  • Are We Real Christians Or Just Pretending To Be Christians?

    Contributed by David Leach on Jan 13, 2014
    based on 4 ratings

    Unfortunately the vast majority of those who profess Christianity are not in fact Christians but remain spiritually dead in their sins because they have not met Jesus’ one requirement to even see the Kingdom of Heaven, that is, they must be born again spiritually.

    Are we real Christians or just pretending to be Christians? Jer 3:10 …Judah (My own people) has not turned to Me with her whole heart, but in pretense, says the LORD. Sometimes we hear that there are living today about two billion people who are Christians. Unfortunately the vast more

  • What's In Your Heart?

    Contributed by Steve Taylor on Aug 4, 2018

    People can be heartbreakers, coldhearted, stonehearted, give you heartburn, be halfhearted, and even greenhearted, but we need sweethearted and kindhearted individuals in our life at all times.

    Some might say, living a Christian life sounds hard. They believe that they couldn’t possibly make it as a Christian. Well, it is hard sometimes. I can’t say that it’s all Halle Lujah and Amen being a Christian. It’s hard work; it’s a struggle, and at times, it just breaks your heart. Let me more

Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God or you could even say co-heirs with Christ, since we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider more

    The Antichrist does not appear as a man in a red suit and a pitchfork. Antichrist does not mean "against Christ" but rather "substitute christ". The false apes the real and tries to replace it.
