By Michael A. Hildreth Introduction: Ephesians Chapter Four is all about unity. There are seven “ones” mentioned by Apostle Paul. These “ones” bind us together in faith. We share a relationship with one another and with the Lord because we adhere to these “ones”. However, we see a plurality in each of them. “One body”… Read More The One Baptism Which Puts Us All Into the Kingdom (Eph. 4:5)
By Michael A. Hildreth We know it is impossible to exclude Holy Spirit baptism from being the “one baptism” of Ephesians 4:5 because it was clearly in operation when Paul wrote the passage. We have further looked at the greatness of Christ’s coming baptism of Holy Spirit, in contrast to John’s baptism into water alone,… Read More There Is Still One Baptism (Part 3 of 3)

By Michael Hildreth The denouncement of Atheism within God’s word is an amazing testament to the divine inspiration of the Bible.

They level an accusation against Christ’s disciples for believing “false… Read More The Restoration of God’s Kingdom: Part 2 — One Nation

I will explain why this was a natural inquiry for them to make and they were in no way misguided in their thinking.
