Love the Truth — Part 2

Scripture instructs us to love the truth (Zechariah 8:19). We are warned that we are subject to being deceived if we do not “receive the love of the truth” (2 Thessalonians 2:10). Further, we’re told that God hates lying, and hates lies (Proverbs 6:17, 19). The punishment of eternal death awaits those who persist in lying and will not repent (Revelation 21:8). In this message are discussed additional points related to the subject, “love the truth.”

Love the Truth — Part 1

One of the challenges that we face every day as Christians, to one degree or another, throughout our entire lives, is to love the truth. How much do you love the truth?

The Two Covenants — Part 4

In our series on the two covenants, we have reached the point of asking, and finding the Biblical answer to, the questions of what was the problem with the Old Covenant that it had to be replaced? It’s not what most have assumed, or been taught by the purveyors of false doctrine.

Was spiritual conversion required under the Old Covenant? Was it Possible? These are key questions, the answers of which need to be understood if we are to truly understand where the Old Covenant, and its replacement, the New Covenant, fit in God’s dealings with mankind.
