Many churches seem to focus on tithing, attendance numbers, beautiful buildings. Of course, we all know those things do not bring us closer to God. We need to feed on God’s word and then apply those truths to our lives. In our non-demoninational group, we never tithe nor ask for donations. We don’t own a [...]
The true religion will reflect the true God. What is God like? Consider how God’s natural creation demonstrates His attributes. Romans 1:20 (NIV), “For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made…” Briefly, creation reflects great power and wisdom. [...]
The search for truth, whether in scientific, philosophical or ethical contexts, is the desire of every human heart. Truth as an absolute concept must involve the Supreme Being of the Universe. For the Christian, the God of the Bible is called "God of Truth" (Isaiah 65:16). God entrusted Jesus, His Only Begotten Son, with the [...]
Many religions are the same! Their gods take only a fraction of mankind to heaven. The great majority of mankind are condemned to eons of suffering either here on earth through reincarnation or in hell. These gods have supposedly created a great and beautiful universe but populated it with lost, sinful souls. Most Christian religions [...]
Where did Buddha, Einstein or other mystics get their wisdom? Does JEHOVAH GOD give any honest, sincere seekers wisdom?
All truths, both in the natural world and spiritual dimensions, belong to God. Deuteronomy 29:29, ‘“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” The purpose of revealed knowledge is to [...]
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.” Psalm 19:1 (NIV). All creation testifies that a great and powerful god must have designed the universe. Then the question becomes, “what is that Creator like?” The enormity, complexity, and precision of nature reflects an all-knowing and all-powerful god. The Creator’s justice is [...]
Christ's continual sacrifice was not actually canceled or abolished by Papacy, but it was set aside by a false doctrine - which completely set aside the merit of Christ's sacrifice as a continual and ever-efficacious one. This false doctrine is known as the Mass, or Sacrifice of the Mass. Protestants in general totally misunderstand this so-called sacrament. They suppose [...]
When we search for truth, we receive great comfort and joy when we find a group which tries to practice true Christianity. That group of individuals will naturally become organized as they carry forward their common goals. During that organizing process, it is also human nature for the group to identify themselves with a name [...]
Mary certainly died. As the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:22, “…in Adam all die…” Since Mary was part of the Adamic race, she did die. The last mention of her in the Bible does confirm that she continued as a believer with other Christians in the early church. Acts 1:14, “These all continued [...]
Is it wrong to celebrate Jesus's birthday? I'm a Baptist member but someone told me that Christmas and Easter are pagan celebrations.
We believe that Jesus was born about October 1st. However, since Jesus never suggested we commemorate His birthday, it’s not important which day we choose to celebrate that wonderful, blessed event. Upon Christmas day, we may properly enough join with all whose hearts are in the attitude of love and appreciation toward God and toward [...]
