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

Is It Really That Hard To Understand?

How many times have you heard it? “The Bible is just too hard for me to understand?” There are multitudes of individuals that have convinced themselves of such. Is it true though? Let us look at some verses and see just how difficult they are to understand. Next, what about these verses: “And he answered

The Vanity Of Their Mind

When one studies the New Testament, he will find certain phrases that are very poetic. Take for instance the following passage in the book of Ephesians: “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind” (Eph. 4:17). There it is,

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

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

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,

The Grace Of God

One of the simplest, but often misunderstood attributes of God is His grace. The Psalmist wrote, “…the LORD is gracious and full of compassion” (Psm. 111:4). That indicates that God bestows much on mankind that man does not deserve. If man received what he deserves, then mankind would have been destroyed a long time ago.

Will God Ignore Sin Because He Loves Us?

The love of God is an amazing thing! God’s love is so great that John was inspired to write, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Jesus went on to say, “Greater love hath no
