The Honest Apostles

Sat-July 9, 2016     By Henry M. Morris, Ph.D.   “[We] have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God” (II Corinthians 4:2). One of the most futile…

So many millions of nominal Christians!

QH-July 9, 2016     By Arthur Pink   “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in Heaven.” Matthew 7:21 “Holding to the form of godliness but denying its power.” 2 Timothy 3:5 Never have there…
