Not Worthy

RR-April 7, 2016     The Christian is a man who expects nothing from this world. He does not pin his hopes on it, because he knows that it is doomed. The Christian is not a good man. He is a vile wretch who has been saved by the grace of God. Do you think…

The Scriptures And Sin

MTLB-Apr.4-Apr.7, 2016     By Arthur Pink   There is grave reason to believe that much Bible reading and Bible study of the last few years has been of no spiritual profit to those who engaged in it. Yes, we go further; we greatly fear that in many instances it has proved a curse rather…
