      AUTHENTIC CHRISTIANITY

      by Noah Icenhour

        Today I have a very simple thought for you: Be an authentic, genuine, and real Christian.  In our teen class we have been studying the epistle of James. It is not very long, but it is very powerful. James is writing to those in the early church who were facing “various trials.” In the middle […]

It deals with the sort of issues and behaviors that are common to religious people of every era, and there is really no misunderstanding what James is telling his […]

          BIBLICAL CASE STUDIES OF THE PRINCIPLE OF SILENCE.

          by Noah Icenhour

            One of the core principles of the Restoration Movement and among churches of Christ is the principle of Silence. Simply put, if the Bible does not explicitly or implicitly authorize an action, then we choose to abstain from it. Thomas Campbell famously said, “Where the Scriptures speak, we speak; where the Scriptures are Silent, we […]

            LIGHT OF THE WORLD

            by Noah Icenhour

              When Jesus came to this earth, he certainly had his death in mind for his mission. But his life is much more than simply his death. I would not dare attempt to take away from the meaning of his death, but Scripture devotes the majority of the Gospels are devoted to his life. He said […]

              Blank Keys

              by Noah Icenhour

                S Noah Icenhour There was a man in a lying unconscious in an old small shed. He came to himself and realized where he was, but he had no idea how he got there with a weird feeling he has been there before. Immediately he saw a door and tried to open it. But there […]

                by Noah Icenhour

                  Part 2 This may seem like a odd topic to you, but it is an area that much has been written about. We started this series last week and will continue with it this week as well. What are the qualities you would expect to find in a book that claims to be from God? […]

                  SCIENCE AND THE BIBLE

                  by Noah Icenhour

                    Part 1 One of the many evidences for the inspiration of the Bible is scientific statements of the Bible. When thinking about the inspiration of the Bible we realize we are claiming that the Bible is from God. We received the Bible when men who were “moved” by the Holy Spirit wrote each individual book […]

                    IS HAND-CLAPPING DURING SINGING ACCEPTABLE WORSHIP?

                    by Noah Icenhour

                      The practice apparently has its origin in the youth-devotional phenomenon of a few years back, but now is gaining some mainline defense. It is argued that clapping as a rhythmic form of accompaniment to singing in Christian worship is not an “addition” to the singing (as is a mechanical instrument); it merely is an aid — comparable […]
