ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS: Part 6–Cheap Grace
"Cheap grace is the deadly enemy of the Church. It has been the ruin of more Christians than any commandment of works." ~Dietrich Bonhoeffer
 
This great Lutheran Pastor/Theologian believed that the preaching of 'cheap grace' in Germany's Christian churches paved the way for Adolf Hitler's rise to power prior to World War II. Have American churches made a similar mistake with a similar consequence?
 
We hope you enjoy Pastor Ray's plea to slay the 'sacred cow' of "Cheap Grace".

    ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS: Part 5: The Sinners Prayer
    The 'Sinner's Prayer' has sent more people to hell than all the bars in America. ~Leonard Ravenhill
     
    Our modern methods of evangelism have filled our American churches with counterfeit converts resting in a false assurance of salvation because of faith in a prayer that has no basis in the Bible.
     
    We hope you enjoy as Pastor Ray teaches on the unscriptural nature of the so-called 'Sinner's Prayer', and why it's a 'sacred cow' that must be killed.

    ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS: Part 4: An Eschatology of Victory
    The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool." Psalm 110:1
     
    Will the church be victorious or defeated before the 2nd coming of Christ? Our answer matters. Because what we believe about the future, (our eschatology), affects our present. While the church is waiting for Jesus to come down, Jesus is waiting for the church to stand up!
     
    We hope you enjoy as Pastor Ray 'kills' the 'sacred cow' of the defeatist view of the future that has paralyzed the people of God.

    ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS: Part 3: Killing Sacred Cows
    And the the Lord said to Gideon, "Take your father's young bull, the second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the wooden image that is beside it; and build an altar to the Lord your God on top of this rock in the proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down."  Judges 6:25-26
     
    God is raising up a new 'Gideon's Army' in this hour. But before we can go to battle we must kill some 'sacred cows', the dearly held doctrines, beliefs and traditions that are producing counterfeit Christians and imprisoning God's people in a political paralysis.
     
    We hope you can be with us as Pastor Ray continues our "Ask For The Old Paths" series with a message entitled, "Killing Sacred Cows".

    ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS: Part 2: A Convenient Christianity
    "Not everyone who calls out to me, 'Lord! Lord!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter."
    Matthew 7:21
     
    It is time to deconstruct the convenient Christianity of our modern American church culture and return to our roots--radical obedience to Christ.
     
    We hope you enjoy Part 2 of our "Ask For The Old Paths" series: "An Inconvenient Christianity".

    Thus says the Lord:
    "Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6:16

    "Heroism is the lost chord of present-day Christianity. A soldier without heroism is a chocolate soldier." ~C.T. Studd
     
    The Christian church in America has been feminized to the point where we have forgotten how to fight. But there is an army rising up!

    "Right now there are Christian heroes somewhere out there that none of us yet know about." Mario Murillo
     
    David, like many of God's people, was obscure, silent and unknown in the public arena for many years. But the blasphemies and taunts of the Philistine giant stirred him to speak up. Today, there is a new 'giant' threatening our own nation. Where are the new 'David's'?

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers,  against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Ephesians 6:12 In Tolkein's Lord of the Rings, King Theoden was under the evil influence of Grima Wormtongue.  Today, many of our own political leaders are under the evil influence of similar demonic power. Our real enemy is not flesh and blood. We hope you enjoy Pastor Ray's message, "Warring With Wormtongue".

    Do not keep silent, O God! Do not hold Your peace, and do not be still, O God! For behold, Your enemies make a tumult; and those who hate You have lifted up their head. They have said, "Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation..." Psalm 83:1-2,4
     
    We are being bombarded with bad news and threatened by those who want to reshape America as a socialist nation. But God is at work in the midst of the chaos, even when He seems to be silent.

    Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations. Ask your father and he will show you, your elders and they will tell you. Deuteronomy 32:7
     
    The Critical Race Theorist's attempt to rewrite American history is right out of the Marxist playbook and exposes their evil agenda to divide and conquer our country using the issue of race.

    1 Samuel 16:7 The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. The Christian cure for the evils of Critical Race Theory and those who seek to divide and conquer America can come from the Church that knows how to deal with the problem of prejudice, in all its forms. We hope you enjoy watching as Pastor Ray continues our teaching series on "Critical Race Theory: The Christian Solution" with a message on "The Problem With Prejudice".
