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

What About Mysticism?

Written by
Mysticism is the exaltation of subjective experience over objective truth....  How many times have you heard the plea for us to get rid of our "silly doctrine," and come together in unity?... [Doctrine] is the body of objective truth, the teaching of God's Word.  Doctrine is the only...

Last week I got a message from a person with a far-left ideology in his religious and political beliefs; he made fun of me and said it was childish for me to have Snoopy on my profile, implying a lack of credibility on my part because of it.
Well Snoopy is a very important part of my life, and is...

What We Believe About God Matters

Written by
It does matter what we believe about God, about the Bible, and about what constitutes spiritual growth. Such doctrine dictates how we conduct and live our public and private lives.  If our beliefs on these matters are not solely focused and founded on Scripture without the infusion of human...

Emotionalism Cannot Be a Guide

Written by
We must judge teachings and practices, and these cannot be judged accurately apart from the Bible.  We must not judge something to be of God merely because it results in changed lives for the better, particularly when it is presented as a "new move" that all must accept.
If an individual's...

What Produces Your Experience?

Written by
Experiences can be produced by psychological, physiological, or demonic phenomena.  The only real test for any experience is this: Does it square with the Word of God?

Experiences Grow From Belief

Written by
We are not to base what we believe on what we have experienced.  The reverse is true.  Our experiences will grow out of what we believe.  And we must continually examine and evaluate our experiences in light of the objective truth of God's precious Word.

Subjective Experience vs Objective Truth

Written by
There are only two basic approaches to biblical truth.  One is the historical, objective approach, which emphasizes God's action toward men and women as taught in Scripture.  The other is the personal, subjective approach, which emphasizes the human experience of God

Experience vs Scripture

Written by
There are two considerations:
1. Understanding of scripture
2. Experience in life.
If one places experience first, scripture gives way and one compromises his understanding of it. If scripture is placed first, God will show how the experience fits.  Our faith should provide a basis for our...

The Art of Choosing Your Love

In 1995, at a home-school conference, I acquired a 46-page booklet by Pastor Jim West titled, The Art of Choosing Your Love. Although there are some legalistic ideas in it due to being part of the “courtship” movement, overall he had some very good advice. For provoking thought, below I...
