  • Be an Onesiphorus

    Ten days after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, residents of North Platte, Nebraska heard a rumor that soldiers from their town, part of the Nebraska National Guard Company D, would be coming through on a troop train on their way to the West Coast. About five hundred people showed up at the train depot with food, gifts, letters, and love to give the boys. When the train showed up, it was not the Nebraska National Guard Company D boys on board; it was the soldiers from the Kansas National Guard Company D. The North Platte residents decided to…

  • Obey The Gospel NOW!

    Obey The Gospel Now!
    (Allen Ashlock)
    1. Before you die! You could die at any time. Be prepared. Be a faithful and dedicated child of God. The Bible declares, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" (Hebrews 9:27). There is a horrible price to pay for the person who dies outside of Christ.
    2. Before you can't! A person can live in sin and then suffer in a terrible accident or suffer from a stroke or other disease and be rendered unable to…

  • Should Christians Observe Easter?
    Easter is a widely-observed annual celebration com-memorating the resurrection of Christ. You probably have noticed that Easter comes at a different time each year. “Easter is the first Sunday after the first full moon that falls on or next after the vernal equinox (March 21 in the Gregorian calendar); if the full moon happens on Sunday, Easter is celebrated one week later. Easter Sunday cannot be earlier than March 22 or later than April 25; dates of all other movable church feasts depend on that of Easter” (Webster).

    The Origin of Easter

    Some church historians assert that Easter…

  • A Pioneer Preacher Proves a Point About Infant Baptism
    Many stories are told about pioneer preacher "Raccoon" John Smith. He was a man of strong conviction and clever wit. One of the better known incidents in his preaching work is related in this excerpt from a biographical sketch …

    Noticing, one day, that a young Methodist preacher had sprinkled a howling infant, he afterward seized him by the arm, in full view of the Methodist gathering that was meeting on the banks of Slate Creek, and powerfully pulled him toward the water. When the man questioned John of his intentions, Smith informed him that he was going to…

  • Egypt and Life

                Egypt is a part of the Bible world from Genesis to Revelation.  More than 500 times one will read references to this religion and nation.  The first occurrence is in Gen. 10:6 when the generations of the sons of Noah are listed and Mizraiam (some translations read Egypt) is there among the sons of Ham.  Psalm 105:23 refers to Egypt as the land of Ham.  Egypt is a transliteration of the Hebrew word Algypton.  And we still call it Egypt today.

                Although Egypt…

  • 23 Things That Save Us From Sin

        Brethren often talk about “the five steps of salvation,” in reference to man’s part in his response to the gospel. Although there is value to this concise list, the Bible never speaks of “The Five Steps Of Salvation” as it is typically used today. Don’t misunderstand me, I believe in what is typically referred to as “the five steps” because you can put clear Bible verses after each of the “steps!” My concern is that constant reference to “man’s part,” may make man’s response more important in some people’s minds than “God’s part.” The formula, though useful , can…

  • Rationalization

    My wife sent me a text the other day that said: “Just because you did it does not mean you’re guilty.”

    There was no context to this statement, so I proceeded to do what any good husband would do in this situation: I panicked and racked my brain trying to figure out what I had done wrong.

    For once, I came up empty.

    So, in response, I played dumb. Well, I guess it wasn’t actually playing, as I really was clueless. Not the best strategy, as any good husband will tell you, but unfortunately, it was the only thing I could…
