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

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

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

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

Truth or Comfort Zone

my wayMuch of “Christianity” today has digressed from a commitment to follow Christ to an “everything goes” attitude that gives false spiritual security. It’s a “new age religion” that says we can do our own thing and know that God loves and accepts each one of us just as we are now.  It’s no wonder that this deception is growing so rapidly!

The Tragedy of the Missing Parachute

man falling from planeSo often in life people take things for granted. Some assume that their way is the right way and they aren’t willing to change and yet expect good results. Others know that they should act on certain issues now but they either, render a callous attitude and put it off until later, or do nothing and just assume that things will work out in the end. Unfortunately, like the lonely pilot who had engine trouble, his assumption of being saved didn’t work when he faced the tragedy of the missing parachute. Continue reading

Walking a Thin Line

 

 

85483828The earth is being filled with “Christians” as the day of Christ’s return draws near. Some of these people are genuine, born-again believers, but most of them don’t even know God. They are captivated by a doctrine that speaks of universal love and heavenly blessings. The gospel they learn from says they were all saved at the cross and all of their sins were automatically forgiven, so there’s no need for repentance. They think they are saved, but they are missing the salvation of Jesus because they are walking a thin line that doesn’t stem from the cross. Continue reading
