What is the Love of God?

What is the love of God? That is a good question that has at its root the consequences of eternity. So many people today like to use the argument “you’re not loving like Jesus” or “aren’t you supposed to love like God loves?” Or “that’s not the love of Christ.” Some even say that Christians […]

American Jericho

The debate on abortion has started raging again with the new law in New York stoking the fires, as if Christians should ever remain silent on the issue. But ever since Roe vs Wade legalized the murdering of children decades ago, it seems that the popular, national Christian voice has always been about picketing, writing […]

Don’t Let The Devil Tell You How To Be A Christian

We live in an age where everyone is considered a “Christian.” You can claim to be a Christian without reading the Bible, knowing the Lord, or accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior.

The Fisherman’s Field Guide To Fishin (Or What To Do Instead of Fishing

   The Bible talks about ‘Fishers of Men,’ but Jesus said that to fishermen. The majority of Christians aren’t fishermen. Yet we still try to take this concept of being fishers of men and apply it to witnessing and sometimes, just sometimes, we focus on this concept of the “bait we use.” However, Jesus was […]

Have You Stopped Praying?

Well, the election is over and the prayers of the saints have seen Donald Trump elected as the next President. I do have to wonder though, if all the churches and Christians have stopped praying. I don’t mean that in a bad way or to attack anyone. However, the church has a good history of […]
