Confessions of an Atheist

I used to be an atheist. No, not the kind of “atheist” that exhausts him­self trying to disprove God. You know that kind. The ones that leave Santa alone because they know he doesn’t exist, but spend their lives debating about God who they think doesn’t exist. That

Why Does God Allow Suffering?

Sorrow. Pain. Suffering. All have experienced the meaning of these words. With much pain do we en­ter this world and with pain do we get old and die. Everywhere around us, suffering is evident. We see it in the eyes of the children who call a sidewalk their

But Wasn’t the Bible Written by Man?

Has God given man a revelation? Has He spoken? I say, unquestionably, yes. And this word to us is contained in the books of the Bible. This being the case, it is no surprise that Satan levels his attacks against its veracity.   Divine Inspiration “But,” says the

Evolution: Science or Philosophy?

Compassion for Hurting Hearts

I feel a certain pity for the youth of this generation. Many of the challenges they face did not exist in prior generations. Their hurts arrive at a younger age, and their distresses arise from a greater variety of sources. Childhood is now too often not as carefree

The Deficiencies of Day Care

In Titus 2:3-5, the apostle Paul instructs the older women to teach the younger women to be “keepers at home.” How can the home be kept when the mother is gone most of the time? When the mother fulfills her God-given role, she is foundational in the building

A Plea for the Youth

This is a plea for the youth. It is a plea for reason. When will the violence stop? What will it take for our country to wake up and realize that something must change now? The partisan war rages and our chil­dren are the casualties. While pundits from

Abortion—Ending a Life That Has a Right to Live​

Motherhood—A High Calling

Am I wasting my time? Wasn’t I made for bigger things? Perhaps any mother has at some moment had such a question presented to her mind, especially in a society that doesn’t view washing dishes, combing hair, changing diapers, scrubbing laundry, or bringing up children as notable achievements.

Why Use Cosmetics?

Are You Being Robbed By a Career?

With respect to the household duties and childrearing responsibilities, women were pondering what Betty Friedan in her 1963 book, The Feminine Mystique, referred to as the silent question – “Is this all?” The women’s liberation movement that began in the 1960s and continued into the early 1980s, also

Growing Old Gracefully

One season must always give way to another. It is the course of nature. We accept it, for it cannot be changed. And, similarly, so it is with mankind. Toddling childhood goes on to become swift-footed youth. Years pass, then mid-life reluctantly moves on to the mature years.

Sexual Liberation—A Door to Devastation

“A liberated woman is one who has sex before marriage and a job afterwards.”      Gloria Steinheim, feminist. There was a time in our country when sex was regarded as special and sacred. This relationship was reserved to show in­tense love between a man and a woman, who

Judgment Must Be Laid

Thank God for judgment! When judgment is at work, riffraff is not permitted to mingle with the righteous and pollute the place of the holy. Judgment fixes a great gulf, here in this life, and in the life to come, between the just and the unjust. True judgment

Religious Indifference

Indifference is often a state of mind of people who intellectually believe in God and in divine revelation. How amazing it is that any being with a mind, a conscience, and a soul can remain indifferent after he has once heard, or once professed to believe that there

Wicked Transformations

Religious deceit has always been a favourite weapon of Satan, and what better way to seduce souls than by the false prophets who run about acting as agents of heaven, when they are, in fact, agents of hell. Satan employs these “double agents” for one single purpose: the

Holiness Is Not Popular

Do not think you can make holiness popular. It cannot be done. There is no such thing as holiness separate from “Christ in you,” and it is an impossibility to make Christ Jesus popular in this world. To sinners and carnal professors, the real Christ Jesus has always

Still Unbelieving

The Spirit and Power of a Forerunner

Awakening

Sin is deceitful. How else would a human being dare commit an act of rebellion against his Creator, knowing full well that he must pay for it in this life and for all eternity? He could not do it except he was deceived. Sin is mixed with a

The True Christian Position on Homosexuality

What is the true Christian position on homosexuality? We say “true position” because there are different ways which those with a supposed Christian world view have responded to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. Some “Christians” rant with offensive labels against homosexuals, many of whom lead wicked

The Sign of His Coming

Slanguage

Christians are to be guided by Bible admonitions, yet many are guilty of the habitual use of expressions the dictionary terms as minced oaths. These are taken from the New Century dictionary. “Gosh, golly” are softened and euphemistic forms for God. “Gee” is a minced form for Jesus.

Sorcery

Bringing Souls to Repentance

The true minister, convinced, both by revelation and experience, that Jesus Christ alone is able to recover diseased souls, employs every effort to bring sinners into the pres­ence of this heavenly Physician, that they may obtain of Him spiritual health and sal­vation.

Preaching So As to Convert Nobody

For Self-Interest or God’s Glory?

Is God a means used to attain an end or is He the end for which all else is subjected to attain? Is God our servant or are we His servants? This is one great difference between true Christianity and false Christianity. Though they may outwardly do some

The Nations are Dancing

Where are the leaders—political or religious—with backbone today? Where are the men and women with moral convictions? While the nations are being pressured to succumb to the demands of a liberal, ungodly minority, one has to wonder. The extremely aggressive homosexual movement is piping and the nations are

We Still Believe in a Real Hell

We still believe in a literal hell. Hell–a place of everlasting punishment with eternal, burning flame. Although it isn’t fashionable to believe such in our “enlightened” age, we still do. The Jehovah’s Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists have robbed hell of its eternal aspects through their concepts of

Cremation – A Pagan Practice

No hearse, no body, and no entourage to a cemetery. The remains have been cremated. The ashes have been mixed with cement and made into an artificial reef, which is then placed in the sea. One such “cemetery” is Neptune off the coast of Florida. Corals and other

Refined Wickedness

The Spirit of Antichrist

The Sin of Ecumenicalism

This poor world hardly knows what the real gospel is anymore. I unhesitatingly lay the blame for this at the door of the modern religious world. Weak, shallow, and effeminate in its fight against wrong, false religion has done more to enlarge hell than alcohol or drugs has
