A Professor stood at the front of his class and said,
I'll prove to you, if God exist, then he is evil. He asked,
did God create everything? If God created everything
then he created evil, which means God is evil.
Then a young man in his class stood up and said,
excuse me, professor does cold exist? The professor
says, what kind of question is that? Of course
it exists. Have you never been cold… Continue

Answer: The Bible presents several different resources to aid us in our effort to overcome sin. In this lifetime, we will never be perfectly victorious over sin (1 John 1:8), but that should still be our goal.

The first resource the Bible mentions in our effort to overcome sin is the Holy…Continue

"Sing lustily and with a good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead or half asleep; but lift up your voice with strength. Be no more afraid of your voice now, nor more ashamed of its being heard, than when you sung the songs of Satan." - John Wesley

God, whose stories shape our lives,
Forgive us when we tell stories to gossip.
Forgive us when we tell stories as lies.
Forgive us when we refuse to respond to stories of poverty and pain.
We are people who love a good story,
yet we ignore the greatest story ever told,
the story of Your Son.
Forgive us for making our stories more important
than the story of salvation and grace that You have
authored for our lives.
Help us to be people who live… Continue

“Let us ever glory in the cross of Christ; let us regard it as the source of all our hopes, and the foundation of all our peace. Ignorance and unbelief may see nothing in the sufferings of Calvary but the cruel martyrdom of an innocent person: faith will look far deeper; faith will see in the death of Jesus the payment of man’s enormous debt to God, and the complete salvation of all who believe.”
You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:32, NKJV

“Go to the cross of Christ, all you that want to be delivered from the power of selfishness. Go and see what a price was paid there to provide a ransom for your soul. Go and see what an astounding sacrifice was there made, that a door to eternal life might be provided for poor sinners like you. Go and see how the Son of God gave Himself for you, and learn to think it a small thing to give yourself to Him.”
