  • Is Christianity a “Relationship with God”?

    We’ve all heard it said that “Christianity is a relationship with God, not a religion.” Is this true? If so, what is the support for it in the Holy Scriptures, God’s blueprint for authentic Christianity? From beginning to the end, the Bible unveils the story of the Creator’s relationship with humanity: From the creation of […]

  • Why did Christ decline to give “Signs on Demand”?

    After Jesus cast out a demon from a mute person and the onlookers marveled, some demanded a greater sign: Others tested him by asking for a sign from heaven. Luke 11:16 Matthew’s parallel account reveals that these “others” were the Pharisees and teachers of the law (Matthew 12:38). Apparently exorcising an evil spirit wasn’t good […]

  • What’s the Bible say about Mary and Mary Veneration?

    Humble Mary was “highly favored” of the LORD (Luke 1:28) and her relative Elizabeth called her “the mother of my Lord” (Luke 1:43). Moreover Mary’s inspired song says that generations from then on would call her blessed (Luke 1:48). This shows that believers should have a high respect for Mary, which is what ‘venerate’ means.

  • Nosiness and Manipulation (NOT Spiritual)

    Unspiritual people have a tendency to pry into other people’s business. In other words, they have an unhealthy interest in the private affairs of others. This is nosiness and can be observed when Christ prophesied how Peter would eventually die, which prompted Peter to nosily inquire about how John would die. Jesus responded, “If I […]

  • The Issue of Eating Meat Sacrificed to Idols

    Paul clearly established that eating meat sacrificed to idols was a neutral issue in the epistle of 1 Corinthians, which was written in 54-55 AD. Fifty years later John wrote in Revelation about Jesus rebuking the church at Thyatira for allowing a woman prophetess to mislead believers into sexual immorality and eating meat sacrificed to […]

  • What did Jude mean about not daring to bring a Slanderous Accusation against the Devil?

    Let’s read the passage in question: In the very same way, on the strength of their dreams these ungodly people pollute their own bodies, reject authority and heap abuse on celestial beings. 9 But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to […]
