Is polygamy a sin

I have heard people argue that polygamy is not specifically listed as a sin in the Bible, and it should be allowed today because certain people in the Bible had multiple wives. What does the Bible really say about this subject?

Keeping the commandments

QUESTION:"Can we keep all of the commandments?"

On multiple occasions, when someone finds out that I teach that we should keep the commandments, they typically respond by saying that it is impossible to keep all of the commandments in the Bible. But is that true? Is it really impossible keep all of the commandments? What does the Bible say on this subject?

A conversation with the Black Israelites

I had an interesting conversation today with a group of people who call themselves the "Black Israelites" (I have also heard them referred to as the "Black Hebrews" or the "Black Jews").  I saw a group of  8 or 9 guys dressed in strange costumes, holding signs, and standing on the corner at a 7 Eleven near my neighborhood today. I knew by their costumes and the writing on their signs that they were the "Black Hebrew Israelites" that I have heard about online, and I thought this was a good opportunity to ask them a few questions about what they believe. It was an interesting conversation to say the least.

If I was the Devil

If I was the Devil, I would change the Bible by removing certain things. A little here... a little there... not so much that people will reject it, but just enough to fall short. Things like calling Jesus the "servant of God" instead of the "Son of God", and I would remove things that refer to the real reason for His coming like Matthew 18:11.

Is Lent Biblical?

Lent is a well known tradition among Catholics and various other denominations, but is this 40 day period of fasting Biblical? Also, is it a good thing to do? Lets examine both Scripture and History to find out where Lent comes from, and what purpose it serves, and I hope by doing this we can come to a conclusion about our own participation in such things.
