Rightly Dividing the Word

A lot of people talk about having faith, but there is a big difference between faith and saving faith. A coach might say to his star athlete, “I’ve got faith in you. I know you can do it.” Everyone has faith in something, but not everyone has saving faith. So, what is saving faith? Saving […]

Rightly Dividing the Word

The apostle Paul wrote fourteen books in the New Testament. Peter referred to them as “the other scriptures” (2 Peter 3:16), and so commended them as the divinely inspired Word of God.

A Young Earth

In Shakespeare’s As You Like It Rosalind says, “The poor world is almost six thousand years old, and in all this time there was not any man died in his own person, videlicet, in a love-cause.” The play is a comedy and the witticism could illicit laughter, but it was not the 6000-year-old earth that Shakespeare’s […]

The Day Christ Died

In Gethsemane, Jesus, “having been heard for his godly fear, though he was the Son, yet learned obedience by the things which he suffered” (Hebrews 5:7–10).
