How can one God have three parts?

The mysteries of the Bible can be stumbling blocks to faith for many people. One of the biggest mysteries is “How can one God be made of three parts?”. This is known as the Trinity.  While there are several different ways to approach this, we can begin by examining ourselves. Read more…

Faith Will Give You Peace

Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

Philippians 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

As a believer, your faith is not of this world, but of the world to come. Therefore, it doesn’t pay to get too wrapped up in what happens here. Whether we abound in worldly blessings, or are abased in godly humility, we should be content. If the Lord has chosen to give us riches, then we are to remember that they come from him, and seek the purpose for which he’s given them. If we are experiencing hard times, we should know that we’re going through this to strengthen our faith, or to give God an opportunity to show his power. In all things, remember to give God the glory.

God Is Revealed Through Faith

Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

God gave us his word, in the form of the Bible in the hopes that we would read, study and pray, and therefore be led to him. God does not want us to be outside. Satan tricked Eve and separated God and Man. God gave us his Word, Jesus to lead us back.

Faith is the Key to Salvation

Romans 3:23   For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

No one is free from sin. We are all human. It doesn’t matter if it’s the addict in the street or the pope in the Vatican. We all live inside these bodies of flesh and bone, and we all sin. It doesn’t matter if the sin doesn’t show on the outside. We all know what we are on the inside. God knows too.

That’s why he sent his Son to die on the cross. By believing that God did this for us, we have access to what really moves God, faith. Even in the old testament, when the law was all man had to believe in, God said he would forgive those who had sinned, but had asked forgiveness and had returned to the law. Read more…

Faith Moves Mountains

Mark 11:22   And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
Mark 11:23   For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Faith in God the father and Jesus his son gives the Christian power. If you have enough faith, these verses are literal. If you doubt not, you could speak to a real mountain and it would be cast into the sea. Read more…
