2 Samuel

2 Samuel tells the 2nd largest biography of all of the people recorded in the Holy Scriptures that of King David's reign.  Only Jesus of whom it is said that He is the Son of David has a longer biography than that of the one told of David.  David is...

What's Right and What's Wrong?

I'm a devout Christian so this post may turn out to be a controversial one, but it's a question thats been on my mind for almost a year now and only brought it up once. There always will be questions to ask about our Christian faith, and sometimes...

Who The Lost To Reach Out To All The Time ??

A difference between sinners and bible mockers. Sinners repent if they not living out 1 Peter 3:3. Mockers justify why they don't need to live out 1 Peter 3:3-------------Matthew 7:6. Sinners repent if they not living out John 3:5. Mockers...

What denomination are you?

The question "What denomination are you?" is often a red herring away from the real issues at hand as denominations are not really what counts in front of God's eyes so much as it is the entirety of His Church that God is concerned about regardless of...

Who do you Love most?

Do we sometimes have words or concepts that mask who we love? Have you ever wondered how God could seem so cruel to His own Son? Please read Matthew 10:39 Has it ever occurred to you that the very thing you think of as life or accomplishment...

Was our first God a man? Should our last be as well?

Was our first God a man? Should our last be as well? In reading a bit of history, you will find that the ancient men of power labeled themselves as Gods. Their progeny were called sons of God. I am not clear as to why Emperors and Kings did this....

Salvation and Works

Salvation needs to be divided into three subparts before any adequate conversation can take place on its relationship to works.  The New Testament speaks of three different types of salvation.  The first step is justification before God frequently...

1 Samuel

1 Samuel is one of the most interesting books for me as it reminds me so much of the histories of Livy and of Polybius.  It is the story of the formation of the Kingdom of Israel after hundreds of years of being ruled by the Judges.  I think that one...

Jesus' Bad Behavior

There are a lot of Christians who like to go around warning people not to be too radical, and not to be so sharp when they go around talking to people.  I wonder what these people would say to Jesus.  I wonder what kind of advice they would give Him. ...

Is Logos In Your Belief?

About 300 B.C., a man named Zeno, his philosophy was named Stoicism, after the place where he taught it. His teaching and that of his successors was, like Socrates, more concerned with human conduct than with the nature of the universe. He and his...

Ruth

Ruth is one of the books that I always enjoy reading.  In part I like it because it is short and if I am ever looking for a book that I can read in less than 15 minutes than it is a good book to flip to.  Ruth is also one of my favorite girl power...

How far does your security reach?

Is it possible that the security you have is not enough for daily life? Could there be a prophecy about security for your path? Please read Micah 5:4 This chapter is called "A promised ruler from Bethlehem." Vs. 4 "He will stand and...

Judges

Judges is one of my favorite books because of the diversity of stories that are recorded in it.  From Samson, to Ehud, to the First Israeli Civil War there is a lot of action in Judges and there are some pretty detailed battle scenes in it which made...

Apostates have the hottest place in Hell

According to the Bible apostates, those who leave the Christian faith, will enter into the hottest pits of Hell.  Several different passages of Scripture attest to this: 2 Peter 2:20-21 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world...

Jesus on Money

Jesus was very clear about money and wealth. He did not approve. Not one iota. For Jesus one could either serve god or one could serve mammon, but not both (Matthew 6:24). Jesus therefore unsurprisingly asserted that it is impossible for a rich man to...

kulturist no.37

Yesterday,27 March was Census Day here in the Northwestern Maritime Province of Greater Europa(formerly Great Britain).This ten-yearly,wasteful and bureaucratically pyrrhic exercise,has for 2011 been contracted out to a subsidiary of Lockheed(USA),the...

Mathew 6 (Bible Study)

   “Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. 2 When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to...

What is your foundation?

If a foundation of a building is bad can any of it be good? Could it be that many build on a foundation that is based on their efforst and not based on Jesus? Please read 1 Corinthians 3:10-15 What does it mean to have a foundation of Jesus...

What if Heaven was Never Promise?

What if heaven was never promise to us? This is a question I would like to challenge you all to think about.  A lot of times we put so much time in to what we do for God thinking that if we do this we will go to heaven. Well, I want to ask you, what...

Joshua

Singing the song "Our God" by Chris Tomlin http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlA5IDnpGhc always reminds me of the book of Joshua.  The idea that our God is greater, our God is stronger and awesome in power seems to just flow out of every page of the book...

What enemies can you hate?

Is it possible that there is more than one type of enemy mentioned in the Bible? Is it possible that love sometimes kills things? Please read Exodus 15:1-11 So there they were singing about the great deliverance that God had just performed...

Are you listening to idiots?

Who do you listen to? Do you get medical advice from a car salesman? Do you get directions from the blind? Are you seeking spiritual guidance from a Lover or a fake judge? Please read John 12:44-48 Who has “cried out” here? Vs. 47...

Deuteronomy

For those reading through the Bible, for those of us who have made it passed Numbers and have gotten to Deuteronomy it is natural for almost everyone reading the book to say, "Haven't I read this before?"  And the answer is yes.  The name Deuteronomy...
