Ever since Jesus departed for heaven, Christians have been trying to figure out when he was coming back. Many people, since then, have made dogmatic predictions about the exact date, and many have believed them. But so far, everyone has been wrong. Is there a way to figure it out? Do we even need to know? Or is what Jesus said about his return in the Bible all we need?
Many people living outside of Israel don’t think much about the Sea of Galilee, yet God uses this beautiful lake to instruct Christians about a vital aspect of Christian life. Don’t miss out on it.
In the 70’s pop psychology emphasized “self-esteem” as a necessity for mental health. Never mind that federal prison inmates scored high on self-esteem scales. Clearly, how we see ourselves, has a profound effect on our mood, productivity, and behavior, but how? What does the Bible say about how we ought to see ourselves?
Description: There is so much confusion about guilt. Besides the fact that it feels terrible, is it good for us or bad? Does it drag us down, or motivate us to change? What does the Bible say? What does modern psychology say? Consider this issue in Guilt - Mental Health and the Bible 7.
Presidents, in the United States, are traditionally evaluated for their accomplishments after the first 100 days. The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ will return to the earth and make sweeping changes. What will it be like in His First 100 days?
Christians strive to be good servants of God. We sometimes find ourselves in the grip, however, of tendencies to grow spiritually dull. This dullness often arises distorted ways of thinking about God, life, others and ourselves. Learn how to spot your own distortions in this presentation.

The day is simply called "the eighth day." And yet it is a holy day, just as is Pentecost, or the Feast of Trumpets. What is the significance of the Eighth Day?
In John 7, we see Jesus observing and even preaching during a biblical festival called the Feast of Tabernacles. This festival pictures the salvation plan that He and the Father have been working out. He said, in that sermon, that those who come to Him, will receive the Holy Spirit, a clearly New Testament event. And yet most Christians have never even heard of this festival!
The Bible predicts one of the most astounding events in all history, the restoration of the relationship between God and humankind, broken in the Garden of Eden. The prediction is mentioned in the Book of Revelation with much emphasis and fanfare, an important event in the mind of God. Many would be surprised to learn that there is a day on God's calendar every year to commemorate that incredible event. But how could that possibly be true? Very few Christians know about it.
