From Ingrid Schlueter, comes this tremendous news of a youth ministry that believes in ministry and proves it. With all of the garbage that is passed off as a poor attempt at reaching young people for Christ, to hear of this truly biblically faitfhful ministry is very encouraging.

Dr. Tom Ascol on The Mike Corley Program

Dr. Thomas Ascol, executive director of Founders Ministries and Pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral, Florida was a special guest on MCP today, addressing his recent comments that he will introduce a resolution at the next annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention, requiring that church members actually be born-again.

Dr. Ascol addressed questions like “Shouldn’t it be a given fact that church members should be born-again believers?”, “How does the Word of God define a church-member?”, “Is the SBC overly concerned with membership numbers?”, and a lot more.

It was indeed an honor to have Dr. Ascol back on the program. You can listen to the entire interview at the link below. We would love to hear your comments.

Youth Ministry Watch

I am introducing a new feature here on The Expositor, the Youth Ministry Watch. We will take a weekly look at current trends and concerns in the realm of ministry to young people, as well as alerts as needed. There is a great cause for concern in youth work today, and one my greatest concerns is that youth ministry and youth ministers are, in many cases, the entry way the emergent church movement uses to infect a church body.

We begin this segment with a great article by Voddie Baucham. I have had the honor of interviewing Dr. Baucham on our radio program and I think he is a strong, consistent and faithful voice in the world today. In this opening piece, Baucham lays it right on the line the truth concerning youth ministry. In paragraph one, he writes,

“Recently, I decided not to accept any more invitations for youth events.  Those of you who know me know that I have been wrestling with Youth Ministry for quite some time.  For those of you who are not familiar with my position, here it is.  Youth Ministry as we know it has three key problems:  The model finds no support in Scripture, it undermines the biblical practice of family discipleship, and it has failed to accomplish the goal for which it was established. “

Is Donald Miller part of the emergent church?

The question has been asked, ‘Is Donald Miller involved in the emergent church movement? That question has been asked on several occasions recently, and it was followed with a quick, ‘no he isn’t, no he isn’t’.

Allow me to enter the following article by Ken Silva as exhibit 1.

Donald Miller-Blue Like Emergent Jazz

Their mouths lay claim to Heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth. Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance. (Psalm 73:9-10)

Blue As Emergent

I have received quite a few questions here and at Slice of Laodicea where this post originally ran asking whether Donald Miller, author of the book Blue Like Jazz, is himself involved with the Emergent Church rebellion against sola Scriptura. The short answer: Absolutely yes! Read More »

Matthew 11

 28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Quote of the Day

This quote comes from the late Dr. Walter Martin, via GalatiansV4C16.

“I love Mormons.  I love Jehovah’s Witnesses.  I love the people in the cults.  I care.  I’m fighting for their lives; for their souls.  That’s love.  Love isn’t this sickly, gooey, syrupy garbage that flows out; where people are forever saying with this plastic evangelical smile plastered to their faces, ‘Jesus loves you.  Jesus loves you.  We want you to be born again.’  Butter wouldn’t melt in their mouths!  In the name of God, people are dying in their sins.  You have to tell them more than ‘Jesus loves you.’  You have to tell them Jesus is going to judge them!  If they are not going to receive love, they’re going to receive justice.  As long as we do not tell the whole story the world will tolerate us.  But if we tell the world the whole truth, it will hate us as it hated him.  Controversy is part and parcel of the Christian heritage.  You cannot escape it if you truly want to serve Jesus Christ.”

Spiritual Breathing?

Source:LighthouseTrailsResearch.com 

Who do you think made the following statement?

“Another great way to prepare for your fast is to practice what I call “Spiritual Breathing.” The concept is simple, but it has changed my own life and that of millions of others.Like physical breathing, Spiritual Breathing is a process of exhaling the impure and inhaling the pure. If you knowingly sin, breathe spiritually to restore the fullness of God’s Holy Spirit in your life. You exhale by confessing your sins immediately when you become aware of them, and you inhale by inviting the Holy Spirit to re-take control of your life. As an act of faith, trust Him to empower you. During the fast, spiritual breathing-constant reliance on the Holy Spirit-will enable you to resist temptation, not only to sin but to abandon your fast.”

Who said this? It may or may not surprise you learn that this garbage was promoted by the late Dr. Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ.

Read this great post by Lighthouse Trails Research with details on the herertical practice of spiritual breathing.
