Easter time is upon us. The big day is less than two weeks away. Each year, as Easter approaches, I wonder about Christians and their attitude toward Christianity. I have these thoughts because Easter makes Christianity an all-or-nothing proposition, and many claiming Christianity try to walk in the middle of the road. Allow me to … Continue reading Is Easter Important Or Meaningless?
Poor In Spirit
"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 5:3. Look at the promise given to the poor in spirit! The kingdom of heaven, which is salvation, eternal life. You may be thinking, "I thought salvation was through faith." It is. There are hundreds of verses that announce that … Continue reading Poor In Spirit
The End Never Comes
Last week Preacher's Point ended with the battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ. Most people believe Armageddon is the end of the world, but that is not the case. This universe we now live in will melt with fervent heat a little more than a thousand years after Armageddon (2 Peter 3:10-13). … Continue reading The End Never Comes
What Is Armageddon?
A word used too loosely nowadays is Armageddon. It seems like anything big or significant and unpleasant is some sort of "mageddon" event, such as snowmageddon and retail-mageddon. The recent threat of nuclear war has brought the idea of Armageddon happening to mainstream thinking. A global nuclear war would be the worst event thus far … Continue reading What Is Armageddon?
God Is Not In The Repair Business
As a child, once a year, we would visit my aunt. In a prominent place in her living room was a vase. The vase had roses painted on it. It also had two cracks running up the side.

Why Satan Wants To Rip You To Pieces.
All around us, there is a spiritual battle raging. Demons and angels are seen occasionally, but they are present, almost constantly. Before we go further with this thought, let me clarify something. When we do something bad, it is not Satan's fault. He or a demon may nudge us in the wrong direction, but we … Continue reading Why Satan Wants To Rip You To Pieces.
What Manner Of Person?
2 Peter 3:10-12 speaks of the end of the world. The phrase, "The elements shall melt with fervent heat," is mentioned twice within the three verses.

Why The What
Have you ever wondered, "Why Christmas?" The answer seems simple enough, "We have Christmas to celebrate Jesus' birthday." Jesus' birthday is the what, not the why. Jesus' birthday is what we celebrate on Christmas. But why do we celebrate His birth? Going a bit deeper, maybe we should ask why Jesus was born in the … Continue reading Why The What
A Person Of Faith
Everyone is a person of faith. Feathers will ruffle from that statement, and for different reasons. Some will say, "Not everyone is a believer in God!" Others, "I am not religious" or, "I don't believe in God, I am an athiest." Everyone believes or places their trust in something. This fact makes everyone a person … Continue reading A Person Of Faith
The Spirit Of Antichrist
The Bible talks of a day yet to come commonly called "The Tribulation Period." The Bible has several names for this seven-year period that plays havoc with the earth, including, "The time of Jacob's trouble," "the Day of the Lord," among others. It is also known as Daniel's seventieth week. The main character on earth … Continue reading The Spirit Of Antichrist
