11/11/21 – Obedience Is Faith (Article)

If I were to ask you, “How do you obey God?“ You would probably say “Well, by doing whatever God says to do.“ And you would be correct. More specifically, if God gives a law and you perform that law, that is biblical obedience. 

Hopefully you are the kind of person that just wants to know what scripture says, even if you’ve never heard it before, because I’m fairly certain you’ve never heard what we are about to tell you.

9/6/21 – ‘Taking Up Your Cross’ Has Nothing To Do With Suffering (Article)

I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times: “Everyone has their cross to bear.” That phrase is almost universally used for some kind of suffering. “Taking up your cross” is also constantly interpreted in the church as “dying to self” or “bringing your flesh into submission.” Where is that interpretation in the Bible? Your guess is as good as mine. “Taking up your cross” is actually referring to rest from your works and your salvation.

8/24/21 – There Are No Rewards In Heaven (For Your Good Deeds) (Article)

Unfortunately, it is almost common knowledge in the church that when we get to Heaven or when Jesus comes back again, we will all be rewarded for our actions.

7/9/21 – You Can’t Receive What Jesus Didn’t Provide (Article)

At Reform Church, we teach what the Bible teaches regarding death and eternal life. Jesus came to redeem us from physical death (that’s why He died physically) and Jesus came to give us eternal life (which is in us) that is meant to be given to our mortal bodies (Romans 8:11) to cause our bodies to live forever.

3/13/21 – You Are Not A Hypocrite… (Article)

Ever been to church and heard the word “hypocrite“ used before? It’s a pretty common word we use in the church for people that don’t practice what they preach. If we see a preacher caught doing something wrong, lots of people would call him a hypocrite. And likewise, when a preacher sees sin prevalent in the church, he might look at that and call that hypocrisy.
