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

Lack of zeal?

Written by

If you lack zeal for the lost, it may be that you have never seen that your own sin makes you worthy of death and damnation. We have been justly hung over the valley of the shadow of death, with no hope outside of the mercy of God. This is why it is so beneficial to go through the Ten Commandments....

“May God wake up a slumbering church!”

Written by

“People talk about our being earnest and fanatical—about our being on fire. Would to God the church were on fire! This world would soon shake to its foundation. May God wake up a slumbering church! What we want you to do is not to shout ‘amen’ and clap your hands. The...

“A shadow of the things to come…”

Written by

“Allowing forty years to Moses, seventeen to Joshua, two hundred ninety-nine to the Judges, forty to Eli, forty to Samuel and Saul, forty to David, and four to Solomon before he began the work, we have just the sum of four hundred and eighty. So long it was before that holy house was built,...

“Can sacrifices take away sin?”

Written by

To skeptics, Numbers  15:24-28 seem to say that sacrifices can, in at least some cases, take away sin, which contradicts Heb. 10:11: “sacrifices…can never take away sins.” Scripture states that the Old Testament sacrifices could never make the person offering them...

He outlived his great, great, great, grandson.

Written by

“Noah was the last recorded person in the Bible to live over 900 years. Genetic bottlenecks at the Flood and subsequently at the Tower of Babel were likely the main reasons for the decline in ages. But consider that Noah lived another 350 years after the Flood and outlived his great, great,...

God and the “sound man.”

Written by

Every human being is morally obligated to thank and praise God for the precious gift of life. So often we treat Him as we would the “sound man” at church, giving Him no thought until something goes wrong. As Christians, we should also be bursting with worship, praise, and thanksgiving...

The horror of 9/11.

Written by

At times, the power of hunger, thirst, pestilence and plague may not be enough to soften the hard hearts of wicked men. America was brought very low by the horror of 9/11, but it wasn’t long until she crawled her way back into sin. Adversity sometimes makes people look to God, but often they...

Become a soul-winner!

Written by

“You all desire to glorify Christ by becoming soul-winners—I hope you do—and be it remembered that, other things being equal, he is the fittest in God’s hand to win souls who pities souls most. I believe he preaches best who loves best, and in the Sunday-school and in...

“God wants to keep people from knowledge!”

Written by

Some skeptics see the word “knowledge” in Gen. 3:5 and conclude that God wants to prohibit man from having knowledge. They claim God likes people to be ignorant and unthinking, but they fail to consider what it is a knowledge of. But their sin brought evil into the world, and once...

Wake up!

The church in America is like a sleeping giant that needs to be awakened.

Studies show that only two percent of evangelicals share their faith. The problem is the millions of spurious converts who sit within the Church—tares among the wheat, foolish virgins among the wise, goats among the...

We come to know Him.

When we come to Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, we no longer walk in darkness. Non-Christians are like someone who is driving directly toward the sun, low on the horizon. It is very difficult to see clearly. But it is so different when driving with a low sun behind you—everythingcan be...

Exhaust our lives for Jesus.

“If by excessive labor we die before reaching the average age of man, worn out in the Master’s service, then glory be to God. We shall have so much less of earth and so much more of heaven. It is our duty and our privilege to exhaust our lives for Jesus. We are not to be living...

Too much hypocrisy in the church?

“Many people have forsaken the church, complaining that there is too much hypocrisy in it. Business is full of hypocrites, too, but no one stops making money because of that. The relationship between sexes, generations, and nations is full of hypocrisy. Notwithstanding, people fall in love,...

Jonah and the Savior.

Written by

Perhaps in Jonah 2, we have insight into the sufferings of the Savior. The waters of the wrath of God encompassed Him as His soul was made an offering for sin (see Isa. 53:10). A crown of thorns was wrapped around His head as He took upon Himself the Genesis curse. Jesus Himself said that He went...

Saul’s sinful heart.

Written by

1 Samuel 19:9. This is the third time Saul attempted to murder David. And it was all because Saul allowed the seed of jealousy to find root in the dirty soil of his sinful heart (see 18:8). Love rejoices at another’s success, while jealousy invites the spirit of hatred to enter and take up...

Are there multiple “Gods” as this verse implies, or is there only one as Deut. 6:4 states: “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one”?

There is only one true God, the Creator of heaven and earth. The Bible teaches that God is Triune by nature. He exists eternally as...

“Now, my friend, are you ready to be weighed by this Law of God? A great many people say that if they keep the Commandments they do not need to be forgiven and saved through Christ. But have you kept them? I will admit that if you perfectly keep the Commandments, you do not need to be saved...

Attending a wedding for a gay couple.

Written by

Is there a difference in attending a wedding for a gay couple and one for a couple that is living together? What about if the bride is pregnant?

The moral Law is spiritual, so anyone who has as much as looked with lust has committed adultery in the heart (see Matt. 5:27,28). It is therefore not...

We should never disregard the warnings of holy Scripture. The Bible is God’s Word and will for sinful humanity. If we refuse to take note, we will suffer terrible consequences. God warned His people that if they refused to walk in obedience, He would severely punish them as a nation. Had they...

If God is good by nature…

Written by

God’s anger against our sins is not only justified, it should be expected if God is good by nature. No judge in a civil court would be considered a “good” judge if he allowed crimes to go unpunished. If he is good, he must see that justice is done, and if God is perfectly good, He...
