  • Too Much Religion In The Wrong Place

    Contributed by Michael Stark on Sep 11, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    Religion is the expression of one's faith put into practice. For many professed Christians, religion is all they have, because they don't have the faith of Christ the Lord. Too much religion will tend to lead us astray. Faith will lead us to Christ.

    “When [John] saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, ‘You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit in keeping with repentance. And do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,’ for I tell you, God more

  • Just Who Is This Jesus?

    Contributed by Charles Wilkerson on Nov 12, 2003
    based on 10 ratings

    A look at the unique claims of Christ

    Pax Romana, Roman peace, held the empire together for centuries. Among it’s dictates was one concerning religion.

  • Two Baptisms And Thanksgiving

    Contributed by Stephen Belokur on Nov 19, 2018

    In Matthew chapter 3 we see John the Baptist speaking of two different baptisms; the baptism of repentance and baptism with the Holy Spirit. Are they the same or are they complimentary?
