“There are a lot of people that I find it difficult to like. I don’t like what they do to me. I don’t like what they say about me and other people. I don’t like their attitudes. I don’t like some of the things they’re doing. I don’t like them. But Jesus says love them. […]
“Jesus never uttered opinions. He never guessed…He knew, and He knows. His words are not as Solomon’s were, the sum of sound wisdom or the results of keen observation. He spoke out of the fulness of His Godhead, and His words are very Truth itself. He is the only one who could say ‘blessed’ with […]
Is there another issue contributing to all of these celebrity men behaving badly?
A small tribute to our veterans!
“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
It seems that we’re looking at today’s issues thru stained glass windows. Keep reading…it’ll make sense.
For the church, the many abuses of human life, liberty, and dignity should be a heartfelt suffering. The church, entrusted with the earth’s glory, believes that in each person is the Creator’s image, and that everyone who tramples it offends God. As holy defender of God’s rights and of his images, the church must cry […]
“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 […]
“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)
“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?’ […]
“We must never preach violence, except the violence of love, which left Christ nailed to a cross…the violence that we must each do to ourselves to overcome our selfishness and such cruel inequalities among us. The violence we preach is not the violence of the sword, or the violence of hatred. It is the violence […]
Proverbs 10:12 “Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.” (KJV)
“The reason that we don’t act like Jesus in the world today is because we don’t see like Jesus saw. If we would see things the way He sees things, then we would act the way He would act.” ~ Skye Jethani
“Has your character ever been questioned because you ate or drank with sketchy people? Not everyone in the neighborhood is cleaned up and easy to be around. We need to be willing to follow Jesus and choose to be with others in uncomfortable situations, because we can’t always expect people to come onto our turf. […]
