In it’s 40th year, Tahoe Community Church is looking for it’s 3rd Pastor. We have faith that God will provide us with the right Pastor. If you can help us with this process, please contact us. We are a friendly Reformed Church here in South Lake Tahoe.
Quote from Matt Barber CNN“I’ve just had a chance to finally watch this. I’m a 260-pound former professional boxer and ex-cop who’s sitting here bawling like a baby. This is, bar none, the most compelling and comprehensive piece of its kind. I guess I can’t even say ‘of its kind’ because it’s totally unique. I’ve never seen anything so comprehensive. It’s visually stunning, winsome, compassionate, intellectually unassailable and moving to the extreme. Somehow you managed, in about an hour, to make the case, beyond any reasonable doubt, for the Creator God, and bring it home to the Truth of Christ. This is your masterpiece. Let me know how I can help you get it out far and wide.”

Ray wrote and directed this his first ever movie that isn’t just him lovingly tell the gospel to anyone he happens on the street. His wit, his love. the truth of the gospel all come alive in Audacity. the Subject Homosexuality, the task explain Gods position on Homosexuality. Tahoe Community Church will be hosting a special showing of the movie July 19th at 8pm. It’s a free event and is really thought provoking! True to scripture, Ray clearly and lovingly points out the logic behind God’s commands against Homosexuality.
Daniel and his family join us once a year to worship, when he’s here on vacation, he takes time to preach on the streets. Daniel loves people, we would call him an evangelist, and say he has a gift to evangelizes. According to a survey done by Bill Bright a few years ago, only about 2% of professing Christians share their faith. Do you believe what the bible says about those who face God on judgment day without having their sins paid for by Christ’s act of love on the Cross? Evangelist’s believe, but it’s not really a special gift they are exercising that they have and other believers don’t. We don’t say God has gifted some to hand out food, we say that we are loving our neighbor, it’s love. So if we’re not out sharing God’s love by proclaiming the Gospel, then we’re not loving our neighbor. To evangelize, is to love, so consider going forth with the love of the gospel story, because it’s command to us all to go and make disciples, and disciples make other disciples.

So the idea is this, lets start a conversation with Father John Hollowell in hopes of getting him to see the truth from scripture, Pray For John, and be ready to roll with the counter points he may make in defense of Catholicism. He like many Catholics will most likely refer us to “Catholic Answers” http://www.catholic.com/ This site addresses the finer details to support the Catholic position, and in some cases show reasonable logic, but many time by viewing scripture from a catholic position it will contractions other doctrines….. So here is the origanal vid clip that I want to use as a back drop for a discussion on the following points:
1) “Don’t call any one father”
2) “On Peter I will build my Church” Is Peter the first Pope?
3) “My body is real Food” Transubstantiation
4) “Final Authority” What or who is your final authority?
So here is a clip I’m trying to get Father John Hollowell to watch and respond.
Here is how bible believing followers of the Lord Jesus see the teaching by Jesus, regarding His comments about call anyone Father.
Is doubting a sin? Yes Romans 14:23
But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat, because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.
So if I my doubting undermines my faith, and faith is what I need to be saved, won’t my doubting send be to hell? Nope! John 19:30
When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
The fact the doubting is just another one of many sins the Christ dies for, we are covered, it is the complete work of Christ’s love on the cross. Even though the sin of doubt faces off squarely with the promises of Jesus it can’t undue the work of the cross.
Pray for those who heard and were given the Gospel on the 4th of July…
Join us in reading the book of 1st John on the Fourth of July weekend! Gather some Christian friends, find a public place with good foot traffic or where people gather (picnics, parades, parks, fireworks displays, etc.), climb up onto a box, ladder, or bench, and read the scripture aloud. Then, using the text you have read, transition into a gospel presentation. It’s easier than you think, and 1st John is a great book for it. Then come back here, and let us know how it went!
