Books by Stan Gale
John’s first epistle is indeed a love letter.
If sinlessness is a hallmark of assurance of salvation, then it is self-evident we fail the test.
How do we know those who are children of God and those who are of their father, the devil?
Are we sinful or sinless? The answer is both.
As children of God we are distinguished from the world, and it all has to do with the saving knowledge of God that sets us apart for Him both in status and state of being.
My devotional on the epistle of James was just released by Reformation Heritage Books. Below is the last of the 47 devotions that take us through the letter. James closes on a note both somber and hopeful, reminding us that truth matters.
What is the anointing that we as Christians receive from God?
Abiding in Christ is essential for Christian life and living.
John addresses believers as truth-holders.
Those who are antichrists make it their business to lead people astray.
Why does John speak so negatively of the world?
