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

Joseph’s Life and Lessons, Part 5

Written by

Last time we discussed aspects of Joseph’s life, it took us through Genesis 41:45. We learned that Joseph was raised up out of prison and became the second in command under Pharaoh. I’m sure Joseph never saw this coming when he was first sold into slavery by jealous brothers at the...

We’ll get back to our study in Joseph very soon, but I wanted to highlight something that ties in a bit with our previous article on Ushering in a One World Religion. It’s not a direct tie-in, but more of an indirect tie-in; something that’s been part and parcel of the New Age...

Ushering in a One World Religion?

Written by

I have to say it’s a bit off-putting that so many within Christendom seem so unconcerned about the massive push by many of today’s religious leaders toward a one-world religious system. There are so many who deny what is occurring right in front of our noses. What can you do? The only...

Voiding Logic to Uphold Late Term Abortion

Written by

Unfortunately, because of the “fear” that Trump will push for and SCOTUS will go to bat for him regarding overturning Roe V Wade, individual states have ramped up their game to ensure that even if SCOTUS ends up overturning it, they will have laws in place that will allow them to...

In our last article in this series – Part 2 – we highlighted what happened to Joseph after he had been unmercifully sold to a traveling caravan of Ishmaelites, who took him to Egypt and sold him to a man by the name of Potiphar, who, as it turns out, was an officer under Pharaoh and...

Joseph’s Life and Lessons, Part 2

Written by

Last time, in our series on Joseph, we introduced him, his brothers and how he was so mistreated by them that they at first, wanted to kill him, but settled on simply selling him and telling father Jacob that Joseph had been killed by a beast. Jacob’s understandable reaction to this fake...

On January 1st, I began reading the Bible all over again, starting with Genesis. I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating. The more you read and study His Word, the more your eyes are open to the valuable truths found within His Word. It’s not simply becoming more familiar...

The New Age Reveals Satan’s Intentions, Pt 3

The New Age Reveals Satan’s Intentions, Pt 1

Written by

For the past number of years, I’ve been increasingly aware of the teachings within the New Age movement. The main reason for this is due to the fact that Satan created the “new age” in a very early form in Genesis 10-11. If this is true, then it should be clear that to...

To Boycott or Not to Boycott?

There is a great deal of talk regarding boycotting specific stores or companies today. Many conservatives and Christians believe that they should make their voices heard with their wallets/purses. It is believed that the statement of boycotting is good and a necessary evil to help owners of those...

Voter Fraud Affecting Elections?

You know, life really can come at you fast, as the saying goes. I look back over the past few months and very few things that I wanted to accomplish were accomplished. It reminds me of the verse in James, where he tells us that we need to approach life with the perspective that God is in...

Is It This or That?

Don’t Be Conformed but Be Transformed

I think anyone who is authentically saved comes to understand that living the Christian life is not an easy road. The only “easy” part of becoming or being a Christian is at the very beginning when a person’s eyes are often involuntarily opened to the truth and reality of the need...
