Success of a Loser

motive Charles SpurgeonMany people feel that they don’t need God intervening in their lives because they have it all under control. They are educated, have an amazing career and a great social life, and they credit their “success” to their own initiatives and labor. However, their success should really be labelled: the Success of a Loser. Continue reading

Desires of the Heart

Riches1We all know the Scripture in Psalm 37:4 that says, “Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart.” Many so-called Christian doctrines have stemmed from this Scripture with the interpretation that God wants us to have all the “material possessions” that make us happy. And the truth is, Continue reading

Is There More to God Than Love?

The new age “Christianity” says that God is all about love, that He doesn’t hate anyone or anything and that when Jesus died on the cross we were all saved at that time.  This is a lie! The Bible clearly states that we need to repent to receive salvation AND that there are seven things  God hates. But we need to read the Bible to find out what they are. Continue reading

What Good is the Bible?

lamp-unto-my-feetOften when Christians try to convert non-believers, they quote verses of Scripture hoping to prove that God is real and alive today. But sadly, to someone who doesn’t know God and who has never read the Bible and who attributes the sorrows and tribulations of this world to an uncaring Creator, the Bible has no value. So what good is the Bible if we can’t use it to witness to people? Continue reading

Watch Your Mouth!

Unwholesome talkWe study the Bible and learn Scriptures and we attend church and join in the praise with the rest of the congregation. As time goes on we begin to feel as if we have transformed into a Christian. We made it! We feel good about ourself because we have absorbed so much and have come so far in our walk with God. But if we want to know just how much we actually believe Continue reading

Yay Me!

all-about-godWe read in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” But too often we interpret this to mean, “God is giving me the strength to be all I can be.” We’re encouraged to make our choices and then ask God to bless us and give us the strength and ability to be the very best at what we’ve chosen. But it’s not about God exalting us to glory; Continue reading

God says “Keep the Peace”

rev-6-4This world is corrupt with sin and sickness and it’s bringing fear upon people everywhere. The Ten Commandments are being replaced with “rights” and with “privilege” to those with money and power, making God’s law of no effect. The time we’re living in is bringing sorrows and hardships and now more than ever before, we need to obey God and keep the peace. Continue reading

What is the Reward of my Faith?

reward-of-faithThe subject of faith is a very controversial one in the religious realm and few truly understand what faith is, why we need it and how our lives are blessed because of it. We all know the scripture at Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” But do we really understand what the reward of faith is? Continue reading

Yes, God Hates Some Things!

god-hatesThe impression of God in this new age is that His only character is love. He loves everyone, accepts everything and has made a home in Heaven for all of us. We’re led to believe that if we are a real Christian then we, too, will love everyone and accept everyone as equally loved by God; after all, God is our Heavenly Father and we are all His creation. We’re told that the real “god” doesn’t’ hate Continue reading

Christianity is not about ME!

all-about-godThe best decision anyone will make in their lifetime is to receive the salvation of Christ. Unfortunately, many people think that now, with Jesus on their side to ward off the evils of this world, they can be all they want to be and have all they desire. But they have it all backwards. Christianity is not about “me”! Continue reading

Who are the Children of God?

we-are-the-worldThere’s an attitude spreading across the globe today that wants us to put our differences aside and live as one big multi-cultural family under God. It says that regardless of what we call Him, we are all God’s children. Well, God does love everyone, but we are not all His children. Continue reading
