What’s Jezebel Got To Do With It, Got To Do With It…

The message that comes out of the seven churches of Revelation is that it’s easy to compromise our faith in order to get along in society. Both the churches of Pergamum and Thyatira were under pressure to compromise their faith in order to earn a living. In Thyatira, for instance, the craft guilds were important […]

The Greatest Miracle

Do you believe in miracles? What surprises me is how many people dismiss God working in the world of the supernatural simply because they don’t believe such things as miracles can occur. Duh! That’s why we call them miracles. I recently finished a very interesting and informative book on the Exodus, but I was disappointed […]

We Must Take A Closer Look…

Ruth and I are reading through Genesis and I have to admit there are a great many texts that are difficult to understand in the book. Anyone reading through the first nine chapters is confronted with a host of statements that are puzzling and a bit confusing to say the least. It is not only […]

It is easy to make the Gospel all about us, but that is not the true Gospel. The very core of Scripture is the exposure to a lost world that the great unfathomable God […]

Thinking It Over…

by Ladd

I recently received an email from a friend about a text in the book of Daniel. It seems his friend had sent him a reference to the text to try and prove a point of theology. The only problem with this proof texting was the text had nothing to do with the issue my friend’s […]

“Only Truth Can Defeat Error” John Stott

by Ladd

Last post we began our study into the third church mentioned in the Book of Revelation, Pergamum, (Revelation 2:12-17). The church was known and commended by Jesus for its faithfulness to the truth of the Gospel despite living in the midst of rampant paganism. In fact, the city was so notorious for its worship of […]
