  • Two different meanings for submit and commit

    The men I spoke about last time discovered that their true identity as believers was paramount to change. That was the first of the keys to unlocking the secret to change. Their second discovery was the actual and literal meaning of two little words: commit and submit.

    Those two little words look the same and are often used interchangeably, but when you discover the real difference they open the door of understanding further. Discovery of their secret happened almost ten years ago for me.

  • Charleston victims and families demonstrate real Christianity

    We saw evil personified last week.

    Maybe you didn’t see it in flesh and blood, unless you were in Charleston, South Carolina, but we saw the photos and videos. We couldn’t miss Dylann Roof’s mop haircut and glazed eyes in the daily papers and in the national news.

    We should have been heartbroken. Nine people went to their church for Bible study and never came home. Their ages ranged from 26 to 87.

  • Christianity: a relationship with a person

    You never really know how people perceive what you write till someone stops you and asks a question. That is what happened after my last contribution. The question: “What was it that these men discovered that really helped them achieve change?”
    As we spoke we were able to narrow it down to three primary ingredients that helped opened the door for them. The first ingredient focused on Christianity not being a religion, but a relationship with a person. And, that person just happens to be Christ.

  • Bible shows it’s never too late to change

    By Larry Coleman, Faith Columnist

    It’s never too late to change. Is that really true?

    Recently a friend shared about a men’s small group he was part of some years back. He said that without exception each man shared that they had tried and failed to change themselves.

    As Christians they could not figure out why? They had followed all the religious rules and world’s suggestions, but no success.

  • Stop catfishing and tell the truth about yourself

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    Have you heard of catfishing?

    Several years ago, a young guy named Nev Schulman fell in love with a woman he “met” on Facebook. She was beautiful, a musician.

    Megan sent Nev photos of herself and MP3s of her songs. They talked on the phone — and he was smitten. So, of course he wanted to meet her.

    However, when he traveled from New York to Michigan to finally meet her, he discovered that Megan was really Angela, Megan’s stepmother.
