No Payment Required

By Benjamin H. Liles

          Believe me when I say I know it's been a while since I've written anything on faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Yet, I want to quote two very different men who had seen the risen Lord Jesus. The first being John Mark, who wrote his gospel narrative we know as the Gospel of Mark, wrote, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many" (Mark 10:45, Berean Study).

Collision of Lies Book Review

By Benjamin H. Liles

          Warning - This book is about as dangerous as an amusement park thrill ride that you just keep wanting to get back on! Tom Threadgill hammers home a beautifully crafted suspense/mystery within the pages of Collision of Lies. While him and his wife live in Tennessee, the plot of the story is set in San Antonio. He is also a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), too.

In this article I will outline how we do that, but to quickly go over it, we're told in Hebrews 9:28, "the Messiah...will appear a second bring salvation to those who are waiting for him." Within scripture, especially in the New Testament, we see a people the Lord has carved out who belong to Him who endure and can endure according to the strength of the Lord and not on their own merits.
