2.   The truth about the physical suffering of Christ on the cross

The perception of the death of Jesus Christ in the twenty-first century frequently takes place through human eyes that have been tainted with a sanitized, sterilized, and often stylized “art-deco” depiction of Christ on the cross. Today, it is exceedingly uncommon to hear a description of the medical details attending Christ’s crucifixion, yet a complete and thorough investigation into such evidence can lead to a firmer knowledge and a deeper-rooted faith about what actually transpired on that old rugged cross nearly 2,000 years ago.

3.   DNA - What evolutionists cannot explain


As scientists explore a new universe - the universe inside the cell - they are making startling discoveries of information systems more complex than anything ever devised by humanity's best minds. How did they get there, and what does it mean for the theory of evolution?

4.   Apostasy 

A trailer for the show portrays Lucifer as a handsome, British-accented, well-to-do lady killer full of charm and wit. The more subtle side of Satanism in Hollywood entertainment is now a thing of the past.  Prime time television now will air blatant drama featuring Lucifer but portrayed by a character who is just a nice guy.

5.   The Lord your God is One - or Three?

The doctrine of the Trinity is foundational to the Christian faith. It is crucial for properly understanding what God is like, how He relates to us, and how we should relate to Him. But it also raises many difficult questions. How can God be both one and three

6.   End Time prophecy

We have not only seen fulfilment of Bible prophecy unfolding throughout the world, but more specifically we have seen it unfold in Israel, with the Jewish people. Below is a list of end time bible prophecies pertaining specifically to the Jewish people and the ways in which we have seen it play out over the years.

7.   A beautiful story

At the beginning of the 1960s, the Lord sent a spiritual revival among the Evangelical Baptists1 of the Soviet Union. The revival preceded a great assault from the atheistic authorities. Soviet newspapers and magazines spewed an endless flow of articles against believers and the Christian faith, against the Bible and God. Radio, television, and movies were used for anti-religious propaganda. Believers were fired from their jobs, and Christian young people were kept out of educational institutions.

8.   Israel

It’s appalling to see how Israel is treated by a totally different standard than other countries in the international system. Of course, Israel deserves scrutiny, as does every other nation. But it also merits equal treatment  -  nothing more, nothing less.

9.   Iran

Through their nuclear diplomacy, Obama and his comrades started the countdown to war. The world powers assembled at Lausanne, Switzerland, with the representatives of the Islamic Republic may or may not reach a framework deal regarding Iran’s nuclear program. But succeed or fail, the disaster that their negotiations have unleashed is already unfolding. The damage they have caused is irreversible..

10.   Ever wondered why guilt is part of our makeup?

Our culture has declared war on guilt. The very concept is considered medieval, obsolete, unproductive. People who trouble themselves with feelings of personal guilt are usually referred to therapists, whose task it is to boost their self-image. No one, after all, is supposed to feel guilty

11.   What is the truth about hell?

People joke about it. Cartoons depict it inaccurately. We use the word flippantly. When we're angry with someone, we tell them to go there. People say that they are going there, and they will be partying with their friends - sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Many people don't even believe such a place exists

12.   The fruit of Islam

Psychopathic people and behaviour are found within all cultures and religions. But one tops them all - by many lengths. The daily mass killings, terror, persecutions and family executions committed by the followers of Islam are nauseating, and the ingenuity behind the attacks - always looking for new and more effective ways of killing and terrorising people - is astonishing.

13.   Baptism

Christian baptism is one of two ordinances that Jesus instituted for the church. Just before His ascension, Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age”

14.   The testing of our faith

We are watching these prophecies come true today before our very eyes, both here in America and around the world. As our culture has secularized and paganized, Christianity, the Church, and Christians have come under increasing attack as "intolerant bigots." The attacks are going to intensify, and it is going to become increasingly difficult for Christians to stand for righteousness.

15.   Uniting Protestantism with Catholicism 

The pope expressed a desire for Protestants and Catholics to become what Jesus prayed for — that Christians would become family and not be divided.  Pope Francis asked Bishop Palmer whether a meeting could be arranged with Evangelical Protestants seeking Christian unity in the world.

16.   Xenophobia

What is xenophobia, and the forms idoes it take? What are the possible attitudinal drivers of the problem? And finally what is God’s view of xenophobia, and what practical steps can believers take to respond correctly and decisively to the situation in our land.

17.   Salvation

God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life. The question is, how can a person have the Son of God?
