The Consequences Of Sin

When you were a child, did your parents ever tell you to do something or face the consequences? I am pretty sure that most readers understood what their parents meant by such a statement. If the instructed chore were not accomplished within a reasonable amount of time, then there was a suitable punishment that awaited.

Why Did God Choose Job?

A study of the book of Job is one that will leave the reader better than he was before. In that book, Job demonstrates a great deal of endurance during a difficult span in his life. His example is one that will help modern man learn how to handle hardships. In the New Testament, James

What Are We Willing To Lose?

The most important decision that a man can make is whether or not to become a Christian. It truly is a matter of everlasting consequences. If the man decides that he wants to go to Heaven, and thus decides to obey the Gospel, he should understand that there are some things that he may have

Lying Is Still A Sin

In different parts of the Bible, God is very plain and firm when it comes to the attitudes and behaviors of those that live sinful lifestyles. Often times, along with the descriptions of their transgressions, there is a foretelling of the punishment that awaits those that will not repent. One of those places of Scripture

The Comfort of the LORD

Each person needs encouragement, motivation, and comfort from time to time. That includes Christians. Even though we are blessed tremendously, we are not immune to the effects of the enormous amount of evil and sadness in the world. With that being true, where do we turn when those things rear their heads? While writing one
