Are we confident that our light is bright
Vol. 47 June 21, 2022 Number 24
THREE LEVELS OF FAITH
Benjamin R. Phillips
A friend and fellow preacher recently relayed to me a bit of wisdom an
elder gave him one day in passing. This elder told him that there are three
levels of faith and confusion of those faiths is what is causing so much trouble
in the church. The three levels named by the elder were personal faith,
congregational faith, and “the Faith.” It struck me because I had never heard
this put in such fashion.
The individual faith is that which a person holds within himself. It
may not be something that he can prove scripturally, but he believes it with
every ounce of his being. Two Biblical examples of this individual faith can be
found in Romans 14: the one who would not eat meat offered to idols and the
one who exalted certain days. Paul did not condemn either of these beliefs but
taught the brethren to bear with one another and recognize the differences.
Our modern example might be one who believes you should not wear shorts
at all, no matter how modest they are. Can this be proved from the text? No.
But is it wrong for them to personally believe it? Not according to Paul.
The congregational faith is that which a congregation holds
corporately, but again is not necessarily part of God’s commandments.
Elderships are responsible for their individual congregations and must make
the appropriate decisions. One such Biblical instance appears to be the head
coverings in the church at Corinth (1 Corinthians 11:5-6), which appear to
have been tied to a social situation in the city of Corinth. In another part of the
Roman empire a woman being uncovered may not have been the same issue.
Our modern equivalent could be an eldership that requires the King James
Version to be used from the pulpit. The Bible does not specify translation, but
elderships have taken such efforts to prevent perverse modern translations
from invading the congregation. This is well within their power of oversight
(Acts 20:28).
“The Faith” is that which was delivered by God for all time for all
people (Jude 3). It is that system of faith by which all men are saved and by
which men serve God (Acts 6:7; Romans 1:5). It is that faith in which we are to
continue and stand (1 Corinthians 16:13; Colossians 1:23). The faith is not
negotiable It was given by God, stands upon God, and will forever be upheld
by God. The faith is that in which we are to be united (1 Corinthians 1:10).

“Thou shalt observe to do all that they inform thee”
(Deut. 17:10)
--article continued from page 1--
One’s individual faith and a
congregation’s faith must adhere to “the Faith.”
The problem is that many are taking their
individual faith and trying to apply it to others,
or a congregation is trying to take its beliefs and
force them upon other congregations. A study of
Romans 14:1-15:13 will show that we are to
“receive one another, just as Christ also received
us, to the glory of God” (Romans 15:7). And such
reception should not be so that we might dispute
our belief with the other person (Romans 14:1).
We need to accept each other and our individual
beliefs as long as they do not violate “the Faith.”
So, the next time you think about
condemning a brother for his actions, you had
better check to be sure your condemnation is a
matter of “the Faith” and not a matter of your
faith. Remember, “So then each of us shall give
account of himself to God. Therefore, let us not
judge one another anymore, but rather resolve
this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to
fall in our brother’s way” (Romans 14:12-13).

Fellowship for 40s & 50s
Age Group
We have decided to
start a Friday night
fellowship meal for
those in their 40s and
50s. The elders have
agreed and we will have
our first meal at the
building in the multi-
purpose room this Friday, June 24th beginning at
6:30 pm. We ask that you please bring a finger food
and join in for a fun night of card games, food and
much needed fellowship. Also, if you have friends
who are not members of our congregation or friends
who are members who haven’t been active for a
while, please reach out and invite them. This could
make for an excellent way to break the ice for an
invitation to worship with us. We plan to have these
every other month. If you have any questions at all,
please see Heather DuBois or Amy Voyles.
Congregational Singing
The Danville congregation
in Biggersville will host a
gospel singing this Friday,

EMYG News
VBS 2022 was a huge success! Being able to help
with this VBS, Journey through James, was a blessing
to so many kids, as well as myself. Learning about the
lessons James has for us was an amazing experience.
Alex Blackwelder did a great job planning and
executing the whole ordeal. Big thanks go out to all
those who helped with planning, teaching, and
wrangling kids’ activities throughout the week. Thank
you to all those who helped us film Booster's wild
journey through Tupelo. VBS was a great way for me
to grow personally by watching how the kids truly
soaked up the word of God. Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a
child in the way he should go: even when he is old he
will not depart from it." Thank you, East Main, for
helping to make this such a success! Alex Tucker

On a Hill Far Away
Few songs have words of such intensity as these
written by George Bennard: “On a hill far away stood an
old rugged cross, the emblem of suffering and shame.”
As our mind’s eye catches a glimpse of Calvary, we see
the great cost at which our salvation came.
Here is a story that brought tears to my eyes. The
author is Tim Miller from Cranberry Township,
Pennsylvania (related in Leadership magazine).
“My nine-year-old daughter Jennifer was looking
forward to our family’s mini-vacation. But when our
vacation arrived, she became ill, and a long-anticipated
day at Sea World was replaced by an all-night series of
CAT scans, X-rays, and blood work at a hospital.
As morning approached, the doctors told my
exhausted little girl that she needed to have one more
test, a spinal tap. The procedure would be painful, they
said. The doctor then asked me if I planned to stay in the
room. I nodded my head, knowing I could not leave
Jennifer alone during the ordeal.
The doctors gently asked Jennifer to remove all her
clothing. She looked at me with childlike modesty as if
to ask if that were all right. Then they had her curl into a
tiny ball. I moved my face as close to hers as I could and
hugged her.
When the needle went in, Jennifer cried. As the
searing pain increased, she sobbed and cried repeatedly,
“Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,” her voice becoming more
earnest with each word. It was as if she was saying, “Oh,
Daddy, this hurts soooo bad. Please, can’t you do
something?”
My tears mingled with hers. My heart was broken. I
felt nauseated. Because I loved her, I was allowing her to
go through the most agonizing experience of her life,
and I could hardly stand it. (We later learned that
Jennifer’s illness was not serious.)
In the middle of the spinal tap, my thoughts went to
the cross of Christ. What unspeakable pain both the Son
and the Father went through at the cross for our sakes (2
Cor. 9:15).”
We owe a debt that can never be fully paid—the best
we can do is give ourselves as living sacrifices (Rom.
12:1-2). —Garvis Semore

East Main Informer, 6-21-22.pdf

  • 1. 0………. 4 --article continued from page 1— Are we confident that our light is bright Vol. 47 June 21, 2022 Number 24 THREE LEVELS OF FAITH Benjamin R. Phillips A friend and fellow preacher recently relayed to me a bit of wisdom an elder gave him one day in passing. This elder told him that there are three levels of faith and confusion of those faiths is what is causing so much trouble in the church. The three levels named by the elder were personal faith, congregational faith, and “the Faith.” It struck me because I had never heard this put in such fashion. The individual faith is that which a person holds within himself. It may not be something that he can prove scripturally, but he believes it with every ounce of his being. Two Biblical examples of this individual faith can be found in Romans 14: the one who would not eat meat offered to idols and the one who exalted certain days. Paul did not condemn either of these beliefs but taught the brethren to bear with one another and recognize the differences. Our modern example might be one who believes you should not wear shorts at all, no matter how modest they are. Can this be proved from the text? No. But is it wrong for them to personally believe it? Not according to Paul. The congregational faith is that which a congregation holds corporately, but again is not necessarily part of God’s commandments. Elderships are responsible for their individual congregations and must make the appropriate decisions. One such Biblical instance appears to be the head coverings in the church at Corinth (1 Corinthians 11:5-6), which appear to have been tied to a social situation in the city of Corinth. In another part of the Roman empire a woman being uncovered may not have been the same issue. Our modern equivalent could be an eldership that requires the King James Version to be used from the pulpit. The Bible does not specify translation, but elderships have taken such efforts to prevent perverse modern translations from invading the congregation. This is well within their power of oversight (Acts 20:28). “The Faith” is that which was delivered by God for all time for all people (Jude 3). It is that system of faith by which all men are saved and by which men serve God (Acts 6:7; Romans 1:5). It is that faith in which we are to continue and stand (1 Corinthians 16:13; Colossians 1:23). The faith is not negotiable It was given by God, stands upon God, and will forever be upheld by God. The faith is that in which we are to be united (1 Corinthians 1:10). --article continued page 2-- ELDERS Mike Childers ............. 397-6453 Dennis Hallmark......... 255-5557 Mark Hitt .................... 322-0917 Bobby Lindley ............ 260-9193 DEACONS Wade Bryan ................ 419-5552 Ricky Lindsey............. 255-8136 Jeff Mansel.................. 871-0357 Jimmy Spearman ........ 840-8957 Michael Wilson........... 891-0891 MINISTERS Barry Kennedy....(931)787-7108 Alex Blackwelder (731)879-9196 SECRETARY Renee Childers Office.......................... 842-6116 Fax .............................. 842-7091 E-MAIL eastmaincoc38804@gmail.com WEB PAGE eastmaincoc.com SUNDAY SERVICES Worship........................9:00 a.m. Bible class..................10:15 a.m. Worship......................11:15 a.m. Singing or Devotional Last Sunday of the Month MID-WEEK SERVICES Wednesday Classes......7:00 p.m. 1606 East Main Street P. O. Box 1761 Tupelo, Mississippi 38802 “Thou shalt observe to do all that they inform thee” (Deut. 17:10)
  • 2. --article continued from page 1-- One’s individual faith and a congregation’s faith must adhere to “the Faith.” The problem is that many are taking their individual faith and trying to apply it to others, or a congregation is trying to take its beliefs and force them upon other congregations. A study of Romans 14:1-15:13 will show that we are to “receive one another, just as Christ also received us, to the glory of God” (Romans 15:7). And such reception should not be so that we might dispute our belief with the other person (Romans 14:1). We need to accept each other and our individual beliefs as long as they do not violate “the Faith.” So, the next time you think about condemning a brother for his actions, you had better check to be sure your condemnation is a matter of “the Faith” and not a matter of your faith. Remember, “So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. Therefore, let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way” (Romans 14:12-13). ~~~~~~~~~ Family Breakfast Our monthly family breakfast will be held this Sunday, June 26 in the multipurpose room from 8:15-8:45 a.m., before worship services. A light break- fast will be provided. Please come and enjoy this period of fellowship. Sympathy We extend our sympathy to Ashley Davis in the loss of her grandmother, Lynda Coleman, on June 13. Funeral services were held in New Albany June 16. Tuesday Mornings with the Master Don’t forget Tuesday Mornings with the Master every Tuesday in the multipurpose room from 10-11 am. Anyone who can come, and help is welcomed. Congratulations Congratulations to Hallie Donald & Logan Brown who were united in marriage June 18 in Amory. We wish for them a long life of happiness together. Fellowship for 40s & 50s Age Group We have decided to start a Friday night fellowship meal for those in their 40s and 50s. The elders have agreed and we will have our first meal at the building in the multi- purpose room this Friday, June 24th beginning at 6:30 pm. We ask that you please bring a finger food and join in for a fun night of card games, food and much needed fellowship. Also, if you have friends who are not members of our congregation or friends who are members who haven’t been active for a while, please reach out and invite them. This could make for an excellent way to break the ice for an invitation to worship with us. We plan to have these every other month. If you have any questions at all, please see Heather DuBois or Amy Voyles. Congregational Singing The Danville congregation in Biggersville will host a gospel singing this Friday, June 24 from 7:00-8:30 a.m. Refreshments will be served in the fellowship hall following the singing. Girls’ Joyful Rebellion The girls’ Joyful Rebellion group are invited to Natalie Mansel’s home this Sunday, June 26 at 3:00 p.m. for a pool party. Please bring your own towel and sunscreen. See Cassie Blackwelder for more information.

Being able to help with this VBS, Journey through James, was a blessing to so many kids, as well as myself. Learning about the lessons James has for us was an amazing experience. Alex Blackwelder did a great job planning and executing the whole ordeal. Big thanks go out to all those who helped with planning, teaching, and wrangling kids’ activities throughout the week. Thank you to all those who helped us film Booster's wild journey through Tupelo. VBS was a great way for me to grow personally by watching how the kids truly soaked up the word of God. Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: even when he is old he will not depart from it." Thank you, East Main, for helping to make this such a success! Alex Tucker ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ On a Hill Far Away Few songs have words of such intensity as these written by George Bennard: “On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross, the emblem of suffering and shame.” As our mind’s eye catches a glimpse of Calvary, we see the great cost at which our salvation came. Here is a story that brought tears to my eyes. The author is Tim Miller from Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania (related in Leadership magazine). “My nine-year-old daughter Jennifer was looking forward to our family’s mini-vacation. But when our vacation arrived, she became ill, and a long-anticipated day at Sea World was replaced by an all-night series of CAT scans, X-rays, and blood work at a hospital. As morning approached, the doctors told my exhausted little girl that she needed to have one more test, a spinal tap. The procedure would be painful, they said. The doctor then asked me if I planned to stay in the room. I nodded my head, knowing I could not leave Jennifer alone during the ordeal. The doctors gently asked Jennifer to remove all her clothing. She looked at me with childlike modesty as if to ask if that were all right. Then they had her curl into a tiny ball. I moved my face as close to hers as I could and hugged her. When the needle went in, Jennifer cried. As the searing pain increased, she sobbed and cried repeatedly, “Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,” her voice becoming more earnest with each word. It was as if she was saying, “Oh, Daddy, this hurts soooo bad. Please, can’t you do something?” My tears mingled with hers. My heart was broken. I felt nauseated. Because I loved her, I was allowing her to go through the most agonizing experience of her life, and I could hardly stand it. (We later learned that Jennifer’s illness was not serious.) In the middle of the spinal tap, my thoughts went to the cross of Christ. What unspeakable pain both the Son and the Father went through at the cross for our sakes (2 Cor. 9:15).” We owe a debt that can never be fully paid—the best we can do is give ourselves as living sacrifices (Rom. 12:1-2). —Garvis Semore Via House to House Heart to Heart, Archive 2267
