Do you feel betrayed? Consider Joseph who was sold into slavery by his brothers. Years later he said this to them:
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives. (Gen 50:20)
Even though it was clear to Joseph that his own brothers wanted him harmed, he still spoke kindly when he had power over their lives:
So then, don’t be afraid. I will provide for you and your children. And he reassured them and spoke kindly to them. (Gen 50:21)
OBSERVATIONS: (a) Sometimes what appears to be a major calamity from hateful people could be God moving you to a different location and position for blessing and the sake of many. (b) Joseph was a prime example of a forgiving person. In Gen. 50:21 he could have easily had his brothers killed, but instead showed them kindness and mercy.

The dating world can be a spiritually treacherous place. Many do not know the right places to look for a spouse. As a Christian single, you are to be only interested in meeting other people who are living holy. Dating non-Christians may lead Christian singles to quickly go astray from the faith and plunge into darkness and spiritual death. Since not everyone who says, “Lord, Lord” will enter God’s kingdom (Mt. 7:21) it is a grave mistake to think Christian singles can safely meet other single Christians within their church and through fellow church members, even though such may be possible at times.

Most religious people don’t realize what holiness preaching is. With so many spiritual deceptions present in the world, it is sometimes difficult to separate the true believers from those who are workers of iniquity and ravenous wolves in sheep’s clothing. The semantic trickery used by many preachers and teachers enables them to easily mislead others in regards to their own flawed message regarding salvation, grace, sin, holiness, etc. The ones who do this make dangerous allowances for sin, but still want to be identified as teaching holiness! True holiness preaching is based on the Bible, which declares a consistent holiness message. Those who claim to be holiness preachers, citing any theology over a conditional security for the believer, are not genuine.
Dan Corner is a true holiness preacher who relies on the Bible as the final authority for his teaching (2 Tim. 3:16,17). His teachings are easily available for those who want Bible truth about what is right and wrong. To read Dan Corner’s teachings, go to Evangelical Outreach.
Are you a true Biblical evangelical? If you are, you agree with the one and only Biblical gospel. If not, you are not an evangelical. Furthermore, you would also not even be a true Christian! The true gospel, which centers around the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 15:1-4), is basic, but it is so important that all Christians are commanded to protect and spread it to others. The result of preaching the one and only gospel is salvation for the ones who receive it. An evangelical, therefore, believes and carries the message of salvation (the gospel) to others to help them find eternal life, which is in the Lord Jesus Christ.
