Not under Law

So many Christian brethren are confused about whether we are under the law or not. The BIBLE is very clear about the answer. “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under…

Not future but now

A common error in the translation of the Scriptures is to make many things mean sometime in the distant future when we die. Here is an example. Romans 6:8 (ASV) But if we died with Christ, we believe that we…

The purpose of the commandment

It is quite laughable to me that we could think that Paul is referring here to the old testament commandments producing these things in verse five. But so many in the church of Jesus Christ teach exactly that. They take this one verse out of it’s context because they see the word “commandment” and link it back to old testament law.

He Himself is our peace

We can make the simple choice to believe His word right here at this point. IN the midst of raging emotions and contrary circumstances you can simply stand on His promise stated clearly right here in Ephesians 2 and DECLARE OUT LOUD that I am brought near to God right now despite what my eyes, ears and emotions are telling me.

I believe therefore I speak

That missing ingredient I want to share is faith. And as I say to my wife faith is never divorced from words. If we believe we shall speak! In fact whatever we believe we shall speak of it. That may be good or bad for us.

Are you a “good” Christian

Are you a good Christian? What is a good Christian? Well most would say that a good Christian is someone whose life is patterned after Jesus Christ. They help the poor, they pray, they go to church regularly, they tithe to the Church, they give offerings to missions, they are good people. Is that it?

Established by the Gospel

We are living in dangerous times and the message of doom is always preached to us by the world. Impending disasters and wars, diseases, economic collapse, persecution, cataclysmic weather events and seismic events all threaten us. In Bible days the young Church faced the same kinds of pressures and threats as we do today.
