Let’s ask ourselves whether we have the mind of a mule or a child…or the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5-8). Friends, God wants us to have the mind of Christ. Jesus chose to be obedient, even to the point of giving His life. May we be the same!… Read More “I Gave Up Childish Ways”
Why did God make the son of man a little lower than the angels? How is man lower than the angels if we are made in the image of God?
Hebrews 2:7-8 seems contradictory. Does it mean that while Christ was on earth He was lower than the angels, but now there is coming a time when all will be under His feet? Or did that occur as soon as He died?… Read More Bible Q&A: Two-For-One About Angels
In the end, the method in which we eat of the bread and drink of the cup – i.e., whether we tear open these small packages or have them served to us in trays – is not important in the sight of God as far as worship is concerned.

This is why disciples of Christ must always be looking out that they are truly righteous in the sight of God and have not fallen away from his ways.… Read More A Very Serious Warning From God

Whenever I’m asked to officiate a wedding, it’s something which I consider an honor and privilege to do. Weddings are always special times to me, because they signal the start of a union and partnership between two people who love each other and are committed to each other for life. Unfortunately, it seems that more and more marriages are ending in divorce or separation. It seems that many husbands and wives fail to understand how to live with each other and be patient and considerate of one another.… Read More Divine Marriage Counseling
Most of the Old Testament Messianic prophecies were fulfilled in the person, character, life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus of Nazareth. Any that would still be fulfilled today would have to do with foretelling of what Jesus still does for us today while he is seated at the right hand of the throne of God (Mk. 16:19).… Read More Bible Q&A: Are There Any Messianic Prophecies That Are Being Fulfilled Today?
