New congregation begun in Neiva, Huila, Colombia

 
Photograph of Neiva, Huila, Colombia. Neiva is the Capital of the Department of Huila. It is located in the valley of the Magdalena River, in south central Colombia, with a population of about 378,857 inhabitants.

 

Neiva is the Capital of the Department of Huila. It is located in the valley of the Magdalena River, in south central Colombia, with a population of about 378,857 inhabitants. Wikipedia   It is about 300 kilometers / 186.4 miles (about a five-hour drive) from the Colombian capital, Bogotá. Neiva was first founded in 1539 by Juan de Cabrera.

-Neiva, Huila, Colombia. Jan. 02, 2014. “Many thanks, brethren, for providing a means such as this for the edification of the saints. I live in the city of Neiva, Huila, Colombia. A few months ago, I began to learn the truth of the gospel and decided to go out of Babylon, or, as you knew how to call it on this Web Site, an ‘Independent Christian Republic,’ and a month ago I was baptized in a river for the forgiveness of my sins and to have full entrance into the Kingdom of God, and by this means, become a part of his church, which is, from what I have learned, the same today. I feel happy, and, well, we are beginning the church of Christ in Neiva, for my wife and I, with some friends with whom the Lord has permitted me to share the gospel, are meeting together. Thanks, I say again, for providing materials that have been useful for learning God’s will for my life.” Luis Fernando Martínez Muñoz

-Quito, Ecuador. Jan. 04, 2014. “Your Web Pages are very interesting, a medium to which one can connect at any moment, and in any part of the world. May God bless you always, beloved brethren.” Nelson Guillermo Loachamin

-Springfield, MA. Jan. 04, 2014. Telephone call. From a Puerto Rican lady named Mirdan. She was Catholic, and is now visiting a Pentecostal church in Springfield, but is not satisfied. I gave her information on a church of Christ, of 115 members, in West Springfield, and she said her son lives close to the address.

-Place not identified. Jan. 05, 2014. “The Lord Jesus Christ bless you, and permit you to continue writing messages like these for the exhortation of those people who have been, and continue to be, deceived by false doctrines founded on the carnal and material things of this ever more corrupt world, and who set aside the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus our Lord, which is the true gospel. I am a faithful reader of this Web Page. May the God of heavens always guide you through his Holy Spirit and our Lord Jesus Christ, and sustain you every moment. Amen.” Luis Montilla  Referer: "http://www.editoriallapaz.org/reino_venga_tu_VicenteMercado.htm"

-The Referer shows Luis was speaking particularly of some articles written by Vicente Mercado, of Colombia. As I have noted about Vicente in previous reports, he would watch programming on the religious, mostly Pentecostal, TV station Enlace, and then write excellent analyses, which I have published on editoriallapaz.

Mayagüez, Puerto Rico. Jan. 10, 2014. Roberto Chandi called to inquire about the church, noting he had found out about us through editoriallapaz.org. He explained he was looking for the true church, observing that the churches and pastors in his area are all after material things. When I informed him there are two congregations in nearby Aguadilla, he was glad, stating he thought he would have to come all the way to Bayamón to visit a congregation. Mayagüez is about 80 miles to the west of Bayamón.

-Valencia, Carabobo, Venezuela. Jan. 13, 2014. “I like this Web Page a lot. It is of great value to me and the children in my class.” Yenibeth Griceld Rodríguez Hernández. Referer: "http://www.editoriallapaz.org/guias_clases_libro_1.htm

-Yenibeth had reference to Bible study guides, of which we have a sizable number on editoriallapaz.org, in three different formats. Some are PowerPoint presentations, some are visuals prepared in CorelDraw which we are converting to PowerPoint as time allows, and others are text only.

-Paterson, NJ. Jan. 13, 2014. Telephone call. Adrián Ventura called to request more Bible studies, mentioning some titles he had already received, such as the fifteen lesson series on the Lord’s Supper. He said they were very good and that he had learned a lot. When I inquired about where he lives, he replied: Paterson, NJ, adding that there are two Spanish-speaking congregations in that city. I commented that I preached one night, in 1979, in Paterson. That was when I was invited to preach two weeks in New York, one meeting in Lower Manhattan, and one in Amsterdam Ave. On that trip, I carried with me information about a Peruvian pastor in Paterson who had been studying some of our literature. We contacted him and were invited to visit him and his little congregation, where I was asked to speak. As a result of the literature and this visit, pastor Odar, his wife and others became members of the church of Christ. That was thirty-five years ago. Adrián said: “I know this Brother Odar. He is on up in years, is still faithful and preaches some.”Yes, he would be in his eighties. Suggesting that Brother Odar might still remember me, Adrían said: “Yes, he does. He mentions you once in awhile.” Well, that information thrilled me. As we talked, I could distinctly remember Brother Odar, his wife and the place I preached that night.

-Place not identified. Jan. 20, 2014. Congratulations from an atheist! “In the first place, allow me to congratulate you on your investigation. It helped me a lot. But, I would like to clarify that I am an ATHEIST, however I do not believe in any Kingdom of Atheists. We atheists are people tolerant of all human beings and we respect all points of view. I do not believe there are atheists who feel superior to anybody. What an atheist does is reflect and investigate, and not limit himself to only what he hears in some place. What you say about our knowing the Bible is true. Some of us even study theology so that we may have valid arguments for any conversation or debate with whatever believer or whatever religion.” Blasco Bernardi. Referer: "http://www.editoriallapaz.org/ateismo_estadisticas_Apuntes.htm"

-The Referer is to a document of statistics on atheism. Not a small portion of the material on editoriallapaz.org is composed of studies and sermons having to do with atheism, evolution, humanism and hedonism. www.editoriallapaz.org/salon_ateismo.htm is where the subjects are listed. While Blasco characterizes himself as a “tolerant atheist,” adding that he does believe there are atheists who feel superior to other people, well do we know so many of them look upon believers in God as superstitious, ignorant, inferior beings, and not a few ridicule us, even unmercifully. One of the sermons on editoriallapaz.org is “The Kingdom of Atheists versus the Kingdom of God,” available in video and in PowerPoint. Investigating sites of atheists on the Internet, I found one actually called “Kingdom of Atheists.” My reply to Blasco included observations about his perceptions, as well as on the tactic of studying theology to refute believers. As I pointed out to him, so many atheists are fighting the straw men of false theology instead of confronting real truth.

-Place not identified. Jan. 24, 2014. “Very good. I liked them a lot. And the explanations are very clear. Thanks.” Angelita  Referer: "http://www.editoriallapaz.org/daniel_cuatro_bestias.htm"

-The Referer shows Angelita was writing about the studies and graphics on the four beasts of Daniel.

-Place not identified. Jan. 26, 2014. “Interesting, but it is necessary to avoid falling into the same trap of those we judge. A sincere, humble look, with faith, and without hypocrisy, can help us to beseech God for understanding of the Sacred Scriptures. Many have made themselves into owners and lords of the faith of others, with the only purpose of stripping them of their goods.” Alfredo Pérez.

-Advice well taken. Alfredo has reference to “TV preachers…  the illuminated who believe they know everything… ideologues, the wise and the rich,” etc.

-Merlo, San Luís, Argentina. Jan. 31, 2014. “Really, I think the Web Page is very, but very good. Although this is just the third time I have accessed the site, I can see it is enormously interesting for the variety of subjects and the profoundness of the same. In addition, I could see you are against false ministers, making your case with a nobleness that is proper. Thanks for allowing me to be a member [that is, registered to receive info on new subjects added] and download material.”  Ángel Gabriel Gras, pastor of the City of the King Church, of the Assemblies of God. Referer: "http://www.editoriallapaz.org/salon_apocalipsis.htm"

-Well, this is quite a complimentary statement by the pastor of an Assemblies of God church! The Referer points to the extensive content Page of the commentary on Revelation, where not only texts but also graphics are listed, by chapter, with corresponding links. Another content Page lists only texts of the commentary, and another is a listing of Portable Document Files (PDF). We have two chapters of the twelve chapter commentary converted to PDF, and will continue to work, Lord willing, on converting the rest, no small task, to be sure.

He made many trips to Jerusalem, seeing and experiencing the same things as other hundreds of thousands of Israelite pilgrims. In Jerusalem, a cosmopolitan city, he was exposed to peoples of different cultures. Social contact with Israelite young ladies of the period. Thoughts about being engaged and matrimony. Why he never married. The spiritual-moral help Jesus offers young people. Confidently approaching him.]

Historia de la iglesia de Cristo en Jerusalén. Hechos 5.

[History of the church of Christ in Jerusalem. Acts 5.]

Ananías, habiendo mentido al Espíritu Santo referente al dinero devengado por la venta de una propiedad, cae muerto ante los apóstoles y otras personas presentes, gráfica para el comentario de McGarvery sobre Hechos 5, en editoriallapaz.org.

Historia de la iglesia de Cristo en Jerusalén. Unidad y liberalidad extraordinarias de aquella gran congregación. Cristianos venden propiedades y herencias para socorrer a menesterosos. La iglesia crece fenomenalmente. Ananías y Safira mienten al Espíritu Santo, sufriendo, uno tras el otro, un castigo celestial fulminante: ¡caen muertos a los pies de los apóstoles! Saduceos y sacerdotes encarcelan a los apóstoles. Estos son libertados milagrosamente. Llevados al tribunal, se defienden diciendo que es menester obedecer a Dios antes que a los hombres. Sus enemigos en el concilio judío quieren ajusticiarlos. Gamaliel, doctor de la ley, interviene con consejos sabios, evitando semejante fin. “Y ellos partieron de delante del concilio, gozosos de que fuesen tenidos por dignos de padecer afrenta por el Nombre. Y todos los días, en el templo y por las casas, no cesaban de enseñar y predicar a Jesucristo.” Comentario de McGarvey sobre Hechos 4:32-37 y Hechos 5:1-42.

[History of the church of Christ in Jerusalem. Extraordinary unity and liberality of that great congregation. Christians sell their properties and inheritances to help the needy. The church grows phenomenally. Ananias and Sapphira lie to the Holy Spirit, suffering, one after the other, an overpowering punishment from Heaven: They fall dead at the feat of the apostles! Saducees and priests jail the apostles. These are miraculously freed. Taken before the tribunal, they defend themselves, saying it is more important to obey God than men. Their enemies in the Jewish council want to kill them. Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, intervenes with wise counsel, avoiding such an outcome. As they left the council, they rejoiced that they were considered worthy to suffer dishonor for the sake of the name. And every day in the temple and at home they did not cease to teach and proclaim Jesus as the Messiah.” Commentary by J. W. McGarvey on Acts 4:32-37 and Acts 5:1-42.] Note: The whole commentary is on editoriallapaz.org. For some technical reason, this part of it could not be accessed. I redid it and made it available.
