It Doesn’t Take Much to Feed a Corpse

by admin

It Doesn’t Take Much to Feed a Corpse Dalton Key Those of us living in the Texas Panhandle have been enjoying a strange and remarkable Spring. Due to several weeks of above-average rainfall, the usually parched, arid earth has become a virtual paradise, exuding life with luscious blades of green. A good friend fussed that […]

We Are Searching

by admin

WE ARE SEARCHING We are searching for people who have good and honest hearts open and receptive to the truth. (Lk. 8:15) We are searching for those who not only want to be religious, but who want to be right religiously. (Jer. 10:23) We are searching for those who believe the Bible to be the […]

Are You Just Religious Or A Christian?

by admin

ARE YOU JUST RELIGIOUS OR A CHRISTIAN? Leo B. Plyer There are many who would contend that those who are religious are Christians. This would, no doubt, be the contention of the denominational world. Even Webster’s Dictionary (which gives the meaning to words as they are commonly used), give as, one meaning, “one who believes […]

How Can I Be Just a Christian?

by admin

HOW CAN I BE JUST A CHRISTIAN? You can be just a Christian, nothing more or less, by obeying the gospel of Jesus Christ through faith (Rom. 6:3-5,17,18; 10:13-17; Heb. 5:9; Gal. 3:26,27, etc.). By doing exactly what the people in the first century did to become Christians, you will become exactly what they were: […]

The Church Belongs to Christ Because:

by admin

THE CHURCH BELONGS TO CHRIST BECAUSE: He built it. (Matt. 16:18) He is its foundation. (I Cor. 3:11) He is its chief corner stone. (Eph. 2:19-22) He purchased it with His blood. (Acts 20:28) He is its head. (Eph. 5:23) He governs its worship. (Jn. 4:24) He assigned its work. (Eph. 4:11-16) He is its Savior […]

Bystanders or Stand-byers?

by admin

BYSTANDERS OR STAND-BYERS? A family once said:  “Yes, we think the church is necessary, and we attend some of its services.”  They were BY-STANDERS. Another family said:  “Yes we believe in the church, we never miss a service, except in case of sickness.”  They were STAND-BYERS.  Which are you?   From Visitor  (Thayer Street ) 5-27-45

Dangers of the Time

by admin

Dangers of the Time The eventual subtle infiltration of error through centralized organization has always been a threat to the church–more so than a frontal attack of false doctrine and persecution from without.  One of the perils confronting the church of New Testament times was that of doubt and error arising from the false teachings […]

The Young People

by admin

The Young People Greg Gwin More and more we hear folks deciding to attend a certain ‘church’ because “there are lots of good activities for the young people”. Often it is the sole basis for making this important determination. ‘Programs’, ‘activities’, and ‘groups’ for the young people – that’s the drawing card. And, what activities […]

Churches & Recreation

by admin

Churches & Recreation Larry Hafley By teaching the word of God and caring for its needy, each church of Christ fulfills its divinely appointed duties of evangelism, edification, and benevolence.  All who would engage the church in other activities have no authority for their practices. Money is obtained by the church to meet its responsibilities […]

The Strength of a Church

by admin

The Strength of a Church It is well to look at the strength of a congregation and then learn how to increase it. A Church’s strength does not necessarily depend on the number of its members. Many times we misjudge strength because we estimate strength by the number of members. We “count noses” rather than […]

Hypocrites in the Church

by admin

HYPOCRITES IN THE CHURCH The man who says he is kept from church by the hypocrites is not influenced by them anywhere else. Business if full of them, but if he by chance sees where he can make money, he does not hesitate because there are hypocrites making money. Society is crowded with them, and […]

The Power of the Gospel

by admin

THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL Eugene Crawley There has been, I am convinced, too much emphasis put upon building up the church in numbers, to the oversight and exclusion of making sure people know, understand and obey from the heart the truth as revealed by Divine inspiration.  This has not been true everywhere nor with […]

Isn’t It Strange

by admin

ISN’T IT STRANGE James P. Needham When one wants to know what the work of preachers, elders and teachers is, one can easily cite numerous passages which give the answer. (II Timothy 4:1-6, I Peter 5:2, Acts 20:28, Titus 2:1-8, etc.)  When one wants to know the function of youth directors, recreation directors, chairmen, superintendents, […]

What Kind of Drugstore Is This?

by admin

“What Kind of Drugstore Is This?” Edward O. Bragwell, Jr. I saw a cartoon posted in a brother’s drug store with the caption saying in effect: “What do you mean you don’t have nuts and bolts?  What kind of drug store is this?”  Our society expects more from a drug store than just drugs.  The […]
