A look at "Christian Nationalism" and how it relates to biblical christianity and our roles as believers. How we are to interact with government, society, and authorities as biblical pilgrims on this earth? What does history teach us?
What makes the evangelical movement distinct from simply being Protestant? With many young adults attracted to high-church traditions, we seek to understand the history, the nature, and the value of the evangelical movement in Great Britain and America.
This saving repentance is an evangelical grace, whereby a person, being by the Holy Spirit made sensible of the manifold evils of his sin, doth, by faith in Christ, humble himself for it with godly sorrow, detestation of it, and self-abhorrency, praying for pardon and strength of grace, with a purpose and endeavor, by supplies of the Spirit, to walk before God unto all well-pleasing in all things.
-From birth, we are taught that SLAVERY is the greatest of all sins.
There can be no nuance- all forms of slavery must be viewed the same. There can be no discussion of the matter. The Evangelical church acts just as the Liberal; yet claims to hold to Biblical inerrancy
So: how do they deal with such texts as 1 Peter 2:18: Servants (actually slaves is the better translation of the Greek word doulos), be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh?
Repentance unto life and salvation is a saving grace, worked in the heart of a sinner by the Spirit and Word of God. It is an evangelical grace, accompanied by a true sense of one's sin and an apprehension of the mercy of God in Christ. It leads to a sincere turning away from sin, with full purpose of and endeavor after new obedience.
In our study, after a 4 year study in the Gospel of Luke and as we prepare to being our expository study in the Book of Acts, we take one Sunday to remind/educate Bible students on Our Stand On The King James Bible.

While laying down the reality that not every situation calls for "pleasant words" we should have a balance in our lives and should speak pleasant words when the situation calls for it and when others show kindness and care for you or others.

Contrary to the "always soft and effeminate" approach of the modern, Laodicean, lukewarm evangelical crowd these days the Bible says that men depart from evil only when they FEAR the Lord.
Also Reference: Acts 20:20-21, Jude 21-23
EVERYTHING about Biblical evangelism springs forth from the life of Christ within you. True evangelism is not a thing you go do – it's not an event on a Saturday afternoon – and it's not something you can go to classes and be trained in. True evangelism is a result of the overflowing of Supernatural life
True evangelism is spiritual in its origins, spiritual in its implementation, and spiritual in its resulting effects.
We are not looking for natural results, and therefore we DARE NOT rely on natural means and methods.
So much of so-called evangelism today is based on sales and marketing techniques and tactics, rather than the pure proclamation of the Truth.
o Well-intentioned or not, so many of todays preachers and Christian workers employ tactics and deploy systems that are designed to get people to "yes."
o But our goal is not to "get them to yes." It is not our goal to get them to simply agree and make a decision, but to live in such a way and proclaim the truth in such a way that they understand their deep need for The Savior!
The only true/real/authentic evangelism must align with scripture
The only real evangelism is Biblical Evangelism. All other forms are counterfeits
What I want to do this morning is to put a magnifying glass on these words of Chapter 7, verse one, that say "you alone are righteous before Me in this generation." Last week we examined what it meant for Noah to be called a perfect man. This week we will look closely at what it meant for Noah to be called righteous before God. It is important for us to understand these doctrinal distinctions. When Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord, he received not only an imputed righteousness by faith, a perfect legal standing in God's sight, but he also received imparted grace from the Lord, which led to his personal righteousness being commended by God. So what I am asking of this text this morning is this: How is Noah to be understood as righteous before God in the things that he did by faith? Let me show you 3 things that Noah did that caused God to commend him as a righteous man.
We look at Psalm 119:4 after first taking some time to pray for some missionaries. We discover in this meeting that prayer involves the riches of evangelical obedience preached to ourselves in prayer. We consider God's standard in light of God's gospel.
Why can't churches rest on a history of orthodoxy? 2Kings 16 looks forward to the first serial reading in morning public worship on the coming Lord's Day. In these twenty verses of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit teaches us that even formerly sound churches are in constant danger of plummeting into religion, faith, and worship that God hates.
In this message we examine the spiritual beliefs of one of the most influential people in modern day Christendom across many denominations: C.S. Lewis. Going through the preface to Mere Christianity in detail and many other quotes by Lewis, we compare his statements with the Bible. The evidence shows that Lewis rejected Biblical Christianity and wanted to sacrifice as much truth as possible in order to unite all denominations.
