I met a friend over the Internet named Kevin Williams. He has a great blog that I follow and enjoy reading. He did an extensive review on Dave Hunt's book on Calvinism. Hunt is anti-Calvinistic to say the least. Kevin does a great job dissecting this book. His review is worth the read if you have ever been tempted to read Hunt's book. I have read Hunt's book and for the "uninformed" it would be a great tool to "whip those nasty Calvinists" with, but it fails terribly in accuracy. I have taken the liberty to LINK to Kevin's article....read on with enjoyment! Thanks.

The new year is upon us and a hope that we ill live more holy this year than we did last. At least that is the hope I have for myself and my family. In England, it is not uncommon to see "mind the gap" at bus and rail stations if there is a gap between the sidewalk and your mode of transportation. It is a subtle reminder, that if you are not careful, you will fall. God tells us that clearly in His Word that we should "Take Heed" lest we fall.
When a person embraces the fact that we are to strive for the holiness of God more so than for our personal happiness, he will discover the meaning of "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done" as well as the phrase, "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness..."
May we in this upcoming year strive to be faithful in all things concerning the Word. One way to aid in this is to faithfully read the Word. If you do not have a reading schedule I will mail you one for free. Simply contact me on our Church Web site listed on this Blog Spot. Just include your name and ask for "Bible Reading Schedule" and I will ship it out as soon as possible. I will not include a request for donations, or any other form of solicitations. I will just sent the schedule and nothing more. This will be as long as my supplies last of course.
If you are in need of Bible Counsel, you may contact us in the same way. Topics like Marriage, Parenting, Work related issues, Addictions, Depression, and a host of other issues can be overcome through obedience to Scriptures. In fact, we believe 2Pe 1:3 is true as it states, "According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:"
Our counseling is really Bible Discipleship, as opposed to "problem centered" counseling. We believe that God's word has an answer to all our needs, and it is our goal to train and encourage others in godly living. We are able to meet face to face if you are local, or we can speak via email or phone if it is possible. Again, we offer this help free, and believe that God will care for our needs as He sees fitting. Our only restriction is time. We will schedule you as there is space available.
It is my hope that the New year is a great blessing to you as you seek to follow the Lord.
