LISTENING TO THE MASTER'S VOICE
One of the first exposes of the beliefs of our future ministers was made by Redbook magazine in August of 1961. The publishers hired one of the top pollsters in the nation to survey a full representation of our seminaries which are supposedly preparing men for

INFALLIBLE AND INERRANT
For practical purposes the words infallible and inerrant are interchangeable. When we apply them to the Bible, what we are saying is that only those who accept as from God all that Scripture proves to tell us, promise us, or require of us, can ever fully please him. Both

THE DEAD LETTERS
Quote: Phillip Brooks:
The Bible is like a telescope. If a man looks through his telescope he sees worlds beyond; but if he looks at his telescope, he does not see anything but that.
The Bible is a thing to be looked through to see that

GALILEO AND THE CHURCH
Many of us have heard about the conflict between Galileo and the church of his day. The Church doctrine of that day taught that the sun revolved around the earth. But Galileo discovered that that wasn’t true--it was the earth that revolved around the sun. The Church didn’t

BIBLE IS ALL ABOUT JESUS
The university library in Kansas is home to a very unusual Bible. At first it looks very ordinary, but when the gilt edges are slightly parted, it reveals a picture of Christ with his disciples in the upper room. Underneath the picture are the words; "It is myself,

THE BORN-AGAIN VASE
A number of years ago I had the opportunity to tour the Villeroy and Boch porcelain factory in Torgau, Germany. Porcelain is one of the most beautiful and enduring things that human beings can make. Even today much of what we know about ancient cultures comes from what they

PENNIES FROM HEAVEN
Many of the farms in the state of Nebraska are right on the edge of the fertile plains that receive enough rainfall to produce abundant crops. Some years the yields can be a little lower simply because they are not blessed with as much rain as other farmers. Being so

PEALE AND PAUL
Many of you are familiar with Norman Vincent Peale’s book, The Power of Positive Living. It’s a good book. It won’t get you to heaven, but it will really help you approach life with the right kind of outlook.
Dr. Vance Havner was asked one time to compare the writings of

THE MICROSCOPE AND THE BIBLE
Many years ago, while on a visit to America, a wealthy Chinese businessman was fascinated by a powerful microscope. Looking through its lens to study crystals and the petals of flowers, he was amazed at their beauty and detail. So he decided to purchase one of these

ALLOW THE WORD TO DISTURB YOU
"We need to repent of the haughty way in which we sometimes stand in judgment upon Scripture and must learn to sit humbly under its judgment instead. If we come to Scripture with our minds made up, expecting to hear from it only an echo of our own thoughts and
History of Israel stands as a witness...
About 300 years ago, the King of Sweden was having personal doubts about God’s existence and the Bible's divine nature. He called for Count Von Zinzendorf, who was the bishop of the Moravian Church, to provide evidence about God’s existence and Divine

THE BIBLE IS LIKE AN IPOD
Several years ago I purchased an iPod, and at first I was delighted to hear music. I can listen to music for literally hours upon hours without having to flip a tape or put in another CD.
But then one day I noticed the little booklet that was in the box it came

Boat Without Oars
One day I was goofing off with a friend at the lake shore and we found a boat. It was a sixteen foot long metal tub with no identifying marks on it. The thing had apparently come loose from its moorings somewhere around the lake and come up against the eastern shore.

GRAHAM'S FLAME IN HIS HAND
Billy Graham said this,
"When I was a young biblical study major in college, I had questions that many young believers have. I struggled with what I thought were inconsistencies in the word of God, and therefore I had little power in my ministry. My anointing was

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS
Debbie's laptop broke several months ago, causing some frustration. We couldn't afford right now to put it in the shop, so we decided to attempt repair. We found a hard drive for really a great price, so we purchased and installed it into the drive bay.

WHO TOLD YOU IT'S THE WORD OF GOD?
A young woman who was soundly converted immediately began to read her Bible. A friend who disbelieved the Scriptures and took delight in ridiculing them asked her, "Why do you spend so much time reading a book like that?"
