Father Jörgensen’s Questionings

A week ago, I was asked to baptize an infant later that morning. I have misgivings about it because nowhere in the Bible is there any such thing as infant baptism. Jesus wasn't baptized until He was thirty years old. As a baby, He was dedicated to the Lord. Last night I read every scripture …

Love Compels Us

Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too.  Are we commending ourselves to you again? No, we are giving you a reason to be proud of us, so you can answer those who brag about having a spectacular …

Fear and Wisdom

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom - Psalm 111:10 What does it mean to "fear" the Lord? Does it mean to be terrified of Him? No. It means to be in reverence of Him (to have and show the utmost respect) and who wouldn't be once they come to know Him? The psalmist actually gives us some …

Breaking Up With Mandy

Brody Goes to Natalia

"What's the matter, Brody?" She could tell that he was upset about something. "I went to see Professor Warren yesterday." "Professor Warren? Why did you go to see him?" "I had to confront him."

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, having …

Don’t Put it Off

"I passed by your church this morning and heard the congregation singing, Jesus is Coming Again." "Yes. It's one of my favorite hymns." "You really believe He's coming again." "Of course. God is not a Man that He should lie. Jesus promised that He will come again and He will." "If that is true, why …
