  • God is only authority on scripture

    In response to my column two weeks ago regarding the authenticity of the Bible, I received an email from a reader.
    I always welcome emails from my readers, of course. This particular reader made claims that the Bible was actually property of the Catholic Church. The reader went on to elaborate that per the Catholic Church, the Bible was not the only writings of Christianity.
    Finally, my correspondent said we know this to be true since the Roman Catholic Church says so.
    Now, not to pick at other religions, but this doesn’t hold water for me.

  • Skeptics, take note of Bible’s accuracy

    When speaking with others about the word of God, I often run into skeptics who say that the Bible has been changed over time.
    They say that King James translated it into his own version, and that it’s not wholly accurate.
    Sadly for the many that I hear make such foolish statements, the Bible is real and accurate. Let me tell you why I believe this, and so should you.
    There are more than 5,000 New Testament transcripts today, some of which have been documented as dating back to the second century.

  • Do you really know who Jesus was?

    Who was Jesus Christ?
    Recently, a local man told me how Jesus was less than God, according to his beliefs.
    This pained me deeply because Christ is above all.
    Most professing Christians believe he was the son of God who died on the cross for our sins.
    We know of his life story how he raised the dead, walked on water, healed the sick, and even forgave sin.
    But did you know that he is actually God? Don’t take my word for it, let’s see what some of the scriptures tell us about the supremacy of Jesus.

  • What will you tell God on Judgment Day?

    You will stand before God one day and be judged. So will I. Philippians 2:10-11 says, “at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
    One of the most powerful preachers of our time, Paul Washer, describes our relationship with Christ as follows.
