Message for February 12, 2017 from Pastor Jerry

“For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 4(NKJV)

            The last of Scripture was given over two thousand years ago.  Since then there have been changes in human knowledge and technology that cause “many” to believe that the Bible is out of date and not relative to today’s society.  Even Bible “scholars” and seminary professors have embraced this idea.  The Bible says that men have studied and studied but have not come to the knowledge of the truth. There is little purpose in calling yourself a Christian if you refuse to accept the Bible as the final voice of authority.  Jesus said, “Heaven and earth may pass away, but my word will not pass away.”

            I am not addressing what is going wrong in the world; we all can see the results of a culture that denies the rule of God over them.  I am addressing that which is being fostered by the “church” of 2017.  The only thing wrong with the Word of God is the way man has twisted it to suit his own ideas.  This has resulted in all the numerous denominations interpreting Scripture in their own attempt to “rightly divide” the Word of truth.  If we accept the Bible as God’s word, it has full rule over us now and forever.  We are not at liberty to believe what we want to believe; we must believe it all.  This being the case, nothing of the Word has passed away regardless of what certain denominations say.

            We cannot pass judgment on Scripture– we must yield to it.  Don’t judge Scripture by what a man says, but judge the man by what the Scripture says.  It is said, Let God be true and every man a liar”.  If anyone says, “I know the Bible says..’but’,” watch out.  If the Bible calls something a sin, then it is still sin.  If something was wrong according to Scripture, it is still wrong today.  The truth has and will always agree with the Word of God.  The problem is that many men have not gotten the truth taught by the Word and therefore teach error.  We must do our best to rightly divide the word of truth. By the way, science and the Bible will agree if the truth is taught.
