Posted by Joe Paris on

“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” — Matthew 12:30 A person who doesn’t confess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior is an enemy of God and is destined for hell. A harsh truth, but a truth nonetheless. Some see...

The Need for a Savior


Posted by Steve Glenn on

Sometimes people know they need help. There are times when the need for a savior is clear. At other times, however, people make sure to spend a lot of time being nice and accepting of others, and it can be tempting to look around and to feel really good about ourselves and our efforts. In times...

Good News in a Bad Place


Posted by Ian Crosby on

Good news has to enter into a not-as-good situation, or else it’s not good news. Let me explain. Every kid wants to go to Disney World. Literally every kid. If you think your kid probably doesn’t care that much, you’re probably wrong. It was on Christmas morning, when I was...

Getting Connected


Posted by Randy Wade on

Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man...
