We Are NOT In Despair: Mini Article 8/3/2020

"But as a mountain falls and crumbles away, And as a rock is moved from its place; As water wears away stones, And as torrents wash away the soil of the earth; So You destroy the hope of man” (Job 14:18-19). Job voiced the danger of being surrounded by downers! By the time we read the headlines, see network TV News, watch destructive TV shows or dismal movies, or listen to our dreary “friends,” it’s no wonder that “depression” has enveloped our land. But if we listen to God in Romans 15:13: “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing.” Christians learn to speak like Paul, “We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair” (2 Corinthians 4:8).  - August 3, 2020

Who Has Seen Jesus? Mini Article 1/27/2020

Jesus is revealed in the Bible – not on an iron, foil on a bottle of cider, a drainpipe, a tortilla, the side of a freezer, a potted asparagus fern, or a shroud of Turin! But, there is NO physical description of Jesus Christ on Earth anywhere in Scripture! Every depiction of Jesus, whether as a baby, an adult or on a cross, is totally without Scriptural fact, and entirely made-up by someone’s imagination! To Thomas, who had trouble believing that Jesus was raised from the dead, “Jesus said to him, ‘Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’" (John 20:29). We are to be looking in the Scriptures for Jesus Christ, not imagining Him in any other place!     - January 27, 2020

How Does God Speak Today?- Mini Article Now Available

“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son” (Hebrews 1:1-2). Jesus has said: “the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day” (John 12:48). But how does anyone know the words of Jesus? “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away” (Luke 21:33). The things in the New Testament “are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31). We must believe everything the Bible says about Jesus – no more, and no less! His words are preserved in the Bible.   - February 3, 2020

Unqualified Love of God? Mini Article Available Now

The only verse many people accept is “God is love” (1 John 4:8). They think that means “God loves me regardless of how I live.” They could not be more wrong, for Jesus Christ also said, “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him" (John 14:21). Sinners want God to love them as they are, but David said of God, “The boastful shall not stand in Your sight; You hate all workers of iniquity” (Psalm 5:4-5). God “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4); and “now commands all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30).  - February 17, 2020
