One of the greatest hindrances to internal peace which the Christian encounters is the common habit of dividing our lives into two areas, the sacred and the secular. As the seas are conceived to exist apart from each other and to be morally and spiritually incompatible, and as we are compelled by the necessities of living to be always crossing back and forth from the one to the other, our inner lives tend to break up so that we live a divided instead of a unified life. Our trouble springs from the fact that […]

Question:Over the last few days there have been quite a few commercials paid for by the Mormons that try to get people to believe that we are all going to RETURN to our home (HEAVEN) when we die. The person speaking states that the SCRIPTURES tell us that we were all residents of Heaven before we were born into this life and so when we die we are just returning to our original Home. Do you know of any scripture that supports this claim? Answer:No, there are no truly GOD-GIVEN Scriptures to support this idea. It is distinctly false and unBiblical as are many other peculiar Mormon doctrines which the average Mormon will say “we don’t teach that!” (ie. baptism for the dead; holy underwear; […]
James 1:22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. (NKJV) Find out what God has to say. And change your life accordingly.That could pretty much sum up the committed Christian life. Bible study that doesn’t change your life is just academic exercise. Prayer that doesn’t change your life is just a mental ritual. The Christian walk is dedicating our life to learning the Truth of God, and changing our life to agree with that Truth.Today there is no end of Christian books, writing, teaching, programming and activity. We can “seminar” and “conference” ourselves into oblivion. There is no shortage of dynamic, captivating preacher and speakers. We are at all time high of leaving church “feeling good” about God. Is there […]
A Reader Asks: Can you tell me what the Bible means when it says women “shall be saved by childbearing”?
Question:Can you tell me what the Bible means when it says women “shall be saved by childbearing”? Answer:The verse referred to in the question is 1Timothy 2.15:Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety. Remember, the Bible is unique in that it interprets itself. Being God’s Word, it cannot (and never) contradicts itself. For this verse, it’s helpful to rule out first what it CAN NOT mean.It CAN NOT mean that a woman receives eternal salvation by having children. This contradicts the most basic and core essentials of Christianity in that salvation is found through nothing else, and by no one else, except faith in the atoning sacrifice of the Person of Jesus Christ.The actual […]
(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Jude 20 But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, (NKJV) Today we are going to look at verses 3-11. Keep in mind the overall point of Jude’s letter: false teachers in the Church.Jude 3-4 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord […]
Here is an exact question submitted to me today: I have a little problem on my career at 34, i dont know hw to move forward , coz have tried my best in dfferent areas. what can i do? There are a LOT of success/advice people today that take the arrogant, elitist, everyone-else-are-losers approach when answering questions or giving advice. It’s become fashionable to talk down to people and declare yourself above the riff-raff and failures of the great masses. Please. Before the self-esteem, positive thinking success-guru era, we used to call that PRIDE and arrogance. However, there times when direct answers are needed, and sugar coating does no one any good. This is one of those times. This question represents FAR TOO MANY people today. Lazy, uneducated, […]
NOTE: For a couple of years I’ve been writing a book of prayers… here’s a new one from today for however it might bless you. Brent Teach Me God & Father, Teach me to know that if Jesus Christ has satisfied all the requirements of your divine justice, He can easily rescue me from my sinfulness. Teach me that Jesus doesn’t want to see me living in my own strength and fragile self-confidence, But rather living fully justified and empowered by the Spirit to a life of victorious obedience. Teach me that the Spirit of God and His power are mine because of what Christ accomplished on my behalf; That the Spirit within me satisfies the Law without. Teach me to thank You for every […]
