The conscience can be described as a courtroom within the heart. It judges our behavior as to whether or not it is in accordance with the law. This internal judge does not make law but rather upholds the law within our mind. Not all consciences are fully prepared to do this reliably and some are severely damaged so that they do not function as God designed them. Can we trust our conscience to guide us in matters of religion? If our conscience approves our behavior does that make it right in the sight of God? Should we “follow our heart” in spiritual matters? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we ask Is Conscience A Good Guide?
Baptism is an act of submission and obedience by the believer but is it necessary to salvation? Another way to ask this important question: Are we saved from sin before or when we are baptized? In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we turn to the scriptures for the answer.
The Holy Spirit of God was sent, as promised, to the apostles on the first Pentecost after the resurrection of Christ. He was to guide them into all truth; remind them of all that Jesus said on earth, and bear witness to the authenticity and authority of the words they spake. People are saved by the gospel because of the Holy Spirit’s influence upon their heart. This begs the question though, HOW does the Holy Spirit exert this influence upon the mind? What is the means or medium through which the Spirit of God reproves the world of sin and points us to righteousness? Is it a direct operation performed upon the heart or does He work through a means to accomplish this? In this broadcast of Let The Bible Speak, we look at The Spirit and Salvation.

While children of God are to grow and mature, there are qualities of youth that we are to retain. In fact, the model citizen of the kingdom of God is, in some respects, a child. When some parents brought their children to Jesus on one occasion, the disciples wanted them to leave the Savior alone. Jesus, however, said, “Let the children come to me.” They became His example of one who would enter find and enter the kingdom that He would soon establish. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we see that we must be like them if we too would enter the kingdom.
