Why you can’t understand the Bible without understanding the covenants

If we don’t understand the covenants, we will not and cannot understand the Bible because we won’t understand how the story fits together.

Considering covenants

Faith that moves mountains: What Jesus didn’t mean

Jesus teaches us that if we have the smallest amount of faith, God works on our behalf.

Here We Go Again!

The Lord wants us to see how great our sin is, so we understand how great our salvation is.

Do Old Testament commands apply today?

When we read the whole Bible, we see that the Old Covenant has passed away.

Did Paul really write all his letters?

We have good reasons for confidence in Paul’s letters. Praise the Lord!

Do I have to call myself a Calvinist?

We aren’t as concerned with the word “Calvinism” as we are with being faithful to Scripture.

Is tithing required today?

God calls upon each one of us to be generous, sacrificial givers. He tells us that will increase your joy.

What is the unforgivable sin?

Anyone who wants to turn to Christ in repentance and faith, anyone who comes to him and says, “I’m sorry for my sins,” is forgiven.

Do James and Paul disagree on grace and works?

In the beauty and completeness of God’s Word, Paul and James teach complementary, not contradictory, truths.

What happens to babies when they die?

Can you lose your salvation?

Is suicide unforgivable?

Can I have 100% assurance of salvation?

When is it OK to leave a church?

Christ in the Old Testament

The whole Old Testament is realized in Christ. He is the second Adam, the true Israel, the prophet of the Lord, the Messiah, the Son of God and the Son of Man, and the Servant of the Lord.

A Word-Centered Culture Instead of a Man-Centered Culture

The danger is that we will become man-centered instead of Word-centered, so that we prize the preacher more than what is preached.
