How Did Thanksgiving Become a Holiday?

In 1777 the first national day of thanksgiving was declared by the Continental congress after the victory at Saratoga over the British. In 1789 the newly formed U.S. Congress passed a resolution requesting “a day of public Thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a Constitution of government for their safety and happiness.”

A Great Way to Read The Bible

People often ask me, "What is your favorite way to read through the Bible?" In seminary, I ran across The Narrated Bible by F. LaGard Smith. This is my favorite way to have a regular Bible study. Some of the reasons I like it are:

Mormons - What do they believe?

The doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) are very interesting. Most of the 'odd' ones are not initially taught to potential converts. But they should be. Instead, "they are revealed later as one matures and gains the ability to accept them."  The LDS Church tries to make its official doctrines appear Christian but what underlies those Christian sounding terms is far from Christian in meaning.

Following are the teachings of its officials throughout the years.  Please note that these teachings are documented from Mormon writers, not anti-Mormon writers.

Jehovah's Witnesses - My Experience

edge

When was the last time the Jehovah’s Witnesses stopped at your door? This summer, they stopped twice at mine. I should thank them. It was because of a Jehovah’s Witness in 1990’s that I became a pastor. I was beginning to study Greek and was reviewing the Greek alphabet at a car dealers auction with a friend. A man at the auction saw me studying and gave me a booklet titled, “Should You Believe in the Trinity?: Is Jesus Christ the Almighty God?” After my first reading of the booklet, I was surprised. It is well written. It seemed convincing. It appeared Jesus Christ wasn’t God. Of was he? Over the next months I examined the booklet in detail. I checked Scripture references in their context. I read my Bible to see for myself. The research culminated in a January independent study course where I wrote a response to the pamphlet.

Jehovah's Witnesses - In Detail

This is a clip from the ESV Study Bible which goes into more detail on the Jehovah's Witnesses

Jehovah’s Witnesses
The divine name. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that God’s one true name—the name by which he must be identified—is Jehovah. Biblically, however, God is identified by many names, including: God (Hb. ’elohim; Gen. 1:1), God Almighty (Hb. ’El Shadday; Gen. 17:1), Lord (Hb. ’Adonay; Ps. 8:1), and Lord of hosts (Hb. yhwh tseba’ot; 1 Sam. 1:3). In NT times, Jesus referred to God as “Father” (Gk. Pat─ôr; Matt. 6:9), as did the apostles (1 Cor. 1:3).

Solomon on Sex - PDF Book Now Available

edge

Sex dominates our identity.  Planted within us is a burning desire to passionately enjoy the opposite sex.  Unfortunately, for many, that burning desire is a fire raging out of control.

The average individual has their first sexual experience at age 16.  One-third of all children are aborted.  Of the children not aborted, one-third are born out of wedlock.  More money is spent each year by Americans on pornography than the combined revenues of ABC, NBC and CBS.  10% of Americans admit internet pornography addiction.

Since sex is out of control, the church often talks about sex as if it is an evil to be tamed rather than a pleasure to be enjoyed.  In church, when was the last time you heard sex portrayed in a positive light?

Wouldn’t it be great if God gave us an instruction manual on how to enjoy sex to God’s glory?  Thankfully, he did!  It is a book of the Bible called, the Song of Solomon.  The Song of Solomon is a collection of short poems that give us windows into the relationship between King Solomon and his first wife, the Shulammite.

In the Solomon on Sex book, we study this book line by line to unlock God’s plan for maximum sexual pleasure.

We also answer thirty-two common questions on sex and marital intimacy.

This book is available for free in PDF format from Christ 2R Culture - Books
