Becoming More Like Jesus

Every year the number one goal of every Christian should be the same—becoming more like Jesus this year than we were last year. Romans 8:28-29.  This text makes clear that “God causes all things to work together for good” in our lives.  The question is, what is the “good?”  Verse 29 answers that question.  God uses everything in our lives to...

The Positive Witness of a Church - Part Two

The Key to Effective Evangelism The most important reason the first century church was effective in personal and mass evangelism was because they had such a positive witness as a local body of believers in their community. The same is true today about a church.  If a church has a negative witness in their community, they will have no credibility to do ministry and evangelism. ...

The Positive Witness of a Church - Part One

The Key to Effective Evangelism There is no doubt the early church was effective both in personal and mass evangelism.  But, the question is why were they so effective?  They were not effective in their outreach just because it was a passion and they worked hard at it, but because they had such a positive witness as a body of believers in their community.

The Consequences and the Cure of Sin

The Consequences and the Cure of Sin   Every temporal and spiritual problem that mankind experiences is because of sin.  Every evil and heartache that society faces is because of sin.  Society tries to suppress the truth of God and exchange the truth of God for a lie (Romans 1:18b, 25a).  They try to redefine sin and live like it does not exist (1 John 1:8, 10) while at...

Same Sex Marriage

Back in 1987 homosexual activists laid out a six point strategy to radically change America’s perception of homosexual behavior. Talk about gays and gayness as loudly and often as possible. Portray gays as victims, not aggressive challengers. Give homosexual protectors a “just” cause. Make gays look good and make the victimizers look bad. Get corporate America and...

Let's Go Back to God's Blueprint

There are many evangelical churches today which are drifting away from the biblical model of what Christ wants His church to be.  Many leaders have bought into the idea that the way to attract more people to their church (their standard of success) is to become more like the world in their philosophy, music, style of worship, their dress, and organization.  But, just the opposite is...

Church: Success Comes By His Resources, Not Ours

Zechariah 4:6b—“Not by might nor by power, but by My  Spirit,” says the Lord of Hosts.  NASB I have just read about another mega church and movement that will be closing its doors on January 1, 2015.  What started off with so much hope and promise is ending as a disaster and another black eye for the church.  It is evident this church has failed.  It...
