  • Is Faith A Force, Tool, Power, Or?

    Contributed by Dr. Craig Nelson on Jul 29, 2019
    based on 4 ratings
     | 7,123 views

    One of the biggest errors that have crept into the church over the years has been the teaching that ‘faith’ is a thing, power, or force to obtain or possess.

  • Talk Is Cheap

    Contributed by Gordon Pike on Mar 6, 2019
     | 5,126 views

    Actions or works may not create faith but they can reveal the substance and form of a person’s faith. To me, works is our faith made visible. “For just as a body without the spirit is dead” … a corpse … “so faith without works is also dead” … a corpse (James 2:26).

    [Put up picture of me on screen.] Let me tell you a little bit about that man in the photo. He was 40 years old when that picture was taken. He was 20 months sober at the time. Well … “sober” is not the right word. He was a dry drunk” … which means that he hadn’t picked up a drink in 20 ...read more

    Body, Soul and Spirit have been defined as three essential parts of man.

    Kristi Ling Spencer, a life and happiness strategist once remarked: “Caring for your body, mind, and spirit is your greatest and grandest responsibility.

At this point we begin to complain. Giving up control is ...read more
