Justification By Faith, Perfected By Works

April 12, 2019

    Faith or Works, or Both?   The title of this lesson is ” Justification By Faith, Perfected By works”.  But let me explain exactly what is meant by that.. The justification that God gives to a person, is because of their faith, which has been “perfected”, or “made complete”, through their works.  The word “works” simply refers to deeds that are done.  But I’m not talking about doing…

    Why Has God Communicated With Man?   Our question for today is this;  Is there any reason for God to have any further communications with man, in addition to communicating with us through the bible?  In the bible, we have the entire history of God’s communications with man.  From Adam, up until the complete revelation of the new testament law of Christ. We’re reminded of what it says…

Is The Bible A Testimony Of The Life Of Jesus ?

June 15, 2018

    How do you see the bible?     Here’s a statement that was made to me this past week.  “You see the bible as a rule book, instead of a testimony of the life of Jesus.”   That’s an interesting comparison;  A rule book on the one hand, and a testimony on the other.  How do you see the bible?  Do you see it as nothing more than…

Have You Heard The Good News ?

February 17, 2018

    What Is The Gospel ?   What if we could heal people of illnesses, simply by loving them?  Wouldn’t that be great.  We could heal our family members, and our close friends.  If we had enough capacity to love, we could heal everyone.  But what would happen to the people who don’t have anyone to love them?  Would they simply have to remain sick, and possibly die?  What…

Separating The Physical From The Spiritual

September 28, 2017

What Must I Do To Be Saved ?

September 27, 2017

      Salvation   The most important question that we could ever ask, is;  “What must I do to be saved”.    If we don’t know HOW to be saved, it’s pretty much guaranteed, we WON’T be saved.   But before we answer the question of HOW we can be saved, let’s consider this question;  “What is it, that makes us UN-saved?” To be Un-saved, is to be lost.  Jesus said in  Luke 19, verse…

A Treasure In Earthen Vessels

June 10, 2017

      What is a “Treasure in Earthen Vessels” ?    A treasure could be of gold and silver and gemstones couldn’t it?  And earthen vessels could be pottery made out of clay.   That would be “Treasure in earthen vessels”.   When the Dead Sea Scrolls were found stored inside large clay pots, and hidden in caves, those were treasures in earthen vessels. But the bible speaks about one specific “treasure”, that’s carried in “earthen…
