The Way It Was Meant To Be

Published: January 31, 2016

Commentary by Jack Kelley

The Prosperity Gospel teachers are right when they say the Lord intended for us to live abundant lives.  The problem is, they have misrepresented the Lord’s  promise of abundance, turning it into a false teaching where the motive is greed and not gratitude.  Because of this only the teachers themselves are awash in material wealth,

The Great Pyramid of Giza

Why Did God Do That?

Published: November 15, 2015

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

I get a lot of questions about the relationship between God and Satan. Most of them are from people who want to know how God can tolerate Satan in His presence, and as far as I can tell the Bible offers no explanation for this.


As It Was In The Days Of Noah

Published: November 10, 2015

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man (Matt 24:37). The time leading up to the Great Flood was a lot like our time today in that it was characterized by a deliberate and escalating disregard for the ways of God.

Published: November 8, 2015

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

For believers, the resurrection from the dead is perhaps the greatest promise the Bible offers. The idea of eternal life in a state of perpetual bliss goes well beyond amazing for those who read the Scriptures literally.

Rapture Mania

Published: October 28, 2015

Everything Is Permissible

Published: October 6, 2015
I get a fair amount of email from people who are seriously troubled by "low level bondage". What I mean by that term is that they've taken something that most would consider a fairly minor thing and either by them selves or with some "help" from friends have become totally obsessed over it.

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

As I’ve said earlier in this series, I am not part of the “word of faith” movement and I am not a charismatic faith healer. I am an evangelical Christian who takes the Bible very seriously, believing it means just what it says.
