F R I E N D

Dr. Luke writes extensively about the Wonderful Lord Jesus.  In particular, I refer to an account early in the ministry of the Savior, when some friends of a paralytic were taking him on a stretcher, hoping for Jesus to heal him.  Realizing the situation to be almost impossible, they climbed on the roof of theContinue reading “F R I E N D”

ANSWERS TO OUR DILEMMA – CONTINUED

“Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities.  For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.  Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed with receive condemnation upon themselves. .  For rulers are not a cause ofContinue reading “ANSWERS TO OUR DILEMMA – CONTINUED”

ANSWERS TO OUR DILEMMA

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!  How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!  For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who became His counselor?  Or who has first given to Him that it might be paid back to Him again?  For fromContinue reading “ANSWERS TO OUR DILEMMA”

DESIGNED INTELLIGENTLY

Having lived in New Jersey for a number of years, it was my privilege to have in the congregation numerous individuals involved in multiplied areas of research.  They were brilliant individuals in their fields.  They were also solid in their convictions as relating to the Word of God, admirably so!  There is so much differenceContinue reading “DESIGNED INTELLIGENTLY”

MARRIAGE CONCEPTS

It did not take long for me to realize that the majority of people had ideas about what they wanted included in the vows they were making. It took less time for me to decide what I would or would not accept. WhileContinue reading “MARRIAGE CONCEPTS”

A BELIEF THAT BEHAVES

We have lots of “professors”, those who identify themselves as Christians but live like the “devil”. As has been said over the years, “Go to a funeral and you wonder who the preacher is speaking of, because we have never seen any indication of this noble character that now occupies the coffin”. As Jewish peopleContinue reading “A BELIEF THAT BEHAVES”
