From my experience with working with young adults (and being one myself), this article rings true in many ways. For years, the church seems to have adopted this “dumb it down” approach to bible discussion and application. Today we tell our young adults to challenge themselves by going to tough universities and striving to learn […]
Never have a meeting without a purpose. Do not waste people’s time by having a meeting that has no real agenda or purpose. Better yet, make sure you have more then one purpose. Do something. Not many people like to come to meetings, so make sure they feel like they did something when they leave. […]
A common misconception in determining the value of translations is that it should be compared to another English translation. This is a grave mistake on anyone’s part for it is almost like the blind leading the blind. In order to get an accurate feel for a translation, its validity, and its usefulness, one must first […]
Like me, many find themselves caught in the world of chaos. We run constantly and can’t remember where we’ve been. Sometimes, we get so caught up in “good things” that we forget what our purpose really is. Our purpose is spelled out for us in the Bible! Don’t believe me? I’ll show you! Ephesians talks […]
I love the book “Theology For The Community Of God” by Stanley Grenz. In his section concerning Angelology, Grenz brings up a discussion of Job. Grenz brings up the idea of Satan being in the court of God. However, Grenz utilizes the story of Job to explain that it is Satan who is in fact […]
In my opinion, one of the greatest journeys taken by men is the journey of restoring the New Testament Church.

Although people like Martin Luther, […]
Thank you to everyone who commented about my previous post asking if it was sinful to drink wine if one does not become drunk. The majority of you stated no and made some great conversation concerning it. I would have to agree. Nowhere in the Bible does it say drinking wine in and of itself […]
It’s an age old question…well actually its not so old. The question is: Is it sinful to drink wine or other alcoholic drinks if one does it occasionally and does not become a drunkard? In other words: Is it a sin to drink wine in moderation if one does not become drunk? I will not […]
In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Propterea sicut per unum hominem in hunc mundum peccatum intravit et per peccatum mors et ita in omnes homines mors pertransiit in quo omnes peccaverunt. Iustificati igitur ex fide pacem habeamus ad Deum per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum. Omnes enim peccaverunt et egent gloriam Dei.
Sic enim dilexit Deus mundum ut Filium suum unigenitum daret ut omnis qui credit in eum non pereat sed habeat vitam aeternam. In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Et cognoscetis veritatem et veritas liberabit vos.
