The Place Called Calvary

When Christ was born at Bethlehem, the night turned into day: but when he was crucified at Calvary, the day turned to darkest night. In the Old Testament days the sheep died for the shepherd: but in the New Testament days, the Good Shepherd died for the sheep. God loved Abraham so much that he…

The Bible

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrine is holy, its precepts binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be…

The Love of the Truth

The very first sin committed on earth was a result of believing the devil’s lie in preference to accepting God’s truth. God had told Adam and Eve that eating of the forbidden fruit would bring death, but the serpent contradicted God, and with his smooth, deceptive words beguiled the woman, and she fell into his…

The Power of the Gospel

Without a doubt, those who read this article will acknowledge that the Gospel of Christ has great power–power to bring salvation. Paul said, “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation”—Romans 1:16. However, of the many who realize that power to save, but few will…

The vast majority of the readers of this article are believers in both God and Jesus as His son, the Christ. But do you know why you believe? We can believe in God through the evidences of the world about us. David, the king of ancient Israel, phrased it this way: “The heavens declare the…

Why We Need Jesus

Man is a very intelligent being, but his intelligence and wisdom are greatly limited. That limitation is indicated by the fact that very often he does not realize his greatest needs, I am sure that heaven’s greatest grief is the fact that the average person has little consciousness of his need of God. And the…

A CHRISTIAN’S MESSAGE

In II Corinthians 4:13 Paul said, “We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.” Deep convictions with reference to the welfare of the human race, are not to be kept locked up in our hearts. They should be made known for the…

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER

Any sensible, intelligent undertaking must have a definite purpose, and in starting the publication of this paper, I will print this statement from Bro. Wm. Hensley, the author of the article on “What Must I Do To Be Saved.” “A religious journal is of little value to the many unless it clearly implies to the…

IS GOD A MYTH?

In the city where I live there are many churches, a conglomeration of many faiths or beliefs. From the standpoint of soul saving, there is little excuse for some of them to exist, for they make no effort to bring people into a closer walk with God. In a recent edition of a weekly paper…
