  • Daily Praying – Part 4

    (Click here to search for all the posts in this series…) Luke 6.12 Now it came to pass in those days that He (Jesus) went out to the mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God. (NKJV) As we come to God in daily prayer, we ask Him for a deeper, clearer understanding of His nature. To the very best of our ability, we recognize Him as Creator-Lord-King-Master-Sustainer-Judge and Father. We carefully consider just Who it is that we are speaking to and assign to Him the proper honor, respect and fear. Recognizing Him, we realize that it is futile to make any pretense of goodness or righteousness about ourselves. We freely admit our sinfulness to God, humbly asking for His forgiveness, […]

  • Random Thoughts – April 5, 2010

    Which Eternity? I was driving down the road the other day up in the city, and in the distance saw a big building sign that said “Eternity Club”.  I thought, “hmmmm, I wonder if that is one of those new-fangled church names or something.” As I got closer, I realized that the Eternity Club was a…..   stripper bar. I wonder if they have ever thought about which Eternity Club they going to be a part of ? Such a Good Person, Really Have you ever noticed that no matter how bad a person was, after they die, someone talks about what a good person they were, and that the bad behavior “really wasn’t them”. Really? So a guy kills and rapes and steals but that […]

  • Keep The Change

    Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. (NKJV) A Christian’s life should be marked by constant change. No matter what level of discipline, maturity or victory we reach, while living in this sin-cursed world, we will always be far short of being completely Christ-like.Is this a frustrating “dangle the carrot” situation? Hardly. Far from that, it gives us a truly worthy purpose each day and lays in front of us a lifetime of fulfilling work and a bottomless well of potential personal growth. Knowing that there is beneficial, eternally profitable change that we can make in our life […]

    Question:People make fun of me for my faith, and ask me how I can believe in an old, outdated book that is full of errors and lacks credibility. How do I answer them? Answer:Don’t answer them (as a general rule). I didn’t say “don’t respond” but I will tell you that specific question for scoffers is rarely useful.They are blind and the Truth is irrelevant. It’s a distraction… a straw man to keep them from facing God about the real issue: sin. Use the Law (ten commandments) to show them they are sinners; if they become convicted, then show them the solution to sin. Otherwise, it’s all foolish argument with spiritually blind people. You might leave them with one simple challenge if they persist: “prove […]

  • The Great Lie

    Romans 1:25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (NKJV) (Previous devotionals can be found at www.seriousfaith.com)What is the essence of all false religion or lack of religion? It can be summed up as: worshiping the creature instead of the Creator. To accomplish this, the truth is exchanged for “the lie”… what is “the lie”? It is the same lie that is the foundation of all false religion; the same lie that caused Man to fall in the first place; the same lie that is the greatest of lies: YOU CAN BE EQUAL TO GOD. Satan himself introduced “the lie” to mankind: Genesis 3:5 For God knows that […]

    Question:I am brand new to your site. I learned about you through your post on Kayleigh’s web site. I think it was wonderful what you posted for the Freemans. As I was reading some of the comments from those who have donated, I was a little concerned that a few of those who are giving are giving their tithe money. I truly don’t mean to judge, but I also don’t think you mean for people to take their normal money away from their churches, either. I also don’t believe the Freemans would want that. I’m not sure how you want to handle this, if you even want to say anything, because maybe God is leading them in this. What do you think? I honestly want […]

  • A Reader Asks: …

    Question:Can you explain Acts 16:31 “Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved-you and your household”? Answer:First, we know that it does NOT mean that one person is saved because of another person’s belief. Scripturally is overwhelmingly clear on that point, which is the primary reason that infant baptism is a futile practice. So we know that simply having a parent, or the head of household, respond to the Gospel, is not sufficient for the salvation of any other individual, family or not.That leaves us with some options:First, it could mean that because the head of household believes, the other family members are likely to follow in genuine belief as well, due to their influence. It is a great encouragement for parents […]
