Was prophesied in the Old Testament. Was delivered by Jesus Christ. Was preached by the Apostles. Brought Jesus Christ down to mankind. Caused Jesus Christ to die on the cross. Allowed Jesus Christ to rise from the grave. Is only found in the Bible. Is only commanded by God. Is the only hope of the world.
God’s rules don’t have exceptions… OBEY GRAVITY IT’S THE LAW God is perfect; therefore His laws, His rules, and His regulations are perfect — no exceptions. This is one of the most important concepts in real Bible-believing Christianity. If you can accept this concept, if you can understand this concept, and if you can apply this concept, you will save yourself from a lot of man-made religious grief. Consider these rules… All have sinned and fall short of the glory of Continue reading
There are 2 character traits that are very important for service to the Lord: humility and submission. Humility about yourself towards others and towards God. Submission first to God and then to each other. Without these character traits, the Apostle Paul said you will be just like a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. All noise. No benefit. If you consider these opposite character traits, it is obvious why pride and arrogance cannot serve the Lord. Is arrogant pride motivating you to Continue reading
Post by Celebrate Recovery Granbury TX. This video expresses a very common condition of many Christians. Here are some of the Biblical basis for the thoughts that are expressed… We understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:15) Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5) Everyone who loves has been born from God and knows God (1 John 4:7) This is love: … that he loved us and sent Continue reading
In a world where more and more people claim to believe in a supreme being, in a world where more and more religions are growing without bounds, it seems like everyday the news is filled with hate and violence. Why? Because there are many false gods and many false religions. But, only one man said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)” The life that man Jesus Continue reading
The Bible doesn’t use gentle euphemisms like “procrastination” it gets right to the nitty-gritty reality with the real name “laziness.” The Bible doesn’t dance around with feel-good psycho-babble, it warns of the dangers… How long will you lie there, you sluggard? When will you get up from your sleep? … and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man. (Proverbs 6:9-11) As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so are sluggards Continue reading
The Bible describes 2 different kinds of circumcisions. The first is the physical circumcision as a visible sign of the Old Testament covenant between God and Abraham (and all of Abraham’s descendants), which is not required for salvation. The second is a spiritual circumcision, which was preached, prophesied, and practiced in the Hebrew scriptures. Spiritual circumcision is required for salvation. If you are surprised or offended, I hope you will be like the noble Berean’s, who “received the word with all readiness of Continue reading
The “Romans Road” is a simple way of presenting the gospel using verses from Romans. This is a very good way to start someone studying the Bible. The book of Romans was written by the Apostle Paul during his 3rd missionary journey about 23 years after the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It contains the most complete description of the fundamentals and foundations of Christianity: sinful nature of all men in the eyes of God, justification by faith Continue reading
The title of this post is an oxymoron (a figure of speech in which apparently contradictory terms appear in conjunction) on purpose. All of the following impossible things would have to happen for you to lose your salvation. None of these things can happen. Therefore, you can be confident your salvation is secure.
