Church Inc.

  My friend attends a church that has four services and several thousand members. He recently got divorced and is trying to put his life back on track. About a couple of weeks ago he received an email from one of the elders on staff. This elder wanted him to come to a meeting and…

Tips on Personal Evangelism

In this article I wanted to share a little bit about the subject of personal Evangelism. This article is by no means exhaustive in its approach to the subject. Our goal here is to point out some of the misconceptions we have regarding personal Evangelism. Many programs and ideas have been put forth to help…

How Do We Believe?

How do we believe? An atheist gentleman once asked me “how does one believe and come to Christ?” It seems to be a simple question, but it’s one that most of us may get it wrong! In these past few months I posed this question to some Christian friends. Both young and old, and in…

Is Satan Real?

Is Satan real? Or is he a representation of evil? Is Satan a being or is he just an influence or a force? A while ago I had a conversation with an individual regarding the existence of the Evil. This gentleman asked me, “How can anyone in this day and age believe that there is…

Worldliness

What does it mean to be worldly? Most of us associate worldliness with the way people dress or the way they wear their makeup. But what exactly is worldliness? There are several words in the Bible that have been translated the world. The most significant one is kosmos. The basic meaning of Kosmos is: order,…

Unfixable

This week I was meditating on the unfixable circumstances that come into our lives. It seems like whether you are a Christian or not, sooner or later we all face situations in our lives that seem to be unfixable. These circumstances come to people in different forms. For some it’s a son or daughter who is going…

For You There Is A God

Last week I overheard a conversation between two young ladies regarding the existence of God. The first lady believed there is a God and was giving her reasons for the existence of God. After a while the second lady said, “If you believe there is a God then for you there is one, but I…

Misunderstanding The Lord’s Will

I recently applied for a new position at work for which I was not the ideal candidate. Most of my Christian co-workers would say “if it’s the Lord’s will it will come”.  Others would say “I’ll pray for you that the Lord’s will be done”. I prayed and said to the Lord that whether I…

In The Fullness Of Time

I was recently reminded of how the Lord works in time. I was praying for a friend to change his direction and be drawn to Christ. I prayed and prayed without seeing any hopeful sign. Until recently. All of sudden this friend is beginning to take positive steps and moving in the right direction. Have…

The Path To Sin

What are your criteria for making decisions? I know for most of us the first thing we consider is how this action would benefit us. It seems like the majority of our decisions in life are guided by self-interest. Self-interest is the engine that propels most of us in life. How do we determine what…

Considering The Cost

What would you do if you knew your children would suffer persecution in the future for maintaining biblical views? Would you still teach them biblical values or would you think it might be in their best interest if you didn’t. This may seem like a strange question to ask especially in the West. We think…

Why Are You Judging Me?

Have you ever pointed something to a friend that was in clear violation of God’s word only to hear “WHY ARE YOU JUDGING ME?” We all know people who are fault finders. These people seem to thrive on finding fault in others. You have to be perfect otherwise they are ready to point out your…
