• What strides can the church and ministers take to demonstrate the relevance of a Gospel message that has spanned all of existence since the time of creation, to the current world of today?
by L. S. Walker – The Doctrine of Church Discipline is founded on the emphatic Word of God. Undisciplined churches are robbed of their power to witness effectively for the Lord, because of sin, in their membership. In this they are severing their fellowship with their Lord. God cannot, He will not, bless a church in sin.
By H. C. Vanderpool – While living in Louisville, Kentucky I was privileged to meet Col. Harlan Sanders and discuss with him his spiritual condition. He told me he was a Christian and how wonderfully God had blessed him. In addition to his conversation with me, he gave some of the experiences of his life and his Christian experience
by Pastor Tim – Is man twofold or a threefold being? Are soul and spirit one and the same or should we distinguish between them? This article will examine both theories and try to answer some of these questions. The twofold theory is called Dichotomy and the threefold theory is called Trichotomy.
by Pastor Tim – Baptist growth accelerated in the 18th century largely as a result of the movement known as the Great Awakening. In the 19th century the Baptists, like most other Protestant denominations, split over the issue of slavery. This led to the formation of the Southern Baptist Convention in 1845.
by Pastor Tim – Restoring the Biblical practice of self-examination and self-awareness should take center stage following the religious drift of the twentieth century. Many take for granted that their possession is equal to their profession. It’s time we push for a real heart probing search on the part of every professing Christian.
by Aaron Binion – Heaven is for Real best seller examined; The movie viewer has two options: Accept the kid’s trip as legitimate because the little boy says so, or practice discernment and compare what the kid says to the Bible to see if he’s right.
by Pastor Tim – The phrases “kingdom of God” and “kingdom of heaven” are troublesome and controversial subjects in the twentieth century. Controversy and confusion stems from a wrong kingdom theology that has produced a perverted concept of the second coming of Christ and has undermined Church authority.
by Pastor Tim – Scholars from the twentieth century disagree and view the whole Landmarkism movement very differently than nineteenth century scholars. There are four different areas of study that the scholars have developed through the years, and there are seven main works concerning Landmarkism
by Aaron Binion – Left Behind supporters say certain events are necessary for his second coming: the rebirth of national Israel, the rebuilding of the temple, one world currency, and the rise of the Anti-Christ. Left Behind teaches that Christians will vanish leaving behind their clothes, dentures, and airplane seats, while unsaved people will have no idea where they went.
by Pastor Tim – Circumstances have colored each century with unique forces that have shaped the life and work of the church down to the present. Cause and effect continues to shape us culturally and traditionally. Understanding this influence may serve us as a Spiritual compass preserving progress and preventing extremism.
The Christian religion as a power in the soul, redeeming and transforming it, is its own best evidence.
by J. M. Carroll – The Eternal Security Of All Blood Bought Believers; (I John 5:13). I press the point that believers now have “eternal life.” Not that they may have it, but they now have it.
by Judson Taylor (1856) – Liberalism has taken the place of Persecution. Persecution killed men, but prospered the cause; whilst Liberalism kills the cause by flattering men into compromises. Persecuted Truth has survived in all ages, but Compromised Truth never survives
by Pastor Tim – A Change in the Covenant is clearly expressed by calling it a ‘new,’ covenant (Heb 9:15), the ‘second’ covenant ( Heb 8:7), and a ‘better’ covenant (Heb 7:22 & Heb 9:16-17). However, only the nature of the covenant changed at the coming of the Lord and not the original promise.
