Friendship-Flourishing Or Forsaking?

Friendship is one of the many blessings that God has given to mankind. When an individual is blessed to find a true friend, then he has found something worth more than gold. The Bible indicates “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother”

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

Evil For Evil

Near the end of what we now call First Thessalonians, the apostle Paul wrote several things that are important in the life of a Christian. One of those things is “See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men” (1

Love Is The Greatest
