"Sin ... exceeding sinful."—Romans 7:13 Beware of light thoughts of sin. At the time of conversion, the conscience is so tender, that we are afraid of the slightest sin. Young converts have a holy timidity, a godly fear lest they should offend against God. But alas! very soon the fine bloom upon these first ripe … Continue reading “Sin … exceeding sinful.”
Hate is a strong word. I rarely use it. When I do use it, I make it clear that I do not use it in jest, or without reason. When I say I hate something, I mean I abhor it, I detest it, and I wish it were not in existence. Therefore, saying that I […] … Continue reading I hate the prosperity gospel
by Erin Davis While doing research for Lies Young Women Believe, we asked girls if they had ever been exposed to satanic activities. The majority said “no.” But when we pressed them on their answer, we found that many of them were naive about what even constituted as “satanic activity” or the potential harm participating … Continue reading Are your emotions giving Satan a foothold?
by Adam Hellyer There’s no such thing as a dead atheist. Atheist or agnostic, believer or unbeliever, all are appointed to die once and then appear before the judgment seat of Christ. Under those circumstance, every knee will bow, everyone will believe. But, while atheism is non-existent in eternity, many still hold to it in this life. Ideas of atheism vary between different cultures and languages, but generally atheism is seen as the belief that there is no … Continue reading Understanding Atheism
Is there blood on your hands? Ezekiel tells us, "Son of Man, Speak unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked (the unbelievers), Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked (the … Continue reading Blood on Your Hands?
What’s the Word on it?

Some people say there is a lady on her way to visit when a table fork falls. Or a gentleman if a knife is dropped. Others believe that plastic flowers bring bad luck. Some attempt to assert their views by saying “touch wood” and then they touch wood. This has its roots in ancient paganism as pantheistic belief holds that trees hold the spirits of departed people. It therefore really means to avert misfortune.
Or, saying “bless you” when someone is sneezing. It is believed that a person’s spirit leaves the body during a sneeze, therfore others then are required to ensure that person doesn’t…

The secret to the devil’s success is keeping people dumb and deceived by lying his sorry head off, beguiling, distorting, and misinforming constantly and incessantly in an ongoing attempt to create a false narrative and a bizarro world of opposites in place of each other, through willing dupes who see and appreciate the sham rather than the truth.
And once such people have been brainwashed they will fight to their last breathe and final drop of blood for the idea that their perceived version of events and conceptual understandings are the correct version, and that it’s not a mere “version,” but absolute truth from which they will never retreat.

There she stood in the garden. She was beautiful, intelligent and confident. There was no need for a crusade for her rights. There was no need for a protest. She had no use for greed, she was the richest women to ever walk the earth. Everything in the garden has been entrusted to her and Adam. The enemy knew that faith and unhindered fellowship with God can’t be defeated. The Serpent is described as crafty and witty. The truth is he has to be. He dwells in darkness. Deceitful spirits especially The Father of Lies have no place in the light. It would be too easy to see clearly and expose him for what he is, a fraud.
The Serpent decides, “I must use what God said some how or call into question His Word. The man and the woman were given everything in the garden.” The fact is they can eat from any…

TEXT: Matt. 7:15-23; 1 John 2:3-6 One of the things that made Jesus a great teacher was his ability to put difficult concepts into a form that people could understand. Most of his teaching is through stories, parables, and metaphors. He would take an everyday experience and show how the principles of God could be … Continue reading BY THEIR FRUIT
