We must remember that all authority is delegated. No man who holds State office rules autonomously. The authority he has is delegated to him by God. Hence, all those in positions of authority stand accountable to God. This is why the practice of the church historically has been – when the State commands that which God forbids or forbids that which God commands, we have a duty to obey God rather than man. The Bible clearly teaches this principle.

Rev. George Wilson: A Life Well-Lived
September 8, 2007

In the midst of this cheap, me-centered, American Christianity, few seem to finish the race. In the midst of this cheap, me-centered, American Christianity, there are few men you can emulate; there are few men who provoke you to love and good works; few men who keep you pressing toward the high mark. George Wilson was one of those few men, and I will dearly miss him.

Christians Should Desire To Have Many Children
July 27, 2007

As Christians, we have children because we see God’s created order declared in Scripture and we obey it; we live in fulfillment of it; we don’t try to circumvent it. We are a theologically-driven people. We conduct our lives in accordance with Holy Scripture. We do what we do based upon what the Word of God declares.

By Pastor Matt Trewhella Church history is important to a Christian’s mind. I’m amazed however at how many know very little of it. Case in point: George Whitefield. George Whitefield was a central figure in the Great Awakening our nation experienced back in the 18th century. He preached in the open field throughout the colonies. […]

The Anguish Of A Young Man In A Depraved America
February 27, 2007

“The tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.” Proverbs 12:10 27 year-old Joel Robison was arraigned on Monday, February 26th, for the charge of attempted murder. Seems he made the mistake after checking himself into a hospital for severe depression of telling his doctor that a week earlier he had driven to the abortion clinic […]

The Government as Extortionist!
November 24, 2000

When a group of men from the Bambino crime family show up at a business and demand that the business “comply” with their wishes or they will be “harmed”, that is called extortion. Why then is it not called extortion when the government shows up and does the same thing to a business? Right now, […]

Why We Did the Billboard Campaign
September 25, 2000

In the Spring of 2000, Mercy Seat Christian Church sponsored a Billboard Campaign focused on the 2nd Amendment of our Constitution: THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. We believe that God’s Word, the Bible, speaks to all matters of life. Therefore, we have a holy duty before God to declare the whole counsel of […]
