One of the reasons you are confused about faith is because it has been ruthlessly redefined beyond recognition. Some people in religion have defined it as a power, while secularists have mocked it as believing contrary to proof. Both are … Continue reading
Here is the verse: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (2 Cor. 5:17).
All Christians can be tempted to sin; their history with God can help determine whether they’ll actually follow through with the temptation. For instance, if a person has been under depression off and on for many years, then accepts Jesus … Continue reading
Have you ever thought of accomplishing something, then made a plan to make it happen? God has a plan that is universal in scope and eternal in time, and you and I have a place in it. The Bible, from … Continue reading
Some of us have felt dark clouds over the soul for a long time after committing a great wrong. We feel obligated to make up for the wrong. Sometimes, after we’ve been forgiven, we continue to be stressed or feel … Continue reading
Some people cannot yield themselves to the Lord because they think God may call them to serve in Africa or China or some other inhospitable environment. They may be afraid of losing their comforts or failing the Lord. The good … Continue reading
You might as well ask what reason or the Theory of Relativity feel like. They, and faith, are not feelings at all. The biblical definition of faith means to know something is true. It does not mean to believe in … Continue reading
The kingdom of God is God’s plan of the ages fulfilled. It is mankind’s very hope and desire for order and peace realized – which our politics and governments have never been able to accomplish. It is the separation of … Continue reading
First, let’s cover several ideas people may have regarding faith and point out their weaknesses. “To walk in faith means to trust in your heart.” The Bible never tells us to trust in our heart; it says the opposite. We … Continue reading
Many think that verses referring to harsh judgment were meant to be applied to the unsaved. But how did Paul see the judgment? As an incentive to get ready lest one be punished! “Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or … Continue reading
Some of my friends already know I’m going to talk about the Lord. In other gatherings, I already know the conversation will turn to American Idol, Survivor, and Farmville, with very little variation in what they’ll talk about. But that’s … Continue reading
The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is central to the Christian message. Without it, Christianity would be just another religion. What makes the case so compelling for belief? Here are several ideas to consider. God knew how hard … Continue reading
If you were sick with a fever, asking this question is like asking, “Why should I go to a hospital when it’s full of sick people?” If you were sick and wanted to get better, you belong in a hospital. … Continue reading
Surprisingly, Christianity is the most liberty-loving religion on earth: “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any” (1 Corinthians … Continue reading
Wouldn’t more people be persuaded to believe if Christianity and the gospel were presented more logically?
Frankly, few people are motivated to make decisions based on logic alone. For instance, a newcomer to a company may notice that all the key players are dressed in black, so the newcomer may dress in black to fit in. … Continue reading
German blood runs in my veins. I have read about Hitler and his evils with the Holocaust. What happened with the extermination of the Jews, handicapped, homosexuals, and foreigners ought never to have happened. We learn from this WWII history … Continue reading
God tells Christians to remove the beam from their own eyes so they can judge others with better understanding: “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own … Continue reading
I am a pen pal to prison inmates. Of the Christian pen pals I have, many of them received Christ while in prison. They ignored God before prison; now they have much time to learn of him. I’ve received letter … Continue reading
The phrase comes from the Bible. First Timothy 6:10 tells us, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with … Continue reading
