Money Troubles? Stop Worrying About It!


It's characteristic of people who don't know God to be anxious about money and all the problems that arise when it's running short. God is not uncaring, capricious, or unpredictable. He loves his children better than we love our own.


4 Frustrating Things Christians Do

I have a few frustrating things that I wish I was clever enough to put into rhyme, so that they would hook into the memory of Christians. This is because remembering these few things could help the cause of the gospel.

Christian Group Friend Ships Gives Love, Aid to Desperate Syrians


I learned that Don Tipton founded Friend Ships. Previously his lifestyle included hanging out with famous stars in Beverly Hills and he lived next door to former President Ronald Reagan.

Or is it a path to xenophobia, following in the footsteps of the Nazis? Or, perhaps, is it simply a matter of perception, the word "nationalist" meaning one thing to one group and something entirely different to another group?


Without This, You Cannot Evangelize

Once you truly know the Lord, you will be horrified that millions of human beings just like you and me will end up in Hell if they die in their sins. So, you will live to share your faith—to share the gospel with the dying world that surrounds you.


How Churches Should Engage With the Political Sphere


With every election cycle, churches, their leaders, and congregants, face the same questions: Where do we fit into this debate? What positions should we take on the issues before us? What is our responsibility to our society? What are the limits of our engagement?


Pastors, Do You Exercise?

In our vocation, there seems to be a major disconnect among us regarding the importance of our physical condition. Have you ever considered that you are unable to go where your body and health cannot take you? It is not my intention to create guilt, but motivation.
