A Challenge For The Theologically Minded Christian

Tim Challies challenges us to consider if we can know doctrine, yet fail to love God completely: “Have you ever considered how books of the Bible would be changed if God had left out their final chapter? Matthew without chapter 28 would leave us as Christians without a Great Commission. Ruth without chapter 4 would never […]

Where Are You God?

Every one of us as Christians at times has felt overwhelmed or all alone.  In the midst of trials and tribulations, we cry out to God to protect and rescue us.  And we know He is faithful–but sometimes we wish he acted on our timeline instead of His. King David’s life reflected the best of […]

A “Christian Nation” Turned Pagan?

America was founded upon Judeo-Christian Law, recognizing that all rights come from God alone, and that we were totally dependent on God.  Growing up as a child these beliefs were often reflected in the television and movies we watched, and within society as a whole. These days some of the most popular television shows and […]

Our Greatest Challenge

On Stand Up For the Truth we cover a lot of issues and challenges facing us as Christians.  But perhaps the greatest challenge we face in the world today is sharing the gospel of salvation and hope with those who are on a path to eternal destruction. In Luke 19:10 Jesus states that he came […]

In God We Trust–Or Do We?

It says so on every U.S. paper currency:  “In God We Trust”.  Well, some experts are warning that we might be facing an opportunity to put our money where our mouth is on that statement.  World Stock Markets closed down significantly last week and the early indications this morning is another bad day for the […]

Unraveling the Mystery of Biblical Prophecy

It is believed that up to as much as 30% of the Word of God deals with prophecy.  Some has been fulfilled; some has yet to come to pass.  Some is for Israel; some is for the Church.  And sometimes Biblical prophecy is fulfilled numerous times over numerous generations and situations. God has given us […]

Easy Pickings for Satan?

By every measurable standard it is clear that Biblical Christianity in America is on the decline and in a growing state of crisis.  Youth, being heavily influenced by a public education system increasingly hostile toward God, are leaving the faith in record numbers.  And many professing Christians do not understand, or disagree with, basic tenets […]

Serving as God Desires–Or as We Desire?

When we were young children every boy wanted to be the Quarterback of the football team or the superhero; every young girl wanted to be the Princess or Queen. We all aspired to become someone great that the world would look up to and admire. But as members of the Body of Christ we are […]

Politics and Christianity

Every four years Americans are given a choice between several political candidates to choose from as our next President.  And of course every one of them promises to “make America great again”.  As Christians we are, of course, to follow Jesus Christ.  Unfortunately, He is not on the ballot.  So how do we balance the […]

Applying 2 Timothy to the Church Today

When you think of the prophetic books of the Bible, 2 Timothy does not usually jump out first.  But Paul’s message to Timothy warns and encourages not only Timothy, but is also a great teaching for us who live in a post-modern world where individual “morality” has replaced the concept of absolute truth.  Paul’s words […]

A Move of Jesus in the Muslim World?

The spread of radical Muslim terrorism is a real crisis–one that is starting to hit nearly every nation on earth.  Christians being slaughtered for refusing to renounce Jesus Christ has become an almost daily event. But some are reporting that there is a movement of Jesus Christ–the true Jesus Christ–in the Muslim world.  And many […]

Romans Chapter 1 in Complete Context

One of the challenges we face as Bible-believing Christians is this:  All of us at times hold firmly to the the verses we love, but want to discount the verses that make us uncomfortable.  But when we profess our complete faith in Jesus Christ and His Word, we do not have the option to pick […]

Eating a Slice of Humble Pie

Yesterday I had an opportunity to spend 3 hours with a local pastor and get an insight into some of the difficult work some of our Pastors do that often goes unnoticed. Years earlier this pastor faced a very tough personal economic situation where he and his family weren’t sure how they were going to […]

A cloud of evil and a plea for repentance

Yes, our world has become unhinged. But you should know that we’re not in the hinge-repairing business. Our drumbeat is still the same – share the Gospel, because the hour is late. How late is it, you ask? After doing this program for nearly five years, it is my strong belief that we are in […]

How Should A Christian Live In A Culture Given Over To A Depraved Mind?

Posted by Christine Pack at Sola Sisters and reprinted with permission Before I was born again, I had a number of homosexual friends, and for some reason, I often ended up being a sympathetic ear for them. This was before homosexuality was accepted as normal, as it is today, and many of them expressed to […]

Guiding the Church in Challenging Times

The first century Christian Church faced a variety of threats from outside and within.  Roman and Jewish persecution of believers and an influx of false teachers inside causing people to stray from the true faith were constant challenges the apostles wrote about to the early churches. God’s Word also wrote of the final days when […]

Chipping Away at Church

The Christian Church in America is under increasing pressure to compromise with and conform to the “values” of this fallen, sinful world.  While it is no surprise that the world hates the Christian Church, it is alarming how many who profess to be Christians within the church seem to be active or passive participants in […]

Defending the Biblical Account of Creation

The battle for the hearts and minds of our youth is being waged aggressively within the media and public education.  One of the most sinister lies being told is that God did not create all things–rather that life is just a random act of a universe that magically came into existence on its own. Why […]
