Acting Like a Child

Jesus said all Christians need to have the attitude of a child. Why did he say that? In our world, when we tell an adult they are acting like a child, it’s not meant to be a good thing. So this dichotomy runs us smack into one of the great spiritual paradoxes. Understand more about it in Acting Like a Child.

The Day of Visitation

Looking up the term "Day of Visitation," most of the links go to the narrower prophetic meaning. We took a different approach. If "God comes" is the literal meaning of the term, then it also applies to God's work in our individual lives.

Up With the Times

In the Bible, we are told that the Church is to follow the original faith presented to it by Jesus Christ. It never needs updating. The original doctrines are eternal.

Fear or Fear Not

Being a Christian Pilgrim

Christians have always known they were to be pilgrims, a community of believers moving through life, headed in a definite direction, with a specific destination the focus.

Freedom in Christ—A Deeper Meaning

Paul uses the term, Freedom in Christ. When I finally left a corporate version of my church, I understood that term in a way that was new to me. That was quite a few years ago. Lately, that term has taken on a new and deeper meaning. I am offering it to you in this presentation.

The Purpose of Prophecy

What does God want us to learn from Bible prophecy? It’s quite likely Christians in every generation since Christ’s death have believed he would return in their life-times. And, so far, they have all been wrong. What is the purpose for Bible Prophecy, then, if it’s not to know when Christ will return?
