Just My Imagination?

And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Genesis 6:5) Before I go any further, I just want to pass along this disclaimer: This article is not about the “Nephilim.” I repeat: This is not about ...

Where Two Or Three Are Gathered…

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. (Matthew 18:20) One of the most abused Scriptures, out of many, is Matthew 18:20.  This verse is used so often as a verse that proves that the Holy Spirit is present “when two or three are ...

Faith-FULL!

Just My Imagination?

Maybe it’s just my imagination? But, it seems there is much more backbiting, and bickering, now happening between like minded Believers. Well, let me take that opening statement back.  It’s not my imagination.  It is fact!  There is, after all, nothing new under the sun. You see; there is something inherent in every single person ...

The Reliability of Scripture

Everyone has their own opinions about everything under the sun, including politics and religion. Dare I say that these are still the most disagreed upon subjects ever!  The main thing that sparks so much of the disagreement is inaccurate information. Our political world is adrift in opinion, rather than set laws. The same can be ...

Saying No to Militancy

Mankind’s Only Hope

Eph. 2:4-5 – But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) One thing that is clear in God’s word is that mankind’s only hope is the grace of God.  Strip ...

1 Timothy 4:6 – If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
