Romans 3:3-3, “For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith [truth] of God without effect? God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.”IMG_5720

God is true; indeed, He is most true. Infinitely true! He is so true that He is immune from all deception. We are exposed to a legion of lies, a plethora of pretences. But God cannot be misled or tricked. “Be not deceived: God is not mocked! For whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.”

God is is so true that He is incapable of falsehood. It is written in Scripture, “God, who cannot lie.” And “it is impossible fore God to lie.” Good men, however good they may have been, however well-proven their track record, even they can lie. Peter, the chief disciple among the rest, could hardly believe that he would deny Jesus. But so it was! That very night, just as Jesus predicted, he denied his master three times. But God is altogether incapable of lying. “In him is light, and there is no darkness in him at all.” Is this a defect in God? Is this inability a broad crack in the wall of His omnipotence? By no means! As Ambrose put it, “What then is impossible to him? Nothing that is difficult for his power but only that which is contrary to his nature.” Would you trust God implicitly if He could lie? Indeed, the Bible says that God is so true that when He swears, He can swear by none other than by Himself!

Further, God is is so true that it is even morally unthinkable for him to deceive. The very idea that God could be false, contradict Himself, deny Himself, or in any way to allow His creatures to subvert or make null and void any of His truth, is wicked. This is clearly taught above in Rom. 3:4-6. “God forbid!” It is brazen blasphemy to suggest or even entertain the thought that God could lie.

You and I are lost in the wilds of falsehood, deceived and deceiving each other – and ourselves! Only God, only His Son Jesus Christ, the last and great Prophet who came into the world to bear witness of the truth, only He can banish the lies, the soul-damning lies that have us in bondage and will seal our doom. He is the true Light. Emerge from your darkness and follow Him!

“El mundo es como un gran fuego, si alguno con frio no se acerca demasiado, le calienta y le consuela; mas si entra en su medio, le quema.  Los que se sujetan casualmente del mundo, y se alejan a la distancia apropiada, son beneficiados por la misma; pero los que se arrojan en su medio, son consumidos, y perdidos para siempre.”

-Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661)

“The world is like a great fire, if a cold man stands at a reasonable distance, it warms and comforts him; but if he go into the midst of it, it burns him. Men who have an indifferent hold of the world, and stand at a proper distance from it, are benefited thereby; but those who cast themselves into the midst of it, are thereby swallowed up, and for ever lost.”

-Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661)

IMG_3868[1]“Cuan grande debe ser ese amor que produjo el bello tejido del universo, sin la ayuda de causa material alguna!  Esto proclama que es verdaderamente infinito: pues nada menos podria unir extremos tan distantes como el nada y el ser…Es por el Poder Divino que los objetos celestiales had rodado constantes en sus esferas por tantas edades, sin gastarse o salirse de su propio curso; y que los elementos tumultuosos han perseverado en su orden hasta el dia de hoy.  El preserva las alianzas de la naturaleza, pone fronteras al mar rugiente, y lo mantiene dentro de sus limites con una faja de arena.”

-Thomas Boston (1676-1732)

IMG_3868[1]“O how great must that power be, which produced the beautiful fabric of the universe, without the concurrence of any material cause! This proclaims it to be truly infinite: for nothing less could make such distant extremes as nothing and being to meet together. . . It is by the Divine Power that the heavenly bodies have constantly rolled about in their spheres for so many ages, without wearing or moving out of their proper course; and that the tumultuous elements have persisted in their order to this very day. He preserves the confederacies of nature, sets bounds to the raging sea, and keeps it within its limits by a girdle of sand.”

– Thomas Boston (1676-1732)

Salmo 001

IMG_2435-e1555036044350Celebramos el sacramento de la Cena del Señor tres veces por año, normalmente el tercer dia del Señor (Domingo) de Enero, Mayo, y Septiembre.  El Domingo anterior, tenemos un servicio ‘preparatorio,’ en el cual a los miembros se les exhorta que examinen y preparen sus corazones para el sacramento.  Se invita a los comunicantes celebrar la Cena del Señor que se conmemora alrededor de una mesa comun al frente de la iglesia.  La celebracion utiliza un pan comun y una copa comunal de vino las cuales son distribuidas por turno a cada miembro sentado a la mesa.

Todos los que son miembros completos en buen estado de esta o cualquier otra congregacion de la Iglesia Reformada Presbyteriana son invitados celebrar la Cena del Señor con nosotros.  Miembros de otras iglesias que confiesan el mismo evangelio y que visitan primero com los ancianos tambien pueden participar.

Niños bautizados de la iglesia, mientras no elegibles para venir hasta que lleguen a la IMG_2437-e1555036180446edad mayor y den una profesion creible de su propia fe, junto con otras visitas que se les pide observar la celebracion son ehortados buscar a Cristo.  Miembros bautizados o visitas regulares interesadas en unirse a la iglesia deben de hablar con el ministro para arreglas un tiempo de instruccion en las cosas basicas de la fe Cristiana y los beneficios y responsabilidades de la membresia.
