“Do not come any closer, God said. Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Exodus 3:5, NIV

The opening chapters of the book of Exodus represent a low point in the history of God’s people. From calling upon the name of the Lord in the early chapters of Genesis, they had come, after 400 years in Egypt, to the point where many had adopted the customs and patterns of worship of the Egyptians.

When Does the Result Justify the Means?
avatar

Some Bible stories seem to indicate that God’s will was done by ignoring one or more of His commandments. What does this say to us? I would like our readers to suggest some answers.

In response to the lesson plan for “Two Classes of Worshipers,” one of our readers concluded (in an unpublished comment)  that “God is not such a rigid leader as we make Him out to be.” Perhaps he’s right. Perhaps God isn’t nearly as “rigid” as we make [...]

Deuteronomy 6:4 in Hebrew

Deuteronomy 6:4 in Hebrew

The question of how to properly speak and write God’s name frequently comes up. To answer that question, we first have to determine what God’s name is. It is not “God,” or “Lord,” or “Jehovah.” These are what we would call titles not names. God’s name is “YHWH.”  Because the Hebrews considered God’s name too sacred to pronounce, they substituted the word “LORD.” As a result its actual pronunciation has been lost over the centuries. In [...]

The Second Coming – Fundamental Belief 25
avatar

The second coming of Christ is the blessed hope of the church, the grand climax of the gospel. The Saviour’s coming will be literal, personal, visible, and worldwide. When He returns, the righteous dead will be resurrected, and together with the righteous living will be glorified and taken to heaven, but the unrighteous will die. The almost complete fulfillment of most lines of prophecy, together with the present condition of the world, indicates that Christ’s coming is imminent. The time [...]
