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

Did God sanction polygamy?

Written by

It would seem that in the Old Testament God sanctioned polygamy. Not so. Jesus said that in the beginning “the two shall become one flesh” (Matt. 19:4,5). He did not say “the fifteen shall become one flesh.” God gave Israel kings, but that was His permissivenot Hisperfectwil...

No more death, tears, or suffering.

Written by

By Tommy Mitchell, Answers in Genesis

If creatures lived millions of years before God made the Garden of Eden, then suffering and death arose before sin ruined creation. In fact, their fossil remains would be buried under Adam’s feet. But that’s not the case!

In Gen. 1—3 we are told...

God’s divine attributes.

Written by

Here is a revelation of God’s divine attributes. He is jealous. He takes vengeance. He becomes furious and wrath-filled. Yet, our all-powerful God is also slow to anger. He holds back His terrible wrath because He is rich in mercy (see Eph. 2:4). He is not willing that any perish (see 2 Pet....

Ungodly society.

Written by

How tragic for any parents to see their sons slaughtered before their eyes. Yet, that happens so often with the ungodly in contemporary society. They don’t fear of the Lord, and so their children grow up like their parents, become involved in a violent lifestyle of drugs or alcohol, and die...

A sword that divides.

Written by

Jesus quoted this verse in regard to the persecution that comes to those who live godly in Christ Jesus (see Matt. 10:35,36; Luke 12:53). The gospel is a sword that divides us from this evil world. When someone becomes a Christian, he is like an ex-criminal who has become a police officer. He has...

The inference in this question is, “These were mythical gods, and so is yours.” Atheists are correct about these gods being myths. Man gravitates toward idolatry (making up false gods) as a moth does to a flame. There are millions of false gods—Hinduism alone has 330...

Seek counsel and heed it.

Wisdom is so often forged in the sufferings of experience. Youth forget that the aged were once young and impetuous, and formed much of their life’s philosophies from their mistakes. A wise man said that parents should never worry if teenagers don’t seem to listen to their advice...

“Lust” is at the forefront of sin.

Written by

If you could sum up in one word what is keeping most of this world from coming to Christ, what would that word be? Perhaps you would say “unbelief,” or “rebellion” or “sin.” True, but I believe “lust” is at the forefront of sin. The Bible says that...

Hate is murder.

“I used to say: ‘What is the use of taking up a Law like this in an audience where, probably, there isn’t a man who ever thought of, or ever will commit, murder?’ But as one gets on in years, he sees many a murder that is not outright killing. I need not kill a person...

“What about those who have never heard?”

Written by

The inference is that those who have never heard the gospel are basically good people who do not deserve to go to hell. So, tell the questioner that they will be fine—if they are good people. However, in God’s eyes “good” is moral perfection in thought, word, and deed. So if...

Does God hate?

Written by

By Stuart Scott

Men love to hear about the lovingkindness of God, but rarely acknowledge His abhorrence (hatred) of evildoers. Although it is only natural to want to hear the pleasant and avoid the offensive, Scripture does not give us that option. Being made to realize our guilt is very...

An idolatrous perception of God.

Written by

When truth is not preached, mercy isn’t understood, and the world therefore lacks the knowledge of God’s character. The result is an idolatrous perception of God, which leads to lawlessness (transgression of the Moral Law). Notice that Israel’s sins were violations of the Ten...

The genesis of life.

We need no longer live in ignorance. The secular world is forever searching for its “genesis” (beginning). The lost have no idea of their real origins because they ignore the Book that tells us what happened, and Who made it happen. However, the most effective way to convince skeptics...

A “perfect crime.”

There is no such thing as a “perfect crime.” The Day of Judgment will see that everytransgression of the moral Law will receive just retribution. God will bring every work to judgment, including every secret thing whether it is good or evil. What a fearful thing for guilty sinners and...

Is pedophilia wrong?

Written by

Ask a relativist if pedophilia is wrong, and he may say that if it is against the law, it is simply wrong for that society. His framing of civil law is governed by whether people get “hurt,” rather than by “right” or “wrong.” His argument will be that pedophilia...

Tip for open-air preaching.

On the sidewalk in front of you, draw a chalk line or place some colorful masking tape in a semi-circle 12–15 feet from your “soapbox.” (Be sure to remove it before you leave.) When people stop to listen, ask them, “Could you do me a big favor? To save my voice, could you...

Is God evil?

Written by

Unthinking skeptics often point to this verse, Isaiah 45:7, and accuse God of being evil. But Scripture tells us that God brings calamity (KJV, “evil”) on mankind as just punishment for their sins. He does this for the purpose of leading people to repent and turn to Him. But those who...

When is the day of salvation?

David’s conscience.

The mighty three had a love for David that was more than lip service, demonstrated by risking their lives merely to get a drink of water for their beloved leader. Yet, David’s reaction to their display of love was to pour the water out on the ground as a drink offering to the Lord. Some may...

Let me tell you about my father. When I was young, he regularly left my mother and us three kids to fend for ourselves. I was there when he killed a helpless animal with his bare hands. Not only that, but he hit me (often). Based on this information, you could be justified in believing that my...
