Thank God for His Grace

Don Johnson A very short post today. I’d like you to read the testimony of my friend, Dan Olinger. If you are a believer, you will find blessing in his brief remarks. You will identify — his experience is your experience, just the details are different. No doubt, you aren’t as “exuberant” as Dan (his […]

Acts 2:38 and Baptismal Regeneration

Wally Morris The question of whether baptism is necessary for salvation is a question with which many Christians struggle. The connection between baptism and Christian testimony is ingrained in the culture of many people.

Believers and Unbelievers

Warren Vanhetloo Differences and distinctions are common throughout the world. An important division of the human race is male or female. A significant division in Scripture is believer or unbeliever. Though unisex adherents would tend to obliterate the male/ female distinction, it is normally evident and surely will persist.

Straight Cuts: “The Just Shall Live by Faith” (Habakkuk 2:4b)

Mike Harding This inspired text penned by the ancient prophet Habakkuk is quoted three times by two NT authors. In the NT, the prophet’s profound utterance comprises the “soul of Pauline theology.”[1] Boice comments, “This is a great text. It could even be called the great text of the Bible.
