Does hell burn for all eternity?

April 14th, 2013 |

Would a loving God burn people in hell for all eternity?  Suppose a 16 year old lived a life of rebellion, they forsook God and committed crimes around the neighborhood.  One day they tragically die, lost at the age of sixteen.  Would God punish that individual for trillions upon trillions of years, for sixteen years of sin?  Would this be fair?  If you were in God’s position would you burn that individual for all eternity? 

Many people, Christians and non-Christians alike, struggle with these concepts.  Thankfully they don’t have to, because the truth is radically different from what they believe.  Today we want to discover what the Bible, and the Bible alone has to say about this misunderstood subject of hell.

Saul, Samuel and the witch of En dor: Did Saul speak with the dead?

February 3rd, 2013 |

One of the most common questions about the Bible is about Israel’s first king.  King Saul began his reign humbly and faithfully but unfortunately it ended in disaster.  At the end of Saul’s life, the Bible records in 1 Samuel 28 that Saul consulted a medium, who apparently brought up the prophet Samuel back from the dead.  Here is a question for many followers of Christ.  Do witches and mediums have the power to speak with or raise the dead?  Also should we visit fortune tellers, mediums or psychics?    Lastly, did Saul really talk with Samuel who had already passed away or was it someone or something else?  Thankfully the Bible has clear answers to these important questions.  So let us study the Bible and the Bible alone to find the answer to these questions.

What should a Christian wear?

January 1st, 2013 |

The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “ in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”  Shortly after the Thanksgiving holiday, I was trying to think about how I could be more thankful to God.  As I was thinking I was recalling how God has changed me.  I thought about how I haven’t done that sin in a long time, or how I haven’t said that unkind word in a long time.  I began to think “I am becoming more like Jesus.”  I realize I am not by any means perfect, but I am getting better.  Maybe you feel that way.  Maybe you feel not perfect, but when you look at yourself you see less faults than before.  I felt that way for about 3 minutes.  But then I felt that something was wrong, terribly wrong  Why?  Because Steps To Christ p. 64 says…”The closer you come to Jesus, the more faulty you will appear in your own eyes; for your vision will be clearer, and your imperfections will be seen in broad and distinct contrast to His perfect nature.”

When the prophet Isaiah beheld the glory of the Lord he declared “Woe is me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.” (Isaiah 6:5)  You see the closer you come to Jesus, the more faulty you will appear in your own eyes.  Often our feelings are not a right compass for morality for “the human heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9)  We may often feel righteous when in reality we are sinning against God.  We are told that the greatest deception of the human mind in Christ’s day was that a mere ascent to the truth constituted righteousness.  The Jews during Jesus time thought that because they knew about the Sabbath, because they knew about the Bible, because they were God’s chosen peculiar people, they thought they must be righteous. But have you ever wondered what is the greatest deception not for the world, but for God’s church in the last days?
