End Times and the Meantim...

More than 30 years ago, when I was a student at Baylor University, there was a religious sect settled in that part of the country. They announced that on a given day the world would come to an end and Jesus would return. So they sold their possessions, their land, their houses, and they moved up on a high hill waiting for Jesus to come. As a young college student, I c...

1 And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!  2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings?

If the Dead Could Speak

Is there any hope for America? Yes! It is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only one who can stem our moral decline. He is the only one who can revive dead churches. He is the only one who can save a soul.

On Faith and Works

One of the common denominators of all world religions except Christianity is that they do not correlate faith and works. In Christianity there is the closest correlation between them. In fact the Bible says, “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also” (James 2:26).

The Bible is clear: a workless faith is worthless faith. 

Faith and works must be balanced in true religion. Faith in God and commitment to Jesus Christ are foundational. No man becomes a Christian merely by being good. Faith is the soil from which good works must grow. Real Christian faith always brings forth the fruit of good works. The true follower of Christ first believes, then he serves. As Dr. Perry Webb, former pastor of the First Baptist Church of San Antonio, once said, “A religion that does not look out and reach out and help out is washed out.”

Let us then put our faith into action and thus prove to all the world that it is not dead.
