You can’t play games fairly without keeping the rules and the same logic applies to life. Rules set boundaries for us in how we should live but they don’t stop us from stop doing what wrong. God’s law is not the cause of our wrongdoing it simply reveals it to us.
What words come to mind when you hear the term theology? Dry…Dreary…Doubtful…DULL? You’re not alone.
Too often we don’t realize that theology—thinking about God—is an intimate part of our everyday lives, rather than something that takes place in ivory towers crowded with bearded men crouched over dusty books. We each engage in theology because we each have a set of beliefs about God. But rather than being content with our ideas about God as they now stand, we should each have a desire to know God better than we do today. If you’ve got that desire, then you’re ready to do theology!
Let these resources point the way to a faith more deeply connected with who God actually says He is.
There has only ever been one perfect gift, and it was given more than 2,000 years ago. This gift is too wonderful for words. In fact, the Bible says it’s indescribable.
The first Christmas was simple, not a lavish event. Jesus’ birth remains the purest and most beautiful story in all of history.
We are incurably curious about the spiritual realm. Although our imaginations tend to overrun truth don’t ever doubt the presence of angels, for they are about us and above us. And, who knows, maybe even within one or two of us.
The glory of the Lord was revealed in the most humble way—in a way no one expected. One day we will really understand what the word “glory” means, but for now, all we know is it's one of the heaviest and weightiest words we can use to describe our Saviour.
Acceptance or rejection of Christ’s work on the cross determines our destiny of heaven or hell. But how we live—choosing to sin or not—and the kind of sin we commit matters now, and for eternity.
The Bible never describes the work of demons in the lives of believers directly in terms of immorality. In other words, to say a believer has a “spirit of lust”—as if his real problem is a demon—assumes something the Bible never teaches.
The Devil was blame-worthy for his deception. But he did not make her take the fruit. Adam and Eve gave in to their own desires and made a deliberate choice for which they and they alone were responsible.
Because of God's work on our behalf, Christians now have the hope of redemption by grace through faith.
What’s your definition of truth? Is truth debatable or is it absolute? If you’re struggling with knowing what’s true, you’re not alone.
