Pardon Me

“One who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. But since he did not have the means to repay, his lord commanded him to be sold, along with his wife and children and all that he had, and repayment to be made.

Until These Calamites Have Passed

The headings of the psalms are not inspired words from God but reflect the ancient concepts of what was occurring in the life of the psalmist when he penned that psalm.

Miraculous Gifts of the Spirit Through the Apostles’ Hands

The Bible has the answer to every question and every issue that a New Testament Christian will face today.  We truly are “thoroughly equipped” (2 Tim. 3:17) with a clear understanding of “all things pertaining to life and godliness” (2 Pet. 1:3).  Consider this question: Can Christians today possess the same miraculous gifts of the Spirit that Christians in New Testament times…
