“The End Is Near”

7 The end of all things is at hand; therefore, be of sound thinking and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.

8 Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because LOVE COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS.

9 Be hospitable to one another without grumbling.

10 As each one has received a gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God,

11 whoever speaks, as one speaking the oracles of God; whoever serves, as one serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and might forever and ever.  Amen.



“Humanists view death as a condition of life. In that all life forms participate in the endless recycling of matter, from non-living into the living and then, on death and decomposition, back into simpler compounds for re-use.”


“Their sensible and alert thinking is to be used for prayer, for entreating God to act and move in the time that still remains. The realization that God is bringing history to a close should provoke believers to depend on Him, and this dependence is manifested in prayer, for in prayer believers recognize that any good that occurs in the world is due to God’s grace.”  Dr. Thomas R. Schreiner


“We manifest our love for God by a fervent love for each other.”  Dr. R.C. Sproul


“If something does exist, logic gives formal, demonstrative proof of the existence of a self-existent being. It is logically impossible for a self-existent, eternal being not to be. We know that God exists not merely by a leap of faith or by evidence around us but by the sheer force of the logical necessity of it."  Dr. R.C. Sproul
