The Biblical Teaching of Hell (Part One)

Jerry Sivnksty FrontLine • September/October 2009 29 The preaching of death and Hell has always been a means of bringing many individuals to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

God Setteth the Solitary in Families

John Vaughn FrontLine • May/June 2003 God’s people have taken refuge in the Psalms for centuries, and well they should. Psalm 68 is rich with promises and words of comfort.

The Neglected Stepchild of the Bible

Layton Talbert FrontLine • May/June 2003 This column has previously addressed the neglected stepchild of the New Testament, the diminutive but beautiful Book of Philemon.

How to Apply the Bible to Entertainment Choices Today

Brian Hand FrontLine • January/February 2014 Entertainment is not our enemy, but our Enemy employs entertainment effectively.[1] Pretending, as some Christians do, that the Enemy is either incapable or unwilling to use entertainment to accomplish his agenda is naïve at best.

Dave Sproul FrontLine • March/April 2014 Regenerate church membership is a Baptist distinctive that can be traced back to the Book of Acts.
