  4. Is Sincerity Sometimes Enough?2007/06/15
    Denominationalists have long called for union and tolerance of doctrine error, and vain religious practices. The common claim is that as long as one is sincere, he is accepted by God. This is not true. There is a litmus test for acceptance by God, abiding in truth!
  5. Exposing False Teachers2007/06/08
    The apostle Paul describes the work of an evangelist in 2 Timothy 4:2-4 to be, in part, exposing those who teach error. The evangelist must do so readily, and with longsuffering. But, it must be done!

    The third chapter of James' epistle defines divine wisdom, differentiating between it and human wisdom, and establishing the means of obtaining divine wisdom.
  13. Taming the Tongue2007/04/13
    The third chapter of James' epistle establishes both the difficulty, and the importance of bridling the tongue. It is an unruly evil, that left unchecked, can destroy a man.
  14. Slipping on the "EIS"2007/04/05
    Does the text in Acts 2:38 indicate that we are baptized because our sins are forgiven, or in order to receive the forgiveness of sins. Context and a word study indicate that "for the remission of sins" indicates that repentance and baptism are necessary for salvation!

    There is much controversy regarding Holy Spirit baptism among religious people today. What does the New Testament teach concerning Holy Spirit baptism, and the part it plays, if any, in the conversion of man.
  20. Profiting Through Trials2007/02/16

    The first chapter of James has practical wisdom for man. The writer indicates that it is profitable to suffer through trial and tribulation. This is so, though it is not enjoyable. Why? Such tribulation develops patience in the believer.

  23. Catholic Attitudes Toward Authority2007/01/26

    The Catholic church contends that it, as an institution, is the final arbiter and authority for all matters pertaining to the spiritual welfare and condition of man.

  26. It Still Says Wine!2007/01/05

    Social Drinking apologists sometimes point to the wedding feast at Cana (where Jesus turned the water into wine) as justification for social drinking. An examination of the context, as well as the greek word for wine show this argumentation to be without merit.

    A comparison of ancient Babylonian traditions regarding a worldwide flood, and what the scripture teaches in the book of Genesis, gives external evidence regarding the historicity of the actual event.
  34. Saving A Soul From Death2006/11/10

    One way to express love for our brethren, as revealed by James in James 5:19-20, is to turn back one who has fallen in sin to a life of righteousness.
  35. Justification By Faith2006/11/03
    The doctrine of justification by faith is one of the most comforting to the Christian. It is also one of the most misunderstood doctrines in the Bible.

Matthew 10:37,39) it is obvious that God expects for us to be regular and diligent in our attendance to worship services and classes in the local church. We should not be seeking to do the "minimum", rather we should be diligent to do all we can for the Lord.
  52. The Evolutionist's Call For Compromise2006/06/30
    The pendulum has swung, and now many scientists are admitting that the evidence supports the concept of design and a designer.
