5 ways to be an example to all believers

There’s a beautiful song written by Carrie E. Breck over 100 years ago which perfectly embodies this concept… I want my life to tell for Jesus! I want my life to tell for Jesus, That everywhere I go, Men may His goodness know, I want my life to tell for Jesus! (Timeless Truths online library) The Apostle John tells us the Holy Spirit was sent to “convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment Continue reading

I am glad to boast about my weaknesses

Sometimes in story-telling and in learning, it’s best to start at the end and then work backwards to see how we got to where we are. Let’s start with the Apostle Paul’s boasting… Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. Continue reading

What is the golden rule?

Jesus summed it up in one thought—probably the most important rule in the world: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” You want the approval of those with whom you come in contact. You want recognition of your true worth. You want a feeling that you are important in your little world. You don’t want to listen to cheap, insincere flattery, but you do crave sincere appreciation. You want your friends and associates to be, as Continue reading

What about “closed” or “separatist” fundamentalism?

Throughout history, there have been many different groups of Christians, coming from different backgrounds, operating in different environments, and struggling with different problems. About 100 years ago, many groups were involved in a struggle against Modernism, which was rejecting: (1) the inerrancy of the Bible; (2) the virgin birth of Jesus Christ; (3) Christ’s atonement for sin; (4) Jesus’ resurrection from the dead; and (5) the millennial return of Christ; and replacing it with so-called science, psychiatry, and self-worship. But many also Continue reading

What about earthquakes?

We have recently experienced a period that has had one of the highest rates of great earthquakes ever recorded. Does this mean that the end times are near, or even starting now? He replied, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and saying, ‘The time has come!’ But don’t believe them. And when you hear of wars and insurrections, don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place first, but the end won’t Continue reading

Mankind divides and conquers! God not impressed.

The struggle of mankind’s plans versus God’s plans has affected history for thousands of years and it is affecting us today. The church is God’s creation and workmanship. It is eternal in nature and too big to become the exclusive province of one group of partisans. Why not be big and wise enough to see this? Rehoboam and Jeroboam divided the Kingdom of Israel. The division has lasted about 3,000 years. But, God is not impressed! It hasn’t changed his plans. Continue reading

The symptoms and diagnosis of the sins of Sodom

The sin of Sodom was so great that God heard the outcry and the LORD came down to intercede… So Abram settled in the land of Canaan, and Lot moved his tents to a place near Sodom and settled among the cities of the plain. But the people of this area were extremely wicked and constantly sinned against the LORD.

The shocking war between the flesh and the spirit

What is the battle between the flesh and the spirit described in Galatians? The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. (Galatians 5:17) Do you think this means living the pious life of a religious zealot versus the wild Continue reading

Scientists just proved the Noahic flood is scientifically possible

After decades of theorizing and searching, scientists are reporting that they’ve finally found a massive reservoir of water in the Earth’s mantle — a reservoir so vast that could fill the Earth’s oceans three times over. Once again, the Bible was way ahead of them scientifically, even though no one understood the concept… 12 “I, Wisdom, live together with good judgment. I know where to discover knowledge and discernment. 28 I was there when he set the clouds above, when Continue reading
