A Book Review of What Does the Bible Really Teach? by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society

A group of people studying the Bible together.

I will be the first to admit that the Bible can be challenging to understand. It takes effort and diligence to find what it teaches on many topics. Nearly all of them are discussed in a variety of sections of the Scriptures. Because of this, some may be interested to read What Does the Bible Really Teach? by the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society as a study aid.

The Blessing of the Revelations of God to the Jewish People

Last year I began writing some articles on concepts from the Book of Romans. I've already discussed a few ideas from the first two chapters, but never shared anything on chapter three and onward. The reason is because I have not been able to write about the Jewish people being blessed by having the revelations of God. This is mentioned in Romans 3:2. I'm glad to say that I am finally sharing some thoughts on this verse today.

A Book Review of Protecting Your Home From Spiritual Darkness by Chuck D. Pierce and Rebecca Wagner Sytsema 

In the dark of night a small log cabin can be seen in the bottom left corner of the image. Its lights are on, but nobody is visible from the outside. A river is near the house. Rolling fog is over the water. The moon stands watch near the top of picture.

I am a strong proponent of protecting the family both physically and spiritually. As a husband, father, and man, I consider defending my family to be one of my most important duties. Because of this, when I first found Protecting Your Home From Spiritual Darkness, I was immediately interested in its subject matter.

Look to Him Who Can Bestow Mercy, As Taught in Psalm 123

We all look up to someone, especially when we are younger since so many are older and taller than us. There is more to it than that though. It may be that the one we are looking to is greater than ourselves. This concept is even affirmed in Psalm 123. However, it also goes a step further and adds a plea of mercy to the idea.

A Reflection on MacLaren’s Exposition of Psalm 134 and the Burning of Cloaks

My last post pointed out that the priestly service was done during the day and night. While doing research for it I came upon a commentary that shed more light on that fact. MacLaren's Expositions describes how the temple was guarded and what would happen if someone was caught sleeping. His comments are what I want to reflect on today.
