Should Depictions Of Christ Be Forbidden?

Historically, Christians have proven contentious and confrontational concerning depicting Jesus in any form. Even since the flashpoints of iconoclasm (image/symbol breaking) during the early Middle Ages and the Reformation, the issue has never been completely without debate. We must approach this with an open mind and a respectable degree of tolerance.  Let’s begin by discussing the nature of idolatry in the Scriptures, and why it was consistently condemned. Let us examine Exodus 20:3-5. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above … Read More >

Do All Religions Lead To God?

Are the gods of Hinduism and Islam merely another expression of the Christian God? Does biblical Christianity advocate an overtly tolerant attitude toward other religions and faiths?  The Scriptures speak candidly concerning the gods of other religions. The Old Testament demonstrates a profound intolerance for false worship and for the gods of the nations (Exodus 20:1-6).  Even throughout the poetic writings, this demeanor does not change, with the psalmist calling the gods of the nations “idols” (Psalm 96:4-5).  The New Testament does not pacify this sentiment but intensifies the distinction between the God of the … Read More >

God's Move

Thy right hand, O, Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.” —Exodus 15:6 How glorious in power is the hand that in the beginning created the heavens and the earth. How glorious in power the hand that made the sun, whose flames leap into space 250,000 miles, a sun with plenty of heat and light, so much given off and only a small part of it used by a universe. How bounteous the makings of this hand that gives light and warmth. What strength in this hand … Read More >

Is It Returning Backsliding Saints That Cause Rejoicing In Heaven, Or Is It Sinners That Repent?

The great supper of Luke 14 speaks of what God has prepared for sinners and it is to such the invitation goes out, “Come for all things are now ready.” Where then, will God find His guests? How our heart rejoices and the soul bows in adoration and praise as we think of the grace of God which goes out to the despised man of the street, or the destitute inhabitant of the lanes, or any wretched child of poverty who has been driven by sheer necessity to take shelter wherever found. “Go out quickly into the streets and … Read More >

Living Like Eagles

If you were to mention the eagle to a Jew in Jesus’ day, you would probably get scorn and anger in return. At that time, the eagle was the symbol of the Roman legions; and no loyal Jew wanted his nation controlled by a foreign power. But if you were to mention the eagle to an Old Testament Jew, he would most likely respond with a smile of joy. Why? Because to the believer in the Old Testament days, the eagle was a symbol of God’s gracious care for His people, Israel. God wants us to live like eagles. Not … Read More >

Are There Generational Sins And Curses?

God’s holiness is unmatched. He responds to sin not only with grace, but also with holy judgment. When we observe the nature of sin and punishment in the Old Testament, the prophets record that God treats sin harshly. Sin affects more than merely the perpetrator, it spills over into the community, especially the family. Thus, God speaks of visiting and punishing sins to the third and fourth generation (Exodus 20:5, Numbers 14:18, Lamentations 5:7). Achan and his family’s punishment is one extraordinary example of God’s tenacity for purity, but it should not be considered as a normal … Read More >

Sin: Confessed And Unconfessed

Sin is any action, attitude, or thought which is contrary to the character and command of God (1 John 3:4). As temptation constantly floods our senses, we intentionally and unintentionally are drawn toward it, and often sin. Sin’s influence must not be underestimated, for the Holy Spirit is grieved because of our sin (Ephesians 4:30). While sin is difficult to categorize, we can think of sin in a threefold sense: sins of commission (sins of what we do), sins of omission (sins of what we don’t do), and sins of disposition (sins of how we do something). Sins … Read More >

Sign Of The Blood

When I see the blood I will pass over you. —Exodus 12:13 Of all the events in the history of that most wonderful of all nations, Israel, there is none quite so unique, so sacred, or significant as the one that we undertake to consider tonight known as the Passover. So wonderful was it that God commanded that people to keep it as a memorial feast forever. It was never to be forgotten. And although at the time of the Passover Israel was practically a nation of slaves, from then until now wherever a Jew exists he will point … Read More >

The Lord’s Day, Its Privileges And Responsibilities

The Lord’s Day Alliance was organized fifty-three years ago in order to bring before the people of America the importance of preserving the Lord’s day against the encroachments of those who are seeking to turn our Christian Sunday into a continental Sabbath, as they call it—one which would be spent in pleasure and folly. I am very glad to agree to co-operate with the society by speaking this evening on “The Lord’s Day, Its Privileges and Responsibilities.” I will ask you to turn with me to three passages of Scripture, not exactly as texts, but by way of introducing … Read More >

The Satisfied Life

Unto the tribe of Levi, Moses gave not any inheritance. The Lord God of Israel was their inheritance, as he said unto them” (Joshua 13:33). The first verse of Joshua 13 begins with the Lord’s reminder to Joshua, “there remains yet very much land to be possessed.” We have seen how true that is in relation to the spiritual experience of us all. We remind ourselves that possession of the land by Israel was by lot. In other words, God determined the precise area which each tribe was to occupy, and each was responsible for applying the principles … Read More >
