Why Is it Better to Give Than Receive?

The goal of giving is altogether related to the worship and the kingship of the Lord Jesus Christ in our lives. And that is why giving is better than receiving.

Are Believers Given "7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit?"

Beyond the exposition of passages, scholars identified systematic truths collected from the Bible and placed in a grouping: e.g., “the seven deadly sins,” “the seven virtues.” But perhaps the most famous of these biblical references applied to discipleship resources are the “seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.”

What are those seven gifts, and how do they apply to the believer?


What Are "Sins of the Father"? Understanding Generational Consequences

The phrase, "sins of the fathers" appears in the Ten Commandments in Deuteronomy and Exodus. The phrase also appears in the book of Numbers and in Jeremiah. So, the phrase is linked to the keeping of the commandments and the consequences of sin passing through the generations. But the phrase is also a concept that is observed; sin does have consequences. The children of those who sin do in fact inherit the seed of sin and the sin nature. Moreover, certain sins carry intergenerational consequences.


The Thanatos Syndrome: What the Bible Says about Euthanasia

God hates the murderous taking of human life. Therefore, God abhors that wicked and deceitful deed that men call "The Good Death.” Our unequivocal statement is derived from many places in God’s Word.
