  • Laws of God – 10 – You Shall Not Covet

    Laws of God – 10 – You Shall Not Covet

    To covet means to desire. Sin happens deep in the heart even before any work is done by the hands of men. This law of God is meant to show usthe evil and selfish desires that cause us to ‘love the world’ and neglect God. Until a man finds God as his treasure he will continually run after the world seeking happiness and satisfaction in earthly things. Sometimes men can clean up the outside like the lost priests and Pharisees […]

  • Laws of God – 9 – You shall not give false witness

    Laws of God – 9 – You shall not give false witness

    God’s word says – “all men are liars”. In this message, the point is that here is yet another way in which man has gone far from God being unlike him. God is true, yet men are liars. God loves truth, yet man loves that which is false. Perhaps among all the lying that goes on in our world, the worst is when a man says – ‘I have fellowship with God’ and yet walks in the darkness, or perhaps […]

  • Can God Forgive Without Giving Just Punishment?

    Can God Forgive Without Giving Just Punishment?

    Many people will confess that they have some sin in their life, but think that God will easily forgive. Especially Muslim’s make this mistake and believe that since God is “merciful” that therefore he can simply forgive any crime. The word of God rejects this outright showing that although he is a gracious and kind God, because he is holy and righteous he must punish sin. Only the Christian truly honors God’s justice in forgiveness, for he knows and believes […]

  • Are All Religions the Same?

    Are All Religions the Same?

    In Assam and India you will often hear people say, “All gods are the same,” or “All religions are the same.” Is this true? Obviously it is not. All religions are different in many important ways. Actually men say this because they want to keep a false sense of peace in a society of various religions, and are not hungry for the truth or seeking for God. Jesus is the only one that can truly show us God, since he […]

  • Laws of God – 8 – You shall not steal

    Laws of God – 8 – You shall not steal

    Another law that God has given to all men is that which says, ‘you shall not steal.’ Men steal because of greed, because of pride, because of selfishness, and love for the world and the things in the world. People would rather unjustly take from another than work with their hands and save up to share with those in need. People would rather hurt another by stealing than trust God to provide. The worst kind of thief is the religious […]

  • Laws of God – 7 – You Shall Not Commit Adultery

    Laws of God – 7 – You Shall Not Commit Adultery

    Jesus said that whoever looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Therefore all have broken this law of God and stand in need of forgiveness through Christ. God judges our thoughts as well as our actions. We were made male and female to reflect the glory of God, yet man perverts the beauty of God in marriage into something selfish and fleshly. Christ is the great example of love – selflessly loving […]

  • Redeem Us From Every Lawless Deed

    Redeem Us From Every Lawless Deed

    Freedom comes at a price. What is the redemption price for sin? How can a man be free of sin? Listen again to the story of Jesus Christ going to the cross for us, and what the Father did in making him our sacrifice. One day in history changed the course of our race. Every sin of ours was laid upon him. He bore our sins in his body on the cross. He redeemed us and now purifies us to […]

  • The Laws of God – 6 – You Shall Not Murder

    The Laws of God – 6 – You Shall Not Murder

    All men know that murder is evil, and yet murder happens in our world every day. Prior to salvation all men are murderers in their hearts and easily stirred to anger and hate. People have murderous words, murderous thoughts, and murderous deeds.  We are all sinners desperately in need of Christ. Only Christ can forgive us and free us from the sins of anger and murder and teach us how to love. It is not this law merely, but His […]

  • The Laws of God – 5 – Honor Your Father and Mother

    The Laws of God – 5 – Honor Your Father and Mother

    What does it mean to honor your father and mother? If you have broken his law, then you also need Christ to wash you. Also, how does someone honor their parents if their family is Hindu or Muslim and they want to leave their false religion to follow Christ? The main bible verse is Exodus 20:12: “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.”

  • The Laws of God – 4 – Rest

    The Laws of God – 4 – Rest

    The Jews observe the Sabbath on Saturday as a binding law of no work and solemn assembly. It was punishable even by death to break the Sabbath. Christians worship on Sunday in most countries today. Yet according to the New Testament the spiritual and deeper meaning of this law is not about days of the week, but about the teaching of rest and grace. Believers observe the Sabbath (which means ‘rest’) by resting in Christ from their ‘works’. It is […]
