Sin's Sly Beginning: Mini Article Now Available

The Devil, as a serpent (Genesis 3:1Revelation 12:9), tempted Eve in three steps: 

1) Doubt - “Has God indeed said, 'You shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?" (Genesis 3:1); 

2) Denial - "You will not surely die” (Genesis 3:4); 

3) Distrust -"For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil" (Genesi…

"The wicked shall be turned into hell, And all the nations that forget God" (Psalm 9:17).

A Truly New Year: Mini Article

Under the Law of Moses, God began each Jewish New Year with the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 16). With a special, once a year ceremony, the sins of the people were pronounced on a “scapegoat” and a sacrificial sin offering and a burnt offering were also offered. The nation was to begin their yearly planning by making things right with God. Under the Law of Jesus Christ, God “now commands all men ev…

Christ or Christmas? Mini Article Series, Part 4

Jesus said of the Pharisees: “’And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'

Mini Article part 3: Star Light, Star Bright

Reason for the Season PART 3: 

On December 21, the Jupiter and Saturn regular 20-year conjunction will occur to observers, this time appearing closer than usual. The closest observable conjunction before that was in medieval 1226!

Be Merry Without Alcohol - Mini Article Available

“Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy” (Romans 13:13).

Thanksgiving Without God? - Mini Article Now Available

It's impossible to have a “Thanksgiving” unless there is someone to thank!  The Apostle Paul wrote: “I thank God, whom I serve with a pure conscience, as my forefathers did, as without ceasing I remember you in my prayers night and day” (2 Timothy 1:3).  (1) God is the only source of blessings to thank, so:  "Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD” (Jere…

He is not here; for He is risen, as He said” (Matthew 28:5-6). “For this is the love of G…
