  • K-Rations Series

    Contributed by Roshelle Brenneise on Aug 22, 2021

    An army moves on it's stomach. Nutrition provides energy for the fight ahead and so it is with the Christian army.

    October 01, 2016 There is an old saying: “An army marches on its stomach” – if an army doesn’t feed its men it’s not going anywhere. Without food the troops can’t march, can’t maneuver, and they can’t fight. During WWII, the US tried solving this issue with “K rations”, which consisted of more

    Contributed by Scott Spencer on Jan 28, 2012

    What is it about the idea of God that makes many people uncomfortable? The idea of God does make many people feel that way, you know. For a country that has "In God We Trust" on its money, we are pretty confused about what kind of God we trust.

  • Romans 3:1-8 Series

    Contributed by George Mclaughlin Jr. on Feb 7, 2010

    Man's reasoning and God's don't match up very well. Sinners, even very religious sinners, easily find fault with God, in how He deals with sin and righteousness. Our only hope for "making sense of it all" is to BELIEVE and accept EVERYTHING He says, rathe

    based on 55 ratings

    The willful rejection of God from His due place in life leads persons who were created to worship their Creator into worshiping the creation.

    based on 4 ratings

    New Year's Day 1989: Jonah, running from his responsibility, fell asleep. It might have been the sleep of a rationalized conscience; or depression. But a greater than Jonah is here, Christ, who can heal both conscience and soul.

    It's not easy to stay out of the storms, no matter what escape you plan. It's just not easy to keep from getting rained on and buffeted around when the storm is coming, no matter what means you use to take shelter.

  • An Appeal To Reason

    Contributed by Brett Dague on Jan 8, 2015

    God's appeal to the rational mind using the principles of philosophy.

    This is a very unique passage of Scripture, for God has asked us not just to take what He has said at face value, but He has asked us to reason it out.
