Helping Our Erring Brethren

The fact that Christians commit sins is clearly taught in Scripture. John wrote, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we

Did You “Eat” Your “Let Us”?

Obviously, the title of this article is a play on words. From the time that a child is weaned, parents have the opportunity to introduce different foods to the diet. Often times it is not difficult for the child to enjoy foods that are sweet and tasty. However, the introduction of certain vegetables might be

The Old Man and the New Man (Part 2)

The “new man” must also “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:” (Eph. 4:31). The attitude and behavior of a Christian is to be different from many in the world. Malice has no place in the life of the “new man”. He

The Old Man And The New Man (Part 1)

We are tremendously blessed to have copies of the Bible. In our hands we can hold and read the very Word of God. When we take the opportunity to study our Bibles, we find directions and instructions of how God wants us to live. In what we call the book of Ephesians, the apostle Paul,

Faithful Unto Death

The life of a Christian is portrayed by Paul as a “warfare” (1 Timothy 1:18). As with any “warfare”, a Christian should understand that there is the possibility of casualties and deaths. Paul himself would live his life in such a way that his life was taken due to his faithfulness to God. Paul’s courage

Hindrances To Prayer

For Christians, it is hard to imagine going through our daily lives without the blessing of prayer. However, if we are not careful, our prayers may not be accepted by God. First of all, Christians need to make sure that they address prayer to the proper One. Can you imagine what it would be like

Love Enough to Hate

Under the idea of inclusion and equality, the world has done a good job of conditioning our society that there should be no “hate”. While I readily admit that some forms of “hate” are appalling and unrighteous, the Bible does not teach that everything should be accepted just because it is widely embraced. It might

Pure In Speech

Unfortunately, it has become quite common to hear an abundance of vulgarity come from the mouths of mankind. It rears its head not only amongst men, but we even hear it spew from the mouths of women and children. One cannot remain on a middle school, high school, or college campus for very long without

Not As Uncertainly

Have you ever wondered whether all of your faithfulness is really worth it? Have the seeds of doubt entered into your mind? More than likely you are not alone in your thoughts. At some time or other, the Christian is going to notice that he is abstaining from sinful things while non-Christians revel in worldly

A Fresh Start

At some point in time, all accountable individuals unfortunately make the mistake of committing sin. The Bible makes it clear what sin is. “Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law” (1 John 3:4). Also, “All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death” (1
