1. SPIRITUAL MATTERS

church.family1Isaiah 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”

We are living in a particular time in Christian history, especially in America, when that scripture is especially relevant to our Christian culture as never before.

The Church in America has splintered into “Liberals verses Conservatives, based upon new doctrines that tear apart that which was once considered ‘evil/sin’ is now in many quarters called ‘good,’ and what was once called ‘good’ is now considered ‘evil/sin.’

Standing up for thousands of years of established and accepted biblical standards as to what is sin/evil is now considered to be bigoted, intolerant, and evil by the liberal arm of the Church.

God’s standards about morals, ethics, sin based upon scripture, were universally agreed upon by the common Christian community. But suddenly, Paul’s warning to Timothy leaps off the Bible’s pages into our history::: The Spirit clearly says that in the later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons (1 Tim. 4:1).

Suddenly, to take your stand, with scripture, for what has been accepted by the Christian community for centuries as sin, has become the new evil in the sight of the liberal church. And those who now call evil/sin good are proclaimed the enlightened, loving, tolerant, the image of Christ.

You do know, Christian, SOMEBODY’S WRONG!!

I wonder if you liberal Christians who hold to the ‘new moralities’ think we who hold to several thousand years of once settled morality, do you see us as being the DECEIVED Paul is talking about? Were the millions of Christians of the past being DECEIVED? Were the Westleys or Whitefield of the Methodist church DECEIVED and wrong all those years as to what was and was not sin???

Was John Knox {Presbyterian}, Johnathan Edwards {Congregationalist}, Martin Luther, John Calvin, or Joseph Arminius all DECEIVED????

Was Spurgeon, Moody, Sunday, and Billy Graham, for all his years, SO DECEIVED as to declare ‘good as evil/sin,’ in reference to abortion, practicing homosexuality, and there is ‘only one way to the Father’???

And how you answer those is of a grave “Spiritual Matter,” because: “WOW to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).

Pastor Jerry,
Wasco Church of Christ (Christian)

THANK YOU, FIRE FIGHTERS!

THANK YOU! The staff and board members of the Wasco School Events Center would like to send out a big THANK YOU to the businesses and community members of Sherman County and neighboring counties who were instrumental in the success of our “Back to School Night” fundraiser on Sept. 22, 2018. Also, all of the volunteers who stepped up to help before, during and after – we couldn’t have done it without you. We live in such a giving community!  After expenses, we are thrilled to share that over $5000 were raised from the dinner, silent auction and Wallowa Lake raffle. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  Moving forward, we will continue with the renovations and upkeep of this 100+ year old building that is a landmark for the town of Wasco and Sherman County.  We are hopeful that our fund-raising efforts will also be a benefit to WSEC as we apply for grants in the future.  Again, thank you for your support of the Wasco School Events Center.
