangle these problems. The Holy Spirit will guide into all truth and will never lead contrary to the Word.Read more

These Ye Ought To Have Done

(Matthew 23:23-24; Luke 11:42)

Jesus addressed the self-righteous Pharisees on multiple occasions. Christ did not minimize their carefulness nor their strict adherence on issues of the law; but He reproved them for omitting the weightier matters—judgment, mercy, faith, and the love of God.Read more

Prayer Language – “Language of Angels”

There is a another false doctrine closely tied to the practice of unintelligible speaking. It is the practice of praying in tongues in what is called a “prayer language” or an “angelic language.” Some people practice this publicly and some teach it is a “private prayer language.” When people pray in this way, they are speaking words and making sounds which mean nothing to themselves or to the hearers.

Again, truth is not measured by someone’s experience but by the Word of God. When this practice is examined by scripture, it reveals that it is a concocted doctrine of man, not of God—for it is not scriptural.Read more
