Many people want to say what is…

“Many people want to say what is worthy of God and what is not worthy of God; however, the only true way to find out what is worthy of God is to see what God has or has not done in the Bible. Whatever God has done is worthy of him.” —Jim Sheerer, NT Commentary, 983.

If we love the truth we will be…

If we love the truth, we will be intense and focused students of the Bible, for God’s word is truth, Jn 17.17.

Those who call the Bible a letter…

Those who call the Bible a “letter of love” badly mischaracterize it. It is, instead, God’s “covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments” Dan 9.4 NIV.

Ignoring Bible texts about a subject is dangerous…

Ignoring Bible texts about a subject is dangerous. Picking and choosing texts will deny the will of God. For example, you can’t read a passage like Ephesians 2.8-9 without acknowledge others like Hebrews 5.9.

When you say My church teaches …

When you say, “My church teaches …”, or “My pastor (preacher, priest, etc.) says …”, instead of saying, “The Bible teaches …”, you have abandoned the word of God and confirmed that you belong to a human religion.

The original order in the Bible verse reads…

The original order in the Bible verse reads, “Repent, and each one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins” Acts 2.38. One new self-styled “evangelical” version puts it this way: “You must repent, for the forgiveness of sins, and each one must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.” Why do you think it does that?

If we go to the Scriptures and do…

If we go to the Scriptures and do not see Jesus, we have missed the purpose of their testimony. Just like others have done. Jesus himself said, “You study the scriptures thoroughly because you think in them you possess eternal life, and it is these same scriptures that testify about me, but you are not willing to come to me so that you may have life” Jn 5.39-40.
