Special Guest Writer, Patrick Morrison It will come as no surprise to most who know me when I say that I am a sports fan. Especially is this true in regard to high school and collegiate athletics. There is something about sports at these levels that is far more appealing (at least to me) than… [Continue Reading]

J.W. McGarvey was a great gospel preacher in the American Restoration Movement, which we continue today. (Those of us in the Restoration Movement are interested in restoring primitive, New Testament Christianity. Thus, we seek to restore the primitive, apostolic church, about which we read in the New Testament.) In 1893, McGarvey preached a sermon entitled,… [Continue Reading]

Christianity is a historical religion in the strongest sense. Christianity not only occurred a historical phenomenon in the first century, but also certain historical events form the bases for Christian belief (e.g., the creation week of Genesis, the virgin birth, the execution of Christ, the verbal inspiration of the first-century prophets who wrote the original… [Continue Reading]

By Barry Gilreath, Special Guest Writer If you do not know or believe this, then please open a Bible and read these Scriptures:  Romans 5:8-9, 1 John 4:8, and Revelation 1:5. Although, you probably already knew that, didn’t you?  You have heard John 3:16 quoted so many times that you can recite it yourself without… [Continue Reading]

The Bible teaches that God created man on the sixth day of the creation week, and so it is not the case that man descended from apes or ape-like creatures (Genesis 1:26-27). On the other hand, if Darwinian evolution were true, we would expect the paleontological record to have turned up many fossils of “transitional… [Continue Reading]

IS YOUR FAITH JUST A VERBAL COMMITMENT?

Special Guest Writer, Patrick Morrison It will come as no surprise to most who know me when I say that I am a sports fan. Especially is this true in regard to high school and collegiate athletics. There is something about sports at these levels that is far more appealing (at least to me) than […]

The Significance of Jesus’ Bodily Resurrection

Christianity is a historical religion in the strongest sense. Christianity not only occurred a historical phenomenon in the first century, but also certain historical events form the bases for Christian belief (e.g., the creation week of Genesis, the virgin birth, the execution of Christ, the verbal inspiration of the first-century prophets who wrote the original […]

Mending the Pants

I love the story of the two women sitting together mending their husbands’ pants. One woman said, “My husband is so discouraged with the work of the church.” The other woman said, “Why, my husband was saying just the other day how encouraged he was about the work.” Silence again fell over the room as […]

Watch Out for Anger

Anger is not inherently sinful. Observe that God often has been angry with righteous indignation: Deuteronomy 29:27-28. Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against this land, bringing upon it all the curses written in this book, and the Lord uprooted them from their land in anger and fury and great wrath, and cast […]
