The Walking Dead (From door to door)

Jehovah’s Witnesses are quite proud of their record of faithfully taking their message from door to door. For example, on the back cover of the December 1, 1996, Watchtower magazine, Catholics and Protestants are bashed for neglecting evangelism, particularly of the door-knocking variety. The publication proudly boasts, “Despite Christendom’s failure to evangelize, more than five million of Jehovah’s Witnesses are following Jesus’ command to ‘go and make disciples of people of all the nations’ (Matthew … Continue reading

Is Your Faith in Vain?

We just finished celebrating the event which is the highlight of the Christian calendar and indeed central to the Christian faith. The resurrection has special implications in several areas. Where the sacrifice on the cross paid for our sin and gave us peace with God, the resurrection conquered death and guaranteed that the redeemed would likewise be resurrected and see God face to face!

The blinding of a person’s will happens when he or she has fully invested themselves into something which turns out to be a terrible mistake. Not willing to accept … Continue reading

Out of concern for the finances of his family – the medical expenses associated with his cancer treatment, as well as their financial well-being after his passing – he decides he “must” step over the legal line just a little bit, just for a … Continue reading

Sparks through Stubble

(Wisdom of Solomon 3:7-8) You may be asking yourself, “Cool verse. But what is the Wisdom of Solomon?  I thought it was the Song of Solomon.” Well the Wisdom of Solomon is a book that was heavily quoted during the years Jesus was on the … Continue reading
