  • Ten Big, Daily Reminders

    by Matt Reagan | March 20, 2013   I wake up lost every morning. At least that’s what it feels like. Perhaps something similar is true of you. Somehow during the night I’ve forgotten the big realities about God and the universe and myself and the gospel. I desperately need to steady myself with biblical truth rather than […]

  • Three Biblical Ways to Deal with Sin

    The New Testament gives us three broad categories to help us think about and work through our temptations and sins. All of our debilitating short-term and life-long habits are not resolved the same way. Not only is it different strokes for different folks, but it can also be different stokes for each of us depending on what […]

  • The Imbedded Creational Link Between Spirituality and Sexuality

    Posted by Alan Burrow on Jan 31, 2013 in Idolatry, Immorality, Marriage Sex Children Family Have you noticed how the culture war flash points are all sexual? Abortion, gay marriage, gender interchangeability, sex education, pornography, no fault divorce, all of these are connected to sex and sexuality. This shocks Christians, but it shouldn’t. It is not only predictable, it is inevitable. […]

  • 13 Reasons Christians Don’t Have to Be Afraid

    by Jonathan Parnell Fear is like the monster under my kids’ beds — its power is fueled not by what’s really there, but by whatmight be, what we imagine could be. Fear is a hollow darkness in the future that reaches back through time to rob our joy now by belittling the sovereign goodness of God. But […]

  • God Works Through Pharaoh

              I was reading through the plagues that God brought on Egypt in Exodus chapters 5-13. When you look at these passages there is the repeated phrase “Pharaoh hardened his heart’ or “God hardened Pharaohs heart”. In Romans 9:10-18 we are told that God has prepared people who are evil and disobedient […]

  • Women in Combat and the Undoing of Civilization

    by Denny Burk on JANUARY 23, 2013 in NEWS, POLITICS Our civilization just took a gigantic leap backward today, though I’m wondering if anyone will notice. Today Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta removed a rule that restricts women from serving in the front lines of combat. The U. S. military already has women serving in various roles in forward areas, but […]

  • Downstream, in the Moral Sewage

    by Tim All through history there have been the few who have benefitted at the expense of the many and the rich who have benefitted at the expense of the poor. Sometimes the progressive have benefitted at the expense of those who are falling behind. Many cities have produced endless amounts of waste and have flushed […]

  • When A Rock Sunk Slowly

    The day had been another mind-blower for the disciples. As they rowed toward Capernaum it was hard to stop talking about what they had seen. Five thousand men, plus women and children, and Jesus had fed them all! With one boy’s lunch! The power Jesus commanded both thrilled and unnerved them. And they had felt the […]

  • Jesus, Savior, Messiah

    I recently preached a message on Mark 1:1-8 and I admit I am still thinking through that passage of scripture.  “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God” Mark 1:1 The Bible is about the good news of Jesus, Jehovah is salvation that’s what Jesus name means. He is our salvation! […]
