It’s like, all of us humans – we are in the box, all of us. We are all inside. God is outside. The question is: How on earth do we get outside – to be with God? Simple as that. There is a lot more to it, but that’s it.
By Brendon Powell There seems to be more than one Jesus to choose from these days. Which one is the true Jesus and who am I following? There’s a ‘seeker friendly’ Jesus: he’s the one who will not offend anyone in anyway. He loves everyone no mater what they do. There’s a ‘sow and reap’ […]
GOD vs. SCIENCE -author unknown- A science professor begins his school year with a lecture to the students, “Let me explain the problem science has with religion.” The atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of his new students to stand. “You’re a Christian, aren’t you, son?” “Yes sir,” the […]
Almighty God has provided a very specific justice system to clear our name and our well-deserved verdict of “Guilty”. He has deemed that through a genuine faith in Jesus Christ – the sacrifice of His Son can make us worthy. Is your faith genuinely in the genuine Jesus? Have you been declared “worthy”, or are you still “guilty” before The Creator?
by John MacArthur as quoted at: http://apprising.org/2008/12/we-feel-homosexuality-is-not-a-sin/ Quotes from a neglected book, Reckless Faith, by John MacArthur: Neo-orthodoxy is the term used to identify an existentialist variety of Christianity. Because it denies the essential objective basis of truth—the absolute truth and authority of Scripture—neo-orthodoxy must be understood as pseudo-Christianity. Its heyday came in the middle of […]
-Billy Graham’s Prayer For His Nation ‘Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We […]

THE BELL I KNOW WHO I AM I am God’s child (John 1:12) I am Christ’s friend (John 15:15) I am united with the Lord (1 Cor. 6:17) I am bought with a price (1 Cor 6:19-20) I am a saint (set apart for God). (Eph. 1:1) I am a personal witness of Christ. (Acts […]
Never forget that “researching” is all about finding the truth about a matter. Be careful not to get caught-up in the process and forget what is really true. Do you want what is real, or just a vapor in the wind? One factor is data, another is opinion, theory, and so-called “conclusions”. So much “intelligence” wasted […]
Punishment and Reward …blog by Dennis Swick Sometimes parents can tell their child, “do this and you’ll get that.” This is a way of rewarding a child for good behavior. If the child behaves they might get ice cream as their reward. My son-in-law some times says to his 6 year old son, “if you […]
A blog on the internet states, “The laws that govern the Universe must exist before the Universe, therefore…” But who said the laws that govern the universe must exist before the universe? If there was no universe, why would there need to be laws to govern it? To state this, one would have to say […]
I have the impression looking at some information that I see, read in newspapers, or hear on the radio that people in general do not take seriously the fact that God is furious, shows indignation, and is angry about sin. And it is interesting to me that people in general do not like the word […]
[Editor’s note: The “salvation” of God is free…, but this article considers the nature of God.] Is God truly “free”? This topic has been discussed by many, and the conclusions have been either one way or the other. Conclusion of Some: God is no freer than a robot Some believe that God is no freer […]
Source: Based on part of Is God Free? The Bible teaches that God cannot change. This is taught in the following verses. Malachi 3:6 – “I the LORD do not change. So you, O descendants of Jacob, are not destroyed”. Numbers 23:19 – “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son […]
Source: Based on part of Is God Free? …regarding “Freedom” Is it possible for God to be free if He is perfect in everything he does (Genesis 1:21) and He is perfect (1 Peter 1:16)! Thomas Aquinas, an Italian Catholic Philosopher of 1225 to 1274 A.D., argued that the mind of God is immutable (it […]
Source: Based on part of Is God Free? Man has a free will with which to make a choice: (1) John 3:36 >> “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” Hebrews 11:24-25 >> “By […]
Some say yes, that you should forgive those who do not ask forgiveness. Others say no, that the person should not be forgiven until they repent and then you can forgive them. Those that say you should forgive an unrepentant person use verses like Colossians 3:13 that say, “Bear with each other and forgive whatever […]
We are servants of Christ, stewards of what he entrusts into our hands. Biblically, our giving belongs to His Church – not to our local body of believers. Those who serve the Lord in ministry are deserving of receiving support from His Church.

…would God give us erroneous documents and call them “His”? Get real! Is God really going to give us the ‘truth’ …that isn’t!? The fact that Jesus “the Christ” fulfilled over 360 Scriptural prophecies – convinces me of the veracity of Scripture. Look at the evidences. Forget the critics! What about you? Are you […]

We are continually bombarded by the fiery darts of the Evil One. And when these little pricks hit us, we need to put-out the flames, quickly. Doubts, depression, feelings of inadequacy, troubles, unruly kids…, when they come at us, we “have to declare” the truths of God, and we have to choose Truth over lies.
Heaven is a joyful place. That is hard for me to imagine… Everywhere I look around me, I see so many problems, issues and unresolved conflicts. But in heaven, they won’t exist anymore. There will only be joy because my sins have been paid for by the blood of Jesus Christ. One of the main things that describes being in heaven is JOY. The word “joy” has a much deeper meaning than just happiness. To be happy can change so quickly. It can come and go in a moment. But joy…
…a Christian´s Perspective on Homosexuality Quoted from: http://www.indegayforum.org/news/show/31489.html Donny | April 18, 2008, 11:33am | # I’m up to the challenge of gay theology questions: In-hospitality towards others and “haughtiness” were the sins of Sodom. But Ezekiel is quite explicit about sexual sins being front and center as well. “Haughtiness” and the word “Gay” […]
Christian Answers Regarding Islam 1. The Koran purports it does not contradict the Bible but supports it.

Faith will not be necessary in heaven. Faith and hope will be ¨done away¨with (1 Corinthians 13:v8). When we finally are brought into His Kingdom, instead of on this earth with His Holy Spirit, then we will have Him, not just merely faith and hope.
“You may be asking yourselves, “How can we tell if a prophet’s message really comes from the Lord?”” -Deuteronomy 18:21. How can we distinguish the true from the false?
The charismatic movement has been troubled by unbiblical practices and teachings. I am amazed at how folks are so easily mislead. “Many have exchanged the truth for a lie and chosen experience over content.” Look and examine and see, and compare with what the Bible teaches.
