QA: Why Should I Be Baptized Again? I've Confessed

QUESTION: Why should I be baptized again? I've already been baptized in water. - 8/30/2020

ANSWER: The gospel was first preached on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:38, 41), demonstrating that repentance by itself did not save them. When Philip joined the eunuch's chariot and preached Jesus, confession by itself did not save him (Acts 8:37-38). The Holy Spirit taught the meaning of baptism through …

QA: What Does the Bible Say About "Easter Holy Week"?

QUESTION: What does the Bible say about "Easter Holy Week"?

ANSWER: Christians celebrated NO 'holy week' in the New Testament. Christians do NOT re-enact the last week of Jesus' life before the cross.

1. Jesus prophesied the events of His last week (Matthew 20:17-19). The Apostles and Christians "daily in the temple... did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus the Christ" (Acts 5:42), and w…

QA: Do We Need Jesus Today?

QUESTION: Do we need Jesus today? - October, 2020

ANSWER: Absolutely! In a hero saturated society, most of whom are make-believe, Jesus has been lost in the shuffle. Super heroes are a human attempt to elevate someone who is worthy of adulation above others. Consider the Real Jesus: 1. Jesus is Only Begotten. (1 John 4:9; John 15:13; Galatians 3:26; 1 John 3:5; John 8:24) ... Read more of this …

QA: How Can We Remember the Crucifixion of Christ?

QUESTION: What Must Christians Do To Remember the Crucifixion of Christ? - August, 2020

ANSWER:  Simply, preach the Word  (2 Timothy 4:2).  Don't be distracted  (1 Corinthians 2:1-2). ...

A Religious Poll: New Mini Article

“And it happened, as He was alone praying, that His disciples joined Him, and He asked them, saying, ‘Who do the crowds say that I am?’ So they answered and said, ‘John the Baptist, but some say Elijah; and others say that one of the old prophets has risen again’ (Luke 9:18-19).” The opinion on the street was: (1) speculative; (2) divided; (3) wrong! Did Jesus say, “Each one has their …

“Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead. But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus” (John 12:9-11). Living Lazarus was proof Jesus had the power of God over death. One day, when…

Or is it sights and sounds that are not human and hard to identify?  Or is it make-believe "zombies," "vampires," or "werewolves?"  The only time dead people walked the earth again was when Jesus Christ died on the cross, an earthquake opened graves, "and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were …
