Why God Cannot “Exist”
The Grand Design, the newly published book by famed English Cambridge University scientist Stephen Hawking, is stirring debate about the existence of God. On Friday evening, Hawking appeared on Larry King Live, along with other panelists such as Deepak Chopra. Hawking states in his new book that God is unnecessary for the universe to have come into existence. So, what about the question of whether God exists? A kindergarten teacher would occasionally walk around to see each child’s artwork while they drew. When she came to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was.Choose To Be Saved
The New Testament reveals early Christians struggled with how it is that one is “saved”. Some contended salvation is through works; others asserted that salvation is through grace, a gift. The disparity in these views does not demand an “either or” – both are possibilities. Different paths to salvation by way of works or grace are possible, are necessary, are real.At The Well

Thirty-six years have passed since I wrote this wonderful play, based loosely on the Dickens classic. I say “wonderful” because the message is eternal and still touches me deeply when I read it. Use it freely in your church drama group. Just a note to let me know would be nice.Social Covenanting, the Solemn League, and the Future Reformation of the Church and the Nations
Social covenanting is a forgotten and neglected ordinance of God. God’s people in times of repentance and thanksgiving, trial and blessing, have been a covenanting people. In the most pure times of ecclesiastical and civil reformation throughout history, both church and state under the mediatorial rule of Christ have by the grace of God bound themselves together by covenant to promote and defend the true Christian religion.Divine Paradoxes

Many people who call themselves Christians today have a big problem with the Calvinistic teaching that Jesus Christ’s death on the cross was not for every single individual, but rather for a particular people called “the elect.” This doctrine is known as “Limited Atonement” and is one of the major doctrines of Calvinism or Reformed Theology. People deny the idea of limited atonement because they hold to the idea that Christ died for every single person and the salvation of a particular individual is left up to the choices and abilities of that person, rather than the sovereign will of God Himself. We will take a look at 1 Timothy 2:4, which is one of the main scriptures used to argue against the doctrine of limited atonement.Television and the Christian: The Ultimate American Idol
This one’s been debated a lot. There are still Christians out there who refuse to own a TV. Descendants of believers who in Spurgeon’s day would not read a novel or play cards. There’s others who dabble in TV. And still others who are bound by the air-waves.The Friendly Television
For over thirty years now I’ve been warning myself and others about the dangers inherent in excessive TV watching. It’s still a current subject.The Parable of The Vine and Branches Made Simple (John 15:1-17)
Jesus teaches what it is to abide in Him and the benefits of having the right relationship with Him. This parable has a lot of depth to it. Not all can be shared here.The Parable of The Unjust Judge Made Simple (Luke 18:1-8)
We read this parable of the unjust judge in Luke 18:1-8: 1. Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart, Okay so, this is about praying and not losing heart. I’ll give you an example of this. For years and years, my mother knew that I had an addiction to prostitutes.
