Time for You to Know What You Believe

Every couple of years there’s a hot new religious trend that comes along and gets a lot of media attention. Think of the Beatles with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi or Madonna with her Kabbalah mysticism or John Travolta and Kirstie Alley with Scientology. Perhaps people in your family have been drawn to Zen or meditation—or maybe you yourself are fascinated with New Age spirituality.

There are not many truths. There is one. There are not many gods. There is One. God calls all competition idols and quietly promises to destroy them all, as well as all who worship them. This is serious business—Satan uses false gods to lure spiritually minded people away from the Lord to their deaths.

God loves you enough to give you his Word, and he gives you also teachers and pastors and mentors and Christian friends and family to keep you anchored in that Word. Here’s how it benefits you: “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming” (Ephesians 4:14).


Don’t Fear the End: Your Hope of Heaven Is Secure

Everyone fears death on some level. Even if we’re firmly rooted in Christ, there’s so much that’s unknown about what we’ll experience. And then comes judgment, which is another thing that can cause anxiety.

But unless Jesus returns first, death is something we’ll all experience. So we want to help you face death without fear by sending you our new book, Don’t Fear the End: Your Hope of Heaven Is Secure.

This book shows you how to live fearlessly, knowing your assurance comes from Jesus who has secured your salvation from beginning to end.

Don’t Fear the End is our thank-you for your donation to help take the timeless truths of God’s Word to more people all over the world through Time of Grace. Request your copy today!
