How does a mother build biblical truth into her daughter’s life, nurture her, guard her, and encourage her toward the application of that truth, then send her into an environment that will oftentimes by its very nature be hostile or at least ambivalent toward that truth? How does a father raise his son to respect […]
Why is it that today’s “prophets” always tell you about their visions after the events occur and never before? In the following case, Jim Bakker tells viewers on August 12, 2011, that he predicted 9/11. He was only a decade late in mentioning it. HT: Slaughter of the Sheep
Christ’s death is the Christian’s life. Christ’s cross is the Christian’s title to heaven. Christ “lifted up” and put to shame on Calvary is the ladder by which Christians “enter into the holiest,” and are at length landed in glory. It is true that we are sinners–but Christ has suffered for us. It is […]
Paul Washer pulls no punches as he exhorts the church to evangelize youth the biblical way. Some of the things Washer says in this sermon, Reforming Modern Youth Evangelism and Discipleship, may surprise you. I encourage all youth evangelists, preachers, and pastors to listen to this message with an open mind; leaving your preconceived notions […]
Well, the Muslims are at it again. Once again, they prove to the world that they are NOT the peace-loving people they claim to be. Their arrogance and hatred of Israel and Christians is shown clearly in recent news. Our government is wrong for allowing the Iranian president to come to this country to use […]
What really happens when one is born again? If all one does is consider what is seen and felt, one will conclude that one is born again by choosing Christ or accepting Him. But there is an unseen, spiritual reality described in the Bible – that man is born of the flesh dead spiritually, unable […]
The origin of the Book of Mormon is a fascinating subject as there is clear evidence that its source was not divine, but was actually conjured up in the imagination of Joseph Smith, inspired by similar stories circulating around his time. It’s precisely because the Book of Mormon was drafted by Joseph Smith (a “poor […]
“If the Devil comes to my door with his horns visible, I will never let him in; but if he comes with his hat on as a respectable gentlemen, he is admitted at once.” From a sermon by Charles Haddon Spurgeon entitled “The Snare of the Fowler” – C. H. Spurgeon 1834 – 1892

If you listen to most within America’s ‘Evangelical’ community, the way to battle wickedness is to be relevant with the culture, or to put conservatives in office that will enforce laws on the wicked and make them do right, taking back the nation for Christ. However, the true follower of Christ knows none of these […]

What Vine are you Abiding In? (Part 2) Please take some time and read What Vine are you Abiding In? (Part 1). In Part 1, we looked at the context and background for our passage John 15:1-11 and Jesus’ teaching regarding the vine and the branches. We also had to face the tough question: “What […]
Your sermon of the week is a great one by R.W. Glenn entitled The Absurdity of Injustice. This evangelistic-minded message from passages in Ecclesiastes is one that you don’t want to miss. In fact, I enjoyed it so much I listened to it twice.
As our family continues down the road, I never cease to be amazed at those who tell us, “Oh, I could never do what you are doing!” Or, they may comment, “Lord bless you, but that type of work is definitely not for me!” Similar phrases normally revolve around the lack of amenities that are […]
I watched this from sermonindex, do watch and pray for the reverence and fear of the Lord to fill the earth…
The Stranger (Author Unknown) A few months before I was born, my dad met a stranger who was new to our small town. From the beginning, dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer, and soon invited him to live with our family. The stranger was quickly accepted and was around to welcome me into the […]
Your sermon of the week is on the subject of Hell in the sobering message The Rich Man and Lazarus by John MacArthur. This sermon is a follow-up to this previous message by MacArthur. I encourage you to listen to them both.
One of my favorite passages in scripture is Jesus’ teaching on the vine and the branches. Let’s look at what it means for Christ to be the vine and for the believer to be the branch. John 15:1-11 15:1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in me […]
If you want to purchase the Islamic Koran you can now turn to the nation’s leading Christian bookselling website. That’s right, you can now buy the Koran from Christian Book Distributors (CBD). And CBD is even encouraging the mass distribution of this book (that fuels the terrorism that’s raging around the world and which calls […]
Here’s an article by Chris Dunn on his recent experience of visiting a megachurch. It’s not pretty. Last Sunday I went to a megachurch. Normally I attend small churches with a gathering of local believers who strive to live according to the Bible. Having already attended countless churches from many denominations and faiths, I was […]
Recently, I entered into an internet conversation on the purpose of the church. Dangerous territory, I know, but fools run in where angels fear to tread. The conversation started by the posting of an article about a “church” known as “The Crossing” that some people were beginning to fear was taking on a cult-like appearance. […]
We who home educate, oppose youth ministries, believe Christians should dress modestly, etc. are often accused of believing this way of life makes one a Christian and makes one holy. And of course, we deny those baseless charges of “legalism” but nevertheless, the accusations are still hurled at us. This is why I’m pleased to […]
With this current economic downturn, I have been unfaithful in my giving for the advancement of the kingdom of God. I blamed this unfaithfulness on my low wage as well as rising gas & food prices. I am in grievous sin; this was made very clear to me last night as I read this short […]
Yesterday, a terrible tragedy struck Northern Nevada. Many of you have probably seen the news about a man who fired on several people, ultimately killing four of them, before taking his own life. Five of the people who were shot were Nevada Army National Guardsman, three of which died. Many find themselves utterly dumbfounded by […]
This last Saturday was a major blessing for our family as we had the privilege of meeting a brother and sister in Christ who live in Western Colorado. We met first at a restaurant and then were invited to their home where they unveiled to us a series of devices that will allow us to […]
Classic! You can purchase a similar version of this bumper sticker here, and you can read a blistering article on the foolishness of the Coexist sticker here. HT: 4 Simpsons
Never are men’s hearts in such a hopeless condition, as when they are not sensible of their own sins. He that would not make shipwreck on this rock, must beware of measuring himself by his neighbors. What does it signify that we are more moral than other men? We are all vile and imperfect in […]
This is from Charles Spurgeon’s ‘Confession and Absolution’ preached on October 3rd, 1858… What did he confess? He confessed, as our text tells us that he was a sinner. Now, how suitable is this prayer for us! For is there a lip here present that this confession will not suit—”God be merciful to me a […]
Kind of an odd question, right? If you are a Christian, you worship God. Ministry is what you do in service to God. So how can you worship it? Let me explain by giving you a picture of my life, and how God has shown me where my worship lies. I am a full time […]
