Recognize the Threat.

The most discouraging stumbling block one has to persevere through, is to have "friends" and family who are exactly like this list reveals. As supposed "friends" they manipulate their way into your life, become very close and personal, luring you to share all sorts of private matters, only to take inventory and betray you when the opportune time arises. As family they are born or married into your life, and only once you've been able to learn about their behaviour can you trace all those years of patterned toxic abuse. And know this, these kinds will accuse you of the very thing they are found guilty of, which is why they strive at turning a healthy environment into clinical chaos.

So what's the remedy? Really, what I've been able to hear from "experts" is to simply stay away from them with no other conversation than quick small talk. I know this is difficult because you truly want them to love you and have a healthy relationship with you, but some will simply never change. Because let's face it, some won't stop being family members, or brethren in the church either. Trust in God, He has a way of providence to keep you safe and working for Him, sometimes that's removing the problem from you, or removing you from the problem.

Some Christians may know the Bible, have faith and practice the Law, but without the Love of God within their means, they are useless.

Dear friends, may we be wise to know our Master and His love for humanity.

"Cleansing the Temple"
"Water Baptism, Saves?"

In 1 Peter 3:21, we see the explicit inspired words of Peter the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. Was he teaching the Christians of the 1st Century that they were saved by "water?" What exactly did Peter mean within the context? This and more we explore in this exclusive LOCALS podcast session.

POLL question: "was Peter the Apostle married?"

"Water Baptism, Saves?"

There is strong evidence to why the EastCoast congregation has a growing ministry to help parents coop for homeschooling efforts.

Rescued - Transferred - Redeemed
The Kingdom of His beloved Son

You've fallen asleep comfy in your bed, and a fire started in your house. You wake to panic as you become aware of your surroundings, trapped by a wall of lavalike heat. You find yourself in danger, where smoke and flames threaten your life. Your neighbors were capable of seeing the threat and had since called for help. The firefighters arrive on the scene and immediately find you in your bedroom--time for a rescue. Are you yet seen in a location of satety? No, not yet. There still needs to be a transfer from the site of dakness, smoke, and fire to an area of light, fresh air, and safety. And so the firefighters guide you out of certain death into a secure location. You have now been saved, not without damage, trauma, and loss. But you've gained your life and get to learn fowared another day.

You've become idle in your sinful behavior and practices. You wake to panic as you become aware of your eternal punishment. A neighbor cares for you enough to share Jesus with you. Will you obey the gospel?

The reception of forgivness was the desired result of all who willfully gave their lives to Christ, submissive to His spiritual operation (Col. 2:11-12). Paul, the apostle, speaking to his brethren in Colossae, was accurate in reminding them of their reconciliation. And how the Word of God they had chosen to hear produced fruit for the Kingdom. The Kingdom was God's preplanned location where all found within would have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

A domain needs a King, Christ Jesus. A Kingdom has boundaries, borders, law and order, and justice. This Kingdom is of a peculiar kind, and we should all seek first legal citizenry (Mt. 6:33). His Kingdom is the body, the church (Col. 2:1,18,24). The body for it has organic members all united for the purposed function--the church fo its assembly, it's family. The way in? Being a repentant believer confessing Christ, immersed into water calling on His name, in order to receive the forgiveness of your sins, being added to His Kingdom, local assembly (i.e. "rescued, transferred, redeemed"). 

This good news of Jesus Christ "was proclaimed in all creation" to give humankind a way out of the flames and sinful consequences. And we are wise to hear its call.

Is your house on fire?

Ref. Colossians 2:13-24

Your servant,

SM
