Who Is the “Natural” Man in 1 Corinthians 2:14?

"Please explain this passage from First Corinthians.'Now the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged' (2:14)." The passage is a difficult one due to the complexity of the phraseology.Moreover, its obscurity has been further shrouded by considerable theological baggage that ... read more »

Follow Christ or Go to Hell

I suppose "The Bliss of Following Jesus," would have been more of a positive title. Or maybe "The Benefits of Discipleship" would have been tactful. There is a time, however, for unmistakable clarity. Let me ask you this: if you have only three months to live without medical intervention, what do you want the doctor to say? If your child ... read more »

Of Fathers and Their Sons

For some strange reason, we Californians start baseball early in the year, even before the pros. Once again, I have dedicated a good portion of my time to coaching my son's team. Last year I coached Matthew, my almost-six-year-old, in T-ball. This year, it's Nicholas' turn. For the second year in a row, Nicholas is the youngest player on his ... read more »

Pascal and Paul

Blaise Pascal was a remarkable scholar of mid-17th century France. Home-schooled by his father (his mother having died when he was three), he showed astounding intellectual skills as a youth. By the time he was twelve, he had figured out the equivalent of many of Euclid's geometrical theories. At nineteen, he invented the first workable calculator. He formulated the "theory ... read more »

The Menace of Radical Preterism

The word "eschatology" derives from the Greek word, eschatos, meaning "last." It has to do with the biblical doctrine of "last" or "end-of-time" things. The term embraces such matters as the return of Christ, the end of the world, the day of judgment, and the resurrection of the dead. One philosophy of eschatology is known as "preterism." The term "preter" ... read more »

The Power of Speech, for Good or Evil

On the first day of Earth's initial week, at some point following a primary creation, the inspired Genesis record declares: "And God said. . . " (Gen. 1:3). This expression is found no fewer than ten times in Genesis 1. The reader is thus introduced to the power of speech. Later the psalmist would write: "He spoke, and it was ... read more »

Some Atheistic Arguments Answered

In establishing the case for the existence of God, we attempt to present clear reasoning that will lead to a rational conclusion, namely, that the universe, mankind, etc., are not self-explanatory. Rather, logical minds must conclude that a Supreme Being exists. In our approach, we are affirming a proposition for which positive evidence exists. Atheism, on the other hand, is ... read more »

Sleep: An Evidence of Divine Design

"And Jehovah God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul" (Gen. 2:7). Presently, God said: "It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make a help meet [suitable] for him" ( Gen. 2:18), Subsequently, "Jehovah God caused a deep sleep ... read more »

The God Who Heals

"I am Jehovah who heals you." It was a remarkable statement. The Hebrew people had been delivered from the bondage of Egypt by the mighty hand of God. On the eastern side of the Red Sea, they wandered into the wilderness of Shur. There, they encountered the "bitter" waters of Marah. But, by a miracle, the waters were made "sweet" ... read more »

A Reflection Upon Three Crosses

Crucifixion was probably the most horrible form of capital punishment ever devised by man. The ancient Persians practiced it (ca. 522 B.C.); for example, when Darius, a Persian ruler, conquered Babylon (the second conquest), he had three thousand leading citizens crucified (Herodotus, The Histories 3.159). Later crucifixion became a mode of Greek execution. Following the destruction of Tyre, Alexander the ... read more »
