The method being used today to persuade believers to be kind, understanding, charitable, etc. is by reasoning with them, but the Bible teaches that these things are ours in Jesus.
- Is Monday Now The First Day Of The Week?
Monday, the day named after the moon, is the first day of week according to non-Christians and even to some Christians. The relentless secularisation of Western society combined with the ascendency of business and commercial interests makes this almost inevitable. But where do Christians stand in all of this day shuffling?
- Trouble Or Opportunity?
We have been led to think, though advertising, modern technology and appliances, and automation that we should have instant gratification and a life of ease. It is a deception from the enemy. God says we will have much trouble.
- Is Rain A Bad Thing?
Today even Christians think of rain as the bad things that happen. They say, "You know, God sends the rain as well as the sunshine. Or into everyone's life a little rain must fall." In truth, when Jesus said, "God sends the rain on the unjust as well as the just," He was talking about a blessing.

In this article author Louis Lapides discusses the biblical identity of the seed of Abraham in the first part of several articles on the subject.

- Does The Christian View Of God Need Revising?
If you have a faulty view of God, then you'll end up with a liberal, confusing theology. This is the problem we've witnessed in Rob Bell's book, Love Wins. In today's article author Louis Lapides examines Rob Bell's erroneous view of God that portrays the Lord as a bi-polar deity.

The great dilemma was how to fill the great gulf that separated God and man. The magnificence of his beauty and the glorious sight of his face was enough to kill a man.
- Setting The Record Straight
We have not been given Jesus in order to be excused from obeying the Word. We have been given Jesus so we can carry out the Word. Just quit looking at mankindís frailties and look to Godís greatness. Quit using mankindís shortcomings as an excuse for sinning and messing up. Use the power of Christ within you to overcome them.

Jesus represented the word. Whatever Jesus did the word will do. Any word of God that you believe and speak will do just what Jesus did become physical. Mary didn't just bring forth a son but a manifestation of the word.
- The Blood Of The Lamb
When the devil torments a Christian about their past, they need to understand the power of Jesusí blood. It completely null and voids the transgression--as if they had never done it. The believer must know and understand that Jesusí blood is that powerful. For a Christian to allow their self to be unsettled about their past sins is a to make His blood sacrifice a small thing.
There are people who definitely are a hopeless case. Their stupidity is beyond repair.
- Why Do Christians Suffer?
Why do Christians get sick and suffer need? Can they not pray and see God deliver them?
- Are You Already In Hell?
Hell is not a comfortable teaching to share with others. Yet the Word of God puts the focus on what God has done to save us from hell. Unfortunately, Rob Bell, author of Love Wins, fails to perceive the Gospel of the New Testament
- Wondering What Happned At The Cross?
The wearing of the cross by celebrities and their imitators as seen in tattoos and jewelry has created too much of a familiarity with the instrument upon which Jesus died. In Pastor Rob Bellís book Love Wins, his aim is to sift through the familiarity of the cross and get to the truth about what took place when Jesus died. However, as Bell goes deeper into what he believes about the cross, we find he has placed himself outside the bounds of traditional Christianity.
