Signs of Love

God is love is an expression frequently heard in the course of the Christian life. Some people will argue that God was love in the New Testament, but more like wrath in the Old Testament. But how can we reconcile this apparent change when we know that God is supposed to be immutable? In reality, …

Planning Ahead – Financially

Money is important in life. People frequently say that the Bible says more about money than it does any other topic, however, I have read the Bible many times and I cannot find evidence of that. If you have such evidence (real verses, not quotes from people) please send it along. I have seen some …

Resolve to Read the Word

Jesus is king, Lord of lords. We should attend church and preach the Gospel; we all know that we should always be telling all our friends about Jesus and inviting everyone to church and religious social events. The Bible says so, right? Maybe, or maybe not. According to Barna Research Group and American Bible, 81% …

Clean Out the Closet

As we approach the idea of sanctification, I am reminded of a fabulous little book that should be read by every Christian, every year: My Heart-Christ’s Home by Robert Boyd Munger.

Microwave Solutions to a Crock-Pot Problem

I was challenged with the question of Evangelism recently.  The person was frustrated about losing friends because of evangelizing and wanted some advice, so I told him that I would consider the question.  After all, Jesus did say that people will persecute us for following Him (John 15:18-23), but does that reflect our life or …

The Seven Snares of the Enemy – A Review

If you have lived the Christian life for any period of time, you know that that temptation can hit us suddenly and unexpectedly.  Some temptation is small, leading to sins but other temptation is powerful with the ability to tempt us into additive and destructive habits. Erwin Lutzer wrote a book full of insight about …
