The Witness of the Spirit, Water and Blood

He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. – I John 5:10 The only basis for saving faith is the testimony of God Himself concerning His Son Jesus […]

A Conversation About Being Saved

A woman with whom I was slightly acquainted approached me recently while I was working in the yard and said, “Can I ask you something?” “Sure,” I replied. She asked, “Do you think I’m a Christian?” { That doesn’t happen every day! } I said “I don’t know.” “Well, I pray all the time,” she […]

Great Chick-fil-A Service in the Face of Stupidity

Nowhere in Scripture are Christians told to ‘go out and convert people’. Nowhere. What we are to do, and be, is witnesses of what Christ has done in our lives. Meet Rachel, she’s the young lady who happened to be recorded by the CFO of a company called Vante out of Tucson. Or, at least […]

The Benefit of Watching A Beheading

I mentioned recently that I had witnessed an online beheading of a professing Christian at the hands of muslims. Please note that I did not say ‘radical’ Islamist. That would be silly and redundant, since all muslims, if they truly believe Islam, are radical. Anyway, and for the record, there was a benefit to watching […]

Christian Rap (and Hip-hop) Is A Lost Cause

Sometimes I think this blog site could literally double, triple, or more in readership, if only I would do one thing: support and promote Christian, “reformed” rap/hip-Hop music and its artists. Maybe not, but maybe. Nah. I can’t do that because there’s something preventing me from doing so, the Bible. The pressure to do so […]

Pray For England

I first met Mike Taylor at the University of Arkansas in 1980. We were both freshmen living in UBC Hall, a Christian dorm run by University Baptist Church (UBC), in Fayetteville Arkansas. I love this guy. Always have. Besides, he has a great last name. Check out his ministry, UK-USA Ministries. Mike and his wife […]

Evangelist vs Pastor-Teacher

What’s the difference between the two? An evangelists deals with proclaiming the Gospel, primarily to unbelievers, and is not one to rely upon for the teaching and edification of the local church. This man is needed to reach the unbelieving world in places where the Gospel has not been preached. A Pastor-Teacher, given the charge […]

On Dressing Well

By Matthew Chancey Clothes are meant to do more than cover nudity. Clothes are your resume’ on a walking billboard. They communicate your worldview. If you dress like a stiff, the faith you communicate is a rigid and legalistic one. If you dress like a slob, the faith you communicate is Gnosticism of a different […]

The Hand of Faith

“The action of faith is in Scripture represented to us not merely by that of the eye; it is also represented by that of the hand. When Scripture speaks of the believing Christian as “apprehending,” or “laying hold on” Christ our Lord, it implies that faith is a hand as well as an eye; that […]

Church, Something’s Got to Change!

The world can get almost anything it wants in the middle of the night, except the Church? Interesting thoughts from pastor Greg Locke:

Gospel Tracts: The Silent Preacher

Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days. – Ecc. 11:1 (ESV) The smallest tract may be the stone in David’s sling. In the hands of Christ it may bring down a giant’s soul. – Robert Murray M`Cheyne Never underestimate the use of Gospel tracts. They have been used […]

The Cries of Christ

I. The Cry of the Witness “And Jesus cried out and said, "Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me.” (John 12:44). Faithful in its testimony and full in its promise. II. The Cry of the Teacher As he said these things, he called out, "He who has ears […]

Stop Lying and Worrying About Your Reputation

The only problem I have with this video is that according to Scripture, our ‘old man’ is dead. Plum dead. Totally. When a Christian sins, it is because he or she chooses to do so. You are responsible, not some dead carcass!! (Romans 6:6-12). Take responsibility for sin. You did it, not some other mysterious […]

Greg Mills: Grace In The Law Of God – The Ninth Commandment

  “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” -Exodus 20:16                  Introduction I. The ninth commandment is one of the most difficult, because man’s sinful nature follows in the footsteps of his father the devil, who was a liar from the beginning. II. The subject of this commandment is our words; the only […]

The Call To Witness – A Sermon By John Calvin

  Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave […]

Tim Conway: Your Life, Witness & Testimony

“What do people see when they watch you go through life? Are you conducting yourself in a way that will honor and glorify Christ as the treasure He is?”

Tim Conway: How To Witness To Professing Christians

“Tim answers a question on “How do I witness to a nominal Christian?” So many of us have friends who profess faith in Christ, yet they are living out Titus 1:16 – profess to know God by denying Him by their works. So how should we go about testify to the Gospel to them?”
