Is there another issue contributing to all of these celebrity men behaving badly?
“It is better to be divided by truth than united in error. It is better to speak truth that hurts and then heals than to speak a lie. It is better to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie. It is better to stand alone with truth than […]
“Faith is not in itself a meritorious act; the merit is in the One toward Whom it is directed. Faith is a redirecting of our sight, a getting out of the focus of our own vision and getting God into focus. Sin has twisted our vision inward and made it self-regarding. Unbelief has put self […]
A small tribute to our veterans!
“Do you know why so many churches today are filled with people who have never been saved? It’s because they’ve never had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. They’ve met a creed, but not Christ. They’ve met a cause, but not Christ. They’ve met a code, but not Christ. They’ve met a church, but not […]
“The Bible will never be a living Book to us until we are convinced that God is articulate in His universe. To jump from a dead, impersonal world to a dogmatic Bible is too much for most people. They may admit that they should accept the Bible as the Word of God, and they may […]
“The purpose of Christianity is not to avoid difficulty, but to produce a character adequate to meet it when it comes. It does not make life easy; rather it tries to make us great enough for life.” ~ James L. Christensen
“You might think of praying without ceasing as communicating with God on one line while also taking calls on another. Even while you are talking on the other line, you never lose your awareness of the need to return your attention to the Lord. So…praying without ceasing means you never really stop conversing with God; […]
“To most people, God is an inference…not a reality. He is a deduction from evidence which they consider adequate; but He remains personally unknown to the individual. ‘He must be,’ they say, ‘therefore we believe He is.’ Others do not go even so far as this. They know of Him only by hearsay. They have […]
“If your picture of a disciplined Christian is one of a grim, tight-lipped, joyless half-robot, then you’ve missed the point. Jesus was the most disciplined Man who ever lived and yet the most joyful and truly alive.” ~ Donald S. Whitney
Matthew 14:26-27 (KJV) “And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, ‘Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.’ “
“I think we’ve gotten so used to the magnificence and beauty of the world around us, that we’ve forgotten that God made all of it. Literally. Everything is a figment of His imagination, created out of love…for you and me.” ~ Caralyn (author of Beauty Beyond Bones blog)
“The Christian life is a life of paradoxes. We must give to receive…realize we are blind to see…become simple to be wise…suffer for gain…and die to live.” ~ Author Unknown
“I know what it is to hate. I also know what it is like to hate all the ‘right things’ and deceive yourself by masking it in virtue. It’s okay to hate baby rapists, right? Wife beaters? Tweakers? Neo-nazis? You know, just the bad people. No…no it is not. That part about ‘love your enemies?’ […]
“Life is wasted if we do not grasp the glory of the cross, cherish it for the treasure that it is, and cleave to it as the highest price of every pleasure, and the deepest comfort in every pain. What was once foolishness to us—a crucified God—must become our wisdom and our power, and our […]
