Solo Christo


And there is salvation in no one else;For there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.
Acts 4:12

For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,who gave Himself as a ransom for all,the testimony given at the proper time.
1 Timothy 2:5-6

That there is no remedy but in Jesus Christ; there is nothing else will give you true quietness. If you could fly into heaven, you would not find it there; if you should take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the earth, in some solitary place in the wilderness, you could not fly from your burden. So that if you do not come to Christ, you must either continue still weary and burdened, or, which is worse, you must return to your old dead sleep, to a state of stupidity; and not only so, but you must be everlastingly wearied with God's wrath.

Consider that Christ is a remedy at hand. You need not wish for the wings of a dove that you may fly afar off, and be at rest, but Christ is nigh at hand, if you were but sensible of it. Romans 10:6, 7, 8. "But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart; that is, the word of faith which we preach." There is no need of doing any great work to come at this rest; the way is plain to it; it is but going to it, it is but sitting down under Christ's shadow.

Christ requires no money to purchase rest of him, he calls to us to come freely, and for nothing. If we are poor and have no money, we may come. Christ sent out his servants to invite the poor, the maimed, the halt, and the blind. Christ does not want to be hired to accept of you, and to give you rest.

It is his work as Mediator to give rest to the weary, it is the work that he was anointed for, and in which he delights. "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound."

- Jonathan Edwards, Safety, Fulness and Sweet Refreshment in Christ

Quote of the day -

Some wish to live within the sound of a chapel bell; I wish to run a rescue mission within a yard of hell.

Have you shared your faith today?

Thomas Hitton, a poor and pious minister of Kent, used to go frequently to Antwerp to purchase New Testaments. As he was returning from one of these expeditions, in 1529, the bishop of Rochester caused him to be arrested at Gravesend, and put to the cruelest tortures, to make him deny his faith.

But the martyr repeated with holy enthusiasm: “Salvation cometh by faith and not by works, and Christ giveth it to whomsoever he willeth.”

On the 20th of February 1530, he was tied to the stake and there burnt to death.


A painter, named Edward Freese, a young man of ready wit, having been engaged to paint some hangings in a house, wrote on the borders certain sentences of the Scripture.

For this he was seized and taken to the bishop of London’s palace at Fulham, and there imprisoned, where his chief nourishment was bread made out of sawdust.

His poor wife, who was pregnant, went down to Fulham to see her husband; but the bishop’s porter had orders to admit no one, and the brute gave her so violent a kick, as to kill her unborn infant, and cause the mother’s death not long after.


Men and women through the ages have been imprisoned, tortured and died to bring the gospel to the lost.

Have you shared your faith today....this week....this month? People all around us are dying and going to Hell and we have the words of life.

Make it a point to talk to someone about Christ this week ~

Pignic 2010

What's a Pignic?

The Pignic is an event where there will be food, games, music, dancing, crafts and, oh yeah, lots of people!

We have never tried to tract and witness at this event before so we don't quite know what to expect as far as the logistics go. But this event may the last major event taking place in our backyard this year; so we want to be there!

I'm not sure if we can actually be in Heritage Park yet. I don't know if the event will have the entire park grounds or just a section of it. The ideal situation would be that we could still have access to the park and not be inside the event.

God will provide us people to tract and witness to nonetheless -

Here's the plan as of now:

Let's plan to meet Saturday the 16th at 3:45pm at the entrance to the Park between Ingles and the YMCA.

Where: Heritage Park - Canton, Ga.
When: Saturday, October 16th
Time: 3:45pm to ??

Hell - Separation from God?

Quite often we will hear well meaning pastors say in a gospel invitation that Hell is separation from God for all eternity. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Hell will be filled with the very presence of God... His just wrath will abide on sinners for all eternity.

I knew nothing.
I was nothing,
For this reason God picked me out.

Tracts, conversations and breaking the sound barrier in my home town.

We had a team of four come out to the Marble Festival to hand out tracts and participate in one-to-one conversations!

A husband and wife (who are in our current Way of the Master Basic training class) came out to join me and my ministry partner at the Marble Festival today. The weather was perfect; clear blue skies and low humidity made today a great day to reach the lost.

We passed out hundreds and hundreds of tracts and had some great one-to-one conversations.

I was real proud of the husband and wife team as they are getting bolder and bolder in their evangelistic zeal!

Here are some photo's -

This day also marked the first time I open aired in my hometown area.

I was so nervous I thought I was going to fall off my brand new stool my wife had bought me last night. My heart was pumping so hard I thought I was going to die.

I didn't fall.

I didn't die.

God is good.
