SIN NO MORE!

Let us get to the “nitty gritty” of this passage immediately.  In the Old Testament we had been told that those committing adultery should be stoned.  This was to be a controlling factor under the law.  (Leviticus 20)  Obviously, this enforcement lessened quickly, because we read of people who indulged and were not stoned.  WeContinue reading “SIN NO MORE!”

ALL! ALL! ALL!

But in His mercy God extends to the sinner the opportunity to obtain righteousness… Every so often, I run into an argumentative individual who has an answer for everything that has or is going to take place under the sun.  When I reach a certain point I ask: “Do you believe that every man, womanContinue reading “ALL! ALL! ALL!”

SANTA CLAUS AIN’T COMING TO TOWN

I was brought up in a home where much was made of “Santa Claus” as a part of the Christmas celebration.  It was not within Patsy and my understanding and agreement, to foster that particular inclusiveness into the thinking of our children.  However, celebrating Christmas in itself, and with others, was a definite part ofContinue reading “SANTA CLAUS AIN’T COMING TO TOWN”

JUSTIFICATION

You have heard that the word justification means “just as if I had never sinned”.  It has a little more to it than that.  Having heard Dr. Charles Woodbridge speak on this subject many years ago, I picked up his writing so that I might copy it for you. “Regeneration and justification are closely relatedContinue reading “JUSTIFICATION”

GOD’S INTERVENTION

In these days when the corona-virus is raking our country and the world, there is a light here and there that becomes a testimony to the GRACE of GOD!  It is not the many that are healed, as much as the attitude toward their experience.  Some confidently faced death with the assurance of their salvation. Continue reading “GOD’S INTERVENTION”
