Faith brings life-changing trust. Faith is also a gift. There are three basic phases to Christian faith - what are they and how do they work? Watch this short vlog and then listen to the podcast of the same name.
As believers, we know the Bible is true and harmonious, but sometimes that means we need to harmonize scriptures that seem to contradict one another. For example, the Scriptures tell us that the earth will both live forever AND be destroyed - how does that work? How can we apply a particular study technique to help us out?
On our 2017 Christmas podcast, we took a unique approach to telling the traditional Christmas story by including various conversations Jesus had as an adult. We found a pattern of who he gave his time to and what secret reveals he shared to these special people. Watch this quick vlog and then listen to the entire program for a new perspective on how attentive this Savior of the World was to our human needs.
Hasn’t it been long enough? Meaning, it is 2,000 years since Jesus walked the earth with the promise of change, the promise of righteousness and the promise of his kingdom. So, where is he? Where is the change – the good - that he promised? All we can see now is a world that slowly walks away from Christianity and that walks towards self...self-satisfaction, self-gratification and self-worship. Has the power of the message of Jesus quietly faded into the sunset? Is the Gospel lost and gone forever?
We all at one time or another have visions of grandeur – thoughts and dreams about what we can do to be a positive and abiding influence on others for the sake of Christ. In many cases, these ideas percolate a bit and then quietly fade away. Today, we have with us a special guest who had an idea for the furtherance of the Gospel, pursued it, developed it, lived it and today is going to tell us about what has become a 15-year journey of praise and honor to our God. Do NOT go away! You need to hear this!
We are blessed – truly blessed - to know Christ and to have the opportunity for salvation before us. In light of this blessing that is claimed by Christians, some have raised the question if you (Christians) have this blessing and path to God’s favor while the vast majority of the world’s population does not, then isn’t that saying that your God is not an equal opportunity employer? Is that a fair God? Is their question legitimate?
It has been 2,000 years since Jesus walked the earth with the good tidings of the Gospel. When he finished his work, he left the infant religion of Christianity in the faithful hands of the twelve Apostles. These men “prospered and grew” Christianity. So 2,000 years later, in a world that is mostly non-Christian and largely secular, is the work of the Gospel still “prospering and growing?" Are we now achieving what our Lord Jesus set out for us to do? Stay with us as we look at the cold hard facts of Christianity in the world today.
