Why Do We Believe?

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…

What Shall It Profit You?

Jesus warned against choosing the wrong goal in life. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”—Mark 8:38. No matter how great our material success in life might be in achieving possessions, power, honor, and prestige; it will be of no benefit to us if our…

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…

Who Is Jesus?

Jesus Christ was born in the meanest of circumstances, but the air above was filled with the hallelujahs of the heavenly host. His lodging was a cattle pen, but a star drew distinguished visitants from afar to do Him homage. His birth was contrary to the laws of life; His death was contrary to 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.

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…

ALL THINGS NEW

The word new is a vibrant word, and has attractions in many ways. People desire a new car, a new house, or a new wardrobe. Some of the underlying reasons are that “new” represents trouble-free motoring, clean substantial housing, and moth-free durable clothing. In comparison the “new life” is trouble free, clean and substantial living…

IT IS WRITTEN

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” With this statement Jesus began his defense against Satan. Jesus accepted the authority of God’s word. This should also be the foundation of our defense. Satan cannot destroy the word of the Lord: if he could he…
