When Adam sinned in the Garden of Paradise, he wrongly assumed His God would be angry but instead God came looking for Him to take His regular evening walk. When Abraham sent his wife, Sarah, into Pharaoh’s tent to protect his own life by allowing her to have sex with another man, God told Pharaoh […]

“Man is something that must be overcome.” Man! Nor only the bad, the godless, the unbelieving, the immoral man, but man in every form, man as such, man as he is, irrespective of his evils, or of his noble, helpful, good characteristics and high aspirations righteous and unrighteous, godless and pious man. There is a […]

There is a great deal of discussion and debate today about “Christian values”. The term is used to describe the spiritual/moral principles around which believers build their life. On the surface it would seem that defending Christian values is a noble cause. Yet the Bible never teaches that our life should be built around a […]

In August of 1521, Martin Luther wrote a letter to his friend, Philipp Melanchthon. Here’s what he had to say about raw grace: It suffices that through God’s glory we have recognized the Lamb who takes away the sin of the world. No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill […]

Romans 4:8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin. You are blessed today because all your sins are forgiven in Christ. God does not count your sins against you. Instead, He counts you righteous in Christ. That is why you are the blessed man to whom the Lord does not […]

I’ve not seen clearer statistical evidence that fewer Christians die of cancer than non-believers, or that they are immune in greater degree from the diseases that afflict the human race. Some of the kindest, most selfless persons I have known have had more than their share of bad health. The fact that they belong to […]

You shall not take the name of God in vain. Exodus 20:7 Many Christians think the second commandment is a prohibition against cussing. But I believe the real meaning of speaking the name of God “in vain” is to speak God’s name casually or trivially, with a false presumption of understanding the Mystery—as if we […]

One might think that with the Bible as the centre of Christianity, the unity of Christians could be easily realized. Unfortunately, this has not proved to be true.
