Deceiving Standards

Truth is best defined as “fidelity to a standard” meaning that something is true if it matches the object that it is defined by.  God commanded the Israelites to have honest measures to weigh out quantities of foods for payment or sacrifice.  He commanded the weights to be exactly as said they were and not …

Sour Grapes and Sin

“Like Father Like Son” is a statement that we sometimes hear around our world today.  It is an unfair analogy and it unjustly hurts people whom are judged by a family member’s conduct.  It happened to me in high school.  I, like my brother, played in various band courses but in my tenth grade year …

Building the Tombs

History is in the eye of the beholder, and we can never say what we would do if we suddenly found ourselves generations past.  If we were in the time of Columbus, would we think that the earth was round or flat?  If we looked into Copernicus’s telescope and considered his model for the sun-centered …

Filthy Cups

Back in our youth, I spent a lot of weekends at my brothers house since he lived very close to where I worked and my working hours were all clumped in the weekends.  I usually earned my keep by cleaning the house which included tackling the dirty dishes…and I think I was the only person …

Twice the Son of Hell

As we live our life in awareness that we are here to spread the Gospel (Romans 10:14-15), we need to remember that faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).  This means that we should walk in faith, not putting our trust in a program or a …

The Holy Spirit is undoubtedly the most misunderstood part of the Godhead.  We forget that He is a person, has specific roles in the life of the Christian, and even that He is working when we do not directly see his work.  The Spirit supplements our conscience convicting us of God’s law.  John 14:26 says, …

As the Deer Pants

As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God? (Psalm 42:1-2) It is no secret that I dwell on the topic of professing Christians not reading the Bible, but why is …

Lessons from the Desert

When we think of a desert, we think of hot sun, dry weather, and no water; the vary place that you probably do not want to live in for the long term.  God sent the Israelites into the desert wilderness to test their strength.  Would they complain about the lack of water? Yep.  How about …

Praying For a Crop Failure

It is sad that in America today, many Christians are praying for crop failures. If we live our life seeking pleasure from things that are against the Word of God, and then we pray that the consequences of those actions will not happen, we are praying for a crop failure. One author has said, “Many …

Resolve to Read the Word

Jesus is king, Lord of lords. We should attend church and preach the Gospel; we all know that we should always be telling all our friends about Jesus and inviting everyone to church and religious social events. The Bible says so, right? Maybe, or maybe not. According to Barna Research Group and American Bible, 81% …
