  • I’m Just a Lowly Brotha’ From Anotha’ Mutha’

    James 1:9-11 – Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away. For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits. (NKJV; emphasis mine) I love this verse. It turns our whole world on it’s head. The lowly person exalted, the rich humbled. That’s not some class warfare statement, it’s a statement about people having an eternal perspective on things and realizing that in eternity, what makes people of high status on this earth means nothing, and what forces people to low status […]

  • Consider the Love

    Psalms 8. 3-5 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.Stop. Earnestly consider with me for a few moments what great and wondrous love God has shown to us as His children.Job 37. 14 “Listen to this, O Job; Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.Consider the love of God that creates us, draws us, empowers us, secures us and blesses us… then rewards us as if we did this by our own strength […]

    Question:With the war going on, I was wondering if it was right to be in the military since the Bible says not to kill. As a Christian, can I put myself in that situation? Answer:Answering the question about killing still does not answer the question about military service, because most people who serve in the military are never called on to kill anyone (even though it could be argued that they “support” killing).There are actually several questions within your question but the one I want to address first (then conclude by answering yours directly) is this:What kind of “killing” does the 6th Commandment (“thou shalt not kill”) prohibit? Are there different kinds of “killing”?Let’s start with the latter. Consider these types of “taking a life”:A […]

  • Knowing the Will of God -Questions – Part 8

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) 1 John 2:17 – And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever. (NKJV)I wanted to wrap up the series on “Knowing the Will of God” by giving you a full summary of the series, along with a couple of closing questions. When trying to determine God’s will: First off, does God’s Word contain a plain and direct answer to your question or circumstance? You have to diligently and regularly search God’s Word and do the hard work of finding out God’s revealed, written Word (2Tim 2.15; Acts 17.11) If you find a direct and clear answer, then it simply boils down […]

  • The Greek Alphabet

    This lesson was complied from unknown sources on the Internet. It is not an original lesson. This table gives the Greek letters, their names, equivalent English letters, and tips for pronouncing those letters which are pronounced differently from the equivalent English letters. Sigma (s, V):There are two forms for the letter Sigma. When written at the end of a word, it is written like this: V. If it occurs anywhere else, it is written like this: s. Upsilon (u):In the above table, we suggest that you pronounce this letter like “u” in “put”. The preferred pronunciation is actually more like the German “ü” as in “Brücke”, or like the French “u” as in “tu”. If you do not speak German or French, don’t worry about […]

    Question:We teach a college age Bible Study. One of the girls asked this: If a girl leads a friend to Christ, and the new Christian wants to be baptized, could the girl be the one to baptize her friend? I think I know how I am going to answer her, but I would love to pick your brain for any Biblical insight you have. Thanks. Answer: There is absolutely no prohibition in the Bible about any believer baptizing a new convert. While I have heard much teaching and even been told directly that only those in “authority” can do things like baptize or preach, this is simply man’s traditions creeping into New Testament Christianity. The whole idea of there being a separate class of “lay” […]

  • Question: When Did God Create Angels?

    Question: Brent, when did God create the angels where is it in the Bible? – – – – – – – – – The Bible doesn’t say specifically. We can safely say it was before OUR physical universe was created because Job tells us: Job 38:4-7 (emphasis mine): Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation? Tell me, if you understand. Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it? On what were its footings set, or who laid its cornerstone — while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy? We might pass that off as poetic language from a human, but since the Bible is inspired and these words are directly attributed […]
