When you go to an optometrist you hope that he will tell you that you have 20/20 vision. This means that your vision is normal. Sometimes, however, our vision is less than normal and we need to have corrections made so that we can see better, usually in the form of glasses or contact lenses. However, there are many other diseases than can impair vision that need correcting.

Spiritually, we also need to be able to have 20/0 vision. Spiritually, there are "diseases" that can affect our having clear insight into how we live our lives. Jesus said that if the blind lead the blind, then both will fall into a ditch (Matt. 15:14). We do not want to be spiritually blind. Being spiritually blind is far worse than losing our natural vision. To avoid spiritual blindness we need several things. . . .

Digital Library

The Mt. Vernon Church of Christ is building a digital library to aid serious Bible students in their study.  When possible, we will be adding new volumes.  We are grateful to the many sources from which we draw these volumes for making these available.  We take no credit for them ourselves.  We do not necesarrily endorse everything in every volume.  We simply provide them as aids to Bible study.  This week:

Systematic Theology (III) - A. H. Strong

The Bible claims to be the divinely inspired Word of God. Is there any support for this affirmation?

Evidence for the inspiration of the Bible falls into two general categories. Some evidences are classified as external in nature, while others are viewed as internal.

For instance, artifacts from the field of archaeology that corroborate the historical statements of the Scriptures are external evidence.

An example would be the discovery of the Nabonidus cylinder, which demonstrated that Belshazzar (Dan. 5) was an actual Babylonian king and not a mythical character as some early critics contended (Wiseman, 1980, 1: 1 83 ).

On the other hand, certain proofs of biblical inspiration are internal in character. They are a part of the fabric of the book itself.

These are self-authenticating phenomena within the Bible that demonstrate it must have been orchestrated by a superintending Mind. One such evidence of inspiration is the incredible unity that is characteristic of the Bible. . . .

Golden Thought

Temptation is sure to ring your doorbell, but do not ask it to stay for dinner.


Present It Back To Him

I was given a great treasure,
The beautiful gift of time.
'Twas something I could'nt measure,
Because it wasn't really mine.

For time is just as fleeting,
As a vapor in the air
It appears for just a little while
And then's no longer there.

You cannot own a minute.
Or a day or month or hour.
You cannot own a lifetime,
It's not within your power.

Your life is given as a loan
You didn't get it free
Return it back unto the Lord
And then with usury

Redeem each moment of your life
Don't waste these precious gems
And when you stand before His Throne
Present it back to Him.
