Some Things Said… (June 05)

California defeats 'gender neutral' marriage The California Assembly has defeated a bill to make marriage "gender neutral," dashing hopes among homosexual-rights groups that lawmakers in the nation's most populous state would become the first to legalize same-sex "marriage" without a court order. On Thursday, the last of three votes on the "marriage equality" bill…fell four votes short of the 41 needed to pass the Assembly. --By Cheryl Wetzstein from The Washington Times 06.04.05 Going nowhere We read wordy books and…

Redemption in Christ (1)

"In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace, which he made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence." (Ephesians 1: 7-8) To sin means to miss the mark. As the target is set and placed by God then to sin means to violate Gods Law; and that can be either through omission or by commission of acts that are in violation of that law. The apostle John…

Things That Hinder Prayer (1)

When we talk about prayer we are very pleased when we have our prayers answered the way we wanted and in a timely fashion. We are very happy with God when we see our prayers being answered. But when we do not see our prayers readily answered, then many times we like to play the blame game. Sometimes we want to blame God for what seems to be unanswered prayer. I would like for us to see that when our…

Finding Real Faith

Many Christians believe that God requires them to have "blind" faith in Jesus. I recently saw a television show where a person challenged a proclaimed Christian to prove that there is a God and that Jesus raised from the dead. The proclaimed Christian's defense was simply that she felt that there was a God. But this is foreign to the scriptures in regards to a person knowing if there is a God. As we will notice in this article, the…

True Discipleship With Jesus

There is no doubt in my mind that there is one of Jesus apostles that has received a "bad rap." To mention his name will automatically conjure in ones mind a certain characteristic about him based upon one isolated incident. When I say the name "Thomas" most people automatically place the description in front of his name "Doubting." But there are other recorded incidents of Thomas life that have been ignored. In this lesson I want to look at the…

Show Us The Father And It Will Be Enough

How many times have you thought that faith would be easier if you had been alive in the first century and seen Jesus with your own eyes? How many times have you thought that if you could simply see the miracles or hear the teachings of Jesus that it would be enough to solidify your faith? I know I have always thought that it would make a difference in my life if I had been alive and had seen and…

Are You Faith Challenged?

The challenge of faith is an issue Jesus repeatedly addressed with his disciples. When Peter sank into the water after Jesus called him to come out of the boat walking on the water, Jesus declared "O you of little faith" (Matthew 14:31). When Jesus was asleep in the boat while the disciples dealt with the wind and waves battering the boat, the disciples believed they were all going to drown. Jesus' response: "Why are you fearful, O you of little…

What The Bible Says Jesus Did (2)

Gods Righteousness Paul declares in Romans 3:21-26 that Gods righteousness has been revealed apart from the law. The way God was going to save people from their sins and pronounce people innocent has been revealed and it is apart from a system of law-keeping. In fact, the Law of Moses and the prophets attest to the fact that God would save people apart from a system of law-keeping. Notice in verse 21 that there are two laws: the Law of…

What The Bible Says Jesus Did (1)

The work of Jesus is the single most important event in human history. Jesus came to this world, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross. Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead. Have you ever asked the question, "Why did Jesus have to die?" Perhaps the more important question: what did Jesus death and resurrection accomplish? RANSOM Jesus described his purpose to his disciples: "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but…
