“Is Calling On The Lords Name All It Takes To Be Saved?”

by Jeremiah Johnson

Imagine living your whole life thinking you were saved from the penalty of your sins, only to discover that your assurance was false. It would be a tragic revelation with horrific eternal consequences. And I fear that many professing believers are in for that severe shock when they enter into eternity.

Self-deception is at epidemic levels in the church today. Countless men and women have gone through the motions of “accepting Christ” or “asking Jesus into their hearts”—they’ve walked the aisle, prayed the prayer, and written the date in their Bibles—but they remain lost in their sins. And their false assurance only serves to inoculate them to the gospel and blind them to their need for the Savior.

Weak pastors, church leaders, and evangelists don’t help the situation when they regularly over-simplify the call of the gospel and overlook the importance of true repentance and faith. Their dumbed-down gospel for a dumbed-down culture is only fanning the flames of spiritual ignorance, which is already sweeping through the church like a wildfire.

One of the verses that’s routinely overused—and under-exegeted—in gospel ministry is Romans 10:13, “For whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

 

Guardrails: Avoiding Regrets in Your Life

Coming to Triple Tree Biker Church Thursday February 18, 2016

Guardrails: Avoiding Regrets in Your Life

Ephesians 5:15-17 ESV 15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.

Nobody plans to enter into a violent marriage. Nobody plans to ruin his or her finances. Nobody plans to struggle with an addiction. What steps do you take to make sure these things don’t happen? Set up guardrails. You can tell yourself that you’ll “be careful.” Well, setting up guardrails is how you “be careful.”

Bern Township man sentenced in drunk-driving accident that killed area pastor

Supporting himself with a blue walker, Bryan D. Koch faced Sean M. Eyrich on Thursday to explain that he doesn’t harbor anger or bitterness against the man who caused the crash that killed his wife this summer.

Instead, Koch, the lead pastor at GT Church in Spring Township, told a crying Eyrich that his family forgives him.

How can expectations affect our reception of God?

Jesus Ministry Begins, Chapter 23 Thursday November 12, 2015 at Triple Tree 7:00 PM
Back in Genesis, the devil tested Eve’s obedience to God by telling her the forbidden fruit wasn’t fatal, but would make her like God. Thinking God denied her something beneficial—something good to eat, exalting to have, and pleasing to behold—she stretched out her hand, wrapped fingers around the focus of her desire, tugged, and ate.
In the desert, the Israelites too faced tests. Like Eve, they doubted God’s intentions for them were good. They despised the manna God fed them; disregarded his promise of grapes, figs, milk, and honey to come; and wailed for Egypt’s leeks and garlic—thus giving in to the temptation to satisfy their physical hunger rather than obey God’s word. When thirsty, they did not turn to the God who had met their needs supernaturally time and again, but rebelled and tested God, asking, “Is the Lord among us or not?” They gave in to bowing to a golden calf and to the Baal of Peor with its seductive women offering sexual pleasures, thus forgetting their promise to worship God alone.
