He is Alive see the Six Miracles of Calvary

God’s Design for Marriage

God’s Design for Marriage

Jun 27, 2013

Marriage came into existence, if you believe Jesus, by God’s design. In Matthew 19:4-6 he says “Have you not read that he who created them from beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? “So they are no...

Rev Richard Wurmbrand, a Lutheran pastor, who was imprisoned  for his faith for 14 years in Communist Romania was deprived of...

According to Watchman Nee “To worship the creature rather than the creator is an inbred tendency in us. All the conflict in this book of...

Abortion and the Gospel

Apr 5, 2013

I recently had the opportunity to hear a presentation by a well-known prolife speaker on abortion. The argument against abortion, he said, lay in the answer to the question “Is the fetus a human being or not?” In meticulous fashion he presented his case which in substance said that if you can prove to an abortion proponent or a woman considering...

Maier As for the so-called “Wife of Jesus Gospel” (so-named by its discoverer, Harvard professor Karen King), while the document is in-teresting, it is only another of the long string of Gnostic writings that have been surfacing ever since 1947. Like all the others, it is of little or no use as authentic source material on Jesus. All Gnos-tic...
