Who Should You Marry & Why? (Part 1)

Matt Recker Getting married is one of life’s most revealing, most character making (or breaking) decisions. In Malachi’s day God’s people were dealing “treacherously” against God and one another. (This word appears five times in Malachi 2:10-16 and means to betray) How? By marrying unbelievers or those who worshiped “strange gods” (Malachi 2:11), and divorcing […]

George Stiekes Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.

Virtue

Don Johnson An article at The American Conservative explores virtue in our modern culture. Virtue no longer is a matter of character, where the individual controls his passions while pursuing an ideal higher than he is.

A Basic Definition of the Trinity

Thomas Overmiller Any description of the Trinity must include two basic elements. First, it must affirm that there is one eternal God. Second, it must affirm that this God has always existed as three persons. That is why theologians use trinity to describe this “three-in-oneness” of God. He is one God (uni- means “one”) and […]

Unity in a Baptist Church?

Charles R. Phelps FrontLine • March/April 2009 Some have said, “Baptist churches multiply by division!” Such an observation must not be taken lightly, for it was our Savior’s prayer that His disciples be models of divine unity reflecting the very tri-unity of the Godhead (John 17:22). The absence of unity in the church requires prayerful, […]
