Examine Yourselves & Hold On!
by Sandy Simpson
This DVD is a message based on the articles "Examine Yourself To See If You Are In The Faith" and "Hold On!"
2 Cor. 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.
Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you - unless, of course, you fail the test?
People who call themselves followers of Christ or "Christians" and claim they are born again must believe certain things. If they do not then they fail the test of faith. They can claim they are born again all they want and "once saved, always saved" but if they fail the test of faith there is no eternal security. Only God knows who will be saved, from beginning to end, because of His foreknowledge and omniscience (Rom. 8:29, 1 Pet. 1:2). God did not make an arbitrary judgment about who would be saved and who would not. His Spirit is given to those He foreknew, when convicted of sin by His Holy Spirit, would choose to believe and commit themselves to Jesus Christ. We are not God and we do not have His omniscience. Therefore, according to Paul, we must be sure our belief system is in the right place once our eyes have been opened to the Truth. I am not saying we do not have assurance of salvation, but our assurance comes not only because of His Atonement and promises of salvation but from our continuing in the Faith, which is always the Biblical criteria. Those who would be Bible teachers must teach according to the whole counsel of God's Word. Let me be clear. There is only one way to salvation. That is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. I will deal with a few of those issues following, but it is important to recognize that being saved is not just a matter of believing that Jesus lived, or that He was a man, or simply giving mental ascent to His existence in whatever form.

|BOOK REVIEW: Becoming Myself, Embracing God's Dream for You|
|by Stasi Eldredge
Reviewed by Gary Gilley
Becoming Myself is a hodge-podge of some of the worst teaching found in pop-psychology laced with mostly misinterpreted proof-texted Scriptures. This is a book that is highly toxic to the soul of any who would accept its teachings as biblical yet, sadly, all too typical of what is being offered today as instruction on Christian living.

Every now and then I get a terse email from someone who has taken exception to my candid comments on Rick Warren, asking questions like: "Have you ever spoken with him personally about your objections and concerns and tried to work through your differences privately as scripture teaches, rather than attack him publicly as you do?" The scripture they usually cite is, of course, Matthew 18:15-17
