“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God” (John 3:1-5).

Perhaps the idea of being “born again” doesn’t … Read More »


WHAT THE CROSS PROVIDES

Posted by General Youth Division in FAQ. 1 Comment

14th June

Today, there is not a whole lot of talk about Calvary. In many churches, Easter may be the only Sunday that it is ever mentioned. For many it is probably nothing more than a historical event. Christians routinely and, in my opinion, carelessly wear a crucifix around their neck to remind them that Jesus died for their sins. But the cross of Calvary is so much more than a historical event. And certainly, it is more than just a decorative ornament. In fact, there was nothing attractive about Calvary. It was a horribly ugly event. And yet in spite of the pain, in spite of the rejection, Jesus so hated sin that He chose to die on the cross of Calvary. Sin is the reason for all the world’s problems. And sin is the reason for the cross of Calvary. … Read More »


What is Tithe?

“Generosity is to materialism what kryptonite is to Superman.” — Lloyd Shadrach, pastor and author

“Giving is more than a responsibility—it is a privilege; more than an act of obedience—it is evidence of our faith.” —William Arthur Ward (1921-94), American Educator

What is the tithe? The English-speaking Bible is primarily translated from the original languages of Hebrew and Greek. In Hebrew, “maaser” or “maasrah,” is translated tenth, or tenth part; and in Greek, “apodekatoo.” It means a payment, or giving, or receiving of the tenth.

The tithe is that tenth of our income that God asks for, which—when we cheerfully give to God—comes with a powerful promise!

Malachi 3:10: “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows … Read More »


What Does the Bible Say About Abortion?

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”

· The Bible teaches that human life is different from other life forms on Earth; first of all, because mankind was made in the image of God.

Genesis 2:7: “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”

· Also, we see that unlike every other creature, God’s own breath gave man life and instantly gave man an eternal soul.

Deuteronomy 30:19: “I call heaven … Read More »
