Ever wonder when christian parents, who take their children to church, bible study, prayed, and read the word of God with their children, and teach them about Jesus. Then take photos of Santa Clause, the Easter bunny, and get money from the tooth fairy. The child then grows up walks away from the faith and may denounce Jesus. The parents then say "I'm not sure what went wrong we took them to Church, read the bible, told them about Jesus." STOP lying to your children.

Some people say, "Well, I'm a Christian. I believe in the Ten Commandments. I try to keep the Golden Rule."
The belief that goodness earns eternal salvation is the single most prevalent misconception about Christian teaching. The question is, by whose standard are you "good"—God's perfect standard or man's imperfect one? Jesus commands us to "Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Fa...Read Full Post »

It seems that the depressive aspect of the bipolar diagnosis is its most damaging element. The anxiety and worry that cripples individuals is of great concern. The Bible is not silent on this issue of anxiety and worry. Matthew 6:25-34 provides instruction for those tempted to worry b...Read Full Post »

Many pastors are afraid to teach the true message that the bible hold because they fear rejection from the congregation. 2Timothy 4:3, and 4 speaks of this and shows the true wisdom off God in preparing us for it: "There will be a time when they will not put up with healthful teaching but according to their own desires will accumulate teachers for themselves to satisfy their itching ears..." This means people will dictate what they want to hear from the pulpit and won't accept ...Read Full Post »

We should read and study the Bible because it is God's Word to us. The Bible is literally "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God's very words to us. There are so many questions that philosophers have asked that God answers for us in Scripture. What is the purpose to life? Where did I come from? Is there life after death? How do I get to heaven? Why is the world full of evil? Why do I struggle to do g...Read Full Post »

On Thursday August 27, 2009 I was involved in a facebook discussion, which was started by a pastor of a large church in Las Vegas Nevada. The pastor implied that people trust God with their life's but won't trust him with their tithe.
Tithing is an Old Testament concept. The tithe was a requirement of the law in which all Israelites were to give 10 percent of everything they earned and grew to the Tabernacle/...Read Full Post »
