What Is Truth?

by admin

WHAT IS TRUTH? Mike Johnson  What is truth?  This question is important.  Pilate asked it at Jesus’ trial in connection with the accusation made that Jesus was a king in a civil sense and thus a rival.  It seems he asked it with scorn rather than with a quest for knowledge. Regardless, this question is […]

The Consistency of Truth

by admin

THE CONSISTENCY OF TRUTH Mike Johnson Truth is always consistent.  Truth does not contradict itself.  Thus, if the Bible is “truth,” there will be no contradictions in it. Sometimes people say, “You can prove anything by the Bible.”  This statement is degrading to the Bible, and it reflects on the integrity of God.  If it […]

The Importance of Biblical Teaching

by admin

How to Not Have God (II John 9-11) Mike Johnson 2 John 9-11 says, “Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, […]

ABIDE IN THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST Mike Johnson Consider a warning found in II John 9-11. These verses say, “Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and […]

Looking Into God’s Mirror

by admin

Looking Into God’s Mirror (James 1:22-25) Mike Johnson Mirrors are everywhere.  Most bathrooms have a mirror.  They also may be strategically placed in various places in a house.  We see them in stores, they are in our automobiles,  and a woman will often carry a mirror in her purse.  It is not usually difficult to […]

by admin

More Valuable Than Gold (Psalm 19:10) Mike Johnson Psalm 19:10 (thought to be written by David) says the Word of God is “… more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.” (NASB) Wealth, whether in the form of gold or some other type of […]

GOD’S WORD IS ENDURING Mike Johnson 1 Peter 1:22-25 says, “Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and […]

Jonah

by admin

Jonah Mike Johnson Most are familiar with the story of Jonah which is recorded in the book of Jonah.  Jonah was fleeing from God in a ship and was eventually cast into a stormy sea.  There he was swallowed by a great fish, and he lived in the belly of the fish for three days […]

Can We Understand the Bible Alike?

by admin

CAN WE UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE ALIKE? Mike Johnson If we can understand the Bible at all, we can understand the Bible alike. The Bible is truth, and truth does not contradict itself. If two people disagree on a Bible passage, both cannot be correct, as the Bible does not teach two different and conflicting concepts. We may misunderstand the […]

The Inspiration of the Bible

by admin

The Inspiration of the Bible Mike Johnson  There are many people who do not believe in the inspiration of the Scriptures, and this number seems to be growing.  There are even some religious people who deny “inspiration” in the sense that the Scriptures teach it.  They define inspiration to mean only that the Bible bears […]

God’ Inspired Message

by admin

GOD’S INSPIRED MESSAGE  Mike Johnson In I Thessalonians 2:13, Paul wrote, “For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which also effectively […]

Use of the Bible

by admin

USE OF THE BIBLE Mike Johnson People use the Bible in many different ways.  Sadly, some only use the Bible as a place to record marriages, births, deaths, etc. Some people use it to swear on, sometimes calling for an entire stack.  Others use it just as an ornament for a living room table, thinking […]
