Can People Be Good?

There is an implied question between verses 23 and 24 with the use of the word “for.” Why did Barnabas do what he did? Because “…he was a good man…” (v. 24). Barnabas was a “good” man according to the Scriptures. But wait, I thought God said that all have sinned and fallen short of His glory and that our righteousness is filthy? Yes, God has said that and it is true.

Gospel Reset: Salvation Made Relevant Book Review

Christians need to be able to understand how to present the Gospel to people today who are largely godless and have no real concept of a loving God who hates sin. Most when they hear the word “sin” think of the archaic Dark Ages. Too many today believe God is simply “love” and that’s it. What they fail to understand is that God is also holy, perfect, righteous and for those who never come to Him in need of salvation, He becomes their Judge.

Micah Explains True Religion in One Short Verse

Micah also states that we should “love kindness.” What does that mean? It means we should endeavor to be kind to all people and by its very nature, it means that we put our own wants and needs on the back burner. You cannot be concerned about how others “feel” if you are concerned primarily with yourself. To be kind means to always think in terms of how theĀ otherĀ person feels. What’s happening with them? What are they having to deal with? How can I make their life easier?

Daniel 11, Part 2

If Daniel 11 shows us anything, it shows us that God is intimately involved in humanity’s affairs is actively directs things to the climax of this age so that His purposes – all of them will be accomplished – while still allowing humanity to have some semblance of free will, in spite of the fall of man.

Goodbye Rusty Boy

We must walk where God would have us walk. We must empty our hearts of the things that have too big a grasp on us. Whether it’s a pet, social media, TV, or even a person, we must learn to put everything into proper perspective. We must also learn to allow God to work in our lives for our betterment and for His glory. We must. There are too many things in this world that can and often succeed in pulling our attention from God. Sometimes, because of it, God has to do drastic surgery on us.

Daniel Chapter 11, Part 1

Before I get into that chapter, I’d like to point out something. There are several schools of thought related to the entirety of the book of Daniel, including chapter eleven. As with everything else biblical, critics have come out of the woodwork to either downplay, attempt to negate, or even change the way they want us to look at this eleventh chapter of Daniel. In a broad brush stroke, some of the “concerns” these so-called higher critics have is applied to the entire book of Daniel, not just specific chapters, like chapter eleven.

What’s Your Level of Commitment?

Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and Daniel had spent decades living for God. By the time they got to Babylon, it was firmly embedded in their thinking and outlook. They could no more set aside their obedience to God than they would drink muddy, putrid water. There was no question about their direction. They were all in for God regardless of the cost.
