—Do Not Let the “Thief-on-the-Cross” Steal Your Salvation
by David Ray Fanning I
For years people have argued that baptism is not essential for salvation because the thief on the cross was forgiven by Jesus and Jesus did not directly command him to be baptized. “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit” (Col. 2:8)! There are at least three reasons why this argument is not of God:

Homosexuality in the Headlines
News media and popular culture have given bustling attention to homosexuality recently – big names supporting and condemning it, great controversy over personal opinions and Biblical truth, etc. Are your friends, family, co-workers, or classmates asking you about this hot topic? Would you like better grounding in what the scriptures have to say?
Along with the short video above, you can review the full-length half-hour eighth lesson in our Topical Lessons series – Homosexuality and the Bible – or request a DVD or CD hard copy.
Good News From A Far Country
“As cold water to a weary soul,
So is good news from a far country.”
– Proverb 25:25
My husband and myself heard the TGOC from my husband’s elder brother. We obeyed the Gospel and thank God for His wonderful Grace upon us. We were baptised for the forgiveness of our sins. In order to grow in the true grace and knowledge of Christ we are wishing to subscribe to this E news letter. Please pray in your prayers for us and our children and the congregation here.
