The Root Of Modern Christian Ignorance
The modern Christian church is teaming with people who say they are believers but seem to know very little about doctrine, including what their own denomination believes and where those beliefs originated. I believe there are at least two major causes for this, besides the fact that there are probably a lot of goats among the sheep in many congregations. One cause for this ignorance is that modern society is structured to create… Continue reading
The Magnitude Of The Importance Of Spiritual Truth
The Lord Jesus Christ said something extremely profound as He stood before His executioner Pontius Pilate two thousand years ago. The King of Kings could have said many things to that man standing in front of Him who was about to send Him to the cross, but this is primarily what He desired to say:

Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
