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, […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

CRAIG: The weapons of our warfare are not carnal 

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Let us consider the actual predicament of the human race. The creation of Adam and Eve was miraculous. From dirt to man, and from part of the man a woman. A spirit being, the devil (fallen Lucifer) lured those two into rebellion against God. Their rebellion sprang […]

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 […]

CRAIG: God was in Christ and Still Is!!!

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

You who have followed these articles consistently may remember how they started out. The first one was based on the question of where God is in all the turmoil in this fallen world. You will likely also remember the Bible answer to that question—Exactly where He said […]

Ron Craig: Clothe ourselves with HIS victory

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Before we get to the meat of today’s lesson, I need to ask a very important question. Why do human beings (even many Christians) automatically question the plain truths of many Bible passages? It is as though they are programmed to automatically take sides against God’s indisputable […]

Our old sinful nature has been rendered ineffective

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Forgiveness of sins, yes! But, much more than that! Change of nature—our nature! Theologians have thrown us a curve on that issue (plus a lot of other issues as well). I will deal with some of those other most important biblical issues later on. The amount […]

Old things have passed away

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

I am not going to get into a theological discussion, using deep theological terms, as most theologians and many church pastors often do. I am not out to impress you with how smart I am (ha, ha). One of the great needs of the modern church […]

Being born again, we are NOT who we used to be

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Since all of the benefits of the New Testament (God’s LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT) were invested in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, which has been SAFELY DEPOSITED in heaven (on the altar in the Holy of Holies—Hebrews 9:12), they cannot be altered in any way. […]

God’s written word is His last will and testament

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Last time I mentioned that God’s will is for our benefit. To receive, and enjoy, divine benefits, then, we must look into God’s will to find out what those benefits are. But, which Bible interpretation accurately expresses God’s will and its benefits for believers? Remember, I have […]

Walk by Faith not by Sight

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

We Christians walk by faith, not by sight. So said Paul in 2 Corinthians 5:7. Well, what did Paul mean by that? Let us break that passage down into its components. WE obviously refers to us believers; we who have been born again—Bonafide Christians, not mere […]

Craig: We too are the seed of Abraham

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Do you see yourself in God’s Word? Does it seem that the Bible is in one world and you are in another? Do you have a desire to experience the good stuff you read in that Book, but question if you have the right qualifications to gain […]

Craig: Bible interpretation has fragmented the church

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Bible interpretation has fragmented the church! Modern Christians are concerned about many modern problems, but questionable or contradictory interpretations seem not to be important to most of them. Please be not offended, but believers seem to walk around in a stupor. I have observed through the years […]

Ron Craig: Interpretation of God’s Word continued

Christian Author and Pastor Ron Craig

Most modern church members have evidently become accustomed to the universal practice of interpreting the Scriptures, and that with greatly varying interpretations; and have never thought about the fact that the Bible itself outright forbids such. Even I do not recall ever hearing anyone suggest, or […]
