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

More Or Less

While I am not against the Bible being printed in chapters and verses, sometimes man’s attempt to make things easier can make things more difficult. There are different times in the Bible when the writer continues his teaching into the next designated chapter. If we are not careful, then we could mistakenly believe that just

Increasing In The Knowledge

Answering honestly, when was the last time that you did an in depth study of the Scriptures? I am not asking when was the last time you read a verse or two. Instead, when was the last time that you dug deep to gain a better understanding of God and His Word. Did you know

Keeping The Faith

It can rightly be said that faithfulness is absolutely essential for the salvation of man. In His letter to the church in Smyrna, Jesus stated, “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten

The Resurrection

The truth of Christianity hinges upon the legitimacy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If Jesus did not come out of the tomb triumphantly, then Christianity would be one of the biggest frauds in the history of mankind.

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,

Wells Without Water

In different parts of the Bible, God is very plain and firm when it comes to the attitudes and behaviors of those that live sinful lifestyles. Often times, along with the descriptions of their transgressions, there is a foretelling of the punishment that awaits those that will not repent. One of those places of Scripture

The Comfort of the LORD

Each person needs encouragement, motivation, and comfort from time to time. That includes Christians. Even though we are blessed tremendously, we are not immune to the effects of the enormous amount of evil and sadness in the world. With that being true, where do we turn when those things rear their heads? While writing one

Another Serving of ‘Let Us’

It was not very long ago that I wrote an article titled “Did You Eat Your ‘Let Us’”. The premise was that the “eating” of “let us” was a play on words. Instead of eating real lettuce, the idea was to introduce some things that a Christian should include in his life. The main texts

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
