  • Hated for your love of God? Congrats!

    Do you ever step back and take notice of how terribly our culture is rapidly disintegrating from a moral standpoint?
    Many celebrities and so-called role models showcase themselves with sexual immorality and vile behavior that mocks the rules and guidelines set out for Christians in the Bible.
    Homosexuality, violence and broken families are the new norm. Sin is accepted in our society and portrayed as glamorous.

  • Blessed are the peacemakers for God

    Back in the day, there were “men’s meetings.”
    These took place before the regular business meeting, often a couple of hours earlier. Not that the women didn’t have a voice in the business meeting, however; the lion’s share of the decisions were made in these “men’s meetings.”
    Such was one of these. Again, as a young minister, it was an eye opening experience. It all began with the normal task of filling the pulpit on an upcoming Sunday, while our pastor was going to be away in revival services.

  • Sowing your seed in thorns, rock or soil?

    I was talking with a friend of mine who does some work for me from time to time this week and found out some really interesting information.
    I’ve known “Ritchie” for quite some time, yet never really knew a lot about him personally. Out of the blue he tells me how he has spent much of his young life in jail and even federal prison.
    I was taken aback about that, and certainly had to ask lots of questions.

    Alton Christian Church

  • God doesn’t care who comes in first

    Nowadays, all you hear and see on television is something related to politics. It’s an important topic indeed.
    So many yearn for the top spot of honor in our culture today. The whole idea of being popular and prestigious is appealing to most of us.
    However, the Bible tells us a lot about what God wants of us, and how being the most popular or being on top is of little value to God. Ecclesiastes was written by Solomon, who had all of the money, power and possessions a man could want.

  • Seeking God’s face without a formula

    Circle this date on your calendar: Feb. 15, “John Frum Day.”
    Celebrated on the remote South Pacific island of Tanna, on John Frum Day islanders dress up as American G.I.s, with “USA” painted in red on their bare chests and backs and march in perfect step with bamboo rifles on their shoulders.

  • Ignoring God didn’t work for pharaoh, and certainly won’t work for you

    It’s interesting how we often try to follow God’s rules on our terms, not his.
    How many times have we thought about trying to quit sinning, yet plan on doing it again?
    I know I have, and in my mind often think, “Well maybe next week or next month or later in life I will stop doing that.”
    The pharaoh of Egypt in the book of Exodus kept putting off God’s commands when he kept the children of Israel in slavery. God brought about plague after plague against the tyranny of the Egyptians.
