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".

    ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS: Part 1: A Prophetic Word to the American Church
    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
     
    With our nation at the crossroads, God's prophetic word to His backslidden people through the prophet Jeremiah apply to the church in America today. Israel refused to listen and came under judgment. How will we respond?
     
    We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray begins a new teaching series that offers some Divine direction for our turbulent times: "Ask for the Old Paths".
