Abortion from the Lips of an Aborted Child

Dear Mommy, I am in Heaven now, sitting on Jesus’ lap. He loves me and cries with me; for my heart has been broken. I so wanted to be your little girl. I don’t quite understand what has happened. I was so excited when I began realizing my existence. I was in a dark, yet […]

America Love It Or Leave It

            What in the world has gotten into so many people in this land of America.  There are many of our statesmen who seem to be afraid of offending someone if we as a nation want to stick to some of the ways of the past, which are even Biblical.                                                  For a start; the […]

Answering Petition # 2493

Thank you for your communication concerning the broadcasting of religious programs. The information here presents basic facts on a subject that in recent years have aroused widespread interest and has resulted in a great number of letters and telephone calls to the Commission.   In December 1974 a petition from Jeremy D. Lansman and Lorenzo […]

Antichrist – Who or What?

There have been many theologians debating this subject for centuries.  Thus, we will not cover all aspects of a study on the subject in a few minutes.  But for a bird’s eye view of the subject let us begin with the following.      A false prophet and evil being who will set himself up […]

A Psalm Is . . .

Praise be to the God of creation who gives many ways to worship Him.  Music is a method, procedure, means, channel, process, or an avenue to accomplish this.     I am convinced that the Greek words used in Ephesians 5:19 permits instrumental accompaniment. These words are as follows:   A) Psalm (Greek – PSALMOS) […]

Are the Degrees of Punishment or Reward in Eternity Taught in the Scriptures

Most Bible students wish that God would have answered the question a little plainer concerning degrees of punishment in Hell or degrees of reward in Heaven!  Many have concluded that wicked men like Nero, Adolph Hitler and Saddam Hussein (instigator of the Desert Storm War of 1991) certainly deserve more of a punishment in Hell […]

Being A Part Of Union Church Services

            Pertaining to working with denominational ministers in Union Services (Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.), I am one Pulpit Minister who has a problem. I have made attempts to cooperate with local denominational ministerial groups. However, my track record is not very good.               I can cooperate on given projects without any problem. Such is […]

Baptist Church and Christian Church Compared

Concerning the difference between the Baptist Church and the Churches of Christ or Christian Churches on some doctrinal issues, I will briefly attempt to state such in a few words.  First of all – I am convinced that there are probably many sincere and well meaning church members in the Baptist Church.  They believe: 1)      […]

Birth Control and the Bible

            The Roman Catholic Church declares that the use of contraceptives as a method of birth control is sinful.  They have an Update concerning the dogma.  A copy can be obtained from the Catholic Church by the title, “The How and Why of Natural Family Planning” by Mary Shaivananda.  It strives to demonstrate the difference […]

Born To Bear Witness

Our Text: “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.” (John 1:6-8) “Now this is the testimony of John, when […]

Can A Divorced Man Serve In The Kingdom?

Concerning the question about divorced men serving as an elder or deacon in light of the qualification of the “Husband Of One Wife” (I Timothy 3:2,12), I would like to expound.   This has been chewed over ever since the beginning of the church. I have studied the subject with people from several schools of thought, […]

Carl’s Garden

   The following article came to me and I contended that I should pass it on. This should really make us stop and think!  It has been slightly edited and a conclusion added.  Please take a few minutes and read it. Carl was a quiet man. He didn’t talk much. He would always greet you […]

Child Book, Wrong

Dr. James Dobson of the “Focus On the Family” ministry addressed a book by the above title on his radio program on July 7-8, 2002.  The program was entitled “Pulling Kids From Public Schools”.  He stated that the book was devastating and parents and Christian schools need to be aware of this. Pass this information […]

Christians and the Movies

I am confident that most Christians want to do right and not go beyond God’s boundaries. However, from time to time, they find themselves in situations not knowing what to do. Which movies meet with God’s approval is a problem for many church-goers. No one probably would object to movies such as; “Little House On […]

Church’s Name Is Divine

            There are several Biblical names for the Lord’s church as well as His followers.  The church for which Jesus died (Acts 20:28; Ephesians 5:25), over which he is head (Ephesians 5:23), and about which anyone can read in the Bible is divine.             These names are divine in origin and always glorify God or […]
