Repentance and Forgiveness (Capital Punishment)

RAY: This week Brad and I discussed two topics but only our second topic was recorded properly. So we have a short clip this time. We will redo the first topic which was “Why does God Allow suffering?” on a future date.

This clip is very short but we hope it answers some questions about the topic of Repentance and Forgiveness within the framework of Justice that is required. We didn’t say it in the clip but it is precisely God’s requirement for justice and retribution that made it necessary for Him to come to earth in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ and to die on a cross in order to allow us a route for Repentance and Forgiveness.

Changed Lives

RAY: One of the ways that God reveals Himself is by His written Prophetic Word which we discussed on a previous program. Another way that God reveals Himself is by the Manifestation of the Trinity Father, Son and Holy Spriit in the Christians Life.

This week we decided to discuss this topic. Most will say that this is not proof that God exists. But if you think about it, if God does exist, does it not make sense that He would choose to reveal Himself in some way to His creation. Many say God is unknowable. Perhaps they do not Know Him but He claims that He is knowable. This week we are discussing what it is to Know God in your life.

In our first segmant we start out with a discussion about the promotion of the Christian faith in public places. Then we devote segments 1b, 2 and 3 to the main topic “Changed Lives”.

Segment 1a – Christians handing out tracts in Public Places
Brad called Adam Benton Adam Bethune in this program by mistake. He mentioned that we would like to have Adam join us in a future program. Forgive us for giving your name incorrectly Adam.

Segment 1b – Christian World view verses Secular Humanist / Evolutionary World View

Segment 2 – Paul Smith’s testimony about His life change.

Segment 3 – Lisette Smith’s testimony about Her life change.

RAY: I added the following article from another blog site becasue it relates to handing out tracts and it points out that Chrsitians that do things in a Loving and joyful manner: In a manner which manifests Christ to others are able to communicate God effectively. Ones that do things in a less friendly manner do not make friends but instead make enemies. King Solomon once said that One that wishes to make a friend must show himself friendly. The New Testament says that the Joy of the Lord is our strength. Unjoyful, Bitter Christians are not of much use for our Lord or to those they wish to reach. The message of the tracts that Christians joyfully hand out however must still tell the truth. If A tract talks about heaven it must by necessity point out that there is a hell. If it talks about Light it must refer to darkness.

4000 Tracts Quietly Seeded at Muslim Festival
July 2012

This year, the Arab International Festival in Dearborn, Michigan was again targeted by two types of Christians. And the news media picked up both stories. In one, Christian “protesters” charged in waving confronting signs and placards and carrying a pig’s head on a pole. The other was Tim Berends, a six-foot-tall guy wearing a warm smile and a I-(heart)-Muslims T-shirt.

While the “protesters” were ducking rocks and bottles, Tim quietly moved through the crowds handing out Chick tracts to booth keepers and spectators alike. By the end of the 3-day festival, that attracted over 300,000 attendees, he had salted 4000 copies of the tract, Unforgiven into the hands of mostly Muslim people.

The T-shirt, with “John 9:35-38” on the back, attracted much attention with some Muslims asking where they could get one. Tim would walk against the flow greeting people with a smile and the Arab greeting, “As-Salamu Alaykum (pronounced, aah suh laah mu aah lay kum) which means “peace be upon you” and hand them a tract. Often a family would approach and the father would ignore Tim but, behind her husband’s back, the wife would reach for the tract.

One young lady demanded why he was there trying to cram the Bible down their throat. He replied: “I truly believe in heaven and I truly believe in hell. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t believe that Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father but by me.’ But I love Muslims and want them to come to trust Jesus.” This “soft answer” turned away her “wrath” and she wandered off.

The group of Christians who wore T-shirts and carried signs with scriptures immediately drew a hostile crowd. When the crowd got unruly, they requested police protection and were told there were not enough officers available. The crowd became abusive, shouting profanities and throwing rocks, bottles, and eggs. Eventually the Christians were escorted out and threatened with citations for “disorderly conduct.”

Last year, Tim used the same quiet, unobtrusive technique to distribute 1800 tracts at the festival while the same group used confrontation and met with similar resistance. Tim demonstrated that sometimes it is better to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”

Fallacies of Evolution: A Series of Three Lectures
Evolution is not accepted by all scientists and much less by all scholars; it is admittedly an unproven theory; it is by its own principles unscientific, unphilosophical, unchristian, and simply a rehash of the old teachings of chance garbed in scientific terms. No single case, in the theoretical and popular use of the term, has ever been shown, and there is no known cause which actuates it. …. it is flatly in opposition to the teachings of the Bible and destructive of all Christian faith; that it had its beginnings in heathenism and takes its ending in atheism. … The craze of the last half century is little more than a recrudescence of a philosophy which has divided the opinion of men from the earliest ages. In both Egyptian and East India mythology, the world and all things in it were evolved from an egg; and so in the Polynesian myths. … “Dr. Etheridge, of the British Museum, one of England’s most famous experts in fossilology, has passed the following criticism upon evolution: ‘In all this great museum there is not a particle of evidence of transmutation of species. Nine-tenths of the talk of evolutionists is sheer nonsense, not founded on observation and wholly unsupported by fact. This museum is full of proofs of the utter falsity of their views.’ ”

John D. Charles, Fallacies of Evolution: A Series of Three Lectures, 11,14,16-17 (Scottdale, PA: Mennonite Publishing House, 1917).

What the Bible says about man’s deception and God’s desire that we know the truth
2 Thes. 2 – . 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there first comes the Apostasy [falling away], … 9 … according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with all deception of unrighteousness in those who perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God shall send them a strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be judged [damned] who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (SKJV)

1 Tim. 6 – 20 … keep that which is committed to your(s) trust, avoiding dishonourable and vain babblings, and oppositions of science (knowledge) falsely so called: 21 which some asserting have erred concerning the faith. (SKJV)

1 Tim. 2 – 3 … God our Saviour; 4 … desires all men to be saved, and to come to a knowledge of the truth. (SKJV – Available at www.bibledoor.com)

Evolution and Secular Thinking

RAY: For this week’s show we had Dr. Harold McCarthy joined us for an invigorating conversation which touched on the Ontario provincial government Dalton McGuinty’s non-constitutional opinion that he is Supreme and not the Roman Catholic church regarding what is taught in the Catholic School Boards of Ontario. We also discussed how the widespread common belief in Evolution drives secular thinking today. We are going to have Harold back next week so that we can continue this most interesting conversation that we started with him.

May 29th, Our Inaugural Show

RAY: This is our First show. We hope you like it. We are going to try out a few different sets in the LUFF residence. And we are going to on occasion invite another guest or two to join us in person or by Skype. We would like to pursue various world view philosophies as they compare to the Christian World View in upcoming shows and we hope that you will enjoy the variety of topics that we have in store for you.

Tonight we touched on a few topics. We would like to hear from you both pro and con regarding your opinions of the discussions that Brad and I have. Please be respectful even if you disagree with something that has been said as we in turn will try to be respectful in the things we say. Opinions will be expressed on this show and sometimes what is said may not be in agreement with what you think should be said. We hope to convey that we care about people on our show, but we may not agree with what some people think. We are all fellow travellers on this earth. It ought to be our goal each one of us to discover what is ultimately true. Come join us and let us know what you think as we collectively seek to discuss our belief systems on Truth is What Matters. We may not do a program every week but we will post each time when the next show is coming up.

Part 1

Part 2

One of the things we discussed was Do It Yourself Religions. As stated in the program I have posted one of the tracts from our sister Bible Door Tracts site.  >>  DIY Religion
