Do You Smell Smoke?

An alarm has been sounding for some time now concerning the state of the Church but very few have paid attention. There is a small fire burning in the basement and the faint smell of smoke rises to those who are asleep. Nothing to be alarmed about! It is small and faint! Should I then […]

Churches Conforming to the World

God intervenes radically only in response to a radical attitude on the part of the believer—radical not in regard to political means but in regard to faith; and the believer who is radical in his faith has rejected all means other than those of faith.

The Crowd

The warnings are clear to our young people against going to dens of iniquity, even out of curiosity, because no one knows what might happen.

Christians Who Lean on the Arm of Flesh

It will always be necessary in this life to plead with the hearts and minds of men, even Christian men, to understand the message of the Gospel. Men need to be convinced. It is not enough that something be said only once; the truth needs to be repeated over and over again. When dealing with […]

Are the Teachings of Jesus Credible? : A Call to Fidelity

Did Jesus teach by word and deed the things He expects His children to imitate? If not, then what was the purpose of His appealing to our ability to follow Him? Was Jesus being unrealistic in His great sermon where He plainly states that we should love our enemies and resist not an evil person? […]
