No Words Stand Alone

“No man is an island,” says the song, and much the same can be said of any word in any language. ​One of the arguments set forth against the reliability of the King James Bible deals with the issue of the vernacular of the original languages. It is suggested that, since many of the original ...

Paul’s Pattern Of “Longsuffering” In Godliness

1Ti 1:15  This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.  1Ti 1:16  Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter ...

PB&J

Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food. – Job 23:12. I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  When the going gets tough (or not) a peanut butter and jelly sandwich satisfies!  There is nothing flashy, or outlandish about ...

Logos, the Word

John 1:1 – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Christ was with God, and He was God. We know from Joh. 1:14, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us… full of grace and truth.” The Greek word for Word is Logos, ...

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 ...

Telephone Line

He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him. – Proverbs 18:13 I have always been a proponent of apologetics – the defense of the faith.  It is, after all, an important issue.  Knowing your Christian worldview, and the difference between Biblical Christianity, and other “isms” which run ...

Divine Intervention

Does God intervene today? Absolutely. Did God not intervene when He called you by His gospel? Did God not intervene when you were convicted by His Holy Spirit and you chose to embrace His gospel by faith? Did God not intervene when the Spirit indwelt you and baptized you the moment you believed? Did God ...

Faith-FULL!

Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

Rom.12 9] Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. The essential component to godliness for the son is walking after the selfless love of Christ, and Paul’s exhortation to “let love be” consists of the son operating upon a renewed mind, and knowing the selfless love ...

Marriage: On the Rock, or On the Rocks?

Marriage between men and women (there is no other way) is an institution which has for it’s establishment God, Himself.  He created Eve as a helpmeet for Adam, so that he would not be alone. And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an ...

Be Not “Beguiled” With The Enticing Words Of Man

Your Spiritual Life is Like a Racetrack

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” (1 Cor. 9:24) Just imagine your spiritual life is like a racetrack set before you. A straight road as far as the eye can see. And this is the only road you ...

LOVE AND DOCTRINE

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not ...

A Stroke of Grace

Thursday, March 17, 2022 became a day of drastic change for me. I had a stroke in the lower cerebrum of my brain. I was sitting down, having my morning cup o’ joe when it hit! A headache, with waves of sweat, which sent me back to bed. I figured, a little bit of rest, ...
