The Plan of Salvation and the Churches of Christ

The Plan of Salvation and the Churches of Christ With Particular Emphasis on the so-called “Steps of Salvation” Richard Hollerman (This article was written years ago but there are aspects of it that are still relevant for the 21st Century.)

Reach Out with Love, Kindness, Gentleness, and Friendliness

  Reach Out with Love, Kindness, Gentleness, and Friendliness Being Christlike in attitude, words, and relationships Richard Hollerman We are living in a cruel and hard world.  The world often seems cold, unfeeling and harsh in their attitudes and disposition. This is true of the world at large (1 John 5:19). We’ve all had the experience of stopping at a […]

Spiritual Blessings in Christ Jesus 

Spiritual Blessings in Christ Jesus 

  Spiritual Blessings in Christ Jesus   Many people in this world view Jesus as merely an historical figure—perhaps nothing more than a great teacher, a worthy example, or an unfortunate martyr.  Others acknowledge that Jesus was the Son of God and our Savior—but they fail to recognize the full richness of His nature and character.             God wants us […]

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 […]

The Plague and Power of Counterfeit Christianity in the World!

The Plague and Power of Counterfeit Christianity in the World! Let’s Not Believe All the Statistics! Richard Hollerman Has it ever occurred to you how much damage occurs when a professing “Christian” church, denomination, or religious organization purports to be a genuine part of Christ’s body in the world today?

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. We may even know of some who regularly pray to the Holy Spirit. In fact, one popular book by a false teacher (Benny Hinn) is entitled […]

“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 […]

Married Women and Merely Cultural?

Married Women and Merely Cultural?

1 Corinthians 11:2-16 Married Women and Merely Cultural? This section of Scripture is often misunderstood in different ways.

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

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 […]
