Christian Research Service (CRS) provides information, articles, and links we hope you will find beneficial to help you to be “on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:17-18).
While we strive to provide solid, Bible-based information, please use discernment as you read the materials. Although we have linked to certain articles, we may not necessarily agree with all of the content on a particular site. As such, we encourage you to test all things according to Scripture (1 Thessalonians 5:21), and be as the “noble-minded” Bereans in Acts 17:11, whose example we encourage all our readers to follow.

Please remember that all Christians are under the Scriptural commands to “test” all things and “try” the spirits by God’s written Word (1 Thessalonians 5:21; 1 John 4:1). First and foremost, read and study the Bible on a daily basis, and always use the Bible as your go-to source and final authority.
For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God. Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood. I know that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them. Therefore be on the alert, remembering that night and day for a period of three years I did not cease to admonish each one with tears (Apostle Paul, Acts 20:27-31).
May the Lord bless you in your search for truth.
