Bible Submission

by admin

Bible Submission James A. Allen “To actually and truly stand upon the Bible then is to believe and do the things that the Bible teaches, and to leave undone everything that it does not teach. No man can allow his preference or his opinion to prevent him from doing anything that the Scriptures require; nor […]

  NEVER FOLLOW CUSTOM BLINDLY     Author Unknown The new husband watched his wife prepare her first ham for the oven and noticed that she cut off a few inches from one end. Asked why she did that, she replied that her mother always did it the same way. They called Mother, and while she […]

Is the Bible the Word of God?

by admin

Is the Bible the Word of God? Quite simply, the answer to the above question is Yes! Without even looking about what the Bible says about its inspiration, there is plenty of evidence that it is a unique book. The books of the Bible were written by 44 men over a period of about 1500 […]

Some Think…

by admin

SOME THINK… “Some think they are at liberty to introduce anything into God’s worship providing God has not, in so many words, prohibited it. This is evidently a mistake. Such a plan of procedure would open the flood gates for innumerable innovations. On this principle every kind of food and drink might be brought into […]

Only the Word of God

ONLY THE WORD OF GOD Author Unknown What determines right? What is the standard of truth? The answer is; the Word of God only. Why? “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for […]

Truth’s Narrow Door

by admin

TRUTH’S NARROW DOOR Earl Kimbrough Jesus said, “Strive to enter in by the narrow door.”  (Lk. 13:24, RSV)  Truth is always narrow.  This is true of all truth.  Two plus two equals four.  Of all the answers that might be given as the sum of two plus two, only one is right.  A person who […]

What Determines Right?

by admin

What Determines Right? Bill Crews NOT REASON: “For seeing that in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom knew not God, it was God’s good pleasure through the foolishness of preaching (message preached) to save them that believe.” (1 Cor. 1:21). “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my […]

I Don’t See Anything Wrong With That

by admin

I Don’t See Anything Wrong With That  How many times have we heard this reply when we question some belief or practice which may be without Bible authority? The saddest thing about the statement is that many times it is really true. So many individuals have so little knowledge and understanding of the Bible when […]

Is It Narrow Minded?

by admin

IS IT NARROW MINDED? Jere Frost I don’t know about you, but I get a little weary of hearing the word “narrow” used as a slur against preachers who adhere to the Bible in their preaching. Sure they are “narrow,” but so are factory workers, surgeons, druggists, and teachers. The factory worker is so “narrow” […]

Wrong Is Always Wrong

by admin

Wrong is Always Wrong  WRONG IS WRONG — Even if you don’t get caught. The eyes of  the Lord are in every place. WRONG IS WRONG — Even if you do it for a good cause. The end never justifies the means. The honorable purpose does not  justify a dishonorable deed or action. WRONG IS […]

Positively No Visiting!

by admin

Positively No Visiting! Recently, while visiting patients in a hospital, we observed several signs saying, “No Visiting.”  Then we came to a sign that said, “Positively No Visiting.”  I suppose some day we will find one that will read, “Absolutely Positively No Visiting.”  If only we could learn to respect authority so that “No Visiting” […]

Gopher Wood or Gopher Forest?

by admin

Gopher Wood or Gopher Forest? In seeking to impress upon the minds of individuals the importance of respecting the authority of God’s word we use the example of God commanding Noah to build the ark of gopher wood. When God commanded Noah to build the ark of gopher wood we note (and correctly so) that […]

The Authority of Elders

by admin

THE AUTHORITY OF ELDERS Mike Johnson Elders have a very important function in the Lord’s church.  They are to oversee the flock; they are to feed or shepherd the local congregation of which they are a part of (Acts 20:17, 28; I Pet. 5:1-2).  Elders are to watch for grievous wolves (or false teachers) who […]

The Health Inspector & Authority

by admin

The Health Inspector and Authority Mike Johnson  Many years ago I worked in a meatpacking plant.  One responsibility that I had was to roll a vat, which contained tubular molds of lunchmeat, up to an ice bin and then fill the vat with ice.  I was told to use a stainless steel shovel which was […]

By What Authority

by admin

BY WHAT AUTHORITY? Mike Johnson  “By what authority doest thou these things“?  “Who gave thee this authority“?  These two questions, asked in Matthew 21:23, were asked of Jesus by certain chief priests and elders of his day who were trying to trap him.  Although their motives were  not good, their questions showed that they understood […]

I’m Not as Bad as He Is

by admin

“I’M NOT AS BAD AS HE IS” Mike Johnson  Consider a case where an officer might pull someone over for speeding.  The officer approaches the stopped car, and the driver responds by saying, “I know that I was going over the speed limit, but I have probably been passed by two hundred cars just in […]

Authority 03 (The Authority of the Bible)

by admin

THE AUTHORITY OF THE BIBLE Mike Johnson  The authority of God, Christ, and the apostles is very clearly taught in the Scriptures  (Ps. 50:10-12; Heb. 1:1-2; Mt. 16:19, 17:5, 18:18; II Cor. 5:20; Phil. 4:9).   Also, the Holy Spirit played a role as he guided the apostles “unto all truth.”  Consider now the authority of God’s […]
