VIDEO: Moments that Matter – Do Tithes and Offerings Belong in Christianity?

Many churches claim that “tithing,” church members donating 10% of their income, has an obvious Old Testament foundation. Does it? Old Testament tithing was land based and no tithe was ever given in monetary form. Is there any connection to what happens today? Watch this short vlog then listen to the podcast of the same name for an eye-opening discussion!

VIDEO: Moments that Matter – Has the Gospel Been Corrupted? (Part II)

Part II builds on our discussion of Part I, where Jesus predicted there would be corruption of his true church almost immediately after his death and that of his Apostles. On this short vlog, we touch on some of the problems with Christianity today. Watch and then listen to the entire podcast of the same name. Consider how we can get closer in our Bible studies to the way it was originally intended by Jesus.

VIDEO: Moments that Matter – Has the Gospel Been Corrupted? (Part I)

Jesus taught us many things and often spoke in parables to hide their true meaning. One of the few parables he explained was the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares. He predicted that the gospel message would be corrupted as time moved further away from when he and his Apostles died. We are grateful for this warning because, by expecting this to occur, we can begin to understand what we need to watch out for. It reinforces just how crafty Satan is and how wee can be deceived if we are not diligent. Watch this 2-minute vlog and then listen to the entire podcast of the same name.

So, Where Do I Start?

Tell us if this is familiar: You have decided that your life feels pretty empty, that what you have tried and how you have tried it just does not work. You know there has got to be more meaning to life, and so you are drawn to Christianity and you accept Jesus. For a while, you feel better, but slowly you get that gnawing feeling that nothing has really fundamentally changed in your life. What do you do? How do you find the real bottom line change that you have been looking for and actually let it change you? If this description fits you or someone you know, then stay with us, because we are going to get basic and practical! I am a Christian but want to REALLY be a Christian. So, where do I start?
