Woefully Misrepresented…

“The nature of Christ’s salvation is woefully misrepresented by some present-day evangelists. They announce a Saviour from hell rather than a Saviour from sin. And that is why so many are fatally deceived…for there are multitudes who wish to escape the lake of fire who have no desire to be delivered from their carnality and […]

Inherent Value…

“I think what we reinforce over and over again in Christian circles is that your value is based on how useful you are. How much are you changing the world for God? How effective are you on the mission field? How well are you fulfilling your destiny? We marinate in that thinking, and it transforms […]

Expected To Pray…

“I realize that to say prayer is expected of us may make the children of a nonconformist, anti-authoritarian age bristle a bit. Those who have been brought under the authority of Christ and the Bible, however, know that the will of God is for us to pray. But we also believe that His will is […]

Think About It…

“You never hear Jesus say in Pilate’s judgment hall one word that would let you imagine that He was sorry that He had undertaken so costly a sacrifice for us. When His hands are pierced, when He is parched with fever, His tongue dried up like a shard of pottery, when His whole body is […]

Think About It…

“God doesn’t want you to give with a grudge—that is, you give but you’d rather not. He takes no pleasure in gifts presented resentfully, regardless of the amount involved. God is not a celestial landlord tapping a greedy, outstretched palm, demanding His due, having no concern for how you feel about it. God doesn’t want […]

Think About It…

  “Why does it matter that you make sure that you have a life that brings honour to God? Because if your life isn’t bringing glory to God, your ministry never will! Do you want to have a ministry that glorifies God? Good! Then make sure that your life is doing the same!” ~ Tim […]

Think About It…

“I tell the world all the time…I was a gangster before I met Jesus. Now I’m a redeemed sinner with gangster proclivities. I say that everyday. Why? Because it’s REAL. It’s not just a matter of repeating the words…it’s about reminding myself of what Jesus has done for me, and being thankful for what my […]

Think About It…

“If you’re encouraging and comforting students, but not urging them to live a life worthy of God—then they might feel very supported, but might not be held accountable to a level of godliness that will take them forward” “On the other hand, if you’re urging students to live a life worthy of God, but you’re […]

Think About It…

“If you want impact, you have to go for intimacy. The single most determining factor in how impactful I have been in ministry for Jesus has to do with how intimate I have been with Jesus himself.” ~ Tim Hawkins

Think About It…

“Oh—if there’s one thing us youth pastors and leaders need to work on…to work hard at, to work relentlessly at…it is to guard our hearts. Because the work that God is doing in us is more important than the work he is doing through us. If you want to have a great ministry, then before […]

Think About It…

“If it was God’s desire to provide us with an accurate and reliable account of the life of Jesus, an account we could trust and recognize as consistent with other forms of eyewitness testimony, God surely accomplished it with the four gospel accounts. Yes, the accounts are messy. They are filled with idiosyncrasies and personal […]

Think About It…

“I’m alarmed sometimes when I hear Christians make inaccurate statements related to the nature of evidence. When discussing evidence with skeptics, we don’t need to concede that a particular fact related to the Christian worldview is not a piece of evidence simply because it is not a piece of direct evidence. Even though a particular […]
