Jesus occasionally taught in the synagogues, the meeting places of the Jews, but most of his teaching was done outdoors to the multitudes along the way. He left these last words for his disciples: “As you are going, preach the gospel to the whole world” (Mk 16:15). He traveled to all the towns and villages,


Stubbornness is unyielding refusal to change one’s mind or course of action. In the Bible this word described rebellion against God and His Word. It can describe the gluttonous and disobedient son who rebels at his father’s command (Dt 21:18-21; 9:27). It can also be a complete rejection of God in turning to “iniquity and


Unless you know Greek you will not recognize this title: amartia (hamartia). It means to “miss the mark,” translated in English Bibles as “SIN.” Romans 6:23 says “all have sinned.” We have all “missed the mark.” The scriptures of the Holy Bible give us words of truth from God: “Thy word is truth” (Jn 4:24).


“The Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O Lord of hosts, blessed be the man that trusteth in thee.” (Psalm 84:11-12 KJV) If you are in the midst of suffering, you might be compared to a


God instructs about behavior of older men and older women, then about younger women to whom we now give attention. The apostle Paul wrote about this when writing to the young evangelist Titus (2:4), and added these things should be taught “with all authority” (vs 15). Men and women are to teach younger women, but


Last week we looked at how God used older men in His service. Today we consider older women. “Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good… to train the younger women to love their husbands


More people are living to advanced years than ever before. Some folks resent getting old, and others resent old people. In an age that worships the goddess of youth, we need divine guidance to develop proper attitudes toward our retirement years. Moses did his greatest work between ages 80 and 120. John wrote Revelation when


Man’s law approves homosexual marriage. God’s law says marriage is one man and one woman till death separates them, and that the sexually immoral shall not go to heaven (Gen 2:18-24; Eph 5:20-33). Man’s law says do not preach the gospel, but wait for others to ask you about it. God’s law says “go preach


Our merciful Father has given forceful warnings in all ages concerning dangers ahead. For the most part, warnings are ignored, resulting in disastrous consequences. There are always stubborn unbelievers who will not listen but refuse to evacuate and thousands have perished. We can trace Bible history in at least seven eras of how God has


In today’s world, the politically correct thing is to either keep quiet, or to agree to disagree. But what about God’s Holy Word? Should we not be bold and not ashamed when our Bibles plainly speak the truth? We all want to go to heaven. Paul wrote, “I am not ashamed of the gospel for
