Modesty Matters

In like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works (1 Timothy 2:9-10). Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting…

Worship or Entertainment?

There are some meaningful, biblical new songs. Like many others, I am not opposed to singing some new songs in church. Why, though, do so many churches have to throw out all the old loved and tested songs of the faith? Instead of singing some new and some of the once-familiar hymns, many churches now…

Are You Trusting in God or in Yourself?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil (Proverbs 3:7). God has advice for us. It is up to us whether we are wise and listen to His advice, or whether…

He Was There All the Time

I remembered God, and was troubled; I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed (Psalm 77:3). I am amazed at how many difficulties so many people face in this short life. Imagine soldiers showing up at your house suddenly and taking your entire family away, separating you, and never seeing them again, as happened to many…

Do We Lower our Standards Because of the World?

Be holy, for I am holy, God says (Leviticus 20:26; 1 Peter 1:16). If you say that you abide in Jesus, then you ought to walk just as Jesus walked (1 John 2:6). There are many other Bible verses that could be used for this topic, but the point here is that God’s Word should…

Slow Down and Do It Right

Slow Down and Do It Right

I have a great wife. As with most spouses, though, we do not do everything exactly the same. For example, for many projects that I have to do, my goal is simply to get it done. I want to do it well, but I do not want to take all day to do a project…

We Didn’t Know, Part 2

When all that generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation arose after them who did not know the LORD nor the work which He had done for Israel. (Judges 2:10) In Exodus 1:8, we see that a secular leader arose in Egypt who did not understand how God’s servant had been used to…

We Didn’t Know, Part 1

Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. (Exodus 1:8) Here we have an example of a man, a national leader, who did not know, and therefore did not appreciate, the influence of Godly people in his nation’s past. Joseph had faithfully followed the God of Israel and was used…

Safe Spaces

We occasionally hear about safe spaces. Often, this is in reference to some designated place on a college or university campus that is supposed to be a place where students can go and be free from any opposing viewpoints, where one can be free from being judged or being made to feel uncomfortable or unwelcome….

Are We Ready with Truth?

The United States “Supreme” Court ruled that under the “Equal Protection Clause” of the Constitution, the University of Texas could use race in determining college admission. Not only is this not logical (that it is equality to discriminate based upon race rather than treat all people equally), but they misuse a phrase from the Constitution…
