(Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Psalm 14:1 The fool has said in his heart, there is no God. We’ll finish up the series this week with five more common evidences for God’s existence, and some final closing thoughts.6 The Biological Argument.Life itself is powerful evidence for God. One of the most proven, and easily proven facts in the universe is that life can only come from life. This is an unquestioned given until you start to question the ORIGIN of life. Then men suddenly lose their minds and pretend that life came from NOTHING by CHANCE. How could something come from nothing? How could a rock come from nothing? How much more absurd is it to think that almost […]
Romans 3:9 What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin. (NKJV; emphasis mine) (Previous devotionals can be found at www.seriousfaith.com)Imagine with me…. you read an advertisement that declares one of history’s all time greatest preachers will be presenting God’s Word to the lost. “Bring your unsaved friends, your unbelieving family members and all of your neighbors who need the Gospel!” the ad declares. You arrive at the service to find not only a huge crowd of non-Christians, but a large contingent of Christian leaders as well – Pastors, preachers, church growth specialists, teachers – all anxious to witness how the “best Preacher of all time” does things so […]

Question:I know of someone where I work who claims to be a Christian that is committing adultery. Should I stick my nose in, or is it none of my business? How should a Christian respond? Answer:We live in a “morally coward” world today. It’s ironic that everyone wants to KNOW ABOUT the “dirty secrets” but when it comes to taking a stand or getting involved, we are quick to invoke “it’s not my business” or “I don’t want to be judgmental” routine.As Christians, this is wrong on both counts. We are not to want to know all the “dirt” that is going on. Adultery, fornication, homosexuality, cheating, lying, stealing… it’s all titillating and juicy. It feeds our flesh to be in on all the gossip […]
When I publish a new book, I let people know it’s available and that’s pretty much it. I’ve never begged, coerced, urged or pleaded with folks to buy one of my books. Purchase: Paper | Audio | eBook This time I am. My book “Terrorist to Evangelist” is now out through a national publisher and has a real chance to get on the map… but SALES are what drives it up on selling lists and gets it noticed by the various book powers that be. So for the first time ever, I’m begging every one I know to buy a copy – any format (paperback, audio or ebook). Purchase: Paper | Audio | eBook I write a lot of material for a limited audience (the serious Christian market). This book has […]

Question:About 34 years ago my parents gave me a bible that was called the “Smith-Goodspeed” translation. I have not been able to find any information on this translation, nor have I been able to find a copy to purchase. Do you have any information on this translation? Answer:The Smith-Goodspeed Bible is also known as the American Translation, or the Chicago translation because the authors were from various institutions in the Chicago area.As with most modern language translations, the authors saw a need for the Scriptures to be translated into the common English language. By the 1930’s when this version was started, textual criticism and the science of translation was far advanced from the days of the Authorized text.Many Hebrew helps, lexicons, grammatical works and lexical […]
Question:What does it mean to “shod your feet” with the “preparation of the gospel of peace”? Answer:The verse in question is:Ephesians 6:15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; (NKJV)This verse is part of a common section of Scripture referred to as the “Armor of God”. It describes several pieces of what would have been the common equipment of the Roman soldier of that day.The soldiers wore boots with long cleats or nail-like spikes that would allow them to anchor themselves to ground with more stability than the enemy.The Gospel of Peace anchors us, giving us divine confidence that when the battle for souls rages, and the enemy world comes against us, we can stand firm know that 1) […]

Question:I have always struggled with being critical about others. I have often regretted the things I say about other people that have then hurt my relationships. Why do I criticize others? What makes a person have that “personality”? Answer:Ephesians 4:29 Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. (NASB) There are many ways to answer this including giving you verses that talk about our speech and what is considered Godly communication. Our opening verse pretty much sums it up in words you have heard before “if you can’t say something good, keep your mouth shut”. What I want […]
