     | 3,102 views

    Whether ignorant or evil, they are working for Satan who spread the lie that all ours sins, past-present-future, have already been forgiven; thus, we do not have to worry about sinning.

    Dealing With Sin Illustration It is remarkable what people will do in response to hearing what they want to hear, or in response to getting their own way.

     | 4,221 views

     | 2,370 views

    Sometime change in our, and our churches, Christian perspective is so slow that we fail to recognize what is happening. It is like the drip-by-drip change, which Nazi ideology brought to Germany.

Illustration We need to take the time to question how the German people could have allowed Nazi fanatics to turn their country into a Satanic tool that killed Jews by the millions?

    Contributed by Robert Sickler on Jan 18, 2016
     | 1,436 views

    What pleases the ear is not always sound doctrine; yet, what pleases the ear is what people want to hear. What is sound doctrine regarding Jesus' return?

    Illustration: What sounds good does not always end up being good. By the time the Nazis came to power in January 1933, the German people were totally fed-up with the incompetence and corruption of law enforcement under the Weimar Republic. Hitler, on the other hand, posed as a champion of law ...read more

     | 4,185 views

    We can neither escape experiencing the evils of this world nor can we avoid God’s testing the quality of our devotion by letting us experience reality. It is important, however, that we do not let the hard times damage our faith and service to Christ.

  • Qualifying Sin

    Contributed by Robert Sickler on Sep 21, 2015
     | 1,267 views

    It is very simple, when we fail to obey everything Jesus taught we are sinning; when we continue to sin we are living a sinful lifestyle; when we live a sinful lifestyle we are lost and going to hell.

    QUALIFYING SIN Blinded By Ignorance People do not seem to enjoy hearing sermons about sin; perhaps that is why we seldom take the time to really preach on the definition of sin. We leave people with an unclear perspective on sin in their lives. As a result, people consider sinning to be ...read more

  • Consuming The Gospel

    Contributed by Robert Sickler on Jun 5, 2015
     | 1,632 views

    According to surveys 78% of Americans are Christians but only 9% of Americans read the bible every day. Perhaps this is because one must go beyond reading the bible merely for the sake of reading the bible; we must truly consume the bible.

    Consuming the Gospel Illustration Remember the vision of glory that Ezekiel had. The Lord spoke to Ezekiel saying: “Now you, son of man, listen to what I am speaking to you; do not be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth and eat what I am giving you.” Then Ezekiel ...read more

    When people come to the realization that God's divine plan requires self-sacrifice and service to Christ they rebel, and the true Christian becomes a serious minority.

    Manifold Wisdom of God Illustration Statistics would have you believe that over 80% of Americans are Christians, and historians would have you believe that American colonial patriotic zeal was shared with over 80% of the colonist. Sometime what is shouted the loudest and the longest is assumed ...read more
