THAT YOU MAY KNOW

Attention has been called to the fact that numerous Christians, as well as entire congregations are falling away from the faith. Such is a result of the work of false teachers (2 Thes. 2:1-12).

Don’t Imitate The Baptism of Jesus!

Discussions about salvation between members of the church of Christ and those of denominations eventually (if not initially) focus upon the subject of baptism. Since virtually all in denominationalism object to the statement: “Baptism is essential for salvation,” they will usually have some objection to offer. One such objection is this: “Since Jesus was baptized …

THE LETTER TO THE HEBREWS [OR, TO US?]

The letter entitled, Hebrews, was written to Christians who had been converted from the Jewish religion.

Helps for Interpreting the BIBLE

Since we are to “rightly divide the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15) to the extent that we do not teach nor practice error (Rev. 22:18-19), then we must correctly interpret the Bible. While there are many principles involved in proper interpretation, the following will certainly help.FIRST: Who was the speaker? Was he inspired or …

A Plea For Christ

Our life as a Christian is a plea to the world on behalf of Jesus Christ. We do so by our words (Phil. 2:16; Mark 16:16) and our manner of life (Mat. 5:1; 1 Pet. 3:15; 2 Cor. 3:2-3). What, then, is it we are to plea?When we plea for Christ to the world, we …

Agape

“1. Affection, good-will, love, benevolence” is the definition given by Thayer to the Greek word agape. The Scriptures describe it as actions of benevolence or esteem due to one’s intense desire for the well-being of another (John 3:16; 1 John 3:16-19; 4:9-11). It is not merely saying “I love you.” Rather, it is love manifested …

A MOTHER’S PRODUCTIVITY

It used to be that nobody could criticize motherhood, the flag or apple pie. Today some folks use the flag for kitchen curtains, Sara Lee makes the pie, and motherhood is delegated to the day care center. Productivity is the key idea. Women who have secular careers are thought to be productive, while one who …
