An Omnipresent God

Our God is omnipresent; He is infinite in existence. As a spiritual Being that exists outside of the physical universe (because He preceded it and created it), God is not limited to existing in a single location at any given time. Every physical thing has limits to its presence—including humans. I cannot be in Pittsburg, Kansas and Sydney, Australia at the same time (that…

An Omniscient God

Our God is omniscient; He has all knowledge and wisdom. “Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite,” (Ps. 147:5). The apostle John by inspiration proclaimed that God “knows all things” (1 Jn. 3:20). Unlimited understanding is part of the very nature of our great God. Yet, we sometimes have the tendency to act as if we can hide things from God.…

An Omnipotent God

Our God is omnipotent; He possesses all power—infinite authority. God Himself said to Jeremiah, “Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?” (Jer. 32:27). The implied answer is a resounding, “No!” However, skeptics often attempt to use the omnipotence of God to disprove His existence. They try to paint omnipotence itself as…

The Burden of Proof-Texting

What would happen if you followed the steps from a cake recipe perfectly…but in reverse order? I’m no baker, but I don’t imagine it would work out well. Anybody with cooking experience would never make such a foolish mistake. Yet, many people make a similar mistake when it comes to Bible study. The correct process for studying the Bible is simple: we must go to the Bible,…

Jesus Christ: God in the Flesh

The deity of Jesus Christ is one of the most fundamental doctrines of Christianity. To deny that Jesus is God is to deny an essential truth of the Christian faith. Yet, there are some groups which claim to follow Christ while simultaneously denying His divinity. The most notable of these are the Jehovah’s Witnesses, who have even created their own “translation” of the…

The Importance of Apologetics

We live in a world of skepticism. Research shows that the percentage of Americans who believe in God has been slowly declining over the last several decades. As faith in the existence of God is going down, atheism and agnosticism are on the rise. It is becoming increasingly common for God, religion, and the Bible to be mocked and ridiculed as if they were nothing more…

Do Not Be Deceived

Deception is one of Satan’s greatest tools against mankind. When we are first introduced to the adversary in Scripture, his expertise in deceit is clearly seen. By contradicting God’s clear instructions (Gen. 3:4) and sowing seeds of doubt by impugning God’s character (Gen. 3:5), he was able to deceive Eve (cf. 1 Tim. 2:14). The fact that Eve had been hoodwinked in her…

Don’t Assume!

Assumptions are dangerous. When someone assumes, they rush to a conclusion and ignore evidence in the process, usually because they believe they already know the answer. While this practice can certainly cause problems in one’s personal relationships, occupation, and other areas of life, it becomes especially problematic in Bible study. Far too many people assume they…

Whose Church?

The confusion that pervades the religious world is astonishing. With the existence of thousands upon thousands of denominations of “Christianity,” the Biblical concept of the church is lost upon most—even those who claim to follow Christ. As a result, it is not uncommon to hear such individuals talk about “their church.” Sadly, New Testament Christians sometimes get…
