The Holy Spirit and His Work in the “Born Again” Believer

When Jesus was physically on earth He had asked people to believe in Him and follow. Jesus said to His disciples that He was going to leave and go back to where He came from, Heaven (John 3:13; 6:38.) But He would not leave us without a Helper; he called Him the comforter, (another like himself). In Jn.14:16 Jesus says to the disciples, soon to be apostles of the church “And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may… Continue

Meekness and Humility God’s Cure for Pride, Haughtiness, and Egotism

Why should people be meek and humble? What problems are caused by pride, arrogance, ego, self-exaltation, haughtiness, and self-will? Should you learn self-assertiveness, or should you learn not to be proud and haughty? What does the Bible teach about meekness, humility, gentleness, and lowliness in contrast to pride, selfishness, self-will, and arrogance?



Introduction:

Two of the greatest characters in the Bible possessed in common the qualities we want to study in this… Continue

SATANS WAR ON THE CHURCH

How Satan Used Paganism to Attack the Church



To the ordinary public the connection between Paganism and Christianity still seems rather remote. Indeed the common notion is that Christianity was really a miraculous interposition into and dislocation of the old order of the world; and that the pagan gods fled away in dismay before the sign of the Cross, and at the sound of the name of Jesus.



Doubtless this was a view much encouraged by the early Church itself–if only… Continue

“The Christian’s Attitude Toward His Body.”

Caring for the physical body is a matter of stewardship. A steward is one who is entrusted with the care and management of another person’s property. Obviously, everything we possess actually belongs to God. That includes our body (1 Corinthians 6:19).

As Christian stewards, we must be trustworthy with our responsibilities (1 Corinthians 4:2). We prove our service through our sacrifice. “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,… Continue

AMERICA SINKS INTO GLUTTONY

In the land of the large, food has become almost like football.



Just ask Richard Shea, whose organization sponsors a regular circuit of fast-and-furious eating contests.



”Americans love that type of competition,” said Shea, president of the the New York-based International Federation of Competitive Eating.



But he denies that watching someone devour 15 burritos or 49 doughnuts in eight minutes is symptomatic of the overweight-and-out-of-shape epidemic that… Continue

How to Fight False Teachings

“Among you also there will be false teachers who will struggle in pernicious heresies. They will go so far as to deny the Master Who acquired them for His own, thereby bring on themselves swift disaster. Their lustful ways will lure many away. Through them, the true way will be made subject to contempt” (2 Pt 2:1-2).

“Let us, then, be children no longer, tossed here and there, carried about by every wind of doctrine that originates in human… Continue

Why You Should Avoid White Flour Products Such as White Breads and Pastas

In the manufacture of white flour, manufacturers first remove the wheat seed’s bran, its six outer layers, and the germ (or embryo) which contains 76% of the vitamins and minerals. 97% of the dietary fiber is also lost.



Then it gets even worse. What little is left is then bleached, preserved, and aged with chlorine dioxide. It is further whitened by adding chalk, alum, and ammonium carbonate to make it look and feel more improved and appealing to the consumer. An anti-salting agent… Continue

The Mission of the Church

The witness of a united church



The New Testament has a lot more to say about the kind of community the church ought to be before the world than it has to say about its mission to the world. However, Jesus made it abundantly plain that the reason he wanted his people to develop true community was “so that the world may believe” (John 17:21). This is his ultimate goal. There is no doubt that it is when the church most clearly lives out the gospel in the relationship of its members, it… Continue

THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL

The term ''Queen of Heaven'' is unknown to most people, and of those who have heard the term, few of them know who or what it refers to. Our intention here is to help you to understand the meaning of the term "Queen of Heaven" when you come across it in the Bible. This is a Satanic cult or practice that crept into many religions around the world, including some of the Christian churches.



Secular history and tradition tell us that "Nimrod" married a woman who was as evil and demonic… Continue

Should We Observe Religious Holy Days Such as Christmas, Easter, and Lent?

Denominations commonly observe and celebrate religious holidays in the name of Christianity and worship of Jesus Christ. What does the Bible teach about such holy days as Christmas, Easter, and Lent? Is their origin truly Christian? Should we participate in the observance and celebration of such days as part of the religion that Jesus revealed in the gospel?



Introduction:



Modern denominations, that claim to be Christian, observe various holy days in celebration of… Continue
