From Where Did Morality Come?

In all ages and around the globe, man has had some concept of God. However twisted that concept may have been in all its forms, men have had an inward sense of knowing that they are accountable to someone.

Ye Must Be Born Again

Christ and the Church: A Perfect Living Whole

A Word of Testimony For years now, my truth-loving heart has not allowed me to receive the “evangelical” teaching that the church is both an organism and an organization. In the majority of church history and theology text books which have been written, you will find this teaching.

The Church Is an Organic Structure

When men charge us with discarding all organizations, they either ignorantly or willfully misrepresent us. As the Word teaches, so we teach. The church that Jesus purchased with His own blood, He also “built” (Matt. 16:18); that is, organized. “In whom [Christ] all the building fitly framed together

To the Unconverted

The Voice of the Church On Dress

Baptism

Some people say that baptism, since it is an ordinance, has been done away with according to Colossians 2:13-14. Is this true? No. The verses in Colossians are plainly talking about the law of Moses, “the handwriting” having reference to Deuteronomy 31:9, 24. It is quite plain that
