Carrying On 4/19/2013

As the nation carried on, in the wake of the capture of the second of two Boston Marathon bombers, our team, including David, Mark, Dr. Jack, Steve M., Steve V., and elder Bob, responded by obeying the great commission. The gospel was proclaimed with passion and conviction.

Our friend, Tony Miano, had an excellent response to the "interfaith service" which was held in Boston in the aftermath of the tragic Boston Marathon bombing. Here is an article which points out the problems with ecumenism.

Meanwhile, back in Burbank, many passionate calls to repentance were offered from the box. Some quotes:

"The problem is not evidence. You know that there is a God. The problem is the will. It is moral. The problem is you love sin. Men love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil."

"There is a story that Jesus told about a poor beggar and a rich man. The poor beggar had nothing. But when he died, because he trusted in God, he went to be in paradise. The rich man, when he died, because he rejected God, he became the beggar for all eternity. He was begging for one drop of cool water. He also became evangelistic. He had denied God, but the moment he went to hell he wanted to go tell all of his loved ones about hell so that they would not go there. Friends we are sinners saved by a God of grace!"

"You have the wrath of almighty God upon you when you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior. You may not think it, but one step out of this life, without Christ, and you are standing before a holy God, and He opens the books and you have to give an account.  And do you know what the big sin is going to be? The big sin is your denial of Jesus Christ. You've heard the gospel, the gospel was brought to you, and what did you do with it?"

Join with us!

"For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again." (2 Corinthians 5:14-15)
