Letter: The city of Jerusalem belongs to Israel

Editor: Scripture accounts that sovereign God lends no weight or preference to monarchs, politicians or media; and no religion’s doctrines nor the writings in the Quran and Hadiths or the Upanishads sway Him one iota. Covenants, promises of God to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and David, are His benchmark and measuring tape for the protection of legal metes and bounds and sights of three who believe Him.

Letter: New York City is behind modern history’s evils

Just as history is falsely treated as isolated events, so is evil. If you look deeply enough, you will find a trail. Many think that the Middle East crisis can be reduced to Muslims versus Israel. But who is behind the scenes festering the situation? Iran has sophisticated nuclear technology. But who is behind it? Communist Russia and China.

Letter: Free will is different than self-will

Mr. Hebacker always writes a good letter; interesting, thought-provoking and cause to Bible dive for an old Scripture spelunker. Thanks to him and the News-Sentinel for the discussion.

Letter: Your birth and death are the sovereign will of God

It was God’s sovereign will that fixed the time of my birth. It is the same will that has fixed the day of my death. And was not the day of my conversion fixed as certainly by that same will?

Thanks to the Lodi News-Sentinel and Tom Baker for opening up a discussion on the truth (or not) of Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Letter: All are invited to Bible study at New Hope Church

Over the years I have noticed one common trait amongst most Christians — a serious lack of what they believe and why they believe it.

Letter: We must believe Christ is the gate to our salvation

Believing in God and believing God are two distinctly different things.

Letter: Arab and Jewish conflict is due to family conflict

All of the upheaval and death we witness between the Jews and Arabs, and the world at large, is the result of and repercussions from unbelief and impatience with God’s promise to Abraham and Sarah. The fallout from this deep familial rift upsets the whole world in one way or another, and those repercussions are painful and costly and certainly prophetic. For your interest, the biblical accounts are documented in the Book of Genesis, chapters 15, 16, 17, 21, 25, 26 and 27.

Letter: Catholicism, the Beatles and choosing your friends

One of the immediate events following Vatican II was the invasion of Beatlemania. Along with it, there came the nebulous Eastern philosophies that took many from their traditional Catholic Faith.

Letter: Listen to connected council of God, not just the pieces

The Word of God is like a large puzzle that’s made up of a lot of pieces. Each piece is significant but only as it’s connected to the whole. It’s not until the pieces are assembled that we can see the image which it was designed to display. There are exactly as many pieces in a scrambled puzzle as there are in a finished one. But there’s a huge difference: One leaves you guessing and the other reveals the image.

Religion letter: The New Testament church has not replaced Israel

The turmoil in Israel has been very prominent in the news lately. Ever since the nation of Israel was “reborn” in 1948, there has been tension in the region. Some have called for Israel to cede some of her land, while others have called for Israel to be obliterated from the planet.

Letter: In Holy Communion we are united in Christ himself

Letter: We are changed by God’s grace

Many professing Christians seem to believe that the term “by God’s grace” merely means that God made something available to them, which they by natural wisdom and ability took advantage of; but this is far from the truth. The grace of God, as Arthur Pink once said, is an almighty power, an invincible dynamic, a principle victorious over all resistance.

Letter: Sin of disbelief is the only unforgivable sin

Getting lost in a blame game is the Devil’s effectual ploy. It wedges folks against God and each other, and has since the beginning.

Letter: The Bible must be studied in context

It is very common to hear that, since our culture has changed its attitude favorably towards same-sex marriage, we need to change our laws to reflect this change. This, in effect, says that it is popular opinion that determines morality within a culture.

Letter: We must recognize all of God, loving and righteous

It is extremely important to have a biblically balanced understanding of God. In discussing moral issues it is common for people to say “God is love, and He loves everyone,” thus, in effect, justifying all sorts of unbiblical behaviors. And yes, the Bible says God is love (1 John 4:8, 16), that God loves everyone (for example, John 3:16), and that nothing can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-40). This is pretty awesome!

Letter: Nation of Israel turns 66 years old

May 14 marked ancient Israel’s 66th year as the re-established modern sovereign state it is. After their 4,000-year history, including 2,000 years of diaspora and worldwide dispersion, the Jews returned to their God-endowed land as foretold in Holy Scripture. Scripture prophesied the Jewish “aliyah,” or return to their promised land, and Scripture itself is the Jews’ deed to it. This amazing prophecy was fulfilled May 14, 1948, before our generation’s very eyes.
