At Covenant Reformed, we believe that God’s Word is powerful, and that He revealed in it everything we need to know to live lives that glorify Him AND bring peace, joy and meaning to ourselves. Our Pastor, the Rev. Dr. Brian M. Abshire has spent his entire ministry studying the wonderful promises of God and how they apply to every day living. He has written extensively on a great number of issues that Christians often fail to understand or apply in their walk with God.
However, not everyone has the time, or the interest in reading long, complicated essays that explain or defend the applications of the Christian faith. In the below series of “brochures” we have attempted to identify some of the most common questions, problems and concerns Christians have brought to us, and then tried to provide a quick, one-page response with the relevant Biblical principles and how they apply.
If you want a more developed treatment of these issues, we encourage you to go to our Essays and Articles page where you will find tons of materials covering this same ground in detail.
However, if you just want a “down and dirty” outline of what the Bible says about these common concerns, then click on the links to the left. We are adding new topics each week so visit this page often to see what we have added.
Note – You will be able to find the articles on all of these topics in our main navigation.
