What Does the Bible Say About Wine and Alcohol Abuse?
Series: What Does the Bible Say About.... Price: Free! Words: 20,860. Language: English. Published: November 25, 2012. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Life / Social Issues, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Theology / Ethics
Many religious people believe that the Bible forbids any use of alcoholic beverages. But this is a distortion of the Bible and of ancient history. Although the Bible does not forbid alcohol, it does mention the abuse of alcohol. It is a serious social problem, and this series of articles addresses alcoholism, how it is treated, how we can avoid it, and the special needs of women.
The Covenants and the Sabbath
Series: Old Testament Laws and Christians, Book 6. Price: Free! Words: 27,380. Language: English. Published: February 7, 2014 by Grace Communion International. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Theology / Ethics
In these articles, Paul Kroll examines whether the seventh-day Sabbath is a valid law for Christians. Since the only commands for the Sabbath are in the laws of Moses, he begins by exploring whether the Law of Moses has authority over Christians. It does not; Christians are to obey God based on the new covenant, not the old. Kroll then explores auxiliary questions about Genesis, Hebrews and Jesus.
What Does the Bible Say About War and Violence?
The Bible does not prohibit believers from using force to stop evil aggressors. Ralph Orr examines the biblical evidence that is sometimes used by pacifists. He has a detailed study of the Old Testament, the Sermon on the Mount, and other relevant texts.

Price: Free! Words: 91,700. Language: English. Published: December 15, 2013. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Theology / Ethics, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Theology / Apologetics
Examining the logic of ethical judgment, this book shows how our moral faculties may not be as wonderful as we think. While harshly criticizing Christianity in places, and even offering solid critiques of some of the traditional 'proofs' of God's existence, this book ultimately offers the modern reader an ancient but powerful way to understand the Christian faith.
My Catholic Morals!
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 48,700. Language: English. Published: September 2, 2015. Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Theology / Ethics, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Catholicism
Catholic morality is often seen in a negative way about “what I can’t do.” It’s true that Christ’s teachings on the moral life limit us from engaging in actions contrary to His will and contrary to our dignity. But morality is so much more than just a list of restrictions. Morality is also about living in freedom! It’s about living in the freedom that our Triune God has in store for us!

Categories: Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Biblical Commentary / Old Testament, Nonfiction » Religion & Spirituality » Christian Theology / Ethics
When Christians read the Old Testament, they are often puzzled. They find many laws that seem to be part of Christianity, and yet they also find many laws that no one obeys. Laws of sacrifice, rituals and civil laws are mixed together with laws that tell people how to get along with others. This series of Bible studies explores how a Christian can know which laws to keep.

The difficult teachings of the Apostle Paul are largely responsible for the multitude of varying Christian denominations extant today. Is the Law of Moses done away by Christ’s death, or is the law established by grace? Are we saved by faith without works, or is it the doers of the law that “shall be justified?” The answers to these questions lie at the very heart of Christian theology.
