The History of the Half-Converted Christian

In this broadcast, Pastor Ray provides a detailed historical basis of the half-converted Christian. This term was coined by the great revivalist, Jonathan Edwards. Listen and understand that everything is not religion neutral, in fact Supreme Court Justice Scalia said on January 2, 2016, that the idea of religious neutrality is not grounded in the...

The Illusion of Middle Ground

Because God has blessed America based on our founding father’s trust and submission to God, we’ve had the illusion that there is a middle ground, where we can worship God and do our thing and we don’t have to make an allegiance to Jesus.

No Longer at Enmity with God

Repenting of particular outward sins, while essential, will not make you a Christian. The fountain of wickedness in the inner soul must be dealt with. Have you been totally converted? Does your life show a pattern of victory over sin by the blood of Jesus, or is your Christianity merely empty words?

The Gospel of Holiness in Real Life

To understand what the gospel of holiness looks like in real life, we must first ask, “Do you really feel a need for a savior?” Salvation must begin with an in-depth breaking down of our mind and heart as we recognize our exceeding sinfulness and how far we have fallen from the glory of God....

The Fruit of a Sinner and a Saint

Many who profess Christ will find themselves shut out of the kingdom because they were not willing to deny themselves, take up their cross, and follow Jesus. The day is coming when every man will be judged by his works, and you must be found having real righteousness, not mere profession. Will you set your...
