      A Message From Pastor Bruce 
 
 
 
I would like to welcome you to our very unique town of Quartzsite, Arizona. Here you will find exciting places to explore and places to eat. There are local businesses and seasonal vendors from which to shop for that special item for you or a loved one - including tons of rocks!! 
 
As the Pastor of the First Assembly of God Church, I would like to personally invite you to one of our services. We’d like to get to know you, and you to know us. You will find us to be a friendly, loving church that believes the Bible to be the inspired, written word of God; that we are created to worship God in Spirit and in Truth and that we are to help those in need.

Falsehoods about the Bible


Read Psalm 116:1 through 118:29

Published: May 29, 2017

The web page read: “Shortest chapter in the Bible— Psalm 117. Longest chapter in the Bible—Psalm 119. Center chapter of the Bible—Psalm 118. Center verse in the Bible—Psalm 118:8.” The post then suggested that if someone wanted to find God’s perfect will for their life, point them to the center verse of God’s Word.

The Internet post is not accurate. The center of the Bible varies depending on the translation, but it is not Psalm 118, regardless of the translation, and verse eight is not the center verse of the Bible. Also, verse eight is a statement of truth, not God’s will for someone’s life.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans (Psalm 118:8).

A glut of “information” about the Bible is available throughout different forms of media and personal opinions. It is imperative to determine what is actually true. Jesus said He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6), therefore claims need to be verified by the Bible itself.

Challenge for Today: Search the Scriptures to discover what is actually true by comparing claims to the original source.

Quicklook: Psalm 118:5–9
