Halloween and the Biblically Informed Conscience

The article below was written by two women who are members of Saving Grace Bible Church. Confronted with a Fall Festival on Halloween, it is the story of their struggle to reconcile the traditions of their past with the truth of Scripture. Above all, it is a testament to the certainty of God's promise to renew our minds through the power of His Word.

sgbcvenice.org How should Christians address the subject of Halloween?

[10/02/20]   “We are living in a time when some people pretend the church can be strong while we have no preachers. Nothing could be further from the truth. If we want strong churches let’s ask the Lord of the harvest to raise up faithful preachers. . . that makes for strong churches.”

- Richard Caldwell

[09/14/20]   "A changeable God would be a terror to the righteous, they would have no sure anchorage, and amid a changing world they would be driven to and fro in perpetual fear of shipwreck. Our heart leaps for joy as we bow before One who has never broken His word or changed His purpose."

- Charles Spurgeon

[09/05/20]   “Do you know why forgiveness is so hard? Because we don’t believe our debt before God is all that much.”

- Jerry Wragg

[08/16/20]   "In suffering, your greatest danger is not physical harm - it's believing wrongly about the character of God."

- Jerry Wragg

[08/14/20]   “You cannot have Christ for your Savior unless you also have Him as your Lord.”

- Steven J. Lawson

[08/08/20]   "Though poor in this world's goods, though grieving the loss of loved ones, though suffering pain of body, though harassed by sin and Satan, though hated and persecuted by worldlings, whatever be the case and lot of the Christian, it is both his privilege and duty to rejoice in the Lord."

- A.W. Pink

Sermon 8-2-20
Pastor Daron Roberts
Sermons To Preach To Yourself When Life Hurts | Psalm 103

Soul, listen to me, you merited hell, but you were rewarded with heaven (Psalm 103:3).
Soul, listen to me, you were a slave, now you are a child of the King (Psalm 103:4, 19).
Soul, listen to me, God is not stingy when dispensing grace to you (Psalm 103:5-6).
Soul, listen to me, God’s historical faithfulness only gives you the precedent to trust Him (Psalm 103:7-12).
Soul, listen to me, Your Father knows your sinful frailties and pours compassion on you, His child (Psalm 103:13-14).
Soul, listen to me, life is temporary. God is eternal. Live for His glory (Psalm 103:15-22).

[08/02/20]   “It is a great thing to praise Jesus Christ by day; but there is no music sweeter than the nightingale's, and she praises God by night. It is well to praise the Lord for his mercy when you are in health, but make sure that you do it when you are sick, for then your praise is more likely to be genuine. When you are deep down in sorrow, do not rob God of the gratitude that is due to him; never stint him of his revenue of praise whatever else goes short. Praise him sometimes on the high-sounding cymbals,—crash, crash,—with all your heart and being; but when you cannot do that, just sit, and mean his praise in solemn silence in the deep quiet of your spirit.”

- C.H. Spurgeon

[07/28/20]   "O you who love the LORD, hate evil! He preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hand of the wicked!" Psalm 97:10

[07/23/20]   "Error always looks like this; it takes our eyes off of Christ and places it on other things."

- Pastor Marc Wragg

[07/21/20]   “There are no ‘little obediences.’ Every opportunity given us by God, either to obey or to disobey, is an opportunity for that character formation and strengthening of faith that can prepare us for the greatest challenges of faith God has in mind for us in the future. Clearly, this was true for Jesus. He had to undergo the trials, testings, sufferings, and afflictions the Father designed for him in order to strengthen and prepare him for the greatest test of his faith imaginable – to accept the Father’s will in going to the cross.”

- Bruce A. Ware

[07/19/20]   "Man finds his greatest significance, his greatest meaning and purpose in God Himself. So then to move away from God is to move away from life, is to move away from one's purpose, is to move to one's own destruction."

- Pastor Marc Wragg

[07/17/20]   "Obedience is most direct when there is nothing else to sweeten the action. Although the sacrifice is imperfect, yet the obedience with which is it offered is accepted. Feeling and freeness of spirit are often reserved until duty is discharged. . . This does not hinder the Spirit's freedom in blowing upon our souls when He pleases . . . As in sailing, the hand must be to the helm and the eye to the star, so here we must put forth that little strength we have to duty and look up for assistance, which the Spirit, as freely as seasonably, will afford."

- Richard Sibbes

[07/05/20]   “Secularization exerts upon the church both passive and active pressure. The pressure is passive in that as society turns away from any semblance of a biblical morality, churches sacrifice confessional conviction on the alter of cultural relevance. But the pressure is also active in that it often makes explicit demands on the church to surrender its essential theological claims.”

- R. Albert Mohler, Jr., "The Gathering Storm: Secularism, Culture, and the Church"

[07/03/20]   “May our minds be granted greater comprehension so that our hearts may be filled with deepened affection.“

- Bruce A. Ware

Saving Grace Bible Church

So true.

"When we’re angry at people and circumstances, we are really lashing out at God’s good providence. Instead of kissing the hand that afflicts us, we’re demanding that God order our lives by our script, our assessment of people, our comfort level."

- Jerry Wragg

[06/28/20]   “The key element to remember for the believer who faces ever-increasing hostility toward the Bible is this: God has preserved His Word over time in fulfillment of His promise to His church. The very same divine power that moved holy men of old to speak from God, resulting in the God-breathed Scriptures, has been providentially active in preserving them from the ravages of the enemies of God’s people. His purposes cannot be thwarted, and one of those purposes includes the presence of His Word in His church, among His people. Given that God’s purposes never fail (Psalm 33:10-11), the one who asserts the corruption of the Word needs to explain why God would allow His Word to be snatched from His people against His will. Very few would even attempt to substantiate such a concept from the pages of the Bible.”

- James R. White

[06/26/20]   "When we’re angry at people and circumstances, we are really lashing out at God’s good providence. Instead of kissing the hand that afflicts us, we’re demanding that God order our lives by our script, our assessment of people, our comfort level."

- Jerry Wragg

[06/17/20]   "Here is the thing about God’s economy. Sin will never be rewarded. It may have temporary excitement, but it leads to destruction."

- Pastor Marc Wragg

[06/13/20]   "It is faith's work to claim and challenge loving-kindness out of all the roughest strokes of God."

- Samuel Rutherford

[05/22/20]   "If you want to be a careful interpreter of Scripture, be sanctified. A life of sanctification makes for a good interpreter of Scripture."

- Abner Chou

[05/17/20]   “The greatest threat to your marriage is self-love.” - Jon Anderson

[05/16/20]   "It's very easy to swing Peter's sword at an insignificant slave. It is very difficult to put on the armor of God and walk in the Spirit of God."

- Pastor Marc Wragg

Sermon
"Responding to Providential Difficulties"
Selected Scriptures
5-10-20
Pastor Marc Wragg

We’re living through disruptive times. Confusion and frustration are breeding suspicion and doubt, and a growing anger is beginning to build as news outlets criticize politicians and conspiracy theories stoke the fires of fear and outrage on social media. In the midst of all of this, how should a Christian respond? Choose now to guard your heart and gird your mind with the truth of God’s Word. The Christian’s fight is not against governments or politicians, but against the flesh. It’s easy to swing Peter’s sword at an insignificant slave. It’s hard to put on the armor of God and walk in the Spirit.

[05/11/20]   “When the people of God, who follow the God of peace, have no peace, there is evidence in their heart that they are drifting away from the One they say they love.”

- Pastor Marc Wragg

[05/10/20]   "Hard preaching makes soft hearts, and soft preaching makes hard hearts."

- John MacArthur
