Three Important Questions

by Jimmy Clark

“Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul?” (1 Corinthians 1:13). These three questions are set against the following background. “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 1:10-12). The plea made by Paul in Verse 10 is fully supported by the three questions. All three questions are rhetorical questions having a negative answer. Consider thoughts from these three important questions.

Saved By Childbearing

By T. Pierce Brown (deceased)


First Timothy 2:13-15 reads, “For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety.” This verse contains one of the most difficult expressions of the whole epistle. The question of how a woman can be saved through childbearing has given Bible scholars of all ages a difficult time. Almost all of them have missed one or two very significant points, to which I shall try to call your attention.

Evolutionists Are Very Nervous

by Carl B. Garner

It’s been in all the papers. “Intelligent Design.” It is really making some folks nervous because “Design” and “Darwin” don’t quite fit. Everything about “Darwin” says “random” or “chance,” but what we see all around us says “design.” It may be hard to believe, but there are some, even within the world of science, who suggest “design” should be included in science classes. Others, however, say, “We can’t do that – It’s nonsense to mix religion with science.”
