I found this series of studies and loved it. I hope you enjoy them. You can skip ahead on your own, or you can wait for me to reblog them.

Holy Bible This study and the next are not aimed simply at justifying the existence of this course, although this is part of their purpose, but are studies taking us right into the Bible itself.  They will highlight some important principles of biblical study and interpretation, and much of the course will take these up and illustrate them in more detail.

For God So Loved The World

Jesus name above every nameJohn 3:16 is probably the most familiar and most quoted verse in the Bible. Whenever I quote it, I always like to add the two verses that follow it (John 3:16-18):

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son [Jesus Christ] that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Too often, we tend to have a one-dimensional image in our mind of who Jesus Christ is to us. He is, indeed, first and foremost, Lord and Savior to those who believe in and trust in…

The Times They Are A-Changin’

It’s been a while since I have written a blog post on our pop culture. And it’s due. Our past has much to say about our future. Most of the time we don’t listen (history has a remarkable, or rather unremarkable, way of repeating itself). However, it does make for some great songs, such as Bob Dylan’s 1964 song titled, The Times They Are A-Changin.’” It’s been 51 years now since that song was composed and made famous. For those of us who remember (and I was a kid back then), it doesn’t seem possible that it’s been that long ago. Oh, and the times? Well, they certainly have changed since then.

This blog post would be hopelessly long if I tried to detail all of the events that have shaped America since the 1960’s, and I’ve written about some of those events in previous blog…

The Conclusion of the Matter

While the Bible makes it plain that we should not fear, there is one fear that is very good for us. That is the fear of God (see link at GotQuestions?org). For one thing, it keeps us humble, and hopefully honest, too. Unfortunately, there’s not much of either of those two attributes in our world today, and that speaks loudly to the issue of what we really think of God, and of ourselves, too.

Proverbs 1:7 states the following:

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

And Psalm 14:1, which is repeated again in Psalm 53:1, states:

The fool says in his heart,
“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.

In answer to those who say there is no God, GotQuestions?org makes the following…

What’s In The Bible?

In fact, it’s hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. It was a year ago this June that I went to St. Andrew’s Conservatory of Music in Sanford to interview for a part time administrative assistant position which is also where St. Andrew’s Chapel is located. The buildings and grounds surrounding St. Andrew’s Chapel are breathtakingly beautiful and it is also home to Ligioner Ministries, the teaching fellowship of Dr. R.C. Sproul, who is the founder and chairman.

While I didn’t get the part time administrative assistant position I interviewed for back then, I never forgot how beautiful the buildings and grounds were and I decided that since I was in the area…

Prophetic Dream: The Perfect Storm Is Upon America (via Charismamag)

America's perfect storm is coming.

The Father showed five areas on which the American church must change its position before the 2016 election.

One of them was the issue of sexual immorality. Another was abortion. The third is our view and perception of what biblical love and grace really is. He reminded me of a powerful prophetic dream He had given me several years ago. Read the rest of this entry »
