What Is the Flesh in the Bible?

The Bible mentions the flesh throughout the Old and New Testaments. But although Christians are clear about what sin is, many haven’t heard much about their flesh. Unfortunately, Satan’s obscuring of the truth about the flesh over the years has allowed him to damage many of God’s people. What is the flesh, and why is it so bad? Is it still bad now that we’re saved? Does our flesh get better the...

A Question about the Unforgivable Sin

We received the comment and questions below from someone who read our post, “Can You Lose Your Salvation?”: “I am so glad that I was able to find this article. I know that God’s decisions cannot be changed and that He holds us in His hands. Yet I still feel insecure about my salvation. Can you please answer these questions: Is the unforgivable sin not accepting Jesus as Savior? Can a Christian...

Experiencing the Precious Blood of Christ in Our Christian Life Today [with video]

As Christians, we realize that Jesus shed His blood for the forgiveness of our sins and that because of this we can receive Him and be saved from eternal perdition. But once we’re born again, what is our relationship with Christ’s blood? What does the blood of Christ mean to us right now, today, in our Christian lives? Take a look at the short video below to find out three applications of the...

What Is the Conscience?

Today it’s common to hear about people being “socially conscious” or having a “social conscience.” We hear about the need for corporations to be socially conscious, meaning they should care for the environment and natural resources, or help the less fortunate with business profits. We also hear about famous people who go to help in other countries; they are admired and said to have a social...

3 Problems That Can Only Be Solved by the Blood of Jesus

In previous posts we discussed that as believers in Jesus Christ we can be fully assured that we’re really saved and that we can never lose our salvation—it’s eternally secure. But since we can’t lose our salvation, some might have this question: “Does that mean it doesn’t matter how we live after we’re saved? Are we free to do whatever we want? After all, nothing can change my salvation.” But...

What Really Happened in the Garden of Eden—the Consequences of Adam and Eve’s Choice

In a previous post, we saw that God warned Adam and Eve not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in order to protect them. That tree represented Satan, the enemy of God and the source of death. Sadly, Adam and Eve disobeyed God. This disobedience was serious enough, but by eating the fruit of that tree they were also corrupted with Satan’s evil nature. In this post, we’ll see the...

What Really Happened in the Garden of Eden?

Most of us are familiar with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. The disobedience of Adam and Eve is usually what gets our attention in this story, and this makes sense. Disobeying God is a serious matter. But have you ever wondered what was so bad about eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil? How could doing that lead to the fall of all mankind? And when God...

Why We Need to Confess Our Sins and How to Do It

As believers we’re saved eternally, and God desires that we, as believers, would not sin. We can see this in the story of the Lord Jesus and the adulterous woman in John 8. Jesus, as the only One without sin, the only One who can forgive sin, and the only One qualified to condemn sin, did not condemn this woman. But, the Savior’s last words to her were this: “Go, and from now on sin no more.” As...

The Difference between Sin and Sins and God’s Provision for Both

Since believing in the Lord Jesus and receiving His life, have you tried very hard to live a sinless life, only to be disappointed? The harder you try, the less you succeed. Perhaps you’ve even doubted your salvation altogether, or thought you lost it. Rest assured: once you’re saved, you’re saved eternally. Yet a question may still loom in your mind, “If I’m a Christian, why can’t I stop sinning...
