1 John 5:16-17 is a difficult passage to interpret and one that has confused many, including teachers. This study aims to explain the passage's meaning within bounds of the surrounding context. Once chapter five is properly understood, the interpretation offered in this writing should make sense and speak for itself.

Christian colleges, universities, and seminaries have their advantages and disadvantages. This list contains advice and things to consider for the prospective attendee contemplating this choice.

As written within the study itself, there is nothing wrong about having programs in the church. But the emphasis needs to be on the truth and helping others grow in it. There are many issues within them that need to be cleaned up so that many programs would either disappear or change forms if the Bible really became the central issue.
Communion is the only ritual the Bible commands us to practice today. Truth be told, there is a lot of confusion surrounding how, when, and where it should be done. What is communion about and what does it symbolize? We will answer all these questions and more in this examination.

This page will answer whether denominations are the right approach for the church. The short and simple answer is that they are not.
This page contains my views on whether dreams and visions still occur within and outside the church today. I believe it is possible, but there are other things stressed and addressed in this study. Experiences (whether true or false; satanic or from God) can be dangerous if mishandled.
This survey briefly reviews some of the most prominent instances of major satanic/demonic attacks on the human race. The sole purpose of these assaults was to thwart God's plan by destroying the Messiah's physical bloodline and all of His spiritual seed. Also discussed --- there are different biblical characters mentioned throughout the old testament that symbolize the antichrist in their unbelief and wicked actions towards God's people, especially the Jews. We will briefly examine those in this paper as well.

The following is a basic biblical examination on the issue of homosexuality and transgenderism. This work is not apologetic in nature but states basic truths that most believers should already know and understand. For those who may find some of this information new and informative, hopefully some of this content will be helpful.
The answers to the two questions in the title of this small topical study have some variables which we will address. Additionally, this page will take a look at some other things worth mentioning.
The subject in this paper (how to walk by the Spirit) is not a complicated one to understand and is something all growing believers will naturally learn how to do as they progress in their walk with the Lord.
Believers don't need to feel like unqualified "phonies" as long as they're doing what the Lord wants them to do. Therefore, what we (and others) may think of ourselves in that regard matters little.
How should believers judge others and how should they not judge? I answer these questions in this topic.
Believers must learn not to let any of their negative past experiences sour their present and future relationship with God and others. That is what this topic is about.

The believer will gain nothing abandoning their faith in Christ. This page will discuss some of the most common reasons for apostasy within the church. The most important decision for every Christian after getting saved is to remain in Jesus Christ through committed spiritual growth, progress, and production. The reasons to stay true to the faith are innumerable.
What the world esteems is of little or no value compared to the spiritual treasures that await all believers in eternity. So even though living the Christian life is far from easy and takes a lot of sacrifice, there is everything to be gained through our growing faith and service to Jesus Christ. The treasures and pleasures of this world are fleeting and temporary. Therefore, I discuss how this is not the case for the wealth awaiting the believer in God's kingdom.

We will touch on a few important points with the sole purpose to steer the believer out of legalism.
There are various styles and approaches to teaching God's Word because there is no one size fits all. Likewise, the various preparations required to teach will vary from individual to individual because there is a division of labor among pastors. All believers are called to different things.
Here we will answer whether it was the blood (physical death) of Christ which paid for or sins our the Spiritual death He underwent. We will discuss the meaning, symbolism, and significance of both.
Pride was the first and original sin that Lucifer committed before God expelled him. Therefore, it is imperative that believers take pains to avoid falling into it themselves (even though we all stumble in many ways). This page will discuss the dangers of such an attitude.
This very brief page will refute and disprove the fallacy known as the "Imputation of Adam's Sin."
