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

Christianity and Roman Catholicism.

Written by

Many Jews understandably equate Christianity with Roman Catholicism. When they watch the news at Christmas or Easter, they see people kneeling and kissing the hand of a man in a white robe with a big white hat and a golden scepter—the pope. Then they see people bowing down to graven images of...

He smashed the window of her car.

Written by

A woman’s car broke down late one moonless night in an unfamiliar area. She was afraid, so she wound the vehicle’s windows up tight, locked the doors, and turned on the car radio to keep her company. She decided that it would be wise to wait until the morning light before going for help....

Prophecies and your commission.

Written by

While prophetic interpretations are fascinating, don’t let them become a distraction from your commission—to preach the gospel to every creature (see Mark 16:15). We have too many who run from conference to conference, filling their minds with theories to a point where they have neither...

The city of Invercargill.

Written by

Do you know where the city of Invercargill is located? More than likely you don’t (it is at the bottom of the South Island of New Zealand). So, does the city not exist because you cannot identify where it is? We know hell exists because we have the greatest authority on this earth stating...

Psalm 58:10,11. Skeptics argue that these verses contradict Prov. 24:16–18: “Do not rejoice when your enemy falls…” The context of these verses is God’s judgment of the wicked. There is a big difference between rejoicing when misfortune comes and when justice is...

The entire Bible is about one Person.

Written by

Most non-Christians have no idea that the entire Bible is about one Person, Jesus of Nazareth. It speaks of Him from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation. It tells us that He created all things, including the eyes you are using to see these words, the lungs that are breathing in the oxygen...

Not only I know the Lord, but I love Him.

Written by

A Christian is someone who knows the Lord. Let me repeat that. Christians know the Lord. Actually know Him. Experientially. They know a Person, not a lifestyle. I’m talking about the God of the universe. They know Him.

I will now personalize this, but I am speaking on behalf of everyone who...

Fraud and bribery.

Written by

How many people, once respected and successful, are now in prison or have seen their lives crumble because they haven’t walked in righteousness? They have instead given in to fraud and bribery. Those who live in holiness and in righteousness (in Christ) save themselves from certain pains in...

God is love, but…

Written by

The world often gravitates to the concept of a god who is “all loving.” Such a loving god would never judge people and damn their souls to hell. However, it is more biblical to say that God is love, but He is also the essence of truth, judgment, and righteousness. Therefore, God is...

Truth is not a text.

Written by

“No one can know truth except the one who obeys truth. You think you know truth. People memorize the Scriptures by the yard, but that is not a guarantee of knowing the truth. Truth is not a text. Truth is in the text, but it takes the text plus the Holy Spirit to bring truth to a human...

Slaves but free.

Written by

It is said that when Abraham Lincoln told a young slave girl he had just purchased that he was setting her free, she asked, “To go anywhere I want to go?” Lincoln said, “Yes.” The girl replied, “Then I’m going with you!” Such is our attitude toward Christ....

“But Adam didn’t die when he disobeyed.”

Written by

Skeptics point to the fact that Adam lived until he was 930 years old (see Gen. 5:5) and claim that he did not die “the day” he ate the forbidden fruit. Just as physical death occurs when our soul separates from our body, spiritual death occurs when our soul is separated from God. Adam...

Lift up your voice.

Lift up your voice like a trumpet and show this people their transgression. Open up the moral Law to bring the knowledge of sin (see Rom. 3:19,20; 7:7; 7:13), then preach that Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us, and that God commands all men everywhere to...

Mormons and the oldest lie.

Written by

Mormons believe the oldest lie in the Book: that man can be like God. To them, God is just a flesh-and-bones man who was exalted to godhood: “As man is, God once was. As God is, man may become.”

Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He...

Blasphemous times.

Written by

We live in blasphemous times, when God’s holy name isn’t honored and is even used as a cuss word. Biblical scribes so honored His name that they would wash their hands before and after they wrote it, yet today it is so despised. Sinners try to justify blasphemy by saying that...

God gives a similar commission to the Christian. We are to prepare ourselves, then arise and speak to this lost and dying world. Sharing the gospel is not an option; it is God’s command.

“Why God allows false prophets rise up?”

Jeremiah is mistaken in his accusation. All of God’s judgments are true and righteous altogether (see Psa. 19:9). However, it is a mystery why God allows false prophets to gain positions of authority, where they can deceive so many with their flowery speeches and misrepresentation of...

Awakened, but not alarmed.

Written by

These people could be referred to as “awakened, but not alarmed.” Explain that God is forgiving—but only to those who repent of their sins. Ask him, “If you died right now, where would you go?” If he says, “Hell,” ask if that concerns him. If it does...

A contradiction?

Written by

Skeptics argue that this verse, Acts 1:18, contradicts Matt. 27:5, which says that Judas “went and hanged himself.” So how did Judas die?

Note that this verse doesn’t state how he died; it just mentions what happened to his body. So there is no headlong, he burst open in the middle...

The pattern in the Scriptures.

David presumed that all God required was sincerity, despite the fact that only the sons of Kohath were supposed to carry the ark and that anyone who touched it would die (see Num. 4:1–15). Remember that the ark contained the Law of God. The ark was holy only because the Law is holy. The...

Justifying godless beliefs.

In his ignorance man searches for what he considers “mistakes” in the Bible to justify his godless beliefs. He is like a man with a magnifying glass who diligently searches for a tiny dirt speck on the Mona Lisa, so he can justify discarding the whole painting as junk. In the following...
