  1. Who Is the True Israel of God?   Open in New Window
    I recently read an article in which a noted Christian theologian encouraging Christian churches to celebrate the Passover Seder. His line of argumentation was not we're required to keep Old Testament feasts and festivals but that by observing Passover, Christians can better remember the Jewish foundation as well as help foster improved Jewish-Christian relations. Strikingly absent from this article were any biblical references to Christís fulfillment of the old covenant feasts and festivals. by Nick Batzig

  2. Who are the 144,000 in Revelation 7   Open in New Window
    Who are the 144,000 in Revelation 7 and 14? Do they refer to Jewish evangelists who live during the seven years of Tribulation as popular commentaries suggests? No. In short, whatever else may be said about the 144,000, we can be sure that it speaks of the redeemed from "all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues" (v. 9) as being united in one covenant body or one church,ónamely the universal invisible church of Christ.

  3. Modern Religion   Open in New Window
    They tell us that God wants to do many things for us and with us that we will not let him do. We are told that Christ died for all the people of the world in an attempt to redeem and save all men; but that all are not saved. Modern religion tells us that the Holy Spirit of God calls all men alike to Christ; but some men resist the power of his grace, while others allow him to have his way. by Don Fortner

  4. What is Christless Christianity   Open in New Window
    Christless Christianity is a term coined by author Michael Horton in his book by the same name. In Christless Christianity: The Alternative Gospel of the American Church, Horton argues that the American church is heading for a version of Christianity that eagerly accepts Christís offer of salvation but considers it to be just another benefit in a life spent pursuing the American Dream. by GotQuestions.org

  5. Reflections on Race and Racism   Open in New Window
    If race is a fabrication of the sinful imagination, there seems to be one fundamental and necessary response. Deal with it as the lie it is. Stop acting as though race is real. Stop treating and judging people according to what is false. When it comes to race and racism, Reformed churches must reflect on their history soberly and work toward a better future seriously. May the Lord grant us much humility, charity, and wisdom. by David VanDrunen

  6. A Christian Approach to the News Media   Open in New Window
    Considering Biblical cautions, how should we approach the news? Critical analysis is useful and necessary, but inadequate if it only develops scepticism in viewers, listeners and readers. Even sceptics need to recognise that enjoyment, enlightenment, insight and delight may come to us through the media. Though objectivity may be elusive, news reports reveal scandals and problems that need to be corrected and punished. There is nothi9ng wrong with taking part in that striving for a better world. by Klaas-Jan Gunnink

  7. Biblical Antidotes to Racism Ė Part 2   Open in New Window
    If Christ is all in our unity, being like Christ must be our priority if we must maintain the unity of the Spirit. And how are we to maintain this unity? Paul lays down the method here in Colossians 3 from verse 12 through to verse 17. We are to put on the fruit of the Spirit, and we are to let the word of Christ dwell in us richly. We are to fight racist tendencies with mercy, and kindness, humility and meekness and longsuffering. by Ronald Kalifungwa

  8. Biblical Antidotes to Racism Ė Part 1   Open in New Window
    If biblical principles are clear on the dignity of the human race, how has the human race found herself in a position where she is indulging in and encouraging racism? The answer is not hard to imagine. Behind all racist thinking and action is Satan. The devil is intent upon destroying the beauty that God created in humanity. The other reason why racism rears its ugly head is the presence of sin in our hearts. by Ronald Kalifungwa

  9. All One in Christ   Open in New Window
    There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in Christ Jesus (Gal. 3:28). Recorded in the above verse of scripture is a statement, made by the Apostle Paul, about certain people. To gain a clear understanding of this statement it is necessary to identify the people to whom the Apostle was referring. They are described as being 'in Christ Jesus.' by Llewelyn Jones

  10. Responding to Divine Absence   Open in New Window
    Having discussed the phenomenon of divine absence, and given some account of that phenomenon, we are now in a place to respond to divine absence in its contemporary form. If the argument of my previous essay has purchase, then many people within the late modern West will inevitably tend to have some doubts about Godís obviousness. Unsurprisingly, this does not seem an ideal state of affairs to most souls. Doubt is sometimes romanticized, especially by those whom it has led into unbelief or by skeptics who find refuge from making responsible judgments through conveniently deployed

  11. The Phenomenon of Divine Absence   Open in New Window
    Most Christians who enjoy a healthy life of the mind have some acquaintance with doubt. It is not always very pronounced, and perhaps some get over it entirely. Much of our problem has to do with the very manner in which we define "God" and the question of His "existence." Nevertheless, the problem is not just an intellectual but a habitual one. Correcting our definition of the divine nature is not the same thing as correcting our imaginative habits when we think of God or His deeds. by Joseph Minich (Ph.D)

  12. Effectual Calling   Open in New Window
    The little deals we like to think weíve made when weíre in trouble, the time spent on Christian Disciplines that are seen later as a waste when we donít get that shiny new thing we desired. Effectual Calling is ground zero for detonating that understanding of life and relationship. Put simply, rather than gaining all we can while investing as little as possible, we gain everything we could have ever hoped for while contributing absolutely zero to the relationship. by Pastor Joel Wood

  13. The Three Faces of Love: A Pattern for Christian Marriage   Open in New Window
    Agape is the love that causes God to seek and redeem lost, deformed and rebellious sinners who can give Him nothing. In some ways it is the opposite of eros. While eros is love for that one special person, agape is love that goes to everyone. Agape flows not from need but from fulness or sufficiency. It is the love of the Good Samaritan in stopping to save a man who might have spit on him if awake. It is Jesusí washing the disciplesí feet. Agape empties itself for the sake of another. by Dan Doriani

  14. The Deceitfulness of Sin   Open in New Window
    It is rightly called the deceitfulness of sin because it deceives under the appearance of the good. This phrase "the deceitfulness of sin" ought to be understood in a much wider sense, so that the term includes even one's own righteousness and wisdom (Martin Luther). I can relate disturbingly well with what Luther writes. by Todd Pruitt

  15. Karl Barthís Response to Trumpkins: Making Space for God   Open in New Window
    I donít think evangelicals feel emboldened which is why they are desperate. But they want to have that Ďfeelingí of the Ďabsolute selfí again; and for them Trump can deliver this golden age and feeling of self-worth once again providing for cultural power that the moral majority has seemingly lost in these last days. We ought to take Barthís reading of the German society to heart and as evangelicals divorce ourselves from nationalist longings so that we are able to have space for the Word of God to break into our lives in ever afresh and new ways; if we take this critique to heart I am sure that Trump, or Clinton,will no longer be viable alternatives for evangelical Christians. by Bobby Grow

  16. Evangelicals, Trump, and Finding the Path of Faith   Open in New Window
    Evangelical Christians have been strong supporters of President Trump. The reason is clear: Trump gives them things they want, most importantly, conservative Supreme Court justices. These justices may one day reverse Roe v. Wade. But the Lordís work in the Lordís way is the Lordís work in the power of the Spirit and not in the power of the flesh. Is it not amazing: though we know the power of the Holy Spirit can be ours, we still adopt the worldís wisdom, trust its forms of publicity, its noise and imitate its ways of manipulation!

  17. 10 Common but Illegitimate Reasons to Divorce   Open in New Window
    It is clear in the Bible that Godís intention for marriage is that it remain in effect until the death of one spouse. Jim Newheiser helpfully outlines a number of these in his book Marriage, Divorce, and Remarriage: Critical Questions and Answers. Here are 10 common but illegitimate reasons to divorce. by Tim Challies

  18. The Rise of Counterfeit Christianity   Open in New Window
    We read in Mark 13:21-23, 'And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: for false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.' (Mark 13:21-23) Rev Wilbur G Bruinsma

  19. Narcissism and the War on Truth   Open in New Window
    We live in the age of rampant truth distortion. In politics, itís called "spin." In advertising, itís called fair marketing strategy. Deceptive verbiage and misleading claims are made all the time. There are so many ways to deceive. As Christians we should have the utmost reverence for the truth for it can truly set you free. We must be ever mindful of humankindís incredible capacity to deceive, including oneself. by Dr. George Simon

  20. Kicking Against The Pricks   Open in New Window
    Let me say to thee, sinner, yield thy heart to the goadings of divine love, for 'it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.' Oh, think not that the Saviourís blood will be unable to cleanse thee. Not thy worthiness, but thine unworthiness attracts his attention; not thy strength, but thy weakness; not thy riches, but thy poverty. by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
