Revolutionize Your Spiritual Life

The church is not immune to movements, trends, programs, and people latching on to the latest study that’s supposed to transform our lives. Each of these movements or trends is supposed to be that thing we’ve been missing; that thing that will take us over the top spiritually speaking.

Saved by Grace?

"God wants one thing, and only one thing, from us. He wants us to believe in him. He wants us to believe that out of love, through his bodily sacrifice, he paid the eternal price for the sins of each and every one of us. Believing that is what gets us saved; that is what triggers to life the life of Christ within us."

Why Christians Don’t Want Government Defining Marriage

The issue of marriage with particular reference to a constitutional amendment banning homosexual marriage is dangerous for conservative Christians who disagree with the majority who are in favor of such an amendment. It’s dangerous in that one who is not in favor of banning homosexual marriage is considered to be in favor of homosexual marriage, liberal, and unbiblical, none of which is the case . . .

Who’s Afraid of a Woman President?

In light of Michele Bachmann’s candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination, some are wondering how consistent it is for Christians to elect a woman to national office when they wouldn’t vote for her to serve as pastor of a local church.
