JULY 2024, Is Mars for Man?Man visited the moon last century and came back home. Well now, in this 21st century, greater plans are afoot. Some people of earth wish to migrate to Mars to build a city there. The project has already begun. But does God approve?

JUNE 2024, Are There Aliens on Earth?Popular science often asks the question, Are we alone? Many believe that extraterrestrial beings leave another world, visit Earth, and even live among us. Is this true according to the Bible? If so, do these aliens give us assurance of our salvation from Earth's destruction?

MAY 2024, Bible Firsts Genesis 1 to 4 A List of Bible firsts in Genesis chapters 1 to 4. We cite the verses for each first. Just a neat simple list for reference.

MAY 2024, No Other GospelA curse is a bad thing. Nobody wants one. Well then, we had all better test the gospel we preach with the gospel Paul preached. Do we match, or do we differ? (Galatians 1:8-9).

APRIL 2024, The Hearing of FaithFaith is essential to salvation. But hearing God’s word is essential to faith. You cannot just make up your own personal faith and truth from the thoughts you collect and the opinions you form. God’s word must be conveyed to you from the inspired writings of the apostles of Christ who preached that word. (Romans 10:16-18).

MARCH 2024, Preaching, Preparation, Patience (2Timothy 4:2)Some preach only love, grace, hope, comfort, peace, and suchlike. They preach only what is positive to make people feel good. But we must also reprove and rebuke. We must do so in patience and truth, yet we must do so nevertheless (2Timothy 4:2).

MARCH 2024, James Rebukes ArroganceJames's message is not against doing business, but against the arrogance of thinking you are in control of your life. God is in control, not you. He can allow your business to fail, and even your life to disappear, when you least expect it (James 4:13-17).

MARCH 2024, Sons of God Clothed with ChristMany will agree with Paul that faith precedes coming into Christ and into sonship with God. It is hard, however, to find anyone who will agree with Paul that baptism precedes being clothed with Christ (Galatians 3:26-29). That is something that people find hard to hear.

MARCH 2024, Pillar and Ground (1Timothy 3:15)In the Bible, the church is not a place to be entertained. The church is "the pillar and ground of the truth." We should look to God’s church to hear and receive God’s truth, not psychological hype or human idealism.

FEBRUARY 2024, Jesus is Lord (Acts 2:36)Jesus is not just one of many good teachers, or just one of many great Lights. He is the one Lord and the only sacrifice that can take away sins. No one else will do.

FEBRUARY 2024, One Truth, One Mediator, One RansomPeople will say that there are many great lights in the world. They are the teachers who have given the world great insights. That may be so, but when people count Jesus as one among the many, that is not true. He is the "only Mediator between God and man" (1Timothy 2:4-6).

FEBRUARY 2024, Christ's Retribution When Jesus returns it will be a marvellous day for his saints. All who believed will enter the glory of God’s eternal kingdom. But God’s righteous judgment does not end there. Those who did not obey the gospel and those who afflicted his saints, will be repaid with affliction (2Thessalonians 1:5-10).
