A man who had not attended one service of the church in four years told me he had never thought of “quitting” the church. I reminded him that he had:
1) Withdrawn his presence from the worship services. He had failed to sing, pray with fellow Christians, to partake of the Lord’s memorial supper and the fellowship of the saints. Continue reading “I Never Intended to Quit! by: Gus Nichols”
A study of Demas is an interesting one. Here we have a man who is a Christian. He is only mentioned three times in the New Testament, and sadly when you look at them in chronological order, you will see a story of apostasy. Continue reading “Which “Demas” Are You? by: Edd Sterchi”
I want to encourage Christians who are no longer faithful to God to return before it is eternally too late. Contrary to popular teaching the Word of God plainly states that a child of God can fall from grace. (I Cor. 10:12; Gal. 5:4; Heb. 3:13; 2 Pet. 2:20-22). Someone has observed that in a given community there may be as many unfaithful Christians as there are faithful. If you are one of those precious souls who, after having obeyed the gospel have fallen away please consider returning to God while there is still time. By remaining in an unfaithful condition you risk being lost for all eternity. Also, consider the influence you are having on your family and friends. While living apart from God you are in no position to encourage anyone to obey the gospel and live a Christian life. Your return to God requires repentance, confession of sin and prayer for forgiveness (Acts 17:30; 8:22). Why not return to God, confess the sin in your life and be restored (I Jn. 1:7-10)?
