The Message of the Message “Bible”

There are many translations of The Bible we can choose from these days.  Some are more literal while some take great liberties to present the original language in a more ‘reader friendly” format.  Then there are those that are not really Bibles at all–and today we discuss a paraphrase of the Bible that is becoming […]

Is Your Church and You a “Right Fit”?

The Bible teaches us that Christian fellowship is crucial to our lives as believers.  In this “market/consumer driven” era in which we live church hopping has become the norm as a growing number of professing Christians seek comfort over growth.  We would rather have a church that fits our lifestyle than be in a fellowship […]

How Should A Christian Live In A Culture Given Over To A Depraved Mind?

Posted by Christine Pack at Sola Sisters and reprinted with permission Before I was born again, I had a number of homosexual friends, and for some reason, I often ended up being a sympathetic ear for them. This was before homosexuality was accepted as normal, as it is today, and many of them expressed to […]

Uniting Religions for Global Change?

Did you know that “Mother Earth” is just waiting for us to hear that we love her, and give her a prayer of gratitude?  In fact, you might consider performing your own water ritual – privately of course – that will bring you closer to Mother Earth than ever before.  Good grief, that sounds like […]

Ten problems with the “salt and light” excuse for feeding children to the State.

Let’s celebrate it and thank God […]

Chipping Away at Church

The Christian Church in America is under increasing pressure to compromise with and conform to the “values” of this fallen, sinful world.  While it is no surprise that the world hates the Christian Church, it is alarming how many who profess to be Christians within the church seem to be active or passive participants in […]

Liberalism’s warm fuzzy god

For a number of years a woman I know, I’ll call her Rachel, has wrestled with giving her life to Christ. She admits she really wants to, but how can she when she’d have to serve a God who allows murderers into heaven and sends “good people” to hell? It would be awkward to have […]

They’re Back….

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was were no deceptive movements disguising themselves as Biblical Christianity these days?  If we could turn on Christian television and not worry about deception disguised as “truth”.  If we could enjoy a Saturday morning without that knock on the door bringing another religious cult member wanting to tell you […]

“Forgive the Shooter.” The Most Difficult Command?

Today we’ll be covering some breaking and alarming news: ISIS claims responsibility for Texas shooting, threatens more attacks. Every day the news reports another story of senseless killing, terror and the murder of Christians.  Our flesh wants to lash out in vengeance–yet Jesus taught us In Matthew 5 to love, forgive and pray for our […]

Those 7 Churches in Revelation…

About 2,000 years ago on the Greek island of Patmos, Jesus Christ Himself came to his beloved servant John and commanded him to, “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and […]

Vanity, vanity

Have you spent time in the book of Ecclesiastes lately? It not only tells the story of how King Solomon learned the meaninglessness of making himself his own god of sorts, but it leaves us with wise words from someone who threw his own God-given wisdom away. Joining us for today’s discussion is our friend […]

Then later on in the program we’re going to share a hard-hitting article on how easy it is to allow sloppy doctrine to slide into the church and leave a trail of […]

Want Some False Doctrine in Your Life? Try These Handy Tips!

Kudos to Steve Kozar over at the Messed Up Church blog (love that blog name), for this article, which captures the more frustrating elements of trying to contend for the faith in an environment where yeast grows freely.  (Plus, it’s the first Christian blog I know of that has found a way to incorporate Shaba […]

Suffering and Prayer in the Christian Life

Today we look at two important, yet often misunderstood doctrines in the Bible: Suffering and Prayer. No one really wants to suffer.  We would all prefer a life of comfort.  But the Bible warns us that suffering is an important part of the Christian life–and that when it happens we should rejoice!   Tough teaching indeed. […]

Perpetual adolescence

In the Old Testament a young man was considered an adult at age 13—once He was a “bar mitzvah”. He was to have memorized the Torah and was to be able to speak to its wisdom. He began to make his own choices, guided by a Minion of Jews including his father and relatives. If […]

Andy Stanley: Even if you don’t believe that Jesus is the Son of God, you will have a better life by following his teachings

“Who doesn’t want their life to be better?” That’s a question Pastor Andy Stanley asked recently.  And his answers are very telling. When we compare some of Andy Stanley’s teachings lately to Scripture, we’re seeing some many discrepancies. We encourage you to do the comparative work for yourself (as the Bereans did), listening carefully to […]
