The Occult: With the rise of secularization, the rock culture and drug cults, the West has seen a resurgence of satanism and black arts. Occultare is Latin for secret or hidden. The truth can stand the light and the Bible shines on such practices (Deut 18:9-14; Acts 13:6-12; 19:19). As to Christ’s ministry, He said, “I spoke openly to the world…and in secret I have said nothing” (Jn 18:20). Of His victory: “Having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them” (Col 2:15). Concerning His resurrection: “Him God raised up on the third day, and showed Him...

David Livingstone (1813-1873), Scottish missionary and explorer of Africa, visited Cambridge on December 4, 1857. To the student body he said: “People talk of the sacrifice I have made in spending so much of my life in Africa. Can that be called a sacrifice which is simply paid back as a small part of a great debt owing to our God, which we can never repay? Is that a sacrifice which brings…bright hope of a glorious destiny hereafter? Away with the word! It is emphatically no sacrifice. Say rather it is a privilege. Anxiety, sickness, suffering, or danger…with a foregoing of the common...

“Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?” (Jer 23:29). Christian apologist Bernard Ramm writes about the Bible and its critics: “A thousand times over, the death knell of the Bible has been sounded, the funeral procession formed, the inscription cut on the tombstone, and the committal read. But somehow the corpse never stays put. No other book has been so chopped, knived, sifted, scrutinized, and vilified. What book on philosophy or religion or psychology or belles lettres of classical or modern times has been subjected to such a mass...

In his biography by Johannes Gossner, Martin Boos (1762-1825), a Roman Catholic priest, tells how he was saved: “In 1788 or 1789 I visited a sick person respected for her deep humility and piety. I said to her, ‘You will die peacefully and happily.’ ‘Why so?’ she asked. ‘Because you have led such a holy life.’ The good woman smiled at my words and said, ‘If I leave the world relying on my own piety, I am sure to be lost. But relying on Jesus my Savior, I can die in comfort. What a clergyman you are! If I listened to you, what would become of me? No; if Christ had not died for me, if He had...

“We preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block, and to the Greeks foolishness” (1 Cor 1:23). I want to ask you a question. When the real Jesus was on earth and people met Him, how did they respond? Thankfully, some bowed before Him in adoration. Think of the cleansed Samaritan leper, or the repentant thief, or Thomas as he looked at Calvary’s war wounds. Others were terrified. Recall the demons called Legion, or the ruffians who came to arrest Him, driven back by the mere mention of His “I Am!” Still others were enflamed with hatred. They took up stones to stone Him. The crowd...

In These My People, Lil Dickson tells the story of a mountain village in Formosa during Japanese occupation: “The policeman there was like a little king. It seemed he could do anything. He became enraged because many were becoming Christians. So he issued an edict: within three days everyone must take an oath, ‘I will not become a Christian,’ or they would be tied hand and foot and thrown in the river. The people met to discuss the issue. Some said they better give up Christianity. But a boy stood up and said, ‘Don’t you remember? Jesus said, “Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot...
