Freedom From Sexual Sin

Sadly, some believers sincerely question whether or not viewing pornography is wrong at all. But the Scriptures are blunt (Matthew 5:28; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20; 1 John 2:16; Philippians 4:8; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:3-6). God’s standard is purity of heart, for such shall see God (Matthew 5:8). The only way to find freedom from sexual bondage is by utilizing the resources that God has given us—the Word and the Church. We believe that although one can fall into the trap of pornography without any help, we cannot come out of this unclean practice … Read More >

What Can Be Done For The Poor Souls In Purgatory?

Before attempting to answer this question I want to read a verse of Scripture. It is found in the book of the prophet Isaiah. I want to read it both from the King James or Authorized Version of the Bible and also from the Douay or Roman Catholic translation. In our Authorized Version we read in Isaiah 8:20, “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” In the Roman Catholic translation the same verse reads like this, “To the law rather, and … Read More >

The Humiliation Of Christ

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow … Read More >

The Mind Of Christ

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

What More Do We Need?

Someone has defined an atheist as “a man who has no invisible means of support.” We Christians live by the invisible. “Whom having not seen, ye love…” (1 Peter 1:8). Moses “endured, as seeing him who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27); and Abraham “looked for a city…whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:10). The Book of Hebrews was written to Jewish believers who were tempted to go back to the visible—to a temple they could see, a city they could see, and priests and altars that were real to the senses. They were forgetting that all … Read More >

Different Forms Of Church Government

Biblically, the church is described in numerous ways. On one hand, we observe that the local church is a living organism—an expression of the body of Christ. On the other, we know that the church is an organization set up by Christ and regulated by the guidelines commanded throughout the Scriptures. As a divinely commissioned organization, God has ordained leadership to spur on growth, purity, outreach, and holiness. Throughout history, three primary systems of church government have dominated the ideological spectrum of Christian leadership.  Episcopal Government As early as the Apostolic Father Ignatius (the bishop of Antioch until the … Read More >

The Gospel Of The Grace Of God

An address by Dr. Herbert W. Bieber at The Moody Church during the first week of the opening of the new church building in 1925. I have with a great deal of thought chosen my subjects for these three nights. I suppose you believe with me that there are favorite sugar sticks that we Bible teachers like to suck, but I want to bring you messages from the Word of God which I believe would be helpful. My own desire is that in this magnificent church there shall never anything be preached but the gospel of the grace of God … Read More >

The Power Of His Resurrection

An Address on Psalm 18 This is another of the Psalms of David which undoubtedly sets before us in a very wonderful way some personal experiences which he passed through during those dark and difficult years when he was hunted by King Saul like a partridge on the mountains, when at times he despaired of his own life, and became so discouraged that he felt there was no help for him; but eventually in his greatest distress he looked up and realized that God was for him. But while this Psalm, like so many others, sets forth experiences that David … Read More >

Hold Fast And Hold Forth

A sermon preached at The Moody Church by Dr. Walter L. Wilson The Apostle Paul writing to a young man said, “Holding fast the faithful word” (Titus 1:9). What a lovely name to give the precious Book. Writing to a young church, the church at Philippi, he said, “Holding forth the word of life (Philippians 2:16). “Holding fast the faithful Word—holding forth the word of life.” Why? Because we need it for ourselves and because there are enemies trying to take it away from us. Hold it fast, hold it tight, hold it close, cherish it, love … Read More >

The King Is Coming

The King is Coming and We’ll be there for His Return! At this time of year we look back to the manger, to the first appearance of the Son of God as man born of a woman, God in the flesh. But even as we look back, we should also look forward to His bodily return, when He will come a second time to bring us our ultimate salvation. Please keep in mind that the physical Jesus who was laid in a manger as a baby, and who walked the earth as a man, is the same physical Jesus who … Read More >
