Walking in the Steps of Faithful Abraham

For those of you who were here last week, you will remember we covered the story of Abraham. In the Bible, Abraham is referred to as an example of faith, and you find that Abraham believed God and his belief translated into action. He did something. When God asked him to do something, he didn’t say, “Well, I believe,” and didn’t do anything. Whatever God asked him to do, he did it. There are a number of men in the Bible that God inspired the writers of scripture to point…

Am I Just A Christian

An article appeared several months ago in Truth Magazine entitled “Is It Possible To Be Just A Christian?”  I want to answer that question,  but from a different standpoint.  The author brings out the point that people of the world consider themselves and others as Christians because the affiliate themselves with a particular religious organization other than the church that we read about in the New Testament.  A well written article by brother Heath Rogers dismissing that claim by correctly stating,  “the preaching of the apostles did not produce Catholics, …

Are Earthquakes Signs of the End Times?

Has an unusual increase in the frequency of big earthquakes afflicted civilizations in the last decades of the twentieth century?

Moreover, no clear scriptural warrant exists for the notion that earthquakes will increase in frequency just before the tribulation period and the…

Bible True. Is the Bible True? What can be proved?

Bible True: At the beginning of this book, I laid out some guiding questions that I have tried to follow carefully and objectively throughout this investigation: In light of the conflicting claims and the often equivocal evidence of modern scholarship, what can be known about the Bible? What can be proved? What is reasonable for modern readers to believe about its authority, its authenticity, and its reliability as a historical witness? In subsequent pages I inquired into the Bible’s genre and the credibility of its sources, examined archaeological evidence and…

How Can I be Saved by Jesus Christ?

How can Jesus Christ save me? What do we mean by this statement?Saved from what? The answer is, Death. It is an accepted fact that everyone eventually dies.

Is Wealth a Blessing or a Curse?

There is the aspect of love for persons who are not attractive or…

The New Testament Gift of Prophecy

It is still valid and useful for the church today. This is the clear implication of 1 Corinthians 13:8-12 and Acts 2:17-18.It is a Spirit-prompted, Spirit-sustained, utterance that is rooted in a true revelation (1 Corinthians 14:30), but is fallible because the prophet’s perception of the revelation, and thinking about the revelation, and report of the revelation are all fallible. It is thus similar to the gift of teaching which is Spirit-prompted, Spirit sustained, rooted in an infallible revelation (the Bible), and yet is fallible but very useful to the…

Marriage – God’s Gift

Marriage was God’s gift to a perfect world. He had said, ‘It is not good that the man should be alone’, even when that man was without sin and living in holy communion with God.

God said further: ‘I will make him an help meet for him’ (Gen. 2:18) – a help suitable for him. After a brief description of how Eve was formed, we are told:…
