11-23-13 “America. . . We Are Sinking One Step At A Time” – Pastor Shane Idleman

Within the last few decades, Americans have seen the destruction of the institution of marriage between a man and a woman, the removal of God’s Word in several areas, and the aborting of millions of babies. Ironically, many of the men and women who died for our freedoms did not die for what we are becoming today. Many gave their lives in order that we would be “one nation under God,” not above God. A Fifth Division graveyard sign in Iwo Jima, Japan, states it well: “When you go home, tell them for us and say, ‘For your tomorrows we gave our today.’” What a travesty when we fail to honor those who gave their lives for the freedoms we now enjoy.

11-16-2013 “The Cross of Christ is Foolishness . . .” – Pastor Shane Idleman

November 16th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Articles - (Comments Off on 11-16-2013 “The Cross of Christ is Foolishness . . .” – Pastor Shane Idleman)

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).

There is a significant shift in the church today to avoid controversial truths such as the cross. The cross confronts evil; it’s repulsive to sinful man. Darkness hates the light. God’s Word says to confront, confess, and turn from sin, whereas many encourage us to ignore, overlook, and continue in them. Silence about sin minimizes the cross. But the cross only makes sense in light of the consequences of sin. “To convince the world of the truth of Christianity, it must first be convinced of sin. It is only sin that renders Christ intelligible” (Andrew Murray; 1794-1866).

On August 12, 2013, Governor Jerry Brown did what to many of us would be unthinkable. He signed AB1266 into law. When I first heard of this proposed legislation, I gave it little thought other than disbelief at the suggestion…never thinking that the proposal would be signed into law?

8/31/2013 – MONEY: Is it Servant or Master? – Pastor Shane Idleman

August 29th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Articles - (Comments Off on 8/31/2013 – MONEY: Is it Servant or Master? – Pastor Shane Idleman)

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21

Throughout the centuries, the church has watched as the pendulum swung between two thoughts: vows of poverty and the “prosperity gospel.” In times past, Christians equated oaths of poverty with deep spiritual maturity; whereas the “prosperity gospel” echoes the opposite…wealth is a sign of God’s favor. Both extremes offer a false sense of spirituality and a wrong view of God. Poverty does not necessarily enhance spirituality, and the “prosperity gospel” is not the real gospel. God may prosper us but that is secondary—a relationship with Christ is primary.
