.
MP3 Available Here

DAVID CHANSKI, successor of Albert N. Martin at Trinity Baptist Church of Montville, NJ will address the theme: "CHURCH DISCIPLINE".

When he graduated from Trinity Ministerial Academy, Pastor David Chanski moved from the northern New Jersey area. Since 1989, he has served the Lord as Pastor of the Providence Reformed Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Now, nearly 20 years after his departure, Pastor Chanski, with his wife and two of his children, has returned to Trinity Baptist Church to serve as one of their elders.

Trinity Baptist Church of Montville may be the most well known Reformed Baptist congregation on the globe. The church first organized in March 1967. They embrace the great biblical doctrines of the Protestant Reformation, sometimes referred to as the doctrines of grace and most fully expressed in the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689.

Their purpose as a church is "to glorify the God of the Scriptures in promoting His worship, evangelizing sinners, edifying saints, planting and strengthening churches, and showing benevolence to the needy. We are committed to the proclamation of God's perfect Law and the glorious Gospel of His grace throughout the world, and to the defense of the 'faith which was once for all delivered to the saints'."

Deborah Howard: A CHRISTIAN NURSE REFLECTS ON FINDING GOD's PURPOSE IN OUR SUFFERING

.
MP3 Available Here

Deborah Howard, RN, CHPN (Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse), and author of "WHERE IS GOD IN ALL OF THIS", will address the theme: "A CHRISTIAN NURSE REFLECTS ON FINDING GOD's PURPOSE IN OUR SUFFERING".

Deborah and her husband, Theron, live near Little Rock, Arkansas, where she divides her time between writing, lecturing and working as a hospice nurse. She has worked in various nursing fields. However, it was when she found hospice care that she discovered her nursing passion. She views her work with hospice as a personal ministry that has given her great satisfaction. "Many people tell me they don't see how I could love this particular field of nursing," she says, "but I tell them it is a most rewarding profession. At the end of every day, I go home knowing, with absolute certainty, that I've made a significant difference in someone's life." Deborah is a versatile musician and an avid tennis player and tennis official. She enjoys the arts, reading, decorating, gardening, movies, word games, cooking and spending time with friends and family. She is a member of the Bible Church of Little Rock and treasures her time in the study of God's word, both corporately and personally.

Today our guest Deborah Howard takes a biblical look at the ways God uses suffering to mold us as He intends us to be. We should see our sufferings through a spiritual lens and respond in godly ways.

Her book "Where is God in All of this" offers 15 reasons why God brings suffering our way. Being a hospice nurse, Deborah has not written her book from a ‘safe’ theoretical perspective. You can reach Deborah at her web site:

RICHARD BENNETT: DARWINIAN EVOLUTION & THE CHURCH OF ROME (Encore Presentation)

.
MP3 Available Here

RICHARD BENNETT, a former Roman Catholic priest for over 20 years who is now a believer in the Gospel of Free and Sovereign Grace and a Bible-believing Christian apologist, author and popular conference speaker, will address the theme: "DARWINIAN EVOLUTION & THE CHURCH OF ROME".

Evolutionism remains one of the major tools of Satan and his cohorts to disparage biblical faith. As the atheistic world celebrates 150 years of Darwinism, Papal Rome’s use of this divisive issue to its own advantage is of grave concern to us in the 21st century. Today Richard Bennett will discuss the Roman Catholic Church's promotion of Evolutionism, and its exclusion of the God of Creation..

Richard hails from Ireland, where he was trained by Jesuits in his early years. He then received eight years of theological instruction and preparation for the priesthood with the Dominicans, completing his education at the Angelicum University in Rome in 1964. He spent twenty-one years as a Roman Catholic parish priest in Trinidad W. I. He had, therefore, the best of academic training in things Catholic, plus twenty-one years of being a parish priest applying Catholic teachings to everyday life. After a serious accident in 1972, in which he nearly lost his life, he began to study seriously the Bible. After fourteen years of contrasting Catholicism to Biblical truth, he was convicted by the Gospel message in 1986. He was then saved by God’s grace alone, and formally left the Roman Catholic Church and its priesthood. He has founded an evangelistic ministry to Catholics called “Berean Beacon” (http://www.bereanbeacon.org/).

JUSTIN PETERS: A CALL FOR DISCERNMENT: A Biblical Critique of the WORD OF FAITH MOVEMENT

.
MP3 Available Here


JUSTIN PETERS, an ordained Baptist minister, evangelist & conference speaker, will address the theme: "A CALL FOR DISCERNMENT: A Biblical Critique of the WORD OF FAITH MOVEMENT."

Justin Peters is a staff evangelist at
First Baptist Church in Vicksburg, Mississippi . Justin created Justin Peters Ministries to fulfill God's call on his life of full-time ministry.

The influence of two loving Christian parents coupled with the challenges of Cerebral Palsy led Justin to begin inquiring about salvation at an early age. Shortly after a visit with his then pastor, Dr. John G. McCall, God graciously saved Justin at age seven. God's call on Justin's life to vocational ministry came in November 1995 while attending
Mississippi State University .

Throughout his years as a student at
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, Justin studied at great depth the Word of Faith movement. The thesis he wrote for his Master’s of Theology (Th.M.) degree is entitled "An Examination and Critique of the Life, Ministry and Theology of Healing evangelist Benny Hinn".

In addition to his academic research, Justin also has attended numerous Benny Hinn crusades and has been witness first hand to the harm, both physical and spiritual, that the Word of Faith movement inflicts upon so many. As a teenager, Justin himself attended faith-healing services in hopes of being delivered from his Cerebral Palsy. Though the potential was there to shake his faith in the Lord, in the long run, these experiences had the opposite effect. Says Justin:

"Some have made the charge against me that I am just bitter about not being healed. I can assure you that nothing could be further from the truth. Next to my salvation, my Cerebral Palsy is one of the greatest gifts (an imperfect word to be sure) God has ever allowed me to have. He has used it to keep me dependent upon Him and through it has shown me His 'sufficient grace' and “strength made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:9)

In 2004, Justin was featured as an expert witness for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s documentary on Benny Hinn entitled "
Do You Believe In Miracles?".

In 2006 Justin was interviewed for the documentary entitled "Suffer the Children" produced by Trevor Glass. This documentary shows the profound harm, both physical and spiritual, that the Prosperity gospel inflicts upon so many.

In addition to expository preaching, another aspect of Justin's ministry is the three session seminar which he has developed entitled "A CALL FOR DISCERNMENT: A BIBLICAL CRITIQUE OF THE WORD OF FAITH MOVEMENT". This seminar is a fair, comprehensive, biblical critique of the modern Word of Faith movement. Word of Faith theology (WoF) dominates Christian satellite and cable television and is making alarming inroads into our Baptist churches. This seminar contains dozens of audio and video clips (primarily the latter) of various WoF leaders such as Benny Hinn, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Jessie Duplantis, Creflo Dollar, etc. incorporated into a PowerPoint format. This format allows people to see and hear for themselves what these individuals are actually teaching. Everything then is, in turn, balanced with Scripture.

This seminar is being conducted at
CENTEREACH BIBLE CHURCH on Long Island June 19-21, 2009. PASTOR SCOTT KRANIAK of Centereach Bible Church is co-hosting today's broadcast.

DAVID SITTON: BRINGING THE GOSPEL TO THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER HEARD OF CHRIST

.
MP3 Available Here

DAVID SITTON, President of To Every Tribe Ministries , will address the theme: "BRINGING THE GOSPEL TO THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER HEARD OF CHRIST".

The vision of To Every Tribe Ministries is to bring the gospel to those hard-to-get-to places where the name of Jesus has never been heard so God will be worshiped by every tribe, and tongue.

In January, 1977, our guest David Sitton arrived at The School of World Evangelism in College Station, Texas.

Within weeks, David encountered a radical pioneer missionary to Papua New Guinea, Joe Cannon. Joe was on a mission; He was looking for young missionaries to join him on the unreached front lines of New Guinea.

Sauntering into the classroom with bows, arrows, spears, and bird feather head dresses jutting out from his hands and the Melanesian Pidgin language spouting out of his mouth. Joe was tall, lanky and loud. He bounced when he walked and was quick to laugh at his own (corny) jokes. He was eager to give the students a little taste of New Guinea culture and language. Joe proceeded to give a passionate plea that some of the students would turn their attention to the unreached, interior tribes of Papua New Guinea.

Between classes, one afternoon, Joe cornered David with a text and a question.

The text was Romans 15:20.
“I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on someone else’s foundation, but as it is written, ‘Those who have never been told of him will see, and those who have never heard will understand.”

The question was personal and to the point! “Brother, there are whole tribes of people in New Guinea that have never, ever heard the name of Jesus. Some of them are cannibals and headhunters; some of them have bones through their noses and wear grass skirts. Many of them are wild and reckless and dangerous people. But they need the gospel of Christ!”

“Come with me, brother. I will teach you. I can mentor you. There are not many who will go with me into the jungles and rugged mountains to find them. Come with me, brother. Let’s go get some of them for Jesus.”

David’s life was set on a course for mission from that moment.

Eight months later, just one week after his 20th birthday, David left for Papua New Guinea – October 3, 1977. He departed Corpus Christi with a suitcase, a bible, and a surfboard!

Several of the early tribes David encountered did indeed practice cannibalism and were entrenched in violent tribal warfare. Even so, Joe and David (and a few others) endured much hardship to get the gospel established among these remote mountain tribes. Churches still remain in most of these places today.

In 1979, David returned to Texas. God was gracious and quick with his answer to David’s prayer for a wife! Within months he met, courted and married (June 27, 1980) Tommi Anne Moses from Harlingen, Texas. Theirs was the first wedding ever performed at the Chapel By The Sea on South Padre Island.

Over the next decade, David and Tommi worked together to make disciples and plant churches in remote regions of the highlands and swamplands of Papua New Guinea. A government problem with visa renewals in 1990 prevented the Sittons from returning to PNG to live.

From 1990 -1993, David served as director of The Institute of Tribal Studies, a ministry of the U.S. Center for World Mission located in Pasadena, CA. In 1993, David and Tommi relocated to the South Texas town of Los Fresnos, strategically situated just fifteen minutes from the Mexican border.

34 churches have been established through this ministry since 1977.

These days, David continues church-planting and leadership training in Papua New Guinea through regular short-term ministry trips and travels extensively speaking at many churches and mission conferences around the world. A prominent theme in his preaching is that fame of Jesus’ Name will be brought to the remaining unreached peoples through the persecution and frequent martyrdom of those that carry the gospel message.

David and Tommi founded To Every Tribe Ministries where he currently serves as president. They also founded The Center for Pioneer Church Planting, which began in January, 2006. This missionary training program is dedicated to recruiting, training and launching pioneer church planters into the far-flung regions where Christ is still unknown.

Moreover, Tommi is a precious helpmate to David. All who know Tommi recognize her sacrificial service to the To Every Tribe community and her invaluable encouragement and assistance in nearly every aspect of the ministry.

WILLIAM POSS: JACOB I LOVED, ESAU I HATED: God's Election of the Younger Son

.
MP3 Available Here

WILLIAM POSS, co-pastor of Bread of Life Fellowship, a Reformed Baptist congregation in Haledon, NJ will address the theme: "JACOB I LOVED, ESAU I HATED: God's Election of the Younger Son".

Our topic today involves one of the most controversial and most hotly debated passages found within the many pages of the Holy Scriptures, Romans 9:10-18:

"...when Rebecca had conceived children by one man, our forefather Isaac, though they were not yet born and had done nothing either good or bad - in order that God's purpose of election might continue, not because of works but because of his call - she was told, 'The older will serve the younger.' As it is written, 'Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated.' What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God's part? By no means! For he says to Moses, 'I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.' So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, 'For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.' So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills..."

The above theme is also the topic of a sermon to be preached by our guest, William Poss, at the Sovereignty of God Conference, June 22-24, sponsored by the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and hosted by Bread of Life Fellowship in Haledon, NJ. For conference details
visit this link.

Having relocated from New Jersey to Southern California in the 1980's, William Poss was called to the music ministry at a church in Palos Verdes. Returning to New Jersey in 1990, he began teaching at the Arise and Shine Academy.

In 2004, Bill became an elder at Bread of Lilfe Fellowship where he is presently ministering in the word.

HAMZA ABDUL MALIK & DAVID WOOD: QUR'AN ONLY MUSLIMS: Muslims at Odds with the Majority of those Professing Islam (Part 3)

.
MP3 Available Here

HAMZA ABDUL MALIK, a convert from Christianity to Islam, and DAVID WOOD, a convert from Atheism to Christianity, will address "QUR'AN ONLY MUSLIMS: Muslims at Odds with the Majority of those Professing Islam".

The first two parts of this live discussion took place on Tuesday, June 2 (MP3 Available Here ) & Wednesday, June 3 (MP3 Available Here ).

According to our "Qur'an Only" Muslim guest, Hamza Abdul Malik:

"Many sectarian Muslims, such as Sunnis, Shiites, Ahmadiyya, etc., Arabs included, read the Qur'aan but few really stop to see what it means. Even fewer really follow the Qur'aan. When discussing their "religion" very few Muslims quote any verses from the Qur'aan.

"It is a fact that nothing the Muslim does in his or her practice of the "religion" can be traced exactly back to the Qur'aan, not one thing. Rituals such as the Shahadatain, the five daily prayers, fasting, pilgrimage, zakat, hijab, etc., do not follow exactly what is written in the Qur'aan, but have their origins in sources other than the Qur'aan.

"The Qur'aan condemns them for their actions by stating:

" 'And when it is said to them, Come to that which Allah has revealed (Al-Qur'aan) and to the Messenger, they say: Sufficient for us is that wherein we found our fathers. What! even though their fathers knew nothing and had no guidance!' (Q.5:104)

"The question then becomes: what is the purpose of the Qur'aan in the life of a practicing Muslim?..."

HAMZA ABDUL MALIK was raised as a Christian and reverted to Islam in 1970. He has committed himself to the study of Comparative Religion for the past 35 years. Mr. Malik has a special interest in New Testament theology and the historical Jesus, his person and his mission. In 1988, Mr. Malik was co-instructor of an international Da'wah Course sponsored by the International Propagation Center, Inc. (IPCI) of Durban. Mr. Malik is a skilled debater and has engaged in Christian-Muslim dialogue and debates in many cities in the United States and abroad. He has conducted numerous lectures and seminars on the study of Comparative Religion as a tool for Da'wah.


DAVID WOOD has become fondly known as "Iron Sharpens Iron's Resident Apologist to the Muslims". David is a Teaching Fellow in Philosophy at Fordham University . A former atheist, David converted to Christianity based on the historical evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus. David now debates both atheists and Muslims and is co-director of
Acts 17 Apologetics Ministries, an organization he founded with Nabeel Qureshi, a convert from Islam to Christianity.

He is devoted to the Solas of the Protestant Reformation and the doctrines of God's sovereign grace.

The ministry of Red Mills Baptist Church and Pastor Harrison is extended beyond the Mahopac area through the publishing of various articles and booklets, Red Mills' sermon tape ministry, seminars and conferences, and occasional radio appearances. Pastor Harrison also serves on the Executive Committee of the
CB Spurgeon Fellowship , a group of Conservative Baptist pastors who are committed to the doctrines of grace and seek to act as a voice calling the church back from its love affair with the church growth movement to a renewed confidence in the sufficiency of Scripture.
