Speak to Us What Is Right?

I guess that it is part of human nature for us to not want to hear that we do is wrong. I know from experience that when I was a child, I did not like to hear my mother telling me what I could and could not do. It did not get any better when […]

Does the Social Gospel Really Work?

I suppose people can really get tricked into believing that the social gospel approach in a church really works. When one surveys the attendance garnered by all the free meals, hayrides, retreats, gymnasiums, counseling centers, daycares, birthday parties and anniversary parties, one would naturally conclude that the social gospel approach is the sure-fire method for […]

Are You Missing Bible Class?

Did you drift away from attending Bible classes when COVID came along? We’re all creatures of habit, good or bad. Form good habits and good things can happen — and vice versa (Galatians 6:7-9). Has it become a habit for you to come to worship on Sunday morning but leave when Bible study starts? Do […]

Are There More Books of the Bible?

The question of the authenticity of the Bible is challenged by the existence of other books that seem to have a flavor for Holy writ. There are the apocryphal books written during the years separated by the Old and New Testament. Some of the books include the books of Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Susanna, and others. […]

“Sir, I Perceive That Thou Art a Prophet”

These words were those of a Samaritan woman whom Jesus engaged in conversation near Sychar, a city of Samaria. The woman was astonished at Jesus’ request for water because she was a woman and Jesus, a Jew, had spoken to her, a Samaritan. Jesus and His disciples were passing through Samaria, returning to Galilee after […]

What Calvinism Does

Calvinism’s view of salvation, i.e. that salvation is completely and totally in the hands of God and has nothing to do with man, has serious implications. Anyone with a cursory knowledge of God and His revelation will recognize the absurdity of the following points: First, it implies that man has no free will whatsoever and […]

The Traditions of Men

The traditions of men cause people to turn away from the word of God. There are a number of passages which forbid us from adding to or taking away the Bible (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:6; Galatians 1:6-9; Revelation 22:18-19). Several other passages tell us to “turn not from it to the right hand or to […]

Is The Death Penalty Wrong?

The death penalty is a very controversial issue in our society. Every time there is an execution, we can expect the typical arguments to be made by those on both sides of this issue. People condemn the action by claiming that it violates the “Golden Rule,” fails to show true love, opposes the true spirit […]

Scriptural Fellowship

I find it very interesting that we have preached against the “social gospel” for many decades, but we are increasingly seeing non-institutional churches announcing “events” which are planned and promoted by churches and include appeals for young people to join in the food and entertainment provided by individuals. Many have even adopted the popular definition […]

“The Sons of the Prophets”

One of the intriguing references in the Old Testament are references to the “sons of the prophets.” This group emerged in the beginnings of the Israelite monarchy (cp. 1 Kings 20:35). They are mentioned ten times in the scriptures, and all references are in Kings. “Sons” is used in the sense of “members of a […]
