Blog - Is God's Word Written to Intentionally Confuse Some People?


It is true that "the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding." (Pro 2:6). It is true that God's commandments, testimonies, and precepts (in other words, His word) give wisdom and understanding (Psa 119:98-100). It is true that God commands His people to "get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth....wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding." (Pro 4:5,7).

Blog - Why Christians Should Hate Their Parents

Now that I have your attention..... Oftentimes when explaining the doctrine of election to someone, Romans 9:11-13 will be used as a proof text to show that God chooses some people as the objects of His love and mercy ("Jacob have I loved" - Rom 9:13), but leaves others in their sins which they inherited from Adam (Rom 5:12), and they therefore remain the objects of God's judgment and hatred ("Esau have I hated" - Rom 9:13).

Blog - Be Still


Living in a fast paced world and one which is characterized by uncertainty, we all too often wonder and worry about what the next decade, year, month, or even week will bring, which is the source of much tension, stress, and anxiety. In this state of madness, how often do we take a minute and "Be still, and know that I am God..." (Psa 46:10)?

Blog - Worshiping God in Spirit and in Truth


"But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." - Joh 4:23-24

Blog - Getting it Backwards

Gen 11:4- And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

Blog - It's Out of This World


Have you ever wondered why you can spend eight hours a day with coworkers with whom you share common career interests, and possibly even personal interests, and yet only ever connect on a superficial level with them, and if you were to never see them again you wouldn't even care? But at the same time, have you ever wondered why you can meet a person that has been newly baptized into your church, or a member of another church of like-faith, and you can carry on a conversation with them for an hour and walk away feeling like you have known them your whole life?

Blog - The Day of Small Things


In an age of bigness -- Big houses, Big SUVs, Big screen TVs, Big Government, Big banks too Big to fail, Big Labor, Big Pharma, Big Agriculture, and yes, even Big Religion -- the small, but important, things in life are often marginalized or even held in contempt. We live in a time and culture where the prevalent philosophy is "If it's bigger, it's got to be better". If the question penned by the prophet Zechariah, "For who hath despised the day of small things?" (Zec 4:10) were asked to the average person on the street today, the answer would likely be, "I do."

Blog - Faith-Grace-Faith-Grace

Ephesians 2:8-9: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9) Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Acts 18:27: And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:

Blog - The Shirley God

We are told in the Bible that there are “gods many, and lords many” (1Co 8:5) and today is no exception. There is a god that is being promoted in the world today and she goes by the name of Shirley. Without realizing it, quite often many people profess to believe in and talk about this god named Shirley. Many of you have probably come across this god when you are witnessing to others of the many aspects of the truth of God’s word.

Blog - Does it Really Matter What Version of the Bible We Use?

Our God is the God of heaven and earth. He has revealed Himself to us in His holy word as the triune God, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” (1Jo 5:7). “God was manifest in the flesh” (1Ti 3:16) as the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the eternal creator God; for we are told that God created all things “by Jesus Christ” (Eph 3:9).
