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

Marriage and Contraception

Written by
The topic of this post is a wee bit off the normal apologetic posts, but it is indeed apologetics in that it is about refuting Roman Catholic abuse of Scripture on a serious issue.
About 35 years ago I was having a discussion with a fellow employee who was Roman Catholic. He was trying to covert me...

Warfare Prayer

Written by
Warfare prayer is without a shred of support in the Old Testament, and is specifically prohibited in the New (2 Pet. 2:10-12; Jude 8-10). Then again, nothing is lost in rejecting this technique, because we do not need to defeat Satan.. Christ has defeated him already, and will one day destroy him....

Islam

I have discovered that the vast majority of people in the world have no real understanding of Islam (except for the Muslims themselves), thinking that for the most part they are just another religion with some “radicals” who are abusing the religion to commit terrorism.

On Jordon's Stormy Banks

Written by
Yesterday at church we sang this song, and like it. Older versions in an old hymns we have, have different music. Some sing the chorus after each verse, while others sing the chorus after two verses. We sang it after each verse. This is the only music we’ve ever sung to, by Christopher Miner.

What Child Is This?

Written by

What child is this, who, laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the king
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary
Why lies he in such mean estate
Where ox and...

Perilous Times

“Perilous times” have indeed entered the religious and secular arena of our day. Biblical discernment has been all but abandoned in the church. Hatred among those who are normally civil now seems unrestrained. Political viciousness across party lines is unprecedented. Pro-abortion...

A Good Book Wants to Leave my Library

Written by
Here is an excellent book I purchased 9 years ago. It does have a whole lot of highlighting, if that bothers you. It is a paperback of 160 pages.
There are some obsolete things rendered that way to new laws (e.g.the legalization of same-sex “marriage”), but overall the book is a...

A Report on Early Christians

They dwell in their own countries simply as sojourners…. They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. They obey the prescribed laws, and at the same time, they surpass the las by their lives. Hey love all men but...

The church's one Foundation

Exposing Error

Written by
Exposing error is most unpopular work. But from every true standpoint it is worthwhile work. To our Savior, it means that He receives from us, His blood-bought ones, the loyalty that is His due. To ourselves, if we consider "the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt," it...
