How do you answer those who embrace the idea of reincarnation? Sometimes called the transmigration of the soul, it is an attempt to overcome the hopelessness of thinking there is nothing beyond death, while refusing to accept the Bible’s teaching as stated in Heb 9:27, “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” But here is a wise way to respond. My friend Anil and I were speaking to an old Hindu who felt he should explain reincarnation to me. When he finished, I said, “Anil, what do you think of that?” Looking in love on the old Hindu, Anil said, “Do you know what I...

George Hucklesby shows the simple but effective method used by the one who led him into full assurance. After hearing a gospel message, a kind lady asked him if he was sure of being saved. No, he was not. “Would you like to be saved now?” she asked. “Yes,” he responded, but wondered how that was possible. She asked George to kneel with her as she “asked the Lord to complete His work of grace in my heart.” On their knees, she opened the Bible at Isaiah 53 and asked him to read the fifth verse this way, “But he was wounded for my transgressions, he was bruised for my iniquities: the...

Two great sins are marked out in Scripture by other sinners being threatened with having “their portion with hypocrites” (Mt 24:51), and that God “will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers” (Lk 12:46). Who can say which is greater? Certainly the Lord reserved His most scathing words for hypocrites. As He said, “Woe to you…hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in” (Mt 23:13). Through hypocrisy, both leader and follower perish. The curse of hypocrisy is this: as long as a person...

James M. Gray, longtime Dean at Moody Bible Institute, tells his story: “I regularly attended church. At 14, when I knew ‘the creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the ten commandments’ I was ‘confirmed in the most holy faith’ by a bishop of our church, and was taught that I had become a child of God. But this I do not now believe. My true conversion took place seven years later. I was reading a book by William Arnot called Laws from Heaven for Life on Earth. For my Bible I did not care, but this book had a strong attraction to me. One night, after an exciting evening among worldly people, my eye...

Historian Arnold Toynbee, in an essay titled Christianity and Civilization, presented at Oxford University, said: “Democracy is another leaf from the book of Christianity, which has also, I fear, been torn out and, while perhaps not misread, has certainly been half emptied of meaning by being divorced from its Christian context and secularized; and we have obviously, for a number of generations past, been living on spiritual capital, I mean clinging to Christian practice without possessing the Christian belief, and practice unsupported by belief is a wasting asset, as we have suddenly...

H.A. Ironside tells of open-air meetings in Albuquerque, NM. A gambler who had moved there for his tuberculosis had been convicted of sin, but was unsure there was mercy for him. When Ironside visited him, “he said, ‘I’m praying; I’ve made up my mind that if I have to go to hell, I’ll go praying.’” Ironside explained that salvation was a gift, gave him some gospel booklets to read, and left. The following evening he returned and, rapidly succumbing to the disease, brokenly told what had transpired: “This afternoon I lay on the bed–I took the tracts and tried to read–My aunt came in–I asked...
