APRIL--MAY, 2005

Dear Friends in Christ,

"Beloved, I wish above all things that…thy soul prospereh" (3rd John 1:2).

In our local paper for the 18th March 2005 was the article titled TIME TO MARK HOLY EVENT. It said "Palm fronds and a cross fashioned from railway sleepers will be among the props used to mark the beginning of Holy Week when the combined churches of Dubbo gather in Victoria Park this Sunday. It's the seventh year the Catholic, Anglican, Uniting and Lutheran churches have come together for an ecumenical Palm Sunday service."

"The Palm Sunday service will be the culmination of a big weekend in Victoria Park, which will be the venue for the Easter Awakening Festival from noon to 4pm tomorrow. The free family event will offer live bands, an outdoor café, wind tunnel, two jumping castles, sumo wrestling, three-way tug-o-war, water bomb volleyball, kids craft and more. Further activities will be offered throughout the afternoon including puppets and jigsaw puzzles, clowns, face painting, juggling, bubble blowing, balloon sculpting and an appearance by Granny Smith who will be handling out apples as part of a ‘living Aussie parable’ being told on the day. Cool drinks and hot food such as sausage and steak sandwiches and hot dogs will be available at cost price. Free tea, coffee and slices will be available from the outdoor café."

We do not know the hearts of these people but we do know organized Catholicism has not changed. It is a known fact that to be consecrated as a Roman Catholic church there must be some relic (a Roman Catholic saint’s bone, hair, etc) be placed under the altar. If you have ever been inside a Roman Catholic building you will have seen that in almost every corner there is a statue (idol). God’s Word says to "…flee from idolatry" not join hands with it. We certainly were not a part of this event. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is truly an event for commemoration but where do these who claim the name "Christian" think jumping castles, sumo wrestling, etc. have anything to do with that wonderful occurrence of the resurrection of Christ? Vance Havner said it best in his sermon ARE WE PLAYING BY THE BOOK? He said "If God ever visits us again in real revival, there will be many red faces as churchmen and religious leaders blush and hang their heads in shame for the silly and stupid ways in which we have tried to promote the work of God in the energy of the flesh by the help of the world. Drama will be unnecessary. We may not even need great preachers! Gospel jazz will slink away, and we shall be chagrined that we ever sank so low as to tolerate it. All this will vanish in the blinding light of the holiness of God, and no flesh will glory in His presence..."

We share the above article from our local paper because the very same thing is probably taking place in your community as well. Let us pray for each other as we seek to proclaim the Biblical gospel of Jesus Christ to a religious but lost world. 1 Corinthians 15: 3 – 4 "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures."

Joyfully Serving the Risen Saviour,

David and Pam Bennett
