  • 1. No Other Doctrine-Intro To I Tim

    Contributed on Mar 29, 2021

    It is just a good principle of biblical interpretation to keep in mind that nothing ought to be accepted as Christian doctrine if it contradicts what is taught by Paul.

    The Apostle Paul has always been one of the most loved and most hated of men. Thousands of books have been written about him, and many of them seek to blacken his name and cause men to despise him. For many he is too stern and narrow minded. He tries to pressure people into his own mold. He tells more

  • 2. Revelation Is Sufficient

    Contributed on Mar 29, 2021

    You need to see this truth that the greatest problems of the church have always been caused by Christians and not unbelievers. Heresy and false teaching, and controversies of all kinds that have hindered the work of Christ have come about by God's own people,

    An English boy went into a store to get change for a sovereign, and the clerk asked him if it was good. The boy said, "Certainly it is good. I saw my father make it just this morning." The clerk, of course, refused to take it. Money, like truth, has the shadow of suspicion cast across more

  • 3. The End Is Love

    Contributed on Mar 29, 2021

    Paul urges them to make love the primary goal of their ministry. He then gives the three means necessary to arrive at this goal. They are a pure heart, a good conscience, and a genuine faith.

    Someone has said, "You can never win in the game of life if you don't know where the goal posts are." You can't win in any game if you don't have a goal. Great men in every walk of life have been those with a goal, and a determination to reach it. It is difficult to more

  • 4. Law And Gospel

    Contributed on Mar 29, 2021

    A knife is good for cutting your meat, but bad for cleaning your eyes and ears. Every good thing can be used in a way that is improper, and then it become harmful and dangerous, and so it is with the law.

    There is mystery enough in life without us adding unnecessary mysteries of our own making. For example, like the woman who evicted a man from her boarding house, and when she was asked why she did it she said, "Something mysterious is going on when a man hangs his hat over the key hole every more

  • 5. Law And Grace

    Contributed on Mar 29, 2021

    The law of grace, the law of liberty, the law of love of the New Testament is the law that must distinguish the Christian from the world. Jesus took the whole law and summed it up in loving God and our neighbor.

    The new bride said to her husband, "I took the recipe for that cake you are eating out of my cookbook." "Good," responded the husband, "It never should have been put in there in the first place." Some feel this same way about the law being in the Bible. They see it more

  • 6. Patriotic In Prayer

    Contributed on Mar 30, 2021

    We need to remember that the man on the throne when Paul wrote this was none other than Nero, who was the most anti-Christian leader we can imagine. But Paul is urging Christians to pray for him, and Paul prayed for this man who would soon order the taking of his own life.

    Paul was a man of authority who respected the authority of others. In Acts 23 it is recorded that he was struck on the mouth, and he began to rebuke the one who did it. Those who were near by asked, "Would you revile God's high priest?" Paul answered, "I did not know brethren more

  • 7. The Atonement

    Contributed on Mar 30, 2021

    Both Calvin and Arminius agree that only those who come to knowledge of truth can be saved, but Calvin says many do not come because they are not of the elect. Arminius says that many do not come because they do not hear or do not respond to the truth when they do hear

    One of the most often heard statements is that I never argue about politics and religion. The motive behind this is often a legitimate desire to avoid needless controversy that only arouses emotion but solves nothing. To avoid controversy, however, ought never be the goal of the Christian, for more

  • 8. Learning From Youth

    Contributed on Mar 30, 2021

    The Bible honors both the old and the young. God sees great potential in both, and He has used both marvelously time and time again to accomplish His will in history.

    A Sunday school teacher was telling her class of girls about how the children of Israel carried things out of Egypt, and of how the children of Israel carried the Tabernacle in the wilderness, and of how the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea, and of how the children of Israel built the more

  • 9. The Paradox Of Money

    Contributed on Mar 30, 2021

    It is hard to say anything about money, either negative or positive, that cannot be demonstrated to be a valid statement.

    Someone said, life is an everlasting struggle to keep money coming in, and teeth, hair, and vital organs from coming out. Few have known this better than General Ulysses S. Grant. He led the armies of the North to victory in the Civil War, and was twice elected president of the United States. He more

  • 10. The Love Of Money

    Contributed on Mar 30, 2021

    It is plain to see that money is an easy god to love, and the worshipper of it can easily win converts to it. It is likely the most popular of all the religions of the world, even though it is never listed among the world religions.

    When a Mr. Blodgett won 25 thousand dollars on a TV program the master of ceremonies asked him what he was going to do with the money. He replied, "It will probably all go to charity." The audience broke into a tremendous round of applause while the band played for he's a jolly good more
