Where true saints should never fear to tread

Right before Moses died, he gave Israel a rousing benediction in Deuteronomy 33. It may have been addressed to that ancient nation, but the principle of that Holy Spirit-filled benediction can be applied to Christ's church, the spiritual Israel (see Galatians 6:15-16; Ephesians 2:12-13). Nevertheless, to be clear when I say that, I  don't mean… Continue reading Where true saints should never fear to tread

Responsibility–it’s meant to be taken personally

One sure sign that a culture or society is on a morally downward trend is when it becomes popular for a segment of the population to unjustifiably blame others for their personal problems.

Escalating a desire to increase and not decrease

Although the meaning of the Lord's teachings don't change, how we apply his teachings to life's situations can be different. For example, he taught against stealing so the meaning of that will never change, but 100 years ago the idea of not stealing did not apply to electronic piracy since there was no Internet or… Continue reading Escalating a desire to increase and not decrease

Moon water leaves scientists scratching their heads

Earth's moon was thought to have been the result billions of years ago of a ginormous collision between an ancient Earth and a rocky object the size of a planet, according to secular scientists.

This past Friday, two women in South Haven, Michigan, came close to losing their lives unexpectedly on that town's south pier at Lake Michigan. As they walked along the pier, a flood of waves rushed in and pushed them off the side into the choppy waters.

Does a day in the Genesis creation account mean 24 hours?

There have been some disputes in recent years about whether or not the word "day" at the beginning of Genesis actually means a 24-hour period. Some have even quoted scriptures like 2 Peter 3:8 (a thousand years is as one day with the Lord) to make the claim this applies to an extended period of… Continue reading Does a day in the Genesis creation account mean 24 hours?

For Christ’s sake, the sake of others, and your own, have a vision

Having visions from Jehovah God is paramount to an individual's spiritual well-being and to a community's well-being also. By "visions," I mean something genuine that goes beyond fake stuff in some Christian circles such as Benny Hinn causing whole groups of people to fall out while at the foot of his stage. Proverbs 29:15 states,… Continue reading For Christ’s sake, the sake of others, and your own, have a vision
