The Waste of a College Education

The Waste of a College Education

Our culture idolizes education. Having a degree from a university makes you somebody in most people’s mind. I know it doesn’t matter to the Lord, that is for sure since the “the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19). “A recent article in The New York Times about the mountain of education debt owed by college graduates — an average of $27,600 — reports that “fewer students than ever say taking out loans to attend college…

Sin Hardens Hearts

Sin Hardens Hearts

“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end; While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation” (Hebrews 3:12-15).

The Perfect Recipe for a Great Marriage

The Perfect Recipe for a Great Marriage

God has a perfect recipe for a great marriage and it’s in Colossians 3. “Seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created Him” (Colossians 3:9, 10). The moment we believe, we have put off the old man and put on the new man. We are a brand new creature in Christ. Therefore, since we are a new…

Should Young Women Teach Titus 2:4, 5?

Should Young Women Teach Titus 2:4, 5?

As many of you have noticed, there are a lot of younger women teaching other women the precepts of Titus 2:4, 5. It is most likely due to the void left by older women who are not obeying the Lord in this area. But are they the ones that should be teaching these things according to the Word? We know that younger women should love and obey their husbands, love their children by raising them up in the nurture and…

Avoid Foolish Questions

Avoid Foolish Questions

Written By Charles Spurgeon Our days are few, and are far better spent in doing good, than in disputing over matters which are, at best, of minor importance. The old schoolmen did a world of mischief by their incessant discussion of subjects of no practical importance; and our Churches suffer much from petty wars over abstruse points and unimportant questions. After everything has been said that can be said, neither party is any the wiser, and therefore the discussion no…
