E-Mail Question - Good afternoon, I listened to your program Tuesday and you started a subject on Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage but then a caller called inand you didn't have time to goover the subject. So here is my question in case you get to this subject. I have a close friend that has not ever been baptized she knew a man for about four years from an online social network and they were both married. He is of the Catholic faith. One year after they were married there were problems in the marriage like all marriages have. He was from the state of Illinois and that is where they lived. So one day he and she got into an argument and he called his mother to come get him and told her he was living. After the mother got there, the argument was over and he told his wife he wasn't leaving and just wanted to talk to his mother. So while his wife was upstairs with her two year old son the husband leaves his wife and son. Well, the wife was devasted and called the cellphone, he would not answer the phone for over a year. The wife begged her husband to come but he refused. The wife moves in with friends after moving back to Tennessee and still calls her husband begging him to come back, but he refuses. After six months, the friend she was living with. kicked her out of their house. This girl had no one and she calls her husband once again to come home but he didn't care and still wouldn't come back. My question is how can God not let this girl have someone that will be good to her and her son? I understand it's not wrong to separate but I feel this is just not just a separation. He had no intention of taking care of her or thier son. It's been now four years and thei son doesn't even know the father be he refuses to see him.

NO SCRIPTURE IS MENTIONED HERE. There are, however concepts that are taught in scriture. Do you understand the difference, Ol Gord? It's important that you comprehend the naunces of discussion if you want to talk to adults about important things. I didn't offer these concepts as support to prove that "doctrine of Christ" in 2 John 1:9 means the teaching of Jesus. At this point, I didn't offer any proof of what "doctrine of Christ" means in 2 John 1:9. I offered these concepts to make clear what I meant by "the teaching that Jesus is the God-sent Messiah and all that entails". I, like John, was giving the read what he needs to understand what I meant by the term. I offered this explanation for clarity to show that I didn't mean "worship practices," etc. John was not talking about "worship practices," etc when he used the term "doctrine of Christ" in 2 John 1:9. till with me? Do you understand what I'm saying here? With the words in this part of the post, I was explaining myself with the hope that by given more explanation of myself, readers would have a better understanding of the verse.] The "doctrine of Christ" is the teachings about Christ. The "doctrinr of Christ" is not a new set of rules to follow. [This is a literary divice. The writer often oiffers his conclusions both at the beginning and end of his writing. The more you read, the more you'll see this literary device used. Again, we were talking about 2 John 1:9, so I didn't feel the need to restate that. If you look at many of my posts after this. I made a point to alwallys specifically say 2 John 1:9."

Email - Good morning. I have a few questions I wold like you to answer when you have time, please. I know you stay busy alot and I understand you have a lot of questions people are asking you. So, whenever you get the time, I would really would appreciate it. Question 1, I have heard you preach on marriage, divorce and remarriage, and I have studied what you ahve said to be correct based on the Bible, KJV Bible only. Now to the point if you take a man and a woman that are qualified to be married but neither of them are Christians. If later on they get a divorce because of anything but fornication and then one becomes a Christian later on, will the Christian have the right according to the Bible to be married to a Christian? This one question has laid on my mind for quite a while and I have read from preachers and others but I must be sure about the answer. Second Question is may I have the Bible correspondanve mailed to me? Thank you so much for your time and may God bless you and your family.

Facebook Post - Bill Williams posted this. I never ceased to be amazed! The ignorance that abounds in our world is astounding! On so many levels! It seems that there are some who have the mistaken idea that we do not contribute one wit to our salvation, that Jesus did it all on the cross! If one does not have to do something to be saved, then why is not everyone saved? We know that everyone is not going to be saved according to the very words of Jesus (Matthew 7:13,14; Matthew 7:21ff; Matthew 25:46). Therefore, the only possible explanation is that in order to have salvation, there is something required of me and that is called obedience! Without obedience I cannot be saved and neither can anyone else! Any view of salvation that negates or denies personal responsibility is a false view of salvation!

E-Mail - Hello Wesley 
I love listening to you every day that I can. I have listened to you for about 7 years. It sets a very great comfront to my heart. I just have an 8th grade reading level and I hear you a lot. God is not confusing. Please forgive my spelling . The thing that troubles me is I hear, you all might be better to say something about the rapture this bothers me and I know you will speak the truth when or if that takes place. The way they teach is that we will rise and then we will live here on earth for a thousand years. I thought we all go to Heaven not a kingdom going to be on earth. That bothers me a lot.  I'm sorry but I don't buy into that. I know when My Lord Jesus Christ comes I will live in a place he said he went to prepare for us. I don't like to think I will be stuck here on earth, am I'm wrong again? It's very confusing to me . I had a stroke the 5th of March 2016 and the doctors said it was a gift of God for me to have lived and I answered; yes, my Lord needs me for something else. I'm just waiting to see what He has for me to do. And the following Months May 25th my wife got sick. She was sick for 2 days she went to the  ER for a check-up to see why she was hurting that night. She passed away and all I know is that God is my Confront. O, how I miss her so much after 38 years of marriage. I pray to my Lord everyday for strength and to lead me on and this is about all I can tell you about my life. I just wanted to ask you one more thing. When I was 12 years old, I was bound to church and one night my heart bothered me so to a point I couldn't sleep. On the coming Sunday, the way I got saved was and I hope it was right. I was afraid of dying and going to Hell. God dealt with me and I understood what my Jesus went through to save me from hell. I called on God and confessed that He sent His son to a cross to die for a sinner like me. At that point, I called on him and confessed that He sent him and that his blood was shed for me and accepted Him in my life and as the years went on I call it backsliding and all that time I still had knowledge that I needed Him so I fell in tears and repented. And every day I praise his name. When I meet people, I confess to them about a Man called Jesus that can heal you and loves you and the time I called on the Lord in my life. A few weeks I asked the preacher if he would submerge me in water for my confession and in the Name of the Father and the Son and Holy Sprit. You can read this on the air if you like and I enjoy listening to you and Tim. You all are great leaders and the best teaching. I hope to grow stronger in learning the truth. Tell Eddy and Robie I love watching them on Sunday mornings on Biblical View Points. Please explain the Rapture. God Bless you and your work, And I hope to meet you in Heaven. Love you my brother in Christ, Signed.... Please keep me in your prayers Sent from my iPad

E-Mail from Anthony Roberts - ARISE TO LIES, You say you can not find music in church in the New Testament only singing hymns. Well I can not find in the early church electricity, padded pews, air conditioning or a indoor baptism tank and I am sure the men did not wear suits or neckties, but I have got sense enough to understand these things are not sin just because the early church did not have them. Your doctrine is man-made!!!!
Do you believe Jesus lied when he gave the parable of the prodigal son in the new testament Luke 15:11?? The subject of this parable was lost and found and they celebrated with musick and dancing when the lost son came back home and Jesus related this parable to a sinner being lost and then saved. Luke 15:32.
Why would Jesus give a parable with celebrating lost and found with music and dancing when he knew music and dancing was a sin in church. Is not this the Jesus that said "not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But somehow he forget to put in the New Testament scriptures that musical instruments in church is sin and anyone who does such will perish as you proclaim. You hypocrites demand scripture and verse for everything but you have no such scripture in the New Testament to prove your man-made doctrine.
Psalm 150 (Old Testament) declares praise God with musical instruments and you have no scripture in the New Testament to prove this changed. Folks need to study the word and they will find The AUTHORITY of The Church of Christ/ Arise to Truth is a cult with hypocrites and false prophets. The Church of Christ is afraid to be called The Church of Jesus Christ because you do not believe the name of Jesus is the name above every name.
No wonder The Church of Christ services are dead, dry and boring as an atheist funeral. There is no exciting joyful powerful praise or worship of Jesus Christ in your church. Eddy Witchcraft says "Praise with musical instruments is only entertainment" He is entertained by golf balls, a fool could also call the entertainment of golf sin also.The Church of Christ singing hymns sounds like a bunch of Catholic monks and nuns. You folks get excited about the idols of the world but you ban joy and excitement in church. Are you not excited about Jesus conquering death hell and the grave or when a sinner is born again? And you claim praise and worship is only hype. This only proves that you have not been born again or you would show some physical emotion to be lost and then found by the grace of God. You have a man-made doctrine of musical instruments are sin in church. Nowhere in the Bible says that music is a sin in church, you folks attend worldly concerts and listen and dance to country, bluegrass and rock which is played by a bunch of drunks, drugheads and homosexuals who use their talent for Satan, but you can not dance or have musical instruments in your church to give praise to The King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ the one true living God. HOW RIDICULOUS!! No wonder folks are atheist and you loose your members to other denominations, folks are looking for something that is real and exciting. Have you ever seen a crowd gather to watch water freeze? I have seen many come from miles around to watch a fire burn. You need to get the burning fire of Jesus in your bones.
Why do you compare all Apostolic/Pentecostals to false prophets Benny Hinn, Oral Roberts and Jimmy Swaggart. These men are not born again Apostolic/ Pentecostal and have sinned and fallen from grace. You present that no one in The Church of Christ has sinned or sins. If you believe The Church of Christ members are perfect and sinless you must have removed many scriptures from the word of God.
Also Tim Phillips is a brainwashed bald faced liar, he claims he is not a father but I quarantee he is BOTH a cousin, nephew or grandson all in one fleshly body named Tim Phillips. Such as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost all in one flesh named Jesus Christ. Again I say Jesus was his own father , scriptures prove God is a spirit and Mary was found of child of the Holy Ghost. (John 5:43) Jesus was both God and man in the flesh. Why do you deny Jesus was God the father in the flesh????
Yes sir I am shaking in my boots and I will run from a debate with you liars, mockers and blasphemers. I fear God and I am afraid God will strike you dead for blaspheming the Holy Ghost (the third person of the blessed Trinity) Prove me wrong again, read this entire email live on the air without any stupid phones of is it wrong to sleep with my girlfriend.

MATT. 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. COL 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. ISA. 9:6 Why are you ashamed of the name of Jesus? You will not say the name of Jesus when you baptize or pray in the name of Jesus. You are anti-christ.You deny both father and son (1 JOHN 2:22) by denying Jesus is the mighty God (ISA. 9:6) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. You claim you would die for the name of Jesus, what a lie you speak, you will not say the name of Jesus Christ when you baptize or say in the name of Jesus when you pray if you are that ashamed of the name of Jesus and don't believe it is important to speak his name you sure would not die for saying his name!!!!! You are not Jesus name people, why don't you believe Jesus the mighty God is our Lord and saviour? Please don't lie and say you love the name of Jesus when you don't believe you must speak his name.

E-Mail Question - It is very easy to prove that Arise to Truth/Church of Christ is false doctrine.....I dare you to address this email on Arise to Truth without any phone calls changing the subject. You can not prove what you believe is Biblical.
E-Mail Question - Bro. Wesley, I called the program on 1-14-16 with a question concerning divorce and remarriage. The question went like this; first time marriage for husband and wife. The husband is unfaithful and a divorce is sought. But before the divorce takes place the wife if unfaithful. The question is can the wife remarry scripturally? When I called you said she was just as guilty because she did the same thing she accused her husband of. Therefore, she could not remarry. With this I agree. The question I am being asked is what about the vow the two took to be faithful to each other. Since the husband broke the vow first does God recognizes the marriage vow as being broken? Does God see the wife as being free to remarry even if she commits fornication before the divorce is granted since the husband broke the vow first? When does God view the marriage as being over? When the vow is broken or when the divorce papers are signed? I would appreciate your thoughts on this question. I’ll be listening. Thanks, Signed.
Caller - If the couple divorces and it is not for fornication or no fault and they get back to gether do they need to do another ceremony? If there is a physcial separation for a time how is that handled

Caller - If the law of the land goes against Gpd's law we need to obey God's law.
Caller - Asking a question about the Old Testament and marriage when Jesus died. What do we carry over into the New Testament from the Old Testament?
Caller - Would you comment on annullment? Asking questions about MDR.

Caller - I was listening ot the MDR program and this caller gives a senario and asks about fornication before divorce is final.
E-Mail question - Arise to Truth, Question: How can Jesus have two fathers? How dare you call Jesus a bastard son!!!!! Matthew 1:18 (child of the Holy Ghost) Holy Ghost is the father 18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Caller - Just a thought, God cannot be tempted and yet in nother verse Jesus was tempted yet was without sin, how are they going to understand this.
Caller - It would be hard for Christ to sit on the right hand of God,
Caller - Referring to John 17.
Caller - God is a spirit, rerferring to John 1:1.
E-Mail Question - Reviewing the e-mail and now continuing the email - God is the father Ephesians 1:3 - Blessed [be] the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly [places] in Christ. 1 Corinthians 8:6 - But to us [there is but] one God, the Father, of whom [are] all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom [are] all things, and we by him. Ephesians 4:6 - One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all. This explains that the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are one and the same. This just blows away your Catholic Trinity doctrine of three Gods. There is only one God and his name is Jesus and if you deny that Jesus is God , you are antichrist. MY, MY, MY you condemn and judge the Catholics, Mormons and Baptist and yet you uphold their man-made Trinity of three Gods.You say they are on their way to a devils hell and you believe their Godhead???? Sounds like you are double minded and unstable in all your ways. James 1:8.
Caller - How come you can deny God and Christ and be forgiven but deny the Holy Spirit and not be forgien? Caller - In the Revelation it says that "there only worth to take the book out of the hand who holds it".
