Conducting funerals is one of the most challenging tasks a gospel minister has. Actually, doing funerals is not a part of the preacher's "job description" - as set forth in the New Testament.

Too Late for Tears

Would it ever be too late for a Christian to repent? "Yes." "For ye know," said the Hebrews writer (12:17). You know about Esau and what happened with respect to the birthright and blessing. Esau's example teaches us something about the nature of irreversible consequences, and we must apply the lesson to spiritual things - the eternal inheritance. The inspired ... read more »

What Is Propitiation?

The English "propitiation" is from Latin, meaning "favorable, gracious, kind" or "render favorable." The first attested use of this term is in a Latin translation of the Scriptures.

Some Facts About Death

Death is an unpleasant subject. Unless one is in the "death" business (mortuaries, cemeteries, tombstones, etc.), he doesn't like to talk about it-much less reflect upon his own demise. Death has had a bad reputation throughout human history. It was pronounced as a penalty for Adam's sin in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 2:17), and all human beings (with the ... read more »

The Starbucks Agenda: Want some “theology” with your latte?

Want some twisted "theology" with that early morning steaming latte?

Do Not Sin Against the Children

Jacob's eldest son, Reuben scolded his younger brothers: "Did I not tell you, 'Do not sin against the child'; and you would not listen?"

Reuben's question reflected the ... read more »

Was Christ Mistaken About His Second Coming?

The late Bertrand Russell of Great Britain was a confessed atheist and a bitter opponent of Christianity. He once wrote an essay entitled, Why I Am Not A Christian. A brief portion of that infamous literary (?) production was a blasphemous section subtitled, "Defects in Christ's Teaching." Though Russell actually believed that it was "quite doubtful whether Christ ever existed ... read more »

Satan: Everything You’ve Always Wanted to Know, But Were Afraid To Ask

Is Satan an actual living, personal being? Atheists and their near kinsmen, infidel theologians, say "No." For instance, G. B. Gray, a representative of the liberal persuasion, wrote: "If we would fix more exactly on the origin of the Satan, there is much to be said for Marti's suggestion that he is the personification of the self-accusing conscience of Israel" ... read more »

A Study of Heaven

Is heaven real? If so, how does one know? In spite of bogus claims of having visited heaven, such as that professed by Ellen G. White of Seventh-day Adventist fame (1945, 32ff), no one has died, gone to heaven, and returned to earth to tell of the experience (cf. 2 Corinthians 12:1-10). All we really know about heaven is what ... read more »
