Battle for the Pulpit

Our world is embattled to a greater extent. Wars bombard us on all fronts. We fight for survival from unforeseen dangers and injuries. We eat, breathe, sleep, shower, and do everything that has become routine. To your dismay and mine, even the pulpit is embattled. This looks scary, right? Maybe you may begin thinking in […]

An Argument More Eloquent than all Doctrines

Doctrinal integrity is something that makes one invincible. A man or a woman armed with the unquestionable authority of the Bible is not someone to joke with. An armament of sound doctrine makes one preach with power, and silence every erroneous teaching and opinion. Doctrinal soundness is the spinal cord of every religious practice and worship. The distinction between true and pure religion is based on what is taught by either.

Anyone who brings their opinions in stipulated discourses plays on unsafe ground, and will sooner or later be dumbfounded and be sent out of the arena.
