THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU
There’s no doubt about it, there is a great
battle going on in America to determine the kind of America we will live in. Will it be the land of the
free or the home of the slave? Will we be free to worship and serve God openly, with real freedom of
religion and freedom of speech, or will we be enslaved to a government that controls us to the point
where we are reduced to puppets and slaves?
There are many in our land who seek and desire a
Godless America, free from the shackles of biblical restraint. They want God out and man as the "master
of his fate and the captain of his soul." Brethren, we are in trouble!
There’s only one thing that can bring true
freedom to our land and our souls. It is the truth that comes from Almighty God. Jesus put it this way
in John 8:31,32, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the
truth, and the truth will set you free."
The truth is that there is a God Who is Creator
and Ruler of His universe. The truth is that man is incapable of directing his own steps and needs Divine
direction. The truth is that the Bible is the very Word of God and it contains the truth that we need for
living and dying. The truth is that our country was founded with the belief that mankind has been
"endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the
Pursuit of Happiness."
The battle for real truth is on-going. And we
Christians, His Church, must do our very best to share the truth of God to everyone. Paul wrote in 1
Timothy 3:15,16, that the church of the living God is "the pillar and foundation of the truth." We
have the truth! That truth is the Word of God, preserved in Scripture. Jesus said that if we hold to
His teaching, we would know the truth and that truth would set us free.
The battle for this truth will intensify in the
days ahead. For the people of God, neutrality is no option. The battle lines have been drawn. Which side
will we be on? If the church is the pillar and foundation of the truth, then we must double our efforts
to get the truth out! We must speak the Word of God, write the Word of God, and share it with everyone.
We must sound forth a clear and distinct message that God is real, Jesus is the Only Savior, and the
Bible is the only authority for what we believe and teach.
THIS TRUTH WILL SET US
RESPONDING TO THE
We rejoice as two were
baptized into Christ at the Cumberland County Christian Church. David Whisman reported that the Milmay Church
had 165 in attendance on Resurrection Day, April 5th. Praise God! We continue to uphold the Word of
Truth in our three churches.
We ask that you continue to pray for us as we
do His work. Thank you so very much for your prayers and financial support. We could not be here
without your care and concern. New Jersey is truly a "field needing to be harvested".
