Was Paul really an apostle? If so, does he possess the same authority as the other apostles? Many of Paul’s writings are controversial today even among religious people. They were in the first century too! So, are we to heed his instructions in the church today? We examine those questions in part 2 of our […]

In part two of ‘God’s Ancient Landmarks’, we continue surveying the boundaries God has set including those that delineate between false and acceptable worship. We also look at the landmarks He has set regarding fellowship and the Christian’s spiritual separation from the world.
In the days of national Israel, after they moved into the land of promise, property lines were drawn and marked by stones called ‘landmarks’. Those boundary markers were considered sacred and were not to be moved. The Old Testament sternly warned the Israelites to “Remove not the ancient landmarks which your fathers have set”, thus […]

Samson was the strongest man on earth who slew the fiercest warriors that could be sent up against him. But this mighty man was slain by his own fatal flaw. Samson’s compromise with the flesh and the devil led to his undoing. When sin had had its way, the record sadly says “..And he […]
A viewer asks: “When one dies, at what point do they go to heaven? Is it immediately or at the resurrection?” This is a question, among many other related subjects, that has piqued the interest of believers throughout time. The scriptures are very clear that heaven is the ultimate destination of those who are “in […]

Th church of Christ was established by Christ to bring glory to God. Two millennia later, it remains on earth. Why?

The mission of the church is distinct and powerful but it has often misunderstood and the […]
The Golden Rule is one of the most well-known maxims in all of religion or even world philosophies. Most religions claim some form of this rule but Jesus is the only person who ever stated it exactly as He did. Some attempt to reduce Christianity to only keeping The Golden Rule.

The New Covenant that was established through Jesus Christ is not only better in its very nature but in what it provides. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we continue our study of the New and Better Covenant and why it is folly to attempt to live under the Old Agreement.
