Winning the Battle

Battle for the mind

Do you struggle in your Christian walk? Do you get discouraged because you see the great difference between your character and the character of Christ? Do you feel that you can never “win” the battle? Recognizing our sinfulness is a good sign, because it demonstrates that we have some understanding of the beauty of Christ’s … [Click to read more …]

Sabbath – The Reminder of the Evidence
avatar

maxwell01

Andrew Legall recommended this video, writing that “it changed my view of the Sabbath radically.” This conversation was recorded 30 years ago by the late Graham Maxwell, professor of New Testament studies at Loma Linda University, and Louis Venden of the PUC church. It is from a series of Friday evening programs called, “Conversations About God.” If … [Click to read more …]

Would Jesus hang out with homosexuals? Is there a way we can know?1 We know that Jesus associated with the outcasts of his day. Luke 15:1-2 is very clear that he not only associated with tax collectors and sinners, he ate with them. He went to their dinner parties (Matt 11: 19) to such an … [Click to read more …]

History is full of the stories of great people who have had a monumental influence on the history of their church, their country or the world. But what about ordinary people – people like you and me? Most of us probably know at least intellectually that Christ would have died for just one sinner – … [Click to read more …]

I remember Lizzie amazing me with her ability to do most of what I could do as well as I could or better. She could plant, cultivate and harvest a garden, she could cook and bake bread, she could sew – all without a right arm. But if Jesus had offered to give her a right … [Click to read more …]

How Did the Boy Jesus Learn the Scriptures?

Since this interesting question came up in our comments, I did a little research. And it leads me to conclude that the contemporaries of Christ were far more literate than we like to give them credit for. Now I’m not an expert in history or biblical languages, nor a mathematician, but I’m thinking that we … [Click to read more …]

Do You Pay Tithe?

Tithe and offerings

Should you pay tithe? I don’t think so. I think paying tithe is a heathen practice. (Please stay with me to the end.) Here’s why: Paying tithe presupposes that I have goods or money that I wish to exchange for goods or services. Paying something (offering) to a deity in exchange for grace or favor … [Click to read more …]

God’s Law: The One, the Two, the Ten and the Many
avatar

law

Law isn’t very popular in our society – especially moral law. Doing your “own thing” is promoted in popular media and commercials. Postmodern culture is allergic to absolutes, and laws are absolutes. Law even seems to have a bad reputation in Christian circles. After all, Paul said that the Law is no longer needed after … [Click to read more …]

Conformity, Compromise and the Heart
avatar

My Bible reading this week included 1 Kings 3:1-15, which tells the story of the beginning of Solomon’s reign — and compromise. 1 Kings 3:1 tells of his marriage to Pharaoh’s daughter, a compromise conforming to the customs of the day. 1 Kings 3:3 tells us that “Solomon loved the Lord, walking in the statutes … [Click to read more …]
