In times like these, the call for Christians to take light and truth to politics has never been more urgent. “Should Christians Be Involved In Politics?” is a roadmap for those ready to answer that call.


Oftentimes on the Hill we refer to someone as a “good person.” That compliment is nice to say concerning a colleague, keeping in the back of our minds of course, that everyone is fallen and possesses a sinful nature. If we use that term to describe another person as does Solomon in the book of Proverbs, what specifically does the wisest man say should characterize a “good person”? Let us discover this week all that Solomon has to say about this admirable adjective and make application to our own life.As we study, be thinking of at least one aspect of your life God wants to remove and another (from His book) that He wants you to add to your life.

This week, in honor of Mother's Day, Ralph and Frank talk through our most downloaded Bible study!Only through the power and timing of the indwelling Holy Spirit can any of us, male or female, attain Christlikeness. In theological language, progressive sanctification. So rather than look at these forthcoming passages as a legalistic measuring stick demanding immediate performance, view this study as a tool God can use in His own way and timing to help mature you in Christ, bringing you into a more intimate, personal relationship in which these virtues are borne and honed.

Genesis is foundational to a biblical worldview. Know the passages that follow, recognize their connection and integration, and allow that knowledge to guide and convict your thinking and actions.

In today’s out-of-control competitive, combative environment of public elections, it is almost guaranteed that many false things will be said about you. How do you handle such things?Forgiveness can be a difficult discipline to practice but is an indispensable character quality that must be continually cultivated over a lifetime. Let’s examine what the Scriptures teach about this.

In Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount He states, “You are the salt of the earth; … You are the light of the world.” (Matthew 5:13–14). Often, well-meaning believers invoke this passage as a means of encouragement and prodding others to step up to the plate and affect the world. In this study, I desire to provide you with a greater understanding of the Greek verb that Jesus uses.“You are” is not an imperative command; it is an indicative verb. This distinction is very important and necessary to make as we seek to better understand what the Bible means. Such precision leads to proper, God-glorifying application to one’s life.  My prayer is that the meaning of this passage will become increasingly clear as you study what follows.

Your leadership at Easter represents a sacred time to inure, assure, and confer with your family. Don’t miss these special opportunities!

A public servant can learn much about debating skills from this week’s Bible passage. As I strive to serve you and make the Scriptures practical and applicable, I am constantly praying and thinking about your life in elected office and what is most pertinent in the passage relative to that, being careful to not sacrifice authorial intent. This week I cannot help but observe how the desperation of Jesus’ enemies impelled them to publicly discount the Lord’s credibility. Sound familiar? The failure of Jesus’ foes to win debates in previous encounters has so frustrated and infuriated them that they, in this week’s passage, become absurd in their attacks. Imagine that! Let us critically examine this and the previous passages relative to Jesus’ debating skills and see what we can learn about improving ours. This promises to be a rich study—especially as you approach the primaries and upcoming November elections.

Studying this topic will help you to further grasp in a theological sense so great a salvation the believer possesses!
