The inauguration of the new covenant did more than take away sin. It revealed twofold meanings that differentiated between the temporal and eternal. The temporal being of an earthly inheritance and the eternal being of a heavenly inheritance. There is no competition for the blessings of God between the two since the eternal is established upon the better promises of the everlasting new covenant.
"But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how…

facing my sadness about what I consider to be non-Christian aspects of the "tea party" republicans, I was trying to find a positive side to the stranglehold that has come about in the two main parties based on the issue of abortion (mainly).
what I came up with was that the present situation of the republicans considering themselves the sole party of true fundamentalists Christians while concurrently abusing the monopoly that arises from that status ( the sole 'true' party of…Continue

I took some time to gather respected theological works in my new bookstore. I also gathered together theological, daily living, and ministry magazines. I hope you find something that will help you walk close to the Lord daily.

Hindsight is always 20/20. In so many areas of life, when we look back on things that have happened we ask, “Why didn’t I see the signs? I should have seen this coming.”
In a society that increasingly encourages hands-off parenting, it is difficult to know if the reactions of teenagers are a burst of independence or a cover-up for…Continue

It has been customary in theological circles to fashion a proof for God’s existence and to “put it out there” with the expectation it proves something, or at least ought to prove something. Those cleverer than myself have devised this technique, and I do not intend to challenge its soundness. My focus, at least initially, is not to produce a proof, but to begin by considering the various sorts of things that constitute proofs and why proofs are or are not accepted. To that…Continue

Hello, my name is Todd. My main point in this note is that the word of God was exalted even in the most exciting circumstances. The sensationalism of today downplays or quenches the word of God. I guess you could say that this note is an encouragement for believers to worship God with all their heart, soul, MIND, and strength through His word. Sola Scriptura : )
The God given human intellect that can understand scripture through the Holy Spirit is the proper way…Continue

Her 13-year-old daughter came home announcing that her school would be providing all the students with iPads. Mom was skeptical, to say the least. The school would not be providing a way to lock down or filter the iPad. How would she protect her daughter from pornographic…Continue

I recently read from A.W. Tozer's Attributes of God Vol. 1. There Tozer proposed a questions:"do we have an identity of not being as bad as we once were? I might add... I am totally depraved, or in the process of sanctification? How does God see me? How do I see my self? How do I see myself in comparison to other believers? Is their a clear present identity for me although I am still "in the flesh" and in Christ?
Here is my issue... As I get older, 68…Continue
