PASTOR'S STUDY NEWSLETTER
- Nov. 8, 2017
DECEMBER/JANUARY PASTOR’S STUDY NEWSLETTER
Dear Friends of The Pastor’s Study,
Not to be doom and gloom but I must ask the question: Is God judging America? I don’t remember in my lifetime so many horrendous hurricanes, wildfires and especially mass shootings as in this past year. Yes, there have always been natural disasters and Jesus taught us not to believe that they mean the end (Matthew 24:6-8). But it is also true that God judges a nation which turns its back on Him, and America has been doing that for years. Our high abortion rate, the fact that the US is the world’s major producer of pornography and now our endorsement of homosexual “marriage” are all signs that we have turned our back on God, who has been so tremendously good to America. Jesus said “To whom much is given, much shall be required” (Luke 12:48). America has been given so much by the Almighty, which makes our rejection of Him so grievous.
What are we as Christians to do as we see our nation drift further from the Lord? May I offer a few New Year’s resolutions that I believe are from the Prince of P.E.A.C.E?
P. Pray regularly for our government. The Bible instructs us to do so (I Timothy 2:1-2). Pray, pray, pray.
E. Evangelize. The word “evangel” means “Good News” in the New Testament. When bad news happens all around us, seize that as an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus with people. Give the enclosed Christmas tract to someone or read it to your family before you open presents or have your Christmas meal.
A. Adore. Spend time praising God everyday. This will keep us positive and joyous. My nightly habit is to praise God for five things that He did for me that day.
C. Call. When you see something horrible on TV, call the station and complain. I too can get overwhelmed and think “What good will it do?” But I can’t let that paralyze me into doing nothing. I often pick up the phone or write an email to a network (just google, for instance, “CBS complaints” and you’ll get an email address).
E. Enjoy the Lord! The best advertisement for the Christian faith is a joyous Christian. As things fall apart and decay around us, maintain your Christian joy by being part of a good Christian church. Now and then I get a letter that says “Pastor Brock, I don’t go to church, your TV show is my church.” No, it isn’t. We are commanded to be part of a Christian church (Hebrews 10:25). If you are not worshipping weekly, make that a high priority in 2018.
One last thing, a plea. The Pastor’s Study has hit a slump in our finances and must decide if we need to cut back on our program. Currently we are on nationally on the Christian Television Network (for those with DirecTV and Dish Network) and also on locally in Minneapolis, Rochester, Duluth, the Quad Cities, Bismarck, Wichita, Sioux Falls and Phoenix. We would love to stay on in all these areas. We desire to expand and not cut back. Would you consider giving a monthly contribution to The Pastor’s Study as we begin 2018? Or would you perhaps give a one-time, year-end gift to help us spread the Gospel of Christ? The Pastor’s Study is overseen by a board of committed Christians who make sure your money goes where it is supposed to go and we are very careful with peoples’ donations. Please pray for our ministry and give as the Lord leads.
Have a great Christmas and New Year in Christ!
Pastor Tom Brock
WHAT WE BELIEVE:
We believe in the Triune God, the one God who exists in three eternal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Son became a man (Jesus), died for our sins and rose from the dead and through Him alone one can receive the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. We affirm the substitutionary atonement of Christ, namely, that Jesus lived a perfect life and suffered the wrath of God in our place to make payment for the sins of mankind. We affirm Christ’s bodily resurrection from the dead. We believe that faith in Christ is necessary for salvation and those without Christ will not be saved (John 14:6). We believe we are saved by the unmerited grace of God and not by our good deeds. We believe that good deeds are the evidence of our faith.
We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, the highest authority to which the Christian submits. All theology, morality, teaching and opinion should be judged by the Holy Scriptures. We reject attempts to rewrite Scripture to eliminate masculine references for God. We view pre-marital sex, abortion, and homosexual behavior as inconsistent with God’s Word. We believe there is forgiveness for these sins, and all sin, through repentance and faith in Christ.
To set people free by preaching the truth of Christ for the salvation of the lost and for the correction and edification of the Church.
People will be set free and the Church will be edified through our television and radio programs, through the internet, through our literature, and through speaking/preaching engagements and seminars.
