The Inerrancy and Infallibility of Scripture (1)

Share

            Through the centuries men and women of God have both devoted and sacrificed their lives for the sake of a book they deemed worthy. This book, of course, is the Bible. They did not see a book from man, nor a book corrupted by man: they saw words from God. In that this book embodied God’s words, it was […]

The Inspiration of Scripture (4) – Some Concluding Thoughts

Share

What is at Stake? – Implications of the Doctrine             Israel was the nation to which the oracles of God were committed. The idea of having a written and codified law seemed simple enough to them, causing them to vow rather ignorantly, “All that the Lord has commanded, we will do.” However, they soon realized otherwise in their forty years […]

Daniel: He Believed in His God – Lessons from Daniel 6 on Faithfulness in Persecution

Share

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego faced similar threats as Daniel did, but at least they had each other. Daniel apparently only had himself. (Of course, we will see that this wasn’t his mentality). Where will we be when all our moral support is gone and everybody except our own self turns against God and therefore against us? Now, it may be […]

Conditions Preceding Revival – Lessons From Samuel

Share

God is a God Who works, not only in spite of our failures, but through them. He works in difficult circumstances. He works in times of departure from His Word. Thus it should be no surprise that as we come to the book of 1 Samuel we find God working through a barren woman and a failing high priest. This […]

The Assembly and Its Interactions

Share

Throughout Scripture, there is an undeniable emphasis on “one another,” and the obvious reason is that life is seldom spent without interaction of some sort, especially interaction from believer to believer. Here is the problem: when two or more people with fallen human nature get together, that nature will never fail to complicate relations. So then, when we live out […]
