Righteous Judgement

Righteous Judgement Mark Robertson

Many have misunderstood what Jesus said and have decided to apply justice, mercy and faith without law. Some who think the law is done away think you can still have justice, mercy and faith, but that doesn't sense. How can you apply "justice"— a legal term — if there is no law? How can you apply mercy when there is no reference point?

The doctrine of the trinity has wide acceptance through the general Christian world and we can conclude that, as this doctrine is reported to have a significant bearing on our faith, it must be supported by well-documented easy-to-understand Scriptures.

Does the Devil Have a Place?

Does the Devil Have a Place? Bill Bradford

Satan the devil is alive and well. When God created angels, He created them with the power of free choice, with the potential for any of them to choose the alternative to God's way of life - the way of evil. In time, one of the angelic beings — an enormously powerful spirit being — explored the alternative way of life and he finally chose the way of self importance, rather than God's way of love and outgoing concern for others. He, and a multitude of angels who followed him, became the enemy of God and humanity. Find out why he is still here...
