    The Sin of the Devil

    “Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods: for in the thing wherein they dealt proudly he was above them.” (Exodus 18:11) This is the first mention in the Bible of the sin of pride, and it appropriately refers to the primeval sin of the “gods”—that is, the supposed deities of the heathen. Led by Lucifer, a great host of th... More...View the full article

    Why Did Christ Die?

    “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) This passage is often considered the defining passage of the gospel, stating the great truth that Christ died for o...

  3. STAR FOOTBALLERS SAY IT IS A RELIGION (Friday Church News Notes, July s20, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Brazilian star Pelé, who was voted the greatest footballer of all time, says, “Football is like a religion to me. I worship the ball and treat it like a god” (“Football the universal Religion?” BBC, Jul. 13, 2018). Diego Maradona, voted fifth greatest, agrees. “[F]ootball isn’t a game, nor a sport; it’s a religion.” Scottish footballer and manager Bill Shankly says, “Some people think football’s a matter of life and death. I can assure them it is much more serious than that.” Psychology Today observes that “as religious attendance rates have dropped off in recent decades, interest in sport spectatorship has soared” (“Is Sport a Religion,” Psychology Today , Nov. 11, 2009). BBC recently said, “Football... Read More View the full article
  4. “. . . and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.” (1 John 1:3) One marvelous reason for which God has adopted us (Ephesians 1:5), indeed part of the very “calling” to become God’s children, is to fellowship (1 Corinthian... More...View the full article
  5. It has been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and I have no doubt that more people have been influenced to believe in evolution by artwork than by words. From its inception, Darwinian evolution has been popularized by art. Lying art. THE HORSE SERIES - Most people living during the past 100 years have seen the horse series, which depicts the supposed “evolution” of the horse from a small dog-like creature with four toes to a larger three-toed “horse” to the modern one-toed creature that cowboys and Indians ride in western movies. It must be true, because the chart says so! But as we have seen in this series on “Lying Evolutionary Art,” iconic evolutionary charts often tell lies, and this one tells a whopper. The horse series was developed by Othniel Marsh who discovered 30 different kinds of supposed fossil horses in Wyoming and Nebraska in the 1870s. In 1879, he arranged these in an evolutionary sequence and put them on display at Yale.. Read More View the full article
  6. “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31) This is one of the best-loved promises of the Bible, for it is easy to grow weary and faint in our mortal bodies, even when doing the work of the Lord. The answer, we are told,... More...View the full article

In the book New Guide to Science , Isaac Asimov devoted a small section to proving Darwinian evolution and his sole evidence was the peppered moth. Stephen Jay Gould also used the peppered moth as one of the supposed indisputable.. Read More View the full article

    Thine, O Lord

    “Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.” (1 Chronicles 29:11) This is one of the great doxologies of Scripture, originally a part of King David’s prayer at the time of So...

    The First Love

    “Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17:24) This is the very heart of the moving prayer of the Lord Jesus Christ in the upper room before His arrest and crucifixion. As we hear Him pray, we are translated ... More...View the full article

    Strive Not About Words

    “Of these things put them in rememberance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.” (2 Timothy 2:14) This command emphasizes the necessity to avoid “word fights.” The apostle Paul has much to say about this in other passages. “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of y...

    No Darkness at All

    “. . . in him is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5) Some have suggested that the gospel message is the most important truth in the Bible—and, perhaps, from a temporal human standpoint it may well be. However, there is another, more frequent message throughout all of Scripture here summarized by John: “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all” (... More...View the full article

    Son of Man

    “And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.” (Revelation 14:14) This is the last of some 87 New Testament references (84 in the four gospels, one in Acts, none in the epistles, two in Revelation) to Christ as the Son of man. Here we see the Son ... More...View the full article

    He Became Poor

    “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:9) The doctrine of Christ’s kenosis, or self-emptying, is one of the most amazing of all biblical truths. The extent to which He who was not only “in the form of God&rdqu... More...View the full article
