"All Things To All Men"

A Scriptural Consideration of Modern Evangelism Techniques in Light of First Corinthians Chapter Nine

"We Shall Be Saved, Even As They"

Only one Gospel exists that must be proclaimed to a lost and dying world (Gal. 1:6-12). Yet, a realistic look at the “Christian” scene today attests to the fact that there are many “gospels” being proclaimed. Each one of these messages gives its own particular formula for what people must do to be saved. While each of these “gospels” claims that faith in Jesus Christ is important, some add baptism or other church ordinances as prerequisites to the new birth. Others add the works of the law or church membership.

Enlarging Our Coasts

“And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that Thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that Thine hand might be with me, and that Thou wouldest keep me from evil that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.” (1 Chronicles 4:10)

Creation or Evolution: Does It Matter?

This question has stirred much debate over the centuries. Over 20 years ago, the Long Beach Press‑Telegram printed the answers given by four religious leaders, only one of which is true and biblical. Decades later, the answers given by these various religious representatives are still indicative of the beliefs of those who claim to be spiritual leaders in our country. The exact question asked was, "What are your faith's beliefs regarding evolution?" (Press-Telegram, July 4, 1992).

Worldliness: Another Great Enemy of the Church

What exactly is worldliness? Many Christians are not aware that the Bible never uses the term worldliness. In fact, it only uses the term worldly twice—in Titus 2:12 and Hebrews 9:1—and only in the Titus passage does it address this concept of worldliness as it is used in the church today.
