Where I Stand #2 - R.Earl
on January 29th, 2019
A question that is asked frequently and deserves an answer is “Can a person be a Christian and not be a member of the Church of Christ?” What we must always keep in mind is that such questions require a Bible answer. Answers based on the standards or the traditions of men are not equal to the word of God. We must always look for what God has said and not what man thinks.            In Matthew 16:1...  Read More

Where I Stand #1 - R.Earl
on January 29th, 2019
It is important to realize that the Christian must stand upon the word of God. This must be our guide and standard in all of life for the Christian. “For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name's sake, Lead me and guide me.” Psalms 31:3 There are many today who stand for truth and have proven that fact by standing faithfully on God’s Word.However, there are also those who do not....  Read More

The Power of Preaching - We Need It Now - R.Massey
on January 29th, 2019
Gospel preaching is powerful because God designed it that way and man cannot design anything more powerful. For we see that through Gospel preaching men are saved from sin (1 Cor. 1:18-21). Since that is the case (and it is), we do not need less preaching, we need more (Acts 6:7). A sermonette by a preacherette will only make Christianettes. We not only need more preaching, but we need more bold p...  Read More

One of the very best examples we have concerning New Testament Christianity in action is that of the church in Jerusalem.

Are they not doing the exact same thing—ignoring God?What’s the difference in an unconverted sinner that does not teach his children the Bible and a Christian that does not teach his children the Bible?

How Rude! - R.Earl
on January 29th, 2019
It is not uncommon, sadly, that some brethren (brothers & sisters) have developed a bad habit of talking to others in a rude & hurtful way. While this may not be intentional, if it is a continual action, it causes the hearer to begin to wonder does it not? Notice the definition of the word rude, “offensively impolite or ill-mannered” (bing.com). Not only are some rude today, some “talk down” to ot...  Read More

on January 29th, 2019
Do you realize that your view of God will affect how you treat others?  The Nazis. Adolf Hitler viewed God as non-existent.

He believed that not only could they do this, but in view of the evolutionary theory, they s...  Read More

The God We Serve
on January 29th, 2019
God has revealed Himself in so many ways. It is truly sad that men often overlook or take for granted this beautiful revelation. He is revealed in His created universe, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” (Psalm 19:1; Psalm 97:6). Add to that; He has clearly revealed Himself in His word, the revelation given by the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21). This revel...  Read More

Sin Is Dark - R.Earl
on January 29th, 2019
Throughout history we see repeatedly that man can be and often is, a slow learner. We sometimes take a long time to grasp what the answer is, I am not talking about a math problem. Man, sometimes must try things, experience things. This is not the best course of action. Though this is often what takes place before he decides, if he ever does, that some experiences are not just overrated, they are ...  Read More

on January 29th, 2019
Blogs, such as this one, are common. In fact, perhaps thousands of blogs by brethren of the Lord’s church exist today. Numerous writers contribute and write on various subjects. Thus, over time authors gain “followers” who subscribe and “follow” them.  No doubt there are many bloggers in the brotherhood who provide sound and encouraging material week after week. However, there are those who are fo...  Read More
