Can Politicians Fix Our Problems?

Another election season is in full swing. Americans are inundated with commercials, yard signs, billboards, brochures, and flyers promoting candidates for local, state, and federal offices. Such messages either promise to fix societal, fiscal, ecological, and moral problems, or they contain negative accusations against opposing candidates—why he or she is unfit for public office. Some candidates cater to the conservative and evangelical voting bloc opposing abortion, euthanasia, same-gender unions, and the like. Other candidates opt for a partial or total secular base of support.

Life After Death as Revealed in the Word of God

Is there a life after death? Did anyone ever come back from the dead to tell us? Yes, the Lord Jesus Christ, who arose from the dead, is the One who came back and who knows. The best proven fact in history is the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Some years ago, two eminent legal authorities of England, Lord Lyttleton and Gilbert West, were unbelievers. They held that the truthfulness of Christianity rested upon two foundations—first, the resurrection of Christ, and second, the conversion of the apostle Paul.

Methods Matter! A Consideration of Paul's Approach to Evangelism

One cannot dwell within Christian circles for long without hearing the mantra that our “message must never change, but our methods must always be changing” if we are to effectively minister to our contemporary culture. To most, this entails a pragmatic approach to reaching the lost and keeping converts within the walls of a particular local church.

Universal Truth for All People

The popular notion today is that Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection—the essence of Christianity—may be efficacious (i.e., applicable and beneficial) for us as Christians, but we cannot limit God’s love and grace. The argument goes something like this: Although we as Christians believe we know the truth, God may be working in another way with another person, religion, or group of people.

Evangelism as God Sees It

by Dr. Alva J. McClain (1888-1968)

It may surprise some readers that the English word evangelism does not occur once in the Authorized Version. And even its related term evangelist occurs but three times (Acts 21:8; Ephesians 4:11; 2 Timothy 4:5). But these few passages do not convey a fraction of the large place given in the Word of God to what has been named “evangelism.” To discover this, one must examine the Greek term.
