“Jesus was happy to address a ‘SPH ministerial.’  He could speak on a non-offensive subject.” OR “Jesus brought in Dr. X, a SPH leader, for His disciples to hear.” NOT!

If you read that, it was a FALSE gospel. Jesus condemned the important “church” of His day (Mat 23.13ff) & (Luk 11.44), the “SPH” i.e. Scribes, Pharisees, Hypocrites.  It is a serious problem when “holiness institutions” bring in Dr. X who is connected with a group that has backslidden from preaching/living True Holiness.

Books are made of mere paper,

Grammatically smeared with ink.

They can be destroyed by fire,

Or by water, one might think.

But there is a Book whose words

Transcending cover and page 

Will survive catastrophe,

Outlasting the latest age.

 Standing on the promises of Christ my King,

Through eternal ages let His praises ring,

Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.

Refrain: Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God my Savior;

Standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.
