Do the Psalms Authorize Instrumental Music in Worship?

"I realize that the law of Moses, which replaced the Patriarchal law, was annulled by Jesus' death on the cross. I further understand that we have the law of Christ today. A favorite argument, however, of those desiring to use musical instruments in worship is to refer to Psalms. Since the Jews referred to the Old Testament in three areas ... read more »

Israel’s Exodus from Egypt

As long as Joseph exercised regal authority in the land of Egypt, the Hebrew people flourished. But when a new king arose, who "knew not Joseph," the lives of the Israelites became "bitter and hard" (Ex. 1:8,14).

Does God Change His Mind?

How does one reconcile those passages which state that God does not change (e.g., Mal. 3:6), with others that seem to suggest that he does alter his course of action?

The BBC’s Theory on the Biblical Plagues

England's major broadcasting facility, the BBC, has just released a TV special in which an attempt was made to establish the case that the biblical plagues, visited upon Egypt during the time of Moses, and the subsequent parting of the Red Sea, were not supernatural phenomena.Rather, it is claimed, the "exodus" events were caused by a volcano that erupted on ... read more »

The Parting of the Red Sea: Miracle or Natural Event?

It is a well-known fact that religious modernists read the Bible through the rose-colored lenses of their own naturalistic presuppositions. Take, for example, the Old Testament narrative regarding Israel's passage through the Red Sea. "And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and Jehovah caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all the night, and ... read more »

1 Thessalonians 1:9 – Conversion – A Turning Process

It is an amazing thing that there are so many people who entertain the notion that conversion to Christ involves merely a warm feeling of trust in Jesus - without any real reformation of lifestyle from evil to good. It must be a comforting dogma, but it is without scriptural substance. The Thessalonicans are a case in point. When confronted ... read more »

Who Is in Control of Death?

Hebrews 7:14 – The Law of Silence

Is the silence of the Scriptures prohibitive? By that we mean, may one improvise in acts of religious devotion in the absence of a specific "you must not ..."? If the New Testament is silent about a specific matter (e.g., the baptizing of infants, the burning of incense, the use of mechanical instruments in worship), may a person pursue that ... read more »
