First Principles Part Four: What is Faith?

IT WOULD BE WRONG to say one kingdom principle is greater or more important than another, but I will say these first four we've been discussing are critical to beginning and strengthening our new life in Christ. It is important to identify and defeat the hindrances to living a balanced Christian lifestyle. Watchman Nee wrote, …

“LORD, I Believe. Help My Unbelief.”

WE READ OF JESUS healing a boy with an unclean spirit in Mark 9:14-29. This story provides a valuable lesson regarding faith. Previously, the boy's father brought him to the disciples and they were unable to cast the spirit from the boy. Matthew Henry writes, "The father thought the fault lay in the want of …

The Revelation: Part Three

JESUS CHRIST CONTINUED The Revelation to John with letters to the churches at Thyatira and Sardis. As with the churches at Ephesus, Smyrna, and Pergamum, the letters to Thyatira and Sardis contain warnings that remain relevant today. Churches in John's time were on the decline.

Detractors often argue that it is possible to go through your entire life without committing murder, adultery, rape, theft; without cheating on your taxes or watching porn. I agree. However, to suggest that we have the human capacity …

The Revelation: Part Two

It presents valuable explanations and instructions regarding the Doctrine of "Last Things," or Eschatology—the Christian doctrine concerning what will happen in the final days. When will Christ return? What will happen when He comes back. What has to occur …

I Am Redeemed!

WHAT DOES IT MEAN to be "redeemed?" Sure, I could list theological, psychological, and sociological definitions, and there is nothing wrong with that approach. Definitions help define us. They allow us to compare, analyze, ruminate, consider, relate. We quantify and qualify through definitions. Relative to theology, definitions establish parameters; they provide the comfort of knowing …
