When We Should Not Forgive!

Based on the writings of David Berg

free-bible-studies-online-when-we-should-not-forgive

The love and mercy and forgiveness that God offers us through Jesus Christ is so great, so wonderful, that we can’t really fully understand it! We certainly don’t DESERVE it! None of us are “good” enough to deserve forgiveness of sins and His gift of Eternal Life to us! Yet it is ours for the asking if we will only believe on Him, repent of our selfish, wrong ways and ask His forgiveness.–Such love!

This love and  . . .  read more

A Lesson for all!

An ancient legend from the East tells how a great Sultan–who was known for being a devout man of God–overslept and didn’t awaken at the hour of prayer. When the Devil saw that the hour was passing, he came and waked him, urging him to get out of bed and pray.

“Who are you?” said the startled Sultan, still rubbing the sleep from his eyes.

“Oh, it’s not important.” replied the shady figure. “The important thing is that I woke . . .  read more

Based on the writings of David Berg

Throughout His life and ministry, Jesus often taught in PARABLES. One of the shortest, yet one of the most profound of all His parables was that of the Pharisee and the Publican. The Bible tells us that Jesus “spake this parable unto those who trusted in THEMSELVES, that THEY were righteous, and who therefore despised and looked down upon others.” (Luke 18:9)

Before we read the actual parable, it might be helpful to know exactly what a “Pharisee”, . . .  read more

Overcoming Vices!

Based on the writings of David Berg

We all have habits, both good and bad. Anything you do automatically without consciously thinking about it, or without specifically deciding to do it, is a habit. Good habits or practices–such as tidiness, courtesy, good manners etc. are a real blessing. But when the habits you’ve picked up are BAD or DESTRUCTIVE, and you find them hard or almost impossible to change, they are known as VICES.

There’s a true story about a man who owned an . . .  read more

God Is Not a Pacifist!

Based on the writings of David Berg

Some people use parts of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, where He said to “resist not evil”, to advocate that all Christians should be PACIFISTS, and that even in the face of an onslaught of anti-God, atheistic enemies, should do nothing. There is no doubt that we should obey Christ’s commandments, but it would be wise to first study His Words carefully so that we can know exactly HOW He wishes us to APPLY them to our INDIVIDUAL lives, . . .  read more

The Benefits of Backsliding

God’s Way Up Is Down!

Someone asked me, “If you backslide”—meaning you revert to your old wrongful ways and attitudes after you’ve received Jesus as your Savior—”can you ever get back to the Lord as close as you were before?”

“Yes,” I answered, “and many times even closer!” Another question followed.

“After Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit and knew evil for the first time, they were afraid of God and hid when they heard His voice in the Garden of . . .  read more

Love Never Fails

All the introspection, analyzing, and agonizing over your weaknesses, failures, and faults are merely works of the flesh that will have to be repeated next week. Battles never cease! “Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalm 34:19).

Only God can do it! Our salvation is only by grace, never by our own works or battling in the flesh with our sins. If God can’t deliver us, nobody can!
