Choosing a church PDF Print E-mail

There are various reasons that we hear people choosing churches to attend and join. Typically, the standard reasons I often hear are 'it feels good', 'I like the music', 'it had the best programs', and 'our children liked it best.' Church worship should feel good. Worship hymns should be engaging to the experience. Congregations should be active according to their interpretation of regulatory principles. Children should enjoy worshiping God. However, these are not reasons to join an assembly. We should not choose churches like we pick where to eat. Especially concerning letting children choose a church, we rarely regulate important decisions to the tastes of children. Life would be chaotic, even unhealthy if that practice was followed. As it pertains to 'feelings', the heart is described by the Bible as wicked and unknowable (Jeremiah 17:9). Emotions can often be deceiving. When we base our decisions on any of these guidelines we are choosing according to preference and not conviction. We are unknowingly approaching God on our terms and not on biblical convictions.

What makes the Difference? PDF Print E-mail

The resurrection of our Savior is the greatest proof of his divinity and complete success in saving sinners. Any person could see this sign and know that Jesus really was God manifest in the flesh. However, all did not believe even though there was irrefutable evidence. This was even true before Christ’s resurrection when he was healing and performing miracles. How could individuals see these miraculous events and not acknowledge Jesus as Lord?

Parallel Between the Cross and Creation PDF Print E-mail

In typical prophetic fashion, it makes sense that Jesus would complete his salvific work on the 6th day of the week (Friday) by saying "It is finished" and then rest in the grave all of the Jewish Sabbath (Saturday). Our savior then rose on the first day of the week (Sunday), signifying a new beginning as he now ever lives to make intercession for us.

"When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost." John 19:30

"And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made." Genesis 2:2

"I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed." Daniel 7:13-14

"Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them." Hebrews 7:25

The Record of Crucifixion Week from Mark's Gospel PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ben Winslett

Last month, Josh Winslett posted an article discussing the day of the week on which Jesus was crucified. The traditional view of Christianity is that Jesus was crucified on a Friday. In recent times, this has been questioned because of the prophecy of Christ regarding the sign of the prophet Jonah, that He would be in the earth for three days and three night. Some take that to be a figure of speech or an idiom (of which the Bible is absolutely full) and others take that language to insist a full 72 hours.
