Angels

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

Angels are a popular subject today with much speculation about what they look like, what they do, and what their role is.

We have to be very careful to go back to the Bible to what has been revealed because Satan has his ministers who appear as an angel of light (Deut. 29:29; 2 Cor. 11:14-15).

We are warned to not to be deceived by those who distort the Scriptures to their own destruction but grow spiritually (2 Peter 3:16-18).

Let us study what the Bible says on this subject.

Three Ways God Cares For Us

Saturday, May 26th, 2012

by Jonathan Glaesemann

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for He careth for you.” (1 Peter 5:6-7)

When it comes to how God cares for us, the ways are numerous. Because God created us, He is the ultimate caregiver, and has proved this to us by sending His Son, the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. Let us now look at three ways that the Scriptures declare God cares for us.

First, God cares for us as a mother comforts: “As one, whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem” (Isaiah 66:13). If anyone could comfort you when you were down and felt very low, your… Continue reading

The Role Of The Mother In The Home

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

by Irven Lee

The mother has a special place of responsibility in the home. Aged women are to teach "the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discrete, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed" (Tit. 2:4, 5). This one passage does a wonderful job of outlining the role of the mother in the home.

Let us think of that mature woman who still has a responsibility to her daughters even though they may also be homemakers. The training should have started early while the daughters were young, but the teaching may continue because there are many important lessons that need to be deeply implanted in these young women. One way… Continue reading

Dishonoring God and Marriage

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

by Joe R. Price

President Obama’s announcement that he personally approves of same‑sex marriage was not unexpected. Politicians make political calculations and we have witnessed that once again. There is little doubt that the politics of reelection led him to publicly state a view he held once before (in 1996) and to which he “evolved” again.

Same‑sex marriage is just one type of defilement that dishonors the marriage bed (Heb. 13:4). To dishonor marriage is to dishonor God, who gave it. He will judge all who hold marriage in contempt by their sin treatment of it and those in it. Fornication (sexual immorality) does great harm to marriages and families (not to mention the souls of those caught up in such sin, 1 Cor. 6:9‑11). Therefore, Christians oppose the sin… Continue reading

Thinking Differently

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

by Mark Mayberry

By the first century, religious thinking among the Jews had come to be characterized by several different outlooks. The Pharisees, the Sadducees, and Essenes each had their spheres of influence. Having staked out their doctrinal turf, they sought adherents to their particular party. Added to this mix were the distinctly political viewpoints of the Herodians and the Zealots. Thus, the marketplace of religious ideas was not merely a melting pot, it was a simmering container of confusion and counterfeit truth. Judaism of the first century had become fragmented, ritualistic, and tradition‑bound. Therefore, when Jesus stepped forward and began expounding the simple gospel message, people took notice. The common people, those longing for better spiritual instruction, heard him gladly (Mark 12:35‑37). He taught as one having authority, and… Continue reading

Blameless Conscience

Sunday, May 6th, 2012

Many people live their life either ignoring, neglecting, or defiling their conscience.

The Bible teaches that we should have a good, clean, and pure conscience before God. (2 Tim. 1:5; Heb. 9:14; 1 Tim. 1:3)

Paul did his best to always maintain a blameless conscience before God and man (Acts 24:16).

In order to do that, we must have a correct knowledge of what our conscience is, how to cleanse, train, and protect it.
