We are working and praying for a new church for the Ozarks. We hope you will visit a men’s study or one of our Family Nights. We invite you to pass this newsletter on to a family you know that doesn’t attend church, or that is looking for a church.
In ten months I will be [...]
There is no such thing as a “gay Christian”. “Gay” and “Christian” are antonyms…Every time you speak the name of Jesus joined to your lifestyle, you trample under foot the blood of the covenant by which you were sanctified (Heb. 10:29). “Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has” done this!

The verse above is an eloquent exposition of exactly what is going on here. They had a double standard. They wanted their women to be faithful and pure but the men would not live this way themselves.
I believe the most debilitating defect in the Body of Christ today is the lack of understanding and application of God’s Law. The larger portion of Evangelical Christians are antinomian (which means “against law”).
