  1. Gentle Jesus by Cyril Almond  
    Jesus could speak very plainly. Some times those who heard him did not understand.

  2. Free Will? Liberal Christianity. Punished for Sins We Commit After We Become Christians? Tertullian and the Montanists, Part 4 by Karl Kemp  
    The widespread idea in the early Christian Fathers that Christians must be punished for their sins, especially their more serious sins, finally led to the idea of purgatory. Augustine (AD354-430) taught purgatory. And the idea of purgatory eventually led to the idea of indulgences. I include a shocking quotation from John Tetzel, a Roman Catholic monk, who went around Germany selling indulgences which would supposedly free people from purgatory. Martin Luther strongly reacted and the Protestant reformation was initiated.

  3. Betrayal by Cyril Almond  
    How a confident of Jesus. Betrayed him.

  4. Free Will? Liberal Christianity. Punished for Sins We Commit After We Become Christians? Tertullian and the Montanists, Part 3 by Karl Kemp  
    The early Christian Fathers did not have problems dealing with the sins that were committed before the people became Christians, but many of them had a very serious problem dealing with the sins of Christians, especially sins like murder, adultery, or apostasy. Some came up with ideas like the church cannot forgive such sins, and many said that such sins can only be forgiven once, and widespread ideas like God must punish us for such sins because His honor has been defamed and His justice requires it.

  5. Free Will? Liberal Christianity. Punished for Sins We Commit After We Become Christians? Tertullian and the Montanists, Part 2 by Karl Kemp  
    We discuss Augustine and the Calvinists and Arminians here in Part 2. We also discuss Romans chapter 7, which is a passage that is very relevant to topic of righteousness, holiness, and victory over sin.

  6. Free Will? Liberal Christianity. Punished for Sins We Commit After We Become Christians? Tertullian and the Montanists, Part 1 by Karl Kemp  
    We have limited freedom of the will after the fall; we are dependent on the saving, sanctifying grace of God in Christ to become Christians and to live as Christians. Three pages here in Part 1 of this paper are devoted to a discussion of liberal Christianity. Much of their teaching eliminates many, or most, of the foundational truths of Christianity presented in the Bible.

  7. Love of Money by Sundaresh Venugopal  
    Money is always an inadequate means and a
    disastrous end.

  8. Understanding Apostle Paul's Letters by Olawale Ogunsola  
    It is possible to listen to a news item and misinterprete same. But a careful analysis of it with another listener can make a difference.

  9. Understanding Apostle Paul's Letters by Olawale Ogunsola  
    It is possible to listen to a news item and misinterprete same. But a careful analysis of it with another listener can make a difference.

  10. Apostle Paul: A Misunderstood Man. by Olawale Ogunsola  
    It is a very common thing to criticize or condemn what man does not understand. Additional information can change the mind of a critic. So, those who love to criticize Apostle Paul may have a change of mind with more available facts.

  11. The Importance of Taking Account of Jewish Ways of Thinking and Speaking That Are Found in the Bible by Max Aplin  
    The biblical authors wrote with a thoroughly Jewish mindset, which often involved thinking and speaking about things in ways that were in a sense much less precise than we are used to in the modern West. This can be seen in how they used hyperbole, how they often did not mention that there would be exceptions to things, and how they modified their Old Testament quotations and their traditions about Jesus and the early church. Many of the problems that modern readers of the Bible feel when reading it can be solved by taking account of the authors' ancient Jewish mindset.

  12. Hebrews Chapters 8-10: "We Have Been Sanctified" Through the Better Sacrifice, Part 3.5 by Karl Kemp  
    I'm adding this six page section, "In the Typical New Testament pattern, When Does the Spirit Come Bringing the New Birth and Spiritual Resurrection in Relation to Water Baptism," to supplement the discussion of water baptism and receiving the Spirit that ended with the lengthy discussion of Titus 3:5-7 in the middle of Part 3 of this paper.

  13. The Cross by Cyril Almond  
    What Jesus did for us on the cross

  14. A Humble King Upon A Donkey by Jennifer Rubino  
    A brief look at the donkey. The donkey is the animal Jesus Christ chose specifically to use for his triumphant entry into Jerusalem.

  15. Hebrews Chapter 11 and Faith, Part 2 by Karl Kemp  
    Hebrews 11:7-40 are discussed verse-by-verse here in Part 2. We can learn a lot about faith from these verses. I believe the two page discussion under Heb. 11:7 is quite important: Did Noah become "an heir of the righteousness which is according to faith," or "by" or "by means of" "the righteousness which is according to faith"?

  16. Hebrews Chapters 11 and Faith, Part 1 (of 2 Parts) by Karl Kemp  
    We can learn a lot about faith from Hebrews chapter 11. For one thing, the word faith is used twenty-five times. Faith is an attitude of the heart where we put God first (and the things associated with God), which includes trusting Him, believing what He says, and obeying Him. This definition doesn't tell us all we need to know about the meaning of faith in the New Testament, but it is very helpful.

  17. THE LAMB OF GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SANCTUARIES; CH- IV, PART- 5 by Dr Surya Kumar Daimari  
    The main purpose of these series of Bible study will be to make an exegetical survey of the sacrificial Lamb of God in the Old Testament passages mainly in the Sanctuary and its typological significance to the propitiatory and expiatory atonement work of the Lord Jesus Christ in the New as reflected in John 1:29, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

  18. Hebrews Chapters 8-10: "We Have Been Sanctified" Through the Better Sacrifice, Part 10 by Karl Kemp  
    We discuss Hebrews 10:24-39 here in Part 10. The writer powerfully called his Christian readers in these verses with the need to repent where repentance was required. He warned of getting to the place where "there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins" (Heb. 10:26). There is widespread agreement that the writer was concerned with apostasy that would include "trampling under foot the Son of God" and regarding "as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace" (Heb. 10:29).

  19. THE LAMB OF GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SANCTUARIES; CH- IV, PART- 4 by Dr Surya Kumar Daimari  
    The main purpose of these series of Bible study will be to make an exegetical survey of the sacrificial Lamb of God in the Old Testament passages mainly in the Sanctuary and its typological significance to the propitiatory and expiatory atonement work of the Lord Jesus Christ in the New as reflected in John 1:29, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

  20. Why the 'Wages of Sin is Death' by Robert Hawes  
    An article examining why death is the penalty for sin

  21. The love of God by Cyril Almond  
    All about knowing our rights. As a child of God. We have a right to really know him. In a intimate way.

  22. Hebrews Chapters 8-10: "We Have Been Sanctified" Through the Better Sacrifice, Part 9 by Karl Kemp  
    We discuss Hebrews 10:18-23 here in Part 9. Through His taking on flesh, the Lord Jesus became a veil (or a door, or a bridge) between God and His people (the believers) that was opened for us by His all-important atoning death.

  23. Hebrews Chapters 8-10: "We Have Been Sanctified" Through the Better Sacrifice, Part 8 by Karl Kemp  
    We discuss Hebrews 10:10-18 here in Part 8. Essentially all of these verses are of key importance on the topic of holiness and victory over sin. For one thing, it is of crucial significance that we understand Heb. 10:18, which we discuss in some detail. We briefly discuss Romans 7 and 1 John 1:8, which are the two passages most often used to try to prove that Christians cannot stop sinning this side of glory.

  24. Is Being Rich a Sin? by Stephen Williamson  
    This is something we often do not take seriously. You might be surprised at what the Bible says!

  25. THE LAMB OF GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SANCTUARIES; CH- IV, PART- 3 by Dr Surya Kumar Daimari  
    The main purpose of these series of Bible study will be to make an exegetical survey of the sacrificial Lamb of God in the Old Testament passages mainly in the Sanctuary and its typological significance to the propitiatory and expiatory atonement work of the Lord Jesus Christ in the New as reflected in John 1:29, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

  26. Hebrews Chapters 8-10: "We Have Been Sanctified" Through the Better Sacrifice, Part 7 by Karl Kemp  
    We discuss Hebrews 10:1-10 here in Part 7. These verses, along with most of the verses of Hebrews chapters 8-10, emphasize the point that the new covenant, which was founded on the all-important atoning death of the Son of God, was designed to solve the sin, spiritual death, Satan problem that could not be solved by the old covenant with its animal sacrifices. The emphasis in on the fact that the blood of Jesus is powerful enough to enable believers to walk with the victory over all sin in an abiding state of holiness. Doesn't that sound like good news?

  27. Created in God's Image and Likeness by Jim Schicatano  
    From Genesis 1 - What it means to be created in the image and likeness of God.

  28. THE LAMB OF GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT SANCTUARIES; CH- IV, PART- 2 by Dr Surya Kumar Daimari  
    The main purpose of these series of Bible study will be to make an exegetical survey of the sacrificial Lamb of God in the Old Testament passages mainly in the Sanctuary and its typological significance to the propitiatory and expiatory atonement work of the Lord Jesus Christ in the New as reflected in John 1:29, "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."

  29. Hebrews Chapters 8-10: "We Have Been Sanctified" Through the Better Sacrifice, Part 6 by Karl Kemp  
    We discuss Hebrews 9:23 to the end of chapter 9 here in Part 6. "Once at the consummation of the ages" the Lord Jesus "has been manifested to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself" (Heb. 9:26). To "put away sin" includes making His people (the believers) righteous and holy (with the imputed and imparted righteousness and holiness of God), with the victory over all sin.

  30. God's Abundance by Steve Countryman  
    13 He replied, "You give them something to eat."

    Now Jesus knew that the disciples didn't have enough food to feed the people. But what He spoke was "that which is not as if it were".
