The Church of the Living God

These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly; but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory. (1 Timothy 3:14-16)

Paul’s purpose in writing his first letter to Timothy was to give him instructions on how a local assembly and its leadership should function. This verse (1 Timothy 3:15) is commonly cited by Roman Catholics to "prove" the infallibility of the teaching and doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church. The assumption here being that by the process of apostolic succession, the Roman Catholic Church is the church of God and therefore it is "the pillar and ground of truth", which can never error doctrinally.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving Day!

I would like to personally thank each and every one of my friends in Christ this Thanksgiving Day. The Lord has been so good to me and my wife Margaret this year. Please take a few moments this morning to give our Almighty and Awesome God the praise and thanks He so justly desires.

Let us prayer for the homeless and hurting souls out there that have nowhere to go on this Thanksgiving Day. Find it in your hearts to reach out to the lost and lonely folks who are hungry and need someone who really cares about them. Reach out in your communities and neighborhoods and share God's blessings with someone today. The Lord will bless you abundantly for taking in one of His sheep that has gone astray. God bless you and your family. Lloyd

The True Church

Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:16-19)

The disciples answered Jesus' question with the common view - that Jesus was one of the great prophets come back to life. This belief may have stemmed from Deuteronomy 18:18, where God said He would raise up a prophet from among the people. Peter, however, confessed Jesus as divine and as the promised and long-awaited Messiah.

Jesus Loves His Little Children

Grisly remains of aborted babies found in Thai Buddhist temple

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski

BANGKOK, Thailand, November 17, 2010 ( - Police in Thailand have uncovered the remains of more than 300 aborted babies hidden inside a Buddhist temple in Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok.

Police chief Sumeth Ruangswasdi said they had been called to investigate a strong smell in the Wat Phai Ngern temple, and discovered a total of 348 fetal remains wrapped in plastic bags and newspaper in a mortuary storage area, according to an AP report.

Police Colonel Metee Rakphan told AFP that plastic bags were found "with fetal corpses inside hidden in the storehouse of the temple." "We assume that they were from illegal abortion clinics, and we are now investigating," he said. Click here for the full story.


The Holy Scriptures speak of a fetus as a person, not simply tissue that can be discarded if found to be a bother or nuisance. Since the fetus is a person from the moment of conception, then the destroying of the fetus is killing a person.

My heart and soul cries out for the 300 slaughtered unborn children who did not get the chance to come into this world. The 300 children of God who never were able to enjoy all that God wanted them to be. Have mercy O Lord on the mothers of these unborn children and those who assisted in their extermination.

All charges dropped against pro-life pastor

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski

OAKLAND, California, November 16, 2010 ( - The Appellate Division of the Alameda Superior Court has dismissed all criminal charges against Oakland pro-life witness Pastor Walter Hoye.

Hoye was arrested in May of 2008, charged, found guilty and imprisoned for peacefully counseling and picketing at a local abortion clinic.

He was charged under a 2008 City of Oakland bubble zone ordinance, which prohibits pro-life protesters outside abortion facilities from standing within 8 feet of women seeking abortions. His lawyers claimed the bubble zone ordinance was enacted for the sole purpose of keeping Hoye away from the Oakland abortuary and was an infringement on his constitutional right of free speech.

In January 2009, Hoye was found guilty of two counts of unlawfully approaching women entering an abortion facility, a misdemeanor enshrined in city law the previous spring.  Click here to read the full story.


This is an interesting article concerning Pastor Walter Hoye in his legal battle after being arrested for peacefully counseling and picketing at a local abortion clinic in 2008.

The freedom of speech and religion in the United States of America is becoming a constitutional right that, we as Christians, can not always take for granted. God bless you Pastor Hoye for your steadfast conviction to the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ.

LET US ALL BE "One in Christ"

I can hardly believe that it has been a whole year now since I was led by the Lord to start up this blog and spread the good news of the gospel. I can honestly say that it has been a very exciting and challenging experience for me. There are so many folks out there with "Christian blogs" that are just as dedicated as I am to reach the lost souls of this world. I want to thank all of my friends that follow and post comments. You have all been an encouragement too me and I consider you all my brothers and sisters in Christ.

Now after John was put in prison, Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1: 14-15)

What is the good news of God? These first words spoken by Jesus in Mark give the core of His teaching: that the long-awaited Messiah has come to break the power of sin and begin God’s personal reign on earth. Most of the people who heard this message were oppressed, poor, and without hope. Jesus’ words were good news because they offered freedom, justice, and hope. Does the message of the gospel bring freedom, justice, and hope into your life?

Barack Obama's Religion

By Dave Hunt
The Berean Call

Q. Do you think President Barack Obama is a Muslim? I respect your answers to questions.... I just read an article in which the author thinks Obama is a "closet" Muslim.

A. It would seem that rather than being a closet Muslim, Obama is more of a universalist with some new age beliefs thrown in. Consequently, he may be sympathetic to Muslims but always identifies himself as a "Christian." His "Christianity," however, is not biblical Christianity, and those with whom he has associated are known for their Liberation Theology - an attempt to marry Christianity with Socialist/Communist principles. Click here for the complete article.


It seems that we have all been wondering if President Barack Obama, who claims to be a Christian, is in fact a follower of our Lord Jesus Christ. This article by Dave Hunt pretty much explains why President Obama has allowed the world (devil) to influence his judgment as President. The simple truth is that President Obama is not a Christian. I have always considered President Obama to be one of the most anti-Christian presidents in the history of the United States. Now, after reading Dave Hunt's article, I can understand why. Please continue to pray for our country and the ungodly politicians that run it.

For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.”But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down from above) or, “‘who will descend into the abyss?’” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:5-13)

Rather than living by faith in God, the Jews established customs and traditions (in addition to God’s law) to try to make themselves acceptable in God’s sight. But human effort, no matter how sincere, can never substitute for the righteousness God offers us by faith. The only way to earn salvation is to be perfect – and that is impossible. We can only hold out our empty hands and receive salvation as a gift.
