    I gleaned this from a book by RC Sproul by the same title "12 Promises Christians struggle with". The question is Do we believe God or Not?

    He Overcame John 16:33ff One of the main reasons we have a problems accepting the promises of God is SIN. Sin comes so naturally to us that our default position is not to believe God. Adam and Eve failed to believe God, when the Father of lies told them “You will surely not die, ...read more

    based on 7 ratings
     | 3,796 views

    Many Christians struggle with the idea that they aren’t talented, or aren’t capable of serving the Lord through ministry. Here I try to show that every does have a place and a way to serve in the kingdom of God.

    A Ministry for All Sunday June 10, 2007 AM Rudy Meoli was an average baseball player at best.
