But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

The Best Safeguard Against False Doctrine

Written by
If anyone asks me, “What is the best safeguard against false doctrine?” I answer in one word: “The Bible—the Bible regularly read, regularly prayed over, regularly studied.” We must go back to the old prescription of our Master: “Search the Scriptures”...

Church Leaders Can’t Fear Controversy

Written by
To tell us, as others do, that clergymen ought never to handle controversial subjects, and never to warn their people against erroneous views, is senseless and unreasonable. At this rate, we might neglect much of the New Testament. Surely the dog that does not bark and the sleeping shepherd are the...

Man vs Woman

Don’t Let Them Change YOU

Written by
A just man comes to Sodom hoping to save the city. He pickets. What else can he do? He goes from street to street, from marketplace to marketplace, shouting, “Men and women, repent. What you are doing is wrong. It will kill you; it will destroy you.” They laugh, but he goes on shouting,...

1. Low in the grave He lay—Jesus, my Savior!
Waiting the coming day—Jesus, my Lord!
Chorus:
Up from the grave He arose, 
With a mighty triumph o’er His foes.
He arose a victor from the dark domain,
And He lives forever with His saints to reign.
He arose! He arose! 
Hallelujah!...

“Man of Sorrows!” what a name
For the Son of God, who came
Ruined sinners to reclaim!

In my place condemned He stood—
Sealed my pardon with His blood:
Hallelujah, what a Savior!
Guilty, vile and helpless we,
Spotless Lamb of God...

Forgiveness

Choosing to forgive shows more strength than choosing to hold a grudge. It’s a way of modeling God’s love and imparting to others the same grace that we receive from Him when we make mistakes. Forgiveness is the first step toward healing and reconciliation. … Forgiveness opens...

Liberals and Unity

Liberals, both in the past and today, desire unity, but do so at the expense of doctrinal purity.  They are happy to join hands with any except those who insist on certain essential truths remaining foundational to unity.

The Church and Abuse of Music for Worship

I really wish churches would quit using “radio songs” — songs that are performed for CDs and broadcast and not meant for congregational singing.
A problem is that the congregation has no song book with the music, so we have to try to figure it out while the lyrics are posted. ...
