Will a Man Rob God?

Will a Man Rob God?

The question raised and answered by God through Malachi is indeed attention grabbing. The thought of robbing God should strike at least a moments terror if one is rational in thought (Mal. 3:8). In this dialog between God and man, a picture is given of a condition of...

Illegal Immigration and the Bible

Illegal Immigration and the Bible

I’m not a politician, and don’t claim all the answers to the thorny issue of immigration policy. I am a taxpaying citizen of a border state, with a big-picture view of what I think on the subject. More important is what the Bible says, if anything, that bears on the...

Preach Plainly

Preach Plainly

There is a very interesting and informative event recorded in the eighteenth chapter of the book of First Kings.  The children of Israel had gotten involved with idolatry.  They were “limping” back and forth from Baal to Jehovah.  Elijah, God’s prophet, had all of the...

Dead Churches

Dead Churches

God has no use for dead churches and dead church members.  He condemned the church at Sardis which had a name that they were alive but in reality they were dead (Rev. 3:1).  A little later in Revelation 3 God condemned the church at Laodicea because they were in the...

Entreat Me Not To Leave You

Entreat Me Not To Leave You

The beginning of a beautiful commitment of love from long ago is found in the statement “Entreat me not to leave thee.” It was neither from a husband to his wife, nor a wife to her husband, though it would be perfectly acceptable. This statement of love and commitment...

There’s An All-Seeing Eye Watching You

There’s An All-Seeing Eye Watching You

How often has man committed some great sin and attempted to hide it?  Why is it that men often do more evil in the darkness than in the light?  Jesus said, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light,...
