Mega Church Pastor:  Preaching Verse by Verse is Cheating

Author: Brian Smith

Do pastors who preach verse by verse through books of the Bible cheat?  Are they taking the easy way out when it comes to preaching?  That’s the claim of the pastor of one of the largest churches in America.  But what do the Scriptures say?

A Warning to the Nations

Author: Ivette Irizarry

Maybe it’s because I am getting old, but every time I open my Bible these days it strikes me how very TODAY it is. For example, I am currently studying the book of Psalms, and a few weeks ago read Psalm 2.

My Grandmother’s Arms - A Call to Confession

Author: Melissa Church

I have my grandmother’s arms. I’m not especially pleased about this development. You see, my grandmother was on the…plump side, and her arms were…plump…and flabby and cool. Now they’re mine. At some point we have to accept that this is the genetic hand we’ve been dealt, and no matter how hard we work those triceps, we’re just gonna have flabby arms. Doesn’t mean we stop working. Doesn’t mean we stop wearing longer sleeves. Just means that we know there are limitations to the outcome of our efforts to reverse or hide our condition.

The Accidental Witness

Author: Stephen Armstrong

Every Christian is called to be witness for Christ, but if we reserve our witnessing for the “official” moments, then we’re missing the best opportunities to spread the Gospel.

153 Fishes = I AM G-D?

Author: Brady Stephenson

For centuries, people have wondered why the Bible records that 153 fish were caught by the disciples after Jesus told them to throw their nets on the opposite side of the boat in John 21:4-12. In Hebrew, every letter has a number attached to it. The Hebrews used their alphabet as a numbering system. The numbers attached to the letters in a Hebrew word could be added together to give a numerical total. The number 153 is the numerical total for the Hebrew words “Ani Elohim”—I am G-d… OR IS IT?

Be Quiet and Be Quiet

Author: Melissa Church

This is one of those posts I have debated for days. To write or not to write, that has been the question. I’ve sung this song before, first verse, second verse, and chorus. But it’s an issue that continues to perplex me, and because the song is on a continuous loop in my head, it’s one that I’m sure I’m not seeing clearly. You let me know.
