  1. Narcissism and the War on Truth   Open in New Window
    We live in the age of rampant truth distortion. In politics, itís called "spin." In advertising, itís called fair marketing strategy. Deceptive verbiage and misleading claims are made all the time. There are so many ways to deceive. As Christians we should have the utmost reverence for the truth for it can truly set you free. We must be ever mindful of humankindís incredible capacity to deceive, including oneself. by Dr. George Simon

  2. Kicking Against The Pricks   Open in New Window
    Let me say to thee, sinner, yield thy heart to the goadings of divine love, for 'it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.' Oh, think not that the Saviourís blood will be unable to cleanse thee. Not thy worthiness, but thine unworthiness attracts his attention; not thy strength, but thy weakness; not thy riches, but thy poverty. by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

  3. Who Are The 24 Elders Of Revelation   Open in New Window
    Who are the twenty-four elders in Revelation 4:4 who are seated around the throne of God? What do the 24 elders represent? Are they representatives of the 12 tribes of Israel and the 12 apostles? Hasn't our God translated us into Christ's heavenly kingdom, and don't we live and reign with Him in spirit. Do we not sit with Christ in heavenly places as we have been translated into His kingdom concerning state of being, nature, and even principality? by Tony Warren

  4. The Revelation of God's Wrath   Open in New Window
    The terror of God is emphatically the wrath of God, and is revealed from heaven as the constant reaction of His holiness against all that refuses to seek and acknowledge Him as the highest good. It becomes active in the will and the power to curse. The wrath of God is not a sudden, passing passion. God's wrath is constant. It never changes, increases or decreases. God's wrath is as constant as His holiness. by Herman Hoeksema

  5. Herman Hoeksema and the ĎFlag in Churchí Controversy   Open in New Window
    A serious reviling and persecution of the Reverend Herman Hoeksema occured during the ĎFlag in the Churchí controversy that demonstrated vividly how politics and nationalism in the church illustrated the need for the separation of church and state. Though the enmity for His stance was strong and often unfounded, unjust and vitriolistic, Hoeksema was later vindicated as much of the church recognized the myopia and challenged this mixing of God and country. by Robert P. Swierenga

  6. The Christian Memorial Day   Open in New Window
    Every year in the United States of America, on the last Monday of May, Americanís pause to reflect on and remember the lives of those who have given their lives in the line of military duty. Thinking about this led me to think about another memorial day that is distinctly and uniquely Christian: the Lordís Day. by Tony Arsenal

  7. Does Reformed Theology Impede Racial Reconciliation?   Open in New Window
    Doctrine by itself is not a sufficient dam against the currents of sin that flow in the human heart. Reformed theology is wonderfully, positively explosive in its true implications for overcoming racial hostility. Racial harmony and unity and love and respect and delight cost Jesus his life. Let there be an empathetic effort in our churches to know and understand the past and present streams that feed the river of present tension. Letís not live with our head in the sand. by John Piper

  8. What is the Serpent Seed doctrine?   Open in New Window
    The serpent seed doctrine is a belief based on poor biblical interpretation and superstition. It is a primary doctrinal resource for those who want to use Scriptures to justify racial prejudice. The serpent seed doctrine is also closely related to other erroneous beliefs such as the Christian Identity Movement and the Kenite doctrine. by Got-Questions

  9. The Necessity of Grace - Man's Total Depravity   Open in New Window
    We are living in an age in which man has been elevated and God has been dethroned in the minds of many. The world around us has denounced the biblical teaching that man is a fallen creature who is inherently evil due to the sin of the first man, Adam. This false concept, sadly to say, is even held by many so called evangelists. By Mike Krall

  10. Reasons for Christian Education   Open in New Window
    Some people may wonder, why would Christians be interested in starting their own schools when public education is free and available to all? Christian education to a degree protects children from many of the excesses that abound in our society. It is a fact that Christian education generally produces better results and with Christian education the Bible can be freely taught. But the most compelling reason for Christian education is that with Christian education children are exposed to a Christian worldview. by Scott A. Leone

  11. Knowing Our Enemies   Open in New Window
    Friendship Of The World Is Enmity With God. Friendliness and friendship are not the same. While there can be no friendship without friendliness, there can be friendliness without friendship. Friendliness is a characteristic and friendship is a relationship. Be friends with Godís friends, and none other. But be friendly to all but friendship is the dangeróthe real and great danger. We may not be friends with the world because friends live in a relationship in which their hearts are joined and they walk together in communion. by Rev. Huizinga

  12. Worldliness - A Perennial Danger   Open in New Window
    Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. worldliness has nothing to do with having a computer, car or modern conveniences. These things are simply the gifts of God that can be used for good or for evil. John warned about worldliness in the first century long before computers, cars, or modern conveniences. John explains the meaning when he adds neither the things that are in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. by Martyn McGeown

  13. Friendship Of The World Is Enmity With God   Open in New Window
    Let it be known that the friendship of the world is enmity with God. Whosoever will be the friend of the world is the enemy of God. There is a basic principle that underlies this teaching of God's Word: when two are enemies of each other, one can not be the friend of both. This is not very difficult to understand. Friendship with the world implies that in your heart you have essentially long after the world rather than after the living God. And it requires that you join with the world in its opposition to the living God. by James D. Slopsema

  14. An Overview of the Study of Imprecatory Psalms   Open in New Window
    Love your enemy? Reformed and Evangelical Approaches to the Interpretation of Imprecatory Psalms. The book of the Psalms is one of the most read and most popular books of the Bible in the church. It is often used for devotional readings in the life of the church and believers. Despite its popularity, the study of the Psalter is problematic in academic circles because of the numerous questions surrounding authorship, setting, composition, and interpretation. by Daniel Simango and P. Paul KrŁger

  15. Is Christmas Scriptural?   Open in New Window
    I do not think that the strictest Reformer ever questioned the right of an individual to celebrate the birth of Christ at a time?and in a godly manner?of his own choosing. I certainly do not question this right. If you want to exchange gifts, or read Luke 2, or sing "Silent Night" on December 25, then I have no quarrel with you at all. What I ask in return is that you will not quarrel with me when I stand with the great Reformers. by G. I. Williamson

  16. Should Christians Celebrate Christmas?   Open in New Window
    "Should Christians celebrate Christmas?" or, "How should a Christian celebrate Christmas?" These are questions of concern for many sincere believers. In fact, many believers dislike the season and have refused to celebrate it at all. A number of reasons are given, and while I might agree with some of their concerns and some of the reasons offered against the observance of Christmas, I would not necessarily agree with their conclusions. by Bible.org

  17. Are Dreams And Visions For Today   Open in New Window
    Does God still bring His divine revalations to His people today through dreams and visions? Is it established in the book of Joel that dreams and visions are to be a common part of the Spirit-filled Christian's experience? When we examine the Bible carefully, we can plainly see that revelatory dreams and visions were God speaking directly to mankind establishing His holy word and prophecy. So should we expect God to speak His word to us this way today when the fully furbished written word has been completed? by Tony Warren

  18. We White Christian Evangelicals Are Our Own Worst Enemy   Open in New Window
    Are Christians their our own worst enemy? Have we convinced ourselves to live lives of fear instead of love? When Christians have reached a place where they think that itís a matter of major theological principle not to sell pastries to sinners, but are willing to give accused pedophiles like Roy Moore a pass, I think itís safe to say that American Christianity today, and white American Christianity in particular, is in a pretty sorry state. by Charles Matthews

  19. The Charismatic Movement - The Gifts have Ceased   Open in New Window
    There is a most unwelcome tree growing in the garden of the professing church. Since the 1960s this tree has experienced phenomenal growth, and has now spread so profusely that there is hardly a corner to which its rapidly extending branches have not reached. Wherever it goes, it casts a dark shadow over vital Biblical Christianity. This is the tree of the charismatic movement, that section of Christendom which insists on the continuance today of the the gifts of miracles recorded in the New Testament. By Rev. Keith Watkins

  20. What Is Salvation?   Open in New Window
    What is Salvation? Salvation is our reconciliation and involves the peace between God and man which was purchased by the death of His Son. Like the atonement in particular, salvation in general has many different pictures which Scripture uses. Salvation is a vast doctrine which many different nuances. In Salvation we have been reconciled, justified and redeemed by the propitiatory, substitutionary death of the Son of God. by Geof Ashley
