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. […]
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. […]
I have an announcement. 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. Though I will be posting less often while I work on my big project, I’m not planning on stopping all together. […]
I am happy to announce that a book version of my Zero Fluff Bible study on the deity of Christ is now available! There is also a Kindle version. Both versions can be found on Amazon. The print and Kindle versions have been updated. They have been edited for grammatical improvements and include an added detailed outline of all the verses in the study! […]
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. […]
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 1 of A Zero Fluff Bible Study on the deity of Christ!
We will begin our study by examining singular verses that demonstrate the deity of Christ. Reading these verses alone (in context of course) shows that Jesus is in fact God. These are primary texts on this topic, for they address the matter clearly and directly. They don’t leave you wondering about the identity of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I invite you to join me and walk through some significant biblical evidence for the deity of Christ to the glory of God.
This will be a Zero fluff study. It’s the only way I know how to offer it. This means it will not be like the many studies, books, and teachings that are geared towards women today that are heavy on fluff and light on sound doctrine. We will dig deeply!
I hope you join me. This study will not disappoint!
Studying the Bible is key to a healthy Christian life. Together with the work of the Holy Spirit, knowing and obeying God’s word helps us to live lives that are more pleasing to Him as we submit to His will. His word can also protect us from or free us …
The story of how English Bibles came into existence is fascinating. It is a story of hard work, tremendous sacrifice, faith, and even politics. What took place centuries ago not only deeply affected the course of the Reformation; it also had and still has eternal implications for many.

The printed text in our Bibles may look ordinary, but the Scriptures are supernatural. God’s word, a sword like no other, can pierce the division of soul and spirit and judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. That’s supernatural and terrifying and awesome. We serve a holy God and His word is beyond precious. […]
Have you ever had the opportunity to study the doctrine of justification before either at church or on your own? If not, I would like to encourage you to learn more about it. It can lead to deeper joy as you come to understand the gospel better, and it can be a part of being ready to give a defense for the hope that is in you. (1 Peter 3:15)
This particular story is important to know. The Reformation happened for a reason, well many reasons actually. It had a profound impact on individual lives and countries in Europe, and was a true turning point in church and world history. I encourage you to look into it if you haven’t already.
Work towards knowing God more every day as much as possible while on this earth. (Colossians 1:10) Pray for your sight to increase. Know Him in Jesus Christ, for He is the image of the invisible God. (Colossians 1:15)
After seeing yet another example of a disturbing lack of biblical discernment and conviction by church leaders who bear the name Christian, I thumbed out a text to our children motivated by a deep desire for them to avoid falling into errors within the church.
It’s one week into the new year already! Time to talk about Bible reading plans. Too late? No! Though this post was written in December, I waited till now. I’m hoping it might serve as encouragement that seven days, seven weeks, or seven months after January 1 is not too late to begin or start again if you have gotten off track.
But first, 3 quick Poll questions about Bible reading. […]
Although my testimony could be summed up with the much loved words “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me”, there are more details I like to share. Today, I’d like to share another small part of my story. For some reason, my testimony tends to be a bit long. Maybe it’s because I cherish every single event that led up to coming to know God and those events occurred over years. I’ve yet to write it all down; but I like to share what I can, when I can, to God’s glory.
I never tire of hearing the testimonies of others, for in them are glimpses of the power and work of God. If you have yours posted online and would like to share it, please put the link in a comment below. I would love to read it. […]
With the early-bird discounted rate deadline for booking the 2016 Living Proof Live Simulcast fast approaching (November 15), I thought it might be helpful to have a streamline list of the voluminous amount of information regarding the issues surrounding Beth Moore’s ministry, issues that might affect ones decision about booking or not. This list is in no way exhaustive, but it does hit some major points. The information below was gathered carefully and prayerfully over time. This work was not done speedily, shallowly, or flippantly. To me, this is all quite serious. Making this list gives me no joy. My heart weighs heavy with concern. That is my motivation not any dislike for or judgment against Mrs. Moore personally. She appears to be very likable. This is about her teachings. (Acts 17:11) […]
