Today we are asking each other as fellow sisters and brothers in Christ, why don’t more of us share the Good News more often? Is it because: A. We are ashamed of the Gospel? B. Don’t care about the eternal destinations of the lost? C. Don’t know the Gospel well enough to share with others? […]

The New Order

We seem to be waking up to the fact that there is a “new order.” That things are markedly different in our nation than they were even 30 or 50 years ago. As those who follow Jesus and who claim Him as our God and Redeemer, we need to look at this from a biblical […]

Wishing All of Us a “Disturbing Christmas”

Well here we are on December 21, 2012—and the earth has not been destroyed.  Sadly millions around the world are relieved because they put credence into the “Mayan Calendar” hype.  But life goes on and God is still on his throne.  And our duties as Christians remain the same.

When the world demands compromise

One of the toughest places for a Christian to be in our post-modern world is on the fence.  When the world pressures us to give an account for why we believe the way way do, or why we take a stand on the issues we do, the temptation for many is to  attempt to appeal […]

Prepared for chaos?

In these times we find ourselves in, even the secularists know that something is “up.” Economists are warning us to get ready for a complete collapse–that it’s not a matter of if, but when our economy goes belly up.
