This morning wondering what I would delve into next for personal devotional time, the thought occurred to me that people, perhaps now more than any other time in history, are questioning the validity of God's Word. Christians swayed by scientific arguments falsely so-called, (1 Timothy 6:20) O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy … Continue reading Much Learning Hath Made Thee Mad! — Guest Post by Marilynn Dawson
A friend shared an article about the book and movie "Heaven Is for Real". You can read it here: http://www.christiantoday.com/article/heaven.is.for.real.critics.are.pharisees.says.todd.burpo/37192.htm The father says, essentially, that no one can or should question his son's experience.

Our last post stated that throughout the United States, churches are worshiping golden calves. It is much easier to point out what we are doing wrong than what we should be doing. What is true and proper worship? Since this question has been asked and answered repeatedly for nearly 2,000 years, there are many and … Continue reading Brethren We Have Met To Worship By Michael J.

A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children's children; Proverbs 13:22a KJV A simple reading of this verse brings to mind property, real estate, houses, land, and money. Keil and Delitzsch in their commentary point out that the word can also mean “the man who is willing to communicate all good is truly good” … Continue reading Leaving an Inheritance by Michael J.

But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil. Hebrews 5:14 We are all involved in a Spiritual warfare that is not going away just because we do not like it.

Words mean things. "This is a green fence," can be parsed, the adjective "green" and the noun "fence" can be made more precise, but the basic meaning of words is clear. I once had a business trip to plant where everyone spoke French. They found the one man who knew a little English. Between my … Continue reading Basics Of Reality

Their educational efforts are so successful that liberalism has tried a new method of deceiving people. Use the same doctrines, teach the same dogma, … Continue reading Am I a Liberal?
We are to speak the truth in love. At the same time, Jesus began his ministry by knotting together a whip of cords and driving animals out of the temple (John 2). He did the same thing the week before He was crucified. Though the Bible does not say this, I believe that Jesus probably … Continue reading Love Does Not Rejoice in Iniquity
Many people have told me the book of Genesis is an allegory. I am not "educated enough" to understand it's "higher meaning," its true "moral purpose."Luke 16 records Lazarus and "a certain rich man" dying. In the torments of hell, the rich man was able to speak to Abraham. He asked Abraham to send someone … Continue reading “They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.”

Matthew 5:17,18 A jot … Continue reading Is Genesis “Allegorical?”
To anyone who remotely believes in the inspiration of the Bible, who wrote Job is an either/or question. Yes, there were probably multiple authors over a period of time. But the scenes in heaven were either divinely revealed, or they were made up, invented, manufactured. There is no middle ground on this issue. Words mean … Continue reading Job Is a “Litmus Test” for Liberalism.
