Salvation includes many interconnected teachings. Here are some examples: “Whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified” (Rom. 8:29-30). “Blessed be the God…who…chose us in Him before the foundation of the world,…having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by...

Edward and Anna Scott arrived in India in the fall of 1862. Settling in the northeast state of Assam, they threw themselves into the work of God. However, after seven years, Scott felt the Lord calling him to take the gospel into what is now Nagaland. The Naga were brutal head hunters. Before a man was allowed to marry, he must kill at least 30 of his enemies. The British military commander warned him it would cost him his life. But Scott persisted, and with his Bible and violin, he headed into Nagaland. Soon he was surrounded by twelve spear-wielding warriors. Things looked bleak, but Scott...

I had a long wait leaving Prescott, Arizona, but finally the right man came along. “I don’t know why I stopped,” he said. “You’re the first man I’ve ever picked up.” “Perhaps the Lord had something to do with it,” I replied. When I asked if he would like to be saved and know it, he exclaimed, “Just this week I went to see a preacher. I asked if he could tell me how to get right with God. He said, ‘Join my church and pay your tithes.’” I said, “It would have done you just as much good if you had joined the Elks and paid your dues. Salvation isn’t by joining or paying, but by believing and...

“In the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be self lovers, money lovers,…pleasure lovers and no God lovers; having a form of godliness, but denying its power” (2 Tim 3:1-5). Who are the people we meet every day? George Barna writes: “The most quoted ‘Bible verse’ in America is: ‘God helps those who help themselves’; 82 percent believe that is a direct quote from the Bible…Our research has discovered that fewer than 10 percent of American Christians actually possess a biblical worldview…In short, the spirituality of Americans is Christian in name only. We desire experience...

In his remarkable account, Incidents of Gospel Work, Charles Stanley of Rotherham, England writes: “On one occasion I felt a distinct call to preach at a place I had only seen once. I did not know the name of the town, but I described it to a person from Staffordshire, who told me it was Uttoxeter. I continued in prayer during that week. On Friday I received a letter from Tenby, South Wales, enclosing a letter from a believer from Uttoxeter, asking the lady in Tenby if she could forward the enclosed letter to me. It was a request for me to preach the gospel at Uttoxeter. I immediately went...

Do you take the Bible literally? The answer, of course, is “Yes and No.” A good answer this question: We take the Bible in its plain and obvious sense, unless otherwise indicated. It may be better to say we take a literary approach to the Word of God. Like any great literature, there are different ways of expressing ideas. Robert Little writes: “Parts of the Bible are obviously written in symbolic language, for example, Ezekiel’s vision of the cherubim. The book of Revelation is declared to be communicated in symbolic language (1:1), and it contains much that must be taken in this way. An...
