Principles of Christian Service from the Unprofitable Servant

Luke 17:7–10 Matt Recker FrontLine • November/December 2007. Serving God is wonderful and satisfying … sometimes. It is fantastic if we do it for God and not man, and if we accomplish it in God’s power and not our own. When we lose focus on God, then service can be burdensome; and when done in […]

Straight Cuts: Christ as Firstborn (Colossians 1:15)

Tom Wheeler FrontLine • March/April 2002. One of the most important doctrines of our Christian faith is the deity of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus must be God to save us (Isa. 45:21, 22). Jehovah’s Witnesses, among others, deny this Biblical truth. One passage that they twist in an attempt to deny Christ’s […]

Why We’re Still Here – Previews

We are promoting FrontLine this week. We offered a look at the latest issue with its opening editorials and contents on Monday. Yesterday we published the lead article by Mark Ward, “Why I’m Still Here.” The articles in this issue of the magazine consist of testimonials from younger fundamentalists speaking to their reasons for remaining […]

Why I’m Still Here

Mark L. Ward Jr. Few people willingly call themselves “fundamentalists” today. I try to do so only when I get to explain what I mean. So let me explain: I’m a (Christian, Protestant, Baptist) “fundamentalist” because I value four things—four things which make me believe, in turn, that the particular brand of fundamentalism I inherited […]
