Beware Of False Teachers And False Doctrine

The Bible is the most amazing book that has ever been written.  Time after time, situations of life arise, and the Bible always has the answers that we need.  With that being stated, I wonder just how often some people even read the Bible.  I know that the masses of humanity are largely ignorant of

Seasoned With Salt

When studying the life of Jesus, it is beneficial to notice the different ways that He responded to various people and scenarios.  Each time, our Lord spoke and acted perfectly.  Take for instance, the discussion with the Samaritan woman at the well.  Jesus knew how to start a conversation by saying “Give me to drink”

When God Shuts The Door

At different times, I, and others, have prayed to the Father for “doors” to be opened so that good works can be done.  Through His providence, God has done just that over the years.  However, we need to realize that the same God Who opens those “doors” is the same God Who can shut “doors”

Thy First Love

            The book of Revelation is a great study about the victory that faithful Christians enjoy.  In the very first verse, the apostle John made it clear that the book is “signified” (Rev. 1:1).  As one will notice, the root of “signified” is sign.  John was letting the reader know that the things contained in

Why Should I Become A Christian?

“Tell me, why should I become a Christian?”  This question is reasonable and answerable.  Peter explained that we should “…be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear” (1 Pet. 3:15).  Therefore, let me begin my defense of

The Power Of God

          For most of us, we have heard and/or read Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15-16.  In both of those accounts, Jesus is on record as having commanded either teaching or preaching.  In Mark’s account, Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). 

Child Of God Or Child Of The Devil?

Amidst all of the confusion and noise that this world has, you might be surprised to realize how simple some things really are.  Take for instance, the world’s population is close to eight billion now.  Yet, all of those people can be classified into one of two categories.  The first category is a child of

Yes, It Is Still There

When writing to the church in Corinth, the apostle Paul dealt with many problems and errors that existed in that congregation. One specific issue involved a son and his father’s wife. The record of this teaching is found in First Corinthians chapter five. Paul did not “beat around the bush” with this issue. He got

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

It is a sad commentary on our society that many people just assume that lying is part of everyday life. It has become so common that many no longer see the damage that every lie causes. There are some who have convinced themselves that lying under certain circumstances is not only allowable, but favorable. In
