San Francisco's Attempt to Ban Circumcision

Gen 17:9 Then God said to Abraham, "As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come. 10 This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You are to undergo circumcision , and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you. 12 For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised, including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner — those who are not your offspring. 13 Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant. 14 Any uncircumcised male, who has not been circumcised in the flesh, will be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant."

It is quite obvious from the passage above that the attempted ban on circumcision in San Francisco is an attack on God and the cov…

The Passing of Harold Camping's Judgment Day

Today is Sunday May 22nd and it is no to surprise to most Christians that we are still here. The rapture has not yet taken place. Harold Camping spent millions of dollars warning the world that Judgment Day was coming on May 21 at 6:00pm. Today, he and his followers have to face the fact that his message was not true.

We already knew that the Scripture says no man knows the day or hour when Christ will come for his church.
Matt 25:13 "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour."

Luke 12:40 "You also must be ready , because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."
Mr. Camping had ways around explaining these passages, but that is what every false teacher does. They take a clear teaching of Scripture and argue it away. We have said it before and it bears repeating now. When interpreting a passage of Scripture always remember, if the plain text makes perfect sense, then seek no other sense.

While the rapture has not yet …

Guided By Truth Blog

Guided By Truth has been through many changes over the past couple of years and we have lost some help that we had in the past. We are hoping that by moving to the blog format, we will be able to update you more frequently.

You will find that during our transition all of our old resources remain up in their original format. You may use the links to the side to access the old menus by topic or by searching the archives.

We hope you will find these changes beneficial and will enjoy reading our blog posts about various topics affecting the church. Thanks for being patient with us we make these changes.

Please be patient as these changes are being implemented. There may be times where the site is unavailable or not functioning correctly as the transition process takes place. We will try to make the transition as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

Can a believer's name be blotted out of the book of life?

We had an email question from a reader which asked about whether or not our names can be blotted out of the lamb's book of life. Below is the question and our response.

"I am a believer (has accepted Christ). I used to believe as you that once saved always saved. And I think I still DO believe that. However, recently, a man a work who belongs to Assembly of God church tells me that we can lose our salvation and have our names blotted out of the lambs book of life. He says that if you are back-slidden and don' repent you will NOT go to heaven, and that you WILL LOSE your salvation. He states Revelation 17:8 and Revelation 3:5 pertaining to "those blotted out" are believers, otherwise their names would not have been written in the book. Please decipher this message for me. Now, all of a sudden, I feel that I have lost the joy of my salvation and am extremely worried that sins I have committed or am going to will make me lose salvation"
I am not…
