Because of my husband’s quick leadership – and because I followed it – I did not proceed to wallow in negativity. I did not catastrophize more about the future. Instead, we thanked God for the weekend experiences and memories, I thanked God for my husband, and we prayed that relief would come soon.
When I think back to some of the events leading up to my salvation and how I came to faith, I’m still amazed by what God did. My gratitude is inexpressible. Every Christian is blessed beyond measure to be His child. Here is a story of one of the events that took place before I was a Christian. I love this story and I love telling it. Enjoy!
Going to church, a Bible study, or a Christian conference? About to start a Christian book, listen to a Christian podcast, or read a Christian blog post? Whatever Christian content you are about to take in, don’t forget your Bible, discernment, and this guide. They can help you to avoid or escape the snare of false teachings. […]
BIBLICAL DISCERNMENT is vital. Without it, anyone can fall prey to false teachers and their teachings. We can get snared by these false teachings when we are not able to see how they differ from sound biblical teachings and the Bible. As a result, our knowledge of God and His word suffers. For these reasons, we need to learn discernment and get better at it every day. This article will help you do that. […]
There are a lot of scary things going on in the world right now. 2020 has managed to pack a decade’s worth of trouble into one year! Of course, scary things have been going on in the world for a long time, and our personal lives are no different. Each day can bring something new to worry about or fear. Life – it isn’t easy. […]
Some people hold to the idea that Christians are meant to have prosperity, health, and happiness. It is also believed that Christians can expect to have things go their way in life; they just need to believe and receive. […]
Rule # 1: Be a good wife according to God’s standards as revealed in the Bible. When you are considering God’s standards as revealed in the Bible, be sure to include all of the Bible verses that apply to godly behavior, not just the verses about marriage. […]
God is the Almighty Creator. From the smallest particles like electrons and quarks to the red supergiants, His work is magnificent! Since man was made in His image, it is not surprising that mankind has produced so many beautiful pieces of art and other wonders. […]
After a lot of praying and weighing of options, I have decided to turn most of my writing energy towards a major project that I have wanted to finish for years. […]

One significant danger that comes with modern technology is that it can be used to harm others. The possibilities to do harm seem endless. Because of this, we need to be mindful of our safety and privacy no matter what technology we use, whether it is the internet, smart phones, or smart devices in our homes. This is especially true for victims of domestic abuse and dating abuse. […]
Ok, I really do not want you to worry about anything, but which Bible that you choose to use for your reading plan and for all of your other Bible reading and study is a very important decision. Choosing a Bible is probably one of the most important decisions we make as Christians. […]
Have you ever heard a Christian say that there is only one way to heaven or that there is only one way of salvation? I hope so. We say this not because we made it up. We didn’t invent it, though there are countless inventions of the sort in the world. […]
This is the last lesson in our study! Thank you for joining me on this adventure. Though this is the final lesson, it need not be the end of studying this aspect of our Lord Jesus Christ. There is always more to learn, and we must always seek to grow in our knowledge of Him. (2 Peter 3:18)
In this lesson, we are going to consider some of the incommunicable attributes of God. We will apply them as a sort of litmus test. For if Jesus is God, we would not be surprised to see and would even expect to see incommunicable attributes of God attributed to Him. Does the Bible show that Jesus has attributes like omnipresence, eternality, immutability, and others? We shall soon see.
For our purposes in our study on the deity of Christ, we can use what the Bible reveals about God to help us determine if Jesus is God. For if Jesus is in fact God, then we would expect the biblical record to show works of God done by Him and attributes of God displayed in Him. We would not have to see all of God’s works and attributes in Jesus, but we would expect to see some. So did New Testament writers record that Jesus did the works of God and did they write that He had the attributes of God? Let’s take a look.
Welcome to Lesson 6! This lesson contains a collection of verse sets that I refer to as “the ONLYs”. Each set covers something that is said to be true only of God. Hence the name! We are going to look at six things about God that the Bible tells us only apply to Him. God is God after all. It is right that He is unique! This uniqueness also helps us when we are considering the deity of Christ for if any one of the six things were attributed to Him, that would point to His deity. And if all six were? Simple logic would dictate this conclusion: He is God!
Welcome to Lesson 5 of A Zero Fluff Bible Study on the deity of Christ! We have four more illuminating verse sets in this lesson that demonstrate the deity of Christ. These sets pair verses from the books of Psalms and Zechariah with verses in the New Testament.
Welcome to Lesson 4! This lesson continues with “verses sets” that demonstrate the deity of Christ. As explained in the previous lesson, verse sets are made up of two or more verses that, when read in light of each other, give evidence that Jesus is God. This lesson contains three verse sets that happen to be some of my favorites. They all pair verses from the book of Isaiah with verses in the New Testament. The book of Isaiah has a lot to say about Jesus!
