πŸ‘‘ Your Greatest Need

Even in these challenging financial times, the greatest need of a Christian is not monetary. It is rather found in Colossians 1:11, where Paul prays that we might be

πŸ‘‘ God’s Eternal Purpose

Have you ever considered carefully the opening words of the Bible?Β β€œIn the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Why doesn’t it simply say that God created the Universe? Why theΒ heavenΒ and theΒ earth?

πŸ‘‘ Good Friday

πŸ‘‘ Go, And Sin No More

They were using this fallen woman … ➑

πŸ‘‘ The Origin of Lawlessness

To what can we attribute the lawlessness that currently plagues the world?

πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ What About Me In The Future?

πŸ‘‘ The Day Of Itching Ears

For the professing Church the day of theological controversy has passed. Ecumenism is now the word on every tongue.

πŸ‘‘ The Rightness Of God

There are many theological words which most people β€” even most Christian people β€” do not under-stand. Among these is the Bible word β€œrighteousness”. Actually, though, this word is very simple and we ought to understand about God’s righteousness even before we learn of His love.

πŸ‘‘ The Bible and Its Author

Back on the shelf she placed the book with a sigh. It was too dull and uninteresting to wade through. She didn’t feel like reading anyway; in fact, she was utterly bored, and didn’t feel like doing anything.
