Legendary Preacher Charles Stanley Dies at 90

Founder of In Touch Ministries and senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta for nearly 50 years Charles Stanley died Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. peacefully at his home, his website charlesstanley.com reported.

Stanley spent 65 years in the ministry, and his website said he modeled his ministry after the apostle Paul’s message in Acts 20:24: “Life is worth noting unless I used it for doing the work assigned by me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God’s mighty kindness and love.” (TLB)

Stanley is survived by his son, Andy, and daughter, Becky. Andy Stanley is the senior pastor at North Point Ministries, a nondenominational evangelical Christian church with several campuses across the north metro Atlanta area.

The Common Misconception About Understanding God’s Ways 

One common misconception held among Christians is that man cannot possibly understand God’s ways. They often say that we’re unable to know His thoughts or His plans for our lives.

It’s interesting to note that even the most devoted believer will approach this topic with the Bible verse found in Isaiah 55:8–9 which says:

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”

Will You Hear ‘Well Done’ or Be Well Done?

I have had the blessing of being able to travel around the world teaching in many synagogues and churches.

One of my favorite things to do while I am sharing is to hold a question and answer session, which is something I do at my home synagogue every Saturday morning. Quite often as I am sharing, especially at churches, someone will ask me about my commitment to pursue a lifestyle that honors the Torah.

The question is usually presented something like, “Why do you feel a need to observe the Old Testament/Covenant commandments seeing that we live within the New Testament/Covenant?”
