Immediately after the reconstruction of Jerusalem’s wall, the people of Judah assembled in the square before the Water Gate to read the book of the law (Neh. 8:1). Without an open Bible, we can’t build anything of lasting value.
Young unbelievers mock the division in the Christian community. Since church-goers are hopelessly divided, why shouldn’t they conclude that the Lord’s teaching produces nothing but confusion?
Why do Christian parents insist on teaching their children to follow Jesus? Why don’t they leave their kids alone and let them make up their own minds about God and morality?
The false prophet Shemaiah encouraged the governor of Judah to protect himself from assassination by hiding in the temple sanctuary. But Nehemiah refused to compromise his deepest convictions. If he dishonored the Lord, he wasn’t doing God’s work.
In school evolution is presented as fact. But it isn’t. Evolution is a theory, a theory contradicted by the Bible (Gen. 1:1-31), scientific evidence, and common sense.
To his dismay, Nehemiah discovered that the Jewish nobles and officials were mistreating the poor (Neh. 5:1-13). This internal problem threatened Jerusalem’s reconstruction project. Neglecting the poor hurts the church too. https://www.orphanslifeline.org/
