Christian Article Series’

Here are article series in which I discuss some Christian topics that were important to me during my walk in the faith. Some are in progress. Some have what I call prologue or home articles. You will find those linked within the description.

1. Why Jesus is the Only Way?
2. Building Upon The Living Rock: This is an attempt at taking a comprehensive look at fundamental Christian truths. This isn’t organized as well as I’d like. Once the entire “first draft” is complete I plan to revisit this series to hopefully purge misconceptions. This is a learning process. Once revised, if I’m ever satisfied with it I plan to publish this series in downloadable format.

Part 1: The Sacrifice of Jesus and the Restoration of Mankind

Part 2: Jesus Promises Perfection

Part 3: God’s Predetermined Will for the Election of His Children in Christ

Part 4: The Nature of Hell (Complete Series)

Part 5: The Nature of the Kingdom of God

  • The Nature of Heaven (Part 1) — The Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven
  • The Nature of Heaven (Part 2) — Do We Go to Heaven When we Die?
  • The Nature of Heaven (Part 3) — The Kingdom of God to Come
  • The Nature of Heaven (Part 4) — Parables of the Kingdom of God

Part 6: The First and Second Resurrection

Part 7: The Nature of the Holy Spirit

  • Who is the Holy Spirit?
  • Receiving the Holy Spirit
  • Walking with the Holy Spirit
3. Faith vs Fear and the Duality of God: What does it mean, “fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom?”

Part 1: Fear Leads to Much Sin. Jesus Frees the Fearful.

Part 2: More on Fear of the Lord

Part 3: How Fear is Used to Control and Destroy

4. The Severity of Sin and the Mercy of Jesus: We know that Jesus came as the solution to sin. Do we understand what this really means for our lives?

Part 1: The Wages of Sin is Still Death

Part 2: “They Which do Such Things…” Do Sinners Enter the Kingdom?

Part 3: “No Sacrifice Remaining!?” A Look at “Willful” Sin.

Part 4: Can We Lose Our Salvation?

Can We Lose Our Salvation? (Section 1)

Can We Lose Our Salvation? (Section 2)

Can We Lose Our Salvation (Section 3)

5. Minuscule Faith Moves Mountains: Our salvation hinges on faith, and yet, I wonder how much we truly understand what a “faith-based” life really means. What change might we experience if we really took hold of our faith? I want to spend some time considering faith:

Additional works on grace:

6. Acceptable Worship: When we worship Jesus, whether through singing, ministry, or doing good deeds, are we really doing what pleases God, or are we pleasing ourselves?
7. Preparing for “End-Times”: What do we really need to know about preparing for the last days or general times of trouble throughout our lives?
8. For Christians Abused by Christians: There’s an epidemic of hate within the Christian community that has led many into the captivity of sin. The focus of these articles/lessons is to reach out to believers and unbelievers who have been abused by people of faith and/or the church in general.
9. Answering The Accuser: Satan goes by many names, one of which is The Accuser of the Brethren. What does this mean? In what ways does he accuse us? How do we answer to his accusations as Christians? How do we avoid being used by him as one who brings false accusations?
10. Letters to Christians, Pastors, Ministers, Prophets, etc pertaining to unacceptable practices and behaviors.
11. Considering the Resurrection : This article series explores the resurrection and how this fundamental Christian teaching affects other doctrines including the rapture, soul sleep, and the gospel itself.

Bible Studies

These are articles in which I share my thoughts on chapters within the Bible. Some of the articles within other series look at whole chapters as well, but those are mostly topical. These articles are not topical, just me sharing my thoughts as I read the Bible.

Audio Discussions

These are recordings of me talking without script about various Christian topics. I’m not a talented speaker, so I hope the Lord will help me improve over time. In any case, doing this helps me grow in the faith and in my ability to discuss important Christian issues effectively.

These are the things that ye shall do: Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates: And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things I hate, saith the Lord.  — Zechariah 8:16-17
