Why Am I Not a Christian?

Why Am I Not A Christian?

1.    Do I plead the excuse that I do not understand the Bible? “Search the Scriptures.” “If any man will do His will, he shall know of the teaching” (Jn. 5:39; 7:17).

2.    Am I thinking I am good enough now? “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” “Except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God” (Rom. 3:23; Jn. 3:3-5).

Times of Refreshing from the Lord

God has given His obedient children “many great and precious promises” to help us along life’s pilgrim pathway. Faithful believers today need to claim every one of those promises as satanic pressures increase and “evil men and seducers wax worse and worse.” As we seek to labor for our blessed Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in the heat of the day and in the thick of the battle, how important it is to personally experience times of refreshing which only He can give.

Another Gospel

By Rev. C. F. Sheldon

In the Galatian letter, the apostle Paul uses strong language with reference to those who preach a perverted gospel. Paul's name for the gospel committed to him is: "The gospel of the grace of God." It is important that we know the truth, in so far as it is possible, of this great fact; that grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. This gospel of grace is our gospel. It is all that we have to preach; and in such measure as we fail to understand the grace of God, we shall fail to be effective preachers.

The Threats We Face (Part 3) — Threats in the World

Thus far in the series titled “The Threats We Face,” we have considered the threats to godly living that exist within our homes and our churches. In this final installment in the series, we want to briefly consider the threats we face from the “outside” world. As we aspire to live lives that bring glory to God, we are being attacked from every side—including from the culture that exists around us. By way of introduction, let us list and define four particular threats that we face from the world today.

The Threats We Face (Part 2) — Threats in the Home

The importance of the family unit cannot be overemphasized. As Christian families, are we taking the necessary, proactive measures to protect our families against the many threats that exist? Remember, Satan is seeking to destroy you and your loved ones (1 Pet. 5:8)! Satan hates the family unit and wants to do everything possible to dismantle and ruin it, and he has desired to do so since the beginning (Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Lot and his daughters, etc.).
