|A Fallen Church | Charles E. Orr||Church|
It is surpassing strange that one reformation does not profit by the downfall of the preceding ones.... The worldliness they could not once tolerate they are now themselves engaging in. Then the spiritual ones form another movement....

|Discerning the Lord’s Body | Harlan D. Sorrell, 2011||Church|
The essence of Christ's true body is directly related to spiritual status, and spiritual meat and drink. Let us now examine the Word of God and examine our own selves to see if we discern the Lord's body and if we are really a part of it.

|Musical Instruments and Worship | Archie Souder||Church|
This subject of music in the church is surely a spiritual subject. Now, dear reader, get your Bible out before you read any farther, as this question can only be answered by the Word of God. I am going to deal wholly with God's Word.

|Natural vs. Spiritual Relationships | Mark P. Spinks||Church|
The question naturally arises: What if there is a conflict between the natural (family) relationship and the spiritual relationship to God?... Our relationship to God is more important than anything else.

|The Travail of Zion | Beverly Carradine, 1910||Church|
Travail is one of the sharpest pains known in the physical realm.... [God] applies it to the church, and says that such a suffering, burden, and agonizing cry must come on His people, before sons and daughters are born unto Him.
