    Fourth in the series "Meet the Cast." As you study Jesus’ life you realize that even though He did not lay aside his deity, He did humble himself as a man, to serve all humanity. So Jesus understands what we are facing in our lives.

    Third in the series "Meet the Cast." So often when we think of Satan we think of scary movies or evil atrocities in society. Though these may be evidence of Satan’s work, he does his best work looking good.

    I had the privilege of attending a screening of “The Passion of the Christ for Pastors only and was audience to an interview with Mel Gibson regarding his movie. He stated one of the most profound insights I have ever heard from any theologian, let alone a movie star. Mel was asked “Why was the ...read more
