"Truth is Perished"




A sermon was preached by Jeremiah at the gate of the temple of Jehovah (Jeremiah 7:1). The thesis of the sermon was that "truth is perished' from the people of God (Jeremiah 7:28). God's people would neither receive instruction nor obey it (Jeremiah 7:28). They made the decision to walk by their own human ideas (counsels) and thereby illustrated their stubborn...

Was Jeremiah a False Teacher?

 Nebuchadnezzar had marched on Judah destroying all the cities in his path, just as God had warned the Israelites. The king of Babylon now sets up Gedaliah as a governor over Judah (Jeremiah 40:7). Gedaliah encourages the surviving Jews to submit to the rule of Babylon (Jeremiah 40:9ff). Ishmael, a man of royal descent that had found refuge in Ammon, ...

Do Covenants License Sin?







Covenants no more give one a license to sin than civil law allows carjacking. The fact is that God's people are citizens of a kingdom that has laws that must be followed (cf. Eph. 2:19-22). The apostle Paul writes, "Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Godforbid " (Romans 6:1-2). The fact that sin exists proves law's current state of exist...

Are We Born Sinners?

John Calvin is known for developing the doctrine of "Calvinism." Calvinism is defined by the acronym TULIP. The "T" stands for total hereditary depravity. Some believe that this is what David was teaching at Psalm 51:5 when he said, "5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me." David was not teaching that all men are born in sin. David is saying, contextually, that we are all born into a world where sin rules the minds of the majority. The "wicked" are not born into this world as sinners but rather begin early on in life to pursuing the paths of sin and lies. Another passage of interest is found at Psalm 58:3. The psalmist writes, "3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies." Bible students cannot afford to rip passages of scripture out of their...

Wild Tongues and Defiled Bodies

James 3:5-12 James writes, "So the tongue also is a little member, and boasts great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire!" (James 3:5). The "tongue" is likened unto a bridle in the horse's mouth and the rudder that guides a great ship. A tongue not governed by the word of God can grow out of control like a horse that rejects the bridle and a ship whose rudder is broken. A tongue that boasts or brags of self accomplishments, in the areas of teaching, has not achieved its desired results of saving souls. Words that cause man to err can have far reaching results. A small fire from one match can turn into a devastating thousand acre forest fire. Even so, words of error can adversely affect the souls of thousands of people. "And the tongue is a fire: the world of iniquity among...
