Why The Spirit?

Why The Spirit?

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God” (Rom 8:14).

What is the purpose of God sending the Holy Spirit to live within believers? Firstly, the Spirit gives us gifts, leads us, and empowers us for service but a vital activity of the Spirit, that is often overlooked, is the work He does within us to empower us to overcome sin. Sin is THE issue between man and God.…

Christians And Christmas

Christians And Christmas

“The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it" (1 Cor. 10:26).

It is often said that Christians should avoid Christmas and Easter because they have historical connections to pagan rituals. However, because 1 Cor. 8-10 tell us that it is OK to eat the meat that pagans have sacrificed to demons, it naturally follows that whatever the pagans have done in any other ritual should not…

No Other Way

 No Other Way

“I am the way and the truth and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through me”.

(John 14:6)



There are many religions in the world but Christianity has two very great differences which set it far above the rest.

  • Firstly, in all other religions man is reaching UP to heaven trying to find a way to please God whereas Christianity tells us that God's Son, Jesus, came DOWN…

Creation and Evolution

Creation and Evolution

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1:1).

Despite the clear evidence against Evolution, it dominates the classroom and society and has had a devastating effect on belief in the Bible. For many, faith in Evolution replaces the need for faith in God and this suits their itching ears as they feel free to make their own rules. Because there is…

Is The Bible To Be Taken Literally?

Is The Bible To Be Taken Literally?

“Thy word is true from the beginning”.

(Psa. 119:160 KJV)

Is the Bible to be taken literally? That is, do we take the text at face value whenever it's plain meaning makes sense? We all know that it makes no sense to believe that Jesus is a gate or a lion; these are figures of speech and, like parables, we interpret them spiritually rather than literally. By…

Is God's Love Unconditional?

Is God's Love Unconditional?

“But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD's love

is with those who fear him”. (Psa. 103:17)

It is often said that God's love for believers is unconditional, meaning that He will love us and take us to heaven no…

Sanctification

Sanctification

“It is God's will the you should be sanctified”. 1 Thess. 4:3

When we repent of our sins and put our trust in Jesus, we are said to be justified. That is, our sins are totally forgiven and we are righteous in God's eyes. A good definition of justified is “just-as-if-I'd-never-done-it”.…

Bullying

Bullying

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility

consider others better than yourselves.” (Phil. 2:3)

There are those within the church who love to be first, causing serious problems just like Diotrephes in 3 John 1:9-11. They bully weaker Christians with their 'superior knowledge' and overbearing attitude resulting in some leaving the congregation…

God's Precious Promises

God's Precious Promises

“Does He promise and not fulfill?” (Num. 23:19)

With all the turmoil that surrounds us, it is easy to become worried and disheartened. Christianity is being attacked and mocked in all areas of our life. Evil is called good, apostasy is everywhere and many are being martyred for their…

Are Our Future Sins Forgiven?

Are Our Future Sins Forgiven?

What did Jesus mean when He said, “It is finished”?

(John 19:30).

In John 19:29-30, after He had a drink of sour wine, Jesus said, “It is finished,” and this is thought by many to mean that a Christian's past, present and…

Is Matt. 24 Only For The Jews?

Is Matt. 24 Only For The Jews?

Jesus said, “Watch out that no one deceives you.” (Matt. 24:4)

Many Christians believe that Jesus is going to return twice. They say that the first time is in 1 Thess. 4-5 when He comes secretly to take all Christians to heaven before the Great Tribulation and the…

God's Wrath In The Day Of The Lord

a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger.”

Obedience

Is obedience optional or necessary for salvation?

Is obedience necessary for salvation or is it an option that we can take or leave? What exactly is required of us to be eternally saved? Some say that we don't need to be obedient but only need to believe, just know, that Jesus died for us because John 3:16 simply says that if you believe you will be saved. Let's…

Doubt, The Faith Killer

Doubt, The Faith Killer

“Lord help my unbelief.” (Mark 9:24)



Surely the greatest desire of anyone seeking a closer walk with the Lord is to have less doubt and a stronger faith. How often I shake my head for being so slow to trust the Lord despite the many clear promises He has given us. God…

Peter The Fisherman

A look at Peter's character.

Peter is often spoken of in disrespectful terms as though he was foolishly outspoken or always putting his foot in his mouth. I even heard a sermon in which he was called a fool for getting out of the boat to walk on the water. However, I think Peter showed a lot of courage and faith and simply wore his heart…

The Trinity

The Trinity

A short discussion proving the Trinity.

Many books have been written on the Trinity but I don't think anyone has ever honestly claimed to fully understand it. Our limited minds can never understand our infinite God any more than a computer can understand its manufacturer. The purpose…

God's Love

God's Love

"God is love." (1 John 4:16)



As we look at the evil in this sin-sick world it is easy to see why non-believers say that God cannot be a God of love. It's hard to find words to describe how low mankind has sunk and, despite all the empty talk, things are only going to get worse until Jesus…
