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

A misquoted verse.

Written by

This verse, in Mat 5:38, is so often misquoted by the world. Many believe it is giving a license to take matters into our own hands and render evil for evil. However, these are judgments for civil law and not revenge for personal grievances. The spirit of what Jesus is saying here is radically...

Lift up your cry to God!

Written by

“Aspire to be something more than the mass of church members. Lift up your cry to God and beseech him to fire you with a nobler ambition than that which possesses the common Christian—that you may be found faithful unto God at the last, and may win many crowns for your Lord and Master,...

For a cup of pleasure…

Written by

As we witness, we should remember that there is pleasure in sin for a season. Contrary to the claims of modern evangelism, the world can find happiness without Jesus. The prophet Jeremiah complained to the Lord, “Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why are those happy who deal so...

No detailed Darwinian accounts…

“There are no detailed Darwinian accounts for the evolution of any fundamental biochemical or cellular system, only a variety of wishful speculations. It is remarkable that Darwinism is accepted as a satisfactory explanation for such a vast subject—evolution—with so little...

Be faithful to God.

Written by

Intermarrying with pagan nations often lead to the downfall of God’s people. Some may question why God would require families to separate, but even Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, was lured away from God by his many wives to worship worthless idols (see 1 Kings 11:1–8 and...

Our wild rebellious spirit.

Written by

God made the horse like no other animal. It is clothed with a courageous “thunder”—an incredibly brave spirit, an amazing energy that can be harnessed by man and taken into the very heat of battle unafraid. After David sinned with Bathsheba, he cried, “The sacrifices of God...

“I have no doubt that those who would not pray when the ark was being built, prayed when the Flood came; but their prayer was not answered. I have no doubt that when Lot went out of Sodom, Sodom cried to God; but it was too late, and God’s judgment swept them from the earth. My friend,...

A Christian is not a “good person.”

Written by

A Christian is not a “good person.” How can anyone be called a good person when we have no clear definition of the word “good”? Is a rapist a good person because he no longer rapes? Or does a thief become a good person when he gives to charity? Some would say...

“Is it biblical to say this?”

Written by

God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. He is not willing that any perish, but that all come to repentance (see 2 Pet. 3:9). This is why it is biblical to tell sinners that God does not want them to go to hell. It is not His will. He does not send anyone to hell, in the same way a...

Never free from fear.

Written by

Always keep in mind that you will never be free from fear, especially just before you get up to open-air preach. Overcome it through thoughts of the fate of the ungodly, the sacrifice of the cross, and the fact that God is watching you. I have known men who said that it was less...

The ultimate Avenger.

“It was the avenger’s right and duty to slay the murderer (2 Sam. 14:7,11) if he found him outside of a city of refuge. In order that this law might be guarded against abuse, Moses appointed six cities of refuge (Ex. 21:13; Num. 35:13; Deut. 19:1,9). These were in different parts of the...

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...
