  • Law (Torah) — New Testament Believers are NOT Under the Law

    The Judaizers who infiltrated the Galatian assemblies wanted to put the believers back under the Old Testament Law, along with other religious traditions. A good modern example of this would be the legalists of the Hebrew Roots movement, who have infiltrated many churches and seminaries. Yet notice how clear the New Testament is about believers […]

  • Miracle or Divine Providence — What’s the Difference?

    Believers throw around the word ‘miracle’ a lot when what they really mean is divine providence. There’s a difference: With divine providence God is clearly involved with the event because what happens is just too coincidental (or whatever) and therefore it could be categorized as supernatural provision of some sort. The difference between this and […]

  • Key of Knowledge — What is It?

    Christ noted the “key of knowledge” when addressing the legalistic Teachers of the Law: 46“And you experts in the law, woe to you because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them… 52 Woe to you experts in the law because you […]

  • Deny Yourself or Love Yourself — Which is It? (Both)

    Christians are not  under the Mosaic Law (Galatians 5:18 & Romans 7:6), but under Christ’s law (1 Corinthians 9:19-21 & Galatians 6:2), which is the law of love: Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And […]

  • Pacifism — Absolute Pacifism (Unbiblical) and Limited Pacifism (Biblical)

    Should true believers never  resort to violence under any circumstances whatsoever, as hardcore pacifists advocate? Did Jesus Christ support this position as these people claim? What’s the Bible say, particularly the New Testament? Two Kinds of Pacifism  First, consider the two forms of pacifism: Absolute Pacifism, which is a peaceable attitude that refuses to ever turn to violence in response […]

  • Military Service — Is it Okay for Believers to Serve in the Armed Forces?

    Some hardcore pacifists are so unbalanced they argue that a true Christian should never participate in the military, even in cases where the God-ordained authorities require it. Just yesterday I ran into a couple of believers who adamantly advocated this position. The implication, of course, is that it’s inherently sinful to serve in the military […]

  • Why did God allow Thousands of Years to Pass and for False Religions to Emerge before Revealing the Truth?

    The full question we want to address is this: I wanted to ask you about the period of history that predates any form of Judaism and Christianity. Other religious beliefs existed during this time, such as Hinduism. Why do you think God allowed thousands of years to pass and for false religions to inhabit the Earth […]

  • GRACE — What Is God’s Grace? How Do You Receive It? How Do You Grow In It?

    You hear a lot about “grace” in Christian circles, but what exactly is it? In the Bible it’s translated from the Greek word charis (KAIR-iss), which means “graciousness, favor, kindness.” Consider a “teacher’s pet” in a positive way. Why is a certain student the “teacher’s pet”? Simply because that particular student has the teacher’s favor. […]

  • Church of Christ — What Is It?

    The word ‘church’ in the Greek is ekklesia (ee-KLEE-see-ah), meaning “called out of ” or “the called-out ones.” It refers to people who have been called out of the darkness of this world and consecrated to the LORD via responding in faith & repentance to the good news of the message of Christ (Acts 20:21) […]

  • Trinity — Father/Son/Holy Spirit — Yes or No?

    “The Trinity” is a reference to God as Father/Son/Holy Spirit but, interestingly, the word “Trinity” does not appear in the Bible, which explains why I rarely — if ever — use the term in my teachings. After all, if the LORD doesn’t use the term, why should I? So is the doctrine of the Trinity true? […]
