For Convenience’s Sake

For Convenience’s Sake

If something saves us time or makes life easier, we generally love doing it. “Convenience” means “something which makes for one’s comfort or for saving work.” There is certainly nothing wrong with modern conveniences. It is natural for us to want to make tasks easier....

Are Denominations Agreeable to God?

Are Denominations Agreeable to God?

The word “denomination” implies division. Currently, there are over 1,500 divisions in the American Protestant religious landscape. Someone may initially think that choice is good, and in a lot of ways, it is, but is a division in the purpose of God? Jesus prayed,...

The Tower of Babel

The Tower of Babel

Genesis 11:1-4 says, “And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech … And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly … And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us...

Another Failed Prophecy

Another Failed Prophecy

On October 21, 2011, Harold Camping had predicted that the “Rapture” would occur. This is the same man who predicted doom on May 21st of the same year, but we are still here. The day after his initial prediction (May 22), an obviously shocked Camping emerged from his...

Karma

Karma

I have seen “karma” referenced numerous times on Facebook, so I thought it would be good to see what the Bible says about the subject. “Karma” is a concept in Hinduism and Buddhism that says the sum of a person’s actions in this and previous states of existence are...

Outbursts of Wrath

Outbursts of Wrath

“Wrath” is defined as “passion (as if breathing hard).” Thayer adds that it means “the rage with which the man pants and swells.” Vine offers that it is a more agitated condition of the feelings, an outburst of wrath from inward indignation — it quickly blazes up and...

Daniel’s Seventy Weeks #3

Daniel’s Seventy Weeks #3

It has been shown that Daniel’s seventy weeks divided into seven weeks, sixty-two weeks, and one week could not have literally been 490 years (a “year for a day” which would equal 70 x 7 or 490). This would have covered the time of the beginning of the first seven...

The Perverted Gospel

The Perverted Gospel

Paul wrote to the Galatians to try to keep them faithful to the gospel. He opened with some harsh words: “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble...

Dramas, Plays, and Skits

Dramas, Plays, and Skits

A trend that I have noticed over the past several years is more emphasis being put on dramas, plays, and skits than on learning lessons from the Bible in Vacation Bible Schools. Denominations have incorporated these techniques for decades, along with institutional...

The Gospels and Matthew 19:9

The Gospels and Matthew 19:9

During my time of preaching, I have encountered Christians teaching that the gospels do not apply as part of the New Covenant. Said another way, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are a part of the Old Covenant which was nailed to the cross when Jesus died (Ephesians...

Personal Responsibility

Personal Responsibility

Christians have a serious responsibility to ensure that we only do what God wants. Knowing that we will be judged, we had better make sure that we are doing all of the Lord’s will (Romans 14:12). We would do well if all children of God had the same kind of attitude...

Heaven in the Home

Heaven in the Home

God’s first institution was marriage. Genesis 2:24 says, “For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.” God has always intended that the marriage bond would produce love and companionship...

Daniel’s Seventy Weeks #2

Daniel’s Seventy Weeks #2

Daniel saw the time was near for the fulfillment of two prophecies by two different prophets: the exiled remnant of Judah would be allowed to return home in 70 years (Jer. 25:11), and the decree which permitted their return would be from Cyrus, foretold by Isaiah 150...

Ten Basics Every Creationist Must Know

Ten Basics Every Creationist Must Know

Christian who stands on the authority of God’s word should be ready to show how the Bible unlocks our understanding of the world. Yet certain questions are still difficult to answer. Thankfully, when you accept the plain teaching of scripture, the basic answers are...

Whose Fault Is It?

Whose Fault Is It?

A preacher and an atheistic barber were once walking through the city slums. The barber said, “This is why I cannot believe in a God of love. If God was as kind as you say, He would not permit all this poverty, disease and squalor. He would not allow these poor bums...

The Ancient Paths

The Ancient Paths

“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is a good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said We will not walk therein.” Jeremiah 6:16 Jeremiah called upon the children of Israel to examine...

In All Its Forms

In All Its Forms

I’ve noticed on Facebook that several Christians have mentioned their participation in raffles, tournaments, etc. Gambling takes many forms: card games, dice, betting or pools, sweepstakes, and lottery tickets, slot machines, bingo (for money or prizes), and raffle...

The Assault on Creation

The Assault on Creation

Ken Ham, in doing research for a book on compromising beliefs in Genesis, asked the question of professors in “Christian” or denominational colleges in America: “Would you consider yourself young earth or old earth Christian?” In the religion departments of schools...

Are You Ready for the End of the World?

Are You Ready for the End of the World?

False prophet Harold Camping last predicted the end of the world in 1994. Camping then predicted that it would take place on May 21, 2011, at exactly 6 p.m. After 70 years of studying the Bible, he claims to have developed a system that uses mathematics to determine...

Bear the Yoke in Youth

Bear the Yoke in Youth

As the young ox has to be brought under the yoke, and as the young horse has to be accustomed to the bridle and bit, so the young person must learn the practical and valuable lessons of submission and endurance. Lamentations 3:27  says, “It is good for a man to...

Daniel’s Seventy Weeks #1

Daniel’s Seventy Weeks #1

Daniel’s vision of seventy weeks which dealt with the fate of his nation is recorded first in Daniel 9:24-27. The vision came as the result of Daniel’s fervent prayer when he recognized the time was near for the fulfillment of the prophecy of Jeremiah. That prophet...

“Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs”

“Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs”

“Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.” Ephesians 5:19 God, in His infinite wisdom, provided the scriptures for mankind written in a language perfectly suited for the message of redemption....

It’s Going to Be Prom Time Soon

Every Spring, teenagers all over the country will be thinking about prom. It used to be that prom was only for 18-year-old Seniors in high school, but for several years, proms have made their way into the middle grades. When one becomes a Christian, everything takes...
