Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is purgatory? Is purgatory a real place? Pastor Ed’s simple answer is “no” and he goes on to explain the “man-made” belief of purgatory and the Biblical truth dismissing that lie.

Do some denominations/churches believe they will gain God’s favor out of purgatory with payment?

Is purgatory mentioned in the Bible? Pastor Ed says that 1 Corinthians 3:15 is often used by those who believe in purgatory, but it is completely taken out of context.

Can a person pray or pay enough to earn their way into heaven?



PART 2 OF 3 - WHAT’S UP WITH PURGATORY?
Discussed by Pastor Ed Ethridge – Retired
with Truth for You Ministries (www.truthforyou.net/)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

After the rains began and doors on the Ark were closed, did those on the outside have as second chance to repent and be saved?

When the fire rained down on Sodom and Gomorrah, were they given a second chance?

The “Left Behind” series is about giving those left after the rapture a second chance to repent and accept the truth. Is this Biblical? Pastor Ed has studied and taught on the Book of Revelation throughout his many years as a pastor. He says: “Everyone left on earth after the tribulation are lost people. Who’s going to share the Gospel with them?”

Can anyone be drawn to God without the Holy Spirit?




PART 3 OF 3 - WHAT’S UP WITH PURGATORY?
Discussed by Pastor Ed Ethridge – Retired
with Truth for You Ministries (www.truthforyou.net/)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Christians are commanded to correct those who spread false doctrine. Does this include telling others – even those we love – the truth about purgatory?

Too many people think they will go to heaven. How can a person know they are saved and will spend eternity in Heaven? Will everyone be saved? Pastor Ed quotes Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” and Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Why is it so important for Christians to know and understand the True Gospel? Pastor Ed references Ephesians 4:30 “And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption”, reminding us that absolutely nothing can break that seal.

MAKING DISCIPLES
Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 3

Champion Forest advances the Kingdom by making disciples, loving our community, and strengthening the Church.

Pastor Jarrett Stephens continues the series FOCUS this week with a reminder that, as Christians, we are commanded to make disciples of the nations.

What does “discipleship” mean? A developmental process whereby believers intentionally pass on to others what they know, have experienced, and are learning so that others become more like Jesus.

Scripture Passage: Mark 28:18-20

If you have questions about a sermon, please contact Champion Forest at questions@cfbc.org

QUESTIONS / ISSUES DISCUSSED:

What is The Great Commission?

Do you look more like Jesus today than you did yesterday?

Are you passing on the love of Jesus to others around you? 2 Tim 2:2 “And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.” Pastor Jarrett likens this to putting something in a safe deposit box.

What is the best way to disciple someone? (Proverbs 27:17)

Why did Jesus make disciples? Pastor Jarrett explains why Jesus did what he did and gives several examples. He says: “Information without mobilization leads to dead orthodoxy.” WOW! Think about that for a minute…

Will Satan do everything in his power to keep us from discipling others? ABSOLUTELY! Pastor Jarrett likes to say: “Be intentional and keep the main thing the main thing!”

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, text the word JESUS to 77069 and a pastor or counselor from CFBC will call you back.
