VCY America Singspiration!

We had a great time of singing with your friends from VCY America! VCY America and Havenwood Baptist Church in Hurley presented a Singspiration Sunday night, April 28th, at the Hurley High School Auditorium. We applaud the commitment of VCY America to church hymnody and joyful singing. The Singspiration was a time of singing old favorite hymns and choruses that warm your heart and encourage you.

In addition, Vic Eliason from VCY America spoke Sunday morning, April 28th in the morning service at Havenwood Baptist Church.

Question: What do you say to someone who has lost a loved one?

This is among the most challenging situations in life for those who have lost a spouse, parent, or close friend. I would add that the challenge is for those left behind. The Scriptures do not seem to indicate the “second chance” after death that some would advocate. One can know their hope of eternity from the Bible before their passing away, and I believe that is very clear. It may sound presumptive, but God does want us to know we have eternal life here on this earth. I John 5:13 tells us that what is written (the Bible) is written so that we may know that we have eternal life.

Question: Are all who claim the name “Christian” truly believers?

The sad answer to this question is no, some are not truly believers. Jesus illustrated this in Matthew, chapter 7, verses 21-23. He says, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;” so we dare not say anything different. He gives 4 different marks between the false and the true in this passage. In these particular verses, we can see the differences between a true and false believer. We can liken this to what is known today as “identity theft”.
