Discussion-based Lessons

Discussion-based lessons have groups talking and changing. We are changed more by what we say than what we hear. "Instead SPEAKING the truth (not just hearing the truth) we will grow." Ephesians 4.15 https://www.youtube.com/embed/lduldVUA8-4

An inviting campaign

82% of the unchurched are at least somewhat likely to attend church if invited. This according to Dr. Thom Rainer's book The Unchurched Next Door. There is more. Only 2% of church going people ever invite someone to church in a given year. Seven out of ten unchurched...

They’re for the funeral

God is never late

Robert E. Lee trusted few men more than Major General James Ewell Brown Stuart, or “Jeb” as he came to be known. Lee and Jeb had been friends for years before the Civil War began, serving together in the US Army in numerous military campaigns throughout the 1850s. Jeb...

God sends the best!

I read about a woman who locked her keys in her car in a rough neighborhood. She tried a coat hanger to break into her car, but she couldn’t get that to work. Finally, she prayed, “God, send me somebody to help me.” Five minutes later, a rusty old car pulled up. A...

Saving on Commentaries

One of the many things I love about Logos Bible Software is the deep discounts on books. There are other benefits—the ability to do complex searches, and the ability to copy and paste into a sermon or other document being two of the big ones. But the deep discounts on...

What is the devil like?

The Bible tells us several specific things about the nature of our enemy. THE DEVIL IS INVISIBLE Satan doesn’t look like a terrible monster or dark cloud and tempt you or make you angry. In fact, he does what he can to disguise himself and make himself invisible so he...

Are homosexuals born that way?

In 1993, this statement gained prominent and popular attention when Newsweek magazine devoted an entire issue to homosexuality and scientific studies.[2] They reviewed the work of Simon LeVay, a professed homosexual, who set out to prove the biological basis of...

Women and ministry

When it comes to understanding biblical teaching about the role of women in the church, there seems to be danger on every side. First, there is the danger of controversy. Few issues have brought more division in recent years than the role of women in the church....

The Bible and Homosexuality

I’d like to offer an apology to the homosexual community. As a follower of Jesus, I want to state as clearly as I can to any homosexual reading these words that I regret the treatment you have received from people who claim to be my brothers and sisters in Christ. I...

The Devil Is Real

Some people say, “Oh, I don’t believe in the devil.” Satan loves to hear that! The devil loves it when people refuse to believe in him. That means he is totally camouflaged and covered by their lack of belief. That means he can come in under the radar, totally...

The radical shift in sexual ethics

The speed takes your breath away! Never in the history of the world has a culture and its values concerning sexuality shifted as fast or as drastically as they have in America in the last fifty years. I’m not saying there hasn’t been immorality far worse or equivalent...

How did we get in this mess?

It is at this point that we see the emergence of situational ethics, which became an important foundation for future change. I remember, from when I was nine or ten years old, my own mother’s frustration with this new school of thought. She worked as a guidance...

The world’s most misquoted verse

Is there a more misquoted verse in the Bible than Philippians 4:13? I don’t think there is. I think people want to apply that to everything. A Christian businessman might say, “I’m going to be a CEO. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Well, that’s...

Whatever happened to right and wrong?

If you are old enough, you may remember a time when the difference between right and wrong was clearly understood in America. Even those who committed criminal acts did so in spite of knowing better. Up until the beginning of the last half-century, all of recorded...

The Nature of Our Enemy

I knew from the look on the nurse’s face that something was wrong. As soon as she removed the bandages, she abruptly said, “I’ll get the doctor.” With that, she whirled around and hurried from the room. Her words were not unusual. The tone in which she spoke them and...

The Bible and gender

Are the differences between men and women facts or fictions? My two-year-old daughter offers me a barrette to put in my hair. I politely decline. “Barrettes are for girls,” I say. “Boys and daddies don’t wear barrettes.” Am I simply making this up, or am I reflecting...

Do you realize that the largest generation with the greatest amount of resources in the history of the United States is now in retirement: the baby boomers. And many of them are wasting their best years, living for themselves. Is that you? Don’t waste your retirement....

Who is the devil and how does he work?

The Bible clearly teaches two things about evil: You have a powerful enemy, and he has a name. For years some people have talked about God in general terms. He’s their Higher Power, the Force, or the Man Upstairs. The truth is, good has a name, and His name is God....

Why I Believe

The millions of changed lives in the last two thousand years argue, experientially, that Jesus is alive, and is who He says He is. There is something very powerful about a personal testimony. Even in Jesus’ day we hear of a man born blind who was given his sight by...

What do you do when evil strikes you?

We all know that both good and evil exist in our world. We are taught from early childhood that some things are bad, and some are good. We are taught as children that we need to develop an ability to distinguish between good and evil. As we grow up, we are cautioned...
