  • For eternal life, seek God’s, not man’s word

    You wouldn’t sign a contract or buy any significant product without doing due diligence to make sure the transaction was valid and the reward equaled the investment, would you?
    Yet we place so little significance on “making our calling and election sure,” risking our eternal security.
    Many sincere individuals base their salvation on some emotional decision, or feeling, perhaps made as a child.

  • Why isn’t the Bible good enough?

    Let’s have a conversation.
    I cannot understand why, for some people, the Bible simply isn’t good enough. After all, God was clear in his warnings about changing or adding to it, and the penalties for doing so are fairly stiff.  
    If you’re not aware of God’s warnings or penalties, please read on.  
    Now, I have attended church my entire life under the Christian faith.  
    My religious beliefs are based solely on the Bible written over a span of roughly 1,500 years, concluding in the first century.

  • 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.

  • A stroke of faith changes football star

    Forty-one years ago, Steve Starnes played football alongside Al Cowlings and O.J. Simpson as the Buffalo Bills fifth-round draft pick out of the University of Tampa.
    He also played for the Green Bay Packers and the (former) Boston Patriots.
     He was big and burly. Then he injured his neck and his professional football career, the dream of many little boys and grown men, was cut short. Five years ago a stroke nearly took his life.
