Jesus Christ is the Cornerstone

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Cornerstone! Familiar with that word? Chief Cornerstone! Sound familiar? It should to Bible students. That term refers only to Jesus Christ. He is the Chief Cornerstone. And just what does that term mean? It refers to the first stone that was placed as the foundation of a building. […]

The Godhead does not change

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

The statement that God does not change is recorded in Malachi 3:6, the last of the Old Testament books. In the New Testament, in Hebrews 13:8, we see that Jesus does not change—Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. In Hebrews 1:3, we also discover that Jesus […]

We must do our part to receive the benefits

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

While I do not want to be too repetitive, still, although I have covered some subjects in past articles, I do not remember in which articles such issues were covered; nor do I remember all of the details of the issues I dealt with in those articles; plus […]

God found a few good men to fulfill His plan

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Although there are still other variations of the foregoing idiotic speculations, there is only one plausible view of the subject at hand—Bible Truth about God’s involvement in the world’s affairs—what the Bible actually says about it. Remember, God created man to have dominion over all of the lower […]

Evolution is the biggest lie ever sold to humanity

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Before getting into those additional Scriptures about God’s use of human beings to do His deliverance projects on this planet, let us consider these alternatives suggested by outright sinners, as well as even by the members of some church denominations. […]

God is looking for human beings who will accept the awesome authority God has delegated

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

The primary point in these current lessons is to get across the biblical reality that God is not going to step down from His glorious throne to intervene in world problems, because He has already come down in the human form of Jesus Christ, and solved all human […]

God uses humans to execute his plan

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

We started publishing these weekly articles on Shoalsinsider a little under a year ago, to address this pointed question: “Where is God in all of the turmoil going on in the world?” “Why does God not come down from His throne in heaven, and do something about all […]

Religion has cheated us out of our stuff

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

In my lessons both here and elsewhere, I often make the point that religious tradition has robbed much of the church of our rich inheritance in Christ. If we are heirs of Abraham, God and Christ (Romans 8:17; Galatians 3:29; Hebrews 1:2), and according to Scripture that […]

WE ARE NOT UNDER THE LAW BUT UNDER GRACE

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

 

Christians are righteous, pure, holy, light, cleansed, sanctified, etc. because we are not under the Old Testament law, but under grace. Two totally opposite systems. Romans 6:14—Sin will not have dominion over you [Christians]: For [the simple reason that] you are not under the law, but […]

Be you holy in all manner of lifestyle

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Scripture says we believers are righteous, pure, holy, light, cleansed, sanctified! The opposite of those godly characteristics describes the devil’s spiritual offspring. 1 John 3:8-9—He who commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God was […]

What is God’s Character?

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

I invite you to think along with me about this righteousness subject. In John 8:44, Jesus said those whose spiritual father is the devil will carry out the will of their father the devil. He is a liar and murderer. And those religious people Christ was addressing proved […]

In Christ we are the very righteousness of God

 

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

We Christians are what God says we are, not what the world or religion says we are. Remember that piling up term I used in the previous article. Of course, the world basically discounts the modern church. But one reason the world does so is that, while […]

Preachers and teachers will be held accountable

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

In Ephesians 4:11-16, Paul revealed God’s established ministry system for the entirety of this church dispensation. That New Testament ministry pattern was meant to remain intact until Jesus returns. How do I know that? Well, for one thing, Jesus Christ does not lie, and He does not take […]

The watchmen were not watching

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Jesus, Paul and others made it clear that the world during this evil age will always be contrary to God and His Word—The entire Bible, and especially the Gospel message of what Jesus Christ did on the cross. And the devil’s attacks will not be confined […]

Every thought, word and action, will be taken into account

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

When we Christian believers stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ to be judged, based upon the way we have lived our lives in this evil age, by what universal standard will Christ judge us to determine our rewards or losses (Romans 14:10-12, 2 Corinthians 5:10-11)? How we […]

God is not affected by time

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

There is a reason for these articles—A God-approved reason—A Bible-based reason. For one thing, the church must come to realize that God is not affected by time. What unreasonable reasoning to think that God has gotten old and senile, and is no longer relevant in modern society. […]

God empowered the church with supernatural ability

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

God knowing that our archenemy (the devil) has supernatural power, which affects the natural negatively, He wisely empowered the church with supernatural ability that effectively destroys the evil effects of that evil power. The BIBLE PRINCIPLE:

Zechariah 4:6—This is the Word of the LORD to Zerubbabel [and to […]

Ron Craig: Wrong tracks go to wrong places

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Many modern church members claim to be Christians, but at the same time question many of the plain doctrines of the Bible. And that raises this question in my mind: On what do they base their Christianity? Outside the Bible Truths about what Jesus Christ purchased for […]

Ron Craig: Many claim Christianity is outdated

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

The calendar does not dominate my messages. The Lord shows me what to teach in my books, in our meetings and in these articles. So this week, this is what I was led to write. Many in our day claim Christianity is outdated. Since we live […]

Ron Craig: In All These Things We More Than Conquer

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

I have heard preacher after preacher pray to God to give them a strategy which will address and solve at least some of the social and other problems in their communities. Those preachers ought to use the strategy God has already given us—Preach the Word of […]
