QA: How Can we Tell God Is Speaking to Us?

QUESTION: How can we tell when God is speaking to us?  -   January 26, 2020

ANSWER: God only speaks today through His written Word, the Bible. (Hebrews 1:1-2; John 5:46-47) Just as Moses' words were written to be read, so Jesus' words have been written to be read. So Paul preached (Acts 13:26-27). The Bible is not called "the Word of God" for nothing! ... Read More of this and other QA on …

QA: Why Are People Who Believe in Jesus, and Already Saved, Not Christians?

Question: Why do you feel people who believe in Jesus, and have already been saved, are not Christians? - January, 2019

Country Music Theology Mini Article

Many people, it seems, follow a “Country Music” Theology, rather than the Bible. “The Red Dirt Road,” for example, said, “I learned the path to Heaven is full of sinners and believers.”  Really? Psalm 1:5 says “sinners” are not “in the congregation of the righteous.” Jesus said He “did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance” (Matthew 9:13). And the comm…

New Studies Show, by Josh Blackmer, 1/21/18
