Many psychiatrists would agree that unresolved guilt has a huge impact upon a person’s ability to function. Heightened sensitivity may cause some people to exhibit aggressive behaviour, while others are crippled by anxiety and condemnation.

By Victor Hall
We find a very significant statement about ‘the end’ in the book of Genesis. The Scriptures record that the Lord made this statement in the days of Noah. We are told that the wickedness of man was great on the earth. The thoughts and intentions of every man’s heart were continually evil.

Instruction for Christian Living
As sons of God we need to be careful to observe the times in which we live. We are living in a world that is growing increasingly hostile to the knowledge of God. Times of great stress, lawlessness, and betrayal are coming upon the church and we will need to know how to endure until the end so that we will be saved.
