Since the late second century A.D., controversy has existed concerning the nature of the Godhead. Is God a solitary person—simply manifested in three forms? Or do three separate personalities exist, each of whom possesses the nature of deity? Is the popular doctrine of the Trinity true or false?
What does death involve? This terminal human experience can be a frightening prospect indeed if one is unprepared for it.
John Clayton has virtually made a career of lecturing most weekends of the year to churches across the country. His knowledge of science is woefully skewed with ideas of evolution; unfortunately, his acquaintance with the Bible is even more deficient.
The ex-president’s high popularity is perplexing in light of his moral failures. This article addresses this paradox.
The Roman Catholic church claims that Jesus Christ gave Peter the authority to bind and loose religious law. Matthew 16:19 is a record of this occasion, they say. Was Peter singled out to become the first pope in this passage?
Was Jesus born in Bethlem or Jerusalem? The Bible teaches it was Bethlehem. The Book of Mormon alleges it was in “the land of Jerusalem.” Examine the evidence for yourself.
Richard Dawkins, one of atheism’s most vocal spokesmen, blames the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001 on “religion.” But the article “misfires” and leaves the Oxford professor in the lurch.
Blasphemy is represented as a horrible sin, but what is it? Have I been guilty of it? Can one obtain pardon for it?
The sacred Scriptures vividly describe those who refuse to have God in their knowledge, indeed, whose senseless hearts are darkened (Romans 1:21, 28). Some of them have even written books.

Are law and love incompatible? Not according to Paul. We fulfill the law of Christ when we love others like Jesus loved us.

We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Often we deceive ourselves, thinking that we can escape immediate consequences. After all, we can change someday — some convenient season. Actually, we can not avoid the destructiveness of habitual sin (Hebrews 3:12-13).
