Pennsylvania Senate Candidate Kathy Barnette Sets the Record Straight
"But Kathy, I like you. I've known you for, I don't know, 6, 7 years ever since you came on Fox with a national security moms. And so I've spoken about the latest attacks against you with somebody who served in the military in the reserves and knows these records. So I want to give you an opportunity in front of millions of people to answer these questions, put them to bed and then we'll see who wins this race. So in the records that you've released from your campaign yesterday in a book about you, there are questions as to officer candidacy school. What your MOS was two months of additional federal service that we don't know what it was for, whether you actually worked for the CID or were of VO a wheeled vehicle mechanics. I want to just give you the opportunity. Talk about your military record and clarify anything that you think needs clarification. Yeah, listen, my military records are right there in front of people now. Yesterday, let me just say, I've been running for 13 months. And only yesterday did mainstream media want to even talk to me. And I've been in a statistical tie for first place for at least four weeks, right? So for at least four weeks, I should have been on their radar, except they just wanted to talk about the two rich men and pretend there was no one else in this race. So the only people who have been derelict in their duty here has been mainstream media because I've been here for 13 months and at least in a statistical tie for first place for the last four weeks. But in regards to my military records, I served three years in the army reserves and I was assigned to the CID, the criminal investigation detachment. My MOS was 71 Lima when I came out as a administrative specialist three years there moved back to Alabama and third with the National

Fresh update on "army" discussed on The Christian Science Monitor Daily
"The collapse of Afghanistan last August left the world reeling. How had more than 20 years of investment have been so quickly undone? On Wednesday, the United States special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction. Released its investigation. And I talked with our frequent contributor on global security issues and about it. The main takeaway Anna says is that the collapse of Afghan security forces was foreseeable and foreseen. The Taliban were adept at exploiting the situation, but the failure happened well before the advance on Kabul. How did so much money and effort do so little? Here are four reasons. First, corruption. No significant inroads were ever made. The war in Ukraine offers a counterpoint. Ana notes that one reason the Ukrainian army has held up so well is that significant efforts were made in recent years to address corruption. Second, a hierarchy. Ukraine shows how NATO training can work. But crucially in a notes, that training has empowered mid level officers to make flexible decisions on the battlefield. In Afghanistan, training was never able to break down persistent hierarchies. Third, falling expectations. When it became apparent that Afghan units were not progressing, U.S. trainers simply changed the bar to essentially make that acceptable. The focus was more on numbers than quality. And fourth, secrecy. The U.S. almost completely cut Afghan officials out of its peace negotiations with the Taliban. Many Afghans felt the U.S. was effectively handing the country over to the Taliban upon its withdrawal. That was toxic to morale and became a self fulfilling prophecy. The report concludes that the U.S. didn't have the will to do the hard work that needed to be done. For Anna's part, she saw so many smart minds who were applying themselves to fixing this. But the lack of trust and honesty gave it no real foundation. Now, today's stories. Our first story, if war shows humanity at its worst. Those who respond to others suffering with bravery and selflessness as Constantine gadowski did evacuating civilians in Ukraine, offer and inspiring counterpoint. Igor Poe Claude and his wife svetlana were trapped in the basement of their summer home in vorsel outside Kyiv. They were running out of supplies and hope. Russia had invaded, and the fighting was intense, electricity was cut, the water stopped, phone signals weakened. Then, house to house, the shooting began. Turning vorsel into a zone of horror, much like neighboring puja. When we heard a gun shoot, we knew someone was being killed, svetlana polkadot recalls in an interview in akiva park. Still, exhibiting signs of stress. Help came in the person of Constantine, kudos. Dubbed the angel of Warsaw by some of those he rescued. Day after day for weeks with the help of volunteers who provided bread and cigarettes to buy off Russian troops. Mister goudal brazenly crossed battle lines to ferry more than 200 civilians to safety. He was interrogated at checkpoints, stripped to his underwear and felt the cold muzzle of a Russian rifle prodding the back of his head. I was asked by the Russians all the time, aren't you afraid to die, mister gadowski recalls? I told them. I'm afraid to die doing nothing. This story was reported by Scott Peterson in Kyiv, Ukraine, for the monitor. From.
How the Addition of Finland and Sweden Would Change NATO
"NATO is about to expand to Finland and Sweden. You were the allied supreme commander of NATO. Are you going like this? Hooray, we got the fans in or are you saying, oh my God, the finished border with Russia expands my theater of operations by 50%. It is two thumbs up. And if I had other thumbs to offer, I would make them. We have got to get the fins in the Swedes in to NATO. That big border is a tactical and strategic advantage for NATO. It allows us to move our bases our troops are jets up into that northern Flank. It gives us real purchase into the Arctic. It is a very significant chunk of real estate. We want it. So geography matters. Number two, these are warfighting nations combined their defense budget is around 15 billion. That's about a fourth of the Russian defense budget. So we're adding real money and resources and then finally hue, the Finns have a big army. They have the largest number of artillery pieces in Europe.

Ukraine Has Repelled Russia's Attempt to Cross Donbas River
"There is a story in the telegraph of Great Britain today. An entire battalion and again, I am not, I'm a civilian civilian, meaning I don't even know how to spell civilian, much less anything going on in the army. And the Russian army. But I know that when a battalion gets wiped out, trying to cross a river, that's not good for morale. So they tried to cross the river. It's in the telegraph, I tweeted it out. You should be following me on Twitter. And they got pushed back 20 clicks from 30 clicks, which in my mind I quickly estimate to be about 18 miles because the ten K is 6.2 miles and so 30 clicks must be about 18.6 miles. So Ukraine's are pushing back the Russians all over the place. They're in a static front in the Donbass, which is, you know, I couldn't draw the Donbass on a map. I know where Ukraine and Russia is, but it's part of Ukraine. And I couldn't get it right now where it is roughly. It doesn't get to Odessa. And only a part not a God, this is from the financial time. Military briefing can Ukraine push the Russian army from the country. Even that being written is something that's extraordinary.
The Rise of Leon Trotsky & Communism
"Trotsky was perhaps the most intellectual of the bunch Of the communist revolutionaries that overthrew and took over Russia The truth is they never had even close to majority of the population behind them About 20% They didn't even have a majority of the quote unquote workers behind them And even though a number of them would serve time in Siberia the fact is that their efforts were not taken seriously enough until it was too late Trotsky was among the most vicious of them but they were all quite vicious When Lennon took over as I said he would soon get 6 relatively shortly thereafter Stalin would eventually replace Lenin through a number of connivance and assassinations and Trotsky would originally become the head of the military The Red Army but he fell out of favor Because he had a different ideological view of Marxism than did Stalin Stalin's view was more akin to a strong man and a single political party the Communist Party which would be the state the party is the state And that party would be a permanent fixture That would in essence ensure that the Marxist economic system and all the rest of it would be enshrined and be complied with
K. T. McFarland: How Does Putin Read the Current Conflict?
"KT and I talk every Friday we talk national security. We talk Trump. We talk scotch. One thing we haven't talked about. I'm looking at a post of yours online. It's as Biden once regime change. U.S. Intel brags about targeting Russian generals for Ukraine kills. Lindsey Graham and sis on Putin's unconditional surrender. They may be right, but they are unintentionally goading Putin into expanding the war, question mark. Let's talk about that for a second. Putin doesn't look stable. These things may be the kind of finger in the chest things that set them off. What do you think, KT? Yeah. It's not what's right or what's just. It's what's likely to happen. Should Ukraine win? Yes. Should Russia lose shift? Should Putin be kicked out of absolutely. But what's likely to happen? Lindsey Graham says, well, there's no negotiated solution that we want. It's either unconditional surrender. But how does Putin read this? He reads it a couple of ways. One, he's been in power so long that he identifies himself as Russia. So when somebody says regime change and when it looks like they're helping target Russian generals, he looks at that as an assault against the Russian homeland. And for that, the Russian vaccine says you can use whatever weapons you want. Weapons of asset strikes and nuclear weapons is if somebody is coming after the Russian homeland. And number two, who knows how stable he is. He's been, he's made miscalculations throughout. This is a different Vladimir Putin. So 20 years, he's really had a very bad hand at poker, but he's played it really well. This is the first time that he's miscalculated on his army on Ukrainian resistance. What would happen with NATO? And so he's now facing a very sort of back up against the wall position.
David McCormick Enjoys Grassroots Campaigning in Pennsylvania
"You think you have a pretty good ground game because in the end that's what I think it's going to take I think I do Yeah the reason I say that is I think we've recruited great folks in every county And my approach to this from the very first day when we talked was I've had a lot of media and ads on TV but I have literally been in this damn pickup truck And I've put 25,000 miles on it I've driven down diners Today I did two diners a coffee shop a VFW and those stops are where you get the word of mouth You get the local media hits And you begin to build out this army of volunteers So I feel good about it But this is my first time running So when I feel like I get in a room and talk to people I feel like they're responding I feel like they're taking my message and I feel like I'm leaving with her vote But we got a long way to go This is how a lot of politicians who were really first time runners they weren't politicians to begin with This is how many of them get elected you know Going and doing the kind of grassroots meeting people speaking to people small groups churches restaurants and diners and so forth This is how many of them have gotten elected And so this is your plan I take it This is my plan And you know you learn I've never run for anything So you learn pretty quickly whether you like it And I like it Every day I meet somebody who inspires
Judicial Watch's Chris Farrell Describes His Credentials
"Is the director of research and investigations for that superlative organization judicial watch. Chris Farrell, welcome in studio. Great to be with you, Seth. Thank you. You've been on the show multiple times. You've been on my newsmax show for those who are just accidentally tuning in now or have found us on Salem TV. Would you just for a couple of seconds talk about your national security credentials, what you did in uniform before you joined your judicial watch. I was commissioned as a military intelligence officer in the U.S. Army, specifically as a counterintelligence officer. And I served in that role doing mostly counter espionage work, investigations, running double agent operations and also commanding the army's surveillance team. We did physical technical and aerial surveillance of counterintelligence suspects, but also in support of clandestine human intelligence operations. I then went on to actually cross strain and besides being a can respond to case officer. I became a clandestine human intelligence case officer. And so I have a foot in each world in the world of human intelligence, both countering bad guys who are trying to spy against us, but then also in their field of human intelligence, which is us trying to have persons from foreign countries provide intelligence to U.S. to U.S.

Radical Left Organizations Encourage the Targeting of SCOTUS Homes
"Yesterday we talked about the group rise up for abortion, which is really just a front for a shadowy revolutionary Communist Party group. A Maoist organization founded in the 60s by bob, avakian. Now, interestingly enough, some on the left don't like that group because they call it a cult. Which seems very apropos. Now, another group that's actually getting probably more attention because they were the ones that actually doxxed the 5 out of the 6 conservative justices, Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, is a group called Ruth sent us. Ruth sent us is asking activists to target Supreme Court Justices who may overturn roe V roe V wade with demonstrations at their private homes. Now, can we just state it? As a simple, clean fact here that you should not protest at private homes. You should not confront or get in their faces as Maxine water says, when people are out in public with their families, this is not appropriate. If you don't like somebody, you vote them out of office. If you don't like somebody, you can go on Twitter and say something mean and nasty to them. That's fine. And there might actually be free speech on Twitter moving forward with Elon Musk taking down. You do not, and I repeat, again, do not protest at private homes. I think it's just important to say that it's idiotic. It's stupid. If you're a conservative and you're considering protesting in front of, I don't know, justice Kagan's house because you think it's respect that she or one of her clerks were the leaker. Don't do it. Stop. It looks bad.
Chicago's Lori Lightfoot Urges 'Call to Arms' Against Supreme Court
"We're going to lead the show today with Lori Lightfoot. Because it's just, it's just shocking. What's going on? Regarding some of these hysterical left wing reactions to the leaked scotus opinion by justice Alito. Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot, I'm reading from the post millennial issues call to arms over U.S. Supreme Court. Lightfoot tweeted Monday night to my friends in the LGBTQ+ community. The Supreme Court is coming for us next this moment has to be a call to arms. She followed that up with. We will not surrender our rights without a fight, a fight to victory. Now, what makes this particularly appalling is if you contrast mayor lightfoot's tweets with that of her tweets around January 6th, 2021. During which she tweeted, I am in disbelief with what is unfolding in D.C. right now. President Trump and his enablers incited this violence, shame on every elected official in Congress and elsewhere who fomented this anti democratic insurrection by extremists. This is not democracy. This is a disgrace. So what's good for the goose should be good for the Gander here, miss

Sgt. John Mattingly's Message to Officers in the Field
"That. family. We're talking to the author of 12 seconds in the dark, a police officer's firsthand account of Brianna Taylor raid from sergeant Mattingly you mentioned just now that you're just trying to do your job sergeant Mattingly. I just want to ask you one more question before I encourage everybody to read your book. I presume you retired or you've left the force right now. Tell me how did your colleagues who are still in the force, Friends you have in other jurisdictions. I mean, 'cause I'm a civilian, but I served in the British Army, but I've trained thousands, thousands and thousands of law enforcement officers across the country, local state, federal. And I just don't know how you guys go to work anymore. How you put on the badge, strap on the gun, and go to work when the mayor, the local commissioner, doesn't have your back and when you are prayed to political enemies that can ruin the life of your whole family, what is your message to those officers who are still in the bag? Well, it's tough because people say, man, would you do it again? And I say, yes, I would do my career again because I enjoyed it. I loved it. Would I start over now as a new guy doing it? Probably not for the simple fact that, like you said, there's just no support from upper command, especially if you're in a liberal city like lovo is and like all the main cities, you're already behind the 8 ball, just trying to do the right thing and to pull the laws that are on the book. So I would tell them we need you, we have to have you. You're the one holding the line. We appreciate you and I hope you continue to do it because we do need you as America. And that's the whole point in the book. It isn't about John. It isn't about just my situation. This is hopefully a wake-up call to America to say, hey, if we continue to travel down this path, if we keep going the direction we're going and chasing off all the good cops and prosecute in the ones who are just doing their jobs, you're going to get the bottom of the barrel. We're going to be what we were in Detroit in New Orleans in the 80s. And you're going to have corruption to the level you've never seen, and that's not what you want, and that's not what America

"Monday. The second of April seventeen seventeen thirty nine marked a significant day in the history of Christianity and it was on that day that John Wesley finally abandoned his reticence to preach outside the church and at King's Wood in Bristol. He took to open air. Evangelism Wesley's decision Asian brought him face to face with the common people and ignited a revival. The likes of which this country has never seen before. I may never see again regarding not great day. Wesley wrote in his diary. These words at four in the afternoon I submitted to be more vile. I love that. That's crazy man. I submitted to be more vile and proclaimed in the highways the glad tidings of salvation speaking from a little eminence in underground adjoining to the city to about out three thousand people the Scripture on which I spoke with this the spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor hair. Sent me to heal the brokenhearted to preach deliverance to the captives recovery of sight to the blind to set at liberty them that are bruised to proclaim the acceptable year of the lawsuit when Wesley finally abandoned the church approach to go and preach to the world to preach to the common people the portion of scripture that he chose to preach on. Was this passage that we're looking at this receiving subsequent history of course records that John Wesley lived out about text bringing the Gospel to the disenfranchised and to the needy masses of this country. Again if you know anything about ovation on me you know that the Salvation Army is as a grandchild of John Wesley. He's in our records he's in our DNA in the early days. At least our battle cry was for all the world in our early days offices went and appointed to call. They were appointed pointed to towns and they were that focus on those in spiritual and physical and emotional need in that community not not just on their congregation. So what's changed. Jesus still has that worldwide mission not sense of being for the world for our community not exclusively for Christians uh-huh and for the church. The question is if Jesus does do we whereas our our focus. It's lovely to come together. It's lovely to care and love each other as we do here to feel as if we're family. I'm we should never lose that. But Jesus came for those outside the family that should be why basingstoke core is here to we exist not for ourselves but for those outside of our doors for some reason which perhaps we will never fully understand this this side of heaven. Jesus is counting on us to get out there in the world and prepare the way for him in the way that we look and act like like him around those we spend our lives with our mission is an extension of Jesus mission. Our Holiness is a mobile holiness. It's not something we leave the doors when we leave here this evening we take it with us. It's a holiness cleanest that he's lived anywhere and everywhere. So ask yourself this evening. Do you have a heart for the world. Do you still believe that we can win. The world for Jesus could basingstoke being stoke core win basingstoke for Jesus the answer is only in Holy Spirit power and only if we consistently focus on rescuing the perishing around us. We must love them. We must care for them. We must ache for them. We must hurt for them. We must weep for them.

It's for Jesus to nourish US and help us to live for you in this coming week. We pray these prayers is in your name over the last couple of weeks. We have looked at this. This three part series all about change that horrible seaward that lots of don't like particularly in this modern autumn world where everything seems to change every five minutes but what we've learned over the last couple of weeks. I hope is that God wants Change Zhou a few weeks ago. We thought about changing ourselves last week we thought about changing now call and this evening. We think that it's time them to change the World Catherine booth once wrote if we are back to better the future we must disturb the present if we to better the future. We must disturb the president. God wants changing our lives in our core on in the world around around us. And what he needs us to be is ever-growing ever-changing disciples who are his change agents in the world this evening. We're thinking about winning the world for Jesus that comes from the Great Commission. We Find Great Commission. Matthew Chapter Twenty Eight Verses Eighteen to twenty twenty where Jesus comes to his disciples and says all Party and Heaven and on Earth has been given to me go there for a make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son of the Holy Spirit teaching them to observe all that I've commanded you and behold I am with you always to the end of the age. Jesus commanded his disciples and by extension his checks including ourselves to go and make disciples of all all nations to win the world for Jesus. Now if you know anything about the Salvation Army's history and I guess that most of you know in quite a bit about the salvation history then you know that. Our founders William and Catherine booth and their peers those Christian mission and in the Salvation Army in his early day early days took that great commission very very seriously they took it on. They run with it. So when the Christian mission changed its name to the Salvation Army in eighteen. Seventy eight William Booth who had become the general of the Salvation Army wrote in the Christian Mission magazine. These words the Christian mission has met in Congress to make war. It is organized the Salvation Army to carry the blood of Christ and the fire of the howdy ghost into every corner of the world. That's what he thought. The Salvation Army's purpose was to carry the blood of Christ and the fire of the holy. Any ghost into every corner of the world and Catherine Booth wrote around about the same time the decree has gone forth. Both the kingdoms of this world should become the kingdoms of our Lord and of his Christ and he show rain. Who's right it is from the river to the ends of the Earth? We we shall win. It is only a question of time and then she wrote. I believe that this movement is to inaugurate the Great Final Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ she truly believed that the Salvation Army was going to be the movement inaugurated the Great Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ what do you think about that one on exactly. Why not because we we may say well? Let's Victorian arrogance to say that this movement is the one to inaugurate the Great Final Conquest of our Lord. Jesus Christ but they really believed it. They really believe there and from this conviction that they would be the ones that would inaugurate this great final conquest of our Lord. Oh Jesus Christ the growth of the Salvation Army mission in the world grew at breath taking speed and it only grew with that breath taking speed because God was with them and they truly believed that this was what was going to happen that they really would take Jesus easiest on his blood and fire the hardy ghost into every corner of the world but they would win the world for Jesus. How could they have that kind of conviction? How could they have that kind of confidence? Will they believed in God. He wanted to win the world for himself. John Three Sixteen says God so loved the world. It doesn't say for God also love Christians. For God's love the Church for God so loved some people and not others says for God so loved the world that he gave gave his only son whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. They knew that God's mission was for the world not just for the church which not just for the Salvation Army not just the Christians and that Jesus lived and died for the world. Not just for you you and for me. How did they know that? Because Jesus Christ said that throughout his ministry on this evening we're we're looking at the words that he said at the beginning of his mystery his mission and ministry. I was more difficult to saying. I thought I'll try that again this evening. We're looking at the words that he said at the beginning of his mission and Ministry Luke Chapter Four if you want to turn to do it in your Bibles Luke four verses fourteen to thirty and that's on page ten thirty one of our call bibles and if you remember to bring your copy of Grapevine and you'll you'll find some notes on the page to help you as we read these words together.

"To understand the full revelation of God that he has shown to us otherwise what happens is we define I find God in our own image and we try to put him in a box so the first thing is we need to be renewed in the spirit of our minds uh-huh so that we are right thinking about God's then Paul moves onto lots of other practical ways in which we can live out our holiness and model will Jesus life for highly liquid. He says we can speak. Truthfully we can deal with reality as it really is and we can assume responsibility when things go wrong rather than trying to pass the buck or sweep it under the carpet and pretend it didn't really happen. Paul says we can control our anger. We can show that. We don't use anger in a simple way. which is show that when we are angry? It's a constructive destructive anger rather than a destructive and Paul says we can refuse to hold a grudge. We can let go of an unforgiving spirits we can decide not to descend into petty passive aggressiveness grudges. VEGGIES and bitterness are one of the best ways the devil has for causing splits and divisions in his people one of the best weapons Z. has grudges and bitterness. They separate people from each other either forcing individuals from the core or separating core into cliques factions. Paul says give no opportunity to the devil. Let's very practical concrete holiness us. Just don't give the devil foothold. Paul says we can accept our responsibility in life and worked to supply our practical needs when we have more than enough for practical nieves. Then we can choose to share with others and if we're able all to work and to be productive we can share with those who are unable to work and be productive. Says we can speak only to to build others up rather than slandering people or Gossiping about them ridiculing them or insulting them we can choose to encourage people hole in stead. We all need encourages. Don't we I thank God for the encourages.

Why because Jesus wants salvation is he wants us as basingstoke corn he wants to salvation? Army May live out its call to radical counter cultural obedience. You only have to look through this list to see how counter culturally is. It's different from the way the world works totally the opposite to the way the world works. Paul calls us to live out our salvation. ISM by living out a changed life Christian living requires us to continually tenuously put off our old self and continually put on new life. Just as many of us take off and put on a uniform said there are kind of symbol of that taking off our old life and putting new lives but sadly over the years. Maybe I've even been one of them on occasions too many salvation. This limit their discipleship. They limit their holy living. They limit their holiness to what they do when they put their uniforms on on Sunday. They live what looks like a holy life in their salvation. EST World when they're at the core or doing call ministry wherever that happens to be but look very different when you go out into the secular world and observe them there in the world where they spend most of their time in the salvation is worlds they can be seen proudly wearing their prestige and cleaned uniforms.

They follow the world's values even though those world values often clash with the values of the Kingdom of God consumerism. Tempts them to buy more things thinks. Because that's just the way that things are in the real world the tempted to earn money in a fraudulent way or morally questionable way. Because that's just the world works. It's what everyone does in the world. I find themselves elves in conversations where other people are insulted or demeaned and they failed to challenge those in the conversation and to offer compassion respect. Instead Jesus calls us all of us to put off our self centered. Mines and I'll self-centered false Selves and to put on his self emptying mind put on our new selves. And he calls us to do that. What Day by day and to do it out there as well as in here? He calls us to put on his character and to put on his righteousness justness. He wants us to live lives.

Seventeen seventeen to thirty two and if you picked up a set of message notes when you came in then they will help you as we go through this passage together. I want to start with a nice big question. What is the Salvation Army? What is the Salvation Army? Why does the Salvation Army exist? What's its purpose? I also that because sometimes I look at the salvation particularly in the Western world. and I wonder if we're not in a crisis of identity that we don't know what the Salvation Army's that we're not quite clear on in ways that perhaps we used used to in our very early days we were most definitely a radical Christian movement that called people to Jesus radical way of living and just think about our early days. We actually had the brass neck. Do use up phrase down here next year. That's good. We have the brass neck back to go to the poorest places of Victorian London to go to the gutters to go to those Victorian slums and we have to brass neck to say eight to those people the people who are marginalized and on the fringes of our society you can be saved and you can live a radical holy me life you can live a life of radical discipleship unholy living but when I look could our recent history in Western world. I wonder if we're prepared just to settle for complacency when we we compare ourselves to our early forefathers have we just settled for complacency for the last forty or so years we seem to have been content in just to become another institutionalized church. We've we've worked hard to become just another denomination and we've become enlarged pie are very well loved and well supported charity whenever I go out and collect or stand collecting people. Paul always say we love the Salvation Army always prepared to give to the Salvation Army. Sometimes it looks as though we're barely Christian Social Services Agency ED prepared to deliver a very high level of professional social service help. But sometimes when we've done that we've downplayed our faith and we've been unwilling to help those that we've helped seek help with their spiritual journey as well as with their physical and emotional needs. What's I wonder sometimes if we simply expected out decline the you know the way the trajectory that we're on particularly in the the Western world is just the way that is that we content just to Peter out until we simply cease to exist? Maybe we think think. Limited lifespan is simply inevitable as far as the Salvation Army's consent. Well I believe that. That's not our only option. How about you? I believe. That's not our only option. Jesus is still calling the Salvation Army to be credible followers Of his where the Salvation Army has become dry and dull. I still believe that those dry bones can live where we become lukewarm. I believe in the Holy Spirit can ignite US and direct us once more where there are salvation in this core and elsewhere who's holiness is dying for lack of oxygen.

We're looking at this evening. Is John Twenty one John. Chapter Twenty One verses fifteen to twenty five if you picked up one of our bibles is on the way in. And that's on page one zero nine zero and if you picked up some message notes on the way and then you can follow those as we look at this passage together the is a holiness movement. One of the great themes of love salvation. EST Life is holiness and living that holiness living that holy life to full measure. But do you ever get the impression impression that holiness holy living is all about living by the rules. You get ever feel that way some vacation as you're allowed to say yes or no sometimes thank you Mike. Can you remember some of the rules that we followed in days gone by. I can remember the days when the rule was that we were expected to go to every meeting on Sunday and in my situation that meant to who Sunday schools to open meetings three meetings and the only time that we weren't allowed to go to those meetings we'll when we were on holiday and then we were expected to go to the Salvation Army somewhere else. That was one of the rules that we followed. Do you remember the rule that said that. If you were involved in core activities then they came first before everything else. Lots of young people throughout the years probably still today today have that conflict between the activities that they're involved in the salvation army and then other activities that take place in school and other places. We had a rule about having family devotions every day around the table and saying up prayers before we went to bed. Some of US had rules that we didn't watch. TV TV on a Sunday ends up. If you follow that rule yes a few of you. Some people never went to the cinema or went to watch live sport. Some wouldn't go dancing. Obviously those suits their mini skirts in uniform. Probably not such a problem. I've lived with rules over the air. About what color socks have to wear uniform in fact I still have those rules today as an officer. I'm what kind of shoes were allowed to wear fien in Salvation Army music sections where there were rules about what color tights the ladies wore usually. Just the ladies and what type of back act carried and all those sorts of things and even today the soldiers covenant that we sign when become when we become Salvation Army soldiers. We sometimes are tempted to see as a set of rules to keep. But here's what I see. In Jesus's life he preached to ordinary people who had enough trouble making ends meet. They didn't have enough time or energy to pursue the laws of holy living that was demanded by their Jewish religion. Many in the crowds follow. Jesus were crippled and disabled. Some of them had lifestyles which were well somewhat less than wholly and you think it's strange how Jesus spent so how much time with the Publicans on the tax collectors and the prostitutes the people that Jesus spent time with we're rule breakers not rule keepers. And yet somehow they were the ones in which Jesus placed the most hope he came saying the Kingdom of God for such as them. The Kingdom of God was open to those who believe in Jesus but closed to those who placed their confidence and security in keeping the religious rules. Now before you start writing your emails and your letters to the divisional commander. Let's just say that I'm preaching salvation. Heresy I'm not suggesting that living out the Christian life in a dedicated and disciplined way isn't good for us because after all the Publicans and the tax and the prostitutes and everybody else Jesus met had transformed lives because they met Jesus us their lives were different after they met. Jesus just think about Jesus story of the Prodigal Son who was forgiven so that he could start all living like the child of God that he wants all the adulterous woman. He was forgiven not so that she could continue in her adultery but so that she he could live a totally new and different life. Perhaps the greatest example of this transformation is poor the chief of sinners as he called himself. Alf was justified by God's grace so that he wouldn't fall back into the sin of of spiritual legalism that he'd indulged in until Jesus on that. Damascus wrote it is a real temptation to reduce the holy living to a set of rules after all an army stopped rules. Doesn't it but you know all of those rules off sacred. Let me just take one. There are times when we hold up uniform wearing as a sacred rule so just should wear it on if one soldier turns up without on will then actually means there's something wrong with them and something wrong with their spiritual temperature except that when you think about it. There are officers and than soldiers who've used the uniform distraction from their unhealthy lifestyle. Suddenly the rule doesn't make much sense. I'm sure you haven't but I've met uniform. Salvation exists with hearts of stone. Doesn't matter about the uniform they wear then and I have to confess for myself. There have been times when I've been guilty of following all the rules of being a good salvation. s whatever that means whilst being aware that my relationship with God was totally less than ideal so hardly in a season about uniform. Although women proudly on holy living is not about the rules that we is easier to live holy life if we have some discipline that makes exit concrete. Only living isn't about wearing ourselves into the ground three service in order to prove how good we all to God into other people people will is a call to be fruitful so we have to ask ourselves in all of this then. What is holiness? What does it mean to live the holy life to live a life of holiness? I believe this passage from John. Twenty onto one can help us and listen to fill now. She reads versus fifteen to twenty five.

"If nations chapter four commencing Verse Twenty Five therefore each of you must put off false hurt and speak truthfully from the to his neighbor for we are all members of one Balti- annual anger do not sin. Do not let the sun go done while you are still angry and do not give the devil told he who has been stealing.

Thank you have a look at those versus in your Bible if you have it be great if you did. have it. Be Good if we were looking at. God's Word together have look those verses. What do they look like doc? I glance they might look like a set of rules. There's a whole list of things that you shouldn't do and then a whole list of things that you should do instead but it's not really a set of rules because has the key comes in the two versus before the passage that we started reading versus twenty three and twenty four visions chapter four. You'll find those in your message. Notes Paul says put off your old self which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful rule desires and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds. The key to this passage is that believers arte put put off the old self that to strip away the old self so that God can give them their new self. We go from the old self to the new self when we're baptized by the Holy Spirit. That's really what we talk about. That's what we really signify on symbolize. His when we put on our Salvation Army Uniform House ovation. I'm a uniform is useful in lots of ways but the biggest thing is that they they are a symbol of the fact that we've taken off our old lives we've stripped off our old lives and we have put on our new life baptized by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit kills off our old self and raises us us with Christ into the new life when we are baptized by the Holy Spirit we are reborn by the Holy Spirit Parrot. We renounce the forces of darkness and we embrace the Kingdom of light the habits of our old self no longer have control over us because we've stripped off and we've put on our new life. The Holy Spirit empowers us to resist the evil powers. How is of the world and gives us the motivation to put our whole trust in Jesus Grace and love? So can you see now that this passage is not a set of rules to follow things that you shouldn't do and things that you should do. It's not like the cub scouts or the brownies where we get a merit badge whenever we take one of these off. I'm not I'm not talking any me falsehoods anymore. Tick speaking truth with my neighbor tick. I'm not angry angry. I don't let the sun go down on my anger. Take haven't given an opportunity to the devil take. It's not that kind. Aww List living the holy life is not like collecting merit badges as a as a scout or Brownie and by the way since we're in a salvation army meeting can I just say the soldiers covenant is just the same the soldiers covenant is not a titlist list of rules to follow things to do when things not today and I say that because in my interactions with salvation is here in this core and elsewhere in the salvation army world. It seems that sometimes. That's what we reduce the soldiers covenant to another set of rules and regulations to follow. It isn't both this passage in a Fijian's and our soldiers covenant marks of the new life given to us when we're baptized by honey spirit when we take off our old selves and we put on new selves. God puts this way baptized by the Holy Spirit. Then this passage and our soldiers covenant is what our lives begin to look like. We're a new creation if we're a new creation than we cannot go back back to being our old self. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is not some kind of make ova paper over the cracks and hope that things will last. It's replacing one old self with a completely new self. The old all self is cast away and we focus on new life instead of turning back to the ways of death so so Paul says in this passage that when God gives us new life if we told lies in our old self the now we tell the truth if we had a tendency to be angry in our old life well then now we seek the peace of God's not as a take list to put because that's a mark of the new life that God has given us if we're a thief than we stop stealing and we look at ways of sharing doing what we have with those around some working honestly with our hands if our talk is unwholesome in our old self than when we take that often we strip off allow God to put new life into us then we start encouraging people and so on. This is what this passage is about. It's not list. It's the way life begins to look when we're baptized by the Holy Spirit and God gives us. He's new life. So what's our part in this hour. These verse one of Chapter Five Life if you want to memorize some scripture this week then this might be the verse to memorize. It's only one two three four five six seven eight words long. That's quite good for memorization. I think Paul says therefore be imitators of God as beloved children. That's our part therefore be imitators of gold is beloved children say with May therefore be imitators of God as beloved children therefore be imitators of God as beloved children like the small child in our video learns the way of life by imitating his parent so we learn Holy Life by imitating being got and we imitate God by simply following his example in his son. Jesus Christ on emulating his character in our lives. How many times have we send in the words of John Gallons down there in your message notes? I'm from southern number. Three hundred twenty eight to be like Jesus. This hope possesses me in every thought and cree undead. This is my aim my creed to be like Jesus. This hope possesses me his spirit helping me lie a came. I'll be. I'm afraid to sermon isn't rocket signs. Just take those middle lines if each and every one of us really really allowed going to grow in us that we could say in every thought and this is my aim mike create then we would be like Jesus that's just logic his net. It's not rocket science. It's logic in every thought. Indeed this is my a Mike creed to be like. Jesus if that was really what we wanted to do then we would be like Jesus. A disciple of Jesus longs to live the holy life. He or she is a student fully committed to imitating tasting their teacher. We read about Jesus in the Bible. Not Justin Oh more about him but in order to imitate him. I'm because of our relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the power given to us by the Holy Spirit we become godly characteristics An obedient cycles. In the way relief later we read about Jesus unlearn his example. But we also read each other. Have you noticed that we also so read each other you see. It's not enough to read about Jesus in the Bible and seek to put and then seek to put his example into practice because if we think about the analogy of the young child.

"If you'd like to turn to the evening's main passage we're looking at a Fijian's chapter four Fijian's chapter four starting at Verse Twenty Five and we're going into chapter five in verse two if you're using one of our bibles on page eleven. Seventy six eleven seventy six fees in chapter four verses twenty five to trump to five I to pray together. Jesus we come together this evening as a people who declare corporately and individually you load on. We declare our willingness US and wish and desire to live a harley life. We ask that through through the words that you will speak to us this evening. You will help us to live that hardy life better day by day so that we become more and more like you and we all sees praising your name so over the last few few weeks when I've been here we've been thinking I've said about this. This early Christian Dogma this early Christian creed this early Christian expression of faith. Jesus is Lord. And we've been thinking about what that means when Christians and salvation EST say Jesus this is Lord. What we reminded ourselves in? The past few weeks is that there isn't just a belief we don't just say we believe that Jesus is Lord but that in in saying Jesus is Lord that lives that brings us to a particular way of life that our lives say. Jesus is Lord and the way that we live day by day it means a life of obedience and surrender to him a holy life a life of holiness sinus and so our Salvation Army's tenth article of faith or doctrines. If you look at a message notes if you picked up on the way this evening say we believe that. It the privilege of all believers to be holy sanctified and their whole spirit soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord. Jesus as Christ what does that doctrine. Meanwhile does that article of faith mean well not is first of all that it says that it is the privilege of all believers leave us not of some believers but all believers and so all believers are called to be holy a sanctified and that their whole spirit soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord. Jesus Christ it says it's a privilege privilege but it's not privileged in the sense of. We often say society that there are some privileged people who are rich and have been given everything in life and then there are some that are not privileged when we talk about privilege in this article of faith we mean but it is a free the an undeserved gift from God. That's what it means to be a privilege. So we don't mean that there are some holy Christians and some unholy Christian questions. You don't believe in unholy Christians. Do you know if you're a Christian. Then it is the privilege of all believers of Air Free Christian to be holy to live the holy life. It's clear through his teaching and three poles else teaching as well. Look this evening that Jesus really intends to make every believer a radical follower that we should be his holy people holy living was always the plan. It wasn't just about getting people saved wasn't just about Out Jesus dying on the Cross to save us but that we should live a holy life afterwards so we need to know if that was always a plan what is is it. What is hardly living? Well it's to be like got holy. Living is to be like God now. I could leave the sermon here and we can say yes. We all agree with that and that would be fun. We could all go home. I'm not going to living a holy life means to be like God to imitate Gods. Now have you ever noticed how children imitate adults. Yes those of your parents will have noticed how children imitate adults. It's a way of learning in fact. Probably the main way that they learn just as a reminder have a look at a screen three.

"He turns our weaknesses into his opportunities. That's how he helps. Let's see turns our weaknesses into his opportunities to turn to. This morning's main Bible reading is one samuel chapter up to seventeen one samuel chapter seventeen. We're using selected verses from that chapter and if you're using one of our bibles it's on page two hundred and eighty-eight page two eight eight. Let's just pray together. Father we thank you for the a for the promises and for the truth that we have just done the you do indeed turn our weaknesses into your opportunities not by faith. The things that we you think are impossible can be can be made possible in your power. We also continue to encourage us with these words as we look at this a story from your web to get into this morning all men. Have you ever heard anybody say we can't do that. It's health and safety. Anybody heard that sounds like most of you have. We can't do that. It's health and safety. Health and safety over. The years has got a very bad reputation because we think that it stops us doing things because that's what we're told. Sometimes you can't do not because it's health and safety but actually that's not right. It frustrates me when I hear people say that. It frustrates gail even more because she's health and safety professional. I'm so she doesn't want to hear that people think well we can't do those things. Because of health and safety thousands and and thousands of people around the world today are climbing up onto very very toll structures and throwing them off throwing themselves off attached. Only only bein elastic band. It's cold bungee jumping. My view is that if you can take yourself tool structure not that I would we do this but if you want to take yourself a tall structure and throw yourself off attached only by elastic band. Then they're probably not many things that we can't do because of health and safety actually when health and so safety is done right and when risk assessments which are kind of a major part. Aw Health and safety are done right then there are. There are not many things that we cannot do because what the risk is excellent does is to assess the risk risk around whatever you want to do and then seeks to take steps to minimize the risk in that situation so no doubt those people you organize for people to be able to jump off a very tall structures attached by an elastic band have pages and pages of risk assessments. But they've tried to minimize the risk to life when somebody goes bungee jumping so if you think about as anybody gone bungee jumping I'm from here now. That's a very intelligent you not to do that. So that's something a little bit closer to home. If you take food safety for example there were lots of regulations of lots of health and safety food safety regulations that you need to comply with when you are giving food to members of the public so yesterday afternoon tea would have had lots of health and safety around it. So and pigs are stuff that we've become useful and we've become used to now so for example one of the steps that you might take a risk assessment asmant when you're thinking about giving food to members of the public is that you don't allow kitchen staff to handle food when they're sick you send them home. We'll tell them not to come. I mean that's one of the steps that you take identified by Risk Assessment to ensure that food is given safely to members of the public or you might one of the other things is to ensure that food gets to the right temperature so any bacteria in the food is killed off. So that's what really happens with. Risk Assessments and health and safety. Fifty doesn't stop us doing many things well this morning. We're looking at a story that I suspect that most of us have heard since childhood and actually this is one of those stories if health and safety ever got hold of it if they're being health and safety officers in the time that story took place then it probably wouldn't have taken place that have said no way because here. We have the story of a bully a giant of a man. A man with weapons opens to back up his bravado and he takes on an innocent young shepherd with nothing more than a sling and some stones. Bill Arnold the author says it's The story of sling stones versus Sword Spear and Javelin of defiant military aggression versus purity not in faith of right versus might of tall versus short and of youth versus maturity. This account has brought faith faith to millions over the centuries precisely because here purity and writes a victorious over might unlike so many of our own experiences not says maybe but health and safety would have said. There's no way you're doing this. Fortunately they he went around and so we still have the account and bibles and Kathy is GonNa come and read these verses tourists from one Samuel Chapter Seventeen sized avid that forces all the settled. Some pitched come thank they pitched com. P-ADEF is dumb. In between soccer and Ezekiel sold on the Israelites. Assembled and camped in the Valley Taylor and drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines. The philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites. Another with the valley between between them.

Goliath students shouted to the ranks of Israel. Why do you come out and line up for battle? I am not a Philistine. And all you not the servants of saw choose a man and have him come down to me. If he's able to fight and kill me we will become your subjects. But if I overcome him and kill him you will become as subjects and serve us then. The Philistine said this day I defy the ranks of Israel. Give me a man and let us fight each other on hearing the Philistines would soul and all the Israelites. Lights were dismayed and terrified verse. Nineteen they always soul nor the men of Israel in the Valley of are fighting against the Philistines early in the morning. David left the flock with a shepherd loaded up and set out as Jesse had directed he reached reached. The camp as the army was going out to its battle positions shouting the war cry Israel and the Philistines were drawing up their lines facing facing each other. David Leftists things with the caper of keeper of supplies ran to the battle lines and greeted his brothers as ass. He was talking with them. Goliath the Philistine champion from Gaffe stepped out from his lines and shouted his usual defiance and David heard predict best left to David said to Seoul. Let no-one loose heart lose heart. On Account Count this Philistine your servant will go and fight him Saul replied. You are not able to go out against this Philistine and fight him Euronews. You're on your boy. And he has a fighting man from his youth the David said to Saul your servant has been keeping his father sheep when Alon or bad came carried off a sheep from the flock. I went out. went out out after it struck it and rescue the sheep from its mouth when it turned on me. I seized it by its hair struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bare this uncircumcised circumcised. Philistine will be like thin. Because he has defied the armies of the Living God the Lord Order delivered me from the poor of the lion and the poor of the bear will deliver may from the hand of this Philistine. So said today David Go. Oh and the Lord be with you then sold dress David. In his own TUNIC. He puts a coat of armor on him and Lebron's helmet on his head judge. David fastened his sword over the TUNIC and tried walking around. Because he wasn't used to them. I cannot go in as he said to soul because I'm not used to them so he took them off then he took his staff in his hand chose five smooth stones from the Stream. Same put them in the pouch of his shepherd's bag and with his sling in his hand he approached the Philistine. Meanwhile the Philistine with his shield Barrow Front of him kept coming closer to David. He Look David over and saw that he was only boy. Roddy and Hanson and he. He despised him. He said today David. Am I a dog that you come at me. Mistakes and the Philistine curse David by his gods come here he said and I'll give your flesh to the birds of the air and the beasts of the field David to the Philistine. You come against me with soden spear spear and Javelin but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty God of the armies of Israel whom you have defied this day the Lord will hand you over to me and I'll strike you down and cut off your head today I will give the carcasses of the Philistine army to the birds of the air the base of the earth and the whole world will know that there is a god in Israel. All those gathered here will know that it is not by sword or spear that the Lord Saves For Battle is the Lord's and he will give all of you into our hands as the Philistine moved closer to attack him. David ran quickly towards awards the battle line to meet him reaching in his bag and taking out a stone he sung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead the stone sunk into his forehead and he fell face down on the ground..

We can actually drive them away from the Lord if we're not careful MOHANDAS. Gandhi was the leader of the Indian nationalist movement against British rule and was considered the father of his country and those of you who know about Gandhi will know he's internationally esteemed for his doctrine of non violence to achieve political and social progress. What you might not know is that in? His Autobiography Autobiography Bertha. Gandhi says that in his student days he was truly interested in the Bible and in the Christian message he was deeply touched by reading the gospels. Honey seriously considered becoming a Christian convert because Christianity seemed to offer the real solution to the caste system which was dividing the people of India. Yeah and so one Sunday he actually went to a nearby church to attend one of the services and he decided to seek out the minister and to ask for instruction the way of Salvation and enlightenment on other doctrines but when he entered the sanctuary of the church the ashes refused to give him a seat and suggested that he go and worship with his own. People left that church and never came back. If Christians have cost differences also Gandhi said to himself. I might as well remain a Hindu if we allow the godly lives that God works in us To fuel our pride and arrogance than we will drive people away from the Lord or as.

If I turn on certain days I can get a free free coffee in their restaurant but not weakens understand. So if we are members of God's family and to be accepted fully into God's family than we must acknowledge God as our heavenly father and laughing in John Chapter Fourteen Verse Twenty Three. We read reweight removed. Jesus words saying that if we love him we obey his teaching. We will do this. Not Fear. But but south bluff so are being in God's family and obeying his teaching God gives us the promise of term life with him read in John Chapter Fourteen versus twenty five twenty seven. He says these things. I've spoken to you while I'm still so we but the helper the holy spirit whom the father will send in. My name will teach you things and bringing to remembrance of all the odds set the pace. I leave if you my peace I keep to you not as the world gives to you. Let's not let not your heart be troubled. Neither let them in the frame let them be. Are you afraid. And in some translations I know the Holy Spirit is actually referred to as the comforter which is probably even a better word so in the old chessmen the people had to rely to some extent on the words of the Prophets Spring Comfort to them and I had also most of the time had to see with their own eyes. Miracles being performed cyclope leaving God only a few individuals filled. We've got spirit for example. Tehran me we read Joe Joshua being filled with the spirit however we members of I've got family and got children members whose family Jesus told us the promised us that we will be filled his spirit. What Jesus did not say and I think sometimes we do tend to forget this is that why not be a bread of roses? Jesus I did not promise that nothing bad will happen to us and everything will be easy and present in fact John Fifteen. We read that Jesus says they are persecuted it million they will persecute you so to summarize. We are members of God's family because we love and obey him he he acknowledges that by knowing our names and sending his Holy Spirit toss his spirit he guides and comforts suss either directly using the words. He's word in the Bible or by using other Christians by prompting. Some coming onsite site.

"As we come to open. God's word this evening let's pray together. Father God we have thought about your steadfast love for us today. We thank you for it. We thank you that it is you the puts your love into our hearts so that we may indeed love one another that we may indeed indeed deepen loving relationships between us as we open your where to save money. You will continue speaking to us that you will continue. We need to help us to find ways in order to deepen our relationships. So that the people of Basingstoke I'm beyond will know that we all your disciples so we follow you and we seek to live as your son. Jesus Christ praising your name Haman mm-hmm so if you haven't guessed from the responsive predatory had earlier in our meeting the passage we're looking at this evening is one Corinthians. One Corinthians convince chapter thirteen verses one to thirteen if you want to turn that into your turn to that in your Bible now and that would be great. It's on page eleven some fifty three in one of our bibles and if you grabbed a set of message notes on your way this evening you might want to find those too but I want you to start thinking about this passage this evening by answering this difficult question. It's difficult go question because basingstoke core is not like this but I want you to imagine for the moment a Salvation Army Corps without love what would have Salvation Army Corps with out. Love look like well. Thank you here under thylacine. I'll sit down now. What would salvation Army Corps without love? Looked like I imagine function that in a Salvation Army Corps without love. The People's faith would be purely academic it would all be up here in their ahead but not necessarily hearts and souls. I would imagine that in a core without love. The words that people spoke between each other would be wasteful because actually they would only hurt and on embitter the other people that those words were set to I would imagine that in a coal without love the idea of of sacrificing yourself others would just seen foolish. Why would you do that in a cool without love? I would imagine that in a coal without love the relationships between people would become merely transactional by which I mean if you can. I'm do something for me. Then I'll do something for you. In a coal. Without love. The mission of serving suffering humanity would be seen as something that doesn't pay it would be seen as something that was a waste of resources because it makes no difference it puts no bums on seat on seats on a Sunday in a coal without love. Caring for each other would simply become a kind of social service tick box. You visited somebody but he this week. Take a phone somebody this week. I've served them a cup of tea this week. Take whatever the service might be in a cool without love. Time is costed out. Do you know how long I've spent here this week. Do you know how long I've spent on service. Do you know how spent with that person. Time would be costed out in a call without I love any ministry or service would come to be seen as mealy work no different to the secular work. Perhaps that we carry out each day and Co without love. People would live in fear of each other. I'm in fear of the future and the reason for that is because there would be no future in the end. The soldiers Darren some friends over. Salvation Army Corps without love would simply serve themselves with heart soul and mind in short a call without without love is a coal without goats because the Bible tells us God is love. I ask you to imagine that cold without love because as we come to the end of the series on how to let off-court grow and as we think evening on developing and deepening loving relationships. We're going to turn to this passage in one. Corinthians chapter thirteen and we're we're going to think about a church without Luff Paul's letter to the Corinthians in fact Paul's letters to to the Corinthians are letters to church without love that has fallen into divisiveness and disorder uh which had led to a multitude of problems you can go home and read one Corinthians in two Corinthians to remind yourself of what lows multitude of problems problems were Paul directs is all of these issues in turn but in this particular passage one Corinthians chapter thirteen. He sums comes up. The biggest problem of all for the Carinthian Chech- so Stein is GonNa come and read these thirteen versus to us from in one corinthians thirteen and now show the most excellent way if I speak in the tongues of men and angels but have not love. I'm only resounding Gong or a clanging Cymbal if I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have faith that come move mountains but have not love. I am nothing if I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body bodied the flames but have not love. I gain nothing. Love is patient love is kind it does not envy it does not boast it is is not proud it is not rude it is not self seeking it is not easy angered it keeps no record of wrongs love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth it always protects always trusts always hopes always Perseveres love never fails but whether our prophecies they sees where there are tongues they will be stilled where there is knowledge it will pass away for we know in part and we prophesy in part but when perfection comes imperfect disappears. When I was the child I spoke like a child? I thought like a child. I reasoned like a child when I became a man. I put childish ways behind me. No we see but a poor reflection as a mirror then we shall see face to face now I know impart than our show know fully even as I I am fully known and now these three remain faith hope and love but the graces of these is love throughout one. Corinthians as I said Paul addresses each of the issues that the Carinthian has Crimson Church had but in this passage he says the biggest based problem that you have the biggest problem that you have Carinthian church at the core of all your difficulties. Is that you you our church without Luff. I'm Paul says at the beginning of this passage you know what Corinthians and by extension us. It doesn't matter what you do. It will come to nothing without love. It doesn't matter what what you do. It will come to nothing without luff deep abiding. Self sacrificial love love that looks out for others before it looks out for itself and so in terms of the Salvation Army a salvation army call will not save souls gross eight saints instead of suffering humanity without love. Fortunately for US Paul goes onto explain. What a loving church? A loving core looks like so we've thought about what a call without love. Looks like what does it call with. Love look like within within a core that is loving soldiers. Adherence and friends are patient. They bear with one. Another let me ask you this evening. Have you noticed that the more time that you spend with your comrades the more you notice there little annoyances look at them but a more time that you spend with your comrades the more you notice the little things that just wind you up at annoy you the the things that great on us the things that put us out poll says loving comrades bad those things things without complaining loving calm rates those things without complaining even when when provoked by comrades behavior loving soldier Darren offered in a loving core does not lose that temper unloving steadily perseveres with each other and loving coal soldiers endearing. Some friends are kind to each other that considerate they help each other. They're always ready to show compassion to each other. Especially those who need it the most comrades all all raid always ready with an all around the soldiers the shoulder a hug or an encouraging word. Whatever is that helps you to show kindness and a cold loving soldiers at deer and some friends don't envy each other com- rights aren't jealous of each other? They don't wish they could be like someone else or have someone else's gifts or someone else's ministry but they're actually content with the gifts in the Ministry of the Holy Spirit has given them and content to use them in loving service to go and to other people in fact in a loving core the comrades aren't Grad of the diversity of gifts between them and the number of talents that there are in a call because it means the entire the job of advancing. The Kingdom can get done. I need you and you need me. We need each other. And I'll gifts chiefs and talents in loving cool soldiers during some friends on boastful and proud comrades direct attention to themselves. Spiritual gifts aren't used for personal at draftsman advancement but actually full-service in my kingdom the comrades. Don't feel they're simply doing people a favor by serving them will feel that somehow their superior to those around them Paul says that in a loving church in a loving Cole. The soldiers during some friends aren't rude to each other then. Impolite told discourteous so crude to each other. Every comrade is a team player they roll together and work together working. Fostering the spirit of the Kohl between us in a loving coal comrades don't ever humiliates each other but always act in a way that's worthy The the cooling that God is made on their lives poll says that in our loving coal soldiers there in some friends on self-seeking comrades don't always want their own way comrades. Don't throw volume that toys out the promise. Something doesn't go their way. Instead they look to others I giving up perhaps their own desires and ideas for the sake of others and they use the gifts of the Holy Spirit has given them with the saving attitude and a desire to build the kingdom in Loving Co poll says the comrades easily angered the touchy irritable or easily slice. It let things get on end up he will. I really mean by that. The not let people get on the nuts snubbed. The things that get on on those then I'll easily angered by the way that people do have the the way other people do things they give each of the latitude and the benefit of the doubt and they responded in a loving way when disagreements arise poll says that in a loving call the soldiers during some friends don't keep records of wrongs then resentful of every minor offence misunderstanding that may take place flakes between them make allowances for each other's foibles and flaws work to forget when wrongs done to them they overlooked mistakes allow others however flawed they might think they'll continue to serve with gifts that the highly experienced given them eleven coal the soldiers Darren some friends protect trust and persevere with each other that refused to gossip harmfully about each other they protect each other from those that might set out to harm them they think the best of each other rather than the West list of each other they deal with conflict in loving Weiss they look for growth in materials maturity the accommodates they know that God is at work in men and so they understand that God is in work at work tuck in that comrades to they know that failure is not the end the guard isn't finished with anyone and yet and they strive to hold their relationships together even when disappointed by someone else they continue to trust God's even when the call suffers setbacks and they continue to serve out despite the fear and hurt they might Mike failed on occasion in short nothing can stop the people in not loving core from fulfilling Oh filling God's purpose for that core and for the Salvation Army it's important that the cool keeps first things first it's important that this call is focused on the important not the trivial. I understand that each one of us has opinions on. What's the most important in terms of program and theology and symbols the way we're organized? And what committees we have and what our ministries are in all of those kind of things. We all have something to say about how we spend our time on money but Paul reminds us that the most important thing the thing that we need to ensure is in the forefront of our minds on in the forefront of our behavior. He's love love is more important. The being right love is more important than exercising power. Love.

"Thank you any. So shall we say. Shall we get the controversy out of the way I do notice. There's a controversy in this passage. Anybody faith without deeds yes so whole says actually. It's mother works that save you. It's not the deeds that save you. It's only faith that saves you. And that's what we follow as Protestant Evangelical Christian. So if you look at the first burst in your outline Romans Three Twenty eight Paul says for we maintain that a person is justified by faith. Apart from the works of the the law. In other words you'll save by faith not by works in Galatian strapped to to sixteen. That's the next verse in your outline. Paul says yet. We know that a person is justified. Fide not by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ and we have come to believe in Christ Jesus so that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by doing the works of the law because no one will be justified by the works of the law. So did Paul and James Contradict each other. Well let's have a look at the context first of all. They were confronting different issues. So Paul in his letters was confronting false teachers. Those false most teachers would take teaching networks in particular things like being circumcised and observing Jewish ceremonial laws. They were all necessary for salvation vice. You couldn't be saved. You couldn't belong to God unless you went through those ceremonial laws. James is is arguing. Something different he's arguing with those who believe that simply agreeing with the Gospel in other words. Having a kind of intellectual faith in their minds was enough to obtain salvation. There's also a difference in the timeframe of the believer's faith journey. Paul is talking about salvation -ation right at the beginning of the Christian journey and he's saying no one at this point at the beginning of the Christian journey no one can ever earn God's forgiveness and salvation. It's a gift. We were thinking about not over Easter when we saw Vatian is gift. It's a gift of grace and we obtain Tena through faith not through works. All we can do is to accepted James Speaking to Christians who are further along that journey mature Christian believers those who already accepted that gift of forgiveness and salvation and he is saying in essence for well them they must live a new life if through faith they have obtained salvation and the gift of forgiveness and salvation. Then it must look like a different different life as mature believers. James isn't saying that works. Have to be added did to faith but that genuine faith includes works. So that's a controversy out of the way now we can focus on what James wants to say to us this evening. Kiva is not verse. Seventeen James says so with faith if it does not lead to action it is in itself lifeless thing faith if it does not lead to action is in itself a lifeless thing now among many Christians today they say. Do you know the days have gone now for preaching. That's black and white. We need it to be a little bit more gray. We needed to be a little bit more nuanced well. James clearly didn't believe in that because we have this stark warning here. It's black and white. It simply believing in God is not enough. Can't get much more black and white and that Kenny simply believing in God is not enough conviction and intellectual belief kind of a belief in our minds that refuses to obey Christ comes is lifeless date again. There's this quite black and white isn't it isn't it. You're either alive or dead. Sometimes we might feel between but honestly either alive over it. How do we know that our faith is the real thing? How do we know that our faith is alive and not dead because it does what it says on? The Tin Action is the fruit of living faith. If we don't respond to others needs if we don't respond to those social issues that we thought about a few minutes ago then whatever faith eighth we possess is dead black and white. It's dead just in case we don't get not James. Has This hypothetical example for us to go through in verses fifteen to sixteen suppose brother or sister is in ranks with not enough food. For the day I'm unwanted says well good luck to you keep yourselves warm and have plenty to eat but does nothing to supply their bodily needs. What is the good of that? And what are we all say to dot. It's no good a toll. That's quite straightforward. Isn't it really. James Raises is hypothetical socialist. You have his day and I'm sure that there were people who are actually in that kind of situation and simply asks what would we do. What would we do? Would we really see someone in rags and with no food for the day and simply say well good luck to you keep yourself warm and have plenty to eat. Well if so then our faith is nothing but empty words because those words mean nothing. It's certify inadequate isn't it to say to someone on him not situation. Well Good luck to you. Keep yourself warm and I hope you're okay. It doesn't work because nothing changes now. We might actually actually be really sincere. And those words that we say it's not that we dismiss them and say we're good luck to you. We might actually mean keep yourself look after yourself goes well words might be well many but nothing altars in the end. I'm that's why James says our faith is date because nothing changes something more than simply talk is required if however we see see someone in ranks and with no food for the day and our faith stirs Stark Shen if we find them some warm clothes to wear or we find them shelter or something thing warm and comforting tweet actions. Confirm that our faith is alive. It's the real thing because it's doing. What exactly what it says on the tin gene our faith changes the situation? I'm that's what shows that our faith is alive. Now this is in the Salvation Army's DNA. I'm preaching to the converted tonight. Salvation is believe this. Don't worry yes good about twenty of you. That's pretty good. William Booth said you cannot warm. The heart of hearts people with God's love if they have an empty stomach uncalled feet. He got it. He got those words from James. He realized that real faith real faith makes a real difference in human life and it was his belief and good works as the fruit of faith that led us to set up homeless hostels soup kitchens match factories freeze job clubs all sorts of different things many of which still going on today need oriented evangelism. Him as the phrase goes is still one of the strengths of the army. Today God continues to call us to share God's love in ways that are relevant to the needs of those around us we are called as the Salvation Army. We cold basingstoke core. We are cold. As individuals individuals salvation exists to meet the relational material emotional and spiritual needs of those op community. Who Most need it so the question tonight? It's quite easy isn't it. Is our faith the real thing does our faith say exactly what it does exactly what it says on. How are we using our spiritual gifts? Our energy we are experiencing our contacts and a time on material goods to meet the felt needs of the people of basingstoke or do we have to admit admit to ourselves that actually we quite content to wish them well and hope they find the help that they need so if we want our call to grow then it's the job of every believer here to ensure that their faith does what it says on the team. There are people in the world out there who need you they need me May need Christ. Will you ensure that yours is a fighting faith.
