    When common arguments about abortion confuse us, let’s listen to what God says and let Him settle the dispute.

    INTRO: Abortion is an emotionally volatile subject. Both sides are moved with passionate zeal to promote their cause. Anti-abortionists know that if abortion is sinful, they must speak out rabidly or bear the guilt of this moral crime against humanity on their own silent hands. At the same time, ...read more

    Adultery is a cruel sin whose pain and destruction strikes twice, both now and in eternity.

    INTRO: Lingering glances. Innocent flirtations. Compromising situations. All of those spell “danger.” Office romances. Out-of-town flings. Secret trysts. All of those spell “disaster.” The more time we spend away from our spouses during the day, the greater the temptation for an illicit affair ...read more

    Life is a precious gift of God. Does that mean we cannot destroy it or that we must hold men accountable for destroying it?

    INTRO: The death penalty receives much criticism from unbelievers and believers. Often those who claim to be Christians oppose it more vehemently. People reach very different conclusions about this subject based on the same principle—the sanctity of human life. Some say that because life is ...read more

    Even though drinking hits home with our families and friends, we must oppose it to stop it from destroying those whom we love.

    INTRO: Do I have to try to impress you with the statistics? You already know them. Even unbelievers are alarmed at the rise in alcoholism, drunk driving, and broken homes. The problem of drinking today is “staggering”. We need to be sympathetic with alcoholics who try to break their addiction, ...read more

    Fornication is not just a sin against another person, it is also a sin against ourselves.

    INTRO: To most people, the word “fornication” means very little. They never hear the word used unless spoken by a preacher, or they stumble across it in the Bible. Therefore, preaching about fornication sometimes does little good because people think we are talking about some other kind of deviant ...read more

    When gambling thrives, someone else suffers! Lost in the glitter of the multimillion dollar winner are all the millions of losers.

    INTRO: Horse racing, lottery, church bingo, casino nights, carnival games, raffles for charity—when it comes to gambling, we’ve got it all! And when it comes to determining the morality of gambling, we have more defenses that confuse the issue than we have convictions that clarify it! A simple ...read more

    When the popular view conflicts with the Bible view, which view should we accept?

    INTRO: Homosexuality is not a new way of living. So why has it come to the forefront of cultural issues in the past generation? Is it true that those who oppose homosexuality are prudes, homophobes, gay-bashers, and self-righteous bigots? I suppose that depends on who you ask. What would you ...read more

    God is color blind. Are you?

    INTRO: Prejudice. Discrimination. Segregation. Racism. Our society cries out against such offenses—as well it should! Prejudice judges a man’s character by his outward appearance. Discrimination deprives a person of the right to have. Segregation deprives a person of the right to belong. ...read more

    When sex is about intimacy in marriage it is beautiful. When it is about lust and lewdness it is tarnished.

    INTRO: Many people who are unfamiliar with the Bible think that it presents sex as an ugly—although necessary—thing for the purpose of procreation. Many Christians who are unfamiliar with the Bible think the same thing. Both are wrong. And both of those misguided perspectives have caused ...read more

    Your life is sacred. It is special. It is a gift of God. Give it a chance.

    INTRO: We don’t deal openly with some social problems. We think they will go away if we ignore them. They don’t go away. Suicide is one such problem. We don’t talk about it often. It is shocking. It leaves us speechless. It leaves us helpless and we don’t have the slightest idea how to deal with ...read more
