God knows the struggles Christians have in this sinful world, and so He's given us the Scriptures to read so we can know Him and His laws and have the desire and the ability through His Spirit in us to obey Him. If we love Jesus, then we'll study our Bibles so we can follow … Continue reading How to Avoid Sin
As we continue to celebrate Christmas throughout the weekend, let's not forget why we celebrate. God loved His children so much that when they were separated from Him because of sin, God Himself determined to leave His throne in Heaven to become a man and live amongst us. Jesus came willingly so that He could … Continue reading A Glimpse of Truth
When we repent of our sins and receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we can feel His peace and have the joy in our hearts to know how great life is. Yes, we will still have trials and tribulations because Jesus said we would, but He overcame the world and with His Spirit in … Continue reading What Washes Away our Sin?
We often put our trust in people and accept their professional prognosis as the only answer to our issues. As believers in Christ, though, we need to trust God more and people less. God’s Word is true and He has proved His faithfulness to those who love Him and trust Him. It’s time to put … Continue reading God is our Only Hope
Most people don’t accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior because they don’t believe they need one. In this world of legal rights and free speech, self-reliance has replaced Godly humility and dependency on Him. People are blinded by spiritual deception and their own desires and can’t see the reality of life given by our … Continue reading Who Needs a Savior?
There was a time when Christians kept to themselves, followed Jesus and were still able to live in a society with respect. Many would sit on the fence, not sure what to believe because their minds were still partial to the things and ways of this world. However, as the days roll faster towards the … Continue reading The Days of Fence Sitting R Over!
Recently, an interview with the supposedly Christian pastor, Carl Lentz from the NY Hillsong Church was released. He gained a lot of attention when he refused to call sin what it is—sin. He prefers to preach a message that pleases his congregation and keeps them coming back. But this world doesn’t need happy people that … Continue reading Bring Down the Fire!
Over the years, too many Christians have turned a blind eye to the sin around them. Their attitude was that as long as they didn't participate, then it didn't bother them. And because of that, sin was able to spread without resistance. We are living in a time when it is no longer acceptable to … Continue reading Silence is No Longer Golden
It had been a very long 120 years for Noah and his family as they spent every waking minute building the massive ark according to God's instructions. There had been no sign of flood rains that warranted a boat to escape on and the people laughed him to scorn. But Noah didn't get upset because … Continue reading When the Snail Reached the Ark
Some of the props we have learned to depend on in life are signs. These are signals that prepare us for something ahead and we use them for every facet of life including sports, business and economic change, social influence and of course, the weather. But we don't read the signs that are most crucial to us. We are … Continue reading The Signs of the Times
Recently, a family friend, who's always claimed to be a Christian, asked me why some of his family didn't accept his "male" spouse as part of the family. It was a moment of deliberation for me. Do I tell him that he's actually sinning against God by engaging in this lifestyle? Or do I candy coat the … Continue reading The Cost of Telling the Truth
We read in the Old Testament that after Moses led the people out of Egypt, they began to engage in terrible acts of sin including idolatry, immorality, and murder. So, God gave Moses some laws known as the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20) to be used as a benchmark to govern the people so they would … Continue reading Endorsing Sin Brings Judgment
Many of today’s Christians have a very worldly point of view regarding certain kinds of sin. It’s a view that is deceiving thousands of people every day because the truth is, it doesn’t matter what we think or what we deem should be acceptable in the eyes of the Lord; it’s about what God has … Continue reading Don’t be Deceived!
Many religions will have us believe that we can “earn” God’s forgiveness through works - give financial aid, support those who come to us for help, and pray for those in need. And these good deeds for this purpose should stay with that religion because it is NOT a prerequisite from the Lord for forgiveness, … Continue reading Can We Earn God’s Forgiveness?
God is love and everything God does is initiated in love and because of love. He created us because He wanted to have a family and He gave us everything to keep us healthy, happy and content. This is the beginning of the Love of God. God walked in the Garden of Eden with Adam … Continue reading The Beginning of Love
