Be Thou Faithful

By Cecil Willis "Fear not the things which thou art about to suffer: behold, the devil is about to cast some of YOU into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days. Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee the crown of life." Revelation 2:10. These words were … [Read more...]

Repent And Pray

By Luther G. Roberts The apostle Peter commanded Simon, an erring child of God to "repent and pray."

The Latter End Is Worse

By Bill Cavender The second epistle of Peter was written shortlv before his death. (1:14.) It was written to remind the brethren of: the exceeding great and precious promises of which they were partakers, (1:4) ; the conditions upon which the promises were to be obtained, (1:5-14 ); the grounds … [Read more...]

Examine Yourselves Whether You Be In The Faith

Be Not Conformed To This World

By Earl Fly It is a tragic and sorrowful fact that many of God's children are traveling the worldly road to an eternal hell. They have forfeited their right to the tree of life and a home in heaven by becoming entangled again in the pollutions of the world. "The latter end is worse with them than … [Read more...]

Forsaking The Assembly

By Harry Pickup, Jr. One of the earliest signs of personal apostasy is the neglect of the Christian to come together with his brethren for edification. To continue in this will ultimately result in complete abandonment of Christianity both doctrinally and morally. There can hardly be a doctrinal … [Read more...]

The Possibility of Apostasy

By Paul Foutz The issue involved in this study is not whether a child of God may apostatize but can he do so? Is it possible? I do not content that any child of the Lord will fall away so as to be lost but I affirm that there is a possibility of such taking place. Many of our religious friends … [Read more...]
