World Violence And The Christian

Violence, Danger Zones, Self-Defense?

Violence has plagued the human race since the beginning when Cain rose up and murdered his brother (Gen. 4). It was a contributing factor in the judgment of water (Gen. 6:11).  Violence seems to be a consistent part of life where vicious and senseless killings regularly populate our news feed. What is at the core of the problem? Is it the kind of weapon or the heart?

"Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually" (Gen. 6:5).

What does the Bible have to say about this and how is the Christian to understand and live in a world filled with violence? This series also looks at some dangers to the Christian as he faces violence as well as a brief understanding of the role of government.

This is my most comprehensive study of violence from a Biblical perspective. My notes are provided for the first two lessons and the charts are in Adobe (pdf) to preserve their integrity.

"Overcome Evil with Good"

Two builders build houses. Two lives are lived. One falls in the storm while the other one stands. What is the difference?



"The Syro-Phoenician Woman"

An old exhortation needs to be fresh in our daily activities--continue in the faith!


How To Call On The Lord To Be Saved?

It is a phrase which is often stated but one that is unlikely explained. You must "call on the name of the Lord" to be saved. But what does it mean? How do we call on the name of the Lord today?


This command was also unclear to many of the Jews in the first century. The apostle Peter was preaching the gospel to thousands on the day of Pentecost wherein he quoted from the prophet Joel, "And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved" (Acts 2:21).

After he testified against their deeds and after he gave irrefutable proof that Jesus was the Christ, the people were pierced to the heart and asked a very important question, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?" (Acts 2:37). If they knew "how to call on the name of the Lord, they would not have asked, "what shall we do?"

The Plan of Salvation

Have you obeyed the gospel? Is the gospel to be obeyed and if so, what is required? We know the gospel is to be obeyed because Paul said of our Lord’s second coming,

“in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thess. 1:8).
