  • What Does the Roman Catholic Church Believe About Justification? October 18, 2019
    The gospel of Jesus Christ is always at risk of distortion. It became distorted in the centuries leading up to the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century. It became distorted at innumerable other points of church history, and it is often distorted today. This is why Martin Luther said the gospel must be defended in every generation. It is the center […]

  • When We Praise October 18, 2019
    When nine-year-old Willie was abducted from his front yard in 2014, he sang his favorite gospel song Every Praise over and over again.

C2TV ministry is designed to strengthen your spiritual walk. This ministry newsletter began in 1999, first known as the Family Tree Ministry. The goal is to be a connection builder, serving as a spiritual connection between people and matters of faith. Our mission is simple: Connecting men and women to life-changing faith in Jesus – encouraging them to impact their community with His values, ethics and love. In the age of technology the newsletter has transformed into a blog with many more features that the old paper format couldn't provide. In November 2012, The Family Tree Ministry was renamed to "Connect to the Vine - (C2TV)" based on the Book of John, Chapter 15, where we are told to remain connected to Christ. In October 2016, this blog was renamed to "Connecting Champions to the Vine - C2TV." This change came about with the adding of the ADVOCARE bar at the top of the blog site. Originally focused on a ministry outreach to family members, C2TV has expanded to reach all those whom we come into contact with. Our prayer is that this blog becomes a means of illuminating God's work in our culture and encouraging one another to stand firm in Him! At the heart of the spiritual journey is the understanding that it is a journey. None of us are perfect. Once we become believers, we are not expected to achieve instant spiritual maturity. Rather, the Christian life is a process involving both our attention (2 Corinthians 7:1) and God’s work in us (Philippians 1:6). And it has more to do with opportunity and intentionality than with age (1 Timothy 4:12).

HELL_BC5Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come!” 1 Thessalonians 1:10

Salvation includes deliverance from Hell. Of all dreadful places–Hell is the most dreadful. No one figure can give us an adequate idea of it. It is the prison, where God’s enemies are confined. It is a lake of fire and brimstone, where the traitors against the Savior’s throne and government are punished. There, all is dark, dreary, agonizing, and horrible! Despair reigns, desperation works, and horror preys upon its victims. The worm of a guilty conscience never dies. The fire of of God’s just wrath is never quenched. Prepared for the devil and his angels–Hell is now destined to be the eternal habitation of every impenitent sinner. In Hell, the sufferer is forever shut out from the glorious presence of God–and is shut in with devils and damned souls.

Hell is a prison where there is . . .
no order–but horror,
no voice–but of blasphemers cursing God, themselves, and all around them,
no sounds–but the howling of the tortured and the torturers,
no society–but devils and the damned–who being tormented themselves, forever torment others!

There sinners experience . . .
punishment–without pity;
misery–without mercy;
sorrow–without support;
crying–without comfort;
mischief–without measure;
torment–without ease;
and despair–without hope!

The wrath of God will seize upon body and soul like fire! In that flame, the sufferer is . . .
forever burning–but is never consumed;
forever dying–but never dead;
forever writhing in the pangs of the second death–and never freed from those pangs; nor does he ever know an end of his pains.

Who can fairly represent the horrors of that horrible place, where Divine wrath which has been accumulating for ages–bursts forth without control or cessation! Such is the desert of sin, and such the doom of every unconverted sinner.

But salvation is a deliverance from Hell–complete and eternal deliverance! Oh what a mercy is this! One would think that everyone who heard of it would rejoice, embrace the glad tidings, and escape from the wrath to come!

But this is not the case! There is a Deliverer–but He is despised. There is free deliverance–but it is slighted. Men choose eternal death, rather than eternal life!

What a mercy to be delivered from Hell!
