• Though He Be Dead He Still Speaks

    On this Memorial Day my mind goes back in time to heroes I have known. And as usual, I think of my brother in Christ from years past. I do not wish to forget, for he still inspires me. Some of you will recall my sharing him with you years ago, but most will not.

    Wilfred H. “Chick” Mensching served as a Marine for thirty years and was a veteran of World War II and the Korean War. He survived the Bataan Death March, was a prisoner of war in the Pacific for three and one half brutal years,…


    (By Joe R. Price)

    For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? (1 John 5:4-5, NKJV)

    Faith is the victory that defeats the world of evil. A good brother reminded me that the righteous die victoriously (Sword Tips #2226), as assured in Revelation 2-3. Let us briefly note those assurances to “him who overcomes.”

  • Shrewd Sons
    Jesus once lamented that the sons of this age are shrewder in relation to their own generation than the sons of light (Luke 16:8). In other words, people of the world have more initiative toward worldly things than Christians do toward heavenly things.

    Consider a man who wants to catch fish. He does not expect fish to swim up to his door and invite themselves in. He is realistic. He’ll buy ample equipment: a rod and reel (likely several), hooks, a net, a bait bucket, a stringer, all sorts of tackle and a deluxe box to keep it in,…

  • Possible or Impossible?
    Can an accountable person who so desires become just a Christian? And can a group of such people constitute a congregation (such as those we read about in the New Testament) that is non-denominational and that belongs to Christ? The religious world in general says that it is impossible; we say that it is possible. Christians in the first century were neither Catholics nor Protestants. All of the Lord’s churches were non-denominational and neither Catholic nor Protestant. Our plea is for people to lay aside human names and designations, human creeds and doctrines, human organizations and systems, and become only…
  • Blessings & Reverses

    Every person has many blessings and at least a few misfortunes. The ones he reflects upon will either strengthen or weaken him.

    Our most necessary blessings are apt to be uncounted, because they are the most common: sunshine, rain, oxygen, soil, plants, animals, and a thousand other workings of nature.

    The universality of so many blessings, however, does not lower their value. If this commonness tempts us to be ungrateful, let us ask: Where would we stand if the earth caved in? What would we breathe if the oxygen ran out? What would we do if the water dried up?

  • Preach the Word!

    In 2 Timothy, Paul wrote to encourage the young evangelist, Timothy, in the midst of perilous times. Paul himself was in prison. Many had distanced themselves from Paul because of his imprisonment. Paul warned that “perilous times will come” in which false teachers would arise and lead many astray. In the midst of these warnings, Paul admonished Timothy to “continue in those things you have learned and been assured of,” particularly in the holy scriptures, which are able to “make you wise to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.”

    In chapter 4, Paul charged Timothy: Preach the Word! Be…

    (By Samuel Matthews)

    The King James Version of God's Holy Word, the Bible, says, "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18).

    Loved ones, the answer to our subject question is a resounding NO! The "churches of Christ" that you read about in the New Testament (Romans 16:16) are NOT a denomination. Neither are we inter-denominational. In truth, we…

  • Peace Be Still

    What was your day like today? How has your week been? Did you pass the familiar faces, “Hi, yes I’m fine, thanks.” In some aspect, I think everyone is traveling this life on the open sea. As the storms in my life rise and diminish, I am all too often sharing a façade, that I think others want to see. “I’m fine, you’re fine, we are all fine.” Sometimes I lean into the courteous response, because I myself am just working out my level of “fine-ness.” If you are like me, there are times when it seems like…
