Living Wisely

by

Far too often people endure hardship and difficulty because of the foolish choices they make. Despite God clearly telling us that “Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom” (Prov. 4:7), there is not nearly as much talk about, or pursuit of wisdom in Christianity as there ought to be. For example, when was the last time […]

Understanding the Book of Romans: Righteousness by Faith in Christ

by

The book of Romans is the great doctrinal treatise that forms the foundation of the Christian faith and clearly sets forth that salvation comes by faith in Jesus Christ. Many people are overburdened by sin because they erroneously think it puts their salvation in doubt. Christians who believe in Christ think that if they commit […]

Should Women Be Silent in the Church?

by

For almost 2 millennia, the voice of women has been stifled in the Church. Interestingly, this has been in large part due to just two references in the New Testament: 1 Timothy 2:12 and 1 Corinthians 14:34 and 35. Something about these three verses, however, is that the way they have been translated and handled […]

Who is Jesus Christ?

by

It has been stated that no single person has had more effect on history than Jesus Christ. But now, just as when he lived, there are a lot of different opinions about him, ranging from a deceiver to the Son of God. In this teaching John Schoenheit opens the Word of God to see what […]

Giving & Tithing

by

The Christian world is very confused about giving and tithing. Many Christians believe that God commands them to tithe, and some believe that if a person does not tithe he will be cursed by God. This causes guilt, shame, and even fear among Christians who do not tithe. In this teaching, John Schoenheit opens the […]

The Giver and The Gift: A Study of the Holy Spirit

by

The doctrine of the Trinity teaches that “the Holy Spirit” is the Third Person in the Godhead. This has led to people misreading and misunderstanding many Scriptures about the wonderful gift of God, the holy spirit. This teaching, “The Giver and the Gift,” shows that because God is holy and God is spirit, one of […]

What is going on in Heaven?

by

If you are like most people, you have pictured heaven as a peaceful and restful place. Certainly it must be a wonderful place, but it is probably not like we imagine it to be. Do you think it is a tranquil place where angels strum on harps all day and God rules from His throne […]

Is God in Control of Everything That Happens?

by

Many people believe that “God is in control” of things on earth today, and that everything that happens is His will. However, that is not what the Bible actually says and furthermore, it makes God out to be very unloving and unfair. In this teaching John Schoenheit explains what he means when he says that […]

Character Counts

Far too often Christians fail to understand the significant role a person’s character plays in life both now, and as the basis for rewards at the Judgment. God is so concerned about our character that he has filled His Word with character instructions and lessons. In this teaching Dan Gallagher and John Schoenheit together define […]

Prayer Matters

by

God wants Christians to pray. He urges, even commands us over and over, to pray. We are to pray throughout the day about everything that is happening around us. “Be…faithful in prayer” (Rom. 12:12); “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests” (Eph. 6:18); “…in everything, by prayer […]
