“For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward His name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.” (Hebrews 6:10). The Bible foretells that in the last days, there shall be a falling away from the faith.  That apostasy can [...]

Some people and religions present God as some sort of divine tyrant whose anger is never appeased.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  The God of the Bible is just, but also is loving, merciful, and long-suffering.  And He can be pleased [1 Corinthians1:21].  A close examination of Scripture will reveal that His [...]

The Bible teaches clearly the purity, or impeccability, of Jesus Christ.  Verses like this, “For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens” [Hebrews 7:26] make it clear.  Jesus Himself said, “The prince of this world (the devil) cometh, and hath nothing [...]
