The Common Faith

According to the common faith -Titus 1:4 Beloved, while using all diligence to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you and exhort you to earnestly contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints. -Jude 3 I've written many things in this blog over the...

Satan in the Bible

"That we may not be taken advantage of by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes." 2 Corinthians 2:11 Why would I write a post about Satan? That seems a little creepy. Yet, perhaps the subtle serpent's greatest feat is veiling all of the Lord's believers from seeing who he is, what he... Continue Reading →

The Victory Over Sin

Do you think that it is possible to experience victory over sin today? For the longest time I thought that sin was a nagging problem that takes a life-time of self-willed discipline and determination to reduce.

Calling on the Name of the Lord

"For the same Lord is Lord of all and rich to all who call upon Him." Romans 10:12b Many Christians are familiar with some idea of calling on the name of the Lord. It is often associated with initial salvation and part of the process of how to be saved. While this is very true,... Continue Reading →
