The Beatitudes, Part One: The Sermon on the Mount

'Personal' from John W. Ritenbaugh

Faith (Part 4)

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

The example of Lot's wife teaches us that God does not want us to maintain close associations with the world because it almost inevitably leads to compromise.

Christianity Is a Fight! (Part 3)

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

We must assiduously avoid following the negative examples of our forbears, adding that the promises and blessings were conditional. We, as God's called out ones, have been enlisted into spiritual warfare on three fronts: the heart, the world, and Satan the. . .

Letters to Seven Churches (Part Five): Thyatira

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

The Thyatira epistle carries a central theme for all seven churches, namely the tendency to syncretize or mix worldly ideas with the truth of God.

A Pillar of Salt

Sermonette by Joseph B. Baity

Joe Baity, focusing upon the cautionary statement of Christ in Luke 17:32, "Remember Lot's Wife," examines the possible motivation for God's choosing a salty demise for Lot's wife. In Genesis 19, we read the detailed account of how the super-pati. . .

Laodiceanism

Feast of Tabernacles Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

Are You Being Brainwashed? (Part 1)

Sermon by Martin G. Collins

Apostasy and Faith

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

The Sabbath is not a mere ceremonial observance, but identifies God's people as different, and consequently a perpetual irritant to the world.

The Christian and the World (Part 9)

The Handwriting Is on the Wall (1996)

Feast of Tabernacles Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

God initiated the scattering of the church for our ultimate good. When the revelation of God was replaced with the wisdom of this world, God intervened.

Christmas, Syncretism, and Presumption

'Personal' from John W. Ritenbaugh

Many think keeping Christmas is fine, yet God never tells us to celebrate His Son's birth. Celebrating such an obvious mix of paganism s presumptuous.
