Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible NEW BAPTIST HYMNAL SONG TITLES RELEASED 18 March 2008 (Edited by DCB) "The mystery is over. The songs going in the new Baptist Hymnal have been chosen." What songs are included in this New Baptist Hymnal? Some songs included in this New Hymnal are, Shout to the Lord by Darlene Zschech and songs by Travis Cottrell.

According to Mike Harland, director of the Southern Baptist LifeWay Worship, "there is a good mix of hymns, worship music and praise choruses." Travis Cottrell’s says he travels "…with Beth Moore" and leads "…worship at her Living Proof Live conferences". Darlene Zschech, according to is the Worship Pastor at Hills Christian Life Centre in Castle Hill, Sydney, Australia. One might criticize the Southern Baptists for their choice of the writers and songs they have chosen, but sadly, many of the "independent" Baptists have gone the same way in music!

Editor’s Comment: We need more "children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times" 1Chronicles 12:32. That old serpent the devil is using today’s "Christian" music to help build the future world religious ecumenical organization of the coming tribulation!,22049,23387556-5001028,00.html WOMEN 'MISTREATED BY MERCY MINISTRIES' 17 March 2008 (Edited by DCB) The Hills Christian Life Centre (also known as Hillsong) is the church where Darlene Zschech, writer of Shout to the Lord, is worship pastor. Hillsong is a member of the Assemblies of God and one of Hillsong’s ministries listed on their web site is Mercy Ministries. According to a Sydney Morning Herald’s investigation, "Young women suffering mental illness were treated with Bible studies and exorcisms as part of a secretive ministry linked to Gloria Jean's Coffees and the Hillsong Church." According to the paper’s investigation, these young women "…signed over months of their lives to Mercy Ministries, which offered them little or no medical or psychiatric care…" Three former "residents" of Mercy Ministries "…have blown the whistle on the program, claiming they were independent young women when they entered, but came out broken and suicidal, believing - as ministry staff had told them - that they were possessed by demons and that Satan controlled them." Since leaving Mercy Ministries, they have been "…forced to undergo years of intense psychological and psychiatric care to overcome their treatment at the ministry."

Mercy Ministries executive manager, Judy Watson, told the Sydney Morning Herald that "Mercy Ministries staff address the issues that the residents face from a holistic client-focused approach; physical, mental, emotional. The program is voluntary and all aspects are explained comprehensibly to the residents and no force is used."

Editor’s comment: Read the following from Mercy Ministries own web site. (Edited by DCB) On this web site one reads, now deceased "Mother" Teresa, saying, "The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread". In her book A SIMPLE PATH, page 55, Teresa wrote, "I’ve always said we should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a Muslim become a better Muslim, a Catholic become a better Catholic (Underlining Added)."

Clicking on the link "Events" leads to where is posted "The Black & White Ball This year will be Mercy Ministries' 8th Annual Black & White Ball..."

"Guests will enjoy pre-dinner drinks at the Hilton Sydney in the Grand Ballroom Foyer, followed by an evening of magnificent food and wine, superb entertainment and life changing testimonies (Underlining added)."

Editor’s Comment: Ecumenism and worldliness are alive and well! 1 John 4: 5 "They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them." 18 March 2008 - $50 FOR A CUPPA AND RECIPE TO DIE (Edited by DCB) Euthanasia is alive and well (pardon the pun)! "THE meeting began like any other senior citizens' gathering on a sunny weekday afternoon. There was tea and coffee being poured under portraits of the Queen, but this time it was being served with images of lethal drug kits and instructions on suffocation bags." Over 100 elderly people packed a senior citizens centre in the Australian state of Victoria "…to learn about peaceful, reliable and cost-effective ways to take their own lives." The introductory lecture is free but the following workshop was $50. Before the seminar began a disclaimer had to be signed "…that declared they would not use the information ‘to advise, counsel or assist in the act of suicide’".

Editor’s Comment: Abortion is legalized murder and the legalizing of murder via euthanasia is just a matter of time. Is the putting down of a human life the same as putting down an animal, say a dog? The Genesis account says "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul" Genesis 2:7. Also in Genesis 1:26 "God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness". Man is unique of all God’s creation and four times in Scripture we read, "thou shalt not kill", Exodus 20: 13; Deuteronomy 5: 17; Matthew 5: 21; and Roman 13: 9. Of all life on earth, human life is sacred! However, those who favour euthanasia speak of the "quality" of life rather than the sanctity of life! Listen to Job when it is said "…he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat down among the ashes" Job 2:8. Job’s quality of life was not what he or we would desire but then in steps Mrs. Job, and she says, "Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die" Job 2: 9. It seems Mrs. Job was looking at the quality rather than the sanctity of life! However, Job had some spiritual insight that his wife lacked and he replied, "Thou speakest as one of the foolish women (the pro-euthanasia crowd) speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips" Job 2: 10.

Because of Grace and Calvary,

David C. Bennett, D. Min.
