Building an unshakeable faith
July 10, 2012
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel... But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.
It's an unfortunate reality today tht many men and women in our churches are being swept away by false teachings. Whether it's the newest self-help guru or another method of “spiritual enlightenment,” many people simply want to follow another gospel, which is not the Gospel at all.
I think I know why so many Christians fall for everything that comes along. It's because they’ve never consciously chosen and made decisions regarding the convictions of their lives. They've never set up a set of non-negotiables and said, "Here's where I refuse to compromise."
And rather than being governed by the Word of God, these people are governed by the system of the world and anything it throws at them. They're susceptible and vulnerable because their commitment has not been made, and their faith is missing a firm foundation.
It's time we as Christians make commitments to Christ. It's time today to make the choice to commit and stand on principle when it comes to not negotiating on our faith. Don't let the world sweep you away. Instead, stand firmly on the Gospel and you'll never be put to shame!
LAY THE FOUNDATION FOR AN UNSHAKEABLE FAITH BY IDENTIFYING AREAS WHERE YOU REFUSE TO COMPROMISE.

Face the future with hope!
We live in uncertain times—with global economic problems, the threat of terrorism, natural disasters, and violence around the world. But as Christians, you and I can walk into the future with confidence and courage because God has given us hope! And He has provided a clear picture of these last days in His Word.
I’ll take you right to the heart of Israel in Israel 2011—to the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Olives and more—to help you walk the footsteps of Jesus Himself and see how this wonderful land plays a part in the last days. And Signs of the Times will show you how you can be ready for Christ’s return.
These two resources are my gifts to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint Ministries continue to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. I pray they will strengthen your faith!
