What is a surefire way to know if somebody is a liar? We are working our way through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, the early part at least, looking at those six times that the Lord said, “You have heard it was said, but I say to you,” and He’s not, of course, going to contradict Himself or contradict the law of Moses, which He gave, even though some people seem to think that.

Little Lessons with David Servant

Read the transcript of this video below.

Is it wrong to make a vow or an oath? We’re working our way through the early part of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, and currently in chapter five, we’re asking a question. When Jesus six times said, “You have heard, but I say to you,” was He, as some folks say, raising the standard under the New Covenant and now expecting something out of His New Covenant followers that God never expected of anybody under the Law of Moses or prior to the Law of Moses?

Read the transcript of this video below.

Is it the fault of women for men lusting? We’re going to step out into a little scary territory here, because this is a topic that is culturally sensitive. I should say that there’s debate within many circles on this very topic, because there’s this kind of movement among some women who are saying, “well, we should be able to wear whatever we want, and if men can go without their shirts on in public, why can’t we women do that? And, it’s not our fault that men can’t control themselves, it’s their problem, and so let them deal with it, we’re going to dress the way we want to dress.”

The Coming Holocaust in Israel (and America, and Europe, and…)

By David Servant

Although not a popular subject, most Christians who lean towards a literal interpretation of the Bible’s prophetic passages believe that Scripture foretells of an unprecedented, worldwide tribulation, one that will immediately precede Christ’s return.

For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short (Matt. 24:21-22).
