    DEAD TO SIN, REMADE IN CHRIST When Standard Oil Company began to refine petroleum, there was a black substance, a by-product, that no one knew what to do with. It was black, sticky, and stinky. It couldn’t be buried because it would just find its way to the surface again. It couldn’t be burned more

    CIRCUMCISE YOUR SIN Thousands of years ago, before Christ was even born, devout Jewish parents would practice rituals or customs when having a child. The first of the customs was that the child be circumcised; the cutting of the skin. This symbolized that you were a part of the family of more

  • The Deadly Disease Of Sin  PRO

    THE DEADLY DISEASE OF SIN The Bible is very blunt about sin – it doesn’t matter how YOU grade your sin, if you don’t accept that you’ve sinned… you can’t fix the problem. It’s like a man having a deadly disease. He experiencing distressing physical problems but doesn’t KNOW he’s going to die ... more

  • Dead To Garlic

    DEAD TO GARLIC The problem is we are so accustomed to sin we do not recognize it's gravity. I once read the news account of the two Lake Worth, Florida, high school boys. They were suspended from school because they ate so much garlic that no one could stand to have them around. They had read more

    “Why the Dead Sea?” We have heard of dead people, dead beasts, dead trees and dead flowers, but is there such a thing as a dead sea? There is and they call it dead because it receives all and gives nothing. This body of water – the most remarkable in the world – is at the southern end of the more

  • When Paul Speaks Of Being Dead To Sin, He's ...

    Contributed by David Baeder on Nov 8, 2008

    When Paul speaks of being dead to sin, he’s using a figure of speech. He is not referring to literal physical death. What does he mean? He means that sin is off limits. How many of you who are married can remember your wedding vows? When you got married did you pledge to “forsake all others”? more

    I have always loved blackberries. When I was a child, my grandmother would take me out blackberry picking so that she could make one of her famous blackberry cobblers.

    In 1665 the residents of London were dying by the thousands each day. The bubonic plague was spreading from house to house because of the unsanitary conditions. Rats and fleas spread the germs throughout the city. Almost 30,000 people died, almost a third of London’s population at the time. This more

    Contributed by Sermon Central on Jul 21, 2008

    UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT I am reminded of a story where a salesman was driving through town and became hungry. He saw a sign for a restaurant and parked his car and went in. The first thing he noticed was how dirty the windows were, and then he saw how dirty the table tops were. The waitresses were more

    Andrée Seu (pronounced, Ahn’-dray Soo) wrote about it in an article in World Magazine a couple of weeks ago: “I was accustomed to thinking of discouragement as something that happens to a person. But on closer examination…I have been taken aback by how volitional or ‘active’ it is. To go around more

    Contributed by Bobby Scobey on Mar 3, 2009

    John McArthur said, “We live in a culture that has elevated pride to the status of a virtue. Self-esteem, positive feelings, and personal dignity are what our society encourages people to seek. “At the same time, moral responsibility is being replaced by victimism, which teaches people to blame more

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Jun 2, 2009

    The apostle’s teaching is that life for the non-Christian is a living death. He is spiritually dead […] There is no stronger term than ‘death’. How categorical he is! You cannot say anything beyond saying that a man is dead. It is not ‘almost dead’, he is actually dead; it is not desperately ‘ill’, more

  • John Stott On Temptation

    Contributed by Christian Cheong on Oct 30, 2010

    JOHN STOTT ON TEMPTATION "The command to get rid of troublesome eyes, hands and feet is an example of our Lord’s use of dramatic figures of speech. What he was advocating was not a literal physical self-maiming, but a ruthless moral reject sinful practices so resolutely that we more

    based on 3 ratings

    DEAD IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS Several years ago a movie came out called “Death Becomes Her”. I don’t recommend it. It was dark humor at best, but the few funny parts weren’t worth the cost of the movie rental; much less, a theatre ticket. But the basic premise of the movie turns out to be a great more

    based on 125 ratings

    There used to be a show on cable television called, "Tales from the Darkside." The title sounds a little more sinister than the series really was, because I’m not one to watch scary movies and such. It was more like the old show, "The Twilight Zone." In one episode, there was an old man who more

  • Chuck Swindoll Wrote In His Book

    Chuck Swindoll wrote in his book "Salvation" – “If depravity were blue, we’d be blue all over. Cut us anywhere and we’ll bleed blue. Cut into our minds and you’ll find blue thoughts. Cut into our vision and there are blue images full of greed and lust. Cut into our hearts and there are blue more
