Lake Chapala Baptist

Pastor John Linton will continue with the expository series on the Epistle of Ephesians (6:10-18). Now approaching the end of the Epistle, the series turns to the Christian in complete armor that explains and equips the Christian for a spiritual contest that cannot be avoided. This week will be the second sermon dealing with the belt of truth, which keeps the Christian from the defilement of sin. When temptation bears down upon the believer, a false heart will put him to flight, but one surrounded by truth will stand.
Come join us in authentic worship and Biblical exposition of the Scriptures to the glory of God – Sola Fide.

It seems to me that there’s some confusion about meditation in Christian circles. Most of the focus on meditation has to do with Eastern meditation in Eastern religions. But the Bible also advocates meditation. Is there a difference between Eastern type meditation and Christian meditation? I think so. One major difference is what you are meditating on. Eastern philosophy encourages you to look within yourself and seek to “become.” But the Bible advocates looking outside yourself and filling your mind with biblical truth.
The church meets online every Sunday at 10 a.m.
