Be an ordinary Christian

Today I was waiting to get my daily dose of the Word from my favorite non-shouting Bible teacher on Christian satellite television. An advertisement aired in the station break for another show at some time and a man was shouting from the pulpit that "there [...]

Get closer to God? Impossible!

For a number of years, I yearned to be and feel closer to God. I struggled to spend a sufficient amount of time with Him in prayer or reading my Bible. Often I fell asleep during the endeavor. I even struggled to pray without ceasing [...]

Three Christians, Three Boats

With the coming of the victorious life will be the power to live in spite of. Many of us know the power to live on account of, but not in spite of. When our surroundings are favorable, and life is with us, we go on. [...]

No Room for Them

To many people, the Bible is an old-fashioned book that's fine for little old ladies and funerals but of limited or no value in their daily life. How wrong they are! The Bible can be an exciting book and more up-to-date than tomorrow's newspaper. I [...]

About Nothing

About nothing, one may think, nothing can be said. It does look like an unlikely subject for a teaching. Plato would disagree; he said "I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing." Around 1600 Shakespeare [...]

“We Want Another Pentecost”

I learned an essential lesson as a young Christian, and that was not to take my theology from hymns or praise and worship songs, but only from the Bible. For example, in the denomination in which I was brought up, we sang this song written [...]
