Can the Living Talk To the Dead?

In his informative book, Understanding the New Age, Russell Chandler notes that nearly half (42%) of America's adult population believe they have been in contact with someone who has died (1988). This was up 15% from a survey conducted in 1977. Of course there is nothing new about necromancy (attempting to communicate with the dead); it is almost as old ... read more »

Anointing with Oil – James 5:14

In the book of James, the inspired writer exhorts: "Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and the Lord shall raise him up" (Jas. 5:14, 15). ... read more »

Who Were the Nephilim?

Who were the Nephilim as described in Genesis 6:4? And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose. And Jehovah said, My spirit ... read more »

Larry King Hosts Pat Boone, Max Lucado, and Others

There may be no greater devastation for a parent, or even a grandparent, than to see one of their offspring fatally injured - or nearly so. Our hearts are deeply touched when we observe such anxiety. It is even a greater sadness when loved ones expect a "miracle" in such an instance - only to wait, heart-broken, in vain. From ... read more »

Who Are the Pure in Heart?

"What did Jesus Christ mean when he said, 'Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God?' Does this mean if a person is sincere before the Lord, and tries to keep his mind pure, he will be saved?" As we begin a response to this question, bear in mind this vital truth. No single passage may be ... read more »

Three Views of Self

In one of his compositions, poet John Donne had this phrase: "No man is an island." Whatever the expression meant to him, it contains a general truth. None of us lives an isolated existence. While we see ourselves in a certain light, others may view us quite differently. Our Creator assesses us with absolute accuracy! How We See Ourselves One's ... read more »

Why Couldn’t Jesus Perform Miracles in His Hometown?

Both Matthew and Mark state that Jesus left the region near the sea of Galilee and came "into his own country" (Matthew 13:54; Mark 6:1). Undoubtedly this has reference to the environs of Nazareth, the city in which Christ grew up in the home of Joseph and his mother, Mary. In connection with the Lord's visit to this region Mark ... read more »

The Miraculous Insight of Jesus Christ

The miracles of Christ are proof that he is the Son of God (John 20:31). The Gospel writers record many of the miracles of Jesus, but certainly not all of them (John 20:30; 21:25). Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, collectively relate to us seventeen bodily cures, nine miracles over the laws of nature, six demonic cures, and three resurrections. Additionally, ... read more »

Jesus Christ and the “I Am” Expression

When Christ declared: "Before Abraham was born, I am" (John 8:58), was he referring to the statement in Exodus 3:14, "I am that I am," and therefore identifying himself with the "Jehovah" of that context? This is the question we will explore in this article. In John, chapter eight, there is an animated exchange between the Lord and a certain ... read more »

False Ideas about God

When Paul was in Athens, he declared to certain philosophers (who had gathered together to hear new ideas) that they were ignorant of the true God (Acts 17:23). In our current society, many feel that modern man has intellectually advanced beyond the primitive Greeks. The truth is, a significant segment of our own populous is about as crude in its ... read more »
