The crown of victory, part two

Last week we spoke of the "Crown of Victory'. The gospel message is the "key" to man's salvation. When Jesus told Peter He would give to him the "keys" to the kingdom of heaven. On the day of Pentecost, Peter used the keys; he preached the gospel of Christ.

On reading the Bible

Christians make some audacious claims. We say that it is possible for a human being to know God in a personal way. We claim that Jesus was raised from the dead. We claim that there is more to life than we can see, that there is life after death.

Ask for forgiveness

Some people think that because they have lived such a wild or evil life in their past that God will never be able to forgive them. They think because they have chosen a certain lifestyle that God may be too offended. The sad thing about all this is that we Christians seem to insinuate this misconception when we refer to certain sins or sinners. Salvation was available to persons such as Adolf Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Charles Manson, Timothy McVay, and Jeffrey Dahmer. No matter who you could think of and no matter what their sin was, complete forgiveness is ...

Ways Satan works

Man's greatest enemy is Satan. His every goal is wicked and evil, yet he makes his product look so attractive. If he could only be seen as he is described by Peter, "as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8). Then maybe people would take Peter's advice as is found in the same verse, "Be sober, be vigilant;" Many are anything but sober and vigilant when it comes to understanding Satan and his work.

Remember the meaning of Easter, 'Jesus is alive'

It is the day before Easter. Think what it must have been like almost 2000 years ago on that day – before the first Easter.

The will, seen in Father and Son

Jesus freely chose to die. No wonder that a current internet site asks rhetorically if He were not complicit in His own death?

There is a standard in religion (part 2)

Last week we saw the need for a standard to be followed in religion. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works (II Tim. 3:16,17). Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (II Peter 1:20,21).

What is truth?

In the book of John before Jesus was crucified he had been sent to Pilate, the Roman governor. This Pilate had the responsibility of either releasing Jesus or handing him over to be crucified. Jesus told Pilate that he had came into the world to testify to the truth and that everyone on the side of truth listens to him. At this Pilate asked this aged old question, "What is truth?"

No to alcohol on Sundays, and every day in between

There has been a lot of debate recently concerning the topic of alcohol, especially the change of the law regarding the selling of it on Sunday in restaurants. I do not see a difference between serving it on Sunday verses on Monday, Tuesday etc.

Sin can be overcome by following God's word

The Bible plainly states that all men have sinned (Romans 3:23). Sin, though not inherited, has been a plague of each generation of mankind. Each individual sins and is responsible for their sins.

Use His way to avoid devil's tricks

This week has been beautiful, and I think spring is finally here to stay. We have been fooled before with a cold front sneaking its way back in. Well, speaking of being fooled, Tuesday was April Fool's Day where many a folk were hoaxed or tricked. Most of this was all done in fun and brought much-needed laughter.

Stone movers wanted by God

"Jesus said, 'Take ye away the stone.' Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, 'Lord, by this time he stinketh, for he hath been dead four days.' Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, 'Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.' And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth.' And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus ...

Come now, let us reason together: Part 2

Last week, we looked at Isaiah 1:18 and saw that God was willing to give his people an opportunity to come to their senses and turn back to him. Those people failed to heed God's warnings. Surely, man can learn from their mistakes (Romans 15:4).
