Phillips’ Modern English

That Reference This Scripture

  1. Be Perfect; The End Time Men - W.W. Fischer We all are attain to the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ’s own perfection, the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ and the completeness found in Him.

  2. My Son, My Son; Twisted Scriptures - Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) The “spiritual fathering” teachers, from Paul and Peter calling Timothy, Titus, Onesimus and Mark their “sons,” have concocted a teaching that says that all men must have a “spiritual father” and any one who does not have one is an orphan who is destitute of any real place in the order and family of God. Is this the truth?

  3. 3. Organization: Necessary and Dangerous (Part 2); The “Church” Paradigm (a la Tozer) - Neil Girrard Parasitical organizations attached to the work of God is precisely what Jesus predicted.

  4. Our Duty - Neil Girrard A word study on strife and striving that reveals what God expects of us - contains some surprising answers!

  5. Our Threefold Enemy - Neil Girrard Those who would have us fight only the flesh leave us blind to our defenses against the demonic and the world and to the offensive weapons God has given us that we might obtain His objectives.

  6. Perfection; The End Time Men - W.W. Fischer The comment - “Well, nobody’s perfect” - usually exposes the shallowness of the speaker’s dedication to Almighty God.

  7. Praying Through - Neil Girrard Prayer is still a primary necessity in the Christian’s life - just as it was in Paul’s life.

  8. 5. Sin - the Work of the Flesh; The Sons of the Devil - Neil Girrard The works of the flesh are evident – and abounding – and they keep us out of God’s kingdom!

  9. Universal Prayer; War On the Saints - Jesse Penn-Lewis If the prayer-warrior prays for the universal, without first having dealt with personal and local needs, the enemy will touch these smaller spheres, and thus by the force of personal and local attack, draw the believer down from the universal outlook.
