to slay error is to proclaim the truth. The surest mode of extinguishing falsehood is to boldly advocate Scripture principles. Scolding and protesting will not be so effectual in resisting the progress of error as the clear proclamation of the truth in Jesus."     C. H. Spurgeon 

"Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late, and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for our trouble. Prayer will become effective when we stop using it as a substitute for obedience."   A. W. Tozer 

The Bridge  

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me;" (John 14:6)

There was once a turntable bridge that spanned a large river. During most of the day the bridge sat with its length running up and down the river parallel with the banks, to let the ships pass freely on both sides. But at certain times each day, a train would come along, and the bridge would be turned sideways across the river, allowing the train to cross.

A switchman lived in a small shack, on one side of the river, where he operated the controls to turn the bridge and lock it into place as the train crossed. One evening, as the watchman was waiting for the last to come, he looked off into the distance, through the dimming twilight, and caught sight of the train lights. He stepped to the controls and waited until the train was within the prescribed distance before he was to turn the bridge. He turned the bridge into position, but to his horror, he found that the locking device did not work If the bridge was not locked securely into position, it would wobble back and forth at the ends when the train came into it, causing the train to jump the track and plunge into the river. This was a passenger train with many people aboard.

He left the bridge turned across the river and hurried across to the other side where there was a lever with which he could operate the lock manually. He could hear the rumble of the train now, and took hold of the lever and leaned backward to apply his weight to it, locking the bridge. He kept applying the pressure to keep the mechanism locked. Many lives depended on his strength.

Then, coming across the bridge from the direction of his control shack, came a sound that made his blood run cold! "Daddy, where are you?" His four year old son was crossing the bridge to look for him! His first impulse was to cry out to the child, "Run! Run!" But the train was too close; the tiny legs would never make it across the bridge in time. The man almost left the lever to run, snatch up his son, and carry him to safety; but he realized he could not get back to the lever in time. Either the people on the train or his little son must die.

He took just a moment to make his decision. The train sped swiftly and safely on its way, and no one was even aware of the tiny, broken body thrown mercilessly into the river below by the onrushing train. Nor were there any passengers who were aware of the pitiful figure of a sobbing man still clinging to the lever long after the train had passed. They did not see him walking home, slower than he had ever walked before, to tell his wife how he had crucified their son.

Now, if you can begin to comprehend the emotions that went through this man's heart, you can begin to understand the feelings of our Heavenly Father when He sacrificed His Son to bridge the gap between us and eternal life.

And how does He feel when we speed through life without a thought for what He has done for us by His Son, Jesus Christ? When was the last time you thanked Him for the sacrifice of His Son?

Jesus Christ died for us. "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit." (I Peter 3:18) 

God Formed us, Sin Deformed us, but the Bible Informs us, that the Blood of Jesus Christ Transforms us." 

The Backsliders List

"The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself." Proverbs 14:14

You Know You're Backsliding When...

    •   You can go hours or days without having more than a passing thought of Him.
    •   You don't have a strong desire to spend time with Him.
    •   You don't have a strong hunger for the Word; Bible reading is a "chore" - something to mark off your "to do" list.
    •   Spending time in prayer is a burden/duty rather than a delight.
    •   Your worship is formal, dry, lifeless, merely going through the motions.
    •   Private prayer and worship are almost non-existent . . . cold and dry.
    •   You are more concerned about physical health, well-being, and comfort than about the wellbeing and condition of your soul.
    •   You crave physical food, while having little appetite for spiritual food.
    •   You crave human companionship more than a relationship with Christ.
    •   You spend more time and effort on your physical appearance than on cultivating inner spiritual beauty to please Christ.
    •   Your heart toward Christ is cold and indifferent; not tender as it once was, not easily moved by the Word, talk of spiritual things, etc.
    •   Christianity is more of a checklist than a relationship with Christ.
    •   You measure spirituality (yours/others') by performance rather than the condition of the heart.
    •   Christianity is defined more what by what you "do" than who you "are" ("doing" vs. "being").
    •   Your obedience and service are motivated and fueled by expectations of others or a desire to impress others, more than by passion for Christ.
    •   You are more concerned about what others think and pleasing them, than about what God knows and pleasing Christ.
    •   Your service for Christ and others is motivated by a sense of duty or obligation.
    •   You find yourself becoming resentful over the hardships and demands of serving Christ and others.
    •   You can talk with others about kids, marriage, weather, and the news, but struggle to talk about the Lord and spiritual matters.
    •   You have a hard time coming up with something fresh to share in a testimony service at church or when someone asks, "What's God been doing in your life?"
    •   You are formal, rigid, and up-tight about spiritual things, rather than joyful and winsome.
    •   You are critical or harsh toward those who are doctrinally off-base or living in sin.
    •   You enjoy secular songs, movies, and books more than songs or reading material that point you to Christ.
    •   You prefer the company of people who don't love Christ, to the company and fellowship of those who do.
    •   You are more interested in recreation, entertainment, and having "fun" than in cultivating intimacy with Christ through worship, prayer, the Word, and Christian fellowship.
    •   You display attitudes or are involved in activities that you know are contrary to Scripture, but you continue in them anyway.
    •   You justify "small" areas of disobedience or compromise.
    •   You have been drawn back into sin habits that you put off when you were a young believer.
    •   "Little" things that used to disturb your conscience, no longer do.
    •   You are slow to respond to conviction over sin - or you ignore it altogether.
    •   You enjoy certain sins and want to hang onto them. You are unwilling to give them up for Christ.
    •   You are not grieved by sin - it's no big deal to you.
    •   You are consistently allured by certain sins.
    •   You are self-righteous--more concerned about sin in others' lives than in your own.
    •   You are more concerned about having the right position than the right disposition.
    •   You tend to hold tightly to money and things, rather than being quick to give to meet the needs of others.
    •   You rarely give sacrificially to the Lord's work.
    •   You rarely have a desire or burden to give, when you hear of legitimate financial needs within the Body, your church, or a ministry.
    •   Accumulating and maintaining material "things" consumes more time and effort on your part than seeking after and cultivating spiritual riches.
  1.   You have broken relationships with other believers that you are unwilling or have not attempted to reconcile.
