A Feast Unlike Any Other

You can’t imagine life without him.

United to Christ: The Believer’s New Identity

The superstitious Athenians to whom Paul preached wanted to make sure that they didn’t miss out on identifying with a god that could possibly be the all-powerful God. They sensed an empty space that they felt compelled to fill with an idol “to the unknown god” (Acts 17:23). To say that the Athenians were missing […]

The Destructive Power of False Doctrine

The temptation is strong for a young person to question the necessity of an emphasis on true doctrine. It is certainly not a concern of the world, or even of most of what calls itself church.

Delivering the Helpless

God hates bullying. That needs to be stated not only because there is truth found in the quotation of George Orwell that “restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men.” It needs to be said, because it is the truth: “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination […]

The Game

On Sunday evening, February 4, millions of people will gather around their TVs to watch the Super Bowl. Sadly, many Christians will also sit down and watch “the game that everyone has to watch.” Some might even scornfully ask you why you will not join them.

I Resolve…

Has it ever struck you how often our New Year’s resolutions mirror those made by the world? “I am going to eat healthy and lose weight this year!” “This year I am going to commit to exercising at least three times a week!” There are things we commit to doing and any number of things […]
