How Do You Deal With Toxic People in Your Life?

Sometimes we have people in our lives who seem to create difficulty wherever they go. This can be for a variety of reasons including the fact that WE could be actually attracting such folks into our experiences. For now, let’s assume there are some people who simply live unhappy and unfulfilled lives. In their search […]

Contradictions (Part VI): Do the Accounts of Jesus’ Life Contradict Themselves?

This continues our series on Bible Contradictions.  The life of Jesus as a man on earth was filled with wonder, teaching and miracles.  His obedience to his Father’s will was the centerpiece of his mission, as he came to pay the ransom price for Adam.  Critics say Jesus’ earthly life was also filled with contradictions.  […]

Contradictions (Part V): What Profound Secret Does Creation Reveal?

This continues our series on biblical contradictions.  Genesis is the first book of the Bible and its foundation.  It lays out for us the origin of the intricacies of our world, as well as the origins of the human race.  Morality is introduced, and this book takes us through the first few thousand years of […]

Contradictions (Part IV): Why So Many Contradictions Surrounding Jesus’ Resurrection?

This continues our series on biblical contradictions.  Ask any Christian and they will tell you one of the greatest – if not THE greatest – events in all of biblical history is the resurrection of Jesus after his crucifixion.  We laud this event as the undeniable guarantee that God’s plan for the world’s salvation is […]

If I Slander and Gossip, What Does That Say About Me?

It is a sad thing to say, but slander and gossip are easy.  They are.  Whether by spoken word or social media interaction, we are set up to say things, write things and imply things about others without recourse.  For some reason we think it is okay to slam those we don’t like with twisted […]

Are Jesus’ Ransom and Our Salvation the Same?

Jesus died for our sins, and if we believe in him we will go to heaven.  This common Christian belief that ties Jesus’ sacrifice and our salvation up into one neat package sounds simple, but it actually raises many questions.  What does it mean to “believe” in Jesus?  Is belief in his teachings the point […]

Am I a Jealous Christian?

Jealousy and envy are often very secret sins.  We invite them into our lives and harbor them deeply in our hearts where they fester and grow.  One day we look around, and if we are observant, we realize we are seeing our world through different and damaged eyes.  Jealousy and envy not only damage our […]

Does the Old Testament Law Apply to Me?

The New Testament gives us a clear picture of Jesus replacing the Old Testament Law as our path to life.  As Christians we all agree with this, and yet so many of us still follow parts of that old Jewish Law.  Why?  Are certain aspects of it supposed to be carried over?  Are we required […]

What is the End Times Resurrection About? How Does It Work?

Most people seem to have a sense there is something beyond this life, that death is not a permanent end. This “sense” is expressed in a myriad of differing beliefs about life and death.
