Today’s thought “A serious warning for teachers” (December 09)

Did you notice that James 3 begins with a pretty serious warning, telling that teachers will incur a stricter judgment.

Today’s thought “How have I burdened you?” (December 08)

Today’s thought “Nourished in the words of the faith not falling away from the faith” (November 22)

We should remember that the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that not always people shall be willing to follow the right teachings of Christ Jesus and that in the last times some in the church will turn away from Christ and become eager followers of teachers with “devil-inspired ideas”. These teachers will tell lies with… Read More Today’s thought “Nourished in the words of the faith not falling away from the faith” (November 22)

Witness   Written By Paul Zilmer As they’d agreed, they meet while it’s still dark. A few of them have brought what spices they’ve been able to locate.

Today’s thought “They would not believe it” (August 21)

Today we finished reading the Gospel of Mark. One needs to compare all the Gospels to appreciate the events after Christ rose from the dead.

Today’s thought “Fear-of-God, also in times of war, is a school in skilled living” (April 05)

In these days, when we get to see horrible pictures of war crimes, we see enough proof of how man has gone far away from the precepts or prescriptions of God.

Today’s thought “Darker days, presents and Love for others” (December 13)

Yesterday we mentioned the difficulties that we, Christadelphians, but also the Jeshuaists and Jews may experience in Belgium and France, and how we must always respond positively to that resistance. We must, above all, avoid the negativeness towards us through our positive, loving attitude.
