I decided to start this diary of thoughts and comments because of the tragic decline of real gospel preaching in our times. I’ve found that humanism, sentimentality and natural philosophy have all but swamped the professing churches, at least in the area where I live. I’m not called to be a preacher or a teacher, nor do I desire to set myself up as anything, but as one who has been brought to trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ, I feel constrained to say something which might, by the grace of God, set forth some of the basic truths of His holy word. There are still, even in such a day as this, faithful men who continue to preach and teach the word, in season and out of season. There is also a large internet resource of sermons and books which proclaim the great fundamental truths of scripture. For all these we give thanks to God.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.
And when Jesus was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen; Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest. And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
All scripture quotations are in italics and are from the King James Authorised Version of the bible which, as far as I’m concerned, is the only reliable version.
