Read It To Me Again

When you were young, did you ever have a favorite “bedtime” story that you enjoyed.  Maybe it was about a knight and a princess, or perhaps it was about Jack and a beanstalk.  Whatever it might have been, did it seem like you ever tired of hearing it?  When your Mom and Dad read you

Calling Out False Teachers

From time to time, there are certain individuals who express a concern about identifying and exposing those who teach doctrines contrary to the Law of Christ.  Sometimes the thought might be that by doing such, matters might get worse.  While that may seem true in the immediate future, we must never stop taking a stand

More Preaching

          We live in a time when “old fashioned” preaching is ridiculed and disliked by so many.  Some, so called preachers, have traded the Scriptures for fables, “feel good stories”, jokes and the like.  There is a trend among some preachers to speak only “positively”.  The idea of repentance and change

Exceeding Great and Precious Promises

Some of you have lived in a time where a man’s word was his bond.  An affirmation and a handshake were suitable to seal a deal.  In today’s society, with lying being so rampant and commonplace, we sometimes do not know who, or what, to believe.  With that being said, I am absolutely certain that

Rooted And Built Up

A study of the letters that Paul wrote is always beneficial and educational.  There are so many different aspects of the Christian life that he addresses.  Keep in mind, that although he was the earthly penman, the Scriptures came from God (1 Cor. 14:37).  With that being understood, let us notice a challenging command that

False Hope

Did you know that it is possible to believe a lie?  It is true!  Yet, just because I believe something, that does not make it so.  As you can imagine, there are numerous problems that can arise with such instances.  The worst of these problems is when there are spiritual consequences.  Right now, because they

The Will Of The Lord

As Paul continued his work in the first century, it happened that he made a stop in Caesarea.  While there, a man named Agabus came from Judaea with a sobering prophecy.  It is recorded, “And when he was come unto us, he took Paul’s girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus

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

Serving God And Others

Being a Christian is a wonderful thing!  Having the forgiveness of sins, having been born again, and having fellowship with God and other Christians are just some of the reasons that living the life of a child of God is so fantastic.  However, being a Christian also means that I am supposed to “deny self”

Deliver Such An One Unto Satan

How do you think you would feel if you gave your children a command to obey, but then they simply ignored the command?  I imagine that it would upset you.  Now, imagine how God must feel when He gives us a command, and then we refuse to obey it.  Anger, disappointment, and hurt are just
