Let me see if I have this right. You Christians believe that the Son of God suffered and died on a cross 2000 years ago...and that somehow, this helps you get connected to your God. Yep. That's right. That is the teaching of the Bible. And yes....it is utter foolishness to the natural way of thinking about God. And by the way....He is not just our God....He is the true God, the One and only.57 comments
A state judge in Oklahoma this week blocked enforcement of a law that would have required doctors to give a woman an ultrasound and describe the unborn baby to her in detail before performing an abortion.17 comments
Richard Dawkins has done it again. And this time he has really placed atheists in a pickle. Do they follow the abusive admonition of one of their idols, and thereby reject reason; or do they continue to teach their children that bullying is wrong? Something has got to give here. With mentors like Dawkins, it's getting tougher and tougher in America for atheists to maintain a consistency between their doctrine and their practice.
Your church building may have a denominational name on it. Your mouth might speak often of your own particular denomination. And the majority of your friends may all belong to your denomination. But I'll tell this much....there is no denominational label imprinted on your soul....and there will be no denominations in heaven.40 comments
Are you sick and tired of being defeated by the same sin in your life over and over again? If so, have you started fighting back like a boxer in the ring? Or are you taking a passive approach while sin and Satan just pummel you with body blows and head shots? My friend, it is well past time to start fighting back in the power of God.13 comments
What do you get when a television network attempts to make a mockery of Jesus Christ, Christianity, and Christians in general? You get a pitiful excuse for "entertainment" and one that is doomed to fail. The latest example of such blasphemy is the ABC show, "GCB."11 comments
The annual party pilgrimage to Florida is taking place once again. "March Madness" involves more than just basketball. Thousands of college students are caught up in the madness of wild parties which have become the feature attraction of "Spring Break." Interestingly, other college students have chosen a different path by using their school break to serve the poor and to spread the message of the Gospel. Different strokes for different folks.9 comments
Perhaps you or someone you know is always losing the battle with an addiction. It might be alcohol or drugs. It could be pornography or gambling. Whatever the addiction, there is a path that leads to victory and freedom. God wants you and your loved ones to be free from any destructive obsessions. Sin no longer has to have the upper hand in your life.6 comments
Our clocks have now been moved forward by one hour. Most of them anyway. We have gained an hour of daylight. At the same time, we continue to lose days and years as they keep getting gobbled up by "Father Time."5 comments
Some people are convinced God caused the recent tornadoes. I don't share that conviction. God certainly is sovereign, but that doesn't mean He is the cause of everything that happens.45 comments
Someone recently expressed this fear to me: "I feel like I am going to die an early death because of things I did years ago." Although a believer, she felt like God is going to punish her for the sins of her past. She was struggling with a "spirit of condemnation."8 comments
A lot of Democrats and Republicans also seem uneasy with outspoken Christians among their ranks. How crazy is that? After all that the Bible and Jesus Christ have meant to the freedom of our nation!42 comments
The National Enquirer is being criticized by some people for publishing a photo of Whitney Houston's dead body. But was it really Whitney?
The season of Lent is once again at hand. It is observed by many Christians and receives special attention in Lutheran and Catholic circles. Traditions can often serve a good purpose in our spiritual lives. At the same time, they can also become entrenched in such a way that we are no longer able to view them objectively.23 comments
Our nation attended church on Saturday at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, New Jersey, when Whitney Houston's nearly four-hour funeral service was broadcast on national television. Many of those who witnessed it were incredibly touched by the testimonies, the singing and the preaching. The highlight for me and for others was when members of the Winans family sang "Tomorrow."9 comments
