    based on 54 ratings

    So often, there is a huge disparity between what we say, and what we actually do. The Bible makes the connection or links “believing” to “behavior.” The two appear to be inseparable. When we try to divorce these two terms (as they relate to Christianity),

  • Getting To The Heart Of Things – Part 1 Series

    Contributed by Warren Lamb on Oct 8, 2007
    based on 3 ratings

    In our drama today, we see it once again. This is not an authorization to blast people full-force with anger, vehemence or vitriol. It is, however, a demonstration to us that we have the biblical, God-ordained, Christian duty to be truly honest when we en

    We could actually entitle this study “Jesus and the Forbidding Pharisees, Part 6”. What we encounter today is almost a continuation of our study of Matthew 12.

  • The "In Thing"

    Contributed by Ron Hicks on Jun 29, 2007
    based on 7 ratings

    Can Christianity be trendy? Absolutely! It’s faddish, popular, and contemporary. But if its not real to you, it will eventually cease to gratify and feed your curiosity, then you will find something else that will. Hell will be full of trendies.
