From our Pastor:



Trusting the Lord as my helper, I want to deal with some of the subtle tactics used today to deceive people about the dividing of God's Word. The Bible warns us not to allow any man to deceive us, I John 3: 7. If one is knowable of God's Word, and walking in the Spirit, I doubt you would be able to twist his mind and deceive him. Yet if a person is Biblically ignorant, it wouldn't be too difficult to mess their mind up about what the Bible really teaches. It's apparent by the number of occults in this age, that large numbers of folk have been beguiled by some wolf.

Well the point I want to stress today is the manner in which many preach the Word.  They are very artful in handling it deceitfully and actually are removing the authority from it and making one feel they have the liberty to create their own set of standards to live by. With all the subtle teaching about how we’re not under the law, everyone is writing a law for themselves. This stems from preaching in the abstract, another name for it is shooting over their heads or never hitting them with the truth. This has removed the “Thou Shalt Not” from the Scriptures and people sitting under it think that the law never condemns them for anything. The preaching may sound correct and strong, but the subtle part is, it never speaks to them about their sin. It slams the people that are not there and the wicked out in the world, but the sinners in church go home feeling good about themselves that they're not as vile as others. They believe they have heard sound doctrine, and it was straight out of the Bible, but the truth is, it's preaching without the Holy Ghost anointing. The Holy Spirit would never weaken the Word, nor lead a man to preach it abstractly.
