I am Barabbas When we look at the crucifixion of Jesus, and the trial that led up to it, we see that Pilate did not really want to condemn Jesus. When the mob brought the Jesus to the governor, Pilate questioned Jesus. “And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers […]

PRINCIPLE IS THE MAN Principal and principle are homonyms. Homonyms are words that are pronounced alike but may or may not be spelled alike, at least that’s what Mrs. Wetzel my high school teacher said.

LIVING BENEATH It is often stated concerning Christians that we live beneath our privileges in the Lord. Of course this is true, as I am sure every Christian that is aware of the promises given unto us, will agree. Our position in the Lord entitles us to many wonderful things. The things of God are […]

I Corinthians 11:23-33 Notice in verse 24 He says “this do.” Jesus expects every Christian to observe the Lord’s Supper.
