Psalm 86: 11-13 Teach me your way, Lord,
that I may rely on your faithfulness;
give me an undivided heart,
that I may fear your name.
I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;
I will glorify your name forever.
For great is your love toward me;
you have delivered me from the depths,
from the realm of the dead. Continue reading

In countries where the church is badly persecuted, Christians often tend to have a good grasp of the true nature of what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ. When persecution heats up, the Christians on the receiving end have a choice. They can abandon the faith or they can keep following. And those who continue to follow come to understand clearly what being a Christian really involves. Continue reading

I recently saw a short TV interview of the well known atheist apologist, Richard Dawkins. He made some of the usual points that he makes when discussing religion, and these seemed to resonate with the woman who was interviewing him. You could tell by her attitude that she clearly admired him and held him in high regard.
Seeing this made me wonder if the interviewer had thought through the implications of what atheists like Dawkins believe. I wondered too if she had considered how plausible some of the arguments he makes really are.

If we were in the ocean and saw someone swimming, and all of a sudden we see a shark fin sticking out of the water, what would we do? In most cases we’d scream, SHARK! We would warn the person of the imminent danger of being in the water with a shark nearby. Their life would be in danger and could possibly die of a shark attack. In the same manner, the Bible teaches us that everyone who has not repented and trusted in Jesus will die and be condemned to eternal condemnation. Continue reading

“And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom,” (Luke 23:42).
The thief didn’t have a prayer to stand on. He had no power, no redeeming goodness, and no time to fix anything. Blackness was closing in. Eternal loss was waiting, just beyond the thin line that separates all men from eternity. Continue reading

“Thy word is true from the beginning.”
Is the Bible to be taken literally? That is, do we take the text at face value whenever it’s plain meaning makes sense? We all know that it makes no sense to believe that Jesus is a gate or a lion; these are figures of speech and, like parables, we interpret them spiritually rather than literally. By literal, I mean that when the plain sense of the text makes sense then we accept it at face value. We simply believe it. Continue reading

Despite the clear evidence against Evolution, it dominates the classroom and society and has had a devastating effect on belief in the Bible. For many, faith in Evolution replaces the need for faith in God and this suits their itching ears as they feel free to make their own rules. Because there is no God, so they believe, they are not accountable to anyone so they can choose their own right and wrong. The following are just a few examples that debunk Evolution.

I was looking recently at a debate on YouTube between Mike Licona and Greg Cavin on the resurrection of Jesus. One of the arguments that Cavin used against the resurrection caught my attention and I have been thinking about it since. I think I am right in saying that it is an argument that was also used by the eighteenth century humanist, David Hume. Continue reading

This is one doctrine I probably cowardly avoided because some bible teachers that I truly respected and thought were very enlightening men and women believes this teaching. The belief that once a person in saved they could never lose their salvation, people like Charles Stanley, a man I saw as a great and insightful bible teacher. I really had no intention of addressing this doctrine but something happened to changed that. I was recovering from injuries I had received a couple of months earlier. In the later days of my recovery I had fallen into the habit of lying around with the TV remote in my hand searching for and watching my favorite TV programs; football and crime investigative documentaries, programs like Forensic Files and Snapped.
