Matthew 25:41. The parable of the sheep and the goats illustrates that there will be a Judgment Day where unrepentant sinners, the goats, will be eternally separated from God. Jesus tells us this parable to make it clear that there are consequences to not being followers of Christ, the sheep. The parable makes it clear that all of mankind will face one of two judgements.
Genesis 3:24. One of the reasons that God drove Adam and Eve out of the garden of Eden was to deny them eternal life. The tree of life in the garden of Eden offered Adam and Eve the opportunity for eternal life. Now that they were in sin from eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, God would not allow them access to eternal life.
Luke 16:2. Within Christianity the word “stewardship” can have a broad meaning pertaining to a full range of topics from financial management to the giving of tithes and offerings. The question is what is stewardship.
Nehemiah 2:20. The faithful will always achieve success through God. God desires to bless all of us. In the Bible are recorded hundreds and hundreds of God's promises to bless us. All we need to do is have faith in His promises.
Many Christians can get caught up in religious routines such as going to church, giving to the poor, using religious sayings, and so on. These good works can start to substitute for our faith in God. It is not our good works that keep us in relationship with God. It is our continuing faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord that enables us to have continuing grace with God.
Joshua 7:12. When you defy God and go your own way with your insatiable desires, you lose your blessings from God. This is what happen when Achan took the accursed things out of Jericho.
Joshua 7:1. When Israel had taken Jericho and Achan acted on his insatiable desire and took the gold and silver from Jericho, God's anger was raised against the entire camp of Israel. When Achan could not control his insatiable desire, he offended God.
Isaiah 59:2. God cannot be in the presence of sin. A key Christian aspect of the definition of deception is that it is a sin. Deception is no more than a lie. It hides the truth. When we deceive people, God separates Himself from us. He will neither show His face nor listen to us when we are spreading deception.
Deuteronomy 22:22. The basic definition of adultery is from Deuteronomy 22:22. Adultery is “…lying with a woman married to an husband…” Adultery is any time a married person has sex with someone outside the marriage. God considers adultery a sin and it is one of the ten commandments (Exodus 20:14, “Thou shalt not commit adultery”).
