Now is the Time

February 1, 2012 by

It seemed like when we were growing up, a day at school went on forever. An hour in church  would never end. I believe that I have actually seen a preacher stop time, or at least it felt like it. Time does pass faster with high school and then even faster with college. Once college […]

Can We Trust the Bible?

January 29, 2012 by

There has always been a battle for the Bible. Church history is plagued with deviant views on the topic.1 Can we trust the Bible?  Ever since the Bible was written its authority has been questioned and oftentimes cast aside.  It seems that every time the Bible is discussed in the news, movies, TV shows, and […]

Staying Close to God

What are we looking for in a relationship? We are all like lost sheep, helpless and can’t defend ourselves. So we look for someone who will provide us security. Someone who will provide us food and lodging and protect us when we need be. Someone who will always be there for us no matter what. […]

Too many times we have built barriers in our mind that prevent our own happiness. Whether it is failed relationships, things we’ve done that we haven’t forgiven ourselves for or anger we hang onto because of someone that has mistreated us in the past. We need to let these things go. What we say and […]

It’s All About the Change

January 7, 2012 by

0

The word in the Bible that describes this change is “Repentance”.  True repentance is feeling sorry for the sins we have committed against God.  It is the turning away from those sins and turning toward God. It is not  a fear of the consequences of sin or the fear of God. True repentance in the […]

The last church will be the largest religious organization on earth. In its humble beginning it will declare itself as a city on a hill where the eyes of all people will be upon it.  The church will declare itself as the greatest cause of all mankind. Their manifest destiny will be to overspread the […]
