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

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.

Written by

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...

Arise and speak.

Written by

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.

“The Great Commission is not an option to be considered; it is a command to be obeyed.” Hudson...

“Why God allows false prophets rise up?”

Written by

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...

Abortion.

The pattern in the Scriptures.

Written by

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...

Our burden.

The Christian carries a “burden.” We look around us at the unspeakable atrocities and carnage of humanity and cry out in despair to God. When we speak out about the fruits of sin, we find that the world contends with us. The unsaved suffer horribly with the disease of sin and yet refuse...

Eternity in the heart.

We overcome our fears through love. The Bible says that perfect love casts out all fear. Think of a firefighter. He’s up a sixty-foot ladder. In front of him are a mother and two children, clinging to each other in a window on the fourth floor of a burning building. Flames are licking at the...

Accusing God of wrongdoing.

Skeptics often point to this passage and accuse God of wrongdoing. However, God didn’t sanction this incident. The Bible is filled with strange, foolish, and wicked acts of men: Lot foolishly offering his daughters to homosexuals, Jephthah’s rash vow (see 11:30–34), and many...

Signs of the curse.

When Adam fell, so did the entire creation (see Gen. 3:17,18). All of creation groans in pain (see Rom. 8:20–22). Everywhere we see signs of the curse: persistent weeds in the soil, diseases in the animal and plant kingdoms, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes, along with human...
