One thing I forgot to mention in my last post is that you can broadcast to the entire world and not make a single convert unless the Holy Spirit is in your efforts. It is important to have a sound Gospel message. So much of the Christian material on the Internet is deficient. I am not saying that I am perfect, but I strive to publish only things that glorify God, while I realize that Christians of different theological persuasions might disagree with me. But I am always amazed and gratified whenever a new believer or a seeker after God contacts me via email.
Sometimes I’ve made a theological convert – recently there have been several people who began studying postmillennial eschatology on my web site. I was pleased to find out that I inadvertently made a convert to postmillennialism last summer through the on-line version of my book: The Four Keys to the Millennium. Or at least I influenced someone who was by the grace of God heading in that direction. I encouraged him to post his ideas on my discussion board, which you can see here and here. From what I can see, I predict that this guy will become prolific in his new passion: refuting dispensationalism! Here is another one of the messages he posted that I liked.
Of course, one can be a good Christian and hold to almost any version of eschatology – even dispensationalism. But has The Forerunner website made any converts to Christ? Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to discuss some difficult Bible questions with a Buddhist and another person who is either a new convert or is seeking. I get encouraged when I get any response to an article at the website – positive or negative – but it is especially gratifying to answer questions for new believers who are reading and getting something out of the materials that we offered. For instance, here is a message from Frank Kellam regarding our Second American Revolution website and DVD God’s Law and Society:
Thanks to Jay Rogers, Eric Holmberg and colleagues for this excellent teaching medium with new on-line study guide. We have used it for seven years with abundant fruit, especially among young disciples, both domestic and overseas.
I am not blowing my own horn here as much as trying to show that someone with just a few computer skills can consistently put out ministry materials that can eventually be used of God as much as larger missionary organizations of past years. The computer revolution has changed everything. The point here again is that anyone can use the Internet and reach thousands and even millions of people with the Gospel. Who knows if God will use it? We can only be faithful with the talents we’ve been given – to invest them in the Kingdom of God without hiding them.

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).
Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ultimately, Schaeffer concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute, the truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures.
Available for the first time on DVD, this documentary spectacular also includes intimate in-depth conversations with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. With the on-disc study guide, this presentation forms a unique course of comprehensive study. While this series forms an innovative analysis of the past, this outstanding work is more than history. Each episode focuses on a significant era, yet speaks clearly to 21st-century man with answers for modern problems.

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?
Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?
Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?
These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy
Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.
Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.
Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.
