“Behind every successful person stands a surprised mother-in-law…”

No doubt you have laughed at this familiar statement. No, a surprised mother-in-law does not provide the key to success.

That funny statement does not describe my mother-in-law. I learned many lessons from her. She lived the last 10 years of her life in our home. Diane and I thank God for those years when we enjoyed her, helped to make her life meaningful, and took care of her.

One day, she called me into her living quarters. She wanted to give me some money. She knew of the ministry that God called me to start, and she wanted to help with our finances.

I declined her offer with great emphasis, telling her that we did not welcome her into our home for her money. She held her ground and said to me:

“Tom, you need to learn how to humble yourself and accept the gifts of those who want to help you.”

Wow…talk about a two-by-four between the eyes. Thank God He convicted me on the spot, and I told her she was right. I thanked her for her gift…a great lesson learned and not forgotten.

It humbles me to receive the many gifts that people have given to Master Ministries International, Inc. It would fail without their faithful generosity.

Because of it, MMII continues to reach multitudes of people around the world with the truths of the gospel of Christ, without cost to them.

Pastors, evangelists, and fellow believers in Africa, India, Pakistan, Philippines, and countless other nations have access to over 600 audio and video Bible studies to use, as well as hundreds of articles and PDF sermon transcriptions that I write, plus articles from well-known Christian leaders.

Since inception, MMII has delivered over 133,000 audio and video Bible studies plus over 2,000,000 articles and sermon transcriptions. Last month’s visitors came from 82 nations. God uses this unique ministry in ways that astound me.

However, as you know from your own experience, costs of virtually everything continue to rise. This increase strains the finances of MMII, too.

In spite of increased costs, MMII’s policy of “free as the Lord provides” remains in force and will continue. We have never failed to provide materials, even books and Bible’s, to anyone who desires them, without charge, as the Lord has provided.

Though the ministry opportunities and expenses for MMII continue to increase, I have resisted the practice of asking people to contribute to this work.

MMII acknowledges with gratitude the faithful monthly donors and occasional givers whose gifts continue to make this ministry possible. You, too, can share in this work of God by donating resources that MMII can use to reach others with the message of Jesus Christ either with a one-time gift or more frequently with a monthly gift as God directs you.

I write to you to ask you to consider prayerfully your becoming a Partner with Master Ministries in the work it provides throughout the world.  This link provides information on the kinds of contributions which you can consider, an online link for immediate gifts, and the address where you can mail your contribution.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Matthew Henry Solution #1:  We must have a continual regard to God’s providence by faith.

  1. “We must have a continual regard to God’s providence, must own and depend upon it in all our affairs…
  1. “We must repose an entire confidence in the wisdom, power, and goodness of God, assuring ourselves of the extent of His providence to all the creatures and all their actions…”
  1. “We must believe that He is able to do what He will, wise to do what is best, and good, according to His promise, to do what is best for us, if we love Him, and serve him.”
  1. “We must, with an entire submission and satisfaction, depend upon Him to perform all things for us, and not lean to our own understanding, as if we could, by any forecast of our own, without God, help ourselves, and bring our affairs to a good issue.”
  1. “Those who know themselves cannot but find their own understanding to be a broken reed, which, if they lean to, will certainly fail them. In all our conduct we must be diffident of our own judgment, and confident of God’s wisdom, power, and goodness, and therefore must follow Providence and not force it. That often proves best which was least our own doing.”

4 Epic Errors Keller Makes To Reject

timk

Timothy Keller holds a prominent and influential position in the professing Christian Church today. Millions of people admire him and read his publications. In some of his writings, Tim Keller adopts a subtle acceptance of postmodernism which infiltrates some of his beliefs.

4 Epic Errors Keller Makes You Must Reject

Timothy Keller Error #1: Acceptance Of Postmodernism’s Suspicion Of Truth

One of postmodernism’s pillars, the suspicion of truth, permeates our culture with these fallacies:

  • the death of objective truth;
  • dependence of truth upon the individual, circumstances, and group dynamics; and
  • the relativism of truth.

 “That’s just what you believe” intrudes everyday conversation. What began years ago in higher education now infects everything from public education, politics, even into Christianity. At the risk of over simplification, the suspicion of truth saturates today’s culture.

Postmodernism’s suspicion of truth infiltrates the professing Christian Church, too. Rejection of the authority of the Bible as the objective standard truth, including its inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility, increases among Church leaders which yields theological ambiguity and denial of Biblical doctrine.

Uncertainty of Biblical truth used to come exclusively from those outside of the Church. Now, it occurs from those holding positions of leadership in the Church. Instead of the Church influencing the culture, today’s professing Christian Church conforms to the culture.

One of those leaders who expresses postmodernism’s suspicion of truth, Dr. Timothy Keller, recently wrote an article, which epitomizes this condition.
