Receive, Reject, or Redeem?

Halloween is coming up and there are all sorts of events and even critiques how we should engage the world.  Kids will dress up, adults will give out candy, and all this will be done without any thought or real tie to its pagan history.  American are superstitious and this superstitious is heightened during Halloween.  For example many Chicago Cubs fans foolish believe in “The Curse or the Billy Goat” upon their team.  This belief originated when the “Billy Goat Tavern” owner was kicked out of Wrigley Field because of the smell of of his pet goat at the game.

What is the Eye of the Needle?

By Cameron Buettel I haven’t always sat under the teaching ministry of John MacArthur. In fact, earlier parts of my Christian walk have been tarnished by over-exposure to some really bad Bible teachers, and attendance in some very man-centered churches.

Drifting is a common occurrence in everyone’s life.  Companies drift from their founder’s vision, Denominations drift

Anger – A Personal Foul

On Monday night (10/3/2016) Odell Beckham got a Personal foul penalty during the Monday night football game because he could not control his emotions.  NFL writer, Jeremy Bergman, comments, “[Xavier] Rhodes’ aggressive coverage and an iffy late hit drove Beckham to commit an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty early in the game and then lower his shoulder on the Vikings cornerback out of bounds on a later play.… But Beckham’s reputation as a hot-head diva has also made him a target for strong-willed cornerbacks who know what buttons to push. “ This example shows how important emotions are to our Christians walk with
