The devil is a liar. When he speaks, he speaks lies. His words are not without reason for each is tailor-made to destroy the soul of a man or woman. One of his favored deceptions is to take God’s Word and twist it to his own benefit. One way the devil does this is making […]

What happened to Elijah?

Question: What happened to Elijah when the fiery chariot took him away?   Answer: I believe the Bible always provides its own answers. What it says is always right; and what it says is always enough. Alexander Campbell made famous this nineteenth-century expression: “Where the Scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent.” This hermeneutic […]

Isn’t that correct?” The statement in question is only partially correct. […]

Where the Apostles Baptized in Jesus’ Name?

Alexander Campbell made famous this nineteenth-century expression: “Where the Scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are silent, we are silent.” Basically he was saying that a teaching cannot be said to be “biblical” if is has no Bible verses for its evidence. With this in mind, there are three scriptural evidences that prove the Apostles of Jesus’ […]
