New Series… James: True Faith

by Glenn

Some people read James and think that they need to have faith and works to come to Jesus, but is that really what this book is about? James teaches that true faith transforms us from the inside out, so we now desire to do good works because the old self (Hating God and worshiping self) […]

A Legacy from Paul – yes Timothy, it was all worth it 

by Glenn

A Legacy from Paul – yes Timothy, it was all worth it  Introduction:  For anyone – Christian or not – it is fair to ask if following Jesus Christ with all the attendant problems this seems to bring  (especially in our society today) is really worth it.  Paul’s last letter addresses this very question to […]

Developing the discipline of praying for others Elder Homer Haynes

by Glenn

Pray for others too: Recently, as I contemplated my prayer needs, God spoke through the confusion I was experiencing: What about the needs of others?

Prayer, a powerful weapon: Elder Homer Haynes

by Glenn

God’s Ways

by Glenn

GOD’S WAYS   GOD’S WAYS: The biblical God is one who insists He will be seen in nature, and also is one who gives leave to chance (randomness) – he allows free will and injustice.  So is He in control?  The greatest point of contention between science and religion arises when believers insist God directly […]

Who is Jesus…..Really??

by Glenn

Paul, in his letter to the Colossians, writes in response to some false and destructive teachings on the gospel message being spread in the early years of Christianity.  These were not unique to that time, however, for we are faced with similar distortions today.

Ramblings about the Lord’s Prayer

by Glenn

ELDER DEVOTIONAL… As I mature in Christ, the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:1-4 increases in impact to my daily life.

Loving God Together In An Ungodly World

by Glenn

  The church in Corinth was really hurting.  The Christians of Corinth were surrounded by temptation and immorality, just like we are today.  Corinth was the, Las Vegas of its day.  Pleasure and philosophy were worshiped above all.

Stop Living In the Past

by olywebdev

Why do we struggle with the same old things?  Why do we find ourselves breaking that vows we made to God and ourselves?  Are we destined to go round and round, living in the fear of our future and the shame of our past?  Is living in a constant state of recovery all there is, […]
