It's Settled In Heaven

There has never been any let-up in the attacks upon the Bible from the time the devil said to Eve, “Yea, hath God said?”; and every attack upon its verity has been of the devil.

The Francis "Infect": Pope Francis Is Changing Evangelicalism's Attitude Toward Rome

While it is not surprising that Pope Francis’ visit to the United States enamored the Catholic faithful and even the secular establishment, his warm reception by evangelicals is something that, at least many years ago, would have been considered quite newsworthy. In recent years, however, Protestants and evangelical Christians have warmed up to Roman Catholicism, and Pope Francis has only furthered the comraderie between the two groups as many evangelicals admire the pope’s populist style and message of care and concern for the poor and oppressed.

Walking with the Lord

The Christian life is a most joyous event. God wants our days to be filled with anticipation of how He is going to work. As the Holy Spirit ministers to us through prayer and God's Word, we need to strive daily to be obedient to the Great Commission. Obedient truly does yield God's blessing. Let’s consider some aspects of the Christian life that will help us in walking with our Lord.

Psalm 37:3-7—“Trust in the LORD…delight thyself also in the LORD…commit thy way unto the LORD…rest in the LORD.”

So Many Things for Which to Be Thankful

Here in the United States, this Thursday is our annual Thanksgiving holiday. Millions of people will celebrate this day in our nation, but those who know Jesus Christ as their Savior are especially overwhelmed with reasons to be thankful. Allow me just a brief opportunity to express, along with the psalmist, why "I will praise [the Lord's] Name for ever and ever" (Psa. 145:2). I am certainly grateful for the love of God which motivated Him to give "His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (Jn. 3:16).

Real Enemies in a Real War

Even before the tragic terrorist events of September 11, 2001, discerning believers in Christ recognized the reality that the religions of this world are at war, not simply with each other, but against the one, true God Himself. A Russian airliner was recently blown up in flight killing over 200 passengers. In Paris, over 100 were just murdered, and hundreds more seriously injured, in six coordinated attacks in public venues. In both instances, Islamic terrorists claim responsibility. These are the latest expressions of a conflict that has raged since the fall in Eden.
