  • The Sacred Cow

    Contributed by John A. Peck on Nov 3, 2009
    based on 6 ratings
     | 5,019 views

    We don’t have high regard for cows in our culture. Even the term, sacred cow, is funny to us. However, God has given cows a special place in the Holy Scriptures.

    One of my favorite Far Side cartoons shows a herd of cattle standing at a fence, facing a leader. In the background is a large urban city in flames. In the caption, the leader cow is saying, “Evidently, Agent (some number) has accomplished her mission.” Cows. Even the word is funny. We ...read more

    Don’t let your “sacred cows” keep you from experiencing all that God has for you.

    When you were a kid, didn’t you hate it when your parents said "no" to something – and when you asked "why?" they just replied: "because I said so." "Well, who died and made you God?" you thought, but never dared utter. As a parent I have tried to always give a reason – however lame it might be ...read more

     | 2,892 views

    Although we cannot offer a fool-proof plan that is guaranteed to work, we can look at some proverbs that will help us be more likely to be on the winning side of life’s biggest issues. But we must be willing to surrender our sacred cows.

    Giant Issues in Life (Proverbs 22:6, 15, 7,9) 1. Upon waking, a woman said to her husband, "I just dreamt that you gave me a necklace of pearls. What do you think it means?" The man smiled and kissed his wife. "You'll know tonight," he softly whispered. That evening, the man came home with a ...read more

    What this woman does stands in stark contrast to all of the other players. When we read of her deed side by side with Jesus’ hate-filled adversaries, the treacherous Judas, and the confused and misguided disciples, we can’t help but ask ourselves, where

    The book of Nehemiah gives us insight into what it will take for the Power of God to be restored in your city.

    The walls of the city of Jerusalem lay in ruins for more than a century. A city wall in ruins was a bad thing in those days.

    Cage fighting is a particularly gruesome way of fighting, and yet Paul used the fighting of his day (more brutal than MMA) to describe Timothy's responsibilities. What could we possibly learn from MMA that could make us better servants of Christ?

    How many of you know the meaning of these letters used to describe a sporting event: MMA? (Mix Martial Arts). It’s kind of like boxing where the contestants not only hit each other with their fists, but also with their feet and knees and elbows. It’s also called “Cage ...read more

  • What Exactly Is A "Layman?"

    Contributed by Mark H. Stevens Thd on Jan 24, 2014
     | 3,549 views

    The Church is very ineffective because it is Clergy Driven and not driven by ALL believers with a passion for souls!

    One problem I have found in the modern church is that we have made the church a CLERGY run entity. God meant the church to be driven by ALL of the saints. We are a body of BELIEVERS and BELIEVERS are supposed to CAST OUT DEVILS, PREACH THE GOSPEL, and LAY HANDS on the sick. (James 5:16 and ...read more
