Will a Failed Magisterium Be Bolstered by Legislation?
The Institutional Church teaches that contraception is a serious sin, but despite their best efforts for many years, nearly all Catholics disagree with that premise. Should the Institutional Church seek to criminalize it by getting a law passed?The Church Is Wrong About Same-Gender Marriage
It used to be simple, but now you have to think about a number of related issues. In the end, there is almost always a right thing to do.God Is a Forgiving God
Some people struggle with or are unsure of God’s willingness to forgive them of their sins. This article expounds on God’s willingness and faithfulness to forgive us.Walking Your Way To Your Prophetic Destiny “Living A Prophetic Life”
Prophecy has played major part in revealing God’s purpose for our lives. In this article I want to share with Christians on how to handle prophecy and respond to prophecy. A clear definition of prophecy or a prophetic word will help every Christian to know and sense the leading and guidance of God in their lives.Some Most Useful Verses for Muslim Evangelism
Notice, the title of this article suggests it is about “Some” most useful verses for Muslim evangelism, not “The” most useful verses. There are no magic bullets for most things. This certainly is true of Muslim evangelism. Any guess what these verses are? John 3:3 and John 3:16-17? – No. These are good, but not what I have in mind…God Will Avenge Your Deaths
So cried Israel’s chief rabbi at the funeral of Toulouse victims (Actually one of our 2 chief rabbis since the two major divisions of Judaism decided that they need to approach God from two different directions) Anyway, if God acts true to character, anything is possible. As Richard Dawkins so eloquently describes him (or her): “The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal,…Jesus’ Humanity and the Muslim View of Jesus

You see, Isa means Jesus. Some argue this point and say that Islam doesn’t believe in the genuine Jesus. I admit, the Muslim view of Jesus is not a completely accurate view of the Savior. Islam generally rejects important key facts about Christ’s life and work. However…Jesus’ Name in Islam
Jesus’ name in Islam is Isa. Some take issue with this and some flat out reject it. I have no issue with it because I know that the Isa mentioned in the Quran is speaking of the Jesus of the Bible. Sure, details of His life, death, resurrection and personhood are missing, but that’s where I and other laborers in God’s Kingdom come in…God – I Have A Problem With My Onion!
“And I need some divine guidance from you! Well, in reality, it will not be from you directly as I understand that this is not one of your most pressing problems of the moment. So I will just have to settle with the opinion of one of your professional representatives here on Earth – my local Rabbi.God – It Seems That My Toilet Is Not Kosher!
