This Man Receives Sinners

Posted by on April 29, 2019 at 10:47 am

This Man Receives SinnersAnd the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them. Luke 15:2Our English word “receives” fails to convey the full meaning of the Greek word in the original text (dechomai), which indicates “a welcoming or an appropriating reception”. It is the same Greek word used to describe the attitude with which […]

WE SING “JOY TO THE WORLD!” Many religious leaders dissuade their followers from singing Isaac Watts’ hymn Joy to the world! We here do not speak of atheists or men of other “world religions” avowedly opposed to the Lord Jesus Christ (e.g., Judaism): Their objection to such a hymn is understandable. Rather, we here speak of men professing to […]

Daniel E. Parks (2010.11.07) The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the very embodiment of the saving works He was sent to perform and of the saving blessings He was sent to bestow. For example, He is: 1. Both Wisdom Giver and Wisdom Given: 1) “The LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and […]

What must I do to be saved? Ask that question to a dozen different people, and you may receive a dozen different answers: keep the Law of Moses; observe sabbaths; decide for Christ; come to the altar; travel the Roman Road; be baptized; get religion; say the sinner’s prayer; join a church; do good works; […]

The Power of Man in Salvation

Posted by on July 25, 2017 at 6:38 am

The Power of Man in Salvation Daniel Parks There is no power in man to save, because salvation comes to those who are “without strength” (Romans 5:6) by virtue of being in their native condition “dead in trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1). Neither is there power in the law to save, because it is “weak […]

God has made this same Jesus

God has made this same Jesus Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. I hear people speak of a Jesus who is trying his best to save everyone, for it is contrary to his will for […]

Only Scriptural preaching is good preaching

Posted by on July 13, 2016 at 7:19 am

Only Scriptural preaching is good preaching I heard of a preacher who very eloquently said that at the conversion of a sinner an angel of God picks up a heavenly quill and flies from God’s throne to that fountain filled with Christ’s blood, dips his quill into the blood of that fountain and then flies […]

The answer of a good conscience toward God

The answer of a good conscience toward God Bill Green was a faithful member of the church I formerly pastored in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. He was retired from secular employment when the church called me to be their pastor. He therefore requested permission to accompany me to conferences and preaching engagements. I gladly consented. He […]

Coming to Christ

Coming to Christ John 6:37, 44, 65 Holy Scriptures contain many exhortations and invitations regarding coming to Christ for salvation. Consider a few. “Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other” (Isaiah 45:22). “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you who […]

Faith The Greek word translated “faith” (pistos) means primarily “firm persuasion.” “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1), being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see. This faith is that conviction of the truths of God’s word and […]
