"Beloved, using all diligence to write to you of our common salvation, I have been obliged to write to you exhorting [you] to contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints"
Welcome! As my title indicates, this website is principally concerned with the teaching of Christianity as set out in the Bible. Articles recently added to the site can be accessed via the Updates May 2016 link. An index of all major articles can be found at General Index.
If you do not belong to Christ, I would urge you to go to "The Facts of Life". Spiritual things can only be understood by spiritual means (see 1 Corinthians 2: 13), and you will never really understand the Bible until you know the Lord. "Ye search the scriptures, for ye think that in them ye have life eternal, and they it is which bear witness concerning me ... these are written that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye might have life in his name" (John 5: 39; 20: 21).
The primary purpose of this venture, however, is to reach out to my brethren in Christ, and to provide them with an "outline of sound words" (2 Timothy 1: 13) so that they might "grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3: 18). To this end, I have brought together a collection of suitable articles - these may be accessed via the column opposite. Please do not take anything at face value, but search the Scriptures to see if these things are so (see Acts 17: 11). It may be that some of the things you read are different from what you have been taught previously. if so, check the facts out in the Word of God! All I would ask is that you don't just dismiss things out of hand. The Bereans received "the word with all readiness of mind" (my emphasis).
The translation of the Bible generally used (unless otherwise indicated) is by John Nelson Darby (JND) who lived in the period 1800 - 1882. Abbreviations are kept to a minimum, but two common ones are 'OT' for Old Testament and 'NT' for New Testament. It should also be noted that 'Assembly' is generally substituted for 'Church', the former being closer in meaning to the Greek original.
Nothing on the site is copyright, and you are free to download articles and to distribute them as you wish. You will also see that no authors are given. My reasons for this are as follows:
In view of the above, I take complete responsibility for the content of the website.
Please report any grammatical errors, inaccurate Scripture references, and hyperlink problems etc. Readers are welcome to send in articles (if non-copyright) to be considered for inclusion. Original work is especially welcome. Your prayers would also be much appreciated.
