Your Speech Betrays You

By John R. Gibson

 

As Peter warmed himself by the fire he was told, “Surely you also are one of them, for your speech betrays you” (John 18:18, 25; Matthew 27:73). While Peter’s denials of Jesus would make a good study, I want to focus on the idea of our speech betraying us. On more than one occasion Jesus pointed out that one’s words are reflective of his heart, some-times for good and sometimes for evil (e.g. Matthew 12:34-37; 15:18-19). What does our speech say about us? Does it betray something about us that, like Peter, we would prefer to deny?

Who Wrote the Bible? (Part 2)

By John R. Gibson

The Preacher said in Ecclesiastes 12:12, “Of making many books there is no end,” and since his time countless more books have been written, but the Bible claims it should be granted a unique position, head-and-shoulders above all others as the divinely inspired, all-sufficient guide for man (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). While its divine inspiration may be seen in various ways, we are seeking to emphasize its divine origin by noting how that even those who claim allegiance to the Bible clearly could not be the ones responsible for producing it.

Who Wrote the Bible? (Part 1)

By John R. Gibson

 

The Bible makes the bold claim within its pages that it originated with God. In 2 Tim. 3:16, 17 Paul wrote of the Scriptures’ ability to properly guide man and linked that to its origin. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” We find a similar claim made when the apostle Peter argues that the prophecies of old were not the result of anyone’s private or personal thinking, but instead “holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21).

You’re Tired and Don’t Feel That Great, But...

By John R. Gibson

 

Who hasn’t been in this situation? You’re tired and don’t feel your best, so you’re thinking about missing the worship assembly. You may tell yourself that the Bible never said a church had to meet on Wednesday night, or perhaps it’s a Sunday morning and you think that with a little rest you mightbe able go that night. Whatever the gathering and whatever the reason, if you’re not a health risk to others, please think about the following seven reasons to get up and go anyway.

Who Sinned?

By John R. Gibson

 

Israel was at the edge of Canaan when twelve leaders were told to spy out the land and then report back on both the inhabitants of Canaan and the nature of the land itself (Num. 13:1-20). As most readers are aware, they were unanimous in reporting that the land did indeed flow with “milk and honey” (Num. 13:27), but when it came to the people and their fortifications the spies were divided. While Joshua and Caleb affirmed that the land could be taken, ten of the spies gave a bad report, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we….and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight” (Num. 13:31-33).

Plain Words about Dress (Or Lack Thereof)

By John R. Gibson

 

Few bulletin articles begin with a warning, but I feel compelled to provide advance notice that this article will contain some quite explicit, though not vulgar, language. One would not be far off the mark if he said that the Bible begins and ends with references to the shame of nakedness (Genesis 3:7-10; Revelation 3:18), yet few today seem to have a sense of shame or modesty when it comes to the display of their bodies. No, complete public nakedness is still uncommon, but when Adam hid because he was naked, could his fig leaves have covered much less than the swimsuits of some Christians as they lounge by the pool, lay out at the beach, or hang out at the water park.
