The church is located at 28 Kickapoo Street, Lockhart, The Laodicean Letters, by William Barjames A Form of Godliness he most important thing in this world is not what you're doing for God, but what you're becoming. Are you growing and developing into the likeness of Jesus Christ? Have you experienced the miracle of the new birth? A change in the heart along with a God-centered conscience produced by the Holy Spirit will make you a new creation (born from above). In 2 Timothy 3:1-5 the great apostle characterizes religious people in the latter days who are living contrary to the will of God. These people cannot and will not be allowed to enter His heaven (kingdom). They possess an outward shape of religion without its reality. Their religious journey begins with self-love and ends with a false semblance of godliness that has no power to change their lives. There are many who play religion off to their advantage, but a day is coming when they will be revealed for who they are and they will run like rats from a sinking ship. The mask is already being torn from this professional piety, and the picture which is being revealed is one of moral corruption and shame. When churches ordain homosexuals as shepherds over the flock, God has already vomited them out of His mouth. They are nothing more than wolves in sheep's clothing. There's only one thing that can be done when their true colors are revealed - have nothing to do with them. The command is clear, "from such mm away" 2 Timothy 3:5. The genuine born-again believer should have nothing to do with any. church or denomination that turns its back on the fundamentals of Christian doctrine and behavior. The closer we get to the return of Jesus the more necessary it is to be vigilant and watchful concerning religion as a whole and especially of those who through television tell us how great and wonderful everything will be, and by the way, don't forget to send a generous gift. There have been hypocrites and false Christians in the church from the beginning. The beloved John said that even in his day there were antichrists. He said they went out from us but they were not of us. 1 John 2:18-19 These words not only apply to John's day, they apply to ours as well. If these religious men and women were of the true church they would have remained under the fundamental sound doctrine laid down by the apostles and not succumbed to false teaching. These teachers are the ones who come into your home via television, radio, and sometimes knocking on your door. They promise you freedom, happiness, security and wealth in remm for your loyalty and money. The Bible says there is only one way to be free of sins. There is only one way to have peace and happiness. That way is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus said, "You must be born again." The power of godliness is the miracle of the new birth. "When someone becomes a Christian he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same any more. A new life has begun!" 2 Corinthians 5:17 (The Living Bible) My friend, the most important thing is what you're becoming on the inside and the continuing development and growth of that Holy Seed. i II AL.

FROM THE PEN OF PASTOR NATHANIEL BELCHER NEED HELP? If you get depressed and need help, try reading Psalm 34. It says, I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name to- gether. I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all m: fears. They looked unto him, and were light- ened: and their faces were not ashamed. This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. To all that need help when depressed or anything else, just trust the Lord You will find He is the greatest help of all.
