Traditions of Men – The Alter Call

Learn how the church has corrupted God’s Word through traditions.

Traditions of Men are traditions found in churches today that have no foundation in the Holy Bible. Many times they are contrary to good teachings. They are traditions of men because they were founded by men and not God. Not all traditions are bad, in fact the Bible instructs us to: “stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle” 2Th 2:15. These traditions were taught by the apostles with their grounding in the gospel of Christ. If they are not grounded in Christ, then they are a danger to Christians, young and old.

This article looks at the Alter Call. Continue reading

Traditions of Men – Series Opener

When traditions of men replaces sound doctrine

The question is often asked “What would Jesus do?” when faced with a problem in life. But how often do we ask that question when faced with non-biblical teachings in Church? Just as there are numerous denominations one can attend, each denomination it seems, comes with it’s own list of traditions created entirely by men, and not found in God’s word. So, do we stand up and confront the pastor concerning these non-biblical traditions as we know Jesus would do? Probably not, as we either trust the pastor that what is tradition is also ordained by God (since we never search out the truth ourselves) or we timidly look the other way, not wanting to be seen as a trouble maker.

Miracles I have seen

Miracles I have seen

by David M Peterson

For many years now I have been holding close to my heart the many miracles I have witnessed in my life. For reasons known only to myself, I will not dwell on the aspects of my Salvation and Walk with the Lord. Suffice it to say, it has been a lifetime of belief in God and a slow, sometimes unsteady climb to the loving arms of my Savior Jesus Christ.

The purpose of this article and perhaps many to come is to document the miracles I have personally witnessed in my life. When one is chosen of God to salvation, (please don’t think I am boasting) the work of God in preparing the way for belief can, as in my life, begin much earlier then the actual work of regeneration of the heart. This work I may write about at a later time. As to the miracles I speak of, the first I write of (the first miracle put down on paper is not the first in my life. I choose this miracle only because I have spoken of it before) is as follows. Continue reading
