In the short chapters of this little book, my effort is to help pastors and Bible teachers fashion gospel arrows for presentation in the pulpit and Bible classes. You must begin with a Bible text that has unity and preach the purpose of the Holy Spirit. Sequence and progress are essential, as well as the use of vehemence and good body language. Penetrating gospel arrows require all this and more.

Churches electing a pastor or elders need confidence that the individuals concerned and the church have God's leading. Acts 20:28 lays the groundwork for experiencing such confidence. When the church follows specific guidelines, the outcome can be that the Holy Spirit has indeed given the church its pastor and elders. This pamphlet points God's people in the direction of this assurance.

Jesus teaches, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” (John 14:15). Since law and grace are compatible, I call this study of the Ten Commandments and the fruit of the Spirit, “The Spiritual Fruit of Law-Abiding Love.” Happily, you will learn that following the Ten Commandments, rules for the game of life, are an expression of your love for God and love for your neighbor.

Price: Free! Words: 4,750. Language: English. Published: October 3, 2016. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Counseling, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Ministry / Discipleship
From a study of Matthew 12:22-32, 1 John 5:16-16, and Hebrews 6:4-6, the unpardonable sin is a single sin, quite visible to the unaided eye, committed only by professing Christians, only in the context of the visible church, involving repudiation of Christ by way of open contempt for and blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. Based on the biblical definition, many other sins cannot be the unpardonable sin.

Evangelical Christianity emphasizes personal evangelism, calling all believers to share their faith in their respective circles of influence. While good fruit certainly results from this emphasis, there is a void in the broader church in communicating a biblically reformed vision for local, church-based evangelism. This void is the need that Pastor Prutow seeks to address and helpfully resolves.
