A Heaping Helping of Bible Cuisine

It seems that expository, verse-by-verse teachings of sections of the Word of God are too rare in Christendom today. But clearly, for maximum learning and assimilation of His Truth, they are indispensable. Given the God-breathed content, they are also enlightening, stimulating, and provocative. In one way, the Bible reads somewhat like a grocery list, as it speaks of milk, water, …

What Do You, King David, and Roger Maris Have in Common?

In 1927, Babe Ruth set the Major League Baseball record for most home runs in a season with 60 “dingers.” That mark stood until 1961, when another New York Yankee, Roger Maris, finally bested it with 61 circuit clouts.

The Magnitude of Our Salvation

In 2019, the Christian Church calendar celebrated Pentecost this month.
