One of the most important aspects of a bookshop and literature ministry is knowing what NOT to present on your shelves, as “we have no small cause to be thankful to God for good books, when there be such hordes of bad ones”. Indeed, there are ‘christian bookshop’s’ in this country that began well, but quickly capitulated to the errant wants of an undiscerning nominal ‘christian’ clientèle. Abandoning biblical principles and pandering to itching ears rather than presenting sound doctrine that cannot be condemned, such became purveyors of perverse things and a source of real injury to young believers as yet unexercised in the faith. A ‘world of christian products’ is merely a high sounding catch-phrase for promoting businesses that are swine troughs overflowing with mystical offal, rancid slops of neo-liberalism and the trash of “new” evangelicalism. Enough said. Buy your books and literature from people who honour the LORD! “,,,,the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” 1Sam 2:30

We warmly commend the Faith and Freedom Bookshop to the attention of our listeners. Pray earnestly for the Lord’s blessing upon the believers at Faith Presbyterian Church – Perth who uphold this ministry.

Pink Hebrews 11.17-19
“O how little faith is in exercise among the professing people of God today. Occupied almost wholly with the rising tide of evil in the world, with the rapid spread of Romanism, with the apostasy of Protestantism, the vast majority of those now bearing the name of Christ conclude that we are facing a hopeless situation. Such people seem to be ignorant of the history of the past. Both in O.T. times and at different periods of this dispensation, things have been far worse than they now are. Moreover, such trembling pessimists leave out God: is not HE “able” to cope with the present situation? A hesitating “Yes” may be given, at once nullified by the query, “But where is the promise that He will do so?” Where? Why in Isaiah 59:19, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood (has he not already done so!), the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him”—but who believes it!

Ah, my Christian reader, ponder thoughtfully that blessed affirmation of Him that cannot lie, and then bow the head in shame for thine unbelief. Every thing in the world may seem to lie dead against the fulfillment of many a Divine promise, yet no matter how dark and dreadful the outlook appears, the Church of God on earth today is not facing nearly so critical and desperate a situation as did the father of the faithful when he had his knife at the breast of him on whose one life the accomplishment of all the promises did depend. Yet he rested in the faithfulness and power of God to secure His own veracity: and so may we do also at this present juncture. He who responded to the faith of sorely-tried Abraham, to the faith of Moses when Israel stood before the Red Sea, to the three Hebrews when cast in Babylon’s furnace, will to ours, if we really trust Him. Forsake then your newspapers, brethren, get ye to your knees, and pray expectantly for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Man’s extremity is always God’s opportunity.”

“In these days of boasted liberality, it may appear captious to oppose with zeal the errors of men who have acquired a name in the Christian world. The mantle of charity, it will be said, ought to be thrown over mistakes that have resulted from a free and impartial investigation of truth, and if not wholly overlooked, they should be noticed with a slight expression of disapprobation. Such however, was not the conduct of the Apostle Paul. He spared neither churches nor individuals, when the doctrines they maintained tended to the subversion of the Gospel; and the zeal with which he resisted their errors was not inferior to that with which he encountered the open enemies of Christianity. He affirms that the doctrine introduced into the Galation churches is another gospel, and twice pronounces a curse against all by whom it was promulgated. Instead of complimenting the authors of this corruption of the Gospel as only abusing in a slight degree the liberty of free examination, he decides that they should be cut off as troublers of the churches. Let not Christians be more courteous in expressing their views of the guilt and danger of corrupting the Gospel, than faithful and compassionate to the people of Christ who may be injured by false doctrine. It is highly sinful to bandy compliments at the expense of truth.”
“The awful responsibility of being accessory to the propagation of error is strongly expressed by the Apostle John. ‘If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him god-speed; for he that biddeth him god-speed is partaker of his evil deeds’ If the imputation of Adam’s sin and of Christ’s righteousness be doctrines contained in the Word of God; commentaries that labour to expel them from that Word must be grossly pestiferous books which no Christian ought to recommend, but which on the contrary, to the utmost of his power, it is his duty to oppose.”
Robert Haldane, Preface: The Epistle to the Romans, London, Banner of Truth, 1966.

Gospel Hour Update

With thankfulness to the LORD and acknowledgment of His mercies we commence the seventh year of broadcasting on 2CHR. We wish to express appreciation to our fellow pilgrims for their kind support in prayer and frequent encouragment to continue publishing the Word for the honour of our LORD Jesus Christ and their refreshment. The Bible says “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” Rev.19:10, and the Word of God alone, inscripturated in the Old and New Testaments, is the means by which God the Holy Spirit brings light and life to the hearts of lost sinners: “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” John 5:39. “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:” John 15:26.
The sulphuric religious imaginations and miasmas of pseudo-spiritual psychologism that erupt from the caldera of the fleshly mind are fatal to a soul’s eternal interest. There is no Divine power, spiritual life or assurance of mercy tendered in them, “But in vain they do worship me,” said the LORD Jesus, “teaching for doctrines the commandments of men”. Mt 15:9. The truth is that,”It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63. Therefore brethren, we must,,”stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;” Phil.1:27.

Warm regards in Christ from Rob, Edwina, and Japheth Nicholson.

Gospel Hour Site Update

We have rearranged the Gospel Hour site to facilitate access to sermons broadcast in the second hour of Sunday Breakfast (7-8am) ‘informally’ called ‘the Hunter Gospel Pulpit’. All sermons, messages and talks now have a dedicated page under the ‘Sermon’ tab on the site navigation bar. These audio files may be freely downloaded and shared with acknowledgment to the Kurri Kurri Congregational fellowship and the Gospel Hour. Bear in mind that by Divine intention, preaching is a ‘living voice to a hearing ear’, that is, it is always better, DV, to be ‘there to hear it’ in the first place. The sermons and messages have been processed for broadcasting with no editorial modification of the actual content. We thank the LORD for His great kindness and the gracious privilege of serving our fellow ‘strangers and pilgrims on the earth’.

Warm regards in Christ, Rob, Edwina, and Japheth.
