That Brick Wall

Reasoned Cases for Christ

brickwall

I don’t know what it is as of late but it’s definitely there. I just can’t seem to get past it. It’s not that I don’t see what’s on the other side and it’s not that I don’t hear God’s words of reassurance, I can see beyond this physical world and I can hear the words that God has given us. And it’s not about unbelief and it’s not about not caring. I do believe and I do care and my trust is indeed in Jesus. In fact, it’s solely because of Him that I have any hope at all. And I am so thankful for His love, grace and mercy.

Maybe it’s because this body of mine is dealing with old age and I can’t ignore it anymore. Maybe it’s because I know my time is short and I don’t want any loose ends left behind. It’s not enough…

Enneagram: New Age Practice Spreading Like Wildfire Among Christians

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

Sometimes I just have to shake my head in disbelief.

What exactly is Enneagram of Personalities?

The author of the book entitled “The Sacred Enneagram” Christopher Heuertz explains Enneagram this way:

“The Enneagram illustrates the nine archetypal human character structures, the nine beautifully flawed ways of being us.”

Beautifully flawed?  I believe that the Bible is quite clear when it calls our “flaws”  by their proper name:  SIN.

Mr. Heuertz said that a friend of his put it this way:

“One of my teachers, Russ Hudson says, “Type isn’t a ‘type’ of person, but a path to God.” I believe it’s sacred because as a map of our soul it’s a compassionate sketch of possibilities. The Enneagram is less about nine “types of people” and more about nine paths back to our true selves and nine paths to divine love.”

Nine paths to divine love?  Can it be any…

Is Music Neutral?

Is Music Neutral?

Michael Jeshurun

On a Forum some time ago a Sister in Christ asked me as to what constitutes true worship. She wrote – “I know that many only worship with Psalms, but the scriptures say “psalms, hymns and spiritual songs – making worship in your heart to the Lord.” My husband and I usually worship the Lord with some of Gadsby’s Hymns, though I am unable to sing. It would be interesting to see what others believe is True Worship.

Pasted below is the answer the Lord led me to write –

Dear Sister,

The question which you have raised is indeed an important one for the Christian. If you had asked me this question in your living room over a cup of tea, my answer would have been plain and simple and straight to the point. This is because you are already for the most part…

Presuppositional Apologetics Round Up: Third week of August 2019

Healing

Riverside Peace

Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. – Jeremiah 17:14

Most of us have prayed for healing at some time in our life. Some of us have prayed more often than we can count and still we are not healed.

Does he hear us? Does He care?

Yes, I believe God cares and He does hear us. I also believe that He desires good health for all His children, but if healing does not appear to come, we must understand that God has a much bigger perception of our lives.

Although God does heal, we must never presume that it’s His duty to heal. It’s not mandatory for Him to heal us, and although there were many miracle healings throughout the Bible, there were many times when God did not heal pain and suffering straight away…

Marjoe Gortner and Falling Faith Leaders

Where Living Begins

You are kept by the power of God through faith for salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time(1 Peter 1:5).

Marjoe Gortner (1944- present) was a Pentecostal evangelist associated with the denomination of my youth. He made his preaching debut at the age of 4 after claiming a vision, which he later said was made up.

Gortner became a world-renowned healing evangelist until the age of 25, when he publicly revealed the tricks used fake healings and to raise money, rejected Christ, and became a movie star. Children are cute, but are never Biblically qualified to preach nor hold positions of spiritual authority.

Marjoe Gortner is one in a long line of people claiming to be Christians but eventually rejecting the Biblical Christ and the doctrines taught in the Bible.

Recent months have added to the avalanche of well-known “faith leaders” (a term I despise; Jesus is…
