  • Where Do Christians Go When They Die?

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Apr 1, 2017
     | 4,953 views

    A lesson that answers a question many Christians ponder - 'Where will they go when the physically die?'

    Where Do Christians Go When They Die? Job asks, in Job 14:14, “If a man die, shall he live again?” Job's rhetorical question reflects a question that has been pondered by the vast majority of human beings throughout history. It seems to me that Man, being created in the image of God, has sensed ...read more

  • Grace - The Untold Story

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Mar 31, 2017
    based on 1 rating
     | 2,748 views

    There are those who falsely teach that God's grace, through Christ Jesus, secures salvation without any change in character and lifestyle. Such a view ignores passages which explicitly state that grace demands a transformation.

    Grace is a constant theme in the Bible, and it culminates in the New Testament with the coming of Jesus (John 1:17). By His mercy, God accepted Christ's sufferings and death as the punishment for sin that we all deserved. By His grace (unmerited favor), God extended to those who put their trust ...read more

  • Worship Is A Verb!

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Mar 31, 2017
     | 2,730 views

    Worship services are first and foremost to offer worship to God through Christ Jesus, rather than satisfy the attendee. Many have lost sight of the fact that Church services are more about the attendee giving than receiving.

    “I used to attend congregational worship services but I quit because I got nothing from it.” “Church is boring.” “When I sit in the pew during church services, I think about how much more I could be accomplishing if I had stayed home.” Through the decades, I have heard a multitude of ...read more

  • Depression - A Spiritual Malady

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Mar 31, 2017
    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,368 views

    The Bible is clear that the most often cause of depression and accompanying anxiety is sin that goes unconfessed and unrepented.

    Depression A Spiritual Malady Sadly, an estimated 25 million Americans suffer with depression at any given time. These depressed Americans spend billions of dollars on anti-depressant drugs and billions more on psychological therapies and counseling. However, the vast majority of sufferers ...read more

  • Is It Really Legalism?

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Mar 31, 2017
    based on 1 rating
     | 2,409 views

    In many modern churches, legalism is no more than acknowledging that the Lord has given to His Church a body of legislation that He expects to be taught and obeyed.

    During my decades of Christian ministry, the terms “legalism” and “legalist” have progressively been bandied-about within modern churches and their preachers/pastors. These terms have, primarily, been used to describe and condemn those Christians and churches that believe that there is more ...read more

  • Thank God, Mary Was Pro-Life!

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Mar 31, 2017
     | 2,301 views

    Mary could have claimed all of the top five reasons given by women who are pregnant to justify their getting an abortion. Thank God that Mary was pro-life

    Thank God, Mary Was Pro-Life! Each year, it is my custom to review the latest data on abortion in our Nation. I do so with the yearning to find some stats that give me a little bit of encouragement, a reason to have hope that our Society is coming to its moral and ethical senses by adopting a ...read more

  • Welcome To The "Post-Truth” World!

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Mar 31, 2017
     | 2,956 views

    Those with discernment know that we have been living in a spiritual “Post Truth” world for a millennia. God's facts and truths have been less influential in shaping individual public opinion than have appeals to emotion, personal reason and perspectives.

    Welcome to the “Post-Truth” World! You may have heard that, back in December, the Oxford Dictionary announced that "Post-Truth" is its 2016 word of the year. According to the Dictionary's website, the word is "an adjective defined as 'relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective ...read more

  • Working Women And Titus 2:5

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Mar 31, 2017
    based on 3 ratings
     | 4,805 views

    Decades ago, most Christian pastors, teachers, and counselors in effect tore-out of their Bibles the portion of Titus 2:5 which enjoins that women (especially younger women) are to be “keepers at home.”

    For over a half-century, we have witnessed our society depart from God's will in regard to the differing roles and responsibilities that individuals are to play based upon their gender. Feminism, more than any other ungodly philosophy, has motivated American and European societies to reject the ...read more

  • Simon The Cross Bearer

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Apr 14, 2016
     | 7,649 views

    Lessons from Simon the Cross Bearer, the man that carried Christ's Cross to Golgotha.

    In Luke 23:26, we read: “When they led Him away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, coming in from the country, and placed on him the cross to carry behind Jesus.” I want to comment on this situation and make points that we can apply to our lives today. First, let's ...read more

  • Reed Sea Or Red Sea?

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Apr 14, 2016
     | 1,514 views

    This lesson focuses on what seems to be a major discrepancy between the Old and New Testament. A discrepancy that centers upon the geography of Egypt and the Sinai Peninsula.

    This lesson does not deal with any deep doctrines of the Scriptures nor does it touch on personal and family conduct. I want to turn our attention to what seems to be a major discrepancy between the Old and New Testament. A discrepancy that centers upon the geography of Egypt and the Sinai ...read more

     | 1,662 views

    A study which identifies the difference between true and false legalism.

    During my decades of Christian ministry, the terms “legalism” and “legalist” have progressively been bandied-about within modern churches and their preachers/pastors. These terms have, primarily, been used to describe and condemn those Christians and churches that ...read more

  • Elders And Deacons

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Sep 20, 2015
     | 3,328 views

    The New Testament provides instruction on how the Lord wants His Church to be governed. Two offices are to be found in each mature congregation - Elders and Deacons. This is a brief look at these two offices.

    1. When Paul wrote his Letter to the congregation at Philippi, he addressed it to “all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, including the overseers and deacons” (Philippians 1:1). This verse (with others from the New Testament) indicate that when completely and ...read more

  • Who Was Cain's Wife?

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Sep 6, 2015
     | 3,900 views

    Some have adopted the viewpoint that Cain's wife belonged to a separate group of people with little or no connection with Adam and Eve. However, the Gospel message requires that all have descended from Adam and Eve..

    Why is it important? Many skeptics have claimed that, for Cain to find a wife, there must have been other ‘races’ of people on the Earth who were not descendants of Adam and Eve. To many people, this question is a stumbling block to accepting the creation account in Genesis and ...read more

  • Can A Christian Use Marijuana?

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Aug 28, 2015
     | 3,638 views

    With the legalization of the recreational use of marijuana, the Christian must evaluate if using pot is an acceptable practice or a sin.

    In those States where the use and sell of Marijuana is illegal, the answer is straightforward. The Christian must abide by the laws of secular government (Romans 13:1-2, 5) which means that the use and sell of Marijuana is clearly prohibited. As our Nation moves closer to the legalization of ...read more

  • Who's Not Ashamed?

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Aug 15, 2015
    based on 1 rating
     | 3,733 views

    When most hear the phrase “not ashamed”, their minds think of the declaration by the Apostle Paul - “I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ." In this study, we focus on two lesser known passages that speak of another person who has said they are “not ashamed”.

    When most students of the New Testament hear the phrase “not ashamed”, their minds think of the famous pronouncement by the Apostle Paul - “I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes; to the Jew first and also ...read more
