Matthew 19:10 His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with [his] wife, it is not good to marry. Matthew 19:11 But he said unto them, All [men] cannot receive this saying, save [they] to whom it is given. Matthew 19:12 For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from [their] mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there… Read More

A farther indication of the corrupted state of the heart of natural man is that Christ states that if a person divorces, he/she cannot remarry yet all kind of excuses are used by those not converted to re-marry. With this said, if the divorced person remarries then clearly there is added proof that a hard heart is evident. Proof Verses that prohibit remarriage while both spouses are still alive. 1. Mark 10:9-12… Read More

Matthew 19:7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away? A close look at the writing of divorcement which follows will help answer the question (from God’s perspective) posed by these blind leaders of the blind: Deuteronomy 24:1 When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his… Read More

Women’s place within the congregational setting is another example of the decision by the church body leaders of our day to change God’s laws to suit man’s ideas and desires. There is tremendous pressure to accept women in the pulpit and allow women to rule and have authority over the congregational settings. This is absolutely contrary to the law of God (1 Cor. 14:33-34, 1 Tim. 2:11-12). God has given very strict… Read More

Once Upon a Time (Jeremiah 17:1-13) Once upon a time there was a man who wanted to know where the middle verse was in the Bible. So he counted all the verses, and then divided the total by two, and then counted where the middle verse was. It turned out to be Jeremiah 17:5. And to his amazement he discovered that this verse, Jeremiah 17:5, shows the character of the whole Bible…. Read More

I’ve often pointed the following out relative to the “supposed” contradictions between James and Paul – which so-called contradition is nothing short of one not paying attention to what HE is reading! When Paul insisted the believer is “justified by faith only,” he particularly notes that it was at the time that Abraham BELIEVED GOD relative to the promise of the birth of Isaac. When James says we are “NOT justified by… Read More

The pillars of our society are crumbling; and if radical changes are not made, our society will fall to pieces. The pillars of the church are crumbling. And, although the Church of Christ will not be destroyed, churches and denominations will fall. The pillars are families – the church, as well as the country, depends on families. As the families are strong – praying, worshipping, holy, families – the church is a… Read More

What a mercy it would be if our conversation were more on eternal things! How we need the “three sieves”: Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? And, we might add, Is it profitable? “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.” (John 3:7) 1. What is the new birth? 2. How is it accomplished? 3. How may a poor sinner know whether he is born… Read More

Most everyone today is concerned about good behavior in marriage, because most everyone, even non-Christians, know that something must be done about the serious undermining of family life. So everyone is asking, “How do we shore up the foundations of our marriages, so that our society will remain solid?” Very few, though, are willing to look to the proper places to learn, and few are willing to put the work into marriage… Read More

There are some sentiments which I believe essential to the very state and character of a true Christian. And these make him a Christian, not merely by being his acknowledged sentiments, but by a certain peculiar manner in which he possesses them. There is a certain important change [that] takes place in the heart, by the operation of the Spirit of God, before the soundest and most orthodox sentiments can have their… Read More

To the distress of those to whom God has not led a marriage partner, it often happens in Reformed churches that the singles in the congregation are neglected. Very little is said about their good place in the church, about the propriety of their single life. Often they are viewed as misfits because they are not married as most others in the church. Sometimes this attitude shows when parents are horrified because… Read More

The seventh land purchase that we read about in the Word of God occurred when Judas Iscariot committed suicide. And even though this may be a dreadful event in our sight, we should keep in mind that we should not have our focus on Judas Iscariot, but on the Lord Jesus Christ, for the Gospel was written to glorify Christ, not Judas. We will read here about “Akeldama, the Field of Blood”…. Read More

“…If God be For Us, Who Can Be Against Us?” (Romans 8:31) This part of the verse in Romans 8:31 crosses my mind more frequently, I suppose, than most other Scriptures. It is a pleasant theme for meditation. From whence this loving kindness commenced, is a surprising and pleasant source of meditation. In my youth, I, and every one I knew put great emphasis upon John 3:16: “For God so loved the… Read More
