Let Him Slay Me

“Though He slays me yet will I trust in him, and I will maintain my ways before him”Job 13:15

We had all heard the question - “Why do bad things happen to good people?” Why despite their faithfulness and supplications do some saints become ill and die from horrible diseases? Why do so many believers not experience the presence of God, see visions or angels? And why are millions of Christians not prospering financially? - [

Spiritual Degeneration

Many segments of the church have lost their way in the pursuit of false spirituality, with some even turning to the occult

Does the Christian faith I first knew even exist today
? Reviewing how the Pentecostal experience has changed, ironic and disturbing “paradigm shifts” become apparent, and what was once on the fringes, even considered “heretical,” now dominates the contemporary Charismatic Movement, degeneration, not spiritual progress - [Photo by EJ Strat on Unsplash].

Did Jesus Triumph?

Did Jesus triumph and begin his messianic reign at his death and resurrection, or is he waiting for some future event to do so

Did Jesus triumph over his enemies on Calvary? Did he conquer his enemies and begin his reign following his resurrection from the dead? Most of us would answer, “Well, of course, he did!” Yet certain common interpretations, if taken at face value, intentionally or not, deny that he did, that his reign will not commence until his return in glory - [

Some Politicians get a Pass

Why do church leaders excuse lying, adultery, and other serious sins when committed by their political friends and allies?

Early in my Christian walk, I was taught to strive for holiness in every area of life. Sin must not be tolerated in thought, word, or deed. “
Do not evil that good may come!”  As a disciple of Jesus, I was to live “separate” from the fallen world, not physically, but spiritually and morally. His follower must not be “unequally yoked” with sinners - [Photo by tommao wang on Unsplash].

Has Bible Prophecy Failed?

After decades of failed prophetic expectations, it is time for believers to reexamine popular ideas about the “last days.”

Fifty years ago, I was influenced greatly by the bestseller, ‘
The Late Great Planet Earth.’ In it, I read, and rather enthusiastically, how last day prophecies were being fulfilled before my eyes. All the “signs” pointed to me being a member of the “last generation” before the return of Jesus. The Antichrist, Armageddon, and Millennium were all about to unfold on the world scene - [Photo by Agê Barros on Unsplash].
