Two Rooms

by Brian Mills

“And when the Spirit comes, He will convict the world of sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment.” John 16:8 One of the principle things which distinguishes a regenerate person from an unregenerate one, may be likened unto two filthy rooms.

Church Entertainment

Whatever means you use to get people into the church is precisely what you must use to keep them. If you get them with a ‘religious circus’, then you must keep the circus going–keep up the entertainment.

God Hems Me In

by Brian Mills

“Blessed be the LORD, who has . . . restrained His servant from doing evil.” –1 Samuel 25:39 Even when my heart is resolute in its pursuit of iniquity, God hampers and hinders its unholy determination. Mercifully, that He may halt me in my fatal course–He raises one barrier after another. For example, there is His […]
