Beatitudes-Blessed are the Meek
“Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” (Matt. 5:5) Our world loves physical strength, political power, social influence, and monetary might. It is a world defined by clichés – “might makes right,” “survival of the fittest,” “dog eat dog,” “every man for himself,” etc. More>>

A Perfect Life
What is a perfect life? When I say "a perfect life,” I mean a life that is ideal. I mean a life that is flawless. I mean a life that is just exactly what one would want it to be. I realize that no one has a perfect life in every sense, but I wonder if we would recognize a perfect life if we saw it. More>>




Adoption
Christians know that the Father has only one begotten Son, Jesus Christ the Lord, whom He gave for the world (John 3:16). The term “only begotten Son” indicates a unique relationship that exists only between the Father and the Son. More>>




All or None

Androgeny
There is a strange trend occurring in our society that started years ago. As each year passes by, our society makes more attempts to blur the lines between the roles of males and females. It seems that at some point, in the name of equality, somebody decided that it would be best for men to become more like women and women to become more like men. More>>




Assembly Required?
"Do I have to come every time the church has an assembly?" This question has been asked many times by many people through the years. It has also been answered by many. Some have answered, "Yes", and have cited Hebrews 10:23-25, "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.

Calvinism
Calvinism is a complex doctrine that is often summarized with the acronym TULIP: Total depravity, Unconditional election, Limited atonement, Irresistible grace, Perseverance of the saints. In general, Calvinists do not resent this acronym but rather accept it and sometimes even use it in their own teachings. More>>




Dead Silent
When we attend a funeral, the cold finality of death is realized as we cast our eyes upon the deceased. Before us we see the earthly remains of one who was once alive and thriving but now lies motionless and silent. More>>




Dealing With Sin
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom 3:23). All accountable people have been guilty of sin in their lives, so we all must deal with it in some way. How we choose to deal with our sin will have eternal consequences, so we must be sure to handle it correctly. More>>
