Everything Is Permissible

Published: October 6, 2015 (Originally published: October 7, 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.

Lord, Teach Us To Pray

Published: August 18, 2016 (Originally published: September 1, 2007)

A Bible Study by Jack Kelley

A guest speaker came to our church with an interesting insight on the Lord’s Prayer. Taking line by line, he showed us how to turn it from something we know by heart and can recite without thinking into an impassioned personal discussion with the Lord that can last as long as we want.

The Epistle To The Hebrews, Part 2

Published: September 4, 2013 (Originally published: November 10, 2007)
In our last study we saw the author give proof that Jesus is as superior to the angels as His name is to theirs. The Son of God is the exact representation of His being, His prophet for the Last Days, the sole provider of our purification. Now we'll see that in the process He descended lower than the angels for a little while to become a man in order to save mankind.

Published: September 4, 2013 (Originally published: December 1, 2007)
Having made reference to Jesus as a priest in the order of Melchizedek, (Hebr. 5:10 & 6:26) the author now explains how this connection came to be and why His priesthood is superior to the Levitical priesthood of the Old Covenant. Think of chapter 7 as a commentary on Genesis 14.

The Epistle To The Hebrews Part 6

Published: September 4, 2013 (Originally published: December 8, 2007)
Levitical priests were sinners themselves and had to keep offering sacrifices day after day and year after year, and then they died and another one took their place to do the same thing all over again. We need a high priest who isn't a sinner, who only needs to offer one sacrifice, who lives forever and can save us forever.
