  • Not reading Bible a dangerous place for professing Christians to be

    Have you ever read the entire Bible? How often do you read the Bible?
    Only 16 percent of churchgoers read the Bible daily and 25 percent of churchgoers don’t read the Bible at all, according to Read the Bible For Life.
    How can we call ourselves Christians if we are not diligent in studying the inspired word of God?
    Paul writes in 1 Timothy 4:16, “Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.”

  • Hoping Steve Jobs accepted Jesus Christ

    Computer whiz Steve Jobs was a pioneer, a business tycoon, a visionary, a leader and a global influence.
    He was also reportedly a Buddhist.
    I certainly hope Mr. Jobs accepted Christ as his personal savior. If not, according to what Jesus Christ said, he is not in heaven, which is all the more reason for us to make sure our friends and family have truly accepted Jesus
    Christ as savior, lord and God because “false religion” takes us to hell.

  • Sharing the word is every Christian’s duty

    What do you remember about the first Apostle, Andrew?
    Without some research, I personally can’t think of much about Andrew. He is one of the lesser known Apostles, and mentioned only briefly in the Bible.
    However, his message goes deep. John 1: 41, “The first thing Andrew did (after he had met Christ) was to find his brother Simon and tell him we have found the Messiah.”
    Then, in John 6:8-9, Andrew introduces the boy with five small loaves and two small fish to Jesus who then fed 5,000.
