I believe in the power of prayer

by admin

Webster’s Dictionary defines prayer as: “A solemn and humble approach to Divinity in word or thought usually involving beseeching, petition, confession, praise or thanksgiving.” Prayer, in some form, has been a part of the religious life of most cultures that have existed down through time. Mostly it was a means of calling to an unseen […]

God’s Object in Subjecting us to Vanity

by admin

There are some things that we have to remember that we would rather forget. The remembrance of them brings no pleasure. There are some such things in the symbols of bread and wine, though the outcome is good. We have death, and we see sin. Neither of these things by themselves are pleasant. But they […]

Creation: Out of Nothing

by admin

Just Be Cause! How did we come into existence? How did the universe, earth, and life come to exist? This is a massive question and one that the Bible states right up front: “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1, ESV) The Bible claims to be the “inspired word of […]

by admin

I am not a scientist. As is probably true with most people, I can read or hear about the latest discoveries in science, but I often don’t fully understand them. It would be ridiculous for me, with a limited knowledge of science, to deny these discoveries, but it does not necessarily follow that one must […]

The Resurrection of Jesus

by admin

Of all the subjects in the Bible, I think that the resurrection of Jesus is the most important, because it touches on God’s character, the work of his son Jesus, the meaning of the sacrifice of Jesus, the topic itself (Jesus’ own raising from the dead), and our own resurrection. I do not know of […]

Are there benefits to faith?

by admin

Some would say that faith is only for those who are simple or weak and need a crutch to get through life. Some would seem to say that in this world we live in today, atheism is a form of higher thinking that will lead to better things. One would think that this higher thinking […]

Is Faith a Rational Choice?

by admin

It is assumed by some that those who believe could not possibly have reached their position rationally. Since faith is partly based on things that cannot be seen, and making a rational choice is dependent on evidence, this seems proof to them that faith is not a rational choice. However, how many of our day-to-day […]

Why I Read the Bible

by admin

There are so many uncertainties and causes for worry in the world today. We all make goals and plans for the future, but the future is uncertain and when we pause to consider this it can’t help but make us a little uneasy. This is part of the reason why I read the Bible. The […]
