God's Word; Accept Or Reject?
Contributed on Apr 14, 2023
Why is it so important that we accept God's Word as written?

The world always needs much good work. We Christians are honored, called, and ...read more
Confidence In The Word Of God
Contributed on Apr 14, 2023
Jesus used the Word of God to testify about truth; how about us?
open your Bibles to Mark 12…… Take a quick look again at v12…… Eventually, Jesus was crucified on a cross, but sadly, many missed the point of Jesus being a sacrifice for man’s sin as planned by God. I pray that all of you never miss the point of why Jesus died. This is one of the reasons why we ...read more
Why Does God Allow Sin?
Contributed on Oct 11, 2022

God Provides Paradise!
Contributed on Oct 10, 2022
God is good all the time and so what God provides is always good including all His commands!
In general, how would you define “paradise”?? The first man and woman lived in paradise. Please open your Bibles to Genesis 2, page 2 of our red church Bibles. Read along with me verses 7-16………. These verses talk about man. But again, in context, man in this passage can refer to both male and ...read more

How do we see work compared to how God sees work??
Open your Bibles to Genesis 2, page 2 of our red church Bibles. Genesis 2:1-2………. God worked for 6 days and on the 7th day He rested.

Misusing The Image Of God
Contributed on Nov 27, 2022
Genesis 11:1-9… v1: as Noah and his family continues life from the ark (likely they had other children) A couple of things in context helps us: Genesis 10 talks about the nations of people and their own languages Gen 10:24 on – we only read about Joktan’s sons, not Peleg’s Gen 11:10 – only 2 ...read more
