Some may describe Christianity to be a faith derived from Christ. Others say believing and living in Christ. These are all true but to understand the Christian faith clearly, we need to know who Christians are. Christians bore the name ''Christians'' in Antioch because they were believed to be a group of people who fed on blood and flesh.
Today, it is not surprising how many pastors and Prophets are falling . Below are some of the reasons why some Pastors and Prophets fall. 1. Churches Are Becoming Complex Enterprises Which Pastors Are Not Equipped To lead. The typical seminary training one receives to be a pastor usually touches on the practical things needed to oversee a church in the twenty-first century. Learning theology and how to exegete Scripture is not enough. Pastors have perhaps the toughest job in the nation. 2. Tension Between Spiritual
The name Christian is not borne out of accident but it’s of a divine arrangement and establishment. The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch because the life of Christ was clearly reflecting in them; in character, words and all actions of theirs (Acts 11:26). Becoming a Christian or child of God, is actually a great privilege of taking upon oneself the divine nature of God; a work which is done spiritually on behalf of the believer by the Spirit of God.

WHY KING JAMES BIBLE ONLY? —— Bible Challenge: (1.) Compare the KJV with another perversions (2.) In what ways do these perversions differ? (3.) Share your findings in the comment below —— 1.) THE TWO CITIES Dr. Jack Moorman, who spent many years in researching the question of Bible versions, has stated that the transmission of the Greek text of the New Testament is essentially a "tale of two cities", viz., Antioch and Alexandria.

LESSON ONE: The gospel of Luke was written by a Greek citizen who resided at Antioch. The writer was a Physician or medical doctor by profession. What makes Luke account of the gospel more interesting is that the author of the gospel of Luke was a gentile convert (Christian). He became converted through one of the Apostle Paul's teaching at the Greek city of Antioch. He was neither one of the Apostles nor disciples of Jesus Christ. He was not a witness to the life or death of Jesus Christ. He only became a
I wonder how many of us today who call ourselves "Christians" really understand what really goes into being a Christian. It is sad that many just enjoy being identified on forms they fill as Christians, whiles others just parade themselves as Christians but do not live as one. At Antioch the apostles were called Christians because they walked and lived like Christ. Can same be said of you today? Being a Christian is a full-time job. Is not something you decide to go into and have it as a part-time business.
It is safe to say that you are prepared for biblical service? God's first missional group went up against wizards in prophetic mask in the Book of Acts. How about we get propelled by their biblical way of life. Barnabas, Saul and John Mark confronted bogus prophets, satanic watchmen and regional resistance to their service. Barnabas and Saul entered the missional measurement when sent from the nearby church in Antioch around 45 AD. John Mark likewise went with them as a collaborator. "Furthermore, when they
What is Christianity all about? Who are Christians? And how can you identify a Christian in the world today? The above questions are important questions that every Christian needs to answer for himself. I am prompted to write this opinion piece due to the way and manner at which Christians have derailed from the main focus of Christianity and conforming to the world. In other to have things favor you, you now coin what is wrong to be what is right so you can flourish in it. It is rather sad how many
Scripture: Acts 11:26 And when he had found him ,he brought him unto Antioch,and it came to pass ,that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church and taught much people .And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. People of God ,Please permit me to say this ,there's difference between a Christian and a Church goer . In this era many people have this perception that when you go to church automatically you are Christian. No please!!! You can go to church and not being a Christian.
