For many years, my favorite Bible study software has been SwordSearcher.
When I read the Bible, I like to have an actual book in front of me. When I preach, I preach from the book.
However, when I study the Bible, I have found the SwordSearcher program to be the single most useful tool I have ever used. SwordSearcher is the tool for any serious Bible-believing Bible student.
When it's time to prepare a sermon, I nearly always have SwordSearcher open on my computer next to my Bible. It allows me to instantly look up related verses and commentaries. What used to take me 20-30 minutes (finding related verses and pulling commentaries off the shelf) now takes just a few seconds, which means more time for actual study and less time spent finding books and flipping through pages.

Many ancient texts, including the Bible, refer to giant humans living among us during times past.
The Bible, for example, speaks of King Og, of the infamous Goliath, and of the occupants of parts of Palestine at the time of the Hebrew Exodus.
For years, mainstream anthropologists and archaeologists have dismissed these accounts as myth. But, as with so many other assertions of the Bible, evidence has emerged that the biblical accounts of giants are cold, hard facts.

A new web site has been launched:
This project was born out of what I can only describe as grief at the departure from the church by somebody who got mixed up in some bizarre, modernist doctrines. This person is loved and missed very much by the church, but today apparently remains unrepentant toward those teachings they dug up in Youtube videos. I hope that by exposing a number of false modernist doctrines — not just what this person was involved in — and debunking them using the Bible, I can help another pastor and another church avoid what our family has been through.

Charlie Peace was a criminal in the 1800’s in England. He was a thief and a murderer, but eventually the law caught up with him, and he was condemned to death.
On his last morning in Armley Jail, Leeds, England, he was taken on the death-walk from the prison cell to the gallows. Before him went the prison chaplain, routinely and unemotionally reading some Bible verses.
The criminal touched the preacher and asked what he was reading. “The Consolations of Religion,” was the reply.

How many times have you heard someone gasp, “Oh! But, we’re not supposed to judge people!”
And, they point to Matthew 7:1 to justify their statement.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
This is a favorite passage of worldly Christians who want to pretend that their sin is their sin and doesn’t effect anyone else.
