  • The Indwelling Of The Holy Spirit Series

    Contributed by Mitch Davis on Jun 20, 2007
    based on 8 ratings

    When coming across scriptures that cannot be rationalized man has a tendency to NOT accept what the Bible explicitly reveals. Note the contrast of wisdom between God and man when dealing with the personal indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Because Christians live in the flesh it is no wonder that we have difficulty understanding the things of the spirit. 1. The Bible teaches that the natural man cannot more

  • The Deceptive Power Of Compromise

    Contributed by Don Baggett on Nov 9, 2007
    based on 4 ratings

    When a Christian compromises his godly values and rationalizes that the ends justify the means, he opens the door to all kinds of trouble, not only in his own life, but in the lives of many others.

    Compromise is not always bad. I heard one preacher say that he torn the word compromise out of his dictionary. I thought, “You must not be married!” However, if we compromise our godly values, we open the door for trouble in our lives. This is true because God loves us, and when we start in more

    An army moves on it's stomach. Nutrition provides energy for the fight ahead and so it is with the Christian army.

    October 01, 2016 There is an old saying: “An army marches on its stomach” – if an army doesn’t feed its men it’s not going anywhere. Without food the troops can’t march, can’t maneuver, and they can’t fight. During WWII, the US tried solving this issue with “K rations”, which consisted of more

    based on 40 ratings

    This series is based on A. M. Hills book "Holiness in the Book of Romans."

    Everything we have looked at over the last several weeks has led us to this point. Paul has been in realm of theory and theology. Now he gets practical. What does all this mean in everyday life? Read Romans 12:1-2. In v. 1 we have the word “therefore.” When you see that word you have to ask, more
