Hope for a Lost World

Posted on August 6, 2017 at 9:45 AM Comments comments (0)

In the world that we live in, sin is a very present reality. Everyday we hear about murders, robberies, and of children who have been abused. We live in a world filled with evil, and evil people doing evil things, yet there are those who would want to deny the reality of sin and evil. They would argue that man is simply a product of evolution, that what we do is simply a result of our privative past, that we simply do the things which were once necessary for us to survive. If ...

Rejecting the Truth (Part 7) - Embracing the True Truth

Posted on April 24, 2016 at 9:00 AM Comments comments (0)

      James 1:14-15 tells us: “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.” (KJV) Last week, we talked about Eve's Deception, and we, like Eve, are easily deceived. Why? Because we want to believe what we want to believe. See, we have our own agenda, and we, ourselves, are largely responsible for any deception th...

Rejecting the Truth (Part 6)

     Now I realize that after reading the title, some of you probably said to yourselves, “Oh No, not again, come on Tim, you have already spent 5 weeks on this subject, and enough is enough. You are beating this into the ground.” Well, let me ask you this question, do you know anyone who you think might benefit from what I have been talking about for these 5 weeks? Now I suspect that your answer would be “yes, but they're not the one reading th...

Rejecting the Truth - Part 5 " Hitler's Dream/Accepting a Lie"

Posted on April 10, 2016 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

I'm afraid that people are far to often led, that is misled, by people who may or may not have evil intentions. People will choose to believe a lie, simply because they want to believe it. Isn't that the way most scams work? As we have often heard it said: “If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is.” People will believe that a lie is true simply because they want to believe it! It is easy for us to believe someone who...

Rejecting the Truth (Part 4) "Rejecting Jesus"

Posted on March 20, 2016 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (0)

    For the past 3 weeks we have talked about people rejecting the truth. Well, today we celebrate what is referred to as Palm Sunday, The day that we remember Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, the beginning of what is referred to as the Passion Week. Bible scholars point out the many ways in which Jesus was presenting Himself as the Messiah, but for our purposes it is enough to see the reaction of His followers and of the common people as He came into the city t...

Rejecting the Truth (Part 3) "Rejecting Absolutes"

Posted on March 13, 2016 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (0)

    It has been said that once you have rejected the Truth, there is nothing left to believe but a lie. Sadly, I believe that this very concept explains a great deal of what is going on in our society under the pretense of what some would call enlightenment.

     To understand what I am talking about, just imagine that you and a hundred other people were trying to cross a barren wilderness. There were no distinct landmarks a...

Rejecting the Truth (Part 2) "Rejecting Creation"

Posted on March 6, 2016 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)

     Last week we began discussing the fact that people reject the truth simply because they choose to. Today we are going to discuss this further and see how this has played out in the world that we live in today.

     A good example of this can be seen within the field of science where it is OK to believe that matter is eternal, but one should never consider the possibility that there is an eternal God. Where it is O...

Rejecting the Truth (Part 1) "Rejecting Knowledge"

Posted on February 28, 2016 at 9:10 AM Comments comments (0)

     Hosea was a prophet to the Northern Kingdom of Israel during its last days before it was invaded and finally destroyed by the Assyrian Empire in 722 BC. Through him, God told Israel: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6). Ironically, in the world that we live in we hear very much the same thing from many of our politicians: “The problem is the break down of our educational system”; “the problem is that we d...
