Forsaking True Worship

 “After seeking advice, the king made two golden calves. He said to the people, ‘It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem. Here are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt. One he set up in Bethel, and the other in Dan. And this thing became a sin; the […]

For God gave us not a spirit of fearfulness; but of power and love and discipline.  Be not ashamed of the testimony of the Lord, nor of me his prisoner; but suffer hardship with the gospel according to the power of God…” (2 Timothy 1:7-8) The Prussian king Frederick the Great was widely known as […]

Article by Irvin Himmel All of us are babes when born into God’s family, but maturity should be our aim. A mature person is fully developed, grown up, seasoned, experienced; he has attained spiritual adulthood or wholeness. The word “perfect” sometimes is used in the Bible in the sense of mature or complete, rather than […]

After contending with the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel and proving to the people the power of God, Elijah was forced to flee from the wrath of Jezebel. He then spoke to the Lord at Horeb about what was troubling him. “Then he came there to a cave and lodged there; and behold, the […]

The Christian’s Apparel — Inside and Out

The real measure of a Christian lies on the inside. Jesus repeatedly warned those who admired the hypocrites of that day that it was “out of the heart” that one’s actions arise (Mt 12:34-35, 15:18-19). Later, our Lord confronted these men with the plainest and strongest words of His ministry. “For you cleanse the outside […]

The Role of the Mother in the Home

  The mother has a special place of responsibility in the home. Aged women are to teach “the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discrete, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed” (Tit. 2:4, 5).

Anyone who studies the Bible carefully comes face to face with the providence of God. His hand is seen in events that unfold throughout the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. If one really believes the Bible one will also believe in the providence of God. Yet, many who see God’s hand in past events will […]

It is said in Scripture, ” We walk in faith, not by sight,” and again, “without faith it is impossible to be well-pleasing unto God.” So, walking by faith, we accept the statement of Heb. 9:22, “Without the shedding of blood there is no remission.” I believe therefore that in the wisdom of God, it was […]

The Dark Path of Bitterness

How is it possible for Satan to defeat and capture a child of God who had previously escaped his grasp? Satan is exposed in the Bible for the deceiver that he is. Jesus described him as having “no truth in him” and as being a “liar and the father of it” (John 8:44). While it […]

From the Heart: Why Go To Church?

If we truly consider God to be our God then worship should be a vital part of our lives. As God’s people we should always be ready to bow before Him and exalt His name. And just between you and me I can’t think of a better place to do that than in His house with His people.

From the Heart: The church of Christ

Has anyone ever ask you why you are a member of the Church of Christ? Good people from many walks of life wonder from time to time why we have so many different religious beliefs, so many different churches, how it all got started and will we ever be able to worship in harmony with […]
