Fri Nov 17, 2017 3:45 AM The Church of England Announcement by Tom
As I do on occasion, I listen to Dr. Albert Mohler’s ‘The Briefing’. Today, among the three topics was: “The Church of England now wants children to bear responsibility to determine who they are”.
https://albertmohler.com/2017/11/16/briefing-11-16-17/?mc_cid=c90c10577b&mc_eid=ab5fb0a16a
Among many things that could be said about this, it is very irresponsible! To say the least.
This is the kind of thing that is starting to become the norm in the World today. The secular world view is gaining ground in many countries. It appears we are going to see a day (if the Lord tarries) where to stand up against laws related to this, will get a parent arrested, or perhaps have their children taken away from them.
I have a question in light of this (assuming it comes to fruition). It is my view that for a parent to allow something like this in their child’s case; would be irresponsible.
How should a parent respond, knowing these things?
I have heard a few parents say, it does the child no good if the parent is in jail, or the child taken away from them.
Understand here, I believe the Lord is sovereign even here and all things work for good… as Romans 8:28-29 says. Yet, I still can’t think of a good way to go in a case like this.

Thu Nov 16, 2017 7:56 PM Law and Grace by Tom
There are many very good articles written on this subject on The Highway, by such notable authors like CH Spurgeon and AW Pink. I read a few and found them to be very good at helping the Christian understand this very important subject.
However, I am looking for an article that a new believer can understand, that is not too long, but gets to the heart of the matter.
There may be such an article on The-Highway, that I did not find.
The main reason I am seeking an article of this kind, is I have already given a person an article written by AW Pink and apparently it went right over his head.
Any help in my search would be greatly appreciated. One aspect that the person is looking to find out, is whether or not the 10 Commandments are included. They are of course, but I am hoping that an article would help him.
Thank you
Tom

A friend of mine recently posted something on Face Book that I thought was worth sharing and might just spark some discussion.

Fri Nov 10, 2017 12:51 PM What is a missionary work by John_C
It seems as if today we are calling a lot of ministries 'missionary work', but I wonder if we are truly downplaying the missionary. Do college ministries, soup kitchens, rescue missions, even church youth ministries really do count as missionary work. Maybe college ministries and church planting could be counted as I somewhat think that all missionary work should be that of planting churches. I'm just not sure in how it is done in America is missionary work. Also, what about missionaries who have served in the field for many years, but not back in the home offices. The majority of my church missionaries fall in that category as we started supporting them in the early 80s and still support them now when they are back at the home office.

Fri Nov 10, 2017 10:44 AM Trouble and affliction by chestnutmare
I know, O LORD, that Thy judgments are right, and that Thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me’ (Psa 119:75).

Trouble and affliction are not only consistent with God’s love pledged in the everlasting covenant, but they are parts of the administration of the same. God is not only faithful notwithstanding afflictions, but faithful in sending them. ‘then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. Nevertheless My lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer My faithfulness to fail’ (Psa 89:32,33). Chastening is not only reconcilable with God’s loving kindness, but it is the effect and expression of it. It would much quiet the minds of God’s people if they would remember that His covenant love binds Him to lay on them seasonable correction. Afflictions are necessary for us: ‘In their affliction they will seek Me early’ (Hosea 5:15).

The apprehension of this blessed truth will check our murmurings. The Lord knows what is best for each one of us, and one effect of resting on this truth will be the silencing of our petulant complainings. God is greatly honoured when, under trial and chastening, we have good thoughts of Him, vindicate His wisdom and justice, and recognize His love in His very rebukes.
~ Arthur Pink.
