Those ‘Divisive’ Bible-believing Christians: Why Being Divisive is not so Bad After All…Good and Evil Division

I once had a Calvary Chapel pastor tell me that “truth always unites people”.  I then asked him why Jesus said the following: “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” (Luke 12:51-53) Calvary Chapel churches often have… Read More

Did the pharisees get rebuked because they obeyed Christ’s teaching or because they disregarded it? Obedience vs. legalism in churches today

“But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.” (Titus 2:1) Mark 7 is just one of those chapters in the Bible that is simply fascinating.  Jesus was (and is) so witty how He knew just what to say and how to say it.  When He answers questions with questions, it is totally mind-boggling (Matthew 21:24).  Jesus, being one with God, is truly and infinitely intelligent and knows just what to say to every single person given the situation.  He speaks with mercy and compassion to His sheep (and potential sheep)… Read More

The REAL definition of the word ‘tribulation’…

The word ‘tribulation’ means persecution, not God’s wrath: “Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.” Acts 4:22 KJV. The word ‘tribulation’ does not mean God’s wrath. Why would we enter into the kingdom of God ‘through much of God’s wrath’? There are many Bible scholars and pastors who say that the word ‘tribulation’ means God’s wrath. This is simply not Bible truth and just another lie that most Christians believe because that… Read More

Why do so many professing Christians follow the status quo? It is human to stand with the crowd, it is divine to stand alone…

By Paul Pilgrim of Remnant Radio: It is human to stand with the crowd, it is divine to stand alone. It is man-like to follow the people, to drift with the tide. It is God-like to follow a principle, to stem the tide. It is natural to compromise conscience and follow the social and religious fashion for the sake of gain or pleasure. It is divine to sacrifice both on the altar of truth and duty. “No man stood with me, but all men forsook me” wrote the battle-scarred apostle in describing… Read More

The Loneliness of the Christian, by A.W. Tozer

Hope this encourages you… By A. W. Tozer The loneliness of the Christian results from his walk with God in an ungodly world, a walk that must often take him away from the fellowship of good Christians as well as from that of the unregenerate world. His God-given instincts cry out for companionship with others of his kind, others who can understand his longings, his aspirations, his absorptions in the love of Christ; and because with his circle of friends there are few who share his inner experiences, he’s forced to walk… Read More

Division based on sound doctrine vs. division based on unsound doctrine; one is right and one is wrong; Romans 16:17 and contending for the faith

“I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them”. Romans 16:17 As Christians, we are called to teach and preach the Truth. Sometimes, in doing so, especially in bringing a correction, we may be labeled as “causing trouble”. This is a tactic that the false teachers love to use to avoid returning to the Word of God. The Bible makes it clear in Romans 16:17 that bringing Truth… Read More
