Drawing Nigh To God

How do you envision God? Do you think God is some far off Being that is uninterested and uninvolved in His creation? Believe it or not, there is a religious view that largely adheres to that type of thinking. It is called Deism. One of the most well known tenets of some Deists is that

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

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”

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

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

The Captain Of Their Salvation

There are many different occasions in which the Bible records details of our Savior. Each of those references is worthy of our attention and study. After all, Christians should be striving to be more like Jesus on a regular basis. The writer of Hebrews stated, “But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower

A Wall Broken Down

One of the defining moments of the 1980’s was when President Ronald Reagan implored Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. It was seen as an opportunity for freedom to flourish in Germany. After the end of WWII, the wall separated communist East Germany from the more democratic West Germany. For years, individuals longed

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

Blessed And Thankful

It is good to be reminded frequently just how blessed Christians really are. Christians are given all spiritual blessings (Eph. 1:3). Likewise, God blesses the faithful with the necessities of this life (Matt. 6:24-34). Above all men, we should be extremely thankful. Sadly though, there are times when we lose sight of our blessings. By
