Walking the Walk – Being a Real and Relevant Christian in Today’s World

Praying in the Spirit

An Encounter With a Modern Day Witch Hunter

Contrary to popular belief, modern day Witches are no longer the “other,” but are in fact your neighbor, attorney, waitress, and teacher. Witches have gone main stream and believe it or not, they don’t make sacrifice to nor worship Satan. In fact, Wicca does not even recognize the existence of Christianity’s dark menace.

Christian Weight Loss Scripture – Determine Your Resources

Bible Memory Verses – Make Them Effective and Fun

I was not a big fan of Bible memory verses when I first began to create and teach children’s church lessons. I resisted adding memory verse activities into lessons I created.

I Did Not Do This to Myself

Keeping in mind that life happens; have you ever heard it said that where you are in life is a result of the decisions you have made? If you are in a good place, you are probably feeling pretty good about that statement. If you are in a not so good place, you may be looking for someone to blame. You could blame parents, relatives, girlfriends, boyfriends, husbands, wives, friends, children, even the boss or co-worker. It is true that any of these people could have had an important role in the decisions, but the decision in regards to you, was yours.

Islam and Science

Since the inception of the modern age, science and technologies had developed and innovated millions of things to change our living standards as it has always inspired our lives. From education to luxuries, science has played the significant role in improving our lives. Whereas, science had played a vital role in changing our views, thoughts and lives, Islam has also played its part.

Breakup Youth Group Cliques

Cliques and gossip will creep into your youth group unless you take an active stance against them. Popular culture and social behavior has become so dominate, and some church culture so compliant, that your youth group can simply become a reflection of “the world” without a strong Godly effort on your part. No where is this more apparent than in the way the students interact with each other.

LDS Church Meetinghouses – Mormon Chapels and Architecture

My family and I were invited to clean our LDS meetinghouse the morning of general conference. When we arrived, a member of the bishopric asked me to follow him. The stake leaders asked him to add the wiring for a new internet connection, and he had been working on installing it that morning.

For I Believe God (1)
