  1. The Hope of Isarel   Open in New Window
    The Hope of Israel was the Apostle Paul's last dialogue with his Jewish kinsmen in the Book of Acts. Some theologians find it problematic that Luke ends the Book in a way that may seem abrupt but we must again remember the purpose of the Book. The goal is to trace the expanse of the Gospel from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth. Since Rome represents that far away place, we can understand why it should end here in this city. by Brian Evans, M.A., B.A., Th.D., M.Div.

  2. The Hope of Israel   Open in New Window
    Study on the The Hope of Israel, with an examination of Dispensationalism and the Scofield Bible. 'For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you and to speak with you; because that for the Hope of Israel I am bound with this chain. Acts 28:20.' Was Paul then bound with chains and sent to Rome for trial because he proclaimed and taught an earthly kingdom for the Jews? Not at all. Paul deermined the Scriptures, the hope of the promise of God made to the fathers of the hope of Israel to come was realized in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (Acts 26:6-8). by Philip Mauro

  3. The Mother of Godís Children   Open in New Window
    If God is your father, then who is your mother? No one, you say? Well, God tells us something different in Galatians 4:26 'But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is the mother of us all.' So then, the Jerusalem that is above is the mother of God's children. But what is the Jerusalem that is above? In short, this Jerusalem is the bride of our Lord, and the bride of our Lord is the church. This Jerusalem, this bride is a heavenly reality, but it manifests itself on earth in the visible church. by Larry Wilson

  4. The New Covenant   Open in New Window
    If all we had was the Old Testament we would all be Dispensationlists. Since they are caught up in the earthly significance of the nation Israel, they place a restoration of that nation in a future millennium, and the entire body of such is stamped primarily with the word "earthly." When we have the New Testament explanation, we see the truth as the word "spiritually" is emphasized. by Pastor Doyle D. Dewberry

  5. Feminist Infiltration and the Emasculation of Christian Men   Open in New Window
    Men are frequently portrayed as bumbling incompetents as fathers, husbands, and employees. We see women wearing the pants in the family and treating their husbands like an extra child, and we see men who respond in kind: acting like children, obeying their wivesí commands, and, often, indulging in hours of childish pastimes, like video games, instead of working hard and caring for their families. Itís not Father Knows Best anymore. Itís Fatherís a Moronic Buffoon to Kick Around. by Michelle Lesley

  6. Jephthah's Rash Vow   Open in New Window
    Judges 11:21-40 - There are some stories in Scripture that present us with challenging questions, often because they come from a world and a culture far removed from our own, and because we have certain ideas about Scripture that prevent us from hearing the stories in that context. We are supposed to recoil from the monstrosity of Jephthahís actions. The later community of Israel who included this story in the biblical traditions knew how wrong child sacrifice was, so there would be no mistaking this for a model of right behavior. by Dennis Bratcher

  7. Christian Faith in an Age of Cynicism   Open in New Window
    Psalm 4:6-8 - The Dictionary says a 'cynic' is a person who 'expects and believes the worst about people, their motives, or the outcome of events.' Cynicism, then, is the habit or mind set of believing the worst about people and life. I would suggest thgat this is what David has in mind in Psalms 4:6 when he says, 'Many are asking, Who can show us any good?' -by Rev. Ray Murray

  8. Reformed or Reforming?   Open in New Window
    Which is itóreformed or reforming? The church is at its best when it is both. 'Reformed' illustrates that there is something fixed and unchanging about who we are because we serve a God who has given us his infallible, sufficient Word. 'Reforming,' on the other hand, suggests that we recognize that we are fallible in interpreting that Word. by Gregory Edward Reynolds

  9. The Miracle of Elisha and the Floating Axe Head   Open in New Window
    The question is often asked of me, 'what is the significance of the floating axe head?' Was it just to show that Elisha did great miracles by the power of God? Was it to demonstrate that God cares about His people being in debt? The fact is, this sign or miracle is God breathed in all its elements because God wants us to consider it as a token or signification of something far more important than literal iron floating on water. The floating axe head, and indeed the pattern of all Godís miracles recorded in Scripture, always have some deeper spiritual meaning to them. by Tony Warren

  10. The Text Says Jesus 'Loved' The Rich Young Ruler   Open in New Window
    Mark 10:17-22, the story of the rich young ruler, is a bellwether text for measuring just how literally we are willing to take the Bible. There is no hint that Jesus finds the rich young ruler to be unlikable or an unrepentant sinner. And it would take an awful lot of reading into the text of Mark 10:18 to suggest that the rich young ruler has a high opinion of himself rather than Jesus. by Dr. Eric Foley

  11. 7 Problems with Christian Opposition to Inerrancy   Open in New Window
    Kyle Roberts, a theologian at United Theological Seminary has written a article entitled 'Seven Problems with Inerrancy.' Roberts is an example of a growing number of theologians who argue that we should reject the belief that Scripture is inerrant. In this response, I will point out seven problems with Robertsís position.by Robert Bowman

  12. I Donít Love to Pray, But I Want To   Open in New Window
    Sweet hour of prayer. With such I hasten to the place where God my Savior shows his face and gladly take my station and wait for thee. But letís be honest here. Prayer is not always bliss. We donít hasten to it gladly. We donít pray for an hour. We donít even know what to pray for. But as we grow in the discipline of prayer, it can be a rich experience of sharing our heart with God. By William Boekestein

  13. The Writing's On The Wall   Open in New Window
    Belshazzar knew about the one true God! He had been given opportunity to turn and submit to the one true God. Belshazzar was not ignorant concerning God, he was arrogant concerning God! And he expresses his arrogance by the specific form of sacrilege we read here in this chapter - by drinking from the sacred cups of God's temple and at the same time praising the pagan gods of Babylon. Thou Art Weighed in the Balances, and Art Found Wanting. by John De Hoog

  14. Thou Art Weighed in the Balances, and Art Found Wanting   Open in New Window
    TEKEL - Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. this story affords an instructive, admonitory lesson to us all; for though we have not, like Belshazzar, profaned the consecrated vessels of the Lord, or praised the gods of the heathen, who are vanity and a lie, yet we have in various ways insulted and sinned against our Creator and provoked him to jealousy. by Edward Payson

  15. Examining Premillennialism   Open in New Window
    There is no support for the theory of premillennialism. There is no actual sound support in the book of Revelation, nor elsewhere else in the Bible. It certainly is difficult to abandon a theory that has been entertained by so many, but when one discovers that a religious view is false, he should reject it in deference to truth. by Wayne Jackson

  16. Who is Michael the Archangel? Ė A Study   Open in New Window
    We can see clearly from Scripture that Michael is none other than Jesus Christ. In various times He has appeared as companion or as the messenger of the Lord, and has been by the side of His people. He has in times past veiled His divinity and appeared in the form of a messenger to deliver God's message to God's people.

  17. A Woman's Right To Preach: Is It Biblical?   Open in New Window
    The role of women with respect to teaching and preaching in the local church has long been a topic of discussion and debate, with views ranging from her full involvement to total prohibition. The contemporary trend is toward equal ministry roles for men and women, as evidenced by the ever-increasing number of women attending seminaries and being ordained to the pastorate. Is this Biblical? by Dennis McBride

  18. Faith and Works: Paul vs. James   Open in New Window
    One of the thorniest textual problems any Christian can face is the apparent contradiction between Paul and James. Is justification by faith, as Paul claims, or by works, as James seems to say? This problem actually has a very simple solution. Evidential justification illustrating that faith produces works. by Greg Koukl

  19. Seeing Christ in All of Scripture   Open in New Window
    [PDF - Adobe Acrobat]
    e-book - As true heir of Old Princeton, Westminster Theological Seminary has borne the torch of Reformed theological inquiry and pedagogy like no other North American seminary. I am also glad to see that this book clearly explains and rejects alter-native approaches that deny the complete truthfulness of Scripture and that are inconsistent with the legacy of faithful commitment to Scripture that has marked Westminster Theological Seminary since its founding.

  20. Sovereign Grace and Man's Responsibility   Open in New Window
    That God predestines, and that man is responsible, are two things that few can see. They are believed to be inconsistent and contradictory; but they are not. It is just the fault of our weak judgment. Two truths cannot be contradictory to each other. Where I separate from the truth, cast my words away. But if what I say be God's teaching, I charge you, by him that sent me, give these things your thoughts, and turn unto the Lord with all your hearts. by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
