Gospel Assurance and Warnings

Gospel Assurance and Warnings

by Paul Washer

It should come as no surprise that misunderstandings about the gospel message and the nature of true conversion result in a problem with genuine assurance of salvation.

Contentment, Prosperity, and God's Glory

Contentment, Prosperity, and God's Glory

by Jeremiah Burroughs

Why is it difficult to be content when you have so much? On the surface, it seems unnecessary to instruct someone to be content in times of prosperity. However, times of prosperity and abundance provide some of the strongest temptations to pull our hearts away from God. Jeremiah Burroughs was keenly aware that the riches of this world comp… Read more…

Finally Alive: What Happens When We Are Born Again

Finally Alive: What Happens When We Are Born Again

When Jesus said to Nicodemus, 'You must be born again', the devout and learned religious leader was unsure what Jesus meant. It would seem nothing has changed.
