Charity is Loving

There is but one way to love and that is to sacrifice for others: 1 John 3:16-18 “By this we know love, that He laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for others. But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes… Read more »

New Covenant in a Few Verses

Is there a summary of salvation? Sort of a Readers Digest version in a verse or two? In my studies yesterday I came across these verses: 2 Timothy 2:11-13 … “If we have died with Him, we will also live with Him; if we endure, we will also reign with Him;; if we deny Him;… Read more »

Love Them Anyways

We are NOT told to love others, we are told to love EVERYBODY… even the unlovely. Luke 6:32-33 “If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.“ It is easy to love those who return that love in kind, but oh so difficult… Read more »

Denying Christ

Have you ever been embarrassed to admit you are a Christian? Perhaps it was in a restaurant and your kids reminded you you had not asked a blessing for the food. Or you are with the cool guys and or gals and they are mocking belief in End Time miracles (I.e. the Rapture), or other… Read more »

Golden Rule

You have heard me say this before… Forgiveness is the most single important teaching of Christ: Matthew 6:12 “and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” Matt: 7: 12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”… Read more »

The Perfect

As previously discussed the Bible states love is the one attribute of you that is eternal… never ending… 1 Corinthians 13:8-10 “Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but… Read more »

What You Can Take With You

There is but one human attribute that survives the grave… 1 John 4:7-12 “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was… Read more »

Forgiveness = Sinlessness

Why is it that both the OT and NT are insistent on the need for forgiveness from a sinless Trinitarian God? Psalms 51:1-2 “Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin!”… Read more »

Warding off the Critics

There is only one routine of which I know and have followed which has kept my faith in the Lord strong: daily; worship, studying of the scripture, Christian fellowship (Matt 18:20), tithe (‘where your treasure is there will your heart be also’ … Matt 6:21), and prayer (James 5:6). Colossians 2:2-5 “that their hearts may… Read more »

Wisdom must Control Power

One of our main goals in life should be to gain wisdom because only then are we able to use power appropriately. James 3:17-18 “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in… Read more »
