Bible Tracts Inc. was founded in 1938 through the preaching of our founder, Evangelist Paul Levin. As people came to Christ, they wanted to be able to tell others how to be born again. As they saw the transforming power of the Gospel, they wanted clear, simple gospel tools so they too could see folks come to Christ.  Since its inception, millions of Gospel tracts have gone all over the world in various languages. All of these tracts have been provided entirely free of charge. Bible Tracts Inc. is supported by churches and individuals who have a desire to see the world come to Christ.

Are we going to church?

Are we going to church today?

Is this question asked in your home?  Some food for thought!

“Christians should be committed to their local church, involved in their local church, and supportive of their local church. This requires regular church attendance. A believer will naturally love his brothers and sisters in Christ (1 John 4:21), and that love will manifest itself in a desire to fellowship, not avoidance. When the church is praising the Lord, all believers should want to join in the praise; when the church is praying for others, all believers should want to join in the prayer; when the church is studying the Word, all believers should want to join in the learning.

We live in a world of distractions. So many things call us away from our commitments, our involvement, and our support of the local church: sports activities, work schedules, community projects, etc.—the list is never-ending. There are valid reasons for missing a church service, and we must avoid legalism in such matters. At the same time, we should make sure absences are the exception, not the rule. Each believer should examine his own heart to determine his motives for missing church. It could be that a rearrangement of priorities is in order.”

Someone mentioned to me, “Have a nice Ash Wednesday.” Made me wonder??

Question: “What is Ash Wednesday?”

Answer: Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. Its official name is “Day of Ashes,” so called because of the practice of rubbing ashes on one’s forehead in the sign of a cross. Since it is exactly 40 days (excluding Sundays) before Easter Sunday, it will always fall on a Wednesday—there cannot be an “Ash Thursday” or “Ash Monday.” The Bible never mentions Ash Wednesday—for that matter, it never mentions Lent.

The following link is good information.
