Busyness

It’s hard to believe but at the end of this month we will be half-way through the entire year of 2019!  It seems as though the year just started.  One reason time seems to go by so fast for us is that we are so busy.  Our lives are sometimes like a whirlwind.  We have...

God Does Exist!

Did Jesus Ever Claim to be God?

The question of Jesus' deity was formally settled by the early church at the Council of Nicea in A.D. 325.  Yet I still find this vital doctrine challenged by many people today.  Often times this rejection of truth comes from critics of Christianity who seek to...

Expressing Our Love for God

It’s now the 2nd month of the year, aka the “month of love.”  That’s right—Valentine’s Day is upon us.  And as people express their love for that special someone in their lives we, as Christians, should be sure to show our love for God.  Better still, we should...
