The Curse of False Gospels

Galatians 1:8, But even if we or an angel from Heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. The apostles, commissioned by Christ’s authority to baptise and teach with the direction of the Holy Spirit, have handed down to the Church the pure Gospel. Any…

We Are All Equal

Romans 3:23, For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. No one can say he is better than another person. I say this not to preach a message of equality—as is the liberal way—but to proclaim a deep theological truth about the reality of our human condition. We are all equal before…

Godly Integrity

Actually, the opposite is true. Church is required because you’re Christian! If you’re not Christian, obviously church isn’t required. After all, why would an unbeliever…

The Rainbow Promise

As you’re reading this, keep at the forefront of your mind: What is the meaning of the rainbow so far as the covenant of Christ is concerned? A little bit of exposition: after Cain killed his brother Abel, there were two lines—Cain and Seth. Cain’s line was called the sons of man, and Seth’s line…
