“We will sell no wine before its time.” That was the slogan of a famous Paul Masson winery advertising campaign. However a lot of wine is sold before it's time.

- Did you know you were a sinner, unable to do anything toward saving yourself? Did you turn to God, begging for mercy, and did you entirely trust your soul to God?
- Did you enter a newness of life, experiencing a change of affections, and victory over sin? Do you have a love for the Lord and a desire to share him with others?
- Did you understand the doctrine of grace, recognizing that salvation did not begin with yourself or your own will, that your salvation was God’s choice, God’s action, and that God saved you and that God will keep you?

Any good introduction will have at least seven (7) elements that help with interpretation and application. Last week we began with the first of those seven elements, the Authenticity of the epistle.
When we consider the authenticity of any portion of Scripture we have to ask ourselves several key questions:
- Formal Equivalence
- Dynamic Equivalence

How deceptive darkness truly is! My prayer is that the Catholic Church would be scrambling to replace the "Pope" because God removed the darkness from his "eyes" and he truly and solely trusted in the finished work of Christ! Salvation is not in the church, salvation is in the atoning work of Christ.
This may be a mile stone for Obama and the homosexual movement, but it is further decline and break down of the morals of our country. However, the greater reality is the continued rejection of God's plan of human relations.
The push for "normalcy" and societal acceptance marches on.
This sacramental (not sacrament) activity has no biblical basis. One does not need to be an active or faithful member in order to receive the "sign of the cross" applied to one's forehead in ashes. This symbolic ritual is based on the eastern tradition of throwing ashes over one's head to demonstrate repentance before God. The officiating representative places the ashes on an individuals forehead and says one or both pronouncemnts -
Remember that thou art dust, and to dust thou shalt return.
It is my prayer that those who receive this ritual would truly become mindful of their temporary and transient life and would repent of their sins, turn to the living God, and believe the gospel of the bible.Repent, and believe the Gospel.
I applaud various efforts which are expened in order to encourage the people of God to read the Word of God. However, those who do not know God, AKA the "natural man" will not "welcome" or "receive as welcome" the words of God. They are spiritually discerned by those who possess the Holy Spirit. Those who do possess the Holy Spirit need to be encouraged to not only read the Word, but to also "keep" or obey the Word.

"Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness? Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 150, ESV)
