Can sin seperate us from God?

Sin separates man from God.  Can a born again Christian, a son or daughter of God, be separated from God by sin?  Jesus said he would never leave us or forsake us.  Hebrews 13:5.  God will never turn his back on us, but we can turn our back on him. When we sin, we are …

Can faith alone save us? Yes!

James 2: 14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? Do we need to mix our faith with works to be saved? Is this what James was saying in this passage? Galatians 2:16Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of …

Can we recognize the true Gospel of God from a counterfit? You’ll know them by their works.

You think it would be easy to know a true teacher of the Word of God, from a false one. Or that it would be simple to recognize the genuine Gospel of Christ, from a counterfeit.  It is, if we know what to look for. Satan however is cleaver, and out to deceive both those …

Working out our salvation.

We have been experiencing record hot temperatures recently. This has made for very uncomfortable days, but very pleasant nights,  here in the finger lakes.  I was walking around our back yard the other night, gazing up at the stars and talking with God our Father and Jesus, also contemplating a bit about my life.

How to become righteous.

The bible speaks a lot about being righteous. But can we be righteous before God? We see a world full of sin and decadence. People are cruel to one another, and the news and TV is often quite depressing.  It is easy to look at sin, that we perceive as worse then our own, and …

How is a person saved?

What must a person do to become saved, and have eternal life with God? One might think that this would be the most important question on a persons mind. Growing up, I always thought God was in heaven, writing down every good and bad thing I did. I thought, if the good outweighed the bad …
