Should Christians Judge? — Paradigm Shift

Christians sometimes get confused with the concept of judging. Biblically we are commanded to judge (John 7:24 says, “Stop judging by mere appearances, and make it right judgement”). Then at the same time we are biblically told that we are not to …

As In The Days Of Noah


FOR THE LOVE OF GOD

inspiration_churchMatthew 24:37-39, “But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” (NKJV)

Not All Harps and Halos: Learn What the Bible Really Says about Angels — Logos Bible Software Blog


Whatever you think about angels, there’s a good chance it’s wrong. That may sound harsh, but most of us get our perspective of angels from movies, myths, and Valentine’s Day cards—not as much from the Bible. In his new book, Angels, Dr. Michael Heiser carefully reviews what the Bible says—and what it doesn’t say—about the…
