"A man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend." - Proverbs 27:17



Letter From a Friend to Church Ministries
November, 1995

PATRICK HENRY ON AMERICA

It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that

this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians,

Not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ."

FOX IS RIGHT

I saw an advertisement for Fox TV that stated "You are what you watch!"

The truth couldn't be plainer nor from a better source. So if you allow yourself to be entertained by queers, prostitutes and perverts on your TV remember... Fox said it. I didn't! (If you aren't any of these. Do you suppose Fox means that that is what they're trying to turn you into?)

THIS IS NOT REVIVAL

  1. The Foster nomination for Surgeon General failed.
  2. More Democrats are abandoning the Democratic party.
  3. The House Judiciary subcommittee voted to outlaw "partial birth" abortions.
  4. The EPA's authority is being trimmed.
  5. Norma McCorvey, the "Roe" of the pro-abortion "Roe versus Wade" Supreme Court decision has traded sides and is now anti-abortion.
  6. Fat Shannon Faulkner has gone home from The Citadel to bake cookies.

Is this Revival? NO! But it is good news! And I know how some folks hate to hear good news. Oh well! Try to survive.

IS THIS REVIVAL?

Through the ministry of Evangelist Brett Ridgeway (412-346- 3032) another church has been converted from the NIV to the King James Bible! That's three that I know of. Is this revival? I don't think so. But it is what I would look for to accompany a revival. Have you been praying?

HOW STUPID ARE YOU?

If you are capable of thinking independently, why do you need so many people and publications to "warn" you of "dangers" and to try to direct your actions? Because fear is a great way to control people. The person that keeps you afraid controls you! Whether it is the Evening News or a Christian publication. American Christians have ceased to fear God. Therefore they do wicked things to churches and each other without a second thought. Yet we are constantly terrified by what we read or hear or watch.

Check yourself out. Who instills the most fear in you? That is who runs your life.

THEY USED TO CALL IT SLAVERY!

A white "owner" bought a black man for a set price. He then put him to work in his field so that he could realize a profit from his purchase. He then sold him when he no longer wanted him or he didn't produce enough. They used to call it slavery. Now they call it football!

GRATEFULLY DEAD

Jerry Garcia, a major force in killing young people through dope addiction is now a Bible believer. An enemy soldier is gone home. Good!

MEETING THE 7000

Walt Leorzel

Walt, a resident of upstate New York, is a veteran of three wars. Born in Germany, he was drafted into Hitler's army and manned the anti-aircraft guns in WWII. After the war, he immigrated to the U. S. and was drafted into the Army and fought in Korea. In 1982 he got saved and has been fighting for the Lord ever since, greatly helping to establish a church in his town.

So what have you done?

AUTOMOTIVE NEWS BRIEFS

1. Mazda is on the ropes financially. Ford is trying to pull them out.

2. Nissan's "Infiniti" line of luxury cars is failing.

3. Ford's new Taurus and Sable will not sell as well as expected. The cars are exceptionally well built, but Ford went overboard on their ''oval" styling. (I'm tired of cars with holes instead of grills, and which are shaped like cow patties...round on the top, flat on the bottom...and they stink!)

4. There is a new catalytic radiator which converts ground level ozone into oxygen. If installed, cars would be a major source of purifying the air! (Watch for environmental groups to oppose its usage. Why? Because their goal is to eliminate private automobiles so as to end your independence. They are not interested in cleaning up the air we breathe.)

5. New York & Pennsylvania have joined the 20th century and raised their speed limits to 65mph. Welcome back to reality!

PROMISE WEEPERS

Along with being an ecumenical monstrosity, Promise Keepers has the goal of making men act like women. I've always joked that if women can hug and cry at a gathering, they've had a good time. (Witness the "International Women's Congress" which met in Peking. They all hugged and cried and figured it was a great success. Men's meetings don't end that way.) Now, Promise Keepers promotes "Male Bonding'' where men hug each other and cry...just like women! ''Bonding'' is a hoax. Whether it is between a mother and baby or two men.

Knock it off you guys! Get back to acting like a man!

WINNING THE AMISH

I recently met some missionaries to the Amish. Since the Amish won't speak to them much and refuse to let them witness to them, how do they win them? The Amish are avid readers. (Like we were before TV!) They provide them missionary books with the plan of salvation in them. They have seen tremendous success in converting them to Christianity. (Just when some of the Brethren think it is "Holy" to look and live like these heathen!)

AH YES! PSALM 133:1!

The cry of the last days is, "Every man hath a doctrine!" and anyone who doesn't subscribe to it is a heretic. So the "Unregistered church" crowd rips the throat out of the evil "Inc. churches." Those who can't understand 01d Testament salvation break fellowship with those who do. Those with a stronger conviction on divorce than God has, murder anyone who doesn't agree with them. The "'Pro-Christmas', vs "No Christmas" groups rail on each other.

Isn't it amazing how we, with whom God has so much GRACE, have none with each other! Kill'em all Boys! When you're the last one alive, you've got to be right!

ARE YOU DOING ENOUGH FOR THE LORD TO MAKE THE DEVIL MAD AT YOU? OR ARE YOU JUST KILLING CHRISTIANS AND MAKING HIM HAPPY?
