Go To Your Brother
Unity was so important to Jesus that he told his disciples that if they were in the temple about to make a sacrifice and suddenly recalled that someone had something against them, they should immediately leave the temple, seek out the one offended and make peace. Getting the relationship right is more important than performing religious activities.
The Tail Wagging the Dog
It's a saying that means "something is backwards here." But what could be backward in a Christian's life?
Something for Nothing
We like to think of ourselves as generous, but there is something about human nature that causes us to want "something for nothing." This tendency causes all kinds of trouble. Learn to get away from it in our latest presentation, Something for Nothing.
Jesus tells us in the Bible “judge not that you be not judged.” Then again he tells us to “judge righteous judgment.” Which is it? Did you know that in the answer is a strong connection to our spiritual and mental health? Learn more about it in Judging Others.
The very first thing God showed us to do in his Word, very few of us are willing to do. One of the greatest blessings God has ever given us is also one of the things humans have resisted the most. Learn how to be blessed by God in our latest presentation, Keeping the Sabbath.
Proving the Sabbath
Jesus wasn't afraid the world would rub off on him. He rubbed shoulders with all kinds of people so he would rub off on the world. One way we Sabbatarian Christians can rub off on in our world is our observance of the Sabbath. To do that we need an explanation that speaks the concerns of non-Sabbatarians.
The Benefits of Gratitude
Most people know that gratitude expressed is a social benefit to the one expressing and the one receiving. And most Christians know that God tells us to be grateful to Him for his blessings (and trials). But did you know that gratitude is also an indicator of mental health?
Healing the Breach
The Day of Atonement, Jewish Holy Day, or Christian Observance? Did you know that the Apostle Paul used the Day of Atonement to explain the New Covenant? That said, how could the day not have meaning for us?
The Bible calls Christians “saints.” Some people think a saint is a perfect, or nearly perfect person. But the Bible emphasizes something else. Learn more about what saints are and do as well s the mindset they carry with them.
The New You – Baptism Part 4
Paul says that we become a new person when we are baptized. How does that work? What does it mean? Did it happen to you? Learn about The New You in this presentation.
Whited Sepulchres – Baptism Part 3
Jesus told the Pharisees they were like whitewashed tombs - nice looking to the eye, but inside full of decay. What was the decay he was talking about? And since Whited Sepulchres is about baptism, what does a burial site have to do with that topic?
Deadman Walking – Baptism Part 2
Baptism is the rite that signifies a person's commitment to God as a Christian. What kind of commitment is it? Is it like joining a club? We might think so as we view the contemporary Christian scene. But Baptism is much more than that. Go deeper in Deadman Walking.
What is Baptism? – Baptism Part 1
Baptism is the rite that God uses to specify that a person has become a part of the body of Christ — the church. After the election of the President of the United States, the winner, by law, is not the President until he takes the oath of office. That doesn’t fit too well when a President is incumbent and wins, but if he’s newly elected, then he is not President. The previous president is still the president until he takes the oath of office. Similarly, baptism signifies membership in the body of Christ, the church.

God and Politics
It's been said there are two things never to talk about with someone if you want to stay friends: Religion and politics. We decided to kill two birds with one stone in this presentation and talk about both of them at once -- but we still want to be friends!
