Obedience and living radically for Him in 2012

Many Christians treat obedience as a “suggestion” rather than a mandate from Jesus. But how can we sort out what He calls us to do versus our own desires and plans for our journeys? What would it truly take in 2012 to be as radical as Jesus in our Christian lifestyle and thinking? The Bible […]

Fire breathing Christians…I’m sure that title causes discomfort in many of us in these politically correct days we live in.  We have been taught as Christians to be kind, meek and gentle.  And certainly those are desirable characteristics when we keep them in proper context and perspective.  But, as always, we look to the bible […]

The Lines Are Being Drawn

2011 has indeed been an interesting year to be a Christian.  From the controversial teachings of Rob Bell, to the so called “Arab Spring”, to the ill-advised predictions of Harold Camping, it has been a fascinating year.  And through it all, I believe God is continuing to implement the separation of His sheep from the […]

What do you do with the gifts?

  Today we talked about the Signs and Wonders movement within Charismatic thought that is quite frankly disturbing.

WARNING: Kundalini Yoga's "Highest Mantra Meditation"

We’ve warned before about the many forms of  Kundalini Yoga Meditations, which combine the use of mantras, mudras and pranayama (breathing), to bestow profound spiritual “benefits” to those who practice them.  Many Christians are being taught these dangerous but popular meditations in day spas, fitness facilities, hospitals, and sadly, in some Christian churches.
