6-28-2017 God’s Work Is Unchanged

“Consider the work of God; For who can make straight what He has made crooked?” (Ecclesiastes 7:13 NKJV). In the Creation, God: “divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night” (Genesis 1:4-5); He caused “the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear,” making “Earth” and “Seas” (Genesis 1:9-10); He “let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself” (Genesis 1:11); He made “great sea creatures and every living thing that moves,” “and every winged bird according to its kind” (Genesis 1:20-21). “Evolution” has no explanation for these distinctions, and no “scientist” has discovered any contradictory fact! God’s Creation Work still stands as written! Humans have not, and cannot, change it

9-22-2016 The Work Of Faith

Jesus said “the Scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35 NKJV).  “Broken” means to “nullify, undo, or deprive of authority.”  The Bible does not contradict itself, and one command is not cancelled out by other commands.  “Faith” is commanded when the Bible says, “Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith” (1 Timothy 1:5 NKJV).  But “faith” is a “work.”  “Then they said to Him, ‘What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?’ Jesus answered and said to them, ‘This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent’” (John 6:28-29 NKJV).  No Scripture dealing with “works” would cancel out obeying the command to work at faith!  Jesus said, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16 NKJV).  No contradiction here!
