Not too long ago (well OK, I guess it was a long time ago — like five years ago), a reader asked Tim a question about a certain article he had found on a messianic Jewish website. The author’s main idea was that Jesus was a created being, a son of God, and not God Himself. Here’s the article.
Tim wrote a detailed response — a pleasure to read! Check it out.
Is Jesus the True God? An Overview of the Trinity
We’ve heard this question (or variants of it) a lot. Folks think they’ve committed the unpardonable sin and they’re afraid that God will never forgive them. Or they’ve committed deliberate sins and feel that they are beyond God’s mercy. We have one thing to say–stop believing Satan’s lies and trust in the promises explicitly stated in God’s Word.
I Think I’ve Committed Blasphemy – Can I Be Forgiven?
I haven’t posted here for a long time. To say that I miss Tim would be an understatement. My life has changed significantly since he’s been gone. I find it difficult to stay motivated. Tonight I felt strongly that I needed to get to work on the site again. So here goes. Here’s an article that Tim wrote a little over a year ago. I have many more.
Folks are also submitting poems and testimonies weekly. I’m so back-logged at this point that I really have no idea how I’ll ever catch up. I really don’t think I will. But anyway, here you go. Another article from Tim.
What Do the Jews Believe About Jesus?
A reader wanted to know what we think of Joyce Meyer and her teachings. We do not want to bad-mouth Joyce Meyer, as we agree with her statement of faith and are appreciative of the fact that she’s open about her ministry’s finances. However, we do have a few problems with some of her basic tenets.
Joyce Meyer and the Prosperity Gospel Teachings
Recently we received an email from a reader who stated that he was “living in fear every day.” We say that this is no way to live. And we also say that the Bible teaches us that we do not need to be afraid. We should not live under condemnation but in the freedom of Jesus Christ. He has broken our chains of bondage. He has released us from the weight of past sin. Trust His promises.
I Am Living in Fear Every Day
Are religious rituals really that important? Are they good? Bad? Outdated?
The Proper Role of Religious Rituals
To many prayer is telling God about one’s requests. But I want to give it a different type of definition, not one based on what we do, but based on what we believe. Prayer is believing God. Those who do not pray, do not believe God. Those who believe God will pray. Prayer is an expression of faith.
Prayer, As an Expression of Faith in God
When I read this question, I thought, what a good question! When I read the answer, I thought, oh, I should have known that!
Where and Who Did Gentiles Come From?
What if a Christian sins and then dies before they confess their sin and ask God for forgiveness? Will they still make it to heaven?
We are convinced that a Christian will still go to heaven, even if they sin and then suddenly die (say in a car wreck). Our salvation is based on faith in the Jesus of the Bible, not on a set of prescribed regulations.
Can a Christian Die in Sin and Still Go to Heaven?
How many times have we heard this question, just worded in different ways? Have I committed the unpardonable sin? What is the unpardonable sin? I’m afraid I may have committed the unforgivable sin! Can I be forgiven for what I’ve done? The answer is yes! You can be. It is never too late. In fact, we like to say that if you think you’ve committed the unpardonable sin, then it’s highly likely that you haven’t.
