The Corruption of Modern day Idolatry

A closer look at Romans 1:20, 23 "20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse" (Romans 1:20). The wrath of God is due the ungodly because they hinder truth through false teaching and ungodly practices. Furthermore, they make it manifest that they have clearly ignored the obvious signs of God's "invisible things" (i.e., "His power and divinity"). Though invisible, God's power and divinity are made manifests by "the things that are made. " The Gentile who rejected God's laws for his own religious practices is without excuse because the material universe proves that God is (see Psalm 19:1ff; 33:6-9; Jeremiah 5:22 and 32:17-18). God is incomparably great (see Isaiah 40:12-25). God has manifested (made known to man) his attributes by his creation....

Are They Few That Are Saved?

Jesus was once asked, "Lord, are they few that are saved?" (Luke 13:23). When one looks to the entirety of the Bible, he soon discovers that much of it is a historical record of a multitude of people's failures. During the days of Noah, "Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually... and Jehovah said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground; both man, and beast, and creeping things, and birds of the heavens; for it repents me that I have made them. But Noah found favor in the eyes of Jehovah" (Genesis 6:5-8). God brought a worldwide flood upon the earth that "The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will...

I Timothy

Paul writes the letter of I Timothy to Timothy from Nicopolis after being released from his two year imprisonment in Rome around 66 AD. The apostle Paul, and his traveling companion Timothy, had apparently traveled from Judea to Macedonia after being released from prison. Before traveling and wintering at Nicopolis it is likely that Paul and Timothy visited with the Hebrew Christians at Judea. The two of them then travel toward Macedonia and Paul leaves Timothy in Ephesus to correct many existing problems among the brethren there (see 1 Timothy 1:3). Paul continues to Nicopolis without his beloved child in the faith Timothy and sometime later writes this epistle (Titus 3:12). I Timothy sets forth the supreme nature of Jehovah God and the validity of His divine revelation. Secondly, Paul's letter sets forth divine instructions for Timothy the Lord's minister in the faith. Thirdly, the letter exposes doctrines and lifestyles...

ASAPH

Asaph is the author of twelve Psalms (Psalm 50 and 73-83). It may be argued that not all twelve of these Psalms were written by the same Asaph. Some argue that the name Asaph was common and likely passed down from generation to generation making it impossible to determine who is who. Others argue that the dates of the twelve Psalms span too great a time to be from the pen of one man. It may be equally argued; however, that these twelve Psalms were written by the same man. Each Psalm bears the same name. The time frame of the considered Psalms can in no way be determined with exactness. This article shall approach the character of Asaph from the view that one man wrote all twelve of the Psalms that bear his name in the superscriptions. Asaph was a man of many hats in society. The scriptures tell...

Does the Book of Revelation Teach The World is About to End?

The apostles once asked Jesus when the world would end (Matthew 24:3). Jesus answered, "But of that day and hour knows no one, not even the angels of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only" (Matthew 24:36). Why didn't Jesus give the apostles a straight answer to their question? Why didn't the Lord say, "The world will end on December of 2012?" The answer to this question may best be answered by Jesus at Acts 1:6-7. The apostles had asked Jesus when the kingdom of God would be restored to Israel. Jesus replied, "It is not for you to know times or seasons, which the Father hath set within his own authority" (Acts 1:7). The reason it was not for the apostles, or you and I today, to know the "times or seasons" of God's own authority is because God desires that man live faithfully throughout this life as...
