Is globalization good? Well, yes and no. I am not going to deal with geo-politics in this blog necessarily, but the spiritual warfare reality behind globalization. Tragically, many Christians are reading their Bibles and living their life with more of a worldly worldview than a biblical worldview. The Bible from beginning to end can only […]

Be Careful When You Say: Always or Never

God has a sense of humor. How do I know? Because it seems like every time I carelessly use the words “always” or “never” I end up eating my words. I told my grandmother for years I would “never” drink coffee. She put a twenty-dollar bill in her journal that I would. I am a […]

Hope & Healing for Marriage

There is a wrong view of marriage in our society today, and it has slowly crept into the church as well. Marriage is not an institution of man. It originated with God and was approved by our Lord Jesus. A proper vision for marriage consists primarily of two things: Covenant and Consummation. The Covenant is […]

I hope this season finds you more amazed and more in love with Jesus then ever before as God’s family all around the world prepares to gather on Resurrection Sunday proclaiming, “He is risen. He is risen indeed!” But for some, doubt and skepticism and unbelief define their attitude toward Jesus and His resurrection. Christian […]

How are you thinking about everything that is going on currently in our world? Is your thinking formed by your political commitments and your news channel of choice or is your thinking formed by your theology? It is imperative as followers of Jesus that our thinking is first and foremost formed by the Word of […]

, , , ,
What Would Jesus Do? This important question became the WWJD campaign of the 1990s. Wrist bands and a massive product line promoted this campaign across America as believers were encouraged in the midst of everyday situations to stop and ask this question before they responded.

Tolerance is one of many words that our culture has redefined. There is a fog over the definition and application of this word. The basic definition found in the dictionary is: acceptance of different views, tolerating of somebody or something and allowing for deviation.

Orphans are ignorant of their history.  They do not know where they have come from or who they are.  So, orphans run not knowing their history and not able to lay hold of their inheritance.  We are all born with an orphan spirit in search of who we are and where we are going.  God […]
