The wages of sin is Death.

Daily we sin, and daily we are forgiven. Daily we fall, and daily we are lifted up. Daily we come short of the mark, and daily we are helped and guided toward it. Lets remember that each day, a born again Christian, is washed clean by the blood of our Lord Jesus. None of us …

Why did God respect Abel’s offering and not Cain’s?

The Bible says God had respect to Abel’s offering of the firstling of his flock, but had not respect to the offering of Cain when he offered the fruit of the ground.  Why would God make such a distinction? It might appear as if God is not just, and arbitrarily chooses to have respect or …

Does God reward our good behavior, and punish our bad behavior?

I still find myself, at times, stumbling over that stumbling  stone, the grace of Jesus.  Why would a Christian say such a thing?  A Christian can backslide by abandoning his or her morals, and getting caught up in the world, and the lust of the flesh. A Christian can also backslide by abandoning  the righteousness …

God is not punishing sinners at this time.

God is not judging and condemning people or nations for their sins at this time. I recently heard a preacher on the radio state, if God does not punish the United States for its sins, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology. People and nations seem to be sinning more openly and brazenly then ever, …

Are sickness and disease, trials and tribulations, God’s way of helping, and correcting us, if and when we go astray? Psalms 103: 13Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them …

Judging others.

I like to think that I’m not a judgmental person. But that is what I would like to think. Thinking something, and being something, are entirely different.  I also would like to think that I’m a good person. That in the light of God’s word, doesn’t seem to be working so well either.  God  loves …

Haiti earthquake and God’s wrath.

Is God punishing Haiti by sending an earthquake to their country? I have heard this proposed already by religious  leaders, who should be ashamed of themselves. Rom. 3.23 states, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” We all deserve to die, ” For the wages of sin is death, but …

Did God create hell?

Did God create a hell, where sinners are punished for all eternity ? “God is love,” 1 John 4.8, would it make sense for a God, who is the very definition of love to create such a place?  In Genesis, God created the heavens and the earth, and he looked upon his creation and, “behold, …
