Edward Studd, after making a fortune in the tea business in India, returned to England to raise his family in a life of lavish excess, living for the world that is soon to be burned. But in 1875, that changed when their father was saved under the preaching of D.L. Moody. The three eldest boys, C.T., Kynaston and George, had been brought up in a religious environment that was, as C.T. later wrote, “a Sunday thing, like one’s Sunday clothes, to be put away on Monday morning.” But now Edward Studd was “a real live play-the-game Christian.” Within a year, all three were saved. The Studd boys...

How were the books of the Bible selected? “Canonicity” refers to the standard used to include these writings. God determined canonicity by inspiring certain men to write the Bible. Norman Geisler and William Nix give the questions used by the early church to determine this: 1. Is it authoritative? Though the writers claimed no authority themselves, their books have phrases like “Thus says the Lord” more than 2000 times, claiming to be God’s Word. 2. Is it prophetic? The apostles and prophets were the “holy men” God used. Their writings express a consistent view of God and His ways, and so...

Frederick N. Charrington, heir to the largest distillery in England, while traveling in France, met an acquaintance, William Rainsford, and invited him home. He writes: “When we arrived, to my astonishment Rainsford suddenly said, ‘I feel very guilty. We have traveled all the way over the Continent, and enjoyed ourselves very much, but I have never spoken to you about your soul. I must ask you if you are saved.’ I said, ‘Really, Rainsford, we have had a very good time, and I think it a great pity that you bring up such a debatable subject.’ He said, ‘I will only ask you to do one thing: when...

To some the mental image of God is a blur of disappointment. “Here,” they say resentfully, “is One whom I trusted, but He let me down.” The rest of their lives is shadowed by this letdown…God is a Disappointment. Some, of course, rather enjoy this never-failing well of grievance. The years by no means diminish the details of the Prayer that was Unanswered or the Disaster that was Undeserved…finding this the best possible excuse for those who do not wish to be involved in any moral responsibility.…People who feel that God is a Disappointment are wanting a world in which good is rewarded and...

Ray Comfort tells about a poster promoting atheism. It features pictures of Darwin, Jefferson and Lincoln, Ben Franklin, Einstein, Carl Sagan and Ernest Hemingway. “Atheism:” it says, “good enough for these idiots.” But is that true? Franklin wrote: “It is that particular wise and good God…that I propose for the object of my praise and adoration.” Einstein said, “There are yet people who say there is no God. But what makes me really angry is that they quote me for support of such views.” Darwin said he was compelled to look for an intelligent mind behind the universe “and I deserve to be...

Hypocrisy is the great impediment in evangelism. Our Lord prayed that His people might be marked by reality. “Sanctify them through Thy truth: Thy word is truth” (Jn 17:17). A.W. Tozer writes: Truth, to be understood, must be lived. Bible doctrine is wholly ineffective until it has been digested and assimilated by the total life. The essence of my belief is that there is a difference, a vast difference, between fact and truth. Truth in the Scriptures is more than a fact. A fact may be detached, impersonal, cold and totally disassociated from life. Truth, on the other hand, is warm, living,...
