Giving Up the Sabbath

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. – Exodus 20:8 D.L. Moody: “I honestly believe that this commandment is just as binding today as it ever was. I have talked with men who have said that it has been abrogated, but they have never been able to point to any place in the Bible […]

A Much Needed Rebuke

  The goal of your life must not be a scheme to gain popularity so that you can use it for God. The goal of your life must be to know God better, that you might serve Him more faithfully. – Voddie Baucham Voddie Baucham has delivered here a message that is a tremendously needed, […]

Infallible Witnesses of Redemption

George Whitefield: Many other marks are scattered up and down the scriptures, whereby we may know whether or not we have received the Holy Ghost: such as, "to be carnally minded, is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace."

Yet, before Israel was led out of Egypt, there were some very interesting proposals made by the Pharaoh to Moses. Very interesting indeed. In fact, each time Moses […]

MacArthur To Christians: “Don’t Fornicate with the World”

Here is a message the body of Christ needs to hear over and over again. As compromise of biblical truth continues to give a foothold to the church-growth movements and strategies; as young believers continue to bring the culture of the world – music, circus-like entertainment, etc. – into the life of the church fellowship, […]
