God's Promise To You

Did you know that God made a promise to you many years ago? His promise was made to everyone. So if you live on this earth, then it applies to you. Long ago, in the days of Noah, God made a covenant with the whole earth and everyone living on it. He bound Himself by an oath not to allow the earth to be destroyed...

God's Purpose in Your Life

Did you know that God created you with a purpose in mind? God has a plan for your life. Many have asked themselves, Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going? The answer is not hard to find. It is in the Bible...

Who is God?

Who is God? What is He like? How can I know Him? The Bible tells us in 1 John 4:8, “The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love.” All that God does is based on His nature, because God will always be true to Himself. Everything God does is based upon love, and love is the most powerful force in the universe...

God's Rights as the Creator

In Romans 11:36 the Apostle Paul wrote:
“For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.”

When Paul speaks of “all things,” he refers to creation itself. Paul says that creation came “from Him,” or out of Him. In other words, everything was created out of God particles. It was not created out of nothing, as some have mistakenly taught in the past...

The Merciful Judgments of God

If you know any Christians, the chances are good that they have told you that you will “spend eternity in hell” if you do not accept Jesus or perhaps if you do not join their church or organization.

The Bible does not actually teach this. The Bible teaches that hell is the grave and that it is temporary because it ends at the resurrection of the dead. Neither is it a place of conscious torture in a superheated fire...

The Rich Man and Lazarus

The Rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31) is one of the main texts used to teach the doctrine of eternal torment. In the parable, Jesus speaks of a rich man who dies and goes to hades (“hell”). This rich man is contrasted with a poor man named Lazarus, who dies and goes to Abraham’s bosom, commonly interpreted as “heaven.”

Redemption and Jubilee

Many people say that God must judge sinners because He is holy and will not allow any sinner to come into His presence. God is indeed holy, but we read in Job 1:6 says,

“Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them.”

Instead of casting Satan out of His presence, God carried on a conversation with him. Apparently, God’s holiness did not mean that Satan was forbidden to approach God...
