Why The Name, “Jesus Alone?”

Is Jesus Alone a title that supports the Oneness Pentecostal teaching that is also called, “Jesus Only?” It’s understandable why some might get that idea from the title of this website as, “Jesus Alone” and TheLordAlone.com. The focus is certainly on the person of Jesus Christ and His gospel. However, I do not hold theContinue reading “Why The Name, “Jesus Alone?””

Which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind.

One thing that frustrates me the most is when my words or actions or are misinterpreted for evil when I intended them for good. This seems to happen a lot, so it must be that I am terrible at communication. I know that can be the case. Other times, I wonder if the misinterpretations areContinue reading “Which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind.”

Love That Surpasses Understanding

One of the things that I’ve read about in scripture is “peace that surpasses understanding.” That is something that I hope for, and I have experienced this peace in varying measures at times–though not at all as consistently as I’d like. There are many things that chip away at our peace. For some, relationship problemsContinue reading “Love That Surpasses Understanding”

Does Anyone Have Faith?

For most of my life, I thought that everyone was a Christian because most people said that they were. I grew up in a family of people who said they were Christian. The people I went to school with were Christians. It was rare to hear of someone who did not believe in Jesus. Now,Continue reading “Does Anyone Have Faith?”

Jesus is True.

“To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” [i] There are many kinds of truth, but there is only one truth that saves mankind, and this is He who isContinue reading “Jesus is True.”

He That is in Us is Stronger

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be ledContinue reading “He That is in Us is Stronger”

An Unnamed Lamentation of a Servant of Jesus Christ

I can almost hear it. The sound of many singing pop Christian songs to the Lord, muffled through the blood that gurgles in their throats—the blood of many who reject Jesus in sincerity. They drown in it, all the while praising God in vain, thinking themselves alive and accepted. Lord have mercy. Our world isContinue reading “An Unnamed Lamentation of a Servant of Jesus Christ”

The Father is Wise in Hiding His Son from Us

Before I received the Holy Spirit, I remember thinking that if I had the Spirit of God within me, then I would have Jesus with me all the time and I would not feel alone anymore. Feeling alone in this world has been a constant for most of my life, and I assume that theContinue reading “The Father is Wise in Hiding His Son from Us”

Understanding and Doing Are Not the Same, But We Can Have Faith

There is a danger in public ministry, even if we have a blog that only a handful of people read. If we have a good gift and if we grow in our ability to use that gift, this might create an outward appearance of being more righteous than we are. I don’t like to writeContinue reading “Understanding and Doing Are Not the Same, But We Can Have Faith”

Lessons from Ananias and Saphira

Have you read the story in the Bible about the couple that was struck down dead for lying to the Holy Spirit? I want to write this post as a follow up to my previous post, All In. There is a story in the Bible of a husband and wife who claimed to be “allContinue reading “Lessons from Ananias and Saphira”
