“And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb…” Luke 24:2 NASB https://bible.com/bible/100/luk.24.2.NASB This question is THE critical question. The tomb was placed under guard by a full Roman squad of 80 men (all of whom carried the Roman short sword) and an unspecified number of temple guards (it is hard to imagine there were fewer than what the Romans provided, and these were trained with elegant clubs). These men we...

As a pastor with a young internet ministry, you can imagine i read a LOT of things. Some I agree with, some I do not, but I still read it to know what it says. As a self-identified Berean, I try to see what the scripture really says about the topic that I am reading or researching. This activity is not for the young in faith or those who are faint of heart, I think....

God often describes us has His sheep in the Bible, and that is more than a little accurate. We tend to herd (some call them packs, but we have no real teeth for anyone than other sheep), we are very panicky, very easily injured, and sometimes we smell terrible. And yet, God describes Himself as a shepherd (John 10:11) to us – the good shepherd that lays down His life for the sheep. Psalm 23...

Before you think uh oh, here comes the fire and brimstone, hold that thought. This article isn’t what you think… This article is about me. I hope as a larger extension of it, you should gain the benefits that God has for you from its’ truth. When I first became a Christian in high school, I had this idea that I was still like everybody else. I could do the same things, but it was...

Our Need To Forgive

Because Christ forgave us. God the Father ‘made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him’ (2 Corinthians 5:21). Where is the justice? The cross makes forgiveness legally and morally right: ‘For the death that He died, He died to sin, once for all’ (Romans 6:10). Forgiveness is required by God. As soon as Jesus spoke the amen to His model prayer–which...

Do ALL People Go to Hell?
Soteriology / September 10, 2015

Thank you so much for your question, “Do ALL people go to hell?” The answer is a definite, resounding “NO.” Not all people will go to hell. According to the bible people will either go to hell or go to heaven. The bible does say in, Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:” (KJV) This means that our human body will grow old and eventually...

Discipleship 101 – “The Apostle’s Doctrine” – The Word of God
Uncategorized / September 10, 2015

As we consider the four main practices of the Christian disciple, as seen in our key verse of Acts 2:42 (They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.), we should remember that these have both individual and corporate implementation. Because the corporate practices are built on the activity of the individual, the next series of articles will consider the...

How should we share Christ?
General , Resources , Soteriology / September 10, 2015

I’ve heard a great many opinions on this topic, ranging from those who feel that it is important that people know that they’re going to hell and there’s nothing they can do about it to those who feel that we don’t need to share the gospel because we’re called to live it – and everything in between. So who is right? First, we need to understand something – people are in danger of eternal separ...

Discipleship 101 – What does it mean to be a Disciple?
Anthropology , Ecclesiology , Resources , Soteriology / September 3, 2015

The story recorded in Acts 2 gives a great model of discipleship by showing us what the very first group of Christians did among themselves. Verse 42 reads: “And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.” (NASB) This says several things about discipleship, but the most important of those can be found in the phrase “they continued steadfastly.” The Christian journey ...
