Isn’t it astounding to consider that God Himself has revealed future events to special prophets. Does your faith allow you to believe that? Are you listening?
It doesn’t matter who you think you are, God is not impressed. He will judge all of us on an equal basis. And when God calls a sin, “sin”, it is. How can a deep heart and intelligent mind become so painfully befuddled, to the point that one comes to actually believe that Jesus is okay with sin? So what in the world are people thinking: Calling themselves “Christians” but contradicting Jesus?
Here are three simple guidelines to help us stay true to God’s meaning – when reading the Bible, or hearing a Bible teaching.
I am so saddened by the willy-nilly application of Bible truths nowadays. People make it say whatever they want to – so it will thereby backup their own wishful thinking. The Bible is the standard for Christian thought, seeing as how we believe God inspired Godly men to write as He guided them.

iFacts online are no longer real “facts” when truth no longer matters. I realize now the real reason the world changed the meaning of the word “tolerate”. “For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound… and accurate instruction [that challenges them with God’s truth]; but wanting to have their ears tickled [with […]
So sad, that (in some churches) 30% of those around you in church — are not going to heaven. We cannot assume our fellow attendees believe the truth that God came to earth as a man. And THAT is an integral part of the Gospel of Jesus. In fact, many pastors outright teach false doctrines like this from the pulpit, saying “Jesus isn’t God”. Unbelievable! Why worship Jesus, if He is a mere puny man? His death on the cross would then mean nothing.
The translation done by Brian Simmons, called The Passion (TPT), is not a faithful translation of the original. It is very much fraught with misleading words Simmons adds into the text (…”it is at least 50% longer than the original”). Good Christians should want to go to more accurate translations, and not ever use this deviant version. It has been so adulterated that it is not God’s Word.
The Bible is like no other book. Have you read it lately? It was put together by God to communicate Himself to us. He did this through prophets separated by hundreds of miles, over the course of hundreds of years. Bible predictions are accurate.
What does it mean to “fight the good fight”? What fight are we in, as believers? Of course, if we are not truly following Christ, then it doesn’t change things one way or the other – whether we fight the good fight or not. But, for those who follow Christ sincerely, it is incumbent upon us to fight, as 1 Timothy 1:18-19 shows us.
Over the course of hundreds of years, the Bible was put together by God — so that we could come to believe that Jesus is God Himself come down to earth to redeem a people to Himself, the Messiah, Son of God. God put the Bible together by inspiring writers with His message. Have you read it for what it is – God’s word to mankind? It is important to not read-into-it, not remove what makes us uncomfortable, not reject portions of the Bible where it says what we do not want to hear!

History shows us that God has plans for us. Through recorded history, and through the Bible records, we can clearly see what has happened in the past. There is no need to conjecture or guess about what is factually-based in history (although some will). The records left by real people in ancient times, be it secular or biblical, give us reliable evidence of what actually occurred.
…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 […]
