“Bible Opposites” Series

arrow Bible Opposites Index The Bible often presents us with a choice of two contrasting things that are poles apart. Each of the lessons in this series takes one such pair of opposites as its topic.

LATEST LESSONS ON OPPOSITES

arrow Beauty and UglinessBeauty and ugliness are opposites which both appear prominently in the Bible. Especially in the cross of Christ we see disgusting ugliness contrasted to supreme beauty. Yes there is “wondrous beauty” in the cruel death of Christ.

arrow Heaven and HellDoes the Bible promise an eternal home in heaven? What will happen to our present home, planet earth? Is there an eternal hell? Find out here.

arrow Design and ChanceAre you a product of design or chance? At your conception, you were one single tiny cell. Now your body consists of around ten million million cells. These human cells individually and collectively show an origin of design as opposed to chance.

Other Latest lessons...


arrow Choked by Thorns, Bearing No FruitIs your life a rat race? Are you running around in circles, struggling with all of this world's demands, and bearing no fruit spiritually? Is the spiritual seed in you choked by thorns?


arrow Itching Ears, Itching Palms, Itching FeetWe all get an itch at times. It may be an itch that goes away with a scratch. Some people have an itch that is severe and very distressing. But the itches I want to talk about are spiritual itches. They are described metaphorically as itching ears, itching palms, and itching feet. However these are metaphors for itchings of the soul.


arrow What God Says About SexWhen I was young, “free love”, as it was called, was the popular thing. A sexual relationship was validated by being mutually loving and agreeable. On that basis you could have sex with whoever you wished. This was called “liberation” and was supposed to free a repressed society of many emotional problems. What does God say about this?


arrow Can We Pray to Jesus or Only to the Father?Some people (Jehovah's Witnesses for example) believe that we must pray only to the Heavenly Father and must not pray to Jesus or the Holy Spirit. Is this true? There are several things we need to consider. Let's just take these considerations one at a time.


arrow What Eternity Lacks(Revelation 21-22 overview)  The closing chapters of Revelation make us think about eternity, especially what eternity lacks. When we leave this present temporal world and enter eternity, some things we take for granted here will be no more and gone forever.


arrow The Unencumbered LifeThe choices you make in this life should be like Mary’s not Martha’s. The word of Jesus is available to you. Seize every opportunity to listen and consider. Don't let yourself be distracted by things that matter less. Keep them in their proper place. Remember worldly things, as good as they might be, are not eternal. Leave plenty of room for “that good part” of life.


arrow God Has a Purpose - Do We Have a Choice?God has always tried to demonstrate to humanity that his purpose never changes. He has also left every person the choice whether to follow his purpose or reject it. That is no contradiction. Bible examples show this.


arrow Sharing in Christ’s SufferingsIn this lesson, we think about Paul’s profound prayer in Philippians 3:10. In this verse, Paul states the very purpose of his life as a Christian.


arrow Are You Actually a Christian? If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you have not yet ACTUALLY become a Christian. You need to correct this.


arrow Are You Actively a Christian? If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you are not ACTIVELY a Christian. You need to correct this.


arrow Are You Christian in Attitude? If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you do not have the ATTITUDE of a Christian. You need to correct this.


arrow Are You a Christian in Ambition? If you cannot answer “yes” to these questions, then you do not have the AMBITION of a Christian. You need to correct this.

New in the 'Disciples' Series


arrow The Disciple’s Forgiveness. Jesus said, 'If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents forgive him' (Luke 17:3). This requires that sin be dealt with and not overlooked.


arrow The Disciple’s Repentance Repentance is necessary to forgiveness of sins. Three things accompany repentance: godly sorrow, confession of sins, and appropriateNbsp;deeds.


arrow The Disciple’s Fellowship Paul says, 'Note those who cause divisions and occasions of stumbling contrary to the teaching you have learned. Turn away from them' (Romans 16:17).


arrow The Disciple’s Judgment Some people will say, 'You have no right to judge'. Usually they have in mind the scripture that says, 'Do not judge, in order that you will not be judged' (Matthew 7:1-2). This can be misunderstood.


arrow The Disciple’s Justice God is always fair and just. He is no respecter of persons. The disciple of Christ likewise should be without partiality, hypocrisy, or injustice.


arrow A Disciple’s RebukeOccasionally in any group of Christ’s disciples, someone’s behaviour may not accord with a disciple’s code of conduct. Should that disciple be rebuked?


arrow A Disciple’s FearIn this lesson we discuss a disciple’s godly fear and what John meant when he said that there is no fear in love.


arrow The Disciplined IndividualAs disciples of Christ we are unique individuals free to live as we choose. We learn from Christ the right way to do this with individualism, discipleship, and initiative.
