The Larger Issues (Baking Cake for Homosexuals)

The Larger Issues (Baking Cake for Homosexuals)

The Larger Issues I fully endorse the letter, “Religious Freedom vs. Discrimination” by Thomas F. Harkins, Jr. It is unreasonable, coercive, and unkind for those who believe in any form of sexual immorality (including homosexuality) to force a sincere person to choose between his “sincerely held religious convictions” (on the one hand) and keeping his business operative (on the other […]

How were the Early Communities of Christ Organized? Did the body of Christ in the first century have popes, cardinals, bishops, pastors, ministers,monks, nuns, priests, ruling elders, clergymen, and other functionaries? What does Scripture say?

Whom Should We Address in Prayer?

Whom Should We Address in Prayer?

Whom Should We Address in Prayer? QUESTION: “Whom should we address in prayer?” “Some of our friends seem to seldom pray to God the Father; they generally address the Lord Jesus when they pray.

“Calling on the Name of the Lord”

“Calling on the Name of the Lord”

“Calling on the Name of the Lord” Considering how many people within “Christendom” teach that an individual can be saved merely by professing a belief in Christ, it is not surprising that skeptics claim that the Bible contradicts itself in this regard. Although Peter and Paul declared, “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Acts 2:21; […]

Does Mary Intercede for Christians?

Does Mary Intercede for Christians?

Does Mary Intercede for Christians? It has been argued that “Mary is the creature closest to God. Moreover, while Christ is the mediator of all grace between God and creation, Mary is the mediator of all grace between Christ and humanity. Consequently, Mary is a powerful intercessor for all who turn to her” (see Zoltan, 1994, emp. added). The Bible […]

Pro-Planned Parenthood Pastor (Criticism of Mayor Price)

Pro-Planned Parenthood Pastor! Criticism of Mayor Price I was grieved with Lee Ann Bryce’s criticism of Mayor Betsy Price. She cited the mayors of Dallas, Austin, and Houston who support the funding Planned Parenthood, the abortion provider. However, Lee Ann wrote prejudicial statements and half truths in her letter. (Incidentally, Lee Ann calls herself a “Reverend,” which clearly violates Scripture […]

The Presidency and the Creation-Evolution Controversy Richard Hollerman Probably many Evangelical Protestants wish for a president who would fully support the Biblical account of creation. They pine for the days when evolution was a minority position, held only by liberal Protestants along with atheists and agnostics. When the presidential election comes each four years, they would like to learn that […]

Matthew 26:20

Did Jesus Sit for the Passover? Matthew 26:20 “Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve” (KJV) Most people who read this verse assume that Jesus “sat down” with the apostles in the upper room to eat the Passover meal on the night of his betrayal by Judas. They picture a scene similar to Leonardo Da […]

Women, Make Your Own Clothes!

  Women, Make Your Own Clothes! Richard Hollerman Most women who either claim to be Christians or who know anything about the way of Christ are aware that women (and men) are to be clothed in modesty.

Knowing the Right Thing to Do and Not Doing it!

Knowing the Right Thing to Do and Not Doing it! James 4:17 “To one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.” The New Testament contains a number of passages that define sin.  It is “lawlessness” (1 John 3:4), it is “unrighteousness” (1 John 5:17), and it includes whatever is not […]
