Jesus and the serpent

Did you know that Jesus once compared His crucifixion to a brass statue of a serpent attached to a metal pole in the middle of the desert? Stick around and we’ll talk about it…here on 5 minutes of truth. One of the most interesting elements of the four Gospels is how each Gospel is unique in its own way.

Promise Not Made

There are a myriad of amazing promises that God makes throughout the 66 books that make up the Bible. Putting aside the fact that the God Who spoke the universe into existence would make any promises at all to us, it is estimated (by some) that there are over 3,000 specific promises God makes throughout the Bible. Yet despite all of that, in fact maybe because of all of that, God continues to get blamed a lot concerning promises. He is blamed for promises He makes and keeps. He is blamed for...


Promise Not Made

God makes many promises in His Word. It would take a lot longer than 5 minutes to go through them all. But did you know that He often gets blamed for not keeping a promise He never made? Stick around and we’ll talk about it. Here on 5 minutes of truth. There are a myriad of amazing promises that God makes throughout the 66 books that make up the Bible.

Ephesians Chapter 1 Whats an Apostle and does God choose certain people for salvation? This week’s lesson is a biblical view of Paul’s letter to Ephesus.

Inevitably, problems always followed once he moved on to the next place. The book of Ephesians is a short letter (6 Chapter) which begins with an important introduction. He wants the...

Bonus Episode: Suicide to Salvation | Interview with James Watkins

Pastor James Watkins shares how an attempted suicide lead him to the Gospel. Do “Christians” consider suicide? If I commit suicide, will Igo to Heaven or Hell, or maybe somewhere “in between”? If we are “truly” “Christians”, would we even contemplate this deed at all!?? You might find yourself wondering about these and other questions regarding that hopeless feeling so deep. You feel unloved, unnecessary, everyone will be better off without you? How do your core beliefs help u navigate the...


Isaac and Rebekah a God given love

Did you know that the Bible gives us an example of dedicated love between a man and a woman who didn’t even know each other? Stick around and we’ll talk about it. Here on five minutes of truth. One of the key characteristics of the so-called Patriarchs of the Old Testament was that, for the most part, they all had more than one wife?

Growing through our failures

One of the most common misconceptions most people have about God is that He relishes dishing out punishment.In fact, in the movie Bruce Almighty, the main protagonist in the story, Bruce, espouses this belief when he cries out to God saying: “Smite me, oh mighty Smiter”! The unfortunate truth is…this seems to be a common view of God. That not only does He relish the idea of punishment, but that He actually enjoys dispensing it. But to be honest, I just don’t see that in the Bible. Oh, I do...
